The morning was quiet. The forest was peaceful. That is, until Atalanta's Orange Army meets Theseus' Green Army.
This will make the Age of Mythology main menu demonstrate what the game is all about: armies and fighting.
Watch two armies battle for supremacy in the background of the main menu. The initial armies include a hero and 15 hoplites, plus a Cyclops for Atalanta's side and a Battle Boar for the other. Reinforcements will arrive periodically for the losing side, to keep the battle going and the action going on right where you can see it (on the right side of the screen).
To install, extract the .scn file from the ZIP, then copy that file to the scenarios folder in your AOM directory. This will replace the sea background. To replace the Norse background instead, rename the file to ~ui_norse.scn
Nice! However, Battle Boar aren't Greek's Myth unit ;)

Yeah, but I needed someone to toss units around en masse. The boar could've been a minotaur, though, although the boar permitted the side coming from the right to advance against the left.

I think it's a very good main menu background.
Additional Comments: No comments, I just wanted to give my rating for this nice background.

Now this makes my normally boring menu sequence realy enthralling. The eye candy was supberb. And it's a bit insperational... :)
Additional Comments: Sometimes, the battle is tugged into the center of the screen.

Simple eye-candy is more fun to look at sometimes. (like the one with the Nighogg)
Additional Comments: This does encourage me to find more custom backgrounds though...

This is really cool, but mainly because I couldn't be bothered to find the right model for that hidden santa claus texture in textures.bar, so I put it on Theseus! It's really funny to see Santa Claus controlling an army. Apart from that, it's very very good!
