Just fire .meg extractor, it should open in EaW directory. If you want to mod FoC, you have to move to it's directory, then find relevant files you want to unpack, select it and voilla :D

Quick tips: An easy way to make new units is to copy code of an existing unit ex: You could use Ackbar's Home One, to make a Mc-80 Another way to get to know the code is to look through it and study it, like at school If you cant figure it out ask for help, or look at master sticky or tutorial's For simple hero's alll you need is: Yes Other moding tools are MTD Editor String Editor Eaw/Foc Mapping Program Gmax or somthing similar like Photoshop and if you can waste $300 you should get 3ds Max 7 or 8 glad to help pm me if you need anything else
