So the issue is that some players have added the TT Mod to their main build. It needs to go in . . . My Documents/My Games/FieldOfGlory2/MULTIPLAYER

Just a simple "drag and drop" exercise. :D

Thanks Pete, I am back at my PC now, and can confirm that is the correct destination.

Just for future reference, experience has shown that all TT Mod problems like this are due to two possible causes:

1) The player has pasted the TT mod into the wrong folder, usually the main build.

or

2) The download has been corrupted. Unfortunately, with a file of this size that seems to happen occasionally. So if the player is certain he has the mod in his My Documents/My Games/FieldOfGlory2/MULTIPLAYER folder and is still experiencing problems, he should delete it and download the mod again.

cheers

I've downloaded both the multiplayer and battles mod and put them in the correct folder as described so unless I have a corrupted download guessing the issue is with my opponent. I only had multiplayer installed before but I think the instructions said we needed battles for the tournament so installed that as well. IMC if you are reading can you confirm you have your mods in the correct folder. I can also see on the challenge server some people seem to have different versions installed. Thanks Adam

You don't need the SP versions of the TT Mod, but if you have installed them in their correct folders they will have no effect on your MP games anyway.

All 3 versions of the TT Mod have exactly the same content. Unfortunately, with the way the FOG2 mod system works we need a different mod folder for each of the three different modes of play; MP, SP battles and SP campaigns.

What exactly is the problem you are experiencing?

Hi Paul, my opponent says my challenge is appearing greyed out so he can't accept.

It sounds like Ian has put the TT Mod in the main build and therefore he needs to "drag and drop" it into the Multiplayer folder. :wink:

Yes, Pete is correct. If you are sure you have the TT_Mod_MPV1.5.18 folder in your My Documents/My Games/FieldOfGlory2/MULTIPLAYER folder, and your opponent sees the challenge as greyed out, then your opponent must have the TT_Mod_MPV1.5.18 folder in an incorrect location. He needs to place it in his My Documents/My Games/FieldOfGlory2/MULTIPLAYER folder, then all should be fine.

Nah, you beat me fair and square. great battle with both sides rolling up the enemies right flank resulting in a new battle line oriented 90 degrees from the first. Lots of fun

Division D

Swuul (Rome) beat grumpydaddy845 (Greek) 60-35


I was ready to throw in the towel when both my flanks collapsed, greek cavalry got to the rear of my center, and the score was around 30-20 in the favour of greeks. I felt like being out of my league, grumpydad simply outplayed me. Then suddenly the greek center collapsed, my cataphracts successfully waded across the deep stream routing some raw hoplites in the process on my right flank, my archers were able to throw back the greek assaulters on the rocky hill on left. When the phants and legionares in center turned around to charge backwards, greeks seemed to self implode before the romans barely had time to get back in contact. I am still staring at the screen with my jaw open :o

Thanks for the compliment, Swuul. The only practice match I played was against the Romans and I was beat handily by the AI, so I felt pretty good holding my own at the half way point. Both of us had played perfectly till that point. Then everything fell apart! One more turn would have allowed me to outflank your center on both sides, but such is the vagarity of war. My center collapsed, allowing you to confront my flanking force while they were wading across water up to their knees! I think I made one mistake by chasing a skirmisher with cavalry that might have made it in time to flank attack your left, but other than that, I have no regrets.
