There seems to be a problem with the Optional Hotkeys Upgrade Packs.
I tested all three Non-hex versions (Hexless, Pure, RnR) and found the tile WPEN04.BMP is shown distorted.
Only WPEN04.BMP shows distorted, all other tiles show up fine.
The distortion is seen with Full Screen as well as Windowed.
Switch line (Full Screen): "J:\Matrix Games\War in the Pacific Admiral's Edition\Beta2\War in the Pacific Admiral Edition.exe" -altFont -cpu2 -f -dd_def
The distortion also shows with no switches.
Note: the distortion does not show with the map loaded by the tool CombatReport.
Graphics utilities, like Xnview, show the file OK, and I can't see any problems with the file.
EDIT2: Note: the tools imagetool.exe and DXTBmp.exe show the image upside down (which indicates a format glitch).
To fix the problem I used PaintShop Pro and saved without any changes which apparently reset the format (BMP).
I had exactly the same problem. To fix, I loaded in Photoshop, SAVEd AS, kept the same name, unchecked the "flip row order" box, and saved. Thanks Ranier for the tip, it was driving me crazy :)
Hi Chemkid, I've just downloaded your wonderful maps and they work fine but the problem still exists in the Optional Hotkeys Upgrade Packs (Hex & Hexless at least).
Unfortunately unlike the commercial Paintshop Pro, the freeware 'Gimp' graphics editor does not seem to be able to clear this problem. We really should not have to download and install another application (DXTBmp.exe) we will never use again just to apply a single panel.
Would it be possible to post fixed graphics files please. (The technologically challenged players out there will love you)
Edit: Loading them into MS Paint and saving seems to fix things also.
I just had exactly the same problem (under Win8.1) with scenario briefing images and aircraft top & side images created by Gimp not showing up in in-game. Also fixed by MS Paint. Hmmmm.....
