Guys

If the forcepool is altered do I have to get my opponent to do the same changes or does the data automaticly get transfered?

Sorry for such a basic Question

Regards

Yes -- both players should be using the same data files. You can create a separate directory for your modified files, so you don't have to overwrite the original game files, though. For example:

- Make a directory "MyMod" (or whatever name you wish) under the main install directory (usually C:\Matrix Games\Close Combat Last Stand Arnhem").

- Make a MyMod\Data\Base\ directory.

- Drop your modified force pool file in that directory.

- Make a shortcut for CCE.EXE to start the game with the command line option "/D MyMod".

- Start the game using the new shortcut.

The /D option will cause the game to load your modified MyMod\Data\Base files instead of the stock files in <install dir>\Data\Base. If a needed file is not present under \MyMod\ the stock file will be used.

If both you and your opponent have this setup, and use the /D option to start up the game, you'll be able to play multi-player with modified data files.

Be aware that /D switch mods won't work on player matching sites like gameranger.


if you need or want to use Gameranger use ModSwap..
