Hi Mark! I really like your editor and have been using it for a long time now. Great job! I have a question about the new version: How do the new functions "Theater" and "Transport Category" work?

Dumb question, but does it matter where you install the editor? It won't work, I try to open an efx file, and it gets unexpected errors? I have the latest framework 4 and updates, win xp pro SP3.

I just got this game, and am a modder of other games, would be interested in inspecting the files of this one!!

Hi Warhorse,

No, it shouldn't matter at all, as long as all the files inside the ZIP are placed in the same directory it can go anywhere. Are you able to elaborate on the types of errors that you are are seeing? It might help see if it's a problem with the app or the framework or something else.

Cheers

Mark

Hi, I am using mgarnett's unit editor. I am able to change attributes and create new units, however when I go in the game none of the changes or nthe new units are available. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers,

Hi Mark , I want to thank you for creating this great editor tool but I'm having a problem with the efx part. I place a new unit icon and it comes out
OK on game but when I add entry into efx file whether by editor or even hand type entry looks OK but when I start game unit is there but all units on screen have no movement sound and when you fire at enemy unit it sounds like a small cannon.When I take out my entry in efx file and try game my unit is there silent and all other units are back at correct mvmt/fire sounds.I've tried everything 10 times over with same bad results including reinstall of game twice.My efx file always refuses my entry. If you have any clue what's going on please let me know Thank You.

Hi Guys,

My apologies for not responding sooner. I've had very little time lately to devote to this, but things have now changed and I can get back into it. Again, sorry for the delay.

Cheers

Mark

Hi koopa,

Are you sure you are committing the unit back to the unit file? To make sure a user couldn't accidentally change a unit's attributes, I made it so that when you change the attributes, you need to press the commit the button. This is almost like an "are you sure" step.

Once you press commit, then the amended values are written into your unit file overwriting the previous values.

Cheers

Mark

Hi Mike,

Are you able to press the "Details" button in that error dialog and cut and past the contents into a message so I can see what it says?

Cheers

Mark

Thanks!

I'm working through a proof of concept at the moment with a visual campaign tree designer, something like a flow chart approach. I think this would make the understanding campaign trees much easier as well as allow you to easily mix and match things as you go.

Not sure how it will work out in the end, but I would like to enable people to drag scenario "boxes" create links to and from scenario boxes and delete and mix and match as they want and then have it all neatly written back to a campaign data file.

Cheers

Mark

Hi, Mark, thank you for creating the editor.
I have a problem though, it won't load anything i select as units or countries, it just remains blank.

I have the original, bought and updated.

Thank you,
Mircea
