OK but how do install a mod?

#1 Post by rss0900 » Apr 09 2014

I don't see instructions with some of these mods, for example I'm trying to install **Cold War Conversion - Hullu Hevonen for SR1936. Once downloaded it has a Supreme Ruler 1936 folder which I would assume you just drop right over the installed one and overwrite any files. But that does not work as any scenario I try to run just locks the game up. Is there a guide or help somewhere on how to install mods?

Edit - also downloaded Fistalis' mod for 2020 and put it in my 1936 install. The scenarios show up but the game crashes with these instead of just locking up.

Thats odd i just tested it without issue. Alls you do is unzip it and paste it into the 1936 folder. Make sure you get all the files.

I uninstalled the game and removed all files, then reinstalled and only installed your mod for 2020. It's working now ... I don't know??? I'd say it's kind of hard to mess up a copy and paste but evidently I must have. All is good after reinstall and it's working, so .... thank for the quick reply.
