Trouble Creating a Faction

Post by ___Under___Score___ » November 13th, 2018, 5:04 am

I've been working to create a totally new era for Multiplayer so that a school affiliated club I am in can adjudicate combat in our war-games. I had a lot of trouble getting the era to even appear in the Multiplayer window, but after probably a half dozen attempts that at least is working. My problem now is that when launching a general scenario it immediately declares a defeat. I have yet to test with a custom scenario but I will report back on that when I get the chance to build it.

I think the issue has something to do with the command units I have created for the three factions, or perhaps with the faction .cfgs themselves. I also know that much of the unit development is incomplete, but I am hoping to begin testing a very bare-bones version within the week.

Any advice would be much appreciated, and I have added the zipped files for inspection.

Your unit files need the .cfg extension, and the units in the faction files need to match the id field. So for example:
BlueCommand -> BlueCommand.cfg
and in BlueCommand.cfg it needs id=Blue Command
