Well, In the light of the recent topic I decided to give ORCAcommander some help, teach him what I knew kind of thing. But then it hit me - Why not make it into a tutorial that the public can use too?

So I did.

This tut will cover basic editing of the TS GAME.exe and Language.dll.
Note that to tell you evereything would take forever, therefore it should be taken as a starting point, rather than a full database of knowlage. Once you have followed the steps in it it is up to you to use common sense and the basic rules Ive set down to help you.

This is my first tutorial on anything (ever), and is on a diffucult topic, so forgive any mistakes. It is in word because it contains images, and is easier for me to write offline.

Tutorial includes:

- Suggested programs for editing
- Changing file names that TS searches for
- Changing the drop-pod infantry
- A note about the tags and command line options in TS
- Editing the dialog boxes (adding text etc)
- Changing text in game, like loading screen text, SW charge text, "game over" text etc...
- Changing the IE message to one that shows the debug file (useless really, but looks nice!)
- Changing the EXE's cursor/Icon

And as of the 8th of july:
- Changing the menu text and colours for a new side colour
- Fixed most of the things TShyper mentioned

Maybe more in the future? If I add anything (upload a newer version), I will tell you.

Any questions?
Just ask and I'll try to help.
