Strike Fighter Project 2 – Screen Overhaul v1.2 Customizable Edition

 

The new version of SF2 Screen Overhaul 1.2 is now released.  Here is the following screen this mod completely overhaul:
 

-          Main screen

-          Single mission screen

-          Mission editor screen

-          Hangar (Default) screen

-          Loadout screen

-          Planning screen

-          Roster screen

-          Campaign screen

-          Campaign editor screen

-          Pilot records screen

-          Options screen

 

It does not yet cover another screen.  It is work in progress (WIP) for now.  What I am seeking for is feedback that will help me improving the mod further. It is one of my biggest projects I ever worked on for SF2. It gave me opportunity to grow a new skill I enjoy doing. 

NOTE:  Now that SF2 Screen Overhaul is becoming a customizable version. If you make any mods that adds or change anything to this mod, please add my name and mod name to your credit part.

 

You can contact me by PM in CombatAce (I am known as Eagle114th there) or Strike fighter series Discord chat (My username is Magic Dragon, so you can find me there too.)

Version 1.2 NOTES:

 

Buttons customization instruction:
In Menu folder (SF2 mod folder), you will see various SF2 screen named as “BUTTONS_HANGAR, MAIN, OPTIONS, etc...), there are folders for each button.  In order, to change the color of buttons, go to one of button folder, you will see different folders for various color.  Copy the file from there and overwrite the files in any BUTTONS_(SCREEN) folder.

For example, in BUTTONS_HANGAR, if I want to change the color of “LOADOUT” square button to blue; I go to the folder “LOADOUT”, then “Blue” folder, copy the files: LOADOUT0.bmp, LOADOUT1.bmp, and LOADOUT2.bmp.  Then I paste (Overwrite) the files in BUTTONS_HANGAR.

 

Screens and Buttons customization Templates

In different “BUTTONS_(different screen names)”, there are folder “_Templates’.  You can use it to change the designs, colors, or anything you want to do with the screen background or buttons. 

 

 



This mod uses a font known as Orbitron.  I included it in _Fonts folder.

I want to express my sincerely big THANKS to Menrva, Wrench, UllyB, Daddyairplanes, Wilches, JosefK, FalonCAF, and everyone else in CombatAce community for making this possible.  You all have been a huge help. 

Because of Operation Desert Storm 30 years anniversary great mod, I was able to study the codes on how SF2 menu work, which led me into developing new menu for SF2.  This mod is truly fun to fly in SF2.  If anyone hasn’t tried it yet, I highly recommend it.



There are detailed instruction that explains how to install in the proper ways in README file.  LEASE READ IT BEFORE INSTALLING! 

I included the plans for the next version in the readme too.  

The feedback are always welcomed!

Man I lost months and years in USNF and ATF. Wrench was doing mods for it 20 years ago and that is how we met.

Sir, I am honored to get the messages from you! I , too, spent countless hours in Jane's ATF Gold, and then Jane's FA. I was and still am big fan of Wrench, Centurian, and other modders (Even though the mods back there for Jane's FA was known as Libs).  

If you and anyone are interested, we still have sites and discord with the group that are still modding Jane's FA to this day.

Here is an invitation code for Jane's series sim discord:

Don't forget about USAF! LOL. I was doing mods for that until I couldn't run it anymore...was that in XP or 7? But, I did manage to make a menu screen for SF2 with the bits of images I still had in my archives...

Good times...

I agree with you!  Not only Jane's USAF, as well as Jane's IAF, WWII Fighters, Longbow series, etc... 

By the way, you can run Jane's USAF on Win 10 fully now. In Discord, there are 'fixes that allow you to fly both Jane's IAF and USAF.  

You can always re-fly Jane's series for the sake of nostalgic times, as I do from time to time.
