View Full Version : Where can I find default Forgotten Battles backgrounds?

04-03-2006, 04:30 AM
Or at least some other good backgrounds (from IL-2 etc.) as I'm sick of my default FB+PF merged ones.

Any help appreciated.

If you're speaking about the background pic you get while a mission is loading, then it's possible, you have to use .tga format pics (easy to turn any .jpg into a .tga with ACDC, Photoshop, Paintshop and I suppose other free programs )then place this .tga pic in the nation folder of the "mission" folder (for ex DE,GB,RU etc..)
Now if you're talking about the default pic while the game is loading (the flaming FW190 Dora and the La 7) then I have no idea if this can be changed.

Ok thanks. Now I have question; is it possible to change game loading screen (when you double click FB+AEP+PF icon - game version is also shown on that screen).
I think that's not possible but I'm not sure.
I kinda miss that old screen LA-7+FW-190D. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

I can change all other backgrounds once the game loads... and I know how to do it, just... I lack proper screens to convert/place in appropriate place. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

Have a look in the Mission Builders forum at Bird_brain's "Campaign Building Guide" or similar. In that he shows you how to make your own background images. It's pretty easy to do.

the "DE" version of the game can be nice for a change . . . .

I was laughing out loud when I realized that depending on your conf.ini language settings, there are different battle scenarios shown in the loading screen...of course, with your 'preferred' result... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif that's where the root of all whining was planted manybe... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif
