WOI - Mainscreen


Alternative mainscreen for Wings over Israel

(includes template)

 

TO INSTALL MAINSCREEN

(1) extract all files

(2) copy the files in the \MENU folder to the \MENU folder in your Wings over Israel folder

 

TEMPLATE

The \TEMPLATE folder contains the file named mainscreen_template.png, which you can use to make your own mainscreens compatible with the .INI file in this package. This allows you to change the main image easily. Open the .png file in a image editing program capable of using layers and simply place your image in a layer below the .png image. It will show through the transparent centre area. Also included is a .png file with the WOI logo used in the file.

Loved your new WOI main screen so thought that I would try and make a new mainscreen for WOV using your template as the existing one is looking somewhat dated unfortunately WOV seems to use a different DLL based menu format any ideas of how I can change it to look similar to the new WOI screen?

I'm afraid I don't understand the issue (as I also tried this in SF:P1), but I noticed that you resized the image, which isn't going to work without editing menusystem.ini (extract from menudata.cat) and moving the hotspots.

 

IN MENUSYSTEM.INI:

 

[MenuSystem]

StartMenu=MainScreen

Width=1024 <-- CHANGE THIS TO MATCH YOUR RESOLUTION

Height=768 <-- CHANGE THIS TO MATCH YOUR RESOLUTION

ColorDepth=16

TextFilename=MenuText.str

TimeDateTextFilename=TimeDate.str

MenuDataFilename=

FadeTime=0.25

WaitMouseCursor=WaitAnimation

I have changed the image size back to its original dimensions and placed it in the menu folder of WOV but when I run the game I only get a black screen on which the hot keys do work but the background image does not appear, any clues as to what I have done wrong?

Possible solution:

Rename the file to mainscreen.bmp and make sure you saved it as a 24bit bitmap image.
