I'm new and need help!
« on: Sep 07, 2017; 10:18 PM »
Hi, I'm new to the forums and the game and I'm trying to make the monsters drop more money. I saw some instructions on how to do it and it seems easy enough, except for the fact that Reanimator isn't saving the changes I do! It keeps reverting to what it was before.

Anyone know the likely cause for that?

Thanks!

It sounds like you haven't run hellpack.exe to pack the file(s) into *.idx/*.dat formats.
Reanimator will only read from packed files, so you'll need to create the appropriate folder structure for your file(s).
Within the reanimator directory create data\excel, and data_common\excel folders, then place your file(s) into whichever is appropriate..
Then when you've run hellpack(just double click on it), copy/move the pack files from the data folder into your hellgate london\data folder, then reanimator will read the file(s) you modified.

Oh, I knew I was doing something wrong, thank you!

And in case I'm running a mod, the procedure is the same? I don't need to do anything different?

Again, thank you!

EDIT: NVM, I figured it out after I lost all my items haha
