M2D GFX Update (Performance version)
I removed a lot of files and updated the xml to point to other files in other tabs. got rid of about 20 image files.
I also cleaned up the XML it self which made the manila load faster.
THIS IS ONLY A GRAPHICS UPDATE.
There are no executables or dll's inside the cab.
Why I call this the performance version:
the GFX are now only 1.87mb and only 400 files (over 20 files deleted)
Most of the GFX are PNG's and saved at 8bit and fewest colors that I can accept. (you might need to find your self a new background)
Half of the files get installed in \\Windows\\ManilaGFX to clean up the windows folder as much as possible.
There should be 2 cabs uploaded: one compressed, and one not. I would assume that cooks might want to use the compressed cab to save space.
I recommend cooking your manila exe's and dll's and add the cab for autorun. This way if you want to make a new skin, you will have a clean windows folder. Keep in mind, that because of the extremely high file count the cab takes a while to install.
Hopefully someone will find this useful.
EDIT: looks like I could only upload 1 cab this time.
P.S. Has anyone got an exe patched for weather???????????????????????????????
