Thread: Help With Unofficial Mods

    Exclamation Help With Unofficial Mods

    *Disclaimer*
    I'm a total neophyte as far as computers.

    I downloaded the Balancing Mini Mod (1.1) and the Darth Formations Mod (8.0). I used a free trial version of Winrar and extracted the files to their respective folders, putting them in and taking out the files that had the same titles. I still have them tucked away in another folder as backups.

    Now, it CTD's when I start a turn. I'm sure that I did something stupid, I just don't know what. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    Which one? Or both?

    As a side note, I haven't installed anything besides BI and EB, so it's clean.

    Just delete them all to be sure. They get regenerated when you start up a new game, so don't worry.

    EDit: note though that all of the submods should work with EB, doesn't mean they all work with each other.

    You probably moved the files and one of them is missing check if you have in
    EB\Data files called descr_formations.txt and descr_formations_ai.txt (these are the formations).

    And in EB\Data\scripts\showme a file called EBBS_SCRIPT.txt
    and in EB\Data\world\maps\campaign\imperial_campaign a file called descr_mercenaries.txt

    You could've accidentally placed them in another folder.

    Also if you're playing with bi descr_mercenaries goes in barbarian_invasion and you might need to start the campaign via provincial campaign (only if you're using BI)

    Also for formations you could try these they're better optimized for EB (they work best using huge unit size)

    Everything looks in order as far as those files, and now it CTD's anytime I try to start a new campaign.

    I'm not actually using BI, I just have it installed from when I played it (a really fun VH/VH WRE campaign, without losing a single territory or ever encountering the Western Rebels).

    Those are the formations I downloaded, the pics looked awesome.

    Thanks again for the help, everybody.

    We never runned into any CTD, except ones caused by CA coding, with formations and/or money mod.

    It could be very possible that it is caused by your installation of BI on top of EB, since EB does change some RTW files.Then when you install BI you overwrite those files.

    Maybe you should try uninstaling all, rebooting then reinstalling RTW, BI , EB and money mod + formations.

    That will give you clean istallation, that should work with no problems.(hopefully)

    Smile Re: Help With Unofficial Mods

    It's RTW Gold (so I'm pretty sure it comes patched to 1.5).

    Yeah, I'm sure I just did something stupid, so I think I'm going to need to just reinstall and try it all over again. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to locate my CD-Key.

    Thanks again for the assistance everybody.

    You only need the CD key to play online. You dont need it to install the game.

    Smile Re: Help With Unofficial Mods

    All that seems to be in order, my RTW and BI work stand alone and so does my EB without any of the downloaded add-ons. The problem seems to be exactly how I'm downloading these mods and replacing the files: I delete the files with the same name (EBBS script and descr.mercenaries, etc.) and "extract the files" from winrar "to the specified folder", i.e. where those other files existed previously (I've checked, I'm putting them in the appropriate folders and deleting all my map.rwm files). Is this all kosher? What should I be doing?
