What ho !
I’m looking for a little advice on an issue I’m having with the Build, Research and launch UI.
I’m using a 5760 x 1080 triple monitor setup and as you can see below the resolutions playing havoc with these menu’s
My goal (hopefully) is scale them down to the point where they fit more comfortably onto the screen, for reference they currently take up around 3/4 of right most monitor.
I’m as green as grass when it comes to Modding (of any kind) but I’ve spent the afternoon trying to get familiar with some of the tools people have posted links to. I’m now at the stage where I can use the BigDecrypter and UnfBig applications to pull the Lua data from the Homeword.Big files.
So now my current stumbling block is to find where the appropriate files are to edit. Looking in the HomeworldRM>Data file, there’s quite a few possible locations to choose from, even if I excluding the various music and Language .big files.
Where about’s should I start looking for the “BuildMenu_UI.Lua” files ( If there even called anything like that) and are there likely to be any other files that need changing to make a Mod like this work ?
Which brings me to my Second question, What are people using to edit these Lua files, a simple text editor ? or something more advanced ?
Oh and if it turns out what I want to do can’t be done with the tools we have to hand I’d appreciate the heads up
thanks in advance for any help given.
