Using this software means you agree with the disclaimer at the end of this document.

MAKE BACKUP OF YOUR FILES BEFORE USING THE SOFTWARE!!!

INSTALLATION
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
READ CAREFULLY SINCE THIS SECTION HAS CHANGED SINCE 0.3.

STEP 1 - EXTRACTING EDITOR42

1.1 - Create a directory where you will put Editor42 program (for instance c:\editor42\)

1.2 - Uncompress the Editor42 archive you downloaded into this directory

NOTE:
The provided init.con is a configuration file used by the editor, it must be in
the same directory as the editor itself. Do not use version 0.2 init.con.

NOTE:
Provided library directory must be a subdirectory of editor42.exe directory.

STEP 2 - EXTRACTING THE RFAs

Editor42 won't read the RFA, so you need to extract them yourself.

2.1 - Create a directory where you will put your extracted content.
The location and name can be anything. In this section I will use
c:\bfdev\ as a reference.

2.2 - Create the following directories within the base directory.
c:\bfdev\bf1942\levels\
c:\bfdev\objects\
c:\bfdev\standardMesh\
c:\bfdev\texture\

2.3 - Extract the OBJECTS.RFA file included with the game and mods into
c:\bfdev\objects\
(With RFAExtractor, you will have to specify c:\bfdev\objects\)

2.3 - Extract the STANDARDMESH.RFA file included with the game and mods into
c:\bfdev\standardMesh\
(With RFAExtractor, you will have to specify c:\bfdev\standardMesh\)

2.4 - Extract the TEXTURE.RFA file included with the game and mods into
c:\bfdev\standardMesh\
(With RFAExtractor, you will have to specify c:\bfdev\texture\)

2.5 - Extract the needed levels' RFA file included with the game and mods into
c:\bfdev\bf1942\levels\my_level_name\
(With RFAExtractor, you will have to specify c:\bfdev\)

2.6 - If you want to display trees, first convert the .TM into .SM using 3dMax
and then put tham all in c:\bfdev\standardMesh\ . Don't forget the shaders too.

NOTE:
Objects, texture and standard meshes need to be EXTRACTED for Edito42
to display them correctly, else it will use default box model and texture.

STEP 3 - RUNNING AND CONFIGURING EDITOR42

3.1 - The first time Editor42 runs, it will ask for several directories.
This dialog window is exactly the same as the one located at File->Directories menu.

3.2 - If your directory structure is as above, the ONLY directory you need to set
is the BASE directory. Change it accordingly. With the exameple above it should be
c:\bfdev\

3.3 - Leave the other values as is. Keep the $basePath tokens there! Unless you know what you doing. 3.4 - You can always change these directories at a later time in File->Directories menu. 3.5 - Open your level by clicking the yellow folder icon on the top of screen. A windows should appear with a list containing levels. If the list is empty, double check your level directory and make sure your levels are EXTRACTED. NOTE: Keep the$basePath tokens. The EDITOR will replace them automatically.
