Im not exactly sure why this wont work for you. I dont have these ships, however there are usually some common problems with the ships:

Torpedo Sound --------------- Go into Scripts/Tactical/Projectiles folder and find the torpedo that is used for the ship. Open up the .py file using notepad or wordpad and look at the sound that is used. below is an example taken from p81's klingon torpedo

def GetLaunchSound(): return("Klingon Torpedo")

The words Klingon Torpedo do no correspond to the actual .wav file. They refer to a script that can be found in the following folder,

"cripts\Custom\Autoload"

which loads new sounds into the game. If you dont want to add a new sound, or you want to use the standard klingon torpedo sound, then just type "Klingon Torpedo" into this part of the torpedo .py file. (MAKE SURE YOU DELETE THE .pyc FILE THAT RELATES TO THE TORPEDO YOU ARE MODIFYING)

Once this is done it should cause the torpedo to have a standard klingon firing sound. MAKE A BACKUP OF THE TORPEDO FILE FIRST INCASE SOMETHING GOES WRONG!

Icons ----- Look in this folder "data\Icons\Ships" if you dont see an icon that matches the ship file then that explains why it doesnt work. In order to get one you either need to make one yourself or find one on the net. Sorry I cant be of more help to you just yet, im downloading a 20mb file on a 56k which means I have to close all other windows at once.

I'll post again later. If you need more help just ask.

Thanks alot Dragon...i got all the sounds working and now i finally know how to change sounds. i'v done slight scripting to fix the torps on the battlebird..but never with sounds. about the vorath icons...there is a Vorath.tga in the data/icons/ships folder like every other ship...but there is also a vorath bitmap image. could that be causing it?? maybe i should delete the bitmap image?

Thanks again for your help with the torp sound.
