BOTF 1 - stbo.res and teachtip.tdb

Hello.

Im working to translate the Birth of the federation -original- program into Hungarian.
My problem is if you make changes to anything in stbo.res,
after saving the changed part does not work.

eg:
if teachtip.tdb in changing the "Click here to pause the game and return to the main menu "
--> "Ide kattintva a kilepsz a jatekbol es a fomenube jutsz."
Then the game starts, the help menu does not work.

Same by the other files: treaty.tdb, cdiplomt.tdb, etc. ...

Why not work the help menu after the changes?

Thanks

Are you using UE, or some other program?

I think you've either found an error within the version of UE that your using, what are/did you use to edit the files: treaty.tdb, cdiplomt.tdb, etc. ...? was it a developement version or current stable? -- or, you were asked to update trek.exe and didn't.

Could you supply a little more infomation about what you did as it is hard to analyse what your issue is with out more info. :)

Maitrin, are you using the main multi installer? If not and you're using a CD version of the game you should consider updating it using Joker's patch. It's the only version of trek.exe UE supports.

Alternatively, you can try an older version of UE (version 0.7.0 or lower) or in the current version you could go to edit->settings and untick "Load secondary files" before opening stbof.res, this will tell UE to try to work without using trek.exe. For editing the text you won't need trek.exe loaded anyway and so it should work fine.

If you edited trek.exe before and now can no longer edit the same file then Peter is right and a bug caused this.
