Okay, so I've read all the topics on these forums about level edit missing presets with TFD. I fixed all the registry issues I can think of. I made sure it's reading the .exe in the correct directories. I looked over everything and it looks fine.

The old level edit works perfectly fine for me. It reads my presets no problem. But when I use the 4.0 level edit, it doesn't have any presets at all.

What else am I doing wrong? Is there another registry that I'm overlooking that needs to be edited.


And forgot to add, I run Win7 64 bit. I redid my PC and reinstalled everything.

Make sure you have the editor folder ANYWHERE but the Program Files folder... That usually fucks it up. I dunno if thats your case but it may be Wink

Make sure you don't rename the TT level edit or else it doesn't work Very Happy

Unlike the original which you can rename with out problem, TT's Level editor MUST be named "LevelEdit" took me a while to figure that out.

I didn't rename the TT level edit. I renamed the old LevelEdit to LevelEdit_Old.

My old level editor works completely fine but I don't see any of the scripts from 4.0. But my presets work. The TT level edit doesn't even show me presets.

I'm feeling lazy so here is a screenshot, make sure the reg is pointed at game.exe and not Renegade, think that was an issue for me early on.
index.php?t=getfile&id=14946&private=0
that reg path is HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Westwood\Renegade\tt btw

I have it set to that also.

I also have

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Westwood\Renegade
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Westwood\Renegade
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Westwood\Renegade\tt
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\LevelEdit.exe


And all their paths are set to read the Game.exe


I still have the issues. No presets with the 4.0 editor.

I reinstalled Renegade and 4.0 (4.1), and it fixed the problem. I still don't understand what the hell the problem was to begin with.

It's probably looking for InstallDir, not InstallPath... InstallDir is in the same reg key but doesn't have Game.exe on the end and must end with a trailing /
