I might be wrong but I think I saw a gif image that's used for that in the dll, but again I may be wrong. Its been a good while since I have played with it. Zay would know better than me I'm sure.

Zay can you tell me where the exact location inside the ehres.dll the wav file you change for startup is?
and maybe xzener you could possibly upload a zipped file of the wav file you sent to Zay - please

I want to try it, however I want to use it with my existing ehres.dll - since it is just the way I like it almost.

Thanks alot for help.

Here you go t41. http://files.getdropbox.com/u/820886...ll_INTRO_A.wav
Hope you like it, the 5 sec .wav file works great. Looks and sounds much like my old VMC setup now.

Sun I dont know the list, but the way I would go about it is to extract one someone else has modded (like the bloak theme) and compare to the real thing to see what files are getting changed.
