weird problem regarding weapon loadouts
Well, the problem occured in the first mission with the Blue Lions,  "Exodus" although i don't think that has anything to do with it. The problem is i suddenly only have access to starting weapons, HL-7, Rockeye, stuff like that and the missions Default fighter.
I'm guessing it's because i changed Mods around a bit but i've done that before and something like this has never happened. Suggestions?

Re: weird problem regarding weapon loadouts
Changing mods with the same pilot, especially in the middle of a campaign, can and most likely will corrupt the pilot file. Hapened to me once. I lost the Prometheus S. Not funny. Delete the pilot and create a new one.

Re: weird problem regarding weapon loadouts
Yeah. You can, of course, use just one pilot and play different mods with it, but you must always play one campaign completely through before switching to another mod. You know how during the FS2 campaign you get access to new ships and weapons during the course of the campaign. If you switch to another mod that lets you have the weapons and ships in another manner, then switch back to the FS2 campaign, the file will act according to the previous mod and therefore might not let you have all the stuff you're supposed to get. The worst results come from switching between FS2 and FSPort, since FSPort uses mostly weapons and ships that FS2 doesn't even have.

The short version: if you know what you're doing, use just one pilot. If you are unsure, use one pilot per mod.

That's the closest campaign restart file I have at the moment. I'll try to remember to build one from Exodus tonight but you'd only have to play about 5 missions if you use that rather than starting the campaign again.

To use a restart, unpack to your mediavps\Data\Missions folder then start the game and make a new pilot. Once you've finished the campaign remember to delete the file it installs or you won't be able to replay the campaign from the start.
Karajorma's Freespace FAQ. It's almost like asking me yourself.
