(Hi) RMG rgdmd.ini and ares csf strings aren't read

Asked by Ich-Henker on 2015-08-06

Hey,
if i put the rgdmd.ini in the Red Aler2 folder it's specifications and changes as given in the ares 0.9 documentation aren't applied - i doublechecked spelling, plurals of Structures= and Vehicles= the singular of Infantry= and the buildings aren't represented as blocks of missing palette. Anyone familiar with that? Do I have to put them in my ecachexxmd.mix or the expandxxmd.mix file- also: the ares csf strings arent read, I had to string them myself like TXT_RELEASE_NOTE for they gave out missing string messages like missing=Name:DESERT

Thanks in advance!

Oh, nice, you found an error in the documentation: it's rmgmd.ini, not rgdmd. Keep in mind this exists already in the game.

Did you added ares.mix into your game folder?

Thanks for the fast response! (And even better, help the documentation to get better).

If I change the RMG.ini to rmgmd.ini i get a fatal error - you mentioned it existing in the game, does it mean i have to mix it into expandxxmd.mix to overwrite the existing file?

I extracted all of ares 0.9 into my game folder (ultimate edition - worked with npatch before). ares.dll, ares.dll.inj, ares.mix and syringe - I do not really know the problem but it worries me if this problem extends to further functions because of the changed mix loading order

thank you!

As I see now the documention first says= Structure (sing.) then Structures (pl.)

Ok, I now see I have to extract rmgmd first sorry - but the string problem prevails...

Thanks for your help!!!

After extracting rmgmd.ini and adding the ares code with either Structure= or Strucures= and both variants in RA2 folder or in ecachexxmd or expandxxmd it still won't work - urban areas are created but without the simple changes i made (no bunkers and tents) -

Sorry, missed the email notifications before you reposted this on PPM, but I guess we can close this with that topic now.

Ich-Henker (goetterwirsind) said : #7

The documentation got [URBAN] wrong it is [Urban] and Structures=
Now it works!

Ich-Henker (goetterwirsind) said : #8

The String problem prevails, maybe a new topic for it so this can be closed?

Anyway thank you :)
