Hey Guys,

Just founds this at [link removed by moderator] and have used it before myself. Can be quite fun!


If someone playing the game was ever frustrated with a small number of opposing bugs, here's the tip:

1. Go to the Missions directory, inside you'll find a lot of sub-directories named like "c2m4". These are mission packs, where "C" represents Chapter and "M" - a Mission within that chapter.
2. Inside each sub-directory are several *.txt files. Those named "bh_***.txt" contain the settings for bug holes.
3. Now go into the "bh_***.txt" of your choice. Inside you'll find the following text:

// c1m2
// bughole #5 setting file
//
bug_type = warrior 100

What you need now is to add the following:
startmode = 2
special = 12 1000
totalbugs = -1

put the new lines just below "bug_type".
startmode = 2 will make the bugs spawn like crazies.
special = 12 1000 means (as far as I can understand) there are 12 bugs per respawn with 1000 max out of the hole at any given time.
totalbugs = -1 removes the max cap from the bug_hole.

Once you'll customize a number of bug_holes in this way, you'll notice the difference in gameplay

Now, what you probably should not change in bug_hole settings:
1. don't touch any "ID" or "status" lines; program often needs those for correct in-game events. tweak them at your own peril.
2. "tanker_hole" - the hole is hidden at the game start and will spawn a tanker upon activation.
3. "wall_hole" (or some such) - the hole is positioned at the wall.

About the bug types.
You can actually choose the types of bugs to emerge from the holes. Look for the "bug_type" line and write in the bug type you want. Like that:
bug_type = warrior 100
If you want several types of bugs, the line should be:
bug_type = cherrybomber 60
bug_type = warrior 20
bug_type = spitbug 20
where numbers represent the percentages reserved for any given type of bugs.

The list of bug types (the ones I remember anyway):
warrior - your classic bug
spitbug - like ****-sack spitting acid
cherrybomber - small blue-colored kamikadze
rhino - massive heavily armoured charger
chameleon - stealth bug
hopper - flying bug
brain - well, the brain
royalwarrior - jumping & deadly version of warrior bug

Personally, I would recommend to abstain from mass-spawning brains, for it's just silly.
Hoppers would not always spawn correctly in narrow tunnels (well, they will spawn, but will not be able to fly).
And fighting large numbers of spitbugs and cherrybombers is a rare and peculiar form of masochism, but that's down to individual taste.

Oh, and don't forget to stock up on ammo; actually, you'll probably need to guns per marine as well.
Go into the "interface.txt" and look at the:
line8=ST_UNIT_TYPE_TECH_COMBAT_HARNESS
Change the number at the end of that line to 30 and you'll get that many combat harnesses, which will allow you to give second gun to any marine equipped with it.

You can also think about removing some lines from EXCLUDED section.

Do you mean the save editor you suggested downloading from that site?

Rank system is as follows:
0 = Private
1 = Lance Corpral
2 = Corpral
3 = Seargeant
4 = 3:rd Leautenant
5 = 2:nd Leautenant
6 = 1:st Leautenant
And the GOOD Part is You can make how many you want of each.....

Hey guys,

Just thought I would follow up on this post, the savegame editor works on that site (and quite well - happily surprised), but the runtime editor or whatever it is has been corrupted (or never worked). YOu can change the rank and apparently have as many as you like of each.. Can't change how many troops you can take with you in the first couple of campaigns though which is a bummer.

Enjoy it.

Hey Guys,

Has anyone made any headway with anything yet or anything they'd like explored in terms of how they would mod the game? I've been having a little fun with the save game editor one of the posts eluded to, which has been pretty fun. Nothing quite like a major and a colonel on your squad.

I'd still love to find a way we can change the amount of troops we can take with us on each mission. Particularly in the first couple of missions where we can only take a max of 12 instead of the allowed 18 +3 specials.

I've found a few more details in the attributes (st_attr_.. whatever its called file). A few to mention would be if you ever get sick of bishop being vulnerable or would like to change some of the stats of sergeant nixon when he joins your squad, I have the things you could change to do so and which numbers refer to what attribute etc.

Let me know if anyone wants it.


Kind Regards,

Gere

Hi Gere,

How do you change the number of troops you can occupy each rank and increase the number of upgrade points?

Hey man do you still want this? Cause I can give you the answer to it now if you like. - @Bahcormee

I'm not the original poster, obviously, but I would like to second their request.

Heh, and here I thought I was the only one who still played this game.

A similar modding question,though, would it be possible to replace the in-mission player models with those we see in the pre-mission screens? That would be amazing.

Thank you either way.
