What were some of the bugs in v1.84 and do i need it for this version to work

1. Some bugs in v1.84 were the unarmed Vaygr Defence Cruiser (removed) and the lack of Kadeshi unit/research descriptions (fixed).

2. No, this is a full version so you do not need v1.84 to get v1.85 to work.

it seems to me that i have FX v1.84 even though the shortcut says "FX MOD v1.85"
the vaygar has the defense carrier/cruiser, i can't read the kedash description, I CAN'T PLAY THE KEDASH ON LAN(when i try i can start out fine but then after awhile it says "out of sync" to one of the players and there gone from the game)! if someone can help me that would be great. also, sometimes when you play other races the "out of sync" thing pops up and it stops working! I've given up playing this game in multilayer.

Theres one small glitch/bug I noticed, When you play as Taiidan race you can't have your own custom colors because almost all the ships come out Gray, the only ship that came out not Gray is a Attack Bomber.

Right then, I get a message when I try and start the game saying EXACTLY "The procedure entry point ?SaveAll@LuaConfig@@QAEX_N0@Z could not be located in the dynamic link library luaconfig.dll"

Can someone please help out because that is meaningless to me.

Google WinRAR. It's a free trusted program that lets you open .RAR packages. You also need to extract to your /homeworld2 folder and NOT your homeworld2/data folder. Lastly, you DO need the v1.1 patch.

Look on your homeworld cd or google it. I'm sure you can download it somewhere. then install it into the game \Bin directory.

For those of you that dont want to use WinRAR you can use 7zip. It is a free open source compression program that can extract rar files as well as almost all other formats of compressed files including zip and iso.

Ok I just figured out how to play this mod. AWSOME!!! I think the only thing that could make this mod better is a merge with another mod i have, its called 'Unified Hiigaran Fleet'. Google that.

And #2, The needleships should have higher attack points. Or just make bonus attack research for all ships. The Reason is that when i play as any race against the progenitors, i get creamed BIGTIME.

Also for the progenitor, i think having a more organised ship building list would serve well. I mean the destroyer is a frigate for some reason. And I hardley find any use for fighter class vessels after i have a dreadnought built so mabe give them more defense capabilities.

I'm sorry if i'm just being overly critical i just want to point out the minor flaws i find while in play.

The last thing before i go, Why cant i save my game!!! I enjoy playing player VS. CPU mode but when i save the game it closes the game and doesn't save. So my hour and a half of building up a fleet to attemt once and for all to defeat the progenitor empire is all gone. It makes me very angry. X( I would like to know if i installed it wrong or if its made that way because i really think this mod deserves an 11 out of 10 and i want to play extra long games.

We are currently aware of those issues. However, the FX Tutorial IS complete. See here on how to do it: Hwfx.divine-serenity.net

I think its time we start posting ideas for a new release. Here are some of mine.

1. If you capture an enemy mothership or carrier, you can build ships with it but only ships of that race.

2. Add the Kushan, Bentusi and HWC races.

3. Make the Taiidan, Kadeshi, Progenitor,etc... ships colour changable and with the badges.

4. Complete the campaign games.

5. Lower the progenitor ships firepower by at least half.

6. If possible sometime in the future make single player mini games for each race. (maybe 2-3 campaign style levels in a row)

No no no dont half the progenitor ships firepower its perfect how it is.

spartan, the progenitor ships are way to strong! Its nice to play as them but playing against them is HELL! I usually play as the Kadeshi because the needleships are awsome, the Sajuuk main cannon destroys a fully upgraded needleship in only 3 shots! Thats an insane amount of dammage to deal with. And sajuuk is good against fighters also. So Sajuuk is the ultimate warship put a real pain to destroy. And capturing it is even more of a pain because the gun turrets on it destroy frigates in 2 shots! sure playing as progenitor is fun but against them! U dont have a chance.

I would also like a link to a forum. WildHeart gave the main page forum but i would like a link to the page on HWFX comanders V1.85. And if there isnt one, PLZ make one.
