-How do you make grapeshot less powerful? (I know it is somewhere in WEAPONS.NDS but I do not know the exact name of the weapon type)

-How do you make it so that solid shot from cannons cause fear?

-How do you decrease the effect of stray bullets hitting troops behind the main line? (this is a big problem in un-modded ACFB)

Sorry, can't answer on thses questions, but it could be questions to Gex, he dealt with artillery many things in HEW.

Did you ask him?

It could be, because in Russian "kartech" mean somehow as like grapeshot or canister or caseshot.

Thanks. I was able to fix the stray bullets effect. However, I still cannot seem to fix grapeshot and make solid shot cause fear. I tried searching with ctrl-F and looking around in WEAPONS.NDS but apparently, there is nothing there called "Kartech".

it is enough:
FEARTYPE 1 10 // OR FEARTYPE 1 50

Perhaps http://translate.google.com wrongly translates my thoughts. wink
Click in the editor press "U" and watch the fear.
The gun must shoot to the fear of work.

search by ctrl-F "PSMPOINTTPUS"

enough to insert in the ARTPUS.MD:
DAMAGE 5 xxx

I have a few more questions.
How do you change the background picture in the main menu?
How do you add new terrain textures for map making?

Here are stored backgrounds:
MAINMENU.GP

textures:
\GROUND\TEX1.BMP ... TEX39.BMP
you risk losing compatibility with other maps wink

PS! You concentrate their efforts on 3D models, and the rest I'll help you set up. cool

How do you change the stand ground bonus of formations? For example, the current stand ground bonus for infantry is +10. I want to decrease it.
