A lot of the debugger-type commands only work when you have DEBUGMODE 1 set in the user.txt file

You will need to give more information than that for us to help.

Your manual notes refers to user.txt but this doesn't exist in my BA install?

Pip,

I was adding some units to the squads file on a campaign as a prelude to editing and get a error "MISSING_IDS_UNITNAMExxx (with XXX be unit number), when I select Unit button.

Two questions:
1) I assume that file do I need to update to correct UNITICONS.DDS but can you advise what program is used to open for editing?
2) is there a limit on number of units that can be in the SQUADS File?


thanks,

dcoffin

It is just warning you that the string is missing. You should add it to the text file in your campaign (usually TEXT1.TXT).

Pip,

One followup to my original question: IS there a limit on number of units that can be in listed in any single the SQUADS File? I had known game limits to 64 total units per side per individual scenairio but did not know if there was a max number of units allowed to be listed in the SQUADS file such as 128.

thanks again in advance

Yes, for BA1 the limit is 128 different unit types.
