Problems with Metal Mod v1.0 - 1/27/2013 5:25:11 PM

Hi

I've downloaded the mod swap plug in version of the above and am having problems getting it to work.

When I try to plug the file in I get the following error message:
Error: This mod requires Close Combat 2. You must install CC2 before you can use this mod.

I am assuming CC2 is irrelevant and I don't actually have to install it???

I have LSA patched with the latest beta version 5.60.53b.

Thanks to anyone who can shed some light on this.

Regards
Matthew

It might be the ini file. Can you post any text that's in it? Might need to update some text. Show some screenshots?

Firstly, thank you for taking the trouble to reply.

Now I need to show my ignorance, I know what an INI file does, but it ends there - where do I find it and do I need anything particular to open it to get at the text?

I can, however, give you a screenshot of the error message, if that helps???? Or maybe not???

Thanks

Matthew

PS Watching your LSA GJS development post with interest...

Where did you get the file? I can download it and have a look.

Straight off the Matrix CC LSA Community site at http://closecombat.matrixgames.com/LSA/LSAmods.html

That's why it's so puzzling!

Thanks

Matthew

2=1
3=1
4=1
5=1
6=0

Thanks WoT - that's fixed it!

So am I right that it should say #=1 for each Close Combat Game you have installed, as my file read (before amending to 2=1):

[General]
LastVersion=2

[InstalledVersions]
0=0
1=0
2=0
3=0
4=0
5=1
6=0
7=0
8=0
9=0

[InstalledLocations]
2=C:\Matrix Games\Close Combat Last Stand Arnhem
3=C:\Program Files\Close Combat\Close Combat III
4=C:\Matrix Games\Close Combat Wacht am Rhein
5=C:\Matrix Games\Close Combat The Longest Day
[InstalledToRegKey]
2=SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft Games\Close Combat\2.00
3=SOFTWARE\CSO\Close Combat\3.50
4=SOFTWARE\Strategic Simulations Inc.\Close Combat\4.00
5=SOFTWARE\Mattel Interactive\Close Combat\5.00
6=

[EXEFileNames]
2=CCE.exe
3=CC3.exe
4=CCE.exe
5=CCE.exe
6=CCE.exe

Correct

The [InstalledToRegKey] section, I don't think matters - not tested though
