From: My Own Private Hell
OK, I've looked at the latest patch's gametext file and there were no changes, but it seems that installing the new patch after you have installed the Picard Total Conversion mod will result in the gametext.txt file being overwritten. This is because there were changes to the file since the last official patch many moons ago.
So to fix this, you can simply download the attached file and place it in your Distant Worlds folder. Backup the existing file if you want to use it again. Select 'yes' to overwrite the existing file.
Or, if you already have the Total Conversion mod downloaded, you can use the gametext.txt file from that. There are no differences.
Thats what I didn't do
But heres what I did do (In order)
A.The game was patched to 188.8.131.52
B.Installed Star Trek - The Picard Era mod
C.Installed the Picard Era Total Conversion V1.0.2 (DW original gametext.txt was copied over with the gametext.txt from that zip)
Im sorry I didnt see post #646, unless im bored I never really look at the previous posts as some are moons old
It looks like a problem with the gametext.txt file then? Not a gamebreaker but hope that pointing it out will help you to fix the mod.
As for the red alert, I rarely go above normal speed so it doesnt go off to often, even later on for me, I cut it down to just one near full volume klaxxon(?) and a second one at half volume to fade so that it would 'nest' better with the other sounds.
Ive compared the text file from #646 with the one from the total conversion zip and heres what differs:
(the one in desktop is the one from #646 and the other is in the DW game folder, from the total conversion zip)
