Interested in electronic games since i got my first Game Boy when i was 7 years old, i always wanted to "make something with games". After accomplishing the Abitur (A-Level), i've started to study Biomedical Chemistry in Mainz. During the studies, i became interested in the Stargate mod for Empire at War, which was started by Rommel. Together with Kane, we foundet the Stargate Modding Group and i learned a lot about community management, 3d modelling, animation, team management and game developing in general. A bit more than a year ago, i made my dream come true and started to study Game Design at the Games Academy in Germany, which i have accomplished now succesfully. Since April 2010 I am working at ThisIs Digital Media Group as QA Manager and Game & App Designer.

hey Thor, do u own the eaw and foc games on cd or r u playing them through steam?

If you have the cd for eaw, download the patches for eaw, install the patches. If you also have foc in cd form download and install the patch for foc.

also find the foc win7 patch and download and install that.

If you just wanna play the latest patched stargate mod, just drag and drop the files from the mod folder into your EAW folder. when you get the window for "yes to all" meaning your computer wants to overwrite the old vanilla folders... say yes to all.

that will install the mod and then to make a correct short cut you have to open up win7's version of win explorer and find your eaw folder. Open it up and if you double click on the eaw launcher you should get the mod to start up.

I don't use win7 yet, so i'm not sure entirely for the procedures to start a game under win 7, but the install stuff i just told you should work for ya if you still are having problems getting the mod to work for ya.

hope this helps.
