Just backtrack wha you did, it's always good to make a backup of the stock file you wish to use / edit, then save it every now and then until you complete, if it doesn't work, you can go back to a specific part than you messed up on and correct it!

yeah backups are a very good idea. trust i know... i've do what you've done every now and then, only with odfs (if these don't work the game crashes) but i've learnt to test after each change, that way i know what has gone wrong.

Thats good (although i don't back up .odf files, there small enough to start over if you really loose yourself in them), howeve, i don't personally check after every change, doing so (for me) gets tedious! I believe there is an .odf checker up on A2files somewhere, don't know how it works as i like to check things by hand rather than have a programm run through and end up cocking up what i've done, but it may be of good use!

there's an odf writer but not a checker. http://armada2.filefront.com/file/ODF_Editor;6753 course you might of thought about the odf Packer. http://armada2.filefront.com/file/ODF_Packer;3188

One thing you can do is to right click and hold the button down then scroll down any folder to highlite all files. Then select "properties" and remove the "read only" classification. It's is much easier than attempting to change files one at a time. I have a full, standard A2 set up on my D drive so I have access to all the non-modified files if I change something that doesn't work or I don't like. Might help.... Flashs_Ship_movie.gif

don't need to do that, just rick click on a blank bit of the screen click properites and it sets the folder properties not the individual files properties.
