I star EAW, It's gets to the EAW logo then just crashes. It was working last night and all Ive done is add a ship to the game. the xml seems fine, then only error I've got is on the hardpoints.xml which dates back weeks, when the game was working.
I didn't make it!
Check other xmls and repair your eaw. To do that, just "explore" the EAW CD while it's in and repair it.[hint hint go to "my computer"]
Turns out the error that I thought dated back to when I added the SSD turns out to be the ship
Solved. The darn Internenet explorer said the error was in the SSD'S Harpoint section at the bottom of Hardpoints.xml, but it was really in the top entry for the Mon calamari wingless, so I thought the error was old!!! I am really anoyed, Because of it I have wasted my Saturday!!!
Thanks for your advice CloneCommander501
