howdy, I'm new here, but I more or less have modding all figured out. Though there's one problem I just encountered and can't figure out. I installed the blackhawk mod v. 4 from Jason Vanover and it gave the gla an airforce, including an mi-8 helicopter. Anyway, I thought it would be nice for china to have an mi-8, but for some reason, whenever I give china the ability to build the mi-8, the game won't start and I get the error screen. Now its not the helicopter's fault, it works fine for the gla and the US can build it too. Anyway, I found a way around it by allowing china to have the gla worker. so I get the gla worker for china, and then he builds the gla airfield, fine. But when I build an mi-8 from the airfield, the mi-8 appears, its power bar immediately drains to zero, and it crashes into the ground. does anyone have an idea why this is and what I can do to allow china to use this mi-8? p.s- this is old generals, not zh. thanks

Well you obviously don't have modding figured out if you can't do this. In the "factionunit.ini" find the helicopter and then look for a line under the "Design Parameters" that says "Side = GLA" and change that to "Side = China". This will disable the GLA's ability to build it though, so you will have to copy the whole code for the helicopter and then change the side info and the name of the unit. Then you will have to create new command button and command set entries, which are pretty easy.
