I'm not sure why this is happening, when I run the vanilla/unmodded version of EAW Palpatine's model and force lighning is perfect. But if I MODPATH or mod the normal 'Data' folder and add textures my palpatine model and his force lightning do not work, which makes the Bothawui mission of the campaign to freeze as the model is not there to torture the traitors. I've tried to change the model to Vader (which is very confusing when they're both on the map), this works in Skirmish and GC but not on the Bothawui mission.
I'm sure it's something in the Shaders/Textures folder that is doing it, but I'm not knowledge enough on the models to know.
Has this happened to anyone else? Or does someone know how it can be fixed?
Welcome dude. What are you going to modify/touch?
let me guess force rape? do you have ay mods? allot of people get a glitch with palpatine and the bothawaui mission
I have never hjad problem with that. I love killing that bastards bothans traitors!!
Sorry, been away for a while.
My specs are:
AMD Athlon XP 2500+ 1.83 GHz 512 RAM and I got a NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200
So not the best specs in the world, but it's not a bad lot and the game runs nice and smooth.
I am not sure what mods i've got in my normal Empire At War data folder, as I modded that before 1.04 was out when we could use MODPATH. So the model is visible when the game is unmodded, but otherwise, especially when i'm running a mod, which I have many of, but it is not visible on all of them.
But I think it's the model file of Palpatine but there's nothing in my texture or shader folders that's interfering with the Palpatine model, but I think when I put new things in there to add units to the normal game before we could MODPATH.
They are: In the Model folder Ei_Commando (Storm Commando files) EI_DJ (All the necessary Dark Jedi files) Ei_Sniper (Storm Sniper?)
And in the Textures folder
Mt_commandbar Ec_Bike Ec_Sandtrooper Ei_DJ Ei_Pathfinder Ri_Pad
It's sad that I've got used to not using Palpatine! As he is the best and as The_Sith_Lord said bothans need to die if they betray the empire!
I know I could get rid of all the mods that are in the main EAW folder, but that doesn't explain why the model of Palpatine is vanishing.
Sorry for the delay but thanks for all the replies.
He he. The bothans deserve death!!!! All of them!! However. Have you tried to eliminatr that folders? I mean to have a clean copy of the game?
I will now, although it's half 4 in the morning and i've had no sleep, oops But a good bit of secret bacta and i'll be refreshed! (and maybe some death sticks) But i'll try that, as any little XML tweaks I can do won't take long if I want them. Then i'll try a mod with MODPATH and see if the model is fixed. I apologise before hand if it does fix itself, but I'm obviously annoyed that it's quite hard to see why this is happening!
Just complete re-installed the game and still no luck on the model of Palpatine
Get a new comp,but be careful,if your specs are to good that will hurt it
