Hey guys, When I succesfully donwloaded and istalled a bfv mod, I started up the game, but it was still the same. So I went to look how I could activate the mod, but I found it nowhere, could you guys help me?

you should activate the mod first .... check the menu inside the game and you should see a page that lists all your mods ..... select it then click ACTIVATE .... or you can add this to the end of the launching command for the shortcut properties ....

+game yourmodnamegoeshere +restart 1

To make it more clear .... Right click the game shortcut on your desktop and select properties .... you will see the following command in the TARGET: dialog ....

"C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield Vietnam\bfvietnam.exe"

now make it look like this except put your mod name not the word "mymod" ....

"C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield Vietnam\bfvietnam.exe" +game mymod

or create a duplicate of the shortcut , then rename/edit the copy and leave the original intact ....

Well, to me, that would be confusing. Basically, Abstracto, what Luciano is saying is to put "C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield Vietnam\bfvietnam.exe" +game [color=red]MOD[/color] Where [color=red]MOD[/color][color=silver] is the folder name of the mod. For example, to run my mod, e-dalgo Mod... with folder name e-dalgo_Mod, I would make a shortcut and put this in the TARGET: box:[/color] [color=silver]"C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield Vietnam\bfvietnam.exe" +game e-dalgo_Mod[/color] Of course, you have to substitute the path to your bfvietnam.exe instead of the default, which was given above. If all else fails, tell us what mod you're trying to play and that might help the situation. Good luck with your problem. :lookaround:
