Well to be honest I have no idea how to make my own modes, etc.
I just want the jumpdrive to be a "small were" so I could install it on my wings... because in XRM mod last version makes jumpdrive as XL were...

Nevermind ... I found the solution, just had to look some postings further ^^

New version is available via automatic updates.
The automatic function of adding bob's when extracting files also crashes the editor.
Fixed.

----- original posting -----


So, I just installed X³ Editor 2 again on my second hard drive ("d:\modding\programme\x3 editor 2") and startet to "unpack" the .cat/.dat files of my X³: Terran Conflict v3.2 installation ("d:\modding\x3tc\spieldateien\x3 terran conflict") into a new directory ("d:\modding\x3tc\spieldateien\ressourcen").

Everything works fine, if I don't activate the option to automatically convert .bob into .bod-files. If I activate that option, I get following error on the first .bob-file:

After I hit [ok] the software shuts down.

I already found a hint which suggests to turn off the option to start the X³ Editor 2 with administration rights, but it didn't help to solve that problem.
As the error message is also talking about "threads" I also tried to limit the maximum of parallel threads in the BOD Compiler settings to one, also without any success.

Any other suggestions how to solve this error?

hello
i am having a problem after i modified the Tbullet:
i have added a new bullet to create a fragmentation effect with the flacks. then i saved the changes and closed the editor, then i noticed that i forgot to adjust the damege of the bullet and reopened the editor:
it diddnt load the tbullet and appeard a windows saying something like: error loading objet 58 ,worng name(or so) the name suld be ...(i dont remember).
than again i did something really stupid:i opened tbullet using the debbuger and changed "count 59" to "count 58" thinking that this would remove the last bullet that was causing problems.
now i have this message whenever i try to open tbullet:
Error opening file C:\EGOSOFT\X3 Terran conflict\15.cat::types\TBullet.pck

Interface function OpenFile of plugin T File Editor
(DS.X3E.TFileEditor.MainWindow)[TFileEditor.Plugin] threw exception System.ApplicationException:

Error loading object 0:

Unexpected end of file found while trying to load bodyFile


how can i undo this mess??

Go back to the original file and start again.

When you added the new bullet, did you add it to the end of the file ?

Tried doing the reverse and telling it it has 59 ?

If that doesnt work, then its probably lost.

Don't use the debugger for most types files. Use the TFile Editor.

I used it only because i couldn't open the file with the t file editor because it encountered a problem

I am using xrm and i did a lot of changes to some ships and lasers so can i go only back to the original Tbullet and leave the other tfile unchanged?

pb with job editor

Post by Welingen » Tue, 18. Dec 12, 23:03

Hi,

I want to edit jobs.pck file( any jobs file ), every time I try, the Job editor indicate an error:

- Interface function instanceCreated of plugin job editor (DS.X3E.JobEditor.MainWindows ) [JobEditor.plugin] threw exception System.ApplicationException :

Error loading file 'type\tships':

File does not exist.



But all Tships, or Tshield etc.. file exist in my "Type" repertory.

I don't understand why the Job Editor don't find them.

I do like this :

- open X3 editor 2
- open .cat file and looking for Type repertory
- select Jobs.pck file : chose Job editor then error windows open.

All the Type repertory have all needed file.

thx

try unpacking the cat into a temp folder, using the compression so that the file is uncompressed, then editing the raw file.

Its not a good idea to edit within the cats anyway. Its better to extract, edit then put the modified files into the game folders or into a mod cat.

Warelist .pck

Post by Anuke » Thu, 14. Mar 13, 07:00

Is warelist .pck a recording of pre installed wares? And why does it not work for me if so?

Found warelist 130. 8 items. Replaced 8 items with wanted wares by clicking and overtyping. Saved warelist.pck.

Opened tship. Selected warelist id 130. It was not the same warelist. Selected 129... Correct warelist. Went in game and spawned ship with cheat package. Had no installed wares.

Question 1. Did I break warelist.pck?
Question 2. What should I do? I want 8 installed wares.

It sounds as though you are doing it correctly. Are you sure that you are editing the correct version of warelists? Open with VFS to be sure.
