I just downloaded the EAW MapEditor, and it says "Original installation of SWEAW not found. You must have the original game installed to use these tools." Then it has options for "Yes" and "No." Is this because I have it in the Star Wars Best of PC game? Can I install something that is the "Original Game?" I want to mod!

Fear. A mod isn't just about changing the way the game plays. If you create new or edit existing maps your still adding to or changing the way the game runs, so in effect ANY change is a MODification.

It's not just the 'best of' version of EaW that this happens with. I purchased the Australian DVD re-release (they were originally released only on CD's) and the map editor refuses to recognise that I have either EaW or FoC installed, and so won't install itself.

I asked about the problem on the official petro forums, but they just don't care.

Yes I agree, EAW and FOC editor do not detect the folders from international language from game.

But you can copy all the files installed by map editor to the correct game folder from your version.

No, we can't. The map editor installer says that neither EaW nor FoC are installed, and therefore aborts the map editor installation.

Uh... So you can't mod with the Best of PC version? Yes, I now what modding is and what it does. Suggest moidding for any other Star Wars game?
