Post Nothing happens?
In regard of my last post (http://forums.datarealms.com/viewtopic.php?p=550573#p550573) where I asked about a program to sprite, I found a little problem where I haven't found a solution to... When I copy a vanilla faction and edit it a little bit it won't show up as my edited version and just be the same as before...

It might be a really stupid question... Sorry about that :-(

By copying a vanilla faction, what do you mean specifically? Copying the entire .rte folder and there you edit your sprites? If that's the case, I think the problem is that the code still references the original faction's sprites.

Alright then, that's the problem, you are still referencing everything from the other mod!

Solution is simple, find the code for the thing you want to edit, and change the paths for the sprites to the sprites you want to use now.

For example, if you copied Coalition.rte and your new faction is called CoalitionResprite.rte (or w/e, really), and you want to edit the sprite of the assault rifle, you'd go to CoalitionResprite.rte/Devices/Weapons/Machineguns.ini, and look for a line that reads

Code:
   SpriteFile = ContentFile
      FilePath = Coalition.rte/Devices/Sprites/RifleSubAutoA.bmp


There you'll change the FilePath to the path of your new, edited sprite. Now, the line below of that should say "FrameCount = X", where X is the number of sprites used for the weapon. If you use only 1 sprite, set it to one, otherwise it'll give you an error.

I hope I was clear, else, ask again :P

It's all about practice and messing around with stuff, and as you said, eventually you'll get a hang of it.

Go ahead, though consider that (sadly) I'm not an all-knowing modder. I'll help you with as much as I can, but posting in the forums is always a good option :P
