First the technical data.

Windows 2000 SP4
Mordor 1.1 full version installed in C:\Program Files\Mordor
Slimey's Editor installed in C:\Program Files\Mordor\Character Editor
"Path is correctly set up" message at the bottom of the editor window


Now, the problems.

"Character Editor" button is unavailable
Clicking on any of the following buttons yeilds a "Run-time error '339': Component 'TABCTL32.ocx' or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid." message.

Item Editor
Race Editor
Monster Editor


I have attempted using it with Mordor completely closed, at the load screen, at the character loaded screen, and inside the city.

Any ideas?

Try something simple, like ensuring that you have the correct data path, and options selected. (i.e., editing Mordor I, not Mordor II)
If that fails, reinstall the editor, or hope that somebody around here has good tech knowledge.

In the slimey_editor.zip there is a file named tabctl32.ocx, on most systems this is already available in the windows\system directory, but apparantly not on your system, anyway...

to fix start a command prompt and do the following:
- start -> run -> cmd (or command if you use Windows 98)
- go to the directory where slimey mordor is installed: cd "\Program Files\Mordor\Character Editor"
- register the control by typing the following: regsvr32 tabctl32.ocx
- should work now ohmy.gifk:

That was helpful for getting the Runtime errors taken care of, and the editor seems to work for the most part (although editing drop rates and "first seen on level:" doesn't seem to work for items), however the Character Editor button is still not available.

The path is set up correctly, if the editor's message is to be believed, but is there a different folder that character data is stored in, or is it also in the DATA subdirectory with all the rest?

it's been ages I used slimey's editor, but I don't think he finished the character editor.
If you want to edit your characters you best do this with the "Mordor Customizer".

basically there's 3 editors who are functional for mordor development:
- wabbit's editor: all-in-one editor which can edit all files (except character file).
- microfx editor (mordor customizer): all in one editor (but not all fields are adjustable), includes a character editor.
- braindead's editor: if you want to create a new dungeon (or edit a map)

if you have no plans for modding and just want to alter the character file (to have a kick start) then it suffices to download the mixrofx editor.

I have successfully used the MicroFX Customizer to tweak characters. I am running Windows XP.
