Don't judge me for drawing it so crappy Tongue
You draw better than I do lol. Okay it's working:
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/20790433/decalstuff.zip

The alpha is sloppy though, so there are still black pixels around it.

Here's what I did:
1. Your picture was 384x384 (or something) so I changed it to a 512x512
2. Inverted the picture (you don't have to do this yourself)
3. Created an alpha channel for it
4. Rotated 180, flipped horizontal
5. Saved as dds5 interpolated alpha
6. Created the .mat file

I'm guessing step 1 should solve your problem. The rest is simply optimizing and making it look correct. If you do not manage to do these steps with the "full version" you can ask me for help and I'll do it again/explain more thoroughly.

This works with something like a barrel, or something round, right?
I have a texture for the base and a texture for the top and bottom.

Decals are intended as a quick way to apply a texture onto immovable objects. While it would work on a barrel, it is not intended for objects that are meant to move.
