I have installed the Elite Units into Panzer Corps,and it works great,but the Big Units don't appear-I unzipped the Big Units into same folder in game-or do I unzip them elsewhere? Any help would be appreciated,guys.Thank you,Peter.

The big unit pics go in the bigunits folder inside the UI folder. So the path looks something like Panzer Corps/UI/bigunits.

Or if swapping in a mod using GME, it would be something like Panzer Corps/Mods/{name of mod}/UI/bigunits.

My apologies. From your OP, I thought that maybe you had put the big pics in the wrong folder.

I can answer your last question though. The big pics will show up in the purchase screen (top right corner when a unit is selected) and also the unit info screen in-game (when you right-click on a unit). So just like the regular game.

Back to your OP: Are we talking about Airbornemongo's Elite Units Mod? And are you using the Generic Mod Enabler to swap in the mod? If the answer to both of those questions is yes, then you've got a problem I probably can't help with, because it should work without having to manually move files or folders.

I would offer one suggestion: go to http://slitherine.com/ . Their Panzer Corps forum is much more active than here and there are several people over there who could most likely help you. Good luck

Hi mate-well im just using the basic elite units pack-it shows all the comaflauged units,ect,and seems to work well,but the big units just do not sow up.i don't use the generic mod enabler,as I find its a bloody nightmare to use,with windows 8.And,when I downloaded the new sealions campaign,i had to re do all the stuff again-otherwise I had all the plain grey imags of aircraft,ect.and the basic sounds,so I had to overdo the sounds again too

I understand your reluctance to use the GME. I only recently started using it after many years of modding

But any updates will overwrite all or most of your modifications to the game. Each and every time. Found that out the hard way.

So, if I understand correctly, you're moving the files from the mod download and overwriting the game files, which is the way I used to do it. The only thing I can tell you is that the bigunit pics folder is in a different location than the data and graphics files.

Another question just occurred to me. Are all of the bigunit pics not showing or just the ones for the new elite units?

Hi-None of the big units show-Everything else shows,the camoflauged units,ect,the aircraft skins,ect.I did everything correctly,unzipped it all into a new folder,so I could drop all the files into the appropriate folders.It's a bit of a mystery.Thanks for your patience mate.Peter.

Hi-re your comment,about other updates overriding mods-Maybe its the Redux sound mod that is interfering with it? Peter.

As long as the other mod isn't using a custom efx.pzdat file, RSM Redux shouldn't be a problem. :)

As VPaulus said, the sound mod is not likely the problem. With the way you are manually modding the program, the only thing that would overwrite without you knowing would be the official game updates. I believe those overwrite all game files to the latest version, thereby undoing your work.

I downloaded the Elite Units mod and looked it over. It has only bigunit pics for the new units so if you just replaced the original bigunits folder with the modded one, you'd be missing a lot of pics. Actually, you'd be missing all the vanilla pics. But if you dragged all the Elite pics and dropped them into the vanilla bigunits folder, then you would be ok. So I'm not sure how none of the pics are showing up. I would expect to see at least the vanilla pics or the new elite pics but not both to be missing.

Last thing I can think of is to check your path. Starting with wherever your game is located, the path should look like this (because you're modding manually and not using GME):
Panzer Corps/UI/bigunits.
Follow that path and look in the bigunits folder and see if all the pics are there. Best of luck

PS: Earlier you mentioned the Sea Lion campaign. I don't have that yet so I'm not sure what the file path would be for that. So if you're playing that, maybe there's another bigunit folder hiding somewhere?
