A very minor, minor point. In a future revision patch for WOFF, the team might want to change the American flag
that appears several places in WOFF from a 50 star flag to the 48 star flag in the year 1918.

I know this is thread necromancy mycomputer but, I too noticed the US flag having 50 stars instead of the 48 found in 1917-18.

I have been working on one for a little bit for my own personal use:

...still want to add the "waves" into the flag, but haven't had time to make that happen quite yet. Also see that a staggered 48 star flag was used...might try that one too.

Regards,

Jeff

I made one and sent it to them years ago and told them it could be included on an update, apparently it was forgotten.

Or post it as a mod if it is a simple "move & replace."
Kind of feel dirty now in my American career.

Very nice BB, and we can now convert it back to a BMP once we have it downloaded.

I don't know if that will even work. As it is now, it is a link to my Photobucket page, lol.

I also have photobucket, and I noticed that the flag image from there (and here on the page) seems to be a bit smaller than the actual image I made...I'm at work and don't remember the specifics, but I had to expand it a bit to get it back to the same size as the WOFF:UE image

Thanks for the heads up on the size difference Jeff. I've grabbed the flag you built as well and will try them both when I get back home.

The bmp file I made was the right size and worked, I just tested it, and it works in WOFF UE. However that is the original bmp, the one in photobucket is a jpg, and there may be a png there (the bmp wouldn't load there either and photobucket converted it). Other than that I don't know what to tell ya.
