I followed the provided instructions and started to mod in the AE when I went to run the mod to see how it looked so far it failed to load. It does show up in WA Game Manager but it does not load, does anyone have any ideas?

Any error messages? and maybe you should post your warnings log as well.

well, I found the problem. I was trying to figure out how to change unit names in game. I renamed some lua files and it did not like it. Does anyone know how to change names ie. scouts to something else. also I need to know how to change the text that explains each unit when you put your mouse over the icon or the unit.

Change this in the luas via the help text list: GameData["squad_ui_ext"]["ui_info"]["help_text_list"]["text_01"] = "$97812" GameData["squad_ui_ext"]["ui_info"]["help_text_list"]["text_02"] = "$97813" GameData["squad_ui_ext"]["ui_info"]["help_text_list"]["text_03"] = "$97814" GameData["squad_ui_ext"]["ui_info"]["help_text_list"]["text_04"] = "$97815" GameData["squad_ui_ext"]["ui_info"]["help_text_list"]["text_05"] = "$97816" GameData["squad_ui_ext"]["ui_info"]["icon_name"] = "eldar_icons/farseer_icon" GameData["squad_ui_ext"]["ui_info"]["screen_name_id"] = "$97810" Simply replace the text at the end to say what you want i.e. change "$97810" to "Farseer of Khaine" Text_01 to Text_05 are the description lines for the unit. Just have a play with them. A better way again of doing it is to change the entries in your Locale\English\ucs file but if its for your own use the first way is probably easier and you can always change the ucs file if you ever decide to release it to the public. Just have fun with it. :)
