How do you combine mods?
With great difficulty if you want the AI to work, and with some difficulty if they both edit one of the same files. I'm almost certain someone has asked that here within the last month, though, so try having a hunt around and post back if you can't find it. It was a thread that both myself and Danimator (the AI Guy) posted in.
i found it before i posted but 1 thats only half of my problem (and i dont understand it) and 2, how you actually combine the files (eg tau units and steel legion units), cutting and pasting didnt work for me, mayby i was doing it wrong :(
The simple and hackish way to do it is to copy all of the files out of the Steel Legion mod folder and paste them in to the Tau mod folder. It'll completely break online play using the Tau mod, the AI won't work for the Steel Legion and some of the win conditions won't work for the Steel Legion, but it should then load up both of the races when you select the Tau Mod. The other main problem with that method, though, is if the two Mod have updated some of the same files (which they certainly will have in the AI)

do corsixs or any other mod combiner ever come out for WA?
i rely would like to know how to do that but of corse im a retared lol:D :smokin:
i dont mind losing online play, do you paste all files in their mirroring folders? eg attribute into attribute?, weapon into weapon? and is their a tutorial or someone i can contact to merge AI Edit: okay i got all units in game, how do i get the ai to work, they all just sit there and do nothing [COLOR=red]Merged[/COLOR] - SSA
Like IBBoard said, you don't get it to work. To get it to work, you will need to basically do what the skirmish AI team do, and create AI for the Steel Legion. Which is very hard to do, which is why there is only one main AI team about.
i discovered that the mods may be shirmish ai 1.7 compatable, i hope that works, but for now im using the ai from the tyranid mod as it contains loaders for all my race, and now i just need to rename some stuff for my loader to work Edit: nup 1.75 crashes, got all races but steel legion working, also need a name, just calling it super mod just now [COLOR=red]Merged (again)[/COLOR] - SSA
