Installation Guide

Post by DaFranker on Fri Feb 06, 2009 7:28 pm

Mod Installation

To install the *.Big version of the mod: (Recommended Method)

1 > Install Homeworld2.

2 > Patch Homeworld2 up to version 1.1 (use the in-game menu or find the patch somewhere).

3 > Download the no-cd crack from one of the below links and put it in "C:\Program Files\Sierra\Homeworld2\Bin\Release" (make sure to backup the original file first).

Mirror #1
Mirror #2

4 > If you haven't already done so, download the latest version of the mod and put the *.Big file in "C:\Program Files\Sierra\Homeworld2\Data".

Mirror #1
(More mirrors will be available once version 0.8 is released.)

5 > Finally, make a copy of the Homeworld2 shortcut on your desktop (or wherever it's located) and right-click it, select "Properties", then add the following text at the end of the "Target" field (where it says "C:\...\...\Homeworld2\bin\release\homeworld2.exe"): -mod Sgmod075a.big

If there are quotes in the "Target" field, make sure that the above command is added AFTER the last quote, and there must be a space between the quote and the hyphen.

To play the mod, simply double-click the modified shortcut and the mod should start.

To install the archived version of the mod (not *.Big): (For Advanced Users)

1 > Install Homeworld2

2 > Patch Homeworld2 up to version 1.1 (use the in-game menu or find the patch somewhere).

3 > Open the *.rar or *.zip archive that you downloaded (using PowerArchiver, WinRar, Winzip or the default Windows Extractor).

4 > Extract all files contained within the archive to your "C:\Program Files\Sierra\Homeworld2\Data" folder, and make sure that the extraction software you use preserves the correct pathnames (i.e. all files will go to \ai\, \art\, \scripts\, etc. instead of being dumped directly into \Data\).

5 > Download the no-cd crack from one of the below links and put it in "C:\Program Files\Sierra\Homeworld2\Bin\Release" (make sure to backup the original file first).

Mirror #1
Mirror #2

6 > Finally, make a copy of the Homeworld2 shortcut on your desktop (or wherever it's located) and right-click it, select "Properties", then add the following text at the end of the "Target" field (where it says "C:\...\...\Homeworld2\bin\release\homeworld2.exe"): -mod Sgmod075a.big

If there are quotes in the "Target" field, make sure that the above command is added AFTER the last quote, and there must be a space between the quote and the hyphen.

To play the mod, simply double-click the modified shortcut and the mod should start.

Notes:

To play online with other players, you will need the VPN software called Hamachi. Once you've downloaded and installed it, head over to this forum post from the French forums and pick a network to join. You will need to be on the same network as another person to play with that person. Once you're on the same network, use the LAN multiplayer option in Homeworld2 to play together.

Have fun, and see you on hamachi!

What you have to do is right-click and select properties, and once in there, YOU add (manually) "-mod SGmod075a.big" (without the quotes) to the text INSIDE the "Target" field, so that instead of saying
"C:\Program Files\Relic\Homeworld2\bin\release\homeworld2.exe"
it says
"C:\Program Files\Relic\Homeworld2\bin\release\homeworld2.exe" -mod Sgmod075a.big

EDIT:
+changed some wording in original post for clarity

No, those are known bugs that will be fixed with the next release of the mod. They work in some specific cases for some people, but we'll fix them. This isn't an installation problem, it's a problem on our side.

Well, of course if you're not using the 0.75a version, that would be the wrong filename '-.-

maybe you have downloaded an older/other version of the mod. But you can install the mod in folders, too. Just drop them in your Homeworld2\Data\ Directory and add instead of "-mod Sgmod075a.big" as commandlineparameter the following without the quotes: "-overrideBigFile"
There's a how-to for mods in folders, too. Just search it but my explanation should help you for now.

Greetings

UPDATE: Oh well I found it xD
We were both blind... just look above: There are two headlines. One with the description "(*.big file)" and the other one with the description "(not *.big file)" (or sth. like that). Just look there for a good explanation

To install the archived version of the mod (not *.Big): (For Advanced Users)

1 > Install Homeworld2

2 > Patch Homeworld2 up to version 1.1 (use the in-game menu or find the patch somewhere).

3 > Open the *.rar or *.zip archive that you downloaded (using PowerArchiver, WinRar, Winzip or the default Windows Extractor).

4 > Extract all files contained within the archive to your "C:\Program Files\Sierra\Homeworld2\Data" folder, and make sure that the extraction software you use preserves the correct pathnames (i.e. all files will go to \ai\, \art\, \scripts\, etc. instead of being dumped directly into \Data\).

5 > Download the no-cd crack from one of the below links and put it in "C:\Program Files\Sierra\Homeworld2\Bin\Release" (make sure to backup the original file first).

Mirror #1
Mirror #2

6 > Finally, make a copy of the Homeworld2 shortcut on your desktop (or wherever it's located) and right-click it, select "Properties", then add the following text at the end of the "Target" field (where it says "C:\...\...\Homeworld2\bin\release\homeworld2.exe"): -mod Sgmod075a.big

If there are quotes in the "Target" field, make sure that the above command is added AFTER the last quote, and there must be a space between the quote and the hyphen.

To play the mod, simply double-click the modified shortcut and the mod should start.

Just follow these steps....

The first Kobe Shoes came out in 1985, and the rest is history. Nike Shox NZ on-court success and immense popularity off the court helped him create the Nike Shox R4 brand. Overall, the design of this Nike Shox Running Shoes shoe is very attractive and would definitely encourage Nike shoe collectors out there to own one for their collection. Luckily, Wholesale Nike Basketball Shoes still sells this stuff over the internet. So start browsing eBay now to get a pair of this Nike Basketball Sneakers.
