ok, elDiablo's E-Z mod:

rename graphics.dat to .zip and extract it to a directory in ur uplink folder (uplink\my mod). (same with loading if u wanna change the loading screens)

However, that'll put it in a another folder inside that so it's easiler to extract to uplink, then rename that folder to my mod, or whatever.

do the same with patch.dat

look at the pretty pics inside the folder :) open them in a graphics package, and edit them! easy! make sure to save them as .tif files and to be called the same as they were. keep the dimensions the same, and save them with NO compression (or the colours go all fecked up).

Change the file theme.txt to how u want, and then run uplink! easy!

for a more indepth tutorial, ask me to make one (and i might... that's an idea.... :)) or download one of the ones that already exist!

thank u!
