But the reason for my post is this. Are there "pure" versions without the login section that I can use as a desktop wallpaper?
If not can the devs post em where I can download em?
EDIT: Thanks to das_nooblet, the solution is here. Of course now I think they look better with the sparks.
1. Go to your World_of_tanks\res\packages folder, the file you are looking for is gui.pkg
2. Extract it with WinRAR or a similar program that can open .pkg files.
3. In the extracted folder, go to gui\maps\login,should see back_1_without_sparks.png through to back_12_without_sparks.png
4. Copy to wherever you want, delete the surplus, and voila
p.s. just copy the gui pkg and you will also find the sweet tutorial images too.
