    To change the launcher background, please make sure you have ran the launcher at least once before proceeding.
    1. Go to your Fallout: New Vegas folder in Windows Explorer. Unless you've changed your install path, it can be found inside your Steam folder > steamapps > common > Fallout New Vegas.
    2. Navigate into the Data folder. You should see the UI folder. If you can't, it means you haven't ran the NV:MP launcher previously or you haven't patched your client.
    3. Inside this folder, place your custom background (must be a .PNG type) here and rename it to: "LauncherBackground.png" (without quotes)
    4. Start up the launcher and you should see your background take effect. If you see a message along the line of: "Failed to load custom background, exception thrown", please check the message that follows it to see if your image format is valid or not. If the error still persists, create a bug report.
