A simple but effective mod from the nEw-GEN team. This download reduces the Legacy user interface down to exactly what you need, no fancy animations in the background, no introduction movies and a condensed main menu with easily accessible configuration pages. This modification is something which can be used by those who are experiencing technical difficulties with the main menu (sound lagging, slow mouse pointer movement) and those who generally want a cleaner, more streamlined interface. The download also includes the Legacy Splash image from the Mission Editor as the main legacy loading splash image. The download also includes a new mapping of the keyboard, this may suit some people but for those who have already become accustomed to the legacy keyboard configuration instructions are provided to exclude the modification.
All in all, a good modification which will undoubtedly make menu navigation a much smoother operation!
Note. This modification works solely with a unpatched, stock version of Legacy.
