Help with INGAME messages?

Recommended Posts

Federicoxxx

well , to make the story short

i manage to show a message once mi script start


and when i reach a certain amount of "SCORE" or money..


the problem , is,, only let me show the ORIGINALS messages


//this WORK PERFECTLY on the GAME (UNCHANGEDS DEFAULT MESSAGES)

LEVEL START

//Says this

i.e [1001] y!#Excellent! You have completed #all# the #Yakuza jobs#!#



//reaching certain score says this


[1002] z!#Congratulations! You completed #all# the #Zaibatsu jobs#!#


----------------------------------------------------------------------

HOWEVER..............

if i try to edit the gxt with a gxt editor

and change it too

[1001] z!#WELCOME!# To residential DISTRICT!!

OR

[1002] z!#You did!# you get the score!



then save the gxt changes..

when i tried to execute gta2 it says INVALID TYPE in data /e.gxt

LOL even if i change ONE SIMPLE LETTER like

[1002] z!#Congratulations! You completed #all# the #Zaibatsu jobs#!#

to

//add a more "s" TO CONGRATULATIONS

[1002] z!#Congratulationss! You completed #all# the #Zaibatsu jobs#!#

it says the same!


i m using GXTEdv3.0.1


alsooo there is no way i can use this HEAD on my script to show messages?

 

 

Gta2_cop_face.png

maybe.. USING "p!" on the messages,,,,?

 

however..my game doesnt work if i change even one letter.. of the gxts

Are you saving it as English? There's a dropdown menu in the editor that lets you select the language.

yep! . i tried something funny ..

 

open the e.gxt file ,

 

DONT MAKE ANY CHANGE AT ALL,,, NOT A LETTER, NOTHING AT ALL ..

 

AND JUST SELECT "SAVE"

 

"says, error" when i tried to launch the game..

 

it seems the GXT EDITOR SOMEHOW CORRUPT THE gxtfile..once you click save

 

EVEN IF you didnt make any change..

also i tried the same with s.gxt the SPANISH version ..also the DROPDOWN ON SPANISH ..

 

and is the same..

 

it work like a charm with default messages..

 

but..once you click SAVE...IS ALL OVER..even if didnt make any change at all ..

 

so yes..i have backups of ORIGINALS GXTS files...is the only way to fix it

 

and i can only show default messages...since i cant make any changes..

I get invalid type if I select Spanish in the GXT and English in GTA2 Manager. If I select the same language in both then it works fine.

 

If you have GTA2 installed in program files then Windows might be looking in the VirtualStore folder instead of the GTA2 data folder. To avoid that VirtualStore annoyance, it's best to move GTA2 to some folder outside of program files.

I use the same version but there are other GXT editors you could try. It might be a compatibility problem with your Windows language/keyboard settings but that's just a guess.
