I have gone around and tried to find tutorials on editing GC maps but have yet to find anything that helps me. I understand I need to use the .xml files but where are they located?? and how do I access them!? Any help would be greatly appreciated and I know it sounds dumb:uhoh: but thanks in advance :)
If you downloaded the map editor, then it created a mod folder. Look in mods\source\data for campaigns_singleplayer.xml for EAW, or Campaigns_underworld_GC.xml for FOC. Or find, and download the .Meg Extractor to extract the files for yourself from the config.meg
Well thanks, now that I found them I can't alter them for some reason. Whenever I open the Campaigns_Underworld_GC file it opens the internet to show me the contents which I am unable to alter in any way. I have not been able to find a very informative thread that really goes into making a GC map HELP:eek:
I want to make a full GC map with each group starting with only one planet (Coruscant: Empire, Yavin 4: Rebels, Hypori: Underworld) with nearly every other planet controlled by pirates and the like. I really need help with this.
get and xml editor, self explainable, then open the xml files and then edit the files
xml ediotor doesn't work well with foc
xml pad works fine for both eaw and foc can be found by googling xml pad
Open with notepad.
Ok I'am almost done the map but how do I load it so the game will put it on the GC map list??
HELP!!! I'm done my GC map but how do I get the game to load it??
Save the edited Campaigns_underworld_GC.XML in the game\data\xml folder. If it does not exist create it.
