Bug Reports & Support / UI bug, showing no text on buttons.
« on: March 21, 2014, 06:20:19 AM »
Hi there, i seem to have a slight problem with my game.
when I am in the main menu there is no text on the buttons, the codex or nearly every menu i go in.
How do I fix this?

EDIT: after browsing a bit it seems that others with AMD graphics cards are having problems aswell.
I currently have 14.1 installed. (beta drivers)

Modding / various homeworld sprites (WIP)
« on: March 12, 2012, 11:49:16 AM »
hi there, as you may know I am a huge homeworld fan. so i wanted to start a new topic: homeworld sprites. on this topic you can download, request, show any homeworld sprite. (including modded sprites). got a cool one? post it here! i'll try to add homeworld 1 and 2 sprites but because I lost my HW1 disc. I gotta find that one first. A little example of what i'm working on: its not finished yet. it needs a lot of work but it is a start.

its flipped because its a horizontal oriƫnted ship. and it looks cooler when it's on it's side. not a real homeworld ship but close enought.

Modding / Project MyMod

Hello everyone,

before i begin i want to tell you some things first.
i'm 16 y/o and live in holland so english is not my native language.
I'm still in school and i won't have a lot of spare time.
now... lets begin!

My name is Teun Holsbeek. 16 y/o and live in holland. i have bought the game a couple of days ago and am very interested in it. especially the modding scene. but i don't know anything about scripting, java, JSON etc. but really want to learn it and apply it in making mods. but I don't want to do it alone, i wanted to make it a kind of interactive experience, sharing knowledge about the game and its mods. so that everyone can learn it slowly and gradually. start with the basics like creating a map, mission, editing one weapon on a fighter and let them battle on a blank map. Posting the progress I make and (hopefully) get advice and help from the forum and other people. like i said i wanted to make it interactive so that other people can learn to. I will post all problems i run into, and maybe someone can show with a post how to solve it. maybe i can make like a youtube video trying to explain how i fixed things.

the things i know.
only the very basics of modding: editing mod_info files. using the *.ship/.variant editor online the basics of mission_list files icons, mission discriptions.
converting JSON files using the JSON validator, i know a bit about editing ships to ship.variants using the *.ship/.variant editor.

The Things I DONT know :( :using JSON (i think there will be people shouting GO LOOK IT UP ON THE INTERNET! but i already did aswell with java its so much information and its very hard for me to learn in a short period of time). a large part of mission discriptor files, editing all the CSV files using excel. (there must be a quicker wayto add the ship data?) will be shown with a screenshot in a sec...

questions i have.
is this a good idea? or will most of you say **** it u dont know scripting language and dont come near it if you don't know it. or will you actually be helpfull creating this 'guide'.

if you think this is a good idea i have a question already:
