I've been modding my game and testing after each addition. I recently added the norexan from ZeroHour putting each item in its respective folder. I also added rZHwarbird03 to the er_named in the odf-other folder. As soon as the map loads it crashes only on Romulan. After removing all the files (and I can think of no other thing I changed) the Romulans continue to crash after map load bar goes to full. I removed all entries to the norexan but any ideas what might cause this? I made no changes to the rom race odf and can't see any errors in the global gui or anything? Is this due to the Romulan starting units accessing a needed file from the start that might be the cause? I'm racking my brain.
Ok, I changed the rom.odf start units to only 1 construction ship (no base, no scout) and they still crash as the map load bar finishes. All other races work fine. I guess this really should be in the help forum if admins can move please.
Well, the AI seems to be able to play as the Romulans now but for some reason I can't. I don't think I've ever heard of the AI being able to be a race but not the player? I think my pc is possessed. :)
It's a semi known issue in Vanilla Ultimate. I didn't spot it until someone pointed it out, apparently it's a problem with the rom GUI. If you copy the contents of the fed one over to the rom file then apparently it works perfectly.
Thanks Freyr. I had finally seen that today after trolling the old posts in the help section but I was thinking that was fixed in the mod and a non issue now? I'll give it a shot tonite.
