I downloaded both BCMP and BCMI and I can't get them to work right. On BCMP when I try to make a mod like it has with some other people it gives me a black screen and the gold arrow mouse cursor on startup. For BCMI for some reason when I go to download a mod (EX: the defian class) the file will show up on the desktop but not in the BCMI file list. Would someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong and how to use BCMP and BCMI to install downloaded mods to save me some futrue agrivation. I've never tried using bc mods until the last month or 2 which should explain my lack of knowledge on these programs. Thanks for any and all help.:)

check the stickied threads... there is one that explains how to deal with the BSOD (black screen cursor) and how to obtain a console report which describes what is going wrong... there is another FAQ thread, with the first post that links you to BCFiles, to a file called Modding For Dummies, in which is a tutorial about using BCMP and BCMI is contained... also, try the search function... if all those fail, then post again :)

What I mean as a problem with BCMP and BCMI is I can't get any mods I've downloaded to show up in them. EX: defiant class. If you could tell me how to download a mod so I can install it with either program it would be a GREAT help.

Most of the time you don't even need to use BCMP to install ships...

they may already come with a scripts\custom\ships file

just be sure when you are in BC that you turn on the mutators.

My prob is I don't know how the world to even install the new mods or even how to install one using BCMI or BCMP. If one of you was to tell me how to install a mod using BCMI or BCMP, which I would like to use if possible, I could get up and running with some good ships like the defiant. That's really all I need.

please use the search function - it has been explained many many times... also, check that FAQ stickied thread i mentioned in Modding Forum... it points to a tutorial that you can download that explains everything you need to know about installing ships ingame... also, i could have sworn there is a built-in tutorial with BCMP or BCMI?
