Alternate blankbox images

Post by count_fuzzball »

I'm a big fan of the alternate interface in Modern Air Power(well, only interface as of now) and Naval Campaigns. I find the simple layout of the text labels directly in front of the player a breeze to control the jets, planes and ships with.

The only issue is the colour scheme! White text on a grey background? I'm practically straining my eyes! :lol:

So I've set about creating alternative black background edits of the blankboxH.bmp/png files and thought I might share them.

The first I've done so far is for the Spanish-American War demo (hence the bit of text ;) ).

Download is here:

I've also attached a more generic style one as well that can be used with any NC game, along with the source xcf file. If there's interest, I'll add the text for the whole NC series.

Enjoy!

Looks good I have to say.... Really makes the text stand out.

You might need to upload a zip attachment with the images in.... they appear to get resized so end up far too small to use in-game.

Thanks for the heads up, Parmenio! Added it as a zip file now.
