I found a thread that had a program but the link was dead. (Forgotten Hope Modding Tool Pack V11). Where can i find this program to make my own loading screens, so that i dont have the map name and date on them but just the middle pic and the upper and lower background.

Or better yet where can I get the bocage loading screen, that does not have text on top and bottom? That way i can cut and paste them to one i like and not have text? I tried using rfa extractor to find it in the files but the only loading screen i could find was berlin? Everything else was useless junk like buildings and etc.

To find map's loadscreens unpack maps from (your bf42 installation)\Mods\FH\Archives\bf1942\levels\now unpack whatever you want. IF you have it on a desktop for example, go: bf1942\levels\"unpacked map name"\Menu. You don't have to find Bocage loadscreen without letters, you can delete them in Photoshop. To create custom loadscreen you must have Adobe Photoshop and FH modding tools. Link to toolpack: http://www.forgottenmaps.net/dload.php?action=file&file_id=15

Now, when I'm back from school I can give you more advices, etc...

U-BoatI found a thread that had a program but the link was dead. (Forgotten Hope Modding Tool Pack V11). Where can i find this program to make my own loading screens, so that i dont have the map name and date on them but just the middle pic and the upper and lower background.

When you'll have FH modding tools (link in my previous post), unpack it to directorie of your choice. Now go to folder "Loadingscreen". Here you have two files. FH_LOADING_SCREEN_BASIC_LAYERS.dds and Interpla font. Take the Interpla to ???\Adobe\Photoshop\Plugins\ and put it here (directorie may differ, I wrote it from memory). If you haven't got Adobe Photoshop, click here: http://www.adobe.com/products/photoshop/tryout.html. You have to register to get a trial version of newest photoshop, it'll run for 30 days. Now let's get back to the loading screen from modding toolpack. Open FH_LOADING_SCREEN_BASIC_LAYERS.dds and edit it to change it to your own loading screen, note that things you see are stored as a layers so you can manipulate them.

Or better yet where can I get the bocage loading screen, that does not have text on top and bottom? That way i can cut and paste them to one i like and not have text? I tried using rfa extractor to find it in the files but the only loading screen i could find was berlin? Everything else was useless junk like buildings and etc.

Okay, you mean vanilla Bocage or Otolikos In The Hell Of Bocage? For the vanilla map, you have to unpack the FH texture.rfa and search the files. If you want Otolikos map's loadingscreen unpack this map and go bf1942\levels\In The Hell Of Bocage-1944\Manu\Texture and here you'll find InTheHellOfBocage.dds. To remove the text, just bouble click the layer's box wich will be named the same as text and change it or simply delete it. Something more?:D
