But can you change the unit card picture? I don't like the NORFORCE picture(nothing racist).
Or the card of the unit's weapon i.e. F-88 unit card picture is wrong, so is the LAAD Javelin's.

thanks in adnvance for any reply


It would be best to have the mod creator update the mod, but it is possible to do it yourself.

You will need the modded NDF and a fresh vanilla NDF. Open the modded NDF in the Modding Suite, search for the items in the list below, and use the top left square button to "Export".

campdyn_proto1\ndfscripting
campdyn_proto1\ndfscriptingforalternative1

campdyn_pusan_pocket\ndfscripting
campdyn_pusan_pocket\ndfscriptingforalternative1


Once extracted, open the vanilla NDF, search each one again, and use the square button at the top to "Replace" each with the now extracted modded version. Sometimes this process corrupts the NDF and causes the game to crash, so just try again if that happens, but maybe take it once component at a time before testing. Let me know if you need better instructions



Can you expand on this? I cant figure out how to get the replacement process to work. Every time I try to export and then replace it corrupts the NDF file

I'll run through the instructions in case you are missing something. I also find that "everything" tends to get corrupted and that closing the Modding Suite after steps 2 and 3 helps. If the file gets corrupted then try again.

1) Set your export path so you know where the extracted file ends up. If you already have extracted files, delete those in case there is some issue overwriting them.

2) Find the item you want to extract from your modded NDF, select it, then use the Raw Data > Export button (not the Textures > Export). The extracted file should be in the folder you previously set.

3) Find the same item you want to replace in the Vanilla NDF, select it, then use the Raw Data > Replace button (again, not the Textures one). Select the previously extracted file.
