Custom strings: is it safe/sane to do it this way?
« on: 2010 January 15, 00:11:25 »

I just started to construct string overrides for the EAxian careers like so:

1. in the tuning XML, the entries go


2. then I wrote an .xml that goes

converted it with stblc (thanks for that!) and imported the resulting stbl into my package. The instance for the stbl is pulled out of thin air I actually even forgot that, it has an instance of 0.

This works for me (phew!) - I'm just not sure if it's recommended to do this kind of thing, since I see that everybody else seems to override the EAxian values (where I'm making my own keys instead). I have AM installed and my package overrides AM; haven't tested without AM yet.


(If it does turn out to be a viable way of doing it, I'll convert this into a more info-like post.)

The correct way to generate a STBL instance is basically asspull, although the first byte is used for region encoding and does not form part of the instance. The lowest-instanced STBL takes precedence.

Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I cannot accept, and the wisdom to hide the bodies of those I had to kill because they pissed me off.
