But what differences does that make on the campaign map?  ???

heya, so i was really impressed with the ancilliaries that youve made specific to factions e.g. ghal maraz!!
 so i tried to introduce an acilliary known as fellblade to the briton faction (skaven) using the sword of might as a template. Needless to say CTD.
 i noticed two things:
 1). sword of might is linked to Description sword_of_might_desc which i cant find anywhere. im probably using this incorrectly for my creation fellblade of ancilliary...
 2). you mention to try and use the spreadsheet over the export but where do i find this? and which software do i need to edit it? (please tell me im not dumb and its excel...... )
 
 i think that the trigger is fine:
 ;------------------------------------------
 Trigger trigger_fellblade
 WhenToTest CharacterTurnEnd
 Condition IsFactionLeader
 and Factiontype britons
 
 AcquireAncillary fellblade chance 100
 
 Many thanks for your time!!!   ;D

The mention of spreadsheets isn't me, that's from the original RTW dev team who probably had much easier tools for all this!

There should be a file giving all the descriptions somewhere in the data/text folder, if that helps. Could you post the entry for the fell blade itself as well as the trigger so I can take a look at that?

No problem :) Just checked, and the text file you want is called export_ancillaries.

Given the Skaven are most definitely in the barbarian culture, that might be a problem! Replace "barbarian" with "roman" and see if that helps :)

so wait would I have to modify the effect description (aka place a new entry with fellblade details) to prevent the CTD?

when i remove the fellblade entry the game runs smoothly so its the problem.
Just wondering which bit is incorrect :s
 
any ideas? :)

cheers for the input!!

Testing suggests that HitPoints seems to require the P being capitalised, and you definitely do need there to be a description line in export_ancillaries. The name of the item isn't "linked" except by the item's name itself, so you need that at minimum.

I scribbled down the following as a placeholder, seems to work:
Code: [Select]
¬---------------

{fellblade} Fell Blade

{fellblade_desc}
This magic dagger found by Clan Eshin in Cathay is poor for guarding against blows, but allows the wielder to cut any enemy's armour.

{fellblade_effects_desc}
+5 attack, -2 to hitpoints
