Modders Welcome!

Modders welcome indeed!
  • We designed this game to be as modder-friendly as was feasibly possible
  • While Head-to-Head play uses encrypted files, against computer, what you see is what you can mod.
  • Use the JoneSoft Generic Mod Enabler (JSGME) manager, included in game install.

With JSGME you can safely activate and remove your mods while testing them out. Should anything go wrong, just reverse any change with a click of a mouse.

JSGME, use it. You have been warned.
  • A quick how-to on JSGME is available HERE
  • JSGME User Guide (JSGMEUG.pdf) is availabale at \Tools\JSGME folder.
