Title: In Pacific Skies - Woodlark and Trobiand Islands
Post by: agracier on April 06, 2013, 06:27:54 AM
Here's a new Pacific map of an actual area. The map is for Woodlark Islands and the Trobiand Islands along with an assorted number of small insignificant specks of land in the vast Pacific. The islands are located to the east of Port Moresby, to the south of Rabaul and to the west of Guadalcanal, all more or less equidistant. They were taken by Allied force in operation Chronicle, in June 1943 to little or no opposition. Airfields were built. These are included in the map, along with one fictitious field midway between the two.

Textures are predominantly in 2048, so you're going to need carsmasters 2048 texture mod. If that does not work for you, then downscale all textures with 'Spain_2048_xxxx' in the file name, along with the tree textures, that are in a separate folder. Downscale 50% and they should work in a regular install.

BumpH files are also included, also in a separate folder. If you wish to use them, just copy them to the texture directory. A word though - when I had them in my map install, loading of the map went very slowly for some reason. The map worked with the BumpH files, but the long loading time got on my nerves that I decided to just forget about using them for the time being. Maybe it has to do with my install, maybe it's something else. They do give nice visual effects though, so anyone who wishes can always try them out.

Nice map ! I like these islands... makes me want to go there some days !

But I have a little problem : I resized all the 2048 to 1024, and everything works fine except the fact that I have the "square trees" bug back... anyone else has same issue ?

I am running my game on DBW 1.71.

Did you resize the tree textures that were in the accompanying trees folder before copying them to your install? If not, you should try this.

Or else, since the random trees do not visually affect the map that much except when you fly very close to the ground, or when they have widely differing color schemes from the regular textures, you could also try editing a line from the load.ini.

take this line from the load.ini
Tree0 = Trees/GP_AlteredBush8a.tga  //AlteredBush8a.tga

and replace or disable (place // in front) with another tree type, such as these

Tree0 = Trees\AlteredBush9a.tga
or
Tree0 = Trees\MTO_AlteredBush8a.tga

Yes, I resized all the 2048 X 2048 tga files to 1024 X 1024 with IRfanView.

But, I will try your other solution. By the way... what is the default texture for this (without mod, I mean) ?

Not sure if it's my install or I'm just missing textures that I have not downloaded yet.  Running DBW 1.7.1, with a tailored Full Monty, no SCW stuff........... got 24 bit skins and 2048 Texture mod running.

BumpH files are also included, also in a separate folder. If you wish to use them, just copy them to the texture directory.

Note, when referring to enabling the BumpH files, which directory is the "texture directory?"  Is it the one titled "Woodlark"... simply copy the files into that directory?

I understand. Here's a mediafire link, but remember that as I don't have a pro account at mediafire, there will probably be a limited number of allowed downloads per week. I think it stands at 10 per week? So, use the mediafire link only if the sendspace one fails you.

And anyone who wishes, may certainly make and post their own link from another sharing site.

Im installing the map now & when I try to add the files to my "trees" folder I get this message :

???

Before you do copy, make sure that you have a working version of the 2048 mod. If you DO NOT have a working version of 2048 mod in your install, then don't copy the new 2048 trees. There will be no need for them.
Title: Re: In Pacific Skies - Woodlark and Trobiand Islands
Post by: agracier on April 06, 2013, 03:28:47 PM
thanks - if your map loads from the FMB , then my carsmaster light mod is working, then drop in 2048 trees and overwrite ?

and the bumpH files go exactly where?

If the map loads, and you haven't resized any of the textures, then yes, apparently it looks like carsmasters 2048 mod is working. For the while being, I'd maybe hold off on the trees, until you've tried the map out a few times.

But when you feel confident about it, back up the old tree files and then place the 2048 ersion here:
mapmods/maps/_Tex/trees/

BumpH files are meant to 'accompany' the regular texture files. They are supposed to be paired with textures and have the same filename, bar the suffix. So they go in the texture folder. Which in this case is:

... mapmods/maps/_Tex/ag/Woodlark/

Thanks for the effort. I now see what went wrong. The map_c files were not in accord with each other in the map maker version and the normal game ... so while the map maker land areas were as they should be (except for the stuff in the water at Kalawatta), in the normal game they were off ...

Anyway, here is a new and corrected actors file. Just unzip and copy over the existing one. First post amended.

