Hi, i am a rookie when it comes to installing ships into Armarda 2. I know how to do it, and i can get a ship in the game, (without the build icon, but who cares, i am a beginner!). I know how to do it manually without extracting, so i am trying to get the Excelsior B class ship into my game. I have modified the odf and the tech trees, so i can see and am able to build it in instant action, and i actually see it being built in the shipyard, but as soon as it finishes, and proceeds to come out, the game crashes, saying ''armarda2.exe has performed an illegal operation.

PLEASE I NEED HELP, what have i done wrong.

I have attached my files with the excelsior b, could anyone install it and take a look at what happens and see if it crashes and possibly figure out why?

I would be very greatful

Thanks

James

PS i donot claim to have made the excelsior b all rights and acknowledgements go to DAWN (http://www.armada2files.com/file.info?ID=5029)

Thanks Haryous i got it to work, but now the ship will not move!

Cool, thanks for the help guys, i fixed the problem, the ship can be created now, and the game doesn't crash, i redid the weapons in the odf to std ones, and that seems to have done it, i added the wireframe sprite lines to the global spr.

But now i have another problem.......:@

The ship WILL NOT MOVE!

How do i fix this

Thanks

James

oh dear, thats usually a problem with the physics file, i will attach the one i was going to send you anyway, i cant find the phys file referance anyway, if you want to do it yourself you need to change the "type9" phaser and the "type8" photon, even in game with out hte proper sprite editing the game wont work, here is my odf for you

i fixed the problem with the excelsior not moving, i changed the included odf in the fexcelb odf to a std one, like crusie3 or fcruise3 and it worked, it now moves,...

now all i need to do is learn how to make button icons, any help would be appreciated

Thanks

for your help
