Hi guys, been a looooooooong while since I've stopped by. Glad to see the Pfhorums are still here.

Anyways, I've been enjoying Eternal X for the last little while, but I've run into a problem that bugs me. The first terminal in the level Pfhor far lamm doesn't work, and this is a reeeeeealy important point in the story, I need to know what that terminal says. I'd open it up in a map editor myself, but I've been away so long, I don't know how to open up the newer mapfile format. So if anyone could help me out, that'd be fantastic.

What map file type are you seeing? All map file types should be .sceA. Those are the originals and will work in Forge.
I don't care anymore.

Dunno why, but Forge running in OS9 under sheepshaver refuses to recognize the file...

EDIT: Upon further investigation, my OS9 install is having some kind of resource fork issues. So lets assume I don't have forge access. I was going to use Marathon Map Splitter, but it has the same problem as forge. Neither will recognize the file as a map file. It's been so long since I touched OS9, I don't remember a way to force the application to open the file.

Oh and Pfhorge does absolutley nothing when I try to open it, just sits there. And OBED under VMWare just silently crashes, refusing to open back up.

The file is actually mac binary format. Rename from Eternal_Maps.sceA to Eternal_Maps.sceA.bin and use stuffit expander to decode it.

Ah, awesome, that was it, thanks a bunch :D

Unfortunately, the text of the terminal is missing altogether. I'll see if I have an older version or something that contains that bug, meh, we'll see :D

I just downloaded the version currently on the website (1.0.3, been that way for about a year now) and the first terminal is there. You must have downloaded a version some time in the brief week or so (IIRC) between 1.0.0 and 1.0.3.

Also, I like your user icon. You make that yourself?

Yeah, I downloaded 1.0.3 and sure enough, the terminal works. Now I just have to write a cheat script to get my weapons back so I can proceed with the story XD

This icon is OLD, but yes I did make it, thanks :D

And hi Switch, it's been a while :D
