Hey guys,

just changed the A-wing model by another model, just to test how it works. But unfortunatly it doesn´t seem to work very good. If game is started, A-wing can still be built, but all info on unit is missing, but model still is A-wing. Can anyone help me.

I followed part of the beginners tutorial on forum at everythingeaw. I have to say, unlike in the tutorial, I only have 1 .alo file. So no .dds, or .tga files. Since A-wing has no hardpoints, didnt change that file

I replaced the A-wing totaly, so in gameobjectfiles nothing had to be changed either (I suppose)

I have to say, the way it is explained in the tutorial chapter "XII: Dat file & mtd file", I dont really get what they mean. suppose this is where it is going wrong.

thx

Would you mind making a list of the issues you have with it? From what I'm getting you are missing: -text entries -icon -not using your model

I'm assuming by your post you have the A-Wing model in-game but are missing the description of the A-Wing when you try to build it, would I be right? If so you need to check the following attributes in the SQUADRON.XML file: TEXT_A_WING_SQUADRONTEXT_TOOLTIP_A_WING The first gives the name of the ship and the second it's description. You can find these in the Data\Text folder in the file MasterTextFile_ENGLISH.DAT. You can find a DAT editor on Flefront (http://empireatwar.filefront.com/file/DAT_editor_Text;98260). Hope this helps...
