Newcomer-Playing Mods
« on: January 25, 2009, 04:18:33 AM »
Hey, guys,

I apologize for the noobness, but I am not able to see how you play any given mod...I'm sure I'm missing something easy here.

For instance, I load FFVT3R, then I load the FFX app, its patch, & its newest update, then I load EFX, then I load in the Crisis mod. OK, everything installs fine. Now, I have a new FFX launch icon, but how do I get into the Crisis game? I don't see an exe in the Crisis folder to launch the game. Also don't have any program manager choices for Crisis except Uninstall.

Again, I know this is something foundational I'm overlooking.

Thank you very much,

DB

When you use a mod, just make a new shortcut to the game. Go to the shortcut properties and check the "Target" line, where it sends you to ffvttr.exe. After the directory, there should be the following:
Code: [Select]
-game [mod data file here] -log  So if you installed to the default directory and you're using the Crisis mod, and all the data has been installed into a folder labeled "crisis", the Target line should read:
Code: [Select]
"C:/Program Files/Irrational Games/Freedom Force vs. the Third Reich/ffvt3r.exe" -game crisis -log Just in case, the "Start In" box should also read
Code: [Select]
"C:/Program Files/Irrational Games/Freedom Force vs. the Third Reich/ffvt3r.exe" Hope this helps!
