Chuck, I would like access to those counters you modded. Thanks for your work.
Hi Jack - here is the file Modded WitE Counters ChuckB - hope the download works.
In the zip file, you'll find five graphics files (ending in .tga) - these need to be copied into the following location of your installation of WitE: \Gary Grigby's War in the East\Art (if you want to revert to the original files, you need to copy the five files with the same name from the Art folder before overwriting it.
The sixth file in the zip file is "WiteFontConfig.txt". Jison's counters use a different (smaller) font and that information is contained in this file. This file actually needs to be copied into the \Gary Grigby's War in the East\ root folder. If you have a fresh install of Jison's mod, this should not be necessary but I learned that patches for WitE often override the file, reverting it back to its original content. Again, create a backup of this file first if you want to revert back to the original version.
My little mod is really only a minor variation of Jison's fantastic work.
I hope this works for you - let me know how if it doesn't (and also if it does)
HI Chuck, I'm trying to install your mod over Jison's because like you I like the colored trinagle for the soft factors and the black one for moved units. Not to mention the gorgeous images instead of NATO's symbols.
But unfortunately it doesn't seem to be working ... I did put the 5 TGA files in the "units" directory under Dat\Art\ and the text file in the game's root. It seems to have revert to original counters instead of yours (I have NATO symbols back) ... Are you sure the file you posted contains the right counters ??
I just checked and the link I posted leads to the right files but maybe you're looking for something else - I modded the Jison counters that do show NATO symbols, not any images. I only modded the corners, nothing else. If you look above in my posting from 11/6/2017, I like to an image that shows my little mod.
Oops ! Sorry Chuck, yes I was mixing with Budd's post where we see the "picture counters" instead of the NATO symbols ...
Thought it was your post. Sorry man ...
Anyway, I'm now using your counters :-) I like the colored triangles back :-)
Glad you like them, they were more work than they look like (mainly due to me doing this for the first time) Enjoy!
