Pilot Creation

Unread post by redlar66 » March 30th, 2008, 7:40 pm

I tried to create a new Pilot profile, but the game doesn't really recognize it. I mean, it's given a slot and such, but the image doesn't show up, and the name is given as Unkn. Does the folder holding the pilot profile have to have everything, including .ogg files?

Pilotdata.txt

You may create your own pilot for use in the game.
Pilot data will be transfered during netplay,
so your opponents do not need to have your pilot data.

% Creation

Create a folder in the pilot folder, and create the following:

+ pilot.txt

Put the name of your pilot in this text.
(24 letters max)

+ face.png

Picture of the pilot

This picture will be transferred during netplay, and other players
will see you as this pic.

The size must be: width 200, height 150.

Furthermore, it needs to be under 100 kb to be transferred during netplay.

They must realize that it was impossible to succeed yet
at the same time be capable of enduring patiently.
Is that... the story of a dream that shouldn't be waited upon?..."

*sigh* Yes, I followed the instructions that were included, with the exception of the sounds because I don't have a mike.

That's why I posted this, because even though I followed the instructions, it doesn't work.

All I needed was a face.png and a pilot.txt

Image must be the right dimension.. It CAN be smaller.. But not bigger...

Take in mind that it must also be within the size limit.. As in ??kb.

Also.. Inside pilot.txt.. DO NOT LEAVE IT BLANK
You're suppossed to put in the SAME pilot name as you did in you FOLDER.

The readme is already detailed enough imho...

If you need some working examples.. Do not be afraid to open up the other pilot's files... And double click on the pics or .txt files... I doubt you can open the .ogg sound files tho.. But you wont need that right? Just be sure not to edit anything that you touch there.

pilotdata.txt should explain it well enough.

I second the suggestion above. When I made my pilot, I simply copied one of the Nuko folders and edited everything from there.

Can anyone tell me what syntax I am to code in so that my pilot data will read and play animated gifs? I read in the update log that there's a version 2 pilot where you can create an .spt file that the game will read and consequently you can play animations for your pilot avatar. Thanks!
