hey guys, i searched the forums high and low for this, but anyway, im just trying to get my feet wet in modding for generals.

what ive done so far is extracted the ini files out of INI.big, and edited the following files as i wanted...

CommandSet.ini and FactionUnit.ini

with the proper editors, now when i tried it out in game it works, but that was overwriteing the default files, now what i am trying to do is add those 2 files as

Data\INI\Object\FactionUnit.ini and Data\INI\CommandSet.ini

in a file called shmick.big.... i did that, but when i place the file in: My Documents\Command and Conquer Generals Data

and run the shortcut as: "..\generals.exe" -mod shmick.big

the game loads but the changes i made dont show up... what am i doing wrong...

no cuz when you dl a mod... and install it, all you do is add the BIG file to the

My Documents\Command and Conquer Generals Data

folder and add -mod yourmod.big to the end of your shortcut

so what am i doing wrong... and like i said, the actual file work, because if i just overwrite the game files, it works... i just cant put the 2 files as a separate mod!

=( help me out!!!!!

when making a mod, i thought all you have to do is make a .BIG with all of the mod'd files in it, put it in the documents\generals data folder and add -mod yourmod.big to your shortcut....

what other steps are ther????

are you telling me to put my shmick.BIG in programfiles\generals?

but then it isnt as easy to play with out it in BIG format, because all you have to do with BIG's is add -mod shmick.big to a shortcut...
