I'm a newbie in moding, deciding to enhace a bit the experience of one of my old favorite teenagehood games, MTW2. Is nice to see there are so many fans here, and the information and the lore provided in this forum is outstanding, and allow me to say a big thank you to all of you, contribuitors!
Of course, I've ran into some issues with moding, whic are as follows:
1) I wanted to make a mod on the grand campaign map, with several new factions. At first I installed Gigantus's Bare Geomod (great tool !!!) and New_Faction tutorial, but when i run Copy_UnitFiles.bat, it says that MSVCP71.dll is missing. But it's NOT missing, it's in the game, I tried to copy it into the new faction folder, in system32 folder... Also, the unpacker in the "tools" folder results in the same error. Any ideas anyone?
2) I tried making some changes to the kingdoms grand campaign mod 3.0, since it is very similar to what I want, but it doesn't works with Geomod. At first, it asked for some missing files, which I have simply copied them from the Bare Geomod folder but then I got some other errors, as follows:
It seems to me that Geomod cannot work on mods other than Bare Geomod, because the info (names, characters etc.) inside the mod's files ndo not match to those "inside"Geomod tool
My question is, is it possible to use Geomod on other mods, and how? (well..of course after I will reinstall KGC 'coz I messed it up tring to do things manually )
Thanks in advance for reading this!