Good idea. But perhaps you should incorporate the new actors, also posted on the first post.

I'll get a new link up myself, incorporating the new actors ...

I have this mod for clouds:

In the load.ini line, for 'HighClouds= xxxx.tga'
I have several clouds texture files. They look like negative images of clouds when view.

Clouds_UUFF256.tga
Clouds256.tga
Clouds259.tga
Clouds267.tga
Clouds267_2.tga
Clouds269.tga
Clouds269_2.tga
Clouds269_3.tga

I picked these up from other maps and made some of my own.

hi guys
if it might help anyone, i've also resized the bumpH files to 1024 and uploaded it to my mediafire account, which so far hasn't seen any restrictions on downloads (let's hope it stays that way!)
here's the link: http://www.mediafire.com/?xddb911kzzb57m0
bear in mind, i haven't renamed them, so they still mostly have the 2048 naming structure, but they are all now 1024 size.
hope it might help someone with the loading times, and so forth.
i am personally unable to fully utilise the 2048 map textures, as i probably need to upgrade some components on my machine first. maybe someone else is in a similar boat, and hopefully for them, this'll also help a bit. :D

thanks, Gerhard - i really have a hard time running my game with high-res map textures - the same scene that runs in regular size at a steady 50+ fps, will run in single digit fps with high-res textures, and the slightly better-looking textures are definitely not worth the drastic drop in performance.
with a new GPU, and possibly upping my RAM from 4GB to 8GB, i'm sure things will go better, but for now, regular size is the only way to go for me, realistically.

The 2048 textures are large and so are the attending BumpH files for these ... my machine is quite old already, some 4 years at least and so it's certainly not the latest. Yet it runs this map quite well. I can have 20-25 planes in one mission and concentrated in one area so they are all in play, and there is no problem with that.

Yet even so, it may be necessary to hold off on using the BumpH files. they are in a separate directory and will not be loaded unless you move them into the textures folder. Maybe it's best to try without them first ...

Here's my problem:

The map loads fine in FMB. But, when I zoom in to the level at which the textures appear, I get a CTD. I'm running DBW 1.71, with all the required mods. I've tried it with and without BumpH files of both sizes, but no joy. This is a completely new on on me!  ???
Title: Re: In Pacific Skies - Woodlark and Trobiand Islands
Post by: SAS~Tom2 on April 07, 2013, 06:21:22 PM
B.M.:
I recall this from another map, I assume it simply means that map overloads your current setup and or game settings. Try the same with running at another RAM setting for the selector or simply by using texture compression in the il2setup.exe. (Both, the compression in the first top box and the compression ARB extension down right).

I have a nowadays lower end rig /XP/AMD 2.8/HD 5770/ 3 GB RAM..and so far have not many issues with high res textures.

But I assume the trees really make framerates drop, so I reverted to smaller tgas and whenever I want a map with hi res trees, I simply put the trees inside the main tex folder and rename the load.ini tree section accordingly.

Did that here and it works. :)

Carry on

I'm not versed in the ins and outs of QMB missions - they have always mystified me.

But don't you need to use the name of the map folder? And then the load.ini? In this case it is:
ag_Woodlark_Island

So it would be

MAP ag_Woodlark_Island/load.ini

or so I presume or rather deduce from looking at other examples ... let us know if it's correct ...

Would it perhaps have something to do with the dimensions of this map? It's quite elongated and a bit out of the ordinary range.

Or perhaps, you could rename this map into the name of a map whose QMB missions do work? And then just see what happens? Or just rename it into anything else that strikes your fancy or seems simple and straightforward enough to try in a QMB ...

I'd be happy to. But when it comes to airfields I'm a bit of a novice. Here's a map maker view and it looks like things are nicely centered ... maybe you could give some advice where to place which points?

As for Quick missions..
Will also give it a try if I can..
I encountered probs with the opposite-smaller island maps, e.g. I tried to use the templates for Uufflakke's missions to work with a small island map (BTM Pacific Islands) and while the mission loads, it is not possible to open it in FMB and edit since the waypoints are off the map..somewhere in the water.
For that mission set, I think using the default Pacific islands missions and renaming them and their load.ini part will work.

