The Golden Rule of Asking Questions: You will get a better answer if you post more detailed information about the problem you're having.

Posts like "i got rock patch and made a nuke clone but when i launch it i keep getting an erro saying yuris revenge cannot continue blabla" are not helpful at all. They contain no information that can help people determine the cause of your problem.

When you describe your problem, Be sure to include all the relevant information:
  • a detailed description of it, including
    • when it happens
    • what is it triggered by
  • related INI code (extremely important)
  • and possibly the except.txt file


If you post a question like "I added a unit that can kill all infantry in one shot and fire missiles against aircraft and now my mod doesn't work" with no additional info, don't be surprised to receive answers like:
  • This is not a question, and I'm not interested in playing Twenty Questions to pry your actual question out of you — I have better things to do.
  • Do you have anything else to add to that?
  • Oh, that's too bad, I hope you get it fixed.
  • And this has exactly what to do with me?



Thank you for your attention. Please don't post useless topics and remember, the more detailed your description is, the bigger the chance to get useful advice you have.

(P.S. Reading http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html is also a good idea.)
