55aa Posted March 30, 2015 Share Posted March 30, 2015 Given that I admittedly had never been much of a fan of the default "map" client backgrounds, I was trying out some original game background files with it, and found the following two to work suprisingly well: RA\redalert.mix\hires.mix\sovpaper.pcx SUN\tibsun.mix\local.mix\dbak6440.pcx (Some colors may be a bit inaccurate due to Imgur recompressing images, especially that greenish tint on the last one is quite a bit off.) The images scale quite well and still look nice even with a maximized client window, and some pixellation that becomes visible actually adds a lot of charme to it as it is a bit of a throwback to the old interfaces. An issue that had been raised with the CnCNet 5 client was how it supposedly had very little to none of the look-and-feel of the original game interfaces, and I think these images serving as background help address this concern at least somewhat. An archive with the images is attached; the files come in PNG format and are renamed to CnCNet5ClientBackground.png , so they are ready to use with the CnCNet5 client (image needs to be put in " <game_directory>\CnCNet5\Others\ ", make a backup of the existing file before overwriting). cncnet5_ra1_ts_classic_backgrounds.zip Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
