I'm trying to change the main menu for my TOS mod. I want to get rid of the animations and replace them with new images (connie, d7, bop, etc). Any ideas? Any help would be great.

Well, if you get rid of the title animations, the menu crashes. However, a way to "remove" them is to open a paint program, make a 1x1 white pixel (or whatever color, doesn't matter) and then using the BINK tools turn that into a bink. Rename it to the name of the menu animations, and your animations dissappear. Whats left is the background which is a static BMP called mainbkgr.bmp that lurks in the bitmaps/main directory. You can easily edit it with a paint program of your choice. You will need to make new bitmaps for the lower right menu options (exit, credits, options, replay intro) so that when you rollover with the mouse, the image changes as per the original. Hope this helps

Ok, next question is how to change to bink. I am using Paint Shop Pro and can't find any BINK tool. Sugestions?

Bink Video is a free program you can download if you search "RAD Tools" on the web.
