Maybe for future you could add db table tools?
CA you have done a great job so far, keep up the good work!!
Why there is no German-Axis FPS game?
Thank You for the rep+ given!:wink:
Gah! I just can't get this to work.
Can anyone tell me what i'm doing wrong? I simply want to change the Prussian Line Infantry defence up to 15. So, here's what I do:
1. I use the Pack File manager to open up patch.pack, I point it to db/unit_stats_land, then click extract to get a copy to edit.
2. I open up unit_stats_land in Hex Workshop, then head down to what I'm completely sure is the value of the Prussian Line Infantry defence stat. I change the value from '14' to '15' with the 'Data Inspector' pane - the corresponding hex value switches from '0E' to '0F'. All good. I save it and close Hex Workshop.
3. Back to the Pack File Manager, it's still open. I now right click on the unit_stats_land file from patch.pack and select 'Add file'. I add the file I have just edited, then click save and then exit.
4. Open ETW. It freezes on initial loading screen. Task manager says it's not responding.
So what on earth am I doing wrong? Something simple I've overlooked, I presume?
Ah, now it's working. :blush:
Well, this time I did the same, but instead of clicking 'Add file' in step 3, I clicked 'Replace', then noticed the pack type tab and switched it to 'patch', then saved - and now it works.
Guess I should say a thank you for the Pack File Manager!
Time to fix those Death's Head Hussars...

I suppose that the value that i changed ruined the unit stats file maybe?
hmmm finally i figured, firstly the description here do not fit my unit_stats
Maybe because i have the special forces?....
And secondly i really cannot figure out what values i should change next to e.u.r.o._.l.i.n.e._.i.n.f.a.n.t.r.y._.p.r.u.s.s.i.a.
this is the form
006F 005F 006C 0069 006E 0065 005F 0069
006E 0066 0061 006E 0074 0072 0079 005F
0070 0072 0075 0073 0073 0069 0061 00A0
and i change the last line to this
0072 0072 0075 0073 0073 0069 0061 00A0
the game crashes....
i hate to say that i will have to abandon my quest, iam changing values randomly then testing what have changed and if it not crashes nothing changes....
We need a tutorial to understand the way of thinking.
Iam completely new to that kind of moding and i cannot figure the simularities or the differences between separate units. For eg i cannot figure out how to change the unit numbers for the prussian grenadiers with the example that was posted here at the begining for the American long rifle men. I mean the values are not identical next to the names of the units, they are different at every unit and you cannot standardize your search taking an example from one unit, well at least a cannot figure it out
So you're trying to edit the unit size for Prussian grenadiers?
Well, I've had a look at the file, and unlike Line Infantry, Grenadiers don't seem to have a national identifier, i.e. I can't find 'Prussian' Grenadiers or 'British' Grenadiers. I can only find what I think are the Ottoman and Russian Grenadiers, and perhaps one another that isn't identified. Hmm.
Have CA literally just given each faction - except the Ottomans and Russia - the same exact same Grenadier, with a different skin that is assigned in some other file? That's what it looks like.
If so, Megasalexandros, the only way you can alter the stats or numbers in Prussian Grenadiers is by creating them as new, unique unit. I don't think anyone can do that yet though.
In the mean time, you'll have to pick another unit to try and edit. Unless of course everything I've written is wrong and there's something I've missed out... in which case somebody please tell me where those Grenadiers are!
