I'm having some strange problems with the equipment editor (v 1.2) and was hoping that someone could help me out. I am trying to create an East-front-only equipment file but am encountering the problems described below. As base, I've tried using the original equipment file and two different user-created WWII files (WWII 2.0 and SWWDB), all with the same result.
I have created scenario called scenarioname , then created a subfolder in the graphics folder with the same name and copied the equipment file to that subfolder and gave the equipment file the same name. However, if I make any significant changes to the equipment file (for instance, delete nodes from the tree (helicopters, etc), when I try to create units in the TOAW III scenario editor, the force editor seems to be using a hybrid equipment file which includes my revised equipment file and the original equipment file. For instance, the "Tanks" category is repeated twice, once with my revised version and once with the original database, or "Helicopters" are reinserted, etc.
I can't really determine whether the equipment editor is somehow screwing up my revised equipment files, or if the force editor is somehow looking at two equipment files instead of one (which seems unlikely).
send me the .EQP I'll have a look at it. I would use one scenario with an already modified .eqp and rename it, as a kind of dummy scenario with it's own equipment file.
