This is fantastic!! Unfortunately, I can't seem to get it to work. I did the TIE Fighter conversion for XWA and did the most recent version of the DSUCP, so when I try to run the Super Backdrop exe it says that it's already installed, but then when I get in-game it just looks like this:

Also another thing I've noticed (though not specifically related to this) is explosions are sometimes cut off, like the texture is too big for the surface so it happens in an awkward square shape. Any suggestions?

Firstly the TIE Fighter conversion is NOT supported by either the DSUCP or the XWAUCP

Secondly the DSUCPv2.4 and the XWAUCPv1.4 both already have an UPDATED version of the Superbackdrop included with there installation packages, one reason you can not install the outdated individual Superbackdrop.exe.

Thirdly once you've installed the TIE Fighter conversion your overwriting files that have been updated and changed, probably why the explosions are appearing in small boxes, and making your version of XWA likely to crash.

From my understanding the TIE Fighter conversion HAS NOT been updated and is still based on the v2.3 version of the DSUCP

If you want to play the TIE Fighter conversion I suggest you contact the person who put it together and ask them to update it.

Fair enough, thanks for the explanation.

Hi, i'm searching for a "city planet"-style planet as a backdrop, for example to create missions over Coruscant (as in Ep. III). I know there is the Episode II shipset from Genral Trageton, in which a raw textured version of this backdrop is included, but I don't want to overwrite my actual XWA-status (with DSUCP 2.5) with this...
But I saw in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-F1NppyzFT0 about reshading a very detailed version of this kind of backdrop. Is this kind included in the Super Backdrop patch or is it a separate one? Is there a way to add single and specific backdrops, maybe as an opt or something?

Yes, it is included in DSUCP and XWAUCP.. Backdrop number 10 in the Allied mission editor. Get a look at page 3 of this topic to have a preview and choose your backdrop ;)
