1. I thought this was tested, something must have slipped here. Given the enormus amount of work carried out around the game this is no surpise. Does this ALWAYS happen?

2. Thats "sort of" by design. You need to set an item for weapons because it will always take ammo (non-ammo weapons are not supported). If you don't specify an item then it uses the default (being the first defined item) item which happens to be "Hit Point".

There is also another bug when I start up Meteor the load menu pops down to the bottom and then back up and for the rest of the game the screen that shows you the latest commands appears at the middle of the screen.

(Edited because of newer tests)
v 1.2: I'm not sure if this is a bug...
When I have the mouse crosshair active (by RMB click or option selection)
and I move and stop the player moves a few pixels towards the
crosshair. This makes sneaking with crosshair difficult

Yes it always crashes when I try to delete a frame.
Why non-ammo weapons are no longer supported?
It was cool to make melee weapons in previous versions of meteor
now if I make a melee weapon It'll have to use something for ammo which is stupid (think about a knife with 999999 ammo)

Arrrrrrghhhh, 3 topics in one thread!

Sprite Editor: Clearly I need to look at the Sprite Editor delete code, bare with me.

Ammo: I donít recall there ever being support for non-ammo weapons, if they worked then it was luck. It should have still taken an item from somewhere. It seems that I now have a case to add support for this.

Menu Thing: Uh? The message output sounds like it ok but the menus move? Any chance of a screenshot (F12 to save PCX or Print Screen & paste to a standard GFX editor)?

RMB Crosshair keep moving: I know about this, its a glitch that is connected with the movement logicÖ

When the players stop moving they slow down and then come to a stop, thatís by design (its much more noticeable with the Hoverboard).

Condition 1: When the RMB is down the players move in the direction of the cursor (or WSAD) keys (independently of where they are looking).

Condition 2: When the RMB is not down players rotate (look to) to the movement angle (decided by which cursor key is pressed) and then move in the direction that they are looking.

The result of all this means that when the RMB is released (Condition 1 to Condition 2) players may move slightly in the wrong (cursor) direction. I have tried to explain it here but its probably confusing (even I am struggling at this point).

While working on my mod, I can't load my mod using the bat file for the mod, it loads meteor but none of the changes in the mod base folder are there, like it inever even looked at the mod base folder.

There must simply be an error in the batch file or the mod folder. When I tested the mod I put the files directly into the "Base-Army101" folder (with the normal sub-folders below maps, tiles etc).

Its like this...

<font face="courier">
- Meteor
   - meteor.exe
   - main.dat
   - More files!
   - Base
      - Tiles
      - Maps
      - More folders!
      - gamedefs.txt
      - itemdefs.txt
   - BaseArmy101
      - Tiles
      - Maps
      - More folders!
      - gamedefs.txt
      - itemdefs.txt
</font>

My batch file reads...
meteor.exe -base Base-Army101

Yeah, that would explain the problem, my batch file reads
meteor.exe files-Army101
which is different from the correct path.

Nope, that still doesn't work, I changed the text in the batch file but it still loads normal meteor, not my mod.

about the .bat files. You should rename your mod folder to "davearmy" and your .bat to "meteor -base davearmy"

I am working on a mod and its folder is "afgan" and my afgan.bat is this "meteor -base afgan "

this should work fr you