Gave this map a tribute, first shots with gapa setting, final shots without.
Very nice, even without bumps! :)

Many shots, sorry..I'm an all or nothing dude. Lol, a Mig shot in between, added them for fun as "future observers"..later they crossed the Nakajima's and after a 20 minute long ridiculous turning fight (Nakajimas always on them "Arab paintjob Fishbeds" back, Fishbeds without weapons) the Migs eventually dropped out of fuel and the Ki-84Cs crushed them.. :D.

I've found a few coast align bugs as well ... I ran the coast align tool several times, at different stages of the map making and corrected lots of spots by hand as well ... but with all the coastlines ... I also wonder if the coast align tool might not be updated or adjusted to more sensitive settings? I'm getting the same results on a new map right now - lots of unaligned coast area ...

Anyway, I will post a fix in a while after some more bugs are undoubtedly found ....

I have the same tendency with mods sometimes ... especially those somewhat less straightforward ...

But in this case it's not that much of a problem. The dll's are the core of the mod, get those right, then all you need is the files in the folders:

24Bit Skins
&
Carsmaster Light in the IL2

I sometimes keep the 24bit Skins disabled
-24bit Skins
and then switch it on or off depending on what I wish to do. Test maps or (rarely) fly a mission ...

Beautiful map.  I DL the updated actors file but the airfield takeoff points mentioned above are still like in the pic.  I'll have a look-see to see if it can be fixed.  It may be just the slight angle of the runway which won't allow to be perfect...I've had that problem before.

Also...on the edges of the map, it would look nicer if the endless small islands/reefs do not show to eternity.  Cleaning up the edges of Map_c should fix that. 

The Trobiand airfield texture has an extra part of runway showing on the east end of the main runway.  It would look much nicer if that was cleaned up.

Anyhow, I'm excited about this map!

Good calls on the airfield and map edges ... thanks.

Here's a link for updated files necessary to correct these issues. It also contains some corrections for coast alignments. Just copy the files from this link into your map folder - ag_Woodlark - and overwrite the existing files (preferably after making backups of the originals, just in case).

First post has been edited and this same link added.

Thanks again for the corrections.

I checked the runways.  The only way to fix this problem is to open the airfield texture in a graphics program and rotate it maybe 10-15 degrees so that its runway will line up with the takeoff waypoints and "runway ground" red arrow". 

The "Runway Ground" red arrow is the key to this problem!  Planes will line up on its axis...it does not matter where your runway takeoff waypoints are...as you can see in the pics above.  The red arrow must line up exactly on the takeoff waypoint line if you want the planes to line up exactly on the takeoff waypoints.
Sometimes and easy fix is to rotate the red arrow with the numpad 9 or 7 keys.  The Red arrow axes has limitations and rotate only particular degrees.  You just have to try and line it up onto the texture's runway as best you can.  agracier, rotating the texture should be easy enough for you.

Both airfields (Woodlark and Trobiand) have this same problem.

also...
Woodlark's "STAY" points may be too close to objects (camo nets/buildings).  If they are too close then the plane will pass that point and go to the next one.  If other working stays are already taken by planes then the taxiing plane will just disappear.  So make sure the STAYS are in good location and that there are several of them available.  You'll just have to test them with the landings of several airplanes in one mission.

Trobiand's does not even have STAY points.  Just need to attach some STAYS to the TAXI points and make them park in spaces far enough away from objects as described above.
And, if TAXI points are too close to objects they may not work.   Be sure objects are far enough away from the taxi path.

One other thing I noticed is that there are trees in the water on the east side of Bomapau isle.  I don't have the latest update so maybe it's corrected already.???

I tried that last night and this morning and also moved stay points around, aligned up the red arrows and all ... but planes still take off on the same place, just off to the side of the actual runway.

Obviously there s something I am not getting. Is there an off-set value or something to this various points? Cause no matter where I place what planes still take-off from the same place and moreover, there are no points on that place when I work in map maker. No taxi, stay or runway ... the planes just seemingly decide on their own to start their take-off positions there.

Post by: CzechTexan on April 19, 2013, 11:20:35 AM
The planes are going to line up behind the red arrow.  As it is now, the red arrow makes a line off to the side of the runway.

There is no way to fix it just by adjusting waypoints and the red arrow.

The only way to fix it is to adjust your texture.   Slightly rotate it in your graphics program.

