THE QUESTION THREAD

Ask any questions relating mods or the World Builder here. All the questions will be added here as an FAQ so that one day, all the questions in the world, including the meaning of life, will be in the main post of this thread. I, and hopefully the rest of the World Builder and Game Mods forumers, will do our best to answer your questions. All I ask is that you breeze through the Map Design and Modding Resource and FAQ threads before posting.


Ask away!

Hmm i have a 2 part question about modding very specific things.

I've succeeded in 99% of the changes i wanted to make, but I'm trying to adjust the MaxHealth stat of the two gates on Dol Guldur: Central Gate and Perimiter Gate.

i've tried changing the HP by editting the map file, but that change doesnt seem to have carried through to the game. for other maps, e.g. isengard, minas tirith etc, i've been able to change the HP in the appropriate ini fle. However i havent found the ini file for dol guldur yet.


Obviously I have RotWK installed, i presume there is not an additional .big file i need to remove which may be obstructing the change made in the map file?

@Axel: Save the maps you make to 'User Maps,' and make sure that before you play you have:
  • Have at least two Player starting points(a way point) (set to 'Player_1_Start' and 'Player_2_Start' respectively...)...
  • Go to 'Edit' then 'Edit Player List...', then just hit 'Add Skirmish Players'...
  • Go to 'Edit' then 'Edit Map Settings...' then add a map name, description, etc...
  • Add Farm Templates ('Objects'-'ByNativeType'-'Neutral'-'STRUCTURE'-'FarmTemplate') for each player (about 3-4 is good...)...

    @Mini: Sorry, I'm not good with ini...

    @Rogash: See my answer to Axel...

    Then tell me exactly (term used mildly...) what you have on the map and what you did to try an use it/save it...

    To change resources go to 'Edit Scripts' (button that looks like a tournament bracket...) - 'New Script' - 'Script Conditions' (leave as 'True' unless you want a specific condition...) - 'Actions if True' - 'Edit' (edit the 'Null operation, otherwise hit 'New'...) - 'Player' - (for resources)'Money' (then just pick your option...) - (command points, continue from 'Player'...)'Command Points' (pick option, but just in case you didn't know you can change command point maxes when in screen (near the top it will say something like x1 or something (x1=1000)...)...

    I have a question. When i make a skybox in bfme2 version, it doesn't show up when i play the map. I made a small intro scene and i just think it would look better with and actual sky instead of a black sky.

    I wish I could be of help, but the only thing that I can guess at the problem being is that you might have the game settings too low... Otherwise I can't help much, sorry...

    Thanx for the help. But i have another question. Do you know how to make a custom map's minimap look like an Ea style minimap? I know you have to draw it out and save it as a .tga file. I've tried this, but when i play the game, the entire minimap is pink.

    minimoo: i know that this is for bfme2.. but it might help try to go to C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Battle for Middle-earth (tm) II then click on maps.big (if you don't have the FinalBIG editor, i dont know how to get to it.) but instead of going directly to bfme2, you should go to rotwk... that should do it.

    Is it possible, when the camera is zoomed in, to scroll the screen to certain parts of the map? I'm really new at this so I don't knwo if it is possible.

    okay is it trieing to move the camera? if so its simple just drag the camera. right click and drag and to turn your camera just the wheel thing in the middle just hold down and turn.

    this is probably something obvious, but i'll ask anyway as there's nothing i can find on the subject. Can someone tell me how to access pre-made maps (like in skirmish) because i'd like to try and recreate the war in the south as a custom campaign and as the maps are pretty good anyway, why let them go to waste?

    Hi i was wondering if anyone has figured out how to get balrog on the map that does not have a time limit on it. I know there is the balrognofire but it has no skills and does not do much damage. I also can't find a bridge that works, all the ones i have tryed say "missing" infront of them in-game, and units do not register that its there but you can see it. (note: the units can walk through the bridge) btw this is for the WB for BFME2 non expansion. thx.

    To have a balrog with no timer, you would put in the code in an ini.file.
    I think this is the right code...:

    Object MorderBalrog
    RemoveModule ModuleTag_LifetimeUpdate
    End

    For the bridges, I gave up on "normal bridges" and decide to make one. I used land and the texture tool to make something that looks like a bridge. But recently, I found that I can use the Helm's Deep bridge (the walkway that goes to the second floor) and used it as a bridge. I had to adjust the land so the beginning and end of the bridge fitted the land.

    Oh and I have a question:
    When I play my maps, the melee units attack the heroes when in battle with the enemy. Such as my own lorien warriors are engaged with orcs AND my glorfindel, who is within the battlion. Why don't I see other maps having this problem?

    I've just finished my map and in my opinion it's pretty decend, i was just gonna make final tests when i coulden't see the map in the normal map list.
    I've checked all the folders, and the map is where it should be. This isen't my first map and the rest are all working fine,
    what could be wrong with this one that prevents it from popping up in my maplist on both multiplayer and singleplayer.

    Hope anyone can help me.
