I'm trying to install an MC 40 into my game using one of your guides, but it is launching vannilla FOC. Can you help????
You need a folder structure like this: Mod_Name/Data/ (The mod name CANNOT have spaces in it otherwise it won't work) Create a folder in 'Data' called 'XML'. Into the 'XML' folder, you put the XML files you modified/created.
Create a folder in 'Data' called 'Art', and in this folder create two more - 'Models' and 'Textures' (take a wild guess as to what goes in these) Create a folder in 'Data' called 'Text', in here you put your modified Mastertext file. Now you need to put the folder 'Mod_Name' into your 'Mods' folder. (If the 'Mods' folder doesnt exist, create it) If your modding the FOC expansion: 'Star Wars Empire at War Forces of Corruption\Mods' If your modding the original EAW: 'Star Wars Empire at War \GameData\Mods' (I think - I've never done one for the original EAW) Finally, you can either: create a shortcut (Complicated) or download the Mod launcher (Easy) http:// empireatwar.filefront.com/ fil...cher_Zip;96444 Some people have had trouble with the mod launcher not working. If this is the case with you, I'll try and show you how to do Modpaths or .bat files.
I have the structure already, i'm just wondering if the XML coding has gone kapput. all help grateful.
I've had to do all the XML's from scratch, can some one check them for me and tell me where I've gone wrong
Its probably not a mistake in your XMLs, otherwise the game would just crash at the splash screen.
Did you add your XMLs to the 'Gameobjectfiles' XML?
yep, all files input as per Lord X's guide. really stumped.
Then I can't think of anything else that would be wrong. If I do I'll let you know, sorry I couldn't be of more help.
ok, may have to start from scratch, unless someone can look over my xml's
This is my hardpoint xml

Do you have a separate hardpoint file for it (the code above seems that is the case)? And what all problems are you having with it?
EDIT - if it's the hardpoints you're having a problem with, make sure you put your hardpoint xml as an entry into this: Hardpointdatafiles.xml - for some reason they don't show up if you don't...
