STAUM 2.0 STAUM 2.0

STAUM 2 is a development of a tool designed nine years ago for Armada 1. The tool goes through your ODF & TT files searching for errors that cause the game to crash. You know when you've written off your installation because you missed a quote mark somewhere? This tool finds where. While I haven't used this yet, it sounds like it's just become an essential part of any serious modders toolkit.

Fallengraces had been using this for Armada (1) and found it to be so useful he made the alterations that should be required to get this working in A2, however it's comparatively untested and should be considered to be under development. Unfortunately, the identity of the original developer has been lost to time. If anybody reading this does know who developed the original tool, please let us know!

A few words from Fallengraces:-

A BETA...cant strain that enough that is basically an odf and Techtree error checking program. I found it useful while modding A1 and decided to update in in order to be able to mod A2. File contains both the A1 orginal and the A2 update. Very user friendly, hope this helps those budding modders and some of our old vets. avoid the very painful CTD. For now only understands stock Weaponry and commands but hoping to fix that soon. Everything else i believe is covered in the Readme. I hope to use this thread

as a error and help thread seeing as its stupid to sart another if this will do just fine.

This is a really great idea, I can't even count the number of times I've spent looking through files searching for a missing quotation mark lol, great mod FallenGraces! :-)

This is one of those brilliant ideas that only comes along once in a while. Yet, once it is here, all of us wonder how we ever functioned without it. This will be appreciated more by the modders than the downloaders, I think. However, being so easy to use, it should encourage more of the latter to become one of the former. Thank you,
