Default Need help adding a new button in ARB widescreen

Hey gents I'm trying to add a new button in ARB Widescreen for Stieblers change grid mod. I have figured out the right POS in the menu_1024_768.ini after some trial and error i noticed they are spaced out in intervals of 66 in the POS= line. I can get the button working but I've managed to black out and break the weather report button and for some reason my request new grid button is showing the weather report icon. Not sure if the game can only have one icon assigned at a time or not. Im no modder but i have been able to line everything up and get what im trying to do working just wondering if someone could take a look at my ini file and see if they can figure out that dang weather report button. i dont know if its as simple as changing a few things or not. Id post a picture but I exceed the limit on its size. I noticed that the send weather report is the only one that has the Color= string in it but I've already tried moving that button pos around with no success. I know the Bkgr is not lined up but that I can fix later. I also added at the end there another 0xFFFFFFFF not sure if that matters but I noticed they equaled the number of buttons so I added it for the new one. If I hover my mouse over the dark area it will pop up next to my cursor send weather report but nothing will happen when I click the void.

You may have to changed the ParentID to match the rest of the section.
