Alright, looking for some help. Please save the flaming for later, I just don't have months to look through 50,000 posts for the answers just now.

I've extracted and edited the XML files to change some unit attribs (cost, build time, shields, health etc etc). Now that I've done all this, where the heck to I put the XML files so the game will read them?

I've tried placing them into the \game\gamedata folder, with no luck. Do they need to be in sub folders? Do they need to be added back into the config.meg file?

Do I need to restart the campaign?

I've done some modding on X3, so I'm not a total newb, but I'm baffled right now by this.

they need to go into gamedata/data/XML you have to create the XML folder in data though.

just a quick note, modding EAW is completely different from X3 and much more simple

Do I need the folders "Ai", "Enum" or the "AnimationsFxmaps.txt" in the new XML folder, or only the XML files?

Thanks in advance

You can place those in there too. It will only mod the UI intelligence though on how it behaves to you in game. So you need to actually mod those files and make changes from the default other wise its not worth placing them in the xml file.

Hummmm,

Put all the files (including the AI and Enum folders) into the GameData/Data/XML folder, but they don't seem to "import" into the game, and when I exit the game, they're gone from the XML folder like they were never there....

Totally confused. X3 was a pain the arse, but once you put the files in the right place, they didn't just walk out on you like some $2 hooker.... :uhm:

Anyone got any ideas? Do I need to restart the campaign for the files to take effect? Do I need to put the files somewhere else, or re-pack them into the config.meg file? Do I delete the config.meg?

Please help, this is becoming a royal pain.

you cant play a saved game that didnt have the mod in it originally, you have to start completley new games.
