Summary 0003219: Preferences/Readable Editor failure
Revision 05.09.2012 23:04 by grayman
Description Starting with some version after 1.7.0, the Readables Editor ignores any changes to the Preferences/Readable Editor setting.

I never tried to use this until recently, so perhaps it's been broken all along, or was never implemented.

The RE always wants to use darkmod/xdata for storage of xdata content. Changing the settings on the Preferences/Readable Editor screen has no effect, and in fact anything I type in there is ignored during the same session, and lost if I quit DR and start it up again.

As a result, when I work in a non-SVN version of the darkmod folder I get the error message (paraphrased) "You read this xdata text from a PK4, and I can't let you save it back to a PK4, so pick somewhere else to save your change."

This is a major PITA, requiring saving elsewhere and moving the changed text back to the correct xdata file by hand, subverting the reason the RE is there in the first place.
