Main Menu THNs

I know this sounds crazy, but I'll have to ask as I can't seem to get an answer. The main menu backgrounds go into Data\Scripts\Intro. How can I determine which ones are loaded on startup?

For exacmple, when I tried FL Evolutions, it brought several new thn-s with itself, but the old ones remained in that folder too. I remember that the game, however, only loaded the new thn-s and abandoned the old ones.

In other words - how can you get a THN to load without needing to replace old ones? (Only, like, setting the old ones not to load, but still keep them)

I can't remember exactly what to do, but take a look in the Univers/Systems/Intro Folder... Think that will enlighten you a bit m8! :-)

all you have to do is make the new thn file, define the location and nickname of the file in the intro folder then go to universe/intro and define which intro you wish to use

ill add im at uni and cant look at the files currently

I did a search for files containing the string of one of the intro script filenames used by FL. No results

The Universe\Systems\INTRO folder seems to contain only a New York system file.. Probably one used by one of the missions of the game?

The menu screen is chosen at random by the EXE, it has the three intro base names hardcoded into it, they are - Intro1_Base, Intro2_Base, Intro3_Base.
The "Universe\Systems\Intro\Bases\Rooms" folder has three INIs, it's these files that reference the intro THNs.

**shuffles off with a new headache**

Do you know of a way to stop the game from chosing the intros at random and make it run them in order like 1,2,3,4 etc?
