Has anyone figured out how to change the starting date in FoT yet?

The core campaign starts on 01 JAN 2197 and if you start a SP mission you get the same. IIRC it's the same for MP games, as well. Since I haven't found any entry in the text files regarding dates other than displays for months, I'm assuming that this is hard-coded. Am I correct here?

Thanks in advance,

OTB

I haven't messed with the hours part for the time being, but could you enter a number of hours at "Starting Hour" to the desired effect for the initial date? If not, I'm hoping Section8 has an e-mail adress in his profile so we can ask. You could change the title to attract his attention.

You know, I hadn't thought of trying to use "Force Start" and "Start Hour" to affect anything except the hour that the mission starts at. Unfortunately it doesn't appear to be a solution, for the following reasons:

  • The field will not accept any non-numeric characters.
  • Any entry > 23 is changed to 23 once you hit "Enter".


So, no matter what date format you use it doesn't work. icon_sad

OTB crosses his fingers hoping that there is indeed a solution other than putting a blurb in the readMe about "pretend the date is X when it really says Y."

I'm trying to chase up a solution, it's not looking altogether promising, but I haven't exhuasted all of my options yet...

Any help is appreciated, Section8. Even if it's only to confirm my fears. smile
