freelancer mod help requested

I downloaded freelancer mod manager 1.3 and it works fine. I downloaded the monkeys 1.18 and monkey universe. The mod files unziped fine and the mod can be activated.

I play the single player version.

The problem that I'm having is that the dialog boxes in the modified game are either empty or display "IDS?". This problem happens with all the menus (such as the the start up menu, save game menu, job postings in bars) and the converstaion dialog boxes (such as buying a reputation or listening to a rumor in a bar).

I installed SDK1.3, but the problem persists. OK, I'll admit that I have no clue what is causing the problem but I thought the update patch would fix it.

Any nonvulgar suggestion would be appreciated.

The monkey mods look like fun, but when the dialog boxes are empty I can't tell what game characters are telling me, or what faction I'm bribing to increase my reputation with.

Thanks in advance.

Some mods don't have the IDs filled in. It may have been left out on purpose, ie time to do it, or accidentl. E-mail the mod creator and ask.
