Strikefighters2 NATO Fighters 5 Hi-Res 1920x1080 Menu Screens and Music!


SF2 NATO Fighters 5 Hi-Res 1920x1080 Menu Screens and Music v5
By Viper 05/17/2020

Note: I removed all the nation sounds from this Menu packs for size reasons. If you intend to install the "VIPER63A HQ Menu Sounds" pack, please install that pack first. Installing the HQ Sound pack over the Menu pack may overwrite some of the menu specific music files. You can always re-install this menu pack to get the menu specific theme music back.

This mod includes custom "NATO" themed menu screens, pilots and music (AC5, thanks to tonipm99). This mod will over write the MainScreen INI delivered in the NF5 package with the stock INI file. I did this so I can go back to using JPEG images rather than the BITMAP menus that came with the original NF5 packages. 

Unzip the package and preview the new screens before installing them. I recommend doing this as there are MANY alternate screens I have in there that you might like better. If you choose to install this package, I recommend that you back up your FLIGHT, MENU and PILOTDATA folders in the SF2 Mod folder you're installing this package into. Just in case you want to go back to your original setup.

* To install, simply unzip and copy the uncompressed FLIGHT, MENU and PILOTDATA folders to your StrikeFighter2 mod folder.

My StrikeFighter2 mod on Win10 64-bit was..(yours may be different)...

C:\Users\<your_id>\Saved Games\Thirdwire\StrikeFighter2 Europe\
or 
C:\Users\<your_id>\Saved Games\Thirdwire\StrikeFighter2 NF5\
or 
whatever....

Enjoy!

      Hello everyone,

      I have a question about the location of weapons .ini files.  I have been looking for it using CAT extractor.  I am unable to find the .ini files for the weapons in SF2.  May I ask if anyone know where I can find it?

      If someone knows which weapons pack is up-to-date and is released for SF2, please let me know too.  I will contact author about tweaking their .ini for weapons, respectfully.  If the permission is approved, I will start .ini dancing through a long list of weapons.

      The information and advice are much appreciated, as always.  I am still looking for files again in SF2. 
      I am working on the project that sorts the weapon list like I did with the aircraft list.
      Cheers!

      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      This is a very first version of SF2 UI Expansion mod.  There may be bugs or problems.  If you face any bugs or problems, please inform me.
      The purpose of this mod is to expand / improve the SF2 UI.  In the first version, it does two things:
      1)    Change the aircraft list when displaying the list.  Aircraft list are sorted by nation first.  There are three versions:
      a.    Version #1: Nations’ multi-branches are combined, so you’ll see (USN / USMC) A-4s or (RN / RAF) F-4Ks as an example.  If aircraft have skins for a multi-nations, it will have ‘>>’ at end of aircraft name.
      b.    Version #2:  There are both symbol ‘>’ and ‘>>’.  For any aircraft that is used by multi-branches, will use ‘>’, while any aircraft with skins for a multi nations will have ‘>>’ at the end of name.
      c.    Version #3: Same as version 2 with simplified year tag.  Instead of (19XX), it will show as ‘XX.
      2)    RWR and RADAR being displayed on the screen, there are 4 versions:
      a.    Version #1: RWR + RADAR upper right corner
      b.    Version #2: RWR + RADAR upper left corner
      c.    Version #3: RWR (upper left corner) + RADAR (upper right corner)
      d.    Version #4: RADAR (upper left corner) + RWR (upper right corner)
      Plans for next version:
      -    New menu + GUI (WIP)
      -    Make smaller version of RWR + RADAR
      -    If time permits, will work on ordinance list, so they will be sorted by type of ordinance before the name.

      The feedback are always appreciated!  ENJOY!

      _SF2 - Menu Expansion v1.0.rar
    • By Eagle114th
      Hello everyone,
      It has been a hectic week for me. I am still working on new SF2 menu project slowly.  At the same time, since I got a new external SSD as an alternative storage for my external HDD.  1 TB external is affordable now.  To my surprise, it is small and doesn't even require me to plug into power outlet, unlike an external HDD. I could just hook it into my gaming laptop's USB 3.1 T Type-C.  Oh boy, it made a huge difference. I am able to load SF2 much faster now. 

      I just wiped my old SF2 multi-installation, in order, to have a fresh start with SF2.  I spent weeks installing many mods for SF2, in order, to make up for my lost SF2 files.

      I decided to work on aircraft sorting list for my preference ways of sorting the list by nation first, then aircraft.  I started with default SF2.  (Note: I bought SF2 complete Edition since it is on sale.  It is a perfect time to get it before the time runs out.) 

      Here is what default list looks like:

       
      Now with a new sorting list (by nation), it looks like this:
      NOTE: When you see [Export], it means it have a multi nations skins included.  






      I am very pleased with this.  With the new sorting list, I am able to quickly tell which nation specific aircraft belong to. It has been an educational day for me about the nations and aircraft versions.  If anyone wants this, I could post it in combatace download section.  I modified All the aircraft .ini in a clean SF2 (Without mods).  That way anyone can build the mods on it. I am still brainstorming about what to do with [Export] tag.  Should I replace it with '*" or any certain symbols to the end of the aircraft name?  Feedback are appreciated, as always.

      Plus, I also can add updated HUDDATA.ini with both RWR and RADAR being included on upper right corner. I modified it this way, so I can easily scan my eyes between both RWR and Radar while padlocking around.  (Note: Either RWR / Radar will only show up if aircraft have either.  For example, if you fly aircraft that doesn't have either RWR or Radar, it won't show up on the screen.

      Hello everyone,

      I am working on a new menu for SF2.  It is a slow WIP.  I will share the progress here.  For now, I have created two screens as my rough draft / conceptual arts.  I am working on creating 3D looking buttons and Is still learning how to edit .ini files from various menu mods.  I always wanted a Jane's Fighter Anthology style GUI / Menu for SF2. 
      Now I have decided to give it a try!  Here are screenshots

      SF2 Main Menu

       
      Mission Briefing (WIP, I am still tweaking and adding a few more items)

       
      Here are three versions of buttons:  Regular, mouse hovering over it, and mouse clicking.





      Feedback are always appreciated.
