Thanks for getting those templates in there! I did have the units affected laid out that way on purpose.

For example, formidable: It is all captains and grenadiers, but only M2 and M3 for the shieldbearers, mutons and rocketeers and M3 for the psi witch. That is why I had them laid out the way I did. So we can say Captains grenadiers M2 and M3 shieldbearers M2 and M3 mutons M2 and M3 rocketeers M3 psi witches or the way that I had it before. I think we should tweak it one way or the other. ff03k64 (talk) 15:45, 3 February 2017 (UTC)

Anyone have the details on the duration, effect, and/or proper name of these events? DjinnFor (talk) 21:45, 3 February 2017 (UTC)
Some of the Dark Event settings are in LW2's .ini files located on its \Config\ folder, so it's a matter of opening them with Notepad or Notepad++ and compiling the info. But most of the definitions related to Dark Events is located on the \Script\ folder on the LW_Overhaul.u file but you'll need UE Explorer to open and read its contents. I've looked at it but presently I'm compiling all the info available on LW2's files regarding its Missions, which is already quite challenging :)
The ingame names of all the Dark Events can be found in the \Localization\ file, which contains most of the text strings used by LW2 Hobbes (talk) 03:53, 4 February 2017 (UTC)
I only ask because typically I only dedicate large amounts of my time editing the wiki when I'm unable to access my Long War 2 installation ;) DjinnFor (talk) 08:09, 4 February 2017 (UTC)
