    Red face A re-design

    Well the last few days ive been busy in my little lab, and i re-designed the few screens of MDS, to a more modern feel, see below, what do people think?

    I chose this view because it is a modern day city and the twin towers in, its for rememberance also, but if people are offended i have a replacement picture.

    Edit: Pictures removed

    Game Loading/Starting Game Screen


    Game Menu


    Selection Menu


    Multiplayer screen (not really useful but it looks nice)


    Tutorial (same here)

    Very nice work. I really like it. But a few suggestion that you may consider:

    -Maybe use another picture for the loading. I dunno. I like different images.

    -In the multiplayer image the lower text is hidden. It doesnt look that well.

    Relly great work. If you want you may do that pictures that pope up when you choose country so it be something like in HoI.

    A different picture altogether? or one on that picture. Most of the backgrounds in EU2 are the same so i just used the same for the backgrounds. The loading wud usually have something else on, but i didnt know what to put

    Yea i noticed, it uses the same image as the menu image, so id have to remove the text from both if you want.

    Kevyinus, can you send the backgrounds over when you're finished experimenting with them? I'd like to incorporate them into v6.2

    The spirits is 36mb or something big.
    The town thing if I understand you correct is 5 mb big.

    Yeah, the servers are really bogged down it seems. Thanks for the files Kevyinus, this will surely give the game more spice!

    I think the 6.1 flags are the ones Josip has.

    So Kevyinus, are you going to try to use the HoI sprites for MDS?
