Single player - Next mission requirements

I'm sorry if this topic already exists..

Can anyone point me in the right direction to the file(s) that control the next level requirements. (free time in between missions)
What i mean is, In single player you meet juni and king and carry out a few quick missions that are linked together (basically M01a and M01b).
After those missions you need to gain wealth in order to continue the story line.. ie trade, hunt wrecks, missions or whatever.

What i'm looking for is a way to delete that requirement so the story can move on.
In the modification im working on, i have so far been using the standard level requirements, but i'd like to change that.

Any and all help would be great,

Cheers, Khayman.

Story Level (look at storylvl.cpp for usage).

It doesn't.. it's all there in the mission files.. but its very hard to isolate, Adoxa's plugin takes care of that massive headache for such a small task.. much like the rest of his hack/type .dlls (not extensions)

The story level-up cash requirements are hardcoded in content.dll, so it's either a plugin or hex editing.

Thank you (again) adoxa, and eveyone else too.

one more question tho.. should my Freelancer.ini look like this:

[Initial SP DLLs]
path = ..\dlls\bin
DLL = Content.dll, GameSupport, HIGHEST
; required to operate gates and docks
; required to create ships in space
DLL = Content.dll, SpaceSupport, NORMAL
DLL = Content.dll, BaseSupport, NORMAL

DLL = Content.dll, StoryLauncher, BELOW_NORMAL ;story/static missions
DLL = Content.dll, SpacePop, LOWEST ;populator
DLL = Content.dll, AISandbox, BELOW_NORMAL
DLL = Content.dll, TestAutomation, BELOW_NORMAL
DLL = Content.dll, BasePop, LOWEST
DLL = storylvl.dll

im loading this with a mod using flmm1.3, so will i need to use some special method to load storylvl?

i keep getting a crash

i saw another post by adoxa saying if it was being loaded with flmm, you place the storylvl.dll in the EXE folder and change the path. I get the impression i need an XML script to set this.

Unfortunately, FLMM assumes every DLL is a resource DLL, so that's probably what's causing your crash. Until v2 comes out (getting there!), just changing the extension might be easiest. Another possibility might be you're using 1.0 content.dll; in theory I support it, but I only ever test with 1.1.

Does it? I use FLMM 1.4 and it doesn't take EVERY dll as a resources, it takes only those which are not included in Dacom.ini (or at least thats how it seems, since my mod doesn't crash with all the plugins...).

Well, since we (or at least I) haven't seen IG anywhere, it would be logic that someone will make another version. Now I have something to expect for! Good luck adoxa!

Sorry to bump an old topic.
Are the levels the player reaches themselves (i.e the moments you level up in the story, so begin and end of a mission) also hardcoded or can I find them in rankdiff.ini?

Hardcoded (if you grok assembly, I have a note that 6EA6BA0 in content.dll is the function that updates level/mission; found when someone on TLR requested extra free time between missions, but never followed up).

The reason I'm asking is that I'm trying to fix the difference in levels between player and NPCs, which seems to be 2 to 1 roughly. But anyway, thanks adoxa (all hail!)
