Can someone point me to the text (or graphic for text) on the Geoscape menu?

i'd like to get my old menu back :

yes, am familiar and have read ufopedia.org extensively. The issue is that when I alter geobord.scr to look like geobord2.gif below, the Geoscape looks like screen020.gif. This tells me that the *menu* is no longer part of geobord.scr ...

The menu is localized so it's stored separately: https://www.ufopaedia.org/index.php?title=LANG1.DAT
In OpenXcom you can find the menu for each language in Data\Language\*.geo

bingo.

- copied english.geo (and englishuk.geo) to my xcom/geodata folder, renamed them to lang1.dat (and lang2.dat) and let BB's toolkit 'convmisc' turn them to .Gifs. Edit*. 'convmisc' them back to .Dat files, then copy them back into oxc/Language and rename them back to english.geo (& englishuk.geo)

* then save Gif as type87a ( non interlaced )



presenting, 0xC w/ modified Geoscape panel :)
