Replacing BIS Stringtable Values
« on: 06 Jan 2009, 03:36:18 »
I'm working on a total conversion mod, and as such, I'd like to be able to replace some of the stringtable entries that BIS used for Arma.  I have set up my stringtable just like I would for OFP, but unlike OFP, Arma is ignoring my new entries and using BIS's.  I know that the stringtable is loading (I used the same stringtable on something new, and it worked fine), but I do not know how to get it to overwrite the pre-existing value.  The arma.RPT has lines indicating this, for example:
Code: [Select]
Item STR_WEST listed twice
Item STR_EAST listed twice
Any help on fixing this would be appreciated.  I'd rather not have to include the entire user interface config and repath all of the strings to fix this.  ;)

Yeah, I know there are multiple stringtables.  Mine is in an addon in a mod folder, though, and I had assumed it would overwrite the value previously loaded from the root directories.
