UE Savegame Alliance Switching Crash

Post by deva5tator » Fri Aug 16, 2013 11:44 am

Hi there,

Pretty new to modding BOTF.. I use the Ultimate Dominion Mod III with the Ultimate Editor. Awesome updates/mods for the game by the way!

Just a question on the Ultimate Editor, if you edit a save game to switch alliance, e.g. I start to play as the Feds and switch to the Klingons, change what I want on the Klingon side (send alliance/build stuff etc..) then switch back to the feds after saving game, the next time I try it after 1 of a few turns, when I load the save game after I have switched, the game crashes immediately.

I was just wondering why this is and if there is any way to stop it from happening.

Thanks.

Hi deva5tator,

Let me ask you something first, where did you look for an answer? the reason I ask is I have answered this type of question so many times. and hope to prevent this from being asked so many times.

But the answer is UE corrupts saves games. the saved game editor is mainly for modders for testing.

the only safe editing is turn 1, add credits, add some buildings.

hey, be welcome at afc anyway, most fail to look up things or find anything at all over here at first :)
it's just a community of many individual modders and botf fans and sadly UE is not being updated for a while and has some issues specially with savegames, best get a hex editor and do it manually
changing race that way however will crash anyway as the ai is bound to a race in the save file and there'd be to much references to fix

Thanks, sorry I must have searched the wrong forum section I think..

Yeah I'm not great with modding to be honest especially when it is in depth.. The Ultimate Editor is AWESOME though..
