hey everyone, im working on a mod for avp 2 and im interested in changing the word "marine" to something else on the single player menu (where the 3 species are selectable). So far, all i know is that the file i need to alter is CRES.DLL. I have tried to alter it using a hex editor but it always screws up when i go to save it in the rez file. I am a novice at this aspect of modding but i know it can be done since i saw the "Hostile Appetite" mod is able to change the words "Custom Levels" in the single player menu to say "Hostile Appetite" instead. Can anyone tell me how to do this please? I really wanted to change the word Marine to my name. Any help would be very much appreciated.

Hello, is it really impossible to install plugins for Maya? To work with models from FEAR, I found havok some content tools on the Internet, but the editor still gives an error.

If you have a "cannot find file xxx.mel for source statement" problem while installing plugins for Maya 6.0.1 - check if you installed the script in the "Your Documents" folder rather than Maya's install folder.

I hope that helps

Thanks, we figured it out a long time ago. And now we are doing our animations, so much experience is enough)

I have waited for this as well. I use 3ds max and have never tried Maya. Please at your earliest convenience provide me with a link to download so I can give this a try.Thanks

Hey there, I'd be interested in taking this on. I have plenty of experience converting models from old games to newer formats and software. For example, I was able to decipher the PlanetSide 2 model format (even with no specification available). Here's a video demonstrating it at work (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qkJuEbv_viE) I have years of programming experience working in games both professionally and as a hobby, and would love to take on a little side-project.

I prefer to use Discord. You can find me on there as Colin Basnett#0827.

Take care, hope to talk to you soon!
