    Default CoW 1.4.4 - Easy and painfree Installation

    After having spend the better part of two days to get the full version of this great mod working I could feel for lesser mortals without my extensive knowledge of modding. So I decided to make life a bit easier and created this installation package. Hopefully it will attract more people to this mod. Please note that changes to files are minimal (corrected formatting and size changes) and do not change the game play in any way at all.

    The following CoW downloads have beeen included:

    • Base install 1.4
    • Patch 1.4.4
    • Music Patch
    • English Language patch


    Other downloads from TWCenter:

    • German Language
    • French Language
    • Italian Language
    • Spanish Language


    Work done:

    • Removed all unnecessary files (duplicates, wrongly placed, not needed)
    • Reduced texture sizes of strat models and buildings (reduces lag)
    • Enlarged radar map
    • Adapted checker for modelDB file and made corrections
    • Added my CoW language installer pack 2.0


    Size on disk:



    Comments:

    • Reduction in size on disk - 3.05GB
    • Reduction in installer size - 1.54GB
    • The installer has to be in two parts because more then 2GB size is not supported by this program.


    Recommendations:

    If you are having an old graphic card or experience lag in siege battles try out this 'add-on' of mine: Creating a World - Reduced City Textures, it reduces the size of the original building textures - custom building textures are already reduced in my game installation. See 'work done'.


    Installation:

    1. Download all parts (5*part1 and 6*part2) into one directory
    2. Run the EXE of part1 (DO files will be installed automatically)
    3. Run the EXE of part2 (DO files will be installed automatically)
    4. Update the language installer
    5. Choose your language from the shortcuts on your desktop


    Important:

    • Both installers will appear to be frozen at the beginning for a few minutes due to some huge files being installed (animations pack and sound pack respectively).
    • DO NOT cancel the installation unless you get an error message!


    Downloads Part1: approx. 16mins installation time

    1. EXE 400MB - RapidShare
    2. DO1 400MB - RapidShare
    3. DO2 400MB - RapidShare
    4. DO3 400MB - RapidShare
    5. DO4 281MB - RapidShare



    Downloads Part2: approx. 18mins installation time

    1. EXE 400MB - RapidShare
    2. DO1 400MB - RapidShare
    3. DO2 400MB - RapidShare
    4. DO3 400MB - RapidShare
    5. DO4 400MB - RapidShare
    6. DO5 31Mb - RapidShare


    Attention Steam Users:
    Please read this article BEFORE installing.

    Final note:
    I will not be supporting this in this forum - please use the original thread in TWCenter to post your queries\suggestions. That thread will also have a post with updates and links to patches for this installation.
