Hi every1, need help.......again! :confused: have editted my dominion ult (non .exe), and changed a number of items in the ship and station and specials research build list, when playn as the dominion it works perfectly now! but my prob is i cant play against them as the load bar crashes at the end of the load sequence (a familiar site now), i editted all 5 files usin my techtree as reference, and it still crashes. next i copied the klingon 1s and renamed them accordingly and individially edit each entry to match the dominion odf files, and guess what...yes it crashed at the end of the load sequence! Is there any tool that can help me edit the files or another way i can create them? cheers for any assistance and remember VICTORY IS ASSIMILATION lol!!!
Nope. Who'd want tools to create AIP's? Notepad is your friend. :)
Blank your AIP (back it up first!) and start with a couple of lines (ie; starbase -> shipyard ). That allows you to be 100% certain that your AIP is actually the problem. If the AIP is the problem, a crash is likely caused by the same errors you have in ODF's, spelling errors etc.
When you have isolated the AIP that's causing the crash, post it here and i'll tell you what you've done wrong.
hi freyr, ok il try it again. did it that way before and it didnt work (hence the copying of klingon ai files), maybe a year later of basic moddn mite of taught me sumfin LOL, HOPEFULLY, well here goes....
its OK now i sorted the prob wiv the converted klingon ai files now, i had an entry that no longer existed as a ships odf file name!
where there was a ksuper, i hadnt a dsuper! in the end a silly mistake to make. but sorted now, didnt get round to startn ai files from scratch coz of the footy!
It's better to write all of your AIP's from scratch, they won't play even semi decently if the build list is just copied from another race.
well, got the copied klingon AI workn, but it crashed durin the ship upgrade build field, so i thot ok lets make 1 from scratch and added 1 entry at a time and tryed it and everything was fine till the 2nd set of ship upgrades then it crashed again (history repeatn its self lol). thot it mite be a pod odf error so i played as the dominion and it research all the upgrade stations upgrades? so cant work out what crashed the game when usin the klingon copies or my own set of ai files i started from scratch????? any suggestions evrybody...
more specifically, the game ctd's when it researches the level 3 (weapons) ship upgrades.
What is the odf name of your level 3 weapons upgrade?
weapon = "dompod21", shield = "dompod22", sensor = "dompod23", engine = "dompod24" and life support is "dompod25"
Could you post the AIP please? Just copy and paste the entire file into a forum post inside [spoiler ] brackets.
