Is there an easy way to install that mod, I can't get it to work. It says you just extract it to the folder, but that doesn't work. And do you need version 1 before version 1.1?

Unfortunately, there is no easy way of installing it cause as you have noticed it doesn't put the files where they are meant to go!! :(

The best thing to do is extract it to a temporary folder & install it manually!!

No, you don't need to instal v1.0 first.

[COLOR=skyblue]Well, thanks for the tip and 'opinion' of the installation, Porty. :p I thought that was a GOOD WAY to make the mod installation good, but some did it well, some didn't do it well. So, I made another version of the downloading for ALL who are having 'prob' with the installation(the NEWBIES I will say here). I already sent it to the site a couple days ago, and it should be up soon(or sooner) - this is NOT a patch mind you, just a REPLACEMENT of the 'zip' files. Again, sorry for any probs a few have with this mod.[/COLOR] ;)

Actually, I didn't give an opinion here, just stated the facts.

Personally I didn't have a problem with it as I have been installing mods manually for years, however as you have stated, many who come here are new to the game & modding and may not know how to do it.

I assume that it is for these people that you placed the mod in a self-installer and IMO that is a good thing but it is also my opinion that if you are going to make it a self-installer, then that is what it does, "installs the mod", not just put some of the files where they are meant to go & whack the rest in the main folder for the user to deal with. :p

[COLOR=burlywood]Ok, the AUTO-INSTALLATION for my mod is AVAILABLE for the 'newbies', but I hope you read my message of 'modding' before you download. It's a good tip I learned myself. [/COLOR] :D
