Default How to setup "USER THEME"

Hi All,

Since 2.5.4, I just noticed the "USER THEME" in wallpaper list.
After some investigation and test, I figured out how to install customized wallpaper, loading picture, and BGM.

Quote:
1. Go to C:\users\<username>\saved games\dcs.xxx\missioneditor\
2. create a folder 'themes' if not exists
3. create a folder 'main' in 'themes', if not exists
4. create a folder 'ME' in 'main', if not exists
5. put your customized wallpaper picture into it (base-menu-window.png)
6. you can also put customized load picture (loading-window.png) in the same folder
7. for customized BGM: MainMenuLoop.ogg under Sounds\EditorMusic
Enjoy

Thanks a lot ... up to now I was using Roadrunner's Mod for this, but this seems much better. Best regards

Edit: Just tried it, works perfectly, thanks again

Oh awesome! I no longer have to replace the darn F-18 music every time I update the game!
(Brass instruments are not my thing, but love the wallpaper matching my plane)

This worked for me:

for customized BGM: MainMenuLoop.ogg under Sounds\EditorMusic

I converted my MP3 into OGG on this web: https://audio.online-convert.com/convert-to-ogg
