hi people, i recently downloaded ACM2.4 and i decided to add my own hero unit to it. all i did was attempt to replace the Aayla Secura hero unit with a reskinned Mara Jade unit for the rebel side. i removed all the references to aayla in the mod and replaced her with my custom hero unit. i didn't want the unit to replace the Mara Jade already in the mod, so i gave my unit a new name, along with a new icon, new text entries in the encyclopedia, and changed the lightsaber color to blue. i believe i did everything correctly, including editing the XML files. (and the model shows up correctly in the ALOviewer)
however, once i was all done, i tried starting up the game but got a syntax error in the groundcompaniesrebel.xml file at the loading splash screen. i fixed the error in the xml, but now when i launch the game, it sits for a moment or two at the splash screen again, and then i get an error about a exception. not sure what's causing it but when i remove my groundcompaniesrebel.xml file and put it elsewhere, the game loads fine (but obviously it will be missing a big chunk of the rebel units)
anyone know what the problem is? i'm assuming it has something to do with the xml file.
never mind, i think i fixed it, there were some xml files and text entries that i hadn't done enough editing to, plus i had to rename the .alo file for the model. the game runs fine now, but i have yet to see if the hero unit i made actually shows up yet. will update this topic once i know
