Look in the "fpe" for the item in question (ou can use Notepad to open an "fpe" file). In the file there is a section such as the following example...

...taken from the item "smallview.fpe" located in "Files\entitybank\ww2\scenery\glass\"


The decal "glass_shatter" refers to the decal located in "Files\gamecore\decals\glass_shatter". Usually you can change the decal called to one you want (at least I can in my version). So in my example, if I want to have it use "glass shards", I would replace glass_shatter with glass_shards in the "decal0" line.

There's no problem that can't be solved without applying a little scripting.

thanks fox.
but when i tried that, it didn't work for the object in question that i was trying to fix. i even tried to add the decal code to the thing but it didnt work.
but it did work when i tried it on the windows. so im wondering if its deeper in the FPI.

I guess I'll keep experimenting on it. thanks for the info fox. i now know a little more about this mountian we call "code"