I already did the rotation ... and I haven't posted the new texture and new airfields yet, I've tried out several set-ups of different positioning of red arrows, stay and runway points ... and even f I make rather radical changes to the positioning, delete some points so that the airfield becomes quite basic, or add points to make it more intricate, the planes always seem to take off in the sae spot - just to the side of the runway ...

I'll try some more later ... today it has been discouraging not finding the key to this.

OK ... finally. Some screenshots of the corrected airfields. I'll upload corrections in a while or tomorrow after doing some more checks.

Thanks to Czech-Texan for the tips and explanation. It was indeed due to not having the correct angle on the runway texture. Never would have found it on my own ... thanks again.

The airfields still have problems with the stay points for where to park and also objects are too close to the taxi routes.

agracier, I hope you don't mind, but I took the liberty of changing the actors file to fix them.  Last night I did a few hours worth of correcting and testing the airfields so that not just fighters but bombers will be able to use these nice looking fields.

Trobiand af now has both runways working with good taxi routes and stays.  This is where I had to move most of the objects that were too close to the routes...but just a short distance.
However, with its setup of two runways, it's best for each runway to only have one end to takeoff and land.

It was also necessary to delete the "woods"/forest in the path of each runway.  Heavy planes were crashing into the trees.  So, map_T was slightly changed...just replaced the woods texture with Lowland0.

Today I'm still testing and correcting.  Still having some problems with Japanese bombers landing and taxi routes.  US bombers have longer landing distances so they work OK.

The Seaplane taxi and stay points were also a problem.  I moved them farther away from the shoreline so that they will park.

agracier, I can zip the actors and Map_T and email it to you if you'd like to have the fixes.  Just say the word.  :-X

The corrected airfields waypoints have been emailed to agracier so we should see the update soon.

Trobiand Island
North runway...Can now park 9 medium bombers, or 5 Large bombers (B-17), or 20 fighters.
South Runway...Can now park 24 fighters.  It should be used for only fighters.

Woodlark Island
airfield can now park 6 medium bombers, or 6 Large bombers, or 18 fighters.

*If you use more than those amounts or have stationary planes or objects in their path or parking places then the A/I planes will disappear after landing!
If you have stationary planes under camo netting or in hangars then you should be OK.  Be sure to leave all taxi routes clear.

Well, you've got a better monitor or better settings, looks much nicer ... here's what I got with similar settings and more or less the same location. The view is very much more hazy and less crisp. I also have tons more clouds apparently. Maybe it has something to do with a cloud mod?

uh, one or two airfields use the same texture (Spain_1024_Emirivau_001.tga - one horizontal, the other vertical) ... but others are different, fairly simple single runway affairs ...

There are 2 Lost Islands maps - one tropical, the other much larger and more Nordic (the Nordic map has simple airfields - or so I hope ... ha ha)

http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,32409.0.html
http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,33644.0.html

But I bet they could both use help with the airfields ...

and thanks about this map, Woodlark turned out well I think because it was the second map I did the map texture placing all by hand ... no selecting rgb values by automation, no fancy noise generation or anything, just a one pixel sized paintbrush and then painting over map_h ... which creates mistakes of a sort when you try to cover terrain heights, but those mistakes make the landscape look more believable somehow ... or so I think ...

Raptor, Find the UP Objects by Boomer, you will have 4 .SFS Files like this

up_objects01.sfs  through  up_objects04.sfs  Put these in your Game Root Folder.  Then Paste these Lines in your .rc File:

@sfs MOUNT up_objects01.sfs
@sfs MOUNT up_objects02.sfs
@sfs MOUNT up_objects03.sfs
@sfs MOUNT up_objects04.sfs

Then you cam more or less install any Modded Map you want, and they will work.

Campaign for this map will be released in about a week.  It's not historical but fiction and based on the British Pacific Fleet actions during the battle for Okinawa.  Of course, this map has nothing to do with that battle, being far away and also historical action there was two years before.  I've just always wanted to do something about the BPF with Corsairs and well, this map is such a beauty that I just wanted to do something on it even if it's not historical.

Corsairs are awesome planes ... they've always felt spot on in the game and some versions really pack a wallop. I must say I've never heard about British fleet actions at Okinawa, they do tend to get played down if not ignored in the Pacific when it comes to documentaries on TV ... a shame ...

