Editing Soldier Colours

Postby normski- » Wed Nov 15, 2006 4:07 am

I know there's a tool that does this.

I just can't remember its name or where to get it.

... ?

Soldier Color Editor by Cpl. Filth. I believe it's in the Downloads section. If not here then CCS.

It works very well. If any modder is interested, I have a uniform color set for a CC5 mod for the Barnum and Bailey circus clowns versus a 1910 style French Foriegn Legion.

I've discovered that it needs the Microsoft Java Virtual Machine. I downloaded the current Java Virtual Machine from Sun Microsystems, but soldier colour edit doesn't work with that. Frustrating.

Incidentally I've downloaded a whole load of CC3 tools for editing tanks etc. IIRC most of these only worked in DOS, which could be accessed from Win98, but I now have XP. Does this mean I'm stuffed before I begin?

QClone 2 rocks though.

The Java machine that you need is in the downloads. It is in the second to last folder labled Other.

You can run a DOS window from Start\Run and typing cmd. (Or is it cmd.exe? My XP computer is down and I'm using an older ME one, so I can't check.)

I hate running it from there because of all the path typing to get to the right folder. Explore your Windows folder. In the System 32 folder below that you will find the cmd.exe. Copy that and paste copies into the tools folders that run from DOS.

I don't understand that one.
Am I not up to date on my tools?

Or you can run it from the WinXP desktop by going to Start-Programs-Accessories-Command Prompt.

Or you can cut and paste existing uniform changes using your new hex editor.

go to 0x162d7c = 1453436 of the mocc3.exe of the mod with the uniforms you like.

Highlight the the following 1044bytes which make up the uniform colours and copy and paste into your new exe.

@ schrecken, if I look for the same set of strings in the CCM exe file I guess I would be able to edit uniforms too, correct?

Marines v Barnum circus, it could get messy.

As CC5 will have American and German

It's worth a try... I don't even know If CCM uses the same strings as CC5 for US uniforms, I would be interested to know though :)
