so...heres the thing, i'm not sure if its actually modding or not, but i would like some help or directions to help in regards to changing the values of my ships, units, bases, etc. i actually kinda want to devestate things and so i guess im looking to cheat the game...ive tried to mod the .xml files, ive tried turning them into .meg files and nothing is working...btw i have the gold edition of EaW, with FoC...don't know if that makes a difference...any help is appreciated

You don't have to pack files into .megs, just put edited files in [Game directory]/Data/Xml folder and run the game.

yes, but that's not going to help much... i've attatched a simple tutorial to help you get o your feet. also look at the master sticky thread in the modding section

heres the thing...i edit the values i want and save the xmls...but nothing happens. i extracted them from config.meg, made an xml folder and put all of the .xmls in it, and ran the game and nothing changed...

you have to substitute your changed values in the actual XML file for the game. xml editing is the same for FOC, but the tutorial is for EAW
