Re: GUI fnt trek.exe locations

*tactscn.wdf text in combat area "beam %" changes only the font, not the bars.

Re: GUI fnt trek.exe locations

nice findings.
there must be also some values who set that only capital letters are used. but didn't find anything near your mentioned values in trek.exe.

Re: Unknown ship stats pop-up bug (fix)

a little bug from vanilla that's still active: if you met unknown minor ships, the f1 map task force counter pop-up (if you hover over the small unknown icon in a sector on f1 map) has two lines (instead of normal one line) and shows: minor ship name 1 unknown unit if you know the minor race already...

Re: Commands in Tactical Combat

yes, but are the not used tactical orders already implemented in BotF and useable or does only the pictures exists?

Re: Commands in Tactical Combat

i've noticed that in stbof.res are a lot more pictures for tactical orders, than used in the game. from the previous posts i know that some in vanilla BotF unused tactical orders are already programmed and usable, like cloaking, which already has entries in the lexicon file. but all the other unused...

Re:

combat.mnu: Note; description in combat.mnu only changes text in popup command window not tactical display on left. that's right, but how to change the headline for the tactical display on the left side? i saw SCT's code for the descriptions, but each tactical display has also a headline. so where ...

The only difference I see is you used the german version shipname.bin. but this should not matter.
how can you identify my shipname.bin as german? what's the difference?
i thought they were 100% identical?!

Re: Shipname Appendix Fix & Adding new name groups

so, first results for testing: implemented new code and used a shipname.bin with one additional name group and card strike cruiser model I + II was given the new name group 62 (3E) via manually shiplist.sst edit. within game, the names of all ship types are not set correctly anymore. within UE, can'...

Re: Shipname Appendix Fix & Adding new name groups

In theory the following two changes of the patch 'Adding new shipname groups - extending shipname.bin & shipname.dat' might work with the 'one byte per group in shipname.bin' change by DCER. at 0x74910 change 8B 16 83 C6 04 -> 0F B6 16 46 90 at 0x749C6 reset 0x13 bytes to 8B B3 F8 00 00 00 C1 E7 02...

Re: Shipname Appendix Fix & Adding new name groups

If I saw the shipname.bin I might be able to explain error. i have attached the shipname.bin file. at the end of the list is group 62 (132 new bytes - each name 44 bytes) (ID 3E - starting at (hexadecimal) 0xF4B8), three names copied and altered from yridian name list (group 61 - 3D). at position 0...

Re: Shipname Appendix Fix & Adding new name groups

but overall good news so far for extending the name groups.
but only if all other things set in shipname.bin & shiplist.sst,
because after implementing new name groups in this both files, UE won't be able to edit them anymore.

Re: Shipname Appendix Fix & Adding new name groups

sounds good. tested a bit on my own this morning. installed SCT patch manually (QD's patcher). edited shipname.bin manually (extended the list by one new name group with two names (correct structure), set ID for total number of names for new group, set new pointer for start of name lists) and also s...

Re: Shipname Appendix Fix & Adding new name groups

Problem is that manually editing of shipname.bin is a pain (and these days I don't even know how to add a file manually to stbof.res without corrupting it). so I had to create a command line tool to add files to stbof.res with 7-zip. i simply add files with winrar, just rename stbof.res to stbof.ra...
