Excuse me, I need you help for this problem. In American Conquest the motion of cannon is very very slow and, specially, in the maps 4x4, to move a cannon from a corner to the other spend much time!!!!!
How do I change the parameters to speed up the cannons. I take the file ARTPUS.MD and I try to modify the follows lines:
@MOTION_L0 16 0 0 35
@MOTION_R0 16 0 0 35
@MOTION_L1 16 2 0 39
@MOTION_R1 16 2 39 0

but the result was that the cannons on themselves running wildly .... hurt the eyes to look :-(
Please....can you help me!!!!! Thanks in advance :-)
I attack the file for your modifications

Do not touch @ MOTION_ - this animation. smile
you need to use:
//GEOMETRY Radius1 Radius2 StepSize
GEOMETRY 1 15 2
and
ROTATE x

PS! if you think the animation slow, you can use #MOTION_, write to:
/ / # ANIMATION Rotations NFrames FileID_1 frame1 ... FileID_N frameN

for example:
#MOTION_L0 16 18 0 0 0 2 0 4 0 6 0 8 0 10 0 12 0 14 0 16 0 18 0 20 0 22 0 24 0 26 0 28 0 30 0 34 0 36

best result is obtained with the original animation movement speed increase command GEOMETRY:

GEOMETRY 1 60 40

speed with which the weapon to fire can be reduced by half:
#PATTACK4 ...
#ATTACK4...
#UATTACK4...

curious
change only line in the original file:
GEOMETRY 1 60 20
replace it with the GEOMETRY 1 60 40 and make sure it works. Travel speed should increase.

then the copy of my file on one line:
# ATTACK4 ...

must be reloaded quickly shot by the kernel. If it works, replace the following line:

# ATTACK5
and so on ... On the error let me know.
do not worry, it's a long road. :-)
PS! it works, I conducted an experiment

ab_99,
Sorry :-) .....but it doesn't works :-( :-( :-(...... I think that is due to the length of the file.....In fact, the error message says that the RLC is beyond the end of the file: 90 lines......
I am very sorry but I appreciate that you do for me :-)

You can answer my question
GEOMETRY 1 60 40, working or not? (without touching the other strings in the original file)
