Ares's primary facilities have been moved elsewhere:

  • If you wish to report a bug in Ares, please proceed to its bugtracker.
  • If you'd like to request a feature, register a blueprint.
  • If you have questions or can provide answers regarding Ares's usage, visit the Q&A section.
  • Before you post a new question, you should check the FAQ, though.

Behavior

  • Mind the forum rules.
  • Due to its documentedly horrible quality, we do not offer NPatch support.

MMX & avoiding CSF
IIRC there was a way to avoid CSF when using MMX maps. How was this done and does this also work in RA2 or is it YR only?

RE: MMX & avoiding CSF
What exactly do you mean by "avoiding CSF"?

I'm also not sure if this has anything to do with Ares...

It's a bad sign when even I notice something could've been phrased more diplomatically, Worm. Be nice.

Administrative Notice:

Moved to general YR modding area.

Sorry, I don't think there's a way to do that. Blade might know better though.

Maybe the feature was requested but never implemented by WW. It's easy to implement though.

RE: MMX & avoiding CSF
Am I the only one not knowing about the feature? Which feature/what's the problem? Wtf

Is it the requirement for MMX/YRO files to contain a PKT file pointing to a name string in the CSF file?

With Ares it should be possible using the NOSTR: prefix to use the tag value as text opposed to using it as a CSF file label. I haven't tested this, but NOSTR: might work.

RE: MMX & avoiding CSF
NOSTR: works in all contexts where CSF is used, but it only allows up to 26 characters.

RE: MMX & avoiding CSF
Ah, thanks a lot! Is that an Ares feature or a YR feature? It's not working in RA2.

RE: MMX & avoiding CSF
It's an Ares feature. (That's why I didn't mention it initially, under the assumption that if you were looking for Ares information you would have asked in the Ares forum.)

I think I did post in the Ares forum, but the thread was moved.

...because there was no sign you were asking about Ares features.
