Hi Captain. Thanks for the info. That is pretty much straight forward as what we have already been doing JOTR. Since I made that post I have noticed that I may not have installed the AW2 Mod and Update correctly. Things I did:
- Insured I had JO:TR already installed (Not from Combined Arms Steam download)
- Downloaded both the AW2 Mod and the Update.
- Installed the AW2 full mod
- Installed the update
When I launch AW2 from the shortcut the window opens, but when I click on link button to run AW2 on the bottom left of the screen, it doesn’t like the “jointops.exe” file. The launch window will open but I don’t seem to be able to activate AW2 from there. It recommended to launch it manually, but that didn’t work either. I get the same error. I am running Windows 7 if that means anything. Any idea where I may have goofed from the above info? I uninstalled AW2 Mod, but I still have the downloaded install files to try it again.
The above steps exactly right. That normally works fine.
Does your JOTR work like it should and starts up fine?
Try to go into the AW2 folder and start update.exe. That should startup the AW2 launcher, got to “Game settings” and choose “AW2 MED mod” and choose the exe version 17.1.9. Click “Save settings”.
Finally click “Start AW2”.
If that does not work, then maybe there are some things that are not installed right. Maybe a folder permission issue that is causing an installation issue with some files.
Try to uninstall and reinstall AW2 into another place that is not under “c:\program files\…” but somewhere outside into another folder on a drive D.
