Universal Wares Transfer

Post by Sandtrooper » Tue, 18. Aug 15, 22:26

After my HDD failed years ago (taking my games and backup saves with it), I've recently returned to this game - starting from the very beginning - though sadly, the game isn't as player-friendly with this Win7-64 as it was with my old XP 32 machine!

Anyway, firstly, my apologies if this should be in the 'Scripts' section but, when clicking [Reply] to the UWT thread, I got a redirection to the main page (preceded by a message that was too momentary to be read (even when I was ready with my camera to try capturing it)!

Here's what happens when trying to use the Universal Wares Transfer on ships docked at same station (or rather doesn't but should...)

With two other (owned) ships in same station, I select the ship command found in 'Other' IIRC. It's in green ink by the way. I hear the female voice "Command accepted" but no GUI appears. I read in the thread I wanted to post a reply in that if not working, I should leave the station/be in flight and hit [Enter] on the Numeric pad to "...reset the Mission Director" which was meant to be a button near the bottom (though no mention of which menu it was in). The two ships are one I bought and one I've captured. NB: I'm in a separate ship altogether (although I would like to acquire what the 'donor' ship has).

Unaware of what was already in my X3 root, I assumed I lacked the Mission Director and so, downloaded it via the link on that thread (surprised it still worked after discovering so many Xai-Corp links I wanted are dead but, anyway...) It appeared that I already have a 'Director' folder in my X3 root - is this due to the 2.5 patch, Bonus Pack or Extended Mod?

Investigating the contents, it contradicted the thread which said "...has no missions in it" - mine has a 'Valhalla' in there but, no idea what that is nor am I going to touch it for fear of wrecking/crashing the game - that's happened enough already with running on this Win7 machine (not crashed yet in XP SP3 mode though).

So, how do I get the UWT to work?

Am using -
X3 Reunion (XP SP3 compatibility)
Patched to 2.5
Bonus Pack
'Xtended' Modification
CryCrow's Script thingy 2.12 (had to disable a few scripts I wanted though due to crashing).

Also installed (but not used) = [Non-Commercial] X3pm Script Packager V2.10 - is this for those who have the ability to create scripts? In which case, can I un-install this from the PC altogether?
Win7 64

After much hair loss, I fear sanity and will to live are the next likely casualties...

Any help would free-up space at my local sanitorium!

By the way - am I one of the lucky few who has actually managed to get the HAT on his Saitek X-45 to work the POV? Hmm, now that I've gone and stated that of course, I've an idea what my next post will be!

**merged with respective script thread**


As for not being able to reply to this topic, see [FAQ] When I try to post in the forum or to edit my profile, I get redirected to the forum index page. What should I do?

UPDATE:

Discovered purely by accident that, it works (albeit erratically) if changing player name to 'Thereshallbewings' but, as I said - erratic/repeated attempts to get it to function - even then, it's via the 'incoming messages' to access it.

Xai-Corp.net was offline for a couple of days, but thanks to moggy2 the site is up and running again. :) So I would suggest checking the threads of the scripts you wanted again and test if the download links work now. There's also usually a chance that someone reuploaded the script on a different hoster already, so it's worth to check the last few pages/posts of each topic.

Alternatively, lots of X3R scripts are also backuped on xdownloads.
