How to change 4.13 MA6 Splashscreens and Backgrounds
« on: June 06, 2015, 09:11:01 AM »

How to change 4.13 ModAct 6
Splashscreens and Backgrounds:


new in 4.13 ModAct 6:

- new folder structure
- uses jpg instead tga pics
- new: splashscreen.ini

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Change the 4.13 MA6 Backgrounds:

make this folders in your 4.13 MA6 #SAS directory:

4.13_Backgrounds (can be any name)
--> gui (do not change this)
----> menu (do not change this name)

so it looks like: ..\#SAS\4.13_Backgrounds\gui\menu

your background pics resides in the ...\gui\menu folder
and have this names:

background_de.jpg
background_ja.jpg
background_ru.jpg
background_en.jpg
wide_background_de.jpg
wide_background_ja.jpg
wide_background_ru.jpg
wide_background_en.jpg


where the background_xx.jpg pics have to be 4:3
and the wide_background_xx.jpg pics have to be 16:9.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Change the 4.13 MA6 Splashscreens:

make this folders in your 4.13 MA6 #SAS directory:

4.13_Splashscreens (can be any name)
--> gui (do not change this)
----> splashscreen (do not change this)
--------->4by3 (do not change this)
--------->16by9 (do not change this)

so it looks like:
..\#SAS\4.13_Splashscreens\gui\splashscreen\4by3
and
..\#SAS\4.13_Splashscreens\gui\splashscreen\16by9

4:3 jpg pics goes into the 4by3, 16:9 pics into the 16by9 folder.

The splashscreens.ini file:

Resides in in ..\gui\splashscreen directory.
Here you add the names of the pics you want to use:
4:3 pics goes in the [normal] section, 16:9 in [wide].
See this example:

Code: [Select]
[normal]
4by3/avro_lancasters.jpg
4by3/behind_enemy_lines.jpg
4by3/bf_110.jpg
4by3/bird_of_prey.jpg
4by3/chasing_the_buzzbomb_spit.jpg
....
....
[wide]
16by9/avro_lancasters.jpg
16by9/behind_enemy_lines.jpg
16by9/bf_110.jpg
16by9/bird_of_prey.jpg
16by9/chasing_the_buzzbomb_spit.jpg
16by9/chasing_the_buzzbomb_tempest.jpg
16by9/chasing_the_sunrise.jpg
...
...


btw: of course you can have backgrounds and splashscreens
in one folder, I have it seperated to make it easier to understand.  ;)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Download and see how it looks like:

http://www.mediafire.com/download/e2dgfvfkautudjs/MA6_backgrounds_splashscreens.7z

Install: unzip the 7z file and copy the folders
4.13_Backgrounds and 4.13_Splashscreens
into your \#SAS directory.

As you can see I have no 16:9 pics (not yet),
so the folder ..\gui\splashscreen\16by9 is empty,
there are no entries below [wide] in splashscreen.ini
and I do not have any wide_backgound pics in ...\gui\menu.
In my install splashscreen.ini looks like this now:

Code: [Select]
[normal]
4by3/background0.jpg
4by3/background1.jpg
4by3/background2.jpg
4by3/background3.jpg
4by3/background4.jpg
4by3/background5.jpg
4by3/background6.jpg
4by3/background7.jpg
4by3/background8.jpg
4by3/background9.jpg
4by3/background10.jpg
4by3/background11.jpg
4by3/background12.jpg
4by3/background13.jpg
4by3/background14.jpg
4by3/background15.jpg
4by3/background16.jpg
[wide]


I have named my pics in ...\gui\splashscreen\4by3
background1 ... background16,
but you are free to give them any name.
Just be sure to have the proper name
in the splashscreen.ini then.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Thats it, have fun.  ;)

Nice one.  I like the current splashscreens a lot, however I would very much like to change to one that is a blueprint of an engine.  Do you know the name and location of that specific file?

Have you installed the Screenies I have uploaded in first post?
They are limited to my (old) screen (4:3 ratio) and its meant as a example only.
Maybe you have another ratio (16:9) and so it will not work ...  :-X

"Gerax" probably it is due by the graphic card.

No problem.

Cheers
