Author Topic: Been doing a private AVP 2 mod, but no it can't be...  (Read 474 times)

So I have been doing a private AVP 2 PH mod based on AxP:Realism and I have come to a wall. Basically I was messing around with the files like: I made some changes to each class, added new classes to play, changed alien molting, to molt into a praetorian instead of the queen, I modified some weapons and added some other (like auto shotgun and spitting acid, ...). The game by it self is playable in single player and no crashes occur, but when hosting a multiplayer what sometimes happens is that under class restriction section some classes get multiplied (like having predator listed 6 times) and the text is sometimes overlayed, moreover when other players (brother and friends) attempt to join the game always says that the selected class is not available, no matter what class is chosen.

I'd like someone to at least point me in the direction of whom might know what is the problem.
Ty, Zwei

Have you tried to edit the .dll file (I can't remember if it was CShell, CCres or SRes) containing the ID and atributing a different ID for each class?

Yea, but that one only holds the strings that the game uses. What I found out in the mean time is that I would need a full Primal hunt source code to fix that cause the entire feature to hidden in it. Resource hacker doesn't open that (cause it's obviously encrypted).

Ty anyway.

EDIT: Somehow the game works IF you choose Rykov, but not for any other race. After you're in you can choose whatever race and class you want. I am baffled.
