Troops.txt File
« on: October 12, 2018, 01:39:18 am »
Hey guys,

I do realise a lot of skins haven't been updated in years, but I seem to have a problem with the troops.txt file and it ends up messing up the game completely. Also If i manually rename the skins, and also if I change the name of the unit on the troops.txt file, it also messes up the game. Any help would be very much appreciated.

Cheers

Watspoon

Hopefully someone with a better answer can come along, but from from my own experience the txt files (especially the troops.txt) files are very sensitive to change, and I think can only be edited so far. So perhaps renaming isn't possible within the troops.txt?...could be wrong though. In either case, you would probably be better off looking into the module system to do your editing. It is a lot more clear and dependable in changing things like that.

I would imagine you would have to edit module_troops.py not troops.txt

Thanks for the help guys, I've played NW for years but I've never really done skins and modding things, appreciate it!
