Are graphics tied to specific scenarios? I tried the tutorial yesterday, and the game looked like the old AT:WW2.

http://www.matrixgames.com/products/345/screenshots/Advanced.Tactics:.World.War.II

How can I use the new graphics, which are shown on the ATG-product page? The old graphics remind me of TOAW 3, and the different terrains are sometimes hard to differentiate from one another.

I would appreciate any help on the matter, thank you.

You can probably swap out the graphics folders. Just rename them.

I wish it was that simple. That you can just "swap them" with the old ones. But it's just not so.

The tileset IS dependant on scenario IIRC, the old graphics are in ATG, they just generally dont get used. I think what you want to do is use New Random Game, or Classic Random Game, then change the masterfile to ATG, not classic.

Its been so long since ive done the tutorial I dont remember which masterfile it uses.

the tutorial uses AT graphics. the new random games use ATG graphics as do the new scenarios.

OK. Thanks for the reply.

Actually I have already started a few small scenarios, and so far the game has been quite entertaining. The only thing that bugs me with the AI, are those pesky 1 squad units, which try to encircle my front line and cut off my supplies.

No Harriet61 you can´t.

First of all the graphics are not structured the same way, secondly some graphics have been omitteed in the original compared to the new graphics, and vice versa. The existance of light forrests in the original and their non-existance in the original, for instance. And i could come up with alot more examples if i wanted to...

But if you don´t believe me, go ahead, make your experiences on your own...

Yeah and I'm not sure why they do it?? They copy/paste parts of a previous post, without a link to wedding dresses or gloves. So what's the point? Do they want to infiltrate or something? Become a regular member with X number of posts and a register date some months ago?
What happens now is that regular forummembers sometimes accuse new members of being a spammer, which they aren't. So the spammers are invading and annoying as always...

But why?

I'm guessing that when their post count is high they are allowed to post links to nefarious sites elsewhere on the Net?
