I am having a problem with the Patched vesion of legacy. When I install the Aftermath in a Patched version I get the old Stock Menu? When we install the Aftermath in a unpatched version it is as it should be with the Menu Screen with missions and 1 on 1 etc... The reason I asked is because when I /we play the unpached version we have to use Lan because when you use Internet it will ask for a New download patch...But, the problem with Lan is we are always logged out after just about 5 mins ..? I would like to know why I get the Old Stock Menu when I install Aftermath over a Patched Version?
Not sure, Gamemaster may know the answer as he knows more on the MP side of things then I would.
A possible solution is to do everything as you have but also install a second Public Beta to a different folder. This will install just the mod contents into a folder for you. You dont need to download the mod again, the exe can install as many times as you want.
Once you done that, place the UI folder from the Public Beta install onto the install where the old stock menu comes up and see if that gives the Aftermath menu's back.
Hey, I have tried all that and it didn't work... I have munipulated UI folders before and moded them with other mods just for fun and a different look with several moded ui's at once...and textures.. But I can't seem to do anything with the patched version Aftermath.... It should be as easy as adding the UI folder alone to the moded version to change the menu but it dosen't..i don't know why because the UI is being used in the unpatched version.I should just be able to move that one . Know matter what I try I can seem to get the modded version menu..????? in the patched legacy??? I can't emagine what I am missing..But all said and done it should download no different than it does in the unpatched???? It should all be the same...????:confused:
They should work, its working on your unpatched install fine but not so on your patched. The UI bits, mine use a new set of dds files, unless you dont have them in an install you got all your other UI bits in that the only reason why that part wont work.
As for the patched version, do you have any of the ui files somewhere else in Legacy's file? That has happened to someone else, they had the mainmenu.xml from the mission scripter aswell as the Aftermath mainmenu.xml all in the same directory.
I will ask Gamemaster and see if he knows, he has dealt with MP more than I have.
Well I am officially embarrassed ! I found and extra file? The patch had some how had its on folder! Don't ask....:eek: anyway I think everthing is as it should be....Thanks for your help. How do i get in find Gamemaster?
All the menus are now there. But it will still ask for a patch or say no patch update when you try to use the Internet instead of Lan? And the above should read how do I get intouch with Gamemaster?
For MP, dont use the normal way on getting on for Legacy as it causes alot of problems. I spoke to Gamemaster (he very busy at moment with other stuff) and he said if you ever want to play Legacy MP then use the Hamachi servers. TLG and UUM use the Hamachi servers to play their mods on with no problems.
We tried Lan/Hamachi but, I/We keep getting logged out early.Even with the old stock version.Thats why we though we would try the internet connect.. A screen comes up on both ends after about 5 mins telling us it can't find our log-in something or another..I forget exactly what it said...If anyone eles has had this problem with any mod on Lan let me know..I/We don't have this with the UU using Hamachi/Lan....
Your best bet will be to head over to the OPTG forums and ask over there in the Aftermath section, two of the people over there know more about Hamchi than I do as Ive never played MP Legacy at all.
Someone will get in touch with you shortly over there. If your not registered over at OPTG you will have to sign up
