I thought it used to be that you could simply switch out the file in data/textures/wood1.png

I *thought* I used to be able to simply replace that file and my new desktop would show up accordingly. Now that doesn't seem to work and I am not sure what I need to change to alter the desktop.

Can someone explain how to do that?

You need to start off by making a new ruleset, then you look in the base.xml file. Point the path to the new filename, and voila! There is your new texture. Hope this helps.

Alright... here is how it worked for me.

1: Create a new ruleset folder. Name it whatever you like.
2: Copy all of d20 ruleset into this new folder.
3: In your campaign folder, open up the campaign.xml file You will see a line like so;
<ruleset name="d20" />
Change it to the name of the ruleset folder you created, eg
<ruleset name="newrulest_d20" />
Save and close this file.

4: Navigate to your rulest folder. Open up the base.xml file with an editor.
5: find the line marked;
<desktopimage file="data\textures\rtttoee.png" />
6: change the path to the new name, eg
<desktopimage file="data\textures\newtexture.png" />
Save and close the xml file.

Cross your fingers, open FG
The new texture should be there.
