Alrght, I have been coding since EAW came out and - if nothing else - I KNOW how to code. I took a 'course' on coding for FOC and know exactly how it works. Notepad is my tool of choice and I use it whenever I have to mess with any XML files.

However, I have been trying to add ONE new unit to FOC for a whole day now. I have everything coded properly - EAW shows that to be true and a friend of mine says its fine as well. In fact the problem only seems to show whenever I EDIT one of the XML files that came with FOC.

I tried editing one letter inside a basic XML file and BOOM... it blew up in my face. Dropped me to the desktop with the standard 'program has crashed' error message. Now do I need a special type of XML editor? Will Notepad no longer cut it or something? Because I am at my WITS end and it STILL won't work. :Puzzled:

Never mind, I found the problem - I wasn't using Notepad I was using another program by mistake... hey don't look at me that way it was late :( :p

Anyway, everything's working now and I'm adding millions of new units just like I wanted. Back to business then.
