05-28-2000, 06:17 PM
Hello again to all. I got a new computer and installed XWA and it's 2.02 update. I then grabbed the nessacary files and programs to begin adding ships to the game. I changed the shiplst.txt, spacecraft0.lst, spec, ect files I know how to do all of that stuff. I've done it before. Anyway, I tried BOTH MXvTED and the BinHexEdit program to edit the XWINGALLIANCE.exe file. any way, after everything is set up and all is said and done, I start up the game, I tried the shortcut, auto run and the EXE itself, but after the opening cutscene, the game crashes out to windows! if I restore all the altered files to their origional settings, everthing works, just no new ships! what gives. The d*mn thing use to work on my old comp!! PLEASE HELP!!!!

Hey, you know how to actually add ships? I tried to add the "TIE Phantom". Didn't work. I got BixHexEdit. Don't know how to use it, though. Can you give me the basics?

I tried adding a ship once. Game got messed up. Worse than a Pokémon game w/the MissingNo. or 'M glitch(es) (read: glitch to end all glitches). I'd backed everything up, so I didn't lose anything. And now, I'm against this OPT adding stuff. Do even one little thing wrong, and POOF! There goes your game...

Why is it that whenever someone says SOL I am always in trouble... whether it be Standards of Learning or (the other version). I'm always screwed.

Thats your lost realy. Believe me a lot of OPT's out there are much better than the once that come with the game and it isn't even that hard to install new OPT's.
