updating the main menu

Postby sunrise » Mon Sep 10, 2012 6:15 pm

The smokin'guns main menu as well as the desktop icon is very outdated and the first imperession is very important to keep new players, so maybe it's time for an eyecandy update.
I have some nice ideas, but i'm a newbie in this area and i don't know, if its possible and how much work is necessary to make the changes.

Always thought SG main menu is sexy :)
Anyway, Sunrise, I understand what you are saying.

Did you try the new icon I posted? Based on the same image, but with higher quality.

For new players the first step would be to change default of multiplayer to internet and not to local .. a new player don't find servers: doesn't watch why --> delete ..

Regarding a possible update of the main menu: does someone have the sources of the rendered background?
