Cheat package

Post by shanjoo » Mon, 24. Apr 17, 18:14

whenever I try to download and open your mod(as a zip file), I get a popup notice saying it don't recognize it as a valid archive.
do you have it available for spk download?

Both downloads linked in the opening post are already spk files. If your browser tries to save them as a zip file, then that's the problem you have to look into.

did you try to download and open via the browser ?

or did it happen just be clicking on the link ?

i did set the web server to advertise the files as zip archives to try to prevent some web browsers from opening them up as text.
but they should still download as spk files

another way to install the spk is to copy the link and paste it in open file inside the plugin manager thats how i do it

crycrow why dont u use mime types for it? the octet stream should do fine?

AddType application/octet-stream .spk

or google "htaccess octet stream"

The file which you can download in the opening post is not a .zip file, but an .spk file. As Cycrow explained above, he set his webserver to advertise the file as .zip file to prevent browsers from opening it directly. Try changing the file extension from .zip to .spk. Then you should be able to install it using the Plugin Manager.

guessing crycrow didnt have the time yet to fix it
theres no need for zip once he uses octet-stream in his http server config for the spk files

all we can do i the mean time is rename .zip to .spk untill its fixed

Hey Cycrow, is there a way to use your cheat menu to add lucike's pilots to ships? If so, is it possible to give them experience?

Also, thank you _SO MUCH_ for this. This is really the most useful utility I've had in testing scripts, mods and general gameplay concepts.

Can't be done via the cheat menu itself, could be done via a simple script.
Experience is most likely a local variable, so you just need to find what it is and use a script to set it
