TITLE: Battletech: The Capellan Solution v1.5 BETA WEBSITE : http://www.battletechmodproductions.com/btgenerals/ FORUM: http://battletechmodproductions.com/cgi-bin/ikonboard/ikonboard.cgi?act=SC;c=10 FILENAME : TCS Alpha 1.5.EXE VERSION: 1.5 DATE: 052/2004 AUTHOR: Battletech Mod Productions - Generals Team CONTACT : [email protected] [email protected] Welcome Commander, Thank you for Downloading the Command & Conquer Generals "The Capellan Solution" mod. This mod is based on the BattleTech storylines and tactical information.
Please take notice that this software is still in development and thus is considered a "Beta".
With this file you find several other files that you will need to play the mod.
- Make sure ALL other MOD's have been deleted FIRST! This is to ensure that no problems occur. - You must have version 1.7 of Generals installed first for this MOD to work. - Run the Installer exe file.
OK, now you’r almost ready to go, but please take notice of the following:
Since we are a small mod team we would greatly appreciate any help from the gamers out there who make our work worthwhile. This is not the final version of this mod, we plan to release in 4 steps (revised due to schedule). The first major release contained all the basic units and a working AI for multiplayer online and skirmish purposes. This release contains most of the new factions and units as well as additional balancing, and the next release with all the Upgrades and Generals abilities completed plus some of the buildings and the rest of the units, and the last release will contain all the Buildings and the new Campaigns, which will be released in stages, depending on the speed of development.
Along the way we want to fix bugs and refine the units and game balance, and this is where we could certainly use your help. There are still bugs and small errors in the game which we might have overlooked and of course any suggestions and tips are welcome. Should you run into a bug or error we would greatly appreciate it if you could report this to us, either by mail of you could visit our forum at http://battletechmodproductions.com/cgi-bin/ikonboard/ikonboard.cgi?act=SC;c=10
And not to forget we could use your input for the AI, which is still under development.
Additional Troubleshooting We have a troubleshooting section in the forums, so please read the FAQ there if you encounter any problems before asking for help.
