Ok I just downloaded the night shift mod and found I can't use the installer, it comes up with a message telling me, I need patch 1.41 (which I have) and winter assault (also have). I've notice this is an bug with the installer after reading some of the posts under the readme on the DOW:filefront page, and from some of the links there to the mod site, I also notice people had said they had got round the bug, but no one said how :confused:, so anyhelp would be greatful :).
You have to check your registry. Hkey_local_marchine/software/THQ/Dawn of War -> DawnOfWar_ver?? should say you have version 1.41. If it doesn't you can edit it so it does. WARNING.....messing with your registry if you don't know what you are doing can mess up your pc in a big way. If you are happy editing it then that's the answer you're looking for. Good luck but don't blame me if it all ends in tears ;)
Thanks I'll look into that but I'm pretty sure it will say 1.41, I think the problem is that I have it installed on another drive and not C:, I was wondering if there was a way for me to open the file in a window and not the installer (which btw looks rather cool IMO). I think if the Idea you say doesn't work I'll try making a mock DOW on my C: drive, then just move the night shift file to the other. Ok so I tried installing the game on the C: drive then used the installer still no go, though I realise I'm upto 1.5 patch, so maybe its to do with that? though I do know that 1.5 doesn't (to my knowledge) affect mods, but it may affect the installer for this? Edit: does anyone know a way I can get intouch with the modder?
Post to Palii's thread here: http://forums.relicnews.com/showthread.php?t=93214 He's normally very helpful although this is more an installation problem than anything to do with his mod. One thing's for sure, if he can help he will...top bloke :D
Cheers thanks for the help, I do understand that its more of a problem with the installer and there is nothing wrong with the mod, I'll ask there and hopefully be playing the mod soon.
Edit: ok I found the problem I changed the reg after reading the thread (should of tried it in the first place, after you said), but as I said I'm at 1.5 which turns out was the problem the installer only looks for patch 1.41 nothing else.
1.5 does not break mods, that shouldn't be an issue here.
Nope there is no problem with the mod with 1.5 it's the installer that has the problem. Well I just want to say I got the mod insatlled and working, I have also started work on a night map (actually it was just a normal map I had started to begin with, but I wanted it to be night in the first place).
Yeah, if the installer checks for 1.41 and only 1.41 (even if the Mod can work with 1.5) then that'd cause a problem. Things like that are the reason that XP has compatability mode to feed older Windows version data to apps that check it and then choke when they get something they don't expect!
The thing I dont under stand I have 250gb to spare for memory. And when I try to install that mod it says I dont have enough.:confused:
Most defentlly on my side an:wtf:
How are your hard disks set up? Is it one huge disk or a couple of smaller partitions? And which drive are your games on?
