View Full Version : Adding another .dat TextFile?

07-14-2006, 09:33 PM
Hi all,

what do I have to do in order to add another .dat-file to the game?

I added some strings with the EAW Dat Editor 1.00 to the MasterTextFile_ENGLISH.DAT.

Of course theese strings will be deleted if the file is overwritten, like all mods seem to do. (At least the updates do so.)

So, my idea was to implement a special .dat-file ("fynbos.dat" or smth.) to the game, which would include only my addings; but I don't get sorted out, how to do that.

Anyone ever done that or at least seen a line that says
"load thatfile.dat" :doo1:
The differen language versions of the game load different .dat files, the german one for example is: MasterTextFile_GERMAN.DAT
So there must be something that tells the program what to look for, right?

Thanks, people.
