i check both the object and tre files both match up, so what i did was went into jawa_common.lua and commented out everything that was showing up as loot and just left what wasn't showing up and when i loot them the missing items shows up..... could it be the weight of the item?
I assume this is a new loot item with a new template since you're checking the tre?
You created the template, included it in a serverobjects.lua, added it to an objects lua file, then if you made a new objects file you included it in the allobjects.lua. You've also made a new loot item template, included that in the loot/items.lua file, then added the loot item template to the loot group.
If you've done all that and assuming you followed a guide for creating a new object, the behavior you describe sounds like you forgot to add it to the misc/object_template_crc_string_table.iff file.
