I apologize up front for being a simpleton but I am hoping some one can help me out with my problem:
So I installed the latest STM with SE IV gold 1.91 and followed the before you play file and installed the latest image mods i could find (components, facilities, planets) but I still have a problem where many of the components in the ship design menu etc. do not have a graphic. Could some one link me to the files I need or explain what I am doing wrong?
Thank you for your patience with me, cant wait to bring the Cardassian Union back to its rightful dominant position. Back to top
The component packs, Planets, Components, Events, Combat, and Facilities go into your SpaceEmpiresIV/Pictures folder. In that folder you will see several folders including ones named Planets, Components, Events, Combat, Facilities, etc.
Simply unzip each of the component packs to your SpaceEmpires/Pictures folder. When asked to over write, click yes. You are replacing only one image, the mini list for each folder, and adding a ton of new images.
After that all the images should show up in the STM just fine. If they do not, let me know. Good luck and enjoy. Where we're going we won't need roads. Back to top
Thanks Atrocities, I think I must be doing something wrong because I had the "full" files for components, facilities and planets downloaded to their respective folders in the SEIV directory but there are still components I dont have graphics for when designing ships. Back to top
I got the components to show up, now my problem is the game crashes when I click on certain planets or other celestial bodies (I know I am a tech support nightmare).. I have unzipped the conents of the full planet file from the image mod into the proper directory so I dont know what would be causing it.. I am so close now.. any help is appreciated.
The exact error message is:
"Access violation at address 00490B96 in module 'Se4.exe.' Read of address 00000004."
Anyone have any idea what that means or how to fix it? Back to top
You have to make sure that all the images go into there correct folders. Picture.bmps go into the Pictures folder, combat into the combat folder, etc.
If you have any bmp images in your spaceempiresiv/pictures folder then they are not in the right place.
There should be no folders inside of any of the pictures, combat, components, factility, event, or planet folders. If you open them you will see what I mean.
Double check to be sure that all the images are in the correct folders, then see if that fixes the problem. Right now the only thing I can think of is that some of the images are not in the correct places.
Good luck. If you need help I can zip my Pictures directory and upload it for you to down load and install. Where we're going we won't need roads. Back to top
