Good mod but i'm getting some texture errors particularly around the new necron units since 4.0 release.

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

Managed to narrow it down a bit, the log says:
RENDER ANIM -- Art/EBPs/Races/Necrons/Troops/necron_ghost_ark: Unable to open file!
RENDER ANIM -- Art/EBPs/Races/Necrons/Troops/doomsday_ark: Unable to open file!

I'm not sure if it's an issue my end or with the mod it's self but it's only occurred since I updated to 4.0. Is there a fix for this?

Try re-downloading 4.0.
Sounds like those files are corrupt

Reply Good karma+1 vote

Is there a way to fix the white flags

Reply Good karma Bad karma+3 votes

Yes, but before you need learn how to work with 3dmax, import-export scripts, DOW Object Editor and few other tools.

Good morning friend

I follow his work from the beginning I find amazing you are to be congratulated.

Please help me i put 3 parts in the game directory all normal and such and can not turn perfectly.

But when I put the 4.0 codex and run the game it appears that message.



Remembering that just got their mod in the game.

Please help me I love your mods

Wow ! You jumped directly from 3.7 to 4.0 !!
You must have made impressive progress.This makes me get back into Soulstorm.Codex was always professional work to me

Kudos to you and max vote !

Reply Good karma Bad karma+2 votes

Hi again

All i can say so far is that things are amazing and the mod plays better than before.Codex used to be somewhat laggy because i think you introduced some graphics in it too but now it plays much better.

Only 3 things i found so far i have to point out :
1. One of the Orks titans is called Revenant Titan and i think this is wrong.The Revenant Titan is of the Dark Eldar as i know.
2. The Astra Militarium Macharius tank treads are not animated.
3. The advanced buildings button is still there present at every race but there is no advanced building to build. Are you planning to add advanced buildings ? I hoped i would find them already in this release...hoping for them in the future

If i may find other things that might need correcting i'll let you know if you won't mind it
Further enjoying Codex now :)

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

Use Allow Allies win condition, then u will get the advanced building present

Reply Good karma Bad karma+2 votes

Oh yes !
I think you told me this once in the past too.I always forget.Thanks a lot
You can check screenshots from Codex at my profile because i am trying a Re-shader along with it
No other bugs to report so far other than i have

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

Check the Tau ai, and Deamonkin also m8. They dont rebuild listening posts after u destroy them.
