ya File Checker is bad bad bad... so is the Menus options - never use them...
no i go to run bcmp and it says it is missing files and wont load i tried redownloading it and it still says this. i would like to get a few more ships on this game instaed of the 16 stock ships, bit of a borg fan and im hatin it cuz of no borg ships on it.
well then how do i get some ships into the game????
Quick and easy way - download KM and stick that into a clean install you have patched. No need for BCMP and gives you a few borg ships.
More difficult way - create your own plugins. Some ships have their plugins included, so BCMP isn't required to create them. If you copy and paste and alter the plugins (they just point to certain .py files and once you've learnt which files are where, you'll be fine). Once you've done it once, this becomes an easy way.
Third option - find the ships that have the plugins and stick them straight in.
HOWEVER. You still need to put the foundation in before any mods (unless the mod is KM, in which case the foundation is included), this requires either BCMP, BCMI or a search in the 'Outdated Abyss' of BCFiles for the old standalone foundation.
The problem with bcmp missing its core files could be due to a new .net framework upgrade you haven't got? Run windows update to see if this is the case. Alternatively, do a search on these forums, where many missing bcmp core files have been found...

Simple, to open a Rar file download WinRar (search on Google) or get WinAce to open any type of archive imaginable. You have to pay for WinAce after its trial period though so thats kind of a downer.
hmm ok i added the rar file into the bc folder and then i played it it had no extra stuff on it but i did find a "muator" button in the config section that had "stock ships, stock systems, and extra ships and mods" buttons,but with those clicked still no extras
ok that above statement no longer goes for i have made a fresh install of bc and if ANYONE would want to guide me with a LIVE step by step process of puttin these darn mods to use i would appricate it grealty and bless you with a thousand butterfingers, or i will hire the local nerd with the promise of a girlfriend beyond his means.but the other help would be nice for i am about to burn this game.
