Sir:

Looks great. Any timetable for its release. I always appreciate a new Mod as a change of pace from what I have been using for a while.

Thanks

are there any graphics which distinguish capital cities from the rest of the urban area's? I'm not looking to change the entire graphics of the game just a graphic which one can use as their capital city. Thanks

Use <8 at the beginning of the place name. <8PARIS for the example below.

Ah that sounds familiar I'm more or less constantly tweaking and tinkering with my AltGraphics folder.

Patience young Padawan. I am still finetuning things, correcting some small errors and such. Added numbered exclusion zones (had this in my old mods too but this time it looks smarter ).

Haven't seen this mod before. From your text I assume the shaded hexes are "exclusion" zones. Right? Really nice.

Please consider making a similar mod for hex ownership. Current player would have hexes with no shading, opposing player's hexes would have shading similar to the exclusion zone mod.

For myself, I find a bit of shading to distinguish the opponent's hexes much better than the flags and dotted lines TOAW currently uses.

Cheers for your efforts.

Regards, RhinoBones

I want to pick the SCAF icons mod. Can anyone help me with the basic? Which files I need to change to get the 2d unit pictures?

Is Telumar map mod project still alive or is it dead?

I am interested as well but I don't think he ever released it, I guess you could try to PM the guy.
Telumar I think he's been MIA for a while.

Thx Meyer :)

Do you know which graphic is responsible for displaying the pictures in the unit icon?

Also I cannot get any GUI modifications to work. I installed them in the AlternateGraphics folder. Or it should be any other folder?

A question for the graphics department - I'm using the Square Counters Mod, and I made a few changes myself, and now in Huge 2D Mode the Loss Settings appear differently. As seen below, the first 'dot' for Minimize appears normal, but the next two for Limit and Ignore appear as lines. This is using the bmp's [not the png's]. While I can see that the Huge 2D appears to use a different source from or in the Numbers file for the dots, I don't know what they are, so I can't determine what I changed to make these appear differently.

Each set of colors has its own icon set. They are in the main Graphics folder, for example units_1_green_1.

I am not sure about this, but I thought they would be read from AltGraphics, so maybe try the Graphics Folder, or the scenario specific Graphics folder if there is one. And always back up the originals !

Do they look good with the regular counters?. In my case, normal bmp counters look bad in huge view, in fact, even worse than yours. I would guess that the screen resolution could be a factor here.

But I don't care since I think png look so much better

Just to add to Steve's answer, make sure that the mod files are in the AltGraphics folder, sometimes while unzipping a subfolder is created and that is not gonna work.

Stop staying stuff like that, there could be children around !

I checked other scenarios that use the stock graphics and all is good, so its something I've done unwittingly.

Well, good for you. This is how mine look at 2560x1440 (pictured zoomed to see more detail)

At that zoom in you can see how the lower 'dot' is different from the two above it. So its using something different, which is what I can't find, or is what I don't know how is done. As you can see in the shot in post #282, my two dots above are truncated, or are being impinged upon, or I screwed up some pixels somewhere, or something else.

Looks like the dots are crowded causing the dots above the first to be cut off. The dot is located between the last 'X' and the 'L' on the right hand side of Numbers.bmp, H_numbers.bmp and the corresponding .png files. So if something was done to shift the position or size of that dot that change will have an impact on how they are displayed on the counter. Maybe they were moved up a couple of pixels. In the Numbers.bmp file the dots should be one pixel short of covering their color bar. Touch the bottom but not the top of their color bar. Hope it's something that simple.

I've just bought TOAW III with the 30% off discount. I installed the game, applied the latest patch and set about installing a graphics mod to make the game look better. I chose Classic Redux II as I noticed it in this thread a few pages back.

Am I right in thinking I just need to copy and paste the contents of the mod into the AltGraphics folder in the TOAW III main directory? I did that and then copied the Almost Olive GUI mod as I like that one.

I compared my game with the screenshots here:

https://thetoawbeachhead.wordpress.com/2013/10/06/classic-redux-ii/

and all seems to be well apart from the desert graphics in the WWII North Africa scenarios. The area around Knightsbridge looks different in my game than it does in the screenshot on the webpage listed mentioned above.

Have I installed this correctly or is there something else I should be doing?


Any help would be much appreciated.

Make sure to create a folder with the exact name of the scenario in the AltGraphics folder and copy the special desert tiles in there.

There is not only one, but 10 GUI Mods!

Also note that the download contains an Opart 3 fonts .ini file with the settings and fonts that have been used for the screenshots. Please also read the ‘readme’ text file that is contained in the download.
