First you will need to make a new image or convert a existing one, for this to work make



sure the image is 800x600 pixels and not even on pixel bigger!!! If you do make a image



with other pixel amount the results can often be VERY nice(laugh), next you must make



sure that the image has only 256 colors and is in pcx format(zsoft paintbrush), next



you will have to apply a palette to the file that matches the Diablo II palette, if



you don't know where to get something like that simply go here. After



you applied the palette you will need to save the image as titlescreen.pcx and convert



the image from pcx to the dc6 format used by Diablo II, do this with dc6con(also get



that one from the phrozenkeep), now simply use dc6con



like mpq2k(throughout run option in start menu) note: since this and also mpq2k are



dos programs you will need to have all files in the same folder, type in



'dc6con titlescreen.pcx' (DO NOT APPLY A TRANSCOL!!!), now after you have the dc6



image use psidc6(also from the phrozenkeep) to test the image, if it works then



read the green text, if it does not work read the red text:









1. If the image seems to get twisted or has messed up colors then you
have not applied the palette, or your image is more then 256 colors, or
you may have applied a transcol by mistake, or your image is to big in
size.







2. If it does work launch mpq2k and put the new image into this location:







mpq2k a patch_d2.mpq titlescreen.dc6 data\global\ui\frontend\titlescreen.dc6






now
simply test it and your mod should have a new title screen like my mods
do 8-), aka: with this very same method you can also change the char
select screen(charselectbckg.dc6) and also the trademark screen
named(trademark.dc6).
