Latest patch has disabled my "characters" config file.
All other config file changes apply except this one.
Have reinstalled with no joy.

Anyone else having issues with this?

i you add any new information to any ctx.txt file be sure to add the information to all the laguages and make sure, if you are using notepadd++ for editing purposes, to replace the tabs in front of the new info with spaces. otherwise you cant repack the ctx file

oh... thanks for that too. by the way, all i needed was the main_characters.txt file since the only one i found had m.e.r.c. mercs added and a few aim mercs deleted. i would appreciate if you can direct me to a link of an untouched main_characters.txt file?

are you per chance refering to the merc is back mod? the aim mercs are not deleted they just arent visible in the overview. select the first merc i think its biff, an then use the left arrow button and you should get to gus...

for getting the config txts use the pak magic editor that can be found on the page i linked earlier. just unpack the config.pak file and you get the main_characters.txt

Can I download any of these for the American version? The game seems so bland.

What is the best program for editing the text files - notepad or word?
Any tips for those trying to change the interface text?
Do you have to modify the "num_items" at the end of the file if you have added new descriptions? If so is it for every language (+5 for each new item once for each language)?