Anyway, great and looking forward to having a campaign ...

It might be possible that you need the oil-well object. I'm not certain if it is standard in Boomer's pack or not. It sometimes creeps up in copied military camps or installations from other maps or teplates. Give it a try as it can't hurt your install if it's installed.

Here's a link:

     The "Boomer's object pack" is awesome but it is not enough to play all of the newest maps.
Since there hasn't been a new modpack for awhile, one really needs to dig deep to find all of
the objects and build a good static.ini. Mine is at 973 kb right now, duplicates checked for and eliminated, and
I still find that I am loading new objects, Battle over Moscow is a good example. Personally, I feel the
new objects add alot to the game. Maybe we could have a thread where new objects are posted so folks
could go to one place to update their 3do's. If I knew how to post such a huge file, I would post mine.

Well, another Il-2 mystery I guess - I made both maps in the same map maker version, both one after the other or maybe with one other map in between ... in any case, with no special additions of objects between the two that I can think of ... and ever since past autumn I've had a complete re-install of the game and map-maker and have taken care to keep things nicely in order -prefixing all objects with 'OBJECTS_xxx' and all mod aircraft with 'AIRCRAFT_xxx'

So I'm quite certain I did not miss any objects from my install.

Let me think on this some more ... so many other members can use Woodlark ... so it can't be anything all that esoteric and special ...

Hi Raptor, could you possibly be missing these objects, because I just put this map into a new HSFX Install and while loading I got a loading error so I did a Missing Object's Search with Universal Static Ini Checker, and this is what it says:

buildings.House$storage_003
buildings.House$Rus_House_006
buildings.House$FurnitureTreeolive
buildings.House$Rus_House_007
buildings.House$Rus_Barn_001

buildings.House$Rus_House_002

From what I can see in my static.ini, the above objects are all part of the standard objects in DBW ... so in theory they should be in Boomer's Object pack ... or so I would surmise ... they are not any recent new objects from the past year ...

The treeolive is quite an old object even, it was part of a set of several tree objects made years ago ... I think that Kapteeni and I even used it on the old Andalucia map ...

I extracted the actors.static for this map to see if the objects missing above could be hand edited out ... but verily, there are just too many of them on the map to do by hand ... unless you wish to do a session of an an hour or 3 of hand editing.

I can send the extracted buildings file as a text file if you wish, but it's really abit of a job to do by hand. Installing the missing objects would be far easier ... once you find them that is ...

Your Log might not indicate an error so it is best you download and do a missing object search your self with the Universal Static .ini checker, Raptor.
Title: Re: In Pacific Skies - Woodlark and Trobiand Islands
Post by: agracier on May 07, 2013, 09:10:40 AM
Here's the buildings file extracted from the actors.static for Woodlark. You can unzip and then manually edit the lines ... when you find an object that is missing from your install, then the entire line on which it appears in the outbuildings.txt file needs to be removed ...

Then save and I'll see above recombining into a working actors.static.

But I would follow the advice of first checking exactly which objects you are missing by using the Universal Static checker ...

ok m8's I've found this with universal static .ini checker:

Oh boy - just checked the outbuildings.txt file - the actors.static is swarming with that particular palm-tree ... there must be hundreds if not thousands on the map ... there are 205 000 and odd objects on the map ... and a lot of those 'House$FurniturePalmAg3'

So, a hand editing doesn't seem the way to go ... not unless you've nothing else to do for an afternoon or two ...

The object must be somewhere ...

Or, you could try a bulk 'find/replace with another palmtree ... but that might be a tricky thing to do ...

8 missions for Corsair II and 8 for Corsair IV.  Missions are Fiction and time til action is 10-15 minutes.  Corsairs takeoff from British carriers with 60% fuel load.  Late Japanese planes are pretty good but pilot experience is low late in the war so many of them are "rookies."

If the map won't load, then try hitting shift+tab at the same time and then find the ERROR MESSAGE on one the lines that appears in the error console ... if it doesn't help you find the problem, then post the message here ...

If the mission won't start, then you might be missing an object in your static.ini ... in that case, I'd read the posts above as there were some members who had the not saving mission problem ...

Some texture missing or in wrong format:

or Jamaica_2048 normal or Bump....

Did you have high res mods installed?

I have newTFM, think it's included ? So many folders i don't know where to look.

