Thanks, Ibrin. :) (Been awhile since I've run into you in this thread.)

This mod has been quite a learning experience for me. It's satisfying and rewarding, but I'm a little anxious to get it complete now. Not sure I can squeeze this out in time to get an entry into the big contest, but I'm definitely going to try. ;)

I can't remember if you have these games or not. If so, do you want to test the triplehead version for me?

Also, my intention has been to promote the mod as "WSGF presented/sponsored", or something like that, in order to give the site some attention. You OK with me sticking a credit like that in the readme/installer graphics/demo video?

Fixed the horribly-stretched title graphic on the main menu:


Also decided that the super-stretched Witch King background was unacceptable, so how about this?


I can center the game title in the middle monitor if you want, though I think it looks nice on the darker background of Mordor's sky.

I'm getting a little jealous of you TH players who will actually be able to play this on 3 screens. The best I can do is faux-TH @ 1440x384. :(

All 3 pieces have very different looks and feels, it shocked me at first glance, but all in all it's clearly better than stupidly stretched material :) and yes, the title looks great like that, Mordor is such a killer background... so to speak...

Yeah, the 3 distinct images are a little jolting visually. I thought of blending the edges, but since the image borders will exactly match the monitor bezels, I thought it better to leave them as-is so each screen is distinct. Unless I stumble across some hi-res witch king artwork that would make a killer backdrop for TH, I'll just leave this as-is. Certainly is better than super-stretchy fatty Witch King. :P

That Mordor background is my favorite. The animated Mordor shellmap of BFME1 (which the still came from) looks so nice I love to sit and watch the roiling clouds and Sauron's electrified eye.

All hail the new TripleHeader !!! :)
Congrats man, that's one heck of a mod and it's nice to see it finally done & nicely awarded !

As I'm struggling with Triplehead monitors, a brand new 30" panel, Ati/nvidia cards to test and my girlfriend's PC's sudden decision to die, I lack the time to play BFME2... but when I do rest assured I'll post screenies of your mod in action in all sizes/formats available to me :)

Congrats again - and many thanks !

Thanks, scav! I'm looking forward to joining the TH bandwagon.

I hope you can get your monitor issues sorted out and get back to the gaming. BTW, you got a credit in the mod's readme. ;) Thanks for all the help.

Yes sir, this mod works great for me, nothing like playing the Minas Tirith map the way it was meant to be played.

Or the way it wasn't ;)
