Possible to view saved game unit data?

Post by boredatwork » Fri Oct 19, 2012 9:19 pm

I made the mistake when installing 1.11 of not backing up my modified equipment file first. Now that it's been overwritten a handfull of core units based upon custom units do not appear when I start a new campaign. Replicating the lost unit data is easy except for the # of the equipment. Is there anyway to open a saved game file and find out for example if my Panzer IIIJs use #22 in the unit database and and my 10.5 cm leFHs use equipment #76, what number I had used for my custom 88 Flak AT units?

Sorry, but I don't think that's possible. To my knowledge only Alex could do that.
I know this won't help you in this situation, but for the future consider using GME with your custom equipment files. That way you'll be safeguarded against this kind of issues.

yeahh..a savegame editor would be awesome...
I mean...why da heck is it neccessary to encrypt the scenario files and savegames ? ...there is no sensible reason for doin so.
Paradox has it right with its own games (Hearts of Iron,Europa Universalis etc)...everything (including savegames, AI files, scenario files) can be edited with Notepad cause they are all textbased...

If we knew the encryption code we could probably modify hero bonuses too.

:lol: ...yeah,although...hmmm..knowing the encryption code would render it redundant...just disabling the encryption of the scneario and save files so they remain textbased seems the obvious way...
they may become slightly bigger but thats peanuts anyway for an engine which is very basic and simple thus it would not
have a noteable impact on load times

There is an Editor that works with Heroes but not realy good with other Unit Stats.
