ok ok ok ok ok ok!!! I think I've posted this already, but in case I haven't:
probably there's something else out there, because it's working on some games and in others it isn't...constant.ini HAS in fact something to do, it doesn't change it directly, but it MUST (MUST must m u s t
or else this mod wouldn't be working ANYWHERE AT ALL) help the mdo somehow someway.....maybe it's helping the other modifications, such as linking or something like that...but for now, please stop fighting about constant.ini!!! it is helping somehow, not directly as peterthereaper insists, but it IS helping.

to be truly honest, not sure...it's also crashing on someone else's game, IDK if it has anything to do with other files. As for now, you should've backed up your files, so replace my files with the original ones...I'll try to see whts happening later

i think something infected my downloaded version of constant.ini because the game won't crash when replaced with the original

Ok...

I know I'm being ignored here but listen to me. The change has absolutely NOTHING, NOTHING to do with the GameConstants ini. The person who modified this folder did so in the scripts. I repeat this is the exact line again. In the "UNITS" folder there a another folder called "WIN". In the "WIN" Folder there is a folder called "DinoFSM". The original creator modified the scripts C_IDLE and H_IDLE.

Here is the modified line:
state PreAcquireNewFlock
{
action SetRand(0, 4)
transition GetRand() == 0
{
action SwallowScaleTarget(2.9, 1.9)
goto AcquireNewFlock
}
transition GetRand() == 1
{
action SwallowScaleTarget(2.2, 0.6)
goto AcquireNewFlock
}
transition GetRand() == 2
{
action SwallowScaleTarget(2.4, 1.2)
goto AcquireNewFlock
}
transition GetRand() == 3
{
action SwallowScaleTarget(2.8, 1.8)
goto AcquireNewFlock
}
transition
{
;//action SwallowScaleTarget(1.7, 1.2)
goto AcquireNewFlock
}
}
state AcquireNewFlock
{
transition AcquireFlockTarget(true)
{
goto FlockChangeCheck
}
transition
{
goto IdleChoose
}
}


That line was never in the original file. What happens is every so often the script changes scale of the flock members. This is why a big dino can become small and vise ver. The Dinosaur HAS to be in a flock for this to work btw.

I can confirm that the constant.ini file has nothing to do with the mod, obviously. I tried adding the mod, except for the constant.ini, and I have had success with making different sized dinosaurs. I haven't tried it with the constant.ini, though. Also, is there a limit to the sizes of the dinosaurs? I ask this because I made 10 different raptors and they all seemed to be the same size. Perhaps they can't get any smaller?

Also, I made a Edmontosaurus that was bigger than a Spino! Unless the Spino was just small... Still, this mod is pretty awesome! :x3:

Do you have GEP running as a mod? Or is it just vanilla?

I have GEP v2. also, I found out that the only difference between this mod and ERC's mod is that the dinosaur can come out of the hatchery with different sizes. other than that, any dino can become smaller or bigger.

I have a theory/hypothesis. Since GEP changes the raptor packing behavior, it messes with the scripts of normal carnivore behavior. You notice in GEP raptors need to "Talk" to each other instead of simply becoming pack members. Try it on vanilla Genesis.

I don't understand what your 'theory' is.
