Anyone realize that the railroad PNG graphics have an error?
5th row and 7th column should have instead of the south running line a south-west running line.
This is so in:

Fix is done but these silly file limits drive me crazy, does anyone know a good place to host small files?

What's the name of the file with the graphics for oil wells, mines, industry, etc? I'd like to put some of that to my own uses.

It's built-in to 3.4. Read section VIII, item 9 of the 3.4 part of the What's New document.

Pleasant surprise...

As I was happily modifying the little man to be something else, a nasty thought crossed my mind.

What if the program insisted on reading the file from the altgraphics folder rather than the file from the scenario-specific folder?

...then I'd have to change the altgraphics file itself -- which would involve manually switching back and forth from the original file to the modified file for anyone who wanted to play the scenario with the look intended.

Happily, it turns out that as it will with entries from the graphics folder, the program will override the file from the altgraphics folder with what is in the scenario-specific folder. You can change any of those little symbols to be anything you want for your specific scenario.

Classic counter mod - 5/7/2013 7:34:32 PM

Classic counter mod of all the huge and normal counter sheets in png format. JSGME ready, just open the rar file and extract to your MOD folder and add. I have tried to keep as close to the original counter colours as possible. All the Nato symbols are standard and should work fine with most scenarios unless the scenario contains modified counter sheets. Vietnam Combat Operations comes to mind here.
Also, as a separate mod, classic counter highlight can be added with JSGME.

Update: I have added the small counter sheets to the classic counters mod.

WIP: GUI Mod Brown

I have been working on a GUI mod the past few days. It is by no means perfect and some might not like it while others might be interested. This mod does not in any way reflect on my creative abilities but is rather a collection of ideas I have seen in some other titles. If anyone is interested I could make a beta version available for testing. The terrain graphics are not mine and is a combination of Telu Mod 3.4 and Classic Redux as well as some stock files. The mod includes a Opart 3 Fonts file as well.

Nice, this looks like the WitE Red..T he icons/buttons are quite some work i think.. though they are too colourful for my taste. ;)

These oval boxes in the pop-up and in the unit info window (upper right corner) - do they display all terrain?

EDIT: The forests in the screenshot - did i make them? If so i couldn't find the file anymore on my HD.. would you mind sending them cariundel at yahoo de?

Thanks for your comments Telumar. WitE uses a textured image, but you are correct I did use a similar colour.
Yes the oval boxes shows all terrain except cannels, there is no cannel background bmp that I could find. I will create one a see if it pops up.
I might have made the forests a bit darker, anyways email send with rar attachment.

More mod ramblings, since I play the game in 2D view only I modified the 3D icon graphics and this is what I came up with. I placed some of the other unit’s info boxes as well to illustrate. Busy with the Soviet and German units now.

Screenshot is taken from the Road to Moscow 1941 scenario.

Wow! I would love to have this if at all possible. I am just now getting into TOAW and this looks so much nicer and easier to read.

Sure, here you go. Lets call it the beta version for now. JSGME ready, just open the rar file and extract to your MOD folder and add.
This is the user interface mod and does not included the unit pictures sorry.

Oh thank you that is wonderful!
Very much appreciated

Now if I can just figure out what pieces and parts of the different terrain mods you are using to get that look too :)

The curse of the neutralframe256 bitmap

I don't know if this may be of interest for anyone, maybe except for me and SCAF.. But there are artefacts or misalignements with neutralframe256.bmp; i wouldn't go as far as to claim that the game's graphic engine is some kind of broken with this file (i actually believe it's intended as the original graphics don't suffer from artefacts..). But for a clean/clear style it just doesn't work right. So, enough cryptic talk.. Here is what it looks like with SCAF's original Mod - yellow arrows indicate the errors:



I fiddled around with it and here's what i got - still there's an artefact (grey line) at the bottom line of the outer frames. This grey line is actually the space in the bitmap that is used for the upper line of the inner frames, so i couldn't fix it without breaking the inner frames. Maybe going with an all dark frame would solve the issue. Or with smaller boxes which i maybe will try later. Anyway.. here's what i looks like now:



File is attached (neutralftrame256.bmp).

Is it possible to make the 'anchorage' graphic invisible ? (I'd like to make all coast hexes 'invadable' but don't want the graphic ruining the map ).

The anchorage symbol is in tiles_misc, just cut it. Take care you got the background right. Background is white (the 'real' white: 0xFFFFFF; 255,255,255) in the bmp version, transparent in the png version.

Thanks, but I did the tiles, h_tiles, s_tiles, d3_tiles, s_d3_tiles, and no change that I can see anywhere, arrghh. So I am doing something wrong. Is it possible you could modify that file and ship it to me ??

Then you did the wrong tiles. Is there a scenario specific folder?

Seriously. You did the tiles, got them in the right place and still got anchorage symbols? Would you mind showing one of the modified tiles?
