A few questions.

Postby Zeneth » Mon Dec 26, 2005 12:41 pm


I have been snooping about in mission.lvl recently but as of yet have been unable to alter anything significant without causing a crash. I have a few questions...

Firstly, regarding the length markers, where exactly are they? I know there are short tags preceeding/terminating name references, i.e 040E000000rep_hero_yoda , which seem to correspond to the length of the name. Are they the only ones or do they precede whole sections as well?

Secondly, how would I go about mixing sides? Specifically, I wanted to change the jedi_master_03 hero from the clones/jedi CTF coruscant mod to rep_hero_yoda. I tried this the obvious way, and the game doesn't crash, but I am never given the option to play Yoda. Likewise, if I replace one of the other units with Yoda, they just disappear off the selection screen.

And lastly, I noticed something interesting in jed.lvl. There seem to be entries for "jed_inf_sith", which I presume is some kind of basic unit or model or something (all the jedi units reference "jed_inf_jedi"), but no actual unit that uses it. I tried changing one of the jed_inf_jedi to jed_inf_sith, but that provoked a crash. Perhaps they were planning to add a non-hero jedi/sith battle but never got around to it?

DFYX has posted the names of the sections whose sizes must be changed to allow the insertion of additonal bytes. You'll find them in this thread...
