Can you change the starting level for someone elses module?
« on: March 15, 2014, 02:03:04 AM »
I wanted to start The Sect from level 1; and thought it would be as simple as changing the starting xp settings from 40k to 0. But now the module doesnt load

Starting xp is set to 500, this should start everybody up from level 1 (like it was intended).

I'm a little confused about what you are trying to do.  :drool:

Changing the starting xp in the Game Settings menu shouldn't cause any problems. 

Perhaps the The Sect .dsn you've been playing has become corrupted.  Since you're starting over, you might as well use a fresh copy of the mod, eh?

I don't know how that happened, but the game is set to start at level 1 if you create new characters.

I'm glad to hear that it works now.

It might have happened if the module wasn't applied correctly in UAShell.  That can sometimes cause some weird things to happen with hacked modules.
