The mod turned out to be excellent, both in terms of graphics and in the abundance of equipment and battle groups. Thanks to the authors of the mod!)

Is it possible to add the tank commander tiger Befehlspz VIE to the "axsteams" file using the data from the "vehicles" file by analogy, or is there a limitation on the number of groups in the mod (game) engine?

The SS Befehlspz VIE already exists in Axteams as index #97. The only instances of this team are in s.SS-Pz.Abt. 101.

Yes I know. I figured out how to add combat groups, vehicles, weapons, etc. to scripts from the "Base" folder, using the notepad ++ program.

Far easier to mod the /data/base files using a spreadsheet app (Open Office, Libre Office etc) in conjunction with the LSA workbook. Just be sure to save as .txt

Hello everyone. We found out such a bug - the SS units have paratrooper (FJ) badges in their buttonholes, and German armored vehicles have German infantry badges in their buttonholes. How to fix it?)

What data does the Static BGroups file contain? What do they affect?

#18: Re: Gold Juno Sword 9.5 Author: Jatke PostPosted: Fri Oct 15, 2021 10:54 am

re: wrong "badges" - I assume you mean the rank insignia "gadgets" shown to the left of the soldier's name on the Soldier screen. Those are specified in columns E and I in the ***teams.txt files. The gadget graphics themselves are contained in the Graphics/*.gdg files. Use the Munger tool to access those.

re: data in StaticBGs.txt - if you reference the column headers on the Static BGroups tab in the aforementioned LSA WORKBOOK, the data consists of:
"Count" - number of static battle groups
"Class" - static BG index number; "Name" - name of static battle group; "Side" - Allied (0) or Axis (1) all static BGs must be on the same side; "Map Index" - which map that static BG is deployed to. Maps are listed sequentially in the Maps/StratMap.txt file.
"Team Class 0" - index number of the first team in the BG; "Map Tile Index 0" - location where first team is deployed; "Team Class 1" - index number of the second team in the BG; "Map Tile Index 1" - location where second team is deployed; etc. etc.

Errata:

The Nations tab in the workbook somewhat better explains how columns E & I synchronize in ***teams.txt, although their arrangement differs between stock LSA and GJS.

Map Tile Index (map location) in StaticBGs is best determined using mafi's 5CC map tool. Modified StaticBGs files can be used to create battle scenarios that deploy the AIs custom forces to preset locations. Example below.

The data/base *.txt files use tab separated values

Hi,
German infantry badges being "goofed up" has previously been reporting, but I wanted to focus on gameplay related editing for versions 9.5 and previous.
Thanks though for mentioning it.
At this point, I have no plans to make a newer version ... I'm content with 9.5

I've never taken the time to figure out what the exact problem is ... and I'm not an expert on German uniforms and badges.

Therefore, question:
Are the badges just mixed up, and can be swapped to different graphics already in GJS ... or are new graphics required to correct the problem?
