in Vanilla EaW fighter do not have shields. However, every body knows how usefull it is for a fighter (like the Xwing) to survife at space battle. Is it possible to modify this, or has it already been tried?

In vanilla EaW as you say it, fighters that have shields have them.

I don't know if you ment they are too weak or something, but they do have shields, except for the TIE series.

To edit these it's a simple open the SPACEUNITSFIGHTERS.xml and editing their shield values.
And if you wish to add shields to the TIE's it's just as simple.

All you need to edit these files are the standard Notebook program that follows all Windows systems.

There are programs out there that are better suited for it, like colorcoding the different codes and values to better see what's the code and what's the value, but Notebook is more than enough really.

They already have shields? why can't I see them. Would be usefull if I could see when my Ywing shield are sharged or drained

I'm using Microsoft Visual Web Developer 2005 for editing XML files, is that good enough?

Yes look in the Fighters xml you just can't tell by looking at them, but look when they get hit. the shields will glow.

Yeah, that's the same I'm using Sebastiaan, and it is more than good enough ... atleast for me. :)

Makes it alot easier to seperate the codes and values.
