Two screenshots of the mod in action. I could not capture just the moment when the trooper fired his rifle... :shock:

Open the equipment.pzeqp and edit the values of the Opel Blitz row (look at the screenshots). Also open in excel the efx.pzdat and edit the Opel Blitz Row. Then copy the InfTruck.png and InfTruck2.png in the Animations game folder and the go to the Audio folder, then to the AttackSfx subfolder and copy the InfTruck.wav and InfTruck2.wav files.

Im not expert in editng .sfx file ... But
I can't understand your ideas about Opel Truck :(tt
Why do you make Opel Truck passive Damage [ - 1] ?

What Mod do you play wih it ?

-1 Soft attack: The troops on the truck will only fire if attacked, you cannot go attacking enemy units with a truck. I edited and added the files as I explained, and I can play it in the vanilla campaigns and also in all the DLC campaigns. I use a custom equipment file based in the one edited by Nikivdd, with some (for now) little additions and tweaks. But basically you can add this "mod" to any other mod you like.

Nice idea, Guille! :D

If I understand it right, we need still the basic icon of the truck for "load-drive" mode within eqp-file and the new "backfire" icon for the "defence" mode only within the sfx-file.

Is there a difference between setting SoftAttack - 1 and SoftAttack [1]? The brackets sets also a passive style...

I think your idea about "back-fire" are good for armored half-track (Hard Target). I mean SdKfz 250/251 . But for ordinary Track (Soft target)- im disagreed.

Hello Asuser: No... The soldier figures which are firing in self defense form part of the animation file (just like the rifle flashes ---> see the files attached in the original thread), not the icon graphic file... So, you always use the regular icon (there is no "backfire icon"). And the firing soldiers will only appear when the truck unit is attacked (just in the same way when a regular infantry unit show muzzle flashes only when attacked, not all the time).
I don't know the difference about setting the Soft Attack Value in -1 or [1], if there is any...

I guess now it will be convenient to delay the infantry if she was sitting in the truck )

A departure from the current matters... But may be a useful icon: a modified Bismarck battleship icon... It is the original Bebro icon, but with some improvements in the hull outline and camouflage, the swastikas painted on deck which could be seen on some icons over there (I think this was not Bebro's) are gone, and added the bow and stern wave foam...

Enjoy!

Hello to all:

I would like to ask for some help... I just decided to start tweaking and adding move types to my PzCorps game. I made a backup copy of the vanilla movement.pzdat file and just tried to add a new movement type in that file, besides, I edited some of the values for the wheeled move type. Also, added a new small graphic file named with the corresponding number in the UI\movement folder and changed some units move type number in the equipment file. The problem is that when I start the game, I can only reach the screen where you set the game difficulty, and then, when hitting the "PLAY" button, nothing happens. The game seems to get stuck in that screen (it did not freeze, because the music kept playing). If I delete the modded file and replace it with the original backup copy, the game starts normally.

Can some more experienced modder tall me what am I doing wrong, or if it is necessary to adjust any other thing to make the game run normally?
I attach the modded movement.pzdat file and the graphic icon...

Thanks in advance!!

Did you just add the 14th mov. type to the movement file?
As far as I remember you still need to add this IDS to the strings.pzdat file.
IDS_MOVT_WHEELED_4x4 Wheel-4x4

Try it.

Hi Intenso, thanks for your advice, I know it's correct because I saw all the other move types labels in the strigs file, so this new one has to stay there also... I did what you said, but same result, the game would not initiate... There is something else missing, it seems... :-(
