Topic Subject:SH Crusader Skirmish Map team colors are messed up

I have spent many many hours on a skirmish map, and somewhere along the line it got messed up. Player 1 and player 4 are using team color of Player 2 (orange). Red and Blue are not used. I thought the problem was maybe caused by my putting a player 2 wall too close to my keep, but even after deleted it, it is still the same. even in the editor, the color problem is the same. i played another map, also with 8 players, and there was no problem, all 8 colors were there, so it seems to be an issue with this one map only.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Weird. Leads me to question what else went wrong with your map that just hasn't come to light yet...

Anyway, you should be able to fix the problem via hex-editing. For more information, look here. I think this will work with Crusader as well, I've never tried it so I'm not certain. Back up your current map before attempting to hex edit it.

"DOOMBRINGER, make a parking space IMMEDIATELY!"
"DOOMBRINGER declares it to be SO!"
"DOOMBRINGER, I command you to lay siege to THE ISS!"

Hex-editing will also work for Crusader. However, instead of simply replacing 01 with your designated color, you will also have to change 02, because 01 is generally the default blue, but in Crusader's case, it will be red, which is 02.
At least, I think that's how it works with Crusader.

It looks like you've placed things on the map in the editor.

When you place units or walls ect. on the map you have to use the same color that you used for each player, on the right are 8 colored shields, if you used the orange shield for all 3 players 1-4-and 2.

For each player you place units for you have to use a different color, this could be why you have the different colors when you play the map.

If that is the case then you will have to go back and delete what you placed and replace it with the proper color.

I hope that helps
