Don't add new units to the files in 1pbat.
The game expects a fixed size for this file and it will crash or not work. Same applies for savegames.

Copy btbxml.py and xmlbtb.py into a 1pbat\B1_01 and install Python 2.6 and then right click on btbxml.py and Edit with IDLE

Change the Map name to B1_01 or whatever mission you want to edit

Run -> Run Module


* BTBXML Guide 3.jpg (131.07 KB. 666x725 - viewed 43 times.)


It will create an out.xml file for you to edit and then recompile back into a BTB file using xmlbtb.py

Also examine the Dark Omen 2 mod template B6_01 which is a copy of B1_01 but I have added more starting units
