Hi guys :bye:

 

I've been playin Strike fighters for a while but I'm only now really getting into it and with the release of the Sea Hawk and Albion/Bulwark I've decided its about time I got the FAA up and running, thing is I have no idea what to do with the ships, or how I'm going to access them once I've got them installed properly as I don't know how to add missions to the game...

 

Craig :cool:

 

ps. I have some experience editing ini's though not much, I'm the guy that releaed the F-104S over at Avsim, the one that was really just a moddified G :cool:

The files should have a readme for installation.

 

Missions are just text files with .msn instead of .txt & they go into the mission folder - it's as easy as that. :smile:

Should be a few to download around the web before you start to make your own.

ok I've hit a problem, I've to add a few lines to the "Groundobjects.ini", but I cant' find it :help:

 

Craig  :cool:

 

You need to use Skypat's cat extractor (available in the download section at Biohaz) - it is in Strike Fighters\Objects\ObjectData.cat (near the bottom of the list).

 

PS. I know where Port Glasgow is :laugh:

I'm just to the north of the Clyde tunnel.

its .msn not msn.

 

e.g. from your first link copy all between & incl. [missionheader] & Waypoint[03].Objective=FALSE

Paste into notepad & save into the missions folder as File Name carriertest.msn & Save as type "all files".

Start SF, go into single missions>load mission & carriertest should be in the dropdown menu.

That's weird - you are patched to Sp3?

I've just done a clean install on a new PC & dropped that into the Missions folder (haven't even added the carriers yet) & I can select & fly it.

 

P.S. seeing as you are showing as the same IP as myself (an NTL proxy) I guess that you are on NTL too?

Yup...

 

And yeah, I'm running SP3  :dntknw:

 

craig  :cool:

weird especially as I just talked Dan through it & it's working fine for him too... :ohmy:

 

Have you got a lot of mods - I could always send you a basic groundobjectdata.ini with Albion & Bulwark added.

 

Try using the carriertest.msn in this zip (you'll have to extract it of course)

http://forum.biohazcentral.com/index.php?a...ype=post&id=966

It's set up for Albion.

well its a start, no carrier and I blow up instantly as does my number 2... at least I can select this one :clapping:

 

Craig  :cool:

So do you want a basic groundobject data.ini with Albion & Bulwark as the only addins?

Alternatively read through what I told Dan to do.

 

btw have you compared my .msn & yours to see where you went wrong?

OK try putting this in your Objects folder after you have unzipped it.

You should also have a separate folder for each of Albion & Bulwark as well as separate data.inis for them in your Objects folder.

GROUNDOBJECTDATA.zip

Nope.

Perhaps if you attach it I can compare it.

2 possibilities that I can see (I haven't tested).

1) Yours is labelled carriertest.msn.txt whereas mine is carriertest.msn

2) Yours has a blank first line

:angry: Hello,I read the explanations, installed the two carrier and the mission ccarriertest.

At the beginning of the mission the plane is over the sea and no carrier near.

I don't understand where is the mistake?

Thank you for your helping

like Buff said you've got to edit the "GROUNDOBJECTS DATA INI."   :cool:

raffut, I believe that there is a typo in the readme & it says edit the groundobjects.ini whereas what you really need to edit is the GROUNDOBJECTSDATA.ini

If you haven't already added items to this before then just use the 1 that I attached.
