Over the weekend, I put together a few pilot head anis that I'd like to post here and get feedback on. Unfortunately, I'm having a problem.
I used the .eff method to make the anis, because I had trouble understanding the tutorials I found for making ani files. I used FRED 2 Open to make a mission that sends messages for each ani, as a demonstration. Then I put everything into a VP using Maja, so I could upload it as a mod instead of a bunch of loose files. The launcher recognizes the VP and allows me to activate it as a mod, and the demo mission runs as intended. The problem occurs when I try to switch back to another mod afterwards. When I switch to another mod and try to choose my pilot, I get this error message: "The pilot savefile for this campaign is invalid for the current mod. Please select another campaign or switch to the correct mod in order to use this campaign."
The problem seems to fix itself if I quit the game, select "no mod" in the launcher, launch the game, quit, and re-launch with a mod activated. Still, I don't want to cause people inconvenience, and because I've never made a mod for this game before, I'm not sure that I haven't caused some major screwup. I've obviously done something wrong, because this doesn't happen when switching between other mods. So if anyone can help me out, I'd appreciate it.
