Whenever I choose ECW and click on a unit I get a huge screen showing the unit's characteristics in addition to the smaller screen... how do you get rid of the huge screen?

You should only see a detailed unit description popup if you have the CTRL key pressed when you click on the unit.

Can you explain the circumstances in more detail.

And possibly attach a screenshot:

To take a screenshot in game, hit F2. This will save a screenshot to \My Documents\My Games\PikeandShot\Screens.

However it is a 5Mb .tga file which is far too large to attach to a post. You need to convert it to a Medium quality .JPG, which should be about 160-190K.

If you don't have a graphics program that can do this, you can go to:

http://image.online-convert.com/convert-to-jpg

Hit the Choose Files button, and choose the file you want to convert.

Then select Quality Settings- Medium.

Then Convert File.

It takes a few seconds to upload the 5Mb TGA file, but the .jpg comes back in your Downloads folder and should be below the 256K limit for attachments.

You can then attach this to your post by selecting the Upload attachment tab underneath the text entry box, hit the Choose File button and select the file from wherever you put it (the Downloads folder if you used the method above).

Note you can also add a SCREENSHOTOUTPUT value to your user.txt. As per the autodocs:

//0 = tga, 1 = jpg, 2 = png
ScreenShotOutput
