freeboy, could you please be more specific on that?
What do you need?
Are you planning to create a mod, or install it?

For the STORM mod, you will need a completely new install of ToF 1.1. Just copy your current ToF beta install to a new folder. Install the STORM in the new data folder.

So most probably you have to overwrite everything within the data folder

go to the slitherine folder in program files, right click on the beta version of the game, copy, then paste.

You'll end up with a Time of Fury Beta folder and a Time of Fury Beta - Copy folder.

Go into the Time of Fury Beta - Copy folder and overwrite the data folder there with the STORM data folder.

While in the Time of Fury Beta - Copy folder, right click on tof.exe to make a shortcut. Drag that shortcut out onto your desktop and rename it to something like TOF-STORM. Then to play the STORM mod, you click on that shortcut.

I am hoping I can have two different betas. one modded and the other unmodded?
And how will the launcher know where to pull from.. seems It should be a completely new install for the registry to see it, not just a copy from one folder to another ? any help would be helpful ur appreciaated! lol

If you do this step, you will be assured of starting with the Mod. Use your other Tof desktop icon to start the vanilla beta.

I have three ToF shortcuts on my desktop. One for 1.0, one for 1.1 Beta, and one fore 1.1 Beta STORM. I'm willing to bet that in a future patch of ToF, they will come up with a better way to run mods (hint hint).

here's the best way to backup your original files without making 2 installations of the game:

1. make a folder called backup - anywhere
2. find your 1939 grand campaign folder in scenarios and copy it to backup folder
3. copy all GUI files (with resolutions) to backup folder
4. copy all unit counter folders in data/gfx to backup folder (actually you only need land_units within the folders, that's the only file that changes)
5. from data/events, copy: events_02_germany, events_07_finland, events_09_england, events_53_usa and territorial_demands_soviets_romania to backup folder

If you wish to return to your original game, simply return those backup files to their original locations


I tried copying and creating another scenario but it was too buggy. That's why I had to overwrite the default grand campaign
