That maybe something worth checking on...I've got WC1, SM1 and SM2 all working from the same directory, with one subdirectory called GAMEDAT.
The main directory has these files:
I know the transfer applications are for moving a pilot record over from WC1 or SM1 to SM2. Whether or not you have them would depend on your original downloads.
The GAMEDAT directory has 83 files in it; I won't list them out just yet. But do you have the same number of files in your gamedat directory?
CAMP.002 locally is only 1 kB in size.
I've also got a couple of .DRV files; may want to check to make sure they're present.
STRAX.DRV (5 kB)
SUPERTM.DRV (64 kB)
TM.DRV (30 kB)
Are these files present, and are they the same size?
And just making sure here, you did copy the SM2 files in the same directory as your WC1 files, right?
I don't have either wc.vlp OR the sm2.vlp file. I'm not sure what those are, admittedly. But I do have all the other files you listed in your main directory. I also have those .DRV files, and the sizes match up, and the SM2 files are in the same directory as WC1.
Here's where it gets a little off: I have one GAMEDAT directory for WC1, which contains 68 different files. For the different copies of SM2, I've got two different...things. In the SM2 that has a seperate GAMEDAT directory, that GAMEDAT directory has 32 different files, and in the version of SM2 which has all the files in the same directory, there are 28 different files. I'm afraid to start combining directories; some of the files have the same names. I'm gonna try to move over any non-matching files from the SM2 directory that did NOT contain the GAMEDAT subdirectory first. If that doesn't work, I'll try the files from the SM2 that DOES have the sub-directory. And I'll be smiling the whole time....
HOLY CRAP! IT FRIGGIN WORKED! I will make an altar to WC CIC where I will worship for eternity! Over the top? Maybe, but I've been banging my head against the wall for a while on this one. Sometimes literally
So, I copied all the files from the version of SM2 to my WC1 GAMEDAT sub-directory. If there were any duplicates, I did NOT replace them. Then I made sure I had teh app for SM2 in the same directory as WC1, and Ca-ching! Thank you, capi! Ralgha nar Hallas, here I come! Oh, that was nerdy, even for this place...
