[Legacy] STL Tools 2
« on: 16 February 2010 07:39 AM »
STL Tools 2 comes with Trek Battles 3. I am trying to remember how I used to use STL Tools 1 a year ago to be able to use ships I want to battle (not what the AI picks). I can not remember and I have tried STLT2 (acronyms for everything, right) with TB3 but could not get it to work.

I emailed gdata with this info:

Gdata, hello. I went ahead and installed TB3 and its update to try and
use STL Tools. A few things arise.

First, I can not seem to remember how to get it to work. I click
randomize (nice feature, glad you added it [from my suggestion last
year?]) but where do I go from that point? Clicking the green arrow on
the bottom of the program results in nothing happening (STL Tools is
pointing to the right directory). So, I go to the MAIN SETTINGS tab and
click "launch Legacy" from there, but I have gone through all the menus
in the game to try and find the one that will launch the settings I
picked with Tools.

Then I tried a regular skirmish to see what ships there are. I was
unable to pick any race other than the four default stocks. I could not
pick anyone else.

As well, and only tried Federation so far, the game does not seem to
recognize the textures for the Excelsior class. I get the red bug cubed
icon. Not sure if the copy I installed and just localized to me, or with
the TB3 + update.

Wanted to see what you may say.

Should I be posting all this in one of the boards (not sure which you
check often). I think I still will for others to see.

Thanks.

======================

If someone here could tell me, using TB3 and the STLT2 it comes with (in the extras folder), how to get the game to use the ships I pick, it would be appreciated. I basically tried the randomizer, applied, even saved, but that is it. As you see above, I can not figure how to get the game to load USING the tools.

Any help be great. I figure to post this and get other opinions about it. Not sure if this is common or just a "me" thing.

Bless.


EDITED to add game in title.

I reply as fast as I can but it could be hours/months/years unless improperly locked on me). Whatever term you use for resurrecting old threads, I call it "a proper follow up".

Christianity is a lifestyle, not a “religion", with Jesus Christ, Lord/Savior of all. Nothing has disproved any Biblical facts. In fact, science & archeology have done nothing but proved it all instead (trust me, I am a researcher of facts). Pizza party with the Man & I bring the colas!
