Right before i start, 1.) Please moderators dont lock this i need to know last time some one did and didnt even post a link to the other 'duplicate thread' 2.) Dont any one dare suggest wiki or relic forums because i have tried to suscribe but they wont activate the users 3.) Im on about the Attribute Editor btw :) Now, how would i go about creating a new race or simply a new squad? i tried to make a new squad for SM but it is all grey and wont let me change or add values or referances. Please help. Also how do i make these folders for every DoW and WA unit so i can make a mod and activate it in the game manager? Begging for help please!
As for making the folders for WA and DoW, saving the binaries from the AE creates the folders, but you have to have the folders set up right in the Pipeline.ini file. Also, each mod can only be for WA or DoW, not both. You can copy mods, rename them slightly and edit the .module file, but a single folder and a single .module won't show up in both games.
Thanks! that answers loads!! now i can make a mod! yay! im so happy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks :) Edit: right ok, i sorted out the pipeline. ini so it works with wxp (WA) but it doesnt show up in the game manager still please help again :(
I'm close, but just not there

Dude, could you try not to double post in the future? And also, I'm glad you worked that out.
On a side note, if you're creating new squads, try not to make them too overpowered - balance makes the game fun for everyone. But Relic has yet to fully discover that...
17 hours to 2 days ago, it won't let you edit your posts at that length of time. You've got a couple of hours max, IIRC.
As for making it show up in the game manager, make sure that your .module file (which is what the game manager reads) is set up for WA as well.
ooh...game module. heard of one of them before...never seen it... i accidently edited WXP and had to reinstall the game lol i just had a look for the module. but its no where to be found any ideas?
Edit: OMG!! i cant edit the post above this! Well any way i found the module. folder and i opened it in a compressed folder (if thats right?) but i cannot change it! Please help again IBBoard! You helped me loads thanks!
Compressed folder? Don't know what you're doing with a compressed folder. If you want to change anything in the Mod, you need to change it in the Mod Tools and save it, which puts it in the Mod's folder. If you want to edit the .module file then that's just a text file for any normal text editor.
Ive got it all sorted guys!! thank you all very much look out on filefront for my small SM mod and expect your names to be in the credits! :p
