ive written it in the german joewood-forum before, so german-player should take a look here
before you start, be asure that youve created a new database-instance(you can do so when the ss-editor starts), that youve chosen this and your original database is untouched. if not, stop the sql server, delete beneath the "res"-dir the files "a5game_data" & "a5game_log.ldf", and do a repair install from silentctorm cd 1.
okay, editor already launched? here we go:
menue "View", "select resource tab" ,"rpg-settings" there check "pers". okay
switch to "pers" (on the lfet side), under "pc-soldiers" are all soldiers you can play, aka "player-characters", with three subcategories, Allies, Axis and "Hero". axis and allies are the player you can choose in your hq, hero is your customized char.
so, now we are going to replace the allies_soldier(hero) with the modell of the italian soldier (by the way, i didnt managed to change the modell of the soldier in the main-char-selector, perhaps later i will update, when i understand the templates better the now).
click beneath "heroes" on the "alliessoldier", and close the the appearing equipment window. on the right side click on "modelid", then on the "..." right of it. in the new windows click your way to "modellscharactershuman skeletonitaly", and select "soldier", hit okay. close the appearing items-window.
now you can build the mod the way i described it before(not in this thread), or use thge ingame build (which takes more time).
ingame: menue "tools", "build", wait a bunch of secs.
when the build is finished, take a look in your silent storm"name of your database instance"-dir, there should be a "game.db" and a "description.txt", taker a look at the creation time, to be asure that these are the one you created just some secs ago.
create a new folder, without spaces in the name, and move this two files into it, then move the folder to your s-storm -main dir.
start up sstorm, and start a new allies-campagne. in the main charselector you wont see any difference (i told you above), just choose the soldier and hit "next". tataa, see screenie.
