And mod is now up! Below are the install instructions (I've also edited the first post of this thread to have install instructions at the end of the first post).
I'll put up some more detail as I get time, may be tomorrow. In the meantime, feel free to set it up and give it a whirl! Note that the AI has not been developed for this, it will use basic AGEOD AI, but from my experience the current AI in this mod doesn't provide much of a challenge - it's really meant to be a PBEM mod with 2 or 3 players. (In PBEM it's coming out very nicely though!)Installation InstructionsThis mod requires both Alea Jacta Est and World War One (Gold) to be installed to play!
1 - If you have not installed Alea Jacta Est yet, please do so first.
2 - Make sure Alea Jacta Est is patched to official patch 1.01 (can be found here http://ageoddl.telechargement.fr/3rdParty/Various/Patch_AJE_v1.01.rar
3 - Download my mod file WW1_MainFiles_v202.zip
at this location: http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?nb2dz0w2se5i4ws
4 - Open the mod zip file, there is a single folder called WW1
inside. You need to extract this folder to your main Alea Jacta Est directory (typically found at either C:\Games\Alea Jacta Est
or C:\Program Files\Alea Jacta Est
- it will be the directory where the AJE.exe file is located and there will also be a folder called AJE
in this location.
5 - Once the files are extracted, go to the directory where you have World War One Gold installed (usually either C:\Games\World War One Gold
or C:\Program Files\World War One Gold
). Once you are in the main World War One Gold directory, navigate to World War One Gold\Data\Graph\Map\GoldRegions
- there should be a large number of .bmp picture files in here. Copy all files in this directory.
6 - Go back to where you extracted the WW1
folder in Step 4. From here, navigate to WW1\Graphics\Regions
and paste all the .bmp files you copied in Step 5 to this directory. There are 4 files that will ask if you want to overwrite them, choose NO
when prompted (if you choose Yes or Yes to All, it's not a big deal, it will just cause one region that has a rail link not to show properly on the map).
7 - Go back to the location where you extracted WW1
folder in Step 4. There is a file here called ModPath.ini
. Open this with a text editor such as Notepad or Wordpad. It contains one line of text that should read AJE
, simply change this to WW1
and save. (for future reference, when you want to switch back to playing AJE, simply change this file contents back to AJE - very simple to switch back and forth).
8 - Launch Alea Jacta Est and you should see the new mod kicking in - you're all set to go!
