Graphics Installation

  1. Create a new folder in the bin folder of your PGA 2000 directory. You can name it whatever you want.
  2. You may want to create a permanent back up of your GameBmp.dll file in case you want to go back to the originals. The batch file creates a backup of the current GameBmp.dll file but it is overwritten each time you run the batch file.
  3. Download Resource Hacker and unzip it to the folder you created. The download is towards the bottom of the page.
  4. Download the script files for the graphics you want to install and unzip them to the new folder you created. The script files are found on the same page you downloaded the new graphics from.
  5. The script comes with the original images in the import folder. Replace them with the graphics you want to install. If you delete a file without replacing it the game will not load correctly after running the script. If the images are in folders, leave the folder structure the same. (With the flag script there is a gusty, breezy, calm, indicator and pin folder in the import folder.)
  6. Close the game if it is running. The script is not able to replace the GameBmp.dll file if the game is running.
  7. Run the file *.bat file that came with the script. (i.e. flag_scipt.bat, score_graphic_script.bat, etc.)
  8. Run PGA 2000 to see if the new graphics are working correctly.


Problem: "The application has failed to start because GameBmp.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem."

Check the script.log file in the folder you created for errors. Errors usually show up on the last line since that is where it got stuck.
