Working a few on my Modern warfare Academy mod, I tried to change some names units in lang_eng db file directly with stringbaseditor, and it worked fine (changed Mechanized in "Air cavalry" (heliported troops), and will do some others.

I have seen, Doom that in other thread in the forum, you said that you use excel to edit texts in land_eng csv file and after that, you open this lang_eng csv with stringbaseditor to convert it in db file. Why do you that, please, if the modifications may be made directly in db file with stringeditor, as I did ? Is it a simple way to avoid some manipulation errors in the replacing, or is it something that MUST be done ? To work directly with stringbaseeditor is very usefull and quick, and I had no problem later in game after thse modifications.

It can be done directly there, but the string editor is sorting the strings alphabetically

Ok, thanks. I founded also one good reason to use csv file : more faster when you have some 34 names to change in the right column of the file, one click is needed in excel, 34 in string : the choice is easy to do (replaced "Air strike" by "Explosive strike", because now, Missiles, attack helicos and jet tactical bombers have each separate country and graphs, for one unic sound : exceptionnel sound I founded on the web, that simulate at the sametime a jet fighter, a missile and a final explosion impact : perfect to be used as air strike sound : when used by missiles or helicos, the sound look likes a missile lunched + explosion ; when used by jet air fight, the sound lools like a jet atack + explosion missile or bom (but better would be to have different sounds for each separate country. One day, perhaps )
