From: McMinnville, OR
Not really a bug, eh? I'd guess 'a feature', LOL!
What we had was a lot of stuff in the altGraphics that didn't match with the Graphics file. I had a suspicion, but it wasn't proved out until Telumar/Stefan and Silvan brought up the fact that you'ld used 'scalability' for the .173 patch.
Just to make sure, I did another download of the game, patched it to the 3.2 level and patched that to .173. After that it was just bringing in the tiles I liked and there you have it! Actually the it was neccesary to patch to 18.104.22.168 in order to have the opart 3.ini available, this was done after the game was downloaded and patched to .173, but whatever, eh?
I DID notice that things in the Opart 3.ini were not quite the same, so some copying was in order.
I'm wierd, and don't like the .png so I'm running purely .bmp at the moment. There might be some gathered later, but thats later, eh? Everything LOOKS OK, but I need to do some runs first to make sure, eh?
Anyway, this probably won't happen to that many of the new comers, but might to some of the ancient grognards that haven't crashed their 'puters since the '90's, LOL!
You might want to note that Telemar has the pertinant thread on Matrix at http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=2549130 .....Didn't really make any sparks for me until he brought it up on the GS/toaw forum.
If you want, I can take this all to email (got your addy), but it's not a biggy, eh? Remember that I post more on the GS fora than here (hint hint).
