So, I've set up a new race in retribution, the Deathwing (don't laugh, those of you who know of the dow1 deathwing mod )
Obviously, relic never intended for anyone to add new races, and they've made it rather hard (or, haven't made it easy).
There are issues if your race comes before any of the default races in the drop down list, it totally screws up race selection. My solution; prefix my race rbf with z (aka zdeathwing.rbf). Puts deathwing at the bottom of the list, no more issues (aside from a slight graphical glitch). But my arcane knowledge ends here. Thus, i ask several questions and post some problems.
1. Where is the file that defines what entities show in the army painter? Deathwing has no assigned entities for the army painter, and as such it's defaulting to showing chaos units/teamcolours (probably because they're the first in the list)
2. Best shown as an image: http://brooksaar.com/files/2011-03-16_00002.jpg [Probably not 56k friendly!]
The buttons highlighted in red do not work! Which means I cannot choose a race AFTER I've chosen my custom race. It works fine for any players using default races, but once I choose deathwing, it no longer works
Has anyone else encountered these problems? Indeed, has anyone else even created a custom race yet?!
Any input is appreciated, and I apologize in advance for the bold stuff, I didn't want it getting lost in the text though
