Status Update
Release of AWRM v0.34 is currently underway. This forthcoming version will be primarily an XAP compatability release.

There is one change between XTC and XAP which will require some feedback from you guys and that is on the topic of the Laser Tower weapon (PBC).

I can rebalance the Enh/Adv versions of these weapons to match XAP (effectivly a 2-3 fold increase in damage over XTC) and possibly adjust the prices across the range accordingly - OR - I can reduce the XAP/AWRM laser tower weapon strength back to XTC levels.

What do you think?

hi roger,
got a problem with ur mod, its showing alot readtext errors: 17-250039 to 17-250394 as far as i could see.

looked for its t-files 2500 to 2503 and 7074-L044 and found the strings needed to be shown in game, why doesnt it show the text? dunno how to fix that.

p.s im new to modding and scripting :P

What installation method are you using? ZIP or SPK?

Are you running the Plug-in Manager "As Administrator"? If not, then the mod will not install correctly under Vista/Windows 7.

cant remember, but installed the mod now as admin and nothin changed (deleted all files before that)
except the readtext errors the mod seems to be alright.
is it possible to just rename the t-files to match the script or to rename text inside the script?

The t-files should work fine as-is.
  1. Do you get a pop-up message in-game when starting a new game?
  2. What language game are you running?
  3. Do you have any News/Intro entries in your in-game Encyclopedia?

1. yes, getting 3 readtext errors as popups: 17-250000, 17-250100 and 17-250200

2. its german id 49 (could it work, if i change the language id inside the t-files of 2500-2503 from 44 to 49?)

3. yes, but only readtext errors again (no1 in the newslog regarding the pop-ups)

May be worth a try... I thought that the Lxxxx.xml files were language independent (so should work on any language system). Suffice to say, if this works then fine.

hi again,

i have another problem regarding ur mod.
evrytime i engage into battle, the game crashes sayin "Application Error"

i turned the mod off, then started again, played an hour and fought some battles. no crashes.

theres no problem when i use the new weapons, but could it be, that the npc´s causin the crash when they use them?

What other mods/scripts do you have installed (if any)?

In short EES, but if the game is crashing then there is a strong possiblity of a compatibility issue (normally the game only crashes if something is missing or corrupted).
