an actual plee for help
the rambler is back, with an actual problem.
i was buzzing around for a while on the internet, until i found "star trek nova: the final frontier". i downloaded it and started playing, everything was fine. because this was only the demo, there were only 2 ships and 4 outfits, i decided that seeing as i couldn't have the full version, i would make the demo a bit more comfortable, i tried to add photon torpedoes to the ships weaponry. everything was fine so far.
i found a picture of a photon torpedo that i would use to make my weapon, everything still fine at this point. i made the weapon part of the weapon without problems, but then i uploaded the file as a "pict" into evnew, i then added a "spin" resource, which i linked to the "pict", i then told the weapon to use that "spin" as it's appearance. then things went downhill. i fired up ev nova, thinking my torpedo would work and look as i had intended it to. gasp terror strikes!!! an evil error message appeared infront of my eyes, it said "error loading sprite (then my picture name, then a very long string of numbers)". i clicked OK and carried on, but gasp terror struck again!!! another evil message saying "ev nova has encountered an error, and must now close" (i cant remember the actual wording, it was something like "erm... cant load your sprite dude, im gonna go ahead and shut myself down now") at which point ev nova closed. i checked my modified plugin to see if i could fix this, but everything i had added had dissapeared gasp again!!! help!
if you need more detail do say.
the extra weapon was going to be fairly good, it would have looked like a photon torpedo, homed in, taken 50 units of energy, and most importantly done almost as much damage as a polaris torpedo. oh yeah, i also changed the phaser type x to look and act more like a phaser, it traveled further, took time to reload, and was more red than its original (a strange orange colour... orange mutters under his breath about the colour "orange" and its evil friend, the error message)
as my final statement... help!
