Hovertank 3D - second title editing aka help me

I'm using HDC (Hovertank Data Compiler) and in the sprites/pictures you can edit everything except this screen I linked above.


Can anybody tell me how to edit it? Because I checked the signs with a hexeditor, but these aren't in the HOVER.EXE file.


Somebody help me, please!!!
Yeah, piece of cake!

It could be in the executable itself. You looked just for the text right?

I could take a peek if I had a copy of the game.

Looking at the SDL'd source on github and it lists "TITLEPIC":

I would have thought it would be with the rest of the images :confused

This should be in the same image "chunk" as the other half of the title screen. I'm not sure but I think there was either a button or a scroll bar that shows the second half of that screen/image.

But unless the HDC help file is horribly outdated, you can't edit any of the images with HDC anyway.

Edit: I re-checked that. There are two radio buttons (or whatever they are called) that say left image and right image, right below the image in the editor. And you can actually edit the title screen. I've tried and it worked.
