Question

when you edit the npcs.cfg and make a new .pk2 should the original npcs.cfg remain in the assets0.pk3 or does it matter?

yes you should never remove anything from the assests .pk3s, unless you want to severly damage you game

whenever you edit system files, it is better to move the edited one into you mod folder; cuz anything in the base folder affects how the game is run all the time; and with multiples of the same file, it reverts back to the default one in the assests paks

just rightclick on it, rename, then take off the .txt extension

it will say, if you change the extension the file may be unusable blah blah winblows always bitches, just click yes

Hey thanks for you help. I finally got it to work using emon's tut. I was wondering if I wanted to give the trainer tavion's Ai is it nessecary to name him Tavion Jeditrainer such as in the Reborn Stormtrooper example. Also I was wondering is it possible to change the file so that the stormtrooper would inherit the fighting ai but keep the original voice. I believe it's something like this.

send Reborn
sendcombat Reborn
sendJedi Reborn

would I leave the first make the first line send, send stormtrooper instead to do this-maybe?

And one last question If I do another do, can both folders be inside the base inside that same base/models/players folder which I extracted the original stormtrooper model folder to.

any customizations should not be in the base folder, besides maybe just for quick testing

any customizations should be placed into your modname directory

Incidentally, if you add any NPCs and create a new modified npcs.cfg, you SHOULD NOT release it as a regular map. It needs to be released as a mod only.

If you add new NPCs (with new .npc files, I think it is), then you can.


There are three things that I paricularly hate: kids, animals, and women with attitudes.

Well I figured I try it like this since I couldn't get a .npc file created properly-or atleast I don't think I am. So is this why he is a stormtrooper instead of a trainer?