I think i may have something strange in my map install though, is the folder "-BumpH" in ag_Woodlark_Island\#DBW\mapmods\maps\_tex\ag\Woodlark intended to have this name ? I though a "-" meant deactivated ?

Even if a minus in front of a name disable it in IL2 , in this situation not it is a optional BumpH files folder!

You should check if you have the file maps/_tex/ag/woodlark/spain_2048_jamaica_002.BumpH in the specified path...._tex/ag/woodlark because the game are looking for it;

Since the map IIRC have the option of 2048 or 1024 textures you should check which format have you installed because the BumpH the game are loading is in wrong format....

I understood it as optional initially, but my crash confused me afterwards  :o

I finally nailed it to these optional 1024 bumpH files, original provided by AG work fine, not the 1024 by malone (in my install, hopefully it works for others :) ).

Thanks for help !  :)

Also you could simply deactivate the bump in question by renaming
"spain_2048_jamaica_002.BumpH" to -spain_2048_jamaica_002.BumpH.
According to your log it was active.
 :)

Chrs..

TBH the important part might be downloading and installing the softer version of carsmaster's light mod along with the Hi Rez mod:

Tom2 is right about Carsmasters Light Mod, it allows to edit your conf.ini:

[Render_OpenGL]
TexQual=3
TexMipFilter=3
TexCompress=0

I never have any problems graphically with any Maps

that Corsair mini campaign does not work on my rig;
the map loads fine and the QMB missions can be flown without problems;
the first campaign mission though shows one damaged Ki-84 on the runway and another one falling out of the sky immediately;
the worst problem though is the fact that my own aircraft lies submerged in the water, with no carrier to be seen far and wide to take off from.
has anyone any idea why that is?
bump files????? +scratcheshead+

any help is appreciated
cheers
phil

UPDATE: I tried a few missions running them through FMB first; they load without a problem and show their respective waypoints and everything else needed from a mission file, but when playing them, I usually end up either in the water or with that spherical "between earth and sky in colours seldom seen before" look; as the campaign uses stock Corsairs, and the stock Illustrious CV model methinks, so that should not be a problem either;
as I am using a up to date TFM install, even the new Colossus class is present in my install and as said, in QMB, the map works fine as well;
there seems to be something seriously wrong with my RN carriers somehow, as another RN carrier campaign shows the same problems (The Emperors Hellcats);
could it be that his has something to do with the Engine Mod? 2.5 is included in the new TFM with the hint of not using 2.6;

as said, any help is appreciated

problem solved: the Corsair MK II did not load correctly in my install due to a problem with the new Corsair Canopies mod;
put a ! in front to make it load near the beginning of the mod loading sequence and the Corsair Mk2 works for me as well as all the campaigns involving them :)

Here a few Red Quicks I made. But read on, there's some catch hidden, like with all my missions lol.

The Red.None is a simple mission starting southwest of Woodlark.
Red Scramble takes off close there at the airfield.

RedAirbase has a few of tomoose's airfiled objects IIRC,  :-\ , TBH forgot lol..
http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,37743.0.html


and a few of Max' object repaints here.
http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,41421.0.html

Might add some Jerry cans later on a  Blue Scramble and re upload a 2nd version.
Or: You can manually open one of the Quicks and fumble the Blue plane's waypoints to the Japanese supposed airbase as takeoff and safe the mission as
ag_Woodlark_IslandBlueScramble00.mis

Known issues:
Sometimes you get a "data file corrupt" message for some stupid reason. :D :D If you fly another Quick on another map and reload or exit the game it usually works. Seemed to be related to me deleting the properties file. :-\

Not actually a mission kind of man. ;D :-[ So, like my MiSp Pacific piece of art lools, this is for fun.

 
The map is outstanding!

I just tried to get this map for the first time and get the message:

"Sorry, the file you requested is not available."

Can we get a reupload please?

Sorry to resurrect this old thread, but I was wondering if anyone had the original 2048x2048 BumpH files for this map. The original link to the map is dead and Bwf's reupload only contains the BumpH files that were reduced to 1024x1024 by Malone.

Problem is, my installation chokes on these textures when loading the map. I get the same error as rollnloop got in reply #149  of this thread. He seems to have solved the problem by using the originals provided by agracier...which don't seem to be available now. Can anyone provide me with them?
