The question I have is, pertaining to the 3-D graphics specifically and only the 3-D graphics, can they be used for the rest of the series ?
Obviously each OOB and info download is game specific, correct ?



1) You can copy and paste the 3d graphics to the other games in the series but you will be limited by the number of original images in the other games bitmaps as the oob's are locked down. Just look at the difference in size between the overland 3DUnits100c bitmap and any other from any game in the series. John Tiller has promised all the games in the series will be unlocked once the series has run its course. The only game that is truly unlocked is Overland that is why I did not do this before.
2) Yes each OOB and info download is game specific. We have been able to play around with the oob's, as I found a work around, but you are limited by what you can do.
Hope this helps.

An error was found with the Overland standard graphics package.
The units file name has a space after it, before the .BMP. The way it currently is, the units will not show up in the game. When the space is removed, the units will appear as they normally would.

I have altered the name and if you download it now then it will work.
You can also get it to work by deleting the space.

Error found and rectified .
Both standard and 3d mods are updated.

The Leader bitmap for the info folder has been updated due to and older version of the leader bmp being used which showed some images of the leaders with no image I have replaced it for a newer version. I have put up on the downloads a leaders zip so as you don't have to download the info files again if you don't want to.

Great graphics package -- like others have said, "like eye candy".

Everything works fine after I corrected my copying error.

Thanks again guys for the great work you did here.

When you have unziped the files and when you drag them into the correct folders you will be asked if you want to overwrite the old files if you were not asked this then you still have the old files.
It is a common issue you must have all the files sounds like your unit bmp is wrong as the supply wagon should be pointing to a reb supply image.
Take another look and see.

I am stumped again... this time on the 3D mods. When I go to 3D Zoom, I lose the unit 3D bmps; I see the leaders, guns, wagons, etc. but the infantry and cavalry units disappear. Any ideas?

Everything looks good at regular 3D; the problem only appears at 3D zoom.

The zoom in file is there in the download, I would say you have not saved it in the correct folder.
Has anyone else had the problem that Ken is having?

Thanks man but it's not just me I could not have done it without the team.
The 3 D images seem to be going down a treat.
Glad you like the mod.

Looks amazing!! As always great work. Now I just need Overland haha. I guess you could use these 3d .bmp for the other HPS titles, the oobs would just be off and display the wrong units I assume.

You are correct John, however if you copy and paste the 3d regimental images you like and put them over similar regiments in the other hps titles you would get a similar effect. If you wanted the unit bmp to link to the 3d images you would have to mess about with that also.
All the best
