Problem to Mod the game after have installed official Patch

Postby Maria Sharapova » 09 Jul 2010, 07:33

I had to reinstall the game & patch just 3 hours ago because i got error messages. So now i want to add my outfits again. I'm reading instructions from the manual and so at the end i go into the game and MY OUTFITS AREN'T THERE. I've edited gamesys.ini and female.ini. I've even added the outfits with their names (shirt16.jpg etc.). I've been trying to figure out the problem for 2 hours now and i can't get it work. The first time i did this it worked perfectly. Now it doesn't work. I can't remember how i got it to work last time (took 2 hours as well). Can someone tell me if i'm doing something wrong here...? :sweat: :sweat:

** I trying to add 7 additional shirts and shorts/skirts.

I think i'm not editing the female.ini correctly. I've tried everything. :sweat:

Also it says theres 6 hats and theres only 4 hats in data/models/textures and i've added a 5th hat and 7th racket but none are appearing. And YES I'm finding this VERY HARD. :sweat:

Loon-a-tic, I tried to find where is the problem, but I don't find it, this is very strange I don't know what is happening..
Did you try to reinstall again and then do it again ? Well you can try but I'm not sure if it's the correct way for it..
So I think the best way it's to wait Manutoo's answer. Sorry..

Thanks anyway kyuuji. I shall wait for Manutoo's answer, if he has one.. hopefully. :wink:

Nevermind, I solved the problem after 7 hours. The outfits don't appear if the patch is installed. I thought the patch was the problem. WHY DIDN'T I SEE THIS BEFORE! :sweat: :sweat: :shock: :shock:

The patch adds a 2nd Pak (Pak02.Pak) which has the priority other the 1st one. The patch Pak contains the .ini you tried to modify & put back in Pak01 so that's why the game didn't see them.
If you play offline, you should do as recommended in the "HowToMod.html" : don't put the files back in a .pak ; let them outside in real subfolders, so they'll be taken in priority (but when playing online, some configuration files are taken from within the Pak to try to avoid desync problem, so your custom Male.ini & Female.ini wouldn't be load if they're outside of the Pak).

That's the best new I ever read on this forum!!! Just discovered it, after I tried for the first time to add some customed outfits ... and didn't see them appear either. And thought I was definitely a dummie.

But to be sure, another question: what subfolder(s) do we have to create? Do we have to extract the whole .pak with all its folders and subfolders, and put everything in the TE root folder, or is there a "lighter" way?

Edit after trying this solution: it invalidates my key.

Wow, you can't imagine how this brought my self-confidence back :P :annoyed: ':D !

Brecht,
u can extract only the files you need to change.
For example, if you want to change the file "Scripts\GameSys.Ini", then put it in : "C:\Program Files\Tennis Elbow 2011\Scripts\" .

Well, after some .... hours I found out that the models/texture folder had yet to be put in the Data folder ... :sweat: :sweat: :sweat: . It sound logic from the beginning, but the examples in the howtomod text were a bit misleading I guess, to me at least ... Then I had to extract the courts of Pak02 and put them in the /textures folder I had extracted first ':D
I read your advice to create a Pak03 to save the modifications. Is there going to be a Pak02 in all the next builds? And what about editing the gamesys.ini of Pak02? (I'm only talking about outfits modifications, that's all I feel capable of for the moment).

I LOVE the challenge :lol: :lol: :blackeye:

Brecht,
the Doc says to not extract in "Data", so for example, "Menu" goes into "C:\Program Files\Tennis Elbow 2011\Menu" not into 'C:\Program Files\Tennis Elbow 2011\Data\Menu", but "Data/Models" goes into "C:\Program Files\Tennis Elbow 2011\Data\Models" (and not into "C:\Program Files\Tennis Elbow 2011\Data\Data\Models").

The Pak02 will always be there :
- when you install the complete demo/full version, it's just empty
- when you install the update, it contains all modified files since the initial release of the v1.0
So if you have the update installed, you should look into the Pak02 1st to get the latest version of the file you want to modify.

Ok Manu thanks for the reply. I'm just a bit embarassed that you always have to answer the same kind of questions - I'm not always sure I read the whole forum before asking and think it's not always possible anyway - and wonder if more directive tutorials would make you lose less time reading and answering here.

No problem, when I get tired to answer the same question, I usually write something about it in the doc... ;)
