Hey all, I'm having trouble with the XML editor, it says that there is a hyphen issue in the GamesConstants.XML file and such. But all of what I really want to do is switch the Acclamator to the Tartan Patrol Cruiser slot (remove it's hardpoints and change the verbal announcement so it matches) and put the Venator Star Cruiser in where the Acclamator was with the exact same hardpoints as the Acclamator with appropirate verbal announcement. No major changes but I would think it more appropriate. It wouldn't change the original game balance as does most mods I've tried (ie. Venator V. ISD mod). Many thanks for any help!

hardpoints are attached to bones in a model, giving the venator the hardpoints from the acclamator will cause problems.

you'd have to open up Hardpoints.xml and look up acclamator and venator

KK, On the Acclamator/Venator deal, I think I could just reduce the power of the hardpoints on the Venator instead. But what troubles me is that I still can't get my XML editor from filefront to work, it still gives me the "hyphen cannot lead a comment" error and won't start up. I can look at all of the XML's and see what needs changing but my program won't let me do any of it. And I need time to experiment with it LOL. Thanks again for any help.
