Hi everyone, i'm here 2 write a 2toe reall on how to use Visual Studio 2013 to make custom JJ2 mods.

First, install Microsoft Visual studio 2013.

Then, click open file -> Jazz2 directory -> Jazz2.exe

From there it will load the Windows part of the game engine into Visual Studio.

At that point, you can directly edit the resource files.

We're here to first demonstrate that you can edit the font of the music settings window.

Go to the left-hand side of the screen, and double click on various parts of the code until you find the menu for audio settings.

When you get to the music settings dialog, go to the right-hand side of the screen. There you can make custom edits to the font, layout and general appearance of the audio settings dialog.

Another cool trick is to edit Bitmap images from the game itself.

Double click on various items on the left-hand side, looking for icons.

You will find images like the JJ2 splash screen, and the JJ2 Windows icon.

You can thereby choose a custom splash screen and Windows icon, just by editing on the right-hand side of the screen.

You could even change your splash screen from that to this!

Thanks for reading the tutorial. I hope you found my demonstration on the products you can create using this feature of Visual Studio on Rabbit Journal on J2O.

Have a good day everyone - hope you enjoyed the post!

Uh, this is completely nonsense. Btw, the first and last screens are made by me a long time ago, lololol.
