Looking at my install I don't see a Graphics over-ride folder.

How do I add some custom graphics to my scenario's? I don't want to over-ride all, just a few extra for flavor in certain scenario's.

Help would be appreciated! (yes I did review the manual and I did not see anything there) I reviewed the forums and did not see any thing there. I note there are 2 executable files in my install labeled graphics and TAOW III graphics, I think they will over-ride all new graphics which I don't want to do.

If you want to know what I'm doing exactly, I'm creating a Guadalcanal Campaign at 1 Kilometer per hex. Since there are no rail lines on the map, I want to edit the railroad slightly to use straight rail as Henderson field and I want to use palm tree graphics as light woods. (I have not found the old mod file for palm tree graphics but I imagine it's out there some where)

Go to your Documents folder, either by shortcut or

C:\Users\<user>\Documents\My Games\The Operational Art of War IV\Graphics Override

Take a peek. Graphics updates override on a per scenario basis. If you put a graphics update outside of a scenario folder, it will impact globally.

Got it to work. Thank you for that info!
Might of taken me awhile to figure it out. I always use explorer to navigate through the files, I would have never seen the installed Graphics Override folder in my games area!

Did you take the files out of the folder and put them into 'Documents/My Games/The Operational Art of War IV/'Graphics Override' separately ?

Or if you want them to be for only one scenario, you to put the individual files into its' folder [or make a folder if one for it does not exist].

i want to override the graphics globally.
I have moved the folders Telu3.4ModII(H_tiles) and Telu3.4ModII(normalandsmalltiles) into Documents/My Games/The Operational Art of War IV/'Graphics Override

The Override folder is looking for things that match what the game is looking for elsewhere, so if you put a 'TeluMod' Folder in there, it ain't going to see it. Grab the files out of the Telu folder and put them in the Override folder.
