Well, I've got Windows Vista and have followed instructions found her to get it working. The game crashes after I go into the tactical simulator and finish the battle, but won't if I just simulate the battle without going in...I can live with that. I can skip the intros and all...but I can't seem to get RebEd working.

I've downloaded the 2.0 stuff and used the 1.02 version to get around the "could not find CD problem". Also, I copied all of the files from my CD directly to computer instead of installing.

How do I now get RebEd to realize Rebellion is there so that I can use it? Thanks for the help!

RebEd needs to look into the registry to understand how to find Rebellion where it is installed. Did your Rebellion properly normally install from the default CD onto your hard drive? NO. It looks for that registry entry. I could not get it to install normally using W7. So i must take a copy of the registry entry from another computer with W XP OS (where it did successfully install)and make a new COPY entry for the other computer with W7 . bit of a hassle

missing old DirectX d3drm.dll file which must be added in manually (easy to do) 3D stuff that is no longer added with modern DX installs

Thanks for the reply Slocket. I'll copy/paste it from an old laptop I had hard installed it on and try that and let you know how it turns out.

Hmmm...ok, never done this before and initially misunderstood what you were saying and merely copied/pasted the folder itself. Then I googled how to copy a registry and ran regedit and exported all the files I had hard installed on my old laptop and imported them on my new one. I still didn't have any luck trying to run RebEd though... anything you know of I did wrong there?

Did you import the registry from your old laptop for ALL files, or just RebEd? Just asking.

I only imported the files for Rebellion itself...not RebEd (or any other program for that matter). Should I have done RebEd?

The registry for your computer must be exactly like the install. Example make sure the game Rebellion is installed in the same step up as the default install normally would occur IF I remember sort of like this

C:\program files(x86)\ Star Wars Rebellion\ C: is your hard drive location or it maybe the UK version or even Cool Hand\Star Wars Rebellion\ etc

note that is is something like "Star Wars Rebellion" folder IIRC not simply Rebellion folder. The RebEd editor is trying to read the registry info (I think) to locate the DAT file and DLL location for the Rebellion game. Usually the program code reference is a special system symbol %var% that would look it up, but the OS of Windows has changed sine the Editor was made.

"Errantone" also mad a SWRebellion Editor that does much/not all of what RebED did about two years ago and it worked under W7 Vista I think.

viewtopic.php?f=3&t=3564 if you can find it. I think I still have a copy of it on my old computer.

" Rebellion registry entry is used"

as for RebEd 0.26 Rebellion registry entry is used absolutely and that is why it must be put back in if your using the 'drop and play' method to using Rebellion. Worst case you can hex edit the values back in by hand using the .dat guide for location in the DAT files, but that is not ideal/

LET ME GO LOOK INTO MY OLD COMPUTER AND REGISTRY AND SEE WHAT IS UP :)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
RebEd is a Windows 32 proggy written in Delphi 3. Hex locations are
based on the various files at TRZ and info from nice Rebellion-community
citizens. If you want a DOS prog with nice sounds, graphics and animations,
check SWRE.

+ Easy to use interface with partial hint & help system.

+ No setup or configuration is required, Rebellion registry entry is used. :!:

+ RebEd is contrib-ware, if you find it useful, send good ideas, interesting
hex offsets or anything that could be of use for the RebEd users. At least,
report bugs !


What it does (now) :
--------------------

+ Systems and Sectors Editing
+ Capital Ships Editing
+ Special Forces Editing
+ Facilities Editing
+ Defenses Editing
+ Troops Editing
+ Fighters Editing
+ Major & Minor Characters Editing
+ Missions Success Probabilities Editing
+ Settings saving/loading, as a whole, or as cards
+ Default values restoration
+ Encyclopedia & In-Game pics Editing
+ Generic DLL Entries Editor
----------------------------------------------------------------

I found the SWRE Editor and will upload here here later. As for getting the RebEd .26 running, you need to edit the registry for example like this for ONLY Windows 7 64 bit OS (it is different for W7 32 bit)

Using RegEdit add this to the registry or download the reg file and just add click install it. This is verified to work. :!:

Make sure to move your Rebellion install folder to and rename it as C:\Program Files (x86)\LucasArts\Star Wars Rebellion\

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\LucasArts Entertainment Company LLC]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\LucasArts Entertainment Company LLC\Star Wars Rebellion]
"TooBigLocation"="C:\\Program Files (x86)\\LucasArts\\Star Wars Rebellion\\"
"DllLocation"="C:\\Program Files (x86)\\LucasArts\\Star Wars Rebellion\\"
"DataLocation"="C:\\Program Files (x86)\\LucasArts\\Star Wars Rebellion\\"
"InstalledLocation"="C:\\Program Files (x86)\\LucasArts\\Star Wars Rebellion\\"
"EncyLocation"="C:\\Program Files (x86)\\LucasArts\\Star Wars Rebellion\\EDATA"

RebEd needs to find the DATA folders for Gdata, and Encyclopedia locations for the pictures.
