    After testing this tool yesterday, I must recommend it to anyone making a modification for this game.

    I tend to think of myself as a careful modder; this tool found four problems with sprites. Not too much out of 200 dmb entries, but these sort of mistakes are very difficult to solve when they are reported by the players.

    I'll add my voice to that - it is easy to use, has a simple intuitive interface and options and will save a lot of time...

    Aye, an excellent tool. I'd just ask that you add a note stating that one must reload the tool when one makes changes to your files.

    As another feature request, would it be possible to have it check for unit cards? It can be tiresome to track down the few units without cards sometimes.

    CaesarVincens: The files themselves are pre-loaded into memory to make the scans faster. I quickly split it up into separate methods and made it pre-load the files when you start a scan. This should ensure you have an up-to-date scan every time you fix your files. The drawback is that the scan is about 2/5th of a second slower.

    Nonetheless an excellent suggestion.

    As for checking unit cards, since the UI stuff is packed away into rather large files, I could make it ask for a confirmation if the user has unpacked his UI files into data/UI. The problem is that some mods still use unitcards from vanilla itself and that could mean a wall of errors for no apparent reason, making tracking down the REAL bugs, pretty much impossible.
    I'll start working on it as soon as I can.

    If there are more suggestions, I would be really happy to hear them out.

    Read the pak file headers, which list all the files in them . . . if only vercingitorix code for the pax extractor was available.

    Well, the PAK files are not like dat/idx files which have a off-the-bat readable header files. So much so, it's completely incomprehensible to me, since I have no experience working with archives such as that.

    EDIT: Oh, nevermind, just noticed something funny in the header.. Might get it to work with some effort. All the info about the files is on the first line of the pak.

    Shoot, I just can't wait that extra 2/5ths of a second!

    I always forget about packed files... I ran into those awhile ago when I was working on the XC Senate campaign. Well, if it doesn't work, that's too bad

    It's just the format that the problem, which was why I was hopping the xpak code was available somewhere.

    Yeah, I'm having problems reading all the bytes, since it seems to think the file ends with the first [NUL]. I do know that the method should be similar to reading TGA files (getting the bytes that is).

    It now reads pak file headers.

    Please select an item from the list -->
    I plan on making the usage of pak's completely optional. So if it fails to read the pak's you won't experience a miserable fail. The drawback of all this elaborate pak loading is that the tool takes 2 seconds to load now. (for me at least; and this laptop is archaic)

    I improved the code quite a bit in the UI card checking feature. Now it will only display info that is actually relevant - If you don't recruit the unit in EDB, it won't check for cards.
    An additional option shows you if an unit is using a Vanilla card. Useful for total conversions that still have old unit names that can be referenced to UI2 pak.

    This beast is not working for me or i'm doing something wrong, (failed to initialize properly (0xc00001350). click on ok to terminate the application), suggestions, pointers or help is an urgent requirement, psychiatrists phone number is optional.

    Thanks for any help.

    Don't put it in the data folder, put it in your mod folder.
    You need to download and install Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 -> http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;displaylang=en

    RTW\mymod\Zeus_Tool.exe
    RTW\mymod\data\descr_sm_factions.txt

    OR

    RTW\Zeus_Tool.exe
    RTW\data\descr_sm_factions.txt

    Great additions, RedFox. One thing I want to point out is that I think it should check cards for units that can be used in custom battles. After all, some mods are only custom battles.

    I don't know how to code it of course, but I imagine it could be done with either two checks or it checks if the unit either is in EDB or doesn't have the "no_custom" attribute.

    Expand your borders, a mod based on XGM 5.

    CV: Actually, it used to check for custom battle models only, I made it tons more complex to read units for buildings instead. It would be easy to add an option to make it check only EDU units.

    Since all the data is preloaded into string lists, it will be very easy to check.

    As for how to code it, it would look something like this:
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 

    Code:
                    #region viaEDU
                    if (uiChkBox2.Checked)
                    {
                        foreach (string item in typeTable)
                        {
                            progress++;
                            // curLine = unit Table index value
                            // curSurName = the ownerships assigned to Unit, 
                            // curName = unit dictionary entry (id)
                                curSurName = ownerTable[curLine];
                                curName = idTable[curLine];
                                unitOK=true;
                                #region doRegularFactions
                                checkCard();
                                #endregion
    
                            // Advanced the unit table index
                            curLine++;
                        }
                    }
                    #endregion

    Thanks RedFox Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 was the problem, swapping between computers is becoming very irritating.
