The thread should be working properly on the new forum, I trust. Or there will be better instructions, at least.

The size of the backgrounds depends on how the game installation was set up, if you haven't changed anything, normally the backgrounds are 800x600.
The files must be saved in 24-bit BMP and then converted into RGN with special tools that you can find in the DOWNLOAD section.
After converting them, put them in the "pictures" folder inside the game ".
As a last step you have to modify the "pics.cfg" file, here you have to associate the name of the file you created with the name of the team, the competition etc. etc.

The new site has not been launched yet, but we will put the instructions into a video tutorial instead. For now, the text that Dermotron wrote in the link you have should be good to get it going.

If not, just let us know where you're getting stuck.
