Okay just ask if you find the tutorial too buggy, I'd like to improve it even more if there is something you guys dont understand.

And the tacedit tutorial is totally lame, its so generic its almost sure not to work if you try to follow it. heh, but that will be updated soon I hope.

Anyway, the TE map image tutorial should be ok, I've used it myself a couple of times now.

Hi Man, need your help again :(

I follow that tutorial:
CMN_res.lst
MAIN_res.lst
>> both files edited OK.

>> weird, unable to open and edit these *.scf with Notepad:
cp_sua.scf/cs_map.scf /df_map.scf /
df_sua.scf /ia_map.scf /tac_psua.scf
tac_sua.scf /tac_team.scf /transfer.scf

and, can i change it like this:

falcondir\art\main\imagerc.irc file you need to search the line:
[LOADIMAGE] IA_MAP_TGA "art\main\Map_Sec.tga" 0 0
and change it to:
[LOADIMAGE] falklands_big "art\main\Map_Sec.tga" 0 0

>> weird, unable to open and edit these *.scf with Notepad:

Well use some other editor, for example open Ms-Dos Prompt and use Edit or similiar. Actually I'm not sure if that dos edit.com editor is coming with default windows installation, I personally used Q.exe - Qedit which definitely does not come on windows installation.

> [LOADIMAGE] falklands_big "art\main\Map_Sec.tga" 0 0

No, that needs to be "BIG_MAP_ID" because the idx/rsc files where created using that string.

If you cant get those .scf files edited, they are small I can zip them up for you. but try the dos editor first.

CCC, hows the object placement is coming along?

I'm been fiddling with the Tacedit for some time now on Vietnam's te_new.tac, so maybe I could help you out on Falklands.

Ah ha, its done and works!
After few CTD i fixed a bug in Falkland-RSC.zip you send me. you probably hurry to type BIG instead of SMALL.

Anyway, Thanx Snake Man! I've uploaded them to f4falkland egroup.

BTW,
1.any tutorial to quick-build a Kneemap of Falkland?
2.Where should i set as the BULLEYE? any idea?

Oh damn you're right, it should have been SMALL_MAP_ID, my fault :)

Kneemap is mystery to me at this moment.

Bullseye is set from Tacedit. Campaign menu.

Try our tacedit tutorial and if something bugs (CTD?) then we need to figure out whats wrong.

Even tho the tutorial kind of sucks, it has be basic elements to make te_new.tac work.

Hey ccc I am here to help as we discussed on the Combatsim Forum. I have been intouch with my Argie buddies and have a list of facilities that the Argies used in the islands in the 82 war be put together so as to help you with placement and choice of objects....

Hopefully will have this info to you soon!

Alright man, I apologize for that.
Just pick a simple name for this theater.
In fact I know f4 players in Argentines will protest that someday, earier or later.
To solve this, you may rename the folder name to Malvinas, and i'll request Snake Man to build a Malvinas registry, then you can select Malvinas theater in Tswitcher. What you think?

As for acronym, I used to spell Brit for UK, and Arg for you. no offense, really.

I got to said that, this theater is built for historical TE/campaigns, and fictional war(if you want). Absolutely no personal prejudice. If this theater could be done completely, you can fly each sides with fly all patche in different campaigns, like bomb Arg defense on land, or strike Brit fleet at sea.
