Merc Profile Editor[message #346005] Thu, 23 June 2016 20:30 Go to next message

Hi everyone, i would like to make some slight changes to the merc likes and dislikes and here are my thoughts : I am using JA2 Gold, 1.13 ,7435 and the 7609 update, i am also using the 1.4 Arulco Revisited. No other mods or maps or anything. I followed the instructions and once running the zPatch.bat, the merc editor changes from the detailed one with all the drop down menus, to one with only a few tabs on the very top and the leftmost one highlights blue. Clicking on it produces no results. That's it. How do i use this editor ? Is there a tutorial somewhere ? Can i get some instructions on how to use it and save the changes ?
Any help would be appreciated and forgive my ignorance, i am old and not highly educated.

I wouldn't use the merc editor as it may corrupt the files -- I'm not sure about that having never used the merc editor, but I know the ini editor is not to be used to modify ini files because it will corrupt the files.

Instead, use a text editor like Notepad++ (not Word or Wordpad) to modify the MercOpinions.xml It will really help to have a list of all the Mercs and their index number while modifying this file. You can make a list yourself, or use the one I have on my blog: http://arulco.blogspot.com/p/character-list.html
