I had followed the instructions to the letter, and yet, there seems to be a problem as it crashed when I enter the Instant action menu. My guess is that somehow, I screwed the amount of race and possibly replaced species 8472... Still, I don't know. Can anyone help?

You need to give a tad more detail that, before anyone can help you, may I also recomend reading the big book of modding.

MY POINT is that there ARE no more details. I just read the instructions, followed them, understanding WHAT to do. I only gave GUESSES about the possible problem. This is NOT an isolated case.

Hi, until now I hadnot try to install the new race but I know how to edit the stock files:

The races.odf has to look like:

numberOfRaces = 9 race0 = "borg.odf" race1 = "fed.odf" race2 = "kling.odf" race3 = "rom.odf" race4 = "card.odf" race5 = "fer.odf" race6 = "species8472.odf" race7 = "................." // this one is 'uninhabited' for planets race8 = "norace.odf"

for the stock Armada2 game. The dots at race7 has to be replaced with the name of the shivan race odf

in that file one line has to say:

// Instant action slot, negative means not playable instantActionSlot = 6

As far as I know that are the things you had to change in the game files. I hope that helps a bit.

Sorry not "shivan", has to be "Forerunner". My fault.

But of course!!! I'll try to see if what I think of works...

Aha... I siriously recommend you to update the readme and post the update possibly by news or as an update to the mod(after all, without good instructions, it's like a crash bug - works, or doesn't. Otherwise it works fantasticly. And MAN that moniter is even WORSE than the one I encounterd in Halo 1(if you get me ;))

I posted a link to here in the comments section, so hopefully that will help. If it turns out people aren't reading that, I'll ask Joel to update the review with the link at the bottom so people will definetly see it ;)
