OK,

-I edited one of the don't use me slots in the shiplist like the others.

-Added a new flightmodels line in the SPACECRAFTO.lst

-put the .OPT file in the FLIGHTMODELS dir.

But I still can't get the ship to actually fly, I see it listed in the skirmish fighters list, but if I try to fly it the game crashes to desktop! I also tried to fly something else and put the new ship to AI, but it doesn't show up once in mission! What am I doing wrong!?

I haven't done this myself yet, either, as the need hasn't arisen. However, each slot has a pointer. Make sure the slot you configured for your new craft actually points to the correct opt in the FM directory. MXvTed is a nice tool to use, with it's interface. BinHexEdit is more for advanced users who know what their doing.

Hi, thanks for answering my post. I don't have MXVTED, and I can't seem to find it anywhere on the various sites. I DON"T know what I'm doing so I don't want to mess with the BinHex thingy. Can you tell me where to get MXVTED or perhaps e-mail the program to me please?
