Having Trouble with Old Mod
I've recently booted up FreeSpace2 after a long time away and remembered about an old story line mod I was working on and wanted to play it. However I keep getting this message trying to run it.

Quote
weapons.tbl(line 4962):
Error: Required token = [#End] or [$Name:], found [;; Create 15 "Cluster Baby" chil].

For some reason I can't seem to figure it out.  I've gone through the weapons.tbl and tried everything I could including deleting the affected line, replacing it, etc.  After 5 hours of staring at the screen I cant figure it out. I'm probably missing something silly somewhere to make it compatible with this version of FS2open.  However like I said I haven't messed around with this stuff in so long I've almost forgotten everything.

Any help would be appreciated.

When [if] I go to heaven, and the big man asks me what did I do all my life I'll say "stayed out of trouble and played FreeSpace until I passed out!"

Re: Having Trouble with Old Mod
There are a ton of errors in those tables, unfortunately.  The specific problem you are having is likely in the previous line: $Flags:                                ( "player allowed" "Spawn Cluster Baby,15" "Bomb" in tech database")

You'll see that the in tech database flag is missing its initial quotation mark.  The are plenty more errors to fix, however.
If a man consults whether he is to fight, when he has the power in his own hands, it is certain that his opinion is against fighting.

oh snap, looks like I got some work ahead of me.
