PostPosted: Mon Mar 26, 2012 1:01 am    Post subject: Help with Selection Mod?

I have a problem. I am attempting to change the maximum number of selected units from 50 to 100 (the 50-unit limit drives me crazy when I'm trying to move large armies Mad). However, I cannot find what file directs this limit. I've looked all through the "Data" and "Startup" folders, and cannot find anything related. Does anyone know where this code is located? Is it hardcoded, perhaps? I am quite frustrated, and any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Smile

Thanks for the quick responses. I don't see the selection limit in battle.xml, though. Do I need to change something for each and every stance?

Hmm, seems I've been mistaken. No idea then. Sorry. Topmodel

@danielpereira: I'm sorry, I forgot to address your suggestion in my last post. I had opened up the .exe with Resource Hacker even before I tried battle.xml, but did not see anything related. Would you happen to know how to find the exact slice of code?

Again, apologies for my lack of a response, and thanks for your help. Smile

Resource hacker won't be enough for the exe-edithing that I'm talkign about. You'll need to learn assembly and get an dissassembler to do that.....

Oh, all right. I can't find a free disassembler online, and since this is the only thing I would probably ever use it for, I'm not going to buy one. Thank you very much for all your suggestions, though. I'm glad to know that there's such a helpful modding community online. Smile

Thanks for the link. I opened up the .exe, but I am nowhere near savvy enough with this kind of code to know where to even begin. I do appreciate all your help though. Smile

I think I'll just stick to .xml from now on. lol
