(I'm experimenting with various things in this version, so it uses an installer/UI modding program now.)
1) Extract all files to your Desktop. Or wherever.
2) Run TAD Observer UI Installer.exe
3) Hopefully you can figure it out from there. Taunt 21
4) If you can't figure it out, then in most cases, all you need to do is a) select your Game Resolution ('other' and refer to the Appendix in the readme if your resolution is not one of the 6 available) b) click on 'Install' c) you're done.
DISCLAIMER: While I've tried my best to make this program as user-friendly as I could, I take no responsibility for anything that may happen as a result of you installing this.
If there are any problems you can contact me via email (see readme) and I will try and sort it out.
The ui file is not currently compatible with vanilla aoe3. To uninstall the UI, simply run the installer and click on the 'Uninstall UI' button.
Also note that you may notice some differences when playing some scenarios (but not all).
Please note that it is recommended that all observers have the UI file installed , but players 1 and 2 need only have the map.
I forgot to mention this in the map credits, but with 1.7, the ability for the map to have some kind of support for custom resolutions (and in the process auto-loading settings) was partly due to musketeer925's suggestion of using the saveCamera() function to store the constants. So it's thanks to him that you aren't stuck with some lousy method which takes ages to save :P
I notice that people hardly ever comment on my works, so I'll take it as a sign that things are working fine. 1.7 is still very much a test of various things, so I do appreciate feedback.
As term has just started for me though, it may take a while for any suggestions to be incorporated.

This map does support custom resolutions, but you have to do the configuring yourself.
When installing (or even if you have already installed, then reinstall), select the 'Other' resolution option. Start up one of the 1.7 maps as an observer. Then when the menu pops up, click on the button which says 'customize'. Try click on the button which says '1', then click on '+10'. This shifts the position of player 1's population by 10 spaces to the right. Keep doing this until everything is in position (look at the readme for more info on what number is what).
Once done, click on 'save'. Run the installer (but don't click on install). Then click on 'Install Most Recent'.
Your resolution will now load automatically.
Hopefully I can get a video about this done at some point.
