I didn't make it!
I downloaded some mods and did every thing in the readme files.I started up the mods with the shortcut files the game started up and when I went to play the mod didn't change anything.I tried 3 different mods one was for Regular Empire at war and the other 2 were for forces of corruption.
are you playing on a pc with vista or xp
if its vista you have to remake the links for the mods
Ya i made a tutorial on how to do this too. Galaxy of Chaos Mod for Star Wars: Empire at War: Forces of Corruption Making a Shortcut for a Mod. v2 tutorial - Mod DB
What path are you installing it on? if you installed it on a different drive, it may be incorrect. Also, look in the mod's folder it should have mods\your mod\data if it's mods\your_mod\your mod\data or something like that, it won't work
