    Hello,

    With the release of Version 2.4.2 the Old Battle Window was increased by 25% so the Gen 6 sprites could fit properly. But that happens to leave the old battle fields somewhat smaller than the actual window. So I took it upon myself to resize all the available battle fields (There's 51) for the Old Battle Window.

    Now all of your old favorite battle fields should look great with the new updated client. Remember that you can only use 11 different battle fields by default so feel free to rearrange them as you see fit.



    Download


    To install the battle fields please follow these directions:

    1) Delete the battle_fields folder from any theme you wanna use (The Themes are located in the PO Themes folder).
    2) Extract the battle_fields RAR.
    3) Copy or move the extracted folder to the theme that you would like to use.

    There's only 11 battle fields supported by default as you said. Those 11 were included in the client update under the Classic Theme.
    The other 40 backgrounds are not classified as official, and were not updated as a result.

    Your instructions will fix the issues for custom themes that decided to add custom backgrounds, but for themes that didn't do it(including the 3 default themes), there was no issue as it always falls back to Classic.

    Another note: you need all the backgrounds you use in the same folder. The path is defined as
    ("battle_fields/%1.png").arg((rand()%11)+1)))) .
