TibEd problem with RA2 and YR

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I need help on this. When I use TibEd, it works for both Tiberian Sun and Firestorm. Now for Red Alert 2 and Yuri's Revenge....no. There is nothing changed at all when I use TibEd for red Alert 2. I try to make a new oil-derrick for all sides, did tech=1 and all that good stuff. Start up the game, and nothing is changed. So my idiocracy-way told me to have texan-civilians shoot NukePayload's. So I did that and all, and I both entercouner all 3 texan-type civilians, and they just shoot thier crappy pistols, no nukepayload. I am also using TFD for Tiberian sun and Red alert2. Thanks for reading.

Need more details, things like "and all that good stuff" aren't very informative.

 

Post your codes for your Oil Derrick and Texan.

Did you apply your changes?

I was thinking the same thing :')

Are you modifying Red Alert 2 or Yuri's Revenge? If you're saving for YR and playing RA2, there will be no changes and vice versa.

File -> Preferences, check if your RA2 directory is set right.

I am modifying both. When I save for YR, I check the game to see if the changes are there. I was trying to throw in a working oil-derrick for all countrys but when I open'd YR (THe Derrick I saved it into), nothing shows up. I tried that for Red Alert 2 now and nothing shows. I've done the correct things and did it over again. Nothing

This might be a better question for Koen since I really don't debug TibEd for reasons like this.

You need a Prerequisite=

Uh... "Both sides"?

 

It should be Prerequsite=RADAR

 

If you used more than one of GAAIRC, NARADR, AMRADR, or NAPSIS then that's your problem.

 

 

Also, if you are making it buildable, you don't need these codes:

CaptureEvaEvent=EVA_OilRefineryCaptured

NeedsEngineer=yes

ProduceCashStartup=1000

It still doesn;t work. Here is the new thing: Also, this is for THe First Decade, Yuris Revenge

When I try the Run Game option as well, Yuri's Revenge Crashes before the intro-stuff (or before the menu can come up). But when I start Yuri's Revenge on TFD, it doesn't crash but there are no changes. Is this only for The First Decade users or system users?

Insignificant=no

BuildCat=combat

 

Remove

Category=Soldier

 

Also consider removing FreeUnit=HARV, as the Industrial Plant will mess with the cost and Yuri can't use a War Miner without a standard Refinery.

 

Remember that without a build-up animation, Oil Derricks can't be sold regardless of how you set Unsellable=. If this bothers you, you can find animations for it created by other modders with a quick google search. It also does not come with a cameo and will display the MISSING CAMEO icon unless you add one to the game.

 

 

...And I merged your topics.

I freaked out :P

 

I'll do this carefully to see if this works.

Damn, it still doesn't work. Maybe a bug against Red Alert 2 and YR?

 

Because when I edit Tiberian Sun, it works. But not RA2 and YR

I suppose this is redundant, but:

 

1. Did you ever move your RA2 directory to another folder for any reason? Just in case, make sure that TibEd is pointing to the right folder, even though realistically, it would bug you if it wasn't.

2. Is your copy of RA2 / YR a purchased copy or downloaded?

The RA2 Directory is located in its safe spot, The First Decade Folder, along with YR and the other games. Maybe its the .exe that I should be using? I don't know, but I ain't gonna try it.

 

2. Nope. RA2/YR came with Command & Conquer The First Decade. Mainly because I don't believe in free downloads :P

I used your code to make a functioning Oil Derrick, so unless you are failing to mention another bit of code, it should work.

Once more, and with the info you gave me:

 

[CAOILD]

ProduceCashAmount=20 ; Amount every Delay

Arabs

Arabs,YuriCountry

Cost=1900

Prerequisite=BARRACKS

ToProtect=yes

 

 

BuildCat=combat

 

TibEd, and I just don't like saying this anymore, only works for Tiberian Sun and Firestorm (Hadn't tested on Red Alert 1 or C&C95). Yet it will not apply any changes to RA2 and YR. If there is a bug on that or I am doing something wrong, please tell me. I really would love to mod RA2 and YR in the future.

Yeah, the code works, so it must be TibEd at fault then. Have you tried a fresh download and reinstall already?

Try something simple. Try making the only change to the tech oil derrick the following:

 

ProduceCashAmount=20000 ; Amount every Delay

 

Dont change ANYTHING else, including owners, builds, anything. Go to the map Bay of Pigs, and capture an oil derrick. If you don't make tons and tons of cash, you'll be sure it's not working, and we'll know it's not a code issue at all.

Alrighty then. I'll see to it. If it doesn't work, I'll do what Nm said.

Apperantly, The First Decade RA2 will not work with TibEd. But because of past problems, I installed a RA2 disk to fix it. I used the other RA2 (not TFD) and it worked. But when I started up TFD RA2, it doesn't. What the hell?

Don't worry man. We'll make it through this together. :P

 

But, hey, if that's the case, maybe there's something else stuck in your TFD RA2 directory preventing you from changing anything. Try reinstalling RA2 and YR TFD? Who knows.
