adding other terrrains in yap

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to add the Brain 32/CA Stary new tilesets-green hell mod in yap to have 2 different terrains

 

(CA Stary be my guide for it ,just to give him credits)

 

I've extracted a fresh VietnamSEA terrain from the game (installed just for it in another folder just to take the derrain and delete it to have only yap working for the SEA warfare)

 

then I've renamed folder Vietnam GH

 

rename the ini's Vietnam GH.ini

 

As.shown

 

[Terrain]

TerrainFullName=Vietnam GH

DataFile=VIETNAMSEA_data.INI

TargetFile=VietnamSEA_targets.INI

TargetTypeFile=VietnamSEA_types.INI

MovementFile=VietnamSEA_movement.INI

NationsFile=VietnamSEA_nations.INI

BriefingText=VietnamSEA_briefing.INI

DogfightFile=VietnamSEA_dogfight.INI

DogfightOnly=FALSE

CatFile=VietnamSEA.cat

Longitude=106

Latitude=16

 

[Map]

FilenameFormat=VietnamSEA_Map%d.bmp

Width=1000000.0

Height=1000000.0

NumZoomLevels=2

 

than I've installed the Brain 32 tileset

 

last the CA Stary Green Hell mod

 

Launch the game

 

-New terrain appears

 

I can choose between Vietnam and Vietnam GH

 

Select it

 

launch a single player game

 

set plane and loadout

 

Go!

 

At 60% of loading it crash to desktop

 

tried to extract all from the VietnamSEA.cat and rename

-Same results

 

if I rename it VietnamSEA and temporary disable the Yap terrain

It works

 

where is the error?

In the old days, when we had to have the cat physically in the terrain folder, it had to match exactly the name of ini (and the terrain folder), as do the TFD and HFD files

 

You could try renamining them all to match (expecially the TFD & HFD). I did this for the 'winter thaw' version of ANW, and it worked perfectly.

 

So...

rename TFD & HFD to VietnamSEAGH.TFD and VietnamSEAGH.HFD should do something good...and I wouldn't worry about having the cat in the folder, just use the standard pointer line in the Vietnam GH ini

 

Remember, folder and files can be named anything you want, as long as they all match.

 

Try that, an let us know it that worked!

the error was that a YAP VietnamSEA.cat must be patched before the mod install (YAP)

I was using a fresh unpatched .cat now I've extract all from the patched,rename folder and everything VIETNAMGH including VIETNAMGH.HFD & VIETNAMGH.TFD icluding a blank briefings.ini and everything works good!

Thanks Kevin! :biggrin:
