Right now all the model imagery has been painstakingly migrated from the original COREd War in the East and altered to match its successor, bar generic Axis imagery (if it's even used). Version 1.1 includes all factory imagery, as well as all leader imagery (except for 24 very camera-shy ones for the Axis minors), and even fills out some of the blanks of the original game.

One word of note: USSR ranks are easily recognizable by their collar tabs (or at least, they were with until late 1942). Furthermore I prefer my imagery to be genuine WW2 imagery, rather than opt for post-WW2 general photos, heavily laden with medals, just because the quality of the image is better. So the main goal has been to include as much WW2 footage, and use the starting rank of the general in 1941 as a rule-of-thumb. Even when that means that the overall quality of the image is affected by that design choice. So as you can see, Zhukov is still Army General rather than Marshal, Rokossovski a 'mere' Lieutenant General, etcetera. To me it just works in-game, but that is my honest opinion. It does credit to the original game though, as a lot of vanilla imagery is using the same base (though not as much as I have done). Furthermore I try to keep true to a proper 'passport photo' design, so tend to use upper torso shots as a rule.

Current version: 1.1 (September 25th, 2021, v. 1.01.09 compatible)
Moving forward I will try to keep updated with new patches and additions, but using version 1.x to signal it is a full set from here-on.

The installer can be downloaded here.

Alternatively, there is a ZIP file for those who are hesitant about using an EXE installer.

To install please start the installer, browse to your game root directory, and extract. It might be advisable to make a back-up of the Dat\Art\Photo directory first, as the game imagery will be overwritten.

Any chance you could make it JSGME compatible? Iím not inclined to run a third-party executable, no offense intended.

EDIT: ZIP file is perfect, thank you!




Bamilus -> RE: MOD: COREd War in the Eeast 2 official release (4/26/2021 7:24:33 PM)

well done, thanks for your work

I have to look into it to see how it works... But I will add a ZIP file as an alternate download option in a jiffy. It will require a bit of tinkering, and the EXE is perfectly safe, but you can make your pick.




briklebritt -> RE: MOD: COREd War in the Eeast 2 official release (4/26/2021 8:38:42 PM)

You are doing fantastic work for us.. Thank you! [&o]




gotthardx -> RE: MOD: COREd War in the Eeast 2 official release (4/27/2021 5:12:11 AM)

great job Thank you very much




Rexzapper -> RE: MOD: COREd War in the Eeast 2 official release (4/27/2021 8:09:00 AM)

Thank you very much, Hagar




melnibonian -> RE: MOD: COREd War in the Eeast 2 official release (4/27/2021 9:11:12 AM)

This is really great!

Thank you very much [:)]




briklebritt -> RE: MOD: COREd War in the Eeast 2 official release (4/27/2021 9:13:16 AM)

Hagar, tested yesterday and looks great!

Axis picture for "Support" is still the old one, would be great if you can include it within your next update. Thanks again :-)

Thanks! And I totally missed the support and air support imagery, consider them added for the next version.




Flor1976 -> RE: MOD: COREd War in the Eeast 2 official release (4/27/2021 10:54:27 AM)

Thank you for your great work




xhoel -> RE: MOD: COREd War in the Eeast 2 official release (4/29/2021 7:17:15 PM)

Fantastic work, looking forward to seeing the Soviet images as well.

PS: The German SMG Squad seems to be using a pic of a trooper with a StG 44, unless im mistaken. Might be worth to give that image to the Sturm Squad (-) element and get an image of a soldier with an MP 40 SMG.

Cheers!

Good catch, consider it to be replaced for the next version.




Hagar -> RE: MOD: COREd War in the Eeast 2 official release (5/1/2021 9:24:24 AM)

Version 0.2 is up, which includes the Soviet model imagery!




Rexzapper -> RE: MOD: COREd War in the Eeast 2 official release (5/1/2021 3:28:24 PM)

Wow, thanks




StratmanWITX -> RE: MOD: COREd War in the Eeast 2 official release (5/1/2021 4:42:47 PM)

Great job!
I just tested zip, super!
Thank you verh much!




pensfanvw -> RE: MOD: COREd War in the Eeast 2 official release (5/1/2021 5:09:42 PM)

Splendid job! Your efforts are greatly appreciated.

Alan




rjs28023 -> RE: MOD: COREd War in the Eeast 2 official release (5/6/2021 4:22:32 PM)

Great job!

The Panzer IIIj in the download has the long 50mm gun, but the game was changed so that the IIIj carries the short 50mm gun.




Hagar -> RE: MOD: COREd War in the Eeast 2 official release (5/8/2021 5:42:21 AM)

Thanks! And I appreciate the feedback, I've replaced the Panzer IIIj image to the short-barreled version. So in the next release it should be fixed.

And could you replace please the MG34 photo with the MG42 photo in the MG42 model?

Thank you again, great job!

Stratman




Hagar -> RE: MOD: COREd War in the Eeast 2 official release (5/9/2021 4:34:17 AM)

That's the problem with these strategy games... When you'd think you did a decent job there is always a history buff around to point out your mistakes. [;)][:D] Added a replacement image for the MG42 for the next release.

I try to be as spot-on as I can, so feedback like this is highly appreciated! Even if it can be a humbling experience at times. [:)]




StratmanWITX -> RE: MOD: COREd War in the Eeast 2 official release (5/9/2021 10:45:38 AM)

Oh... its not surprising, more than 1000 images, plenty of work!

Right now I am enjoy playing your mod, getting a great historical flavor from it!

Regards,
Stratman




Hagar -> RE: MOD: COREd War in the Eeast 2 official release (5/9/2021 5:06:22 PM)

It certainly has been so far, but it's fun to find imagery that tells the story you want to tell it at a glance... And so far it seems there is an audience for it. [:)]

CJM -> RE: MOD: COREd War in the Eeast 2 official release (5/18/2021 12:46:33 AM)

Mucho thanks! Looks terrific!




Hagar -> RE: MOD: COREd War in the Eeast 2 official release (5/18/2021 4:58:50 AM)

Most welcome, and thanks for your feedback! [:)]




Rosseau -> RE: MOD: COREd War in the Eeast 2 official release (5/19/2021 1:13:57 AM)

Much appreciated. It was the first thing I downloaded after the game itself!

Now all we need is a great counter/terrain graphics mod. But it will come.




Rick402 -> RE: MOD: COREd War in the Eeast 2 official release (5/20/2021 3:34:47 AM)

what is the "Root Directory"? id like to use the launcher but i dont want to screw it up.




Hagar -> RE: MOD: COREd War in the Eeast 2 official release (5/22/2021 4:13:00 AM)

The root directory is the main directory the game resides... On my PC that's 'E:\games\Gary Grigsby's War in the East 2'.




Rick402 -> RE: MOD: COREd War in the Eeast 2 official release (5/22/2021 10:48:59 PM)

i did what you said and it didnt install, think im going to try the other way. and to do that do i just copy and paste the Dat folder over the vanilla folder?
