Greetings, I have been putting together all the race mods and the Star Wars VS Star Trek mods and finally have all of them working and all the races working. For some reason once I added the Imperial and Rebel forces to my moded game the tool tips don't want to show I need to know what files I need to re-edit to fix this issue! I know it has something to do with the CFG files in the MISC folder. Any deeper explaination would be great! I am practicing making textures and 3D models once I become good at it I will assist in modding projects I am a familirization with the game and know the basics of all the files! I know how to modify the odf's, modifiy the AI's for the computer to build modded ships. Tech files but the only thing I can't figure out is the tool tips and why its not showing! Any assistance would be great! Thanks!

There is a bunch of stuff in "Dynamic_Localized_Strings.h" which is in the root folder which covers tooltips. I would imagine you would need to copy the stuff out of the Star Wars file into the one in your installation.

That said, I am a texture artist and gamer. My knowledge of how the rest of the game works is somewhat minimal and your probably better off waiting until someone else either confirms this unless you want to check it out yourself.

If yu want, you can change the actual odf's tooltips's which will also work. What game are you referring to here, 1 or 2?

Actually figured it out! It seemed to be a button I hit that turned off the tool tip cause now all a sudden there working the dynamic file I did however go through and nothing was there but the tool tips were listed in the ODFs so thanks for the assistance and this is reference to Armada 2
