I've had funky behavior with scripted ships. Some of them are being possessed over by the GOD engine. Its happened so much even in a vanilla game (with Cycrow's cheat pack) that I've resorted to honest play for testing purposes.

Yes, I'm crazy. I play to test my game.

Other than the tfile command slot change, I dont know what else could be conflicting. As I've said, havent had time to properly test them.

dont you just hate RL 1.0b getting in the way? >_<

I did now the translation of the manual for command slot changing. I added it to "Part 3" of this manual, see the first page.

If the description is not clear enough, tell me. The handling of the change itself should also be possible for a beginner.

Because of the encountered problems (by Hangman111) I already sent Lucike a message. If anyone else has problems with the change of command slots, tell me.

@appricotslice
I won't change the command slots for alternate download. I'm doing the translation, while command slots are base functionallity. Don't know if this is a good solution, if there are multiple versions ... bug-hunting and so on.

If you like to do that, as you wrote in a personal message, please talk about it with Lucike himself. It's his script, not mine.

I've tried once to contact Lucike and never got a response.

EDIT:
Lucike's replied to my message. According to him, Saetan is supposedly to post on a solution.

Lucike and I are talking about a possible solution.

For my point, I see the problem in the "location based" reservations of slots. Next there will be french, russian or italian users which have conflicts with even new slots maybe. A international based list would be better but then again, slots are limited ...

Maybe we change the slots overall, maybe we change them for the english localization only, maybe we let do that by yourself like in the manual I translated today. We will see.

--- edit ---

Lucike changed the costum command slots. They will be updated in the next version of CODEA. For you which want/need to use them already, you can download them: 8014.zip ... just unpack the files inside the archive into your language directory ( ../t/.. ) of your X³:TC installation.

Hangman111 wrote:I changed a couple of them by editing the 8014-L044 file as suggested and using the 729 and 730 slots, and that solved the problem of strange missions appearing in the R-display (list of ships and commands). However, I now get messages from unknown that are blank when I ask to see the cute overviews of personnel costs. Neither do I get messages when ships are lost.
Do you use any mod/script which colors shipnames or something similar? Like that one from UniTrader?
Lucike think such a mod/script could cause your problem.

The problem would be caused by wrong color-/format-strings (X³:TC has two differend kinds of) in the messages.

Hi!

Thanks for looking into the problems I reported. I only use the following scripts/mods: Gazz compact cleaner, Apricotslice claim ship, Cycrow's plugin installer, Cycrow's improved boarding, Gazz' MARS, and Lucike's excellent CODEA, MODEA and Prospektor scripts, and I also have used Apricotslice's Easy Hub director script.

I still get strange ship commands in the R-list of ship commands (for the moment my two M6's say their command is "Beam up astronaut"), and just a blank message from "Unknown" when I try to see the "personnel costs" in the CODEA menu.

Hangman :)

Mhmm ... I don't know, but maybe it is because of a wrong edited, and so still conflicting language file? Try again with the new downloadable language file by Lucike himself. See the posting above.

@Saetan: Nice to see updates translated. :D But how about adding a link to the "CODEA Entwicklungsthema (de)"?

I had already overwritten my edited L044 (it didn't solve the problem) with the beta ..25 files: Using the new files in your link above did not change anything. :(

(I use Steam - and Steam seems to say that the version is 2.0, not 2.1 as the present version of CODEA seems to require. I don't know if this is just Steam's odd naming convension or a real problem, and whether it affects the problems I have described)

@Hangman111

Do you use MARS drones on the CODEA carrier? For a test you can disable the drones. I know MARS change the name of the carrier.

Turning the drones off in MARS did it - corvettes are now "Convoyed" and I am able to see the personell costs! (I actually turned them off in the ship I am flying - a Springblossom - rather than the carrier - which is OOS.)

Thanks! :) So I guess this is a MARS/CODEA interaction problem?

I think so. We will see. I want to talk to Gazz.
