Brace for impact. Release day is here, after almost 5 years of work, Apex Studios finally brings you the first release of Covenant at War.

This release, as stated in the previous update is a SPACE SKIRMISH ONLY beta version, including both the UNSC and Covenant sides. There will be regular patches following this first release to fix any issues found and add plenty of new content.

Install Instructions:
It's easy. In fact, even if you forgot it, you could look it up easily, either here or with the included read me file. You only need to extract the downloaded zip file into your Star Wars: Empire at War - Forces of Corruption directory, copy the shortcut file to your desktop and change its target to reflect your installation path.

I see this every time with EaW mods for Steam.
1. Install mod as usual to the steam version of Empire at War
2. Open Steam, right click on the game in the list and choose properties.
3. Click Set Launch options
Then use
sweaw MODPATH=Mods\ModName for EaW
swfoc MODPATH=Mods\ModName for FoC

ModName can be swapped out for any EaW or FoC mod, so in this case it would be
swfoc MODPATH=Mods\CaW

No offence, but with a little bit of research you could've found this yourself.

Make sure you use the quotation marks "" and if it still doesn't work we also included a batch file which seems to work flawless.

There is only an ART folder included when I try to download it and there is no shortcut or batch file, I made my own and it still didn't work.

Sounds like a corrupted download, because there is supposed to be way more than just an ART folder. Try downloading it again from this or a different source (see the comment section here).

Check the second page of comments on the summary/homepage of this mod. A user called 'Ardentprayer' posted a very helpful installation manual for steam users.

This is doing my head in!

I've managed to launch the game, and it's appeared with a UNSC Fleet in the top-left corner, facing a Covenant fleet in the lower-right corner, with the logo in the upper-right corner (I'm assuming this is what should be happening.)

Barely a second passes, and I get an error message:

xml parse error File .\Data\XML\GUIDialogs.xml: file has syntax errors, see log file

What the hell is going on?

DGaius May 10 2013, 5:14am replied:

I've seen this error come by very often and the ironic part of it is that we never touched the GUIDialogs.xml file. Going by your comment, I assume you already tried re-installing both Foc and the mod?

I think you guys should add the UNSC Infinity from Halo 4 and the CSO class supercarrier from Halo Reach. I would make the costs high and make it so you can only produce a limited amount ( only two supercarriers were ever seen and the UNSC built one infinity class warship).

DGaius Jun 20 2013, 4:42pm replied:

We've already mentioned quite a few times the Infinity and CSO class supercarrier will not make an appearance, because of two reasons:
1. They are incredibly overpowered and would ruin gameplay
2. This mod takes place between Halo 2 and 3, which automatically rules out the Infinity.

Yeah as soon as i posted it, I started reading the older comments. But I think there should be more covenant ships like the frigate and the CRS class light cruiser. All the information on ships used by both the unsc and the covenant can be found at halo.wikia.com

Try the steam install section of the extended installation guide, it may help you out: Halocaw.net
I recommend reading it all, but if you're looking for a quick fix check chapters 2,6 and 7.

If you have both installed in a 'mods' folder than yes that is certainly possible.
