With all EPs and some EPs, the wall hangings section of the catalogue became unmanageable. Rather than having to wade through all the pages, I decided to hide most of the items and keep only some of them.
I also try to save most textures by making texture referencing or standard recolours for the items that are kept.

This instalment has hiders for two basegame and two UNI posters. Textures are transferred to the Inverted Vertigo basegame poster. So each zip includes a hider, plus the corresponding recolour for the Inverted Vertigo. Three of the recolours are texture referencing recolours (i.e. they contain no texture of their own, just a "link" to the original (and now hidden) textures. They are much smaller this way). The one for It's Reaggea is a standard recolour - I liked it to much to let it go waste.

Of course the new recolours look different from the original posters, but I think they suit the Inverted Vertigo poster, which is supposed to be some music cover art.
I am also including a fix made by HugeLunatic for the mesh of the Inverted Vertigo poster which will flip all textures horizontally (i.e. the guys that were facing in one direction will face in the opposite direction. This is to make the direction they are facing similar to the original posters - it is optional and not necessary for the hiders or recolours to work.)

Please note that if you had recolours for the posters which are now hidden, they will have nowhere to show up any more, so only use the hiders if you do not mind this.

EP compatibility: the name of each zip and each file tells you which EPs are required - in this case, BG or UNI.

The hiders and the optional mesh fix go in your Downloads folder. Delete to remove.
Put the TR recolours in
Program files/HighestEP/TSData/Res/Catalog/Bins or
Program files/HighestEP/TSData/Res/Catalog/Skins (with the added benefit that they will have no CC star). The standard recolour could go in Downloads, but for the sake of simplicity, I just put them together with the TR recolours.

If you had any of the now-hidden posters in a lot before, they will not disappear.
Enjoy your cleaner catalogue!

Thanks to HugeLunatic for making the mesh fix.
