teukros Posted February 28, 2005 Share Posted February 28, 2005 So I installed the MC-40a card and model and so far, so good! (did the Alliance ever use the MC-40, or only the MC-40a?) But the MC-40 card I am using has a very very short Encyclopedia entry with no information on the cost, the starfighter squadrons, the guns, etc. (and no room to enter it all into). I checked out the cardspace updates on The Mask's site and they overwrite all existing cards!!!!! I have already put a lot of work into my cards and would not look forward to the work of backing up the text of every single card and then copying it back again. So I was wondering how to go about editing the textra.dll and encytext.dll files directly. I have a hex editor (and I have resource hacker as well) and I have experience doing similar work with Star Trek: Birth of the Federation. ST:BOTF used hardwired offsets for each entry, so if you made an entry larger than it was "supposed" to be, it would overflow and mung up every entry beneath it. Is Rebellion the same way? What else do I need to know to accomplish this? Thanks! Put an overpowered Solar Ionization Reactor in between two cheap-ass engines and a couple of laser cannon, put a chair with a rudimentary flight control and targeting computer on top, and surround the (unpressurized!) pilot with enough armor plate so he doesn't fry in a tenth of a second... riiiiiiiiight Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
