For those that are new to our mod welcome, no doubt for those that are viewing this thread because they cant get it to work correctly, it crashes during the map loading screen. Well for the most part it is fairly simple to get the mod to work correctly unless it is your own Operating system like Win 7 that is the cause of your issues then I dont have any experience with that OP system. Anyways like i was pointing out the reason why the mod crashes for the most part is due to the part of the player, if you played a hw 2 game before playing the mod your race box will be blank and so will the AI if you are playing against them. Most people misunderstand when i tell them to fill in their race box, they just assume i mean the more options button to the upper right but what i am telling them is what i meant, click on the drop down arrow for the races that you would have chosen for stock homeworld 2, where Higgy and Vagry would be in stock, click that drop down arrow and it will give you an option called choose from above, select and do the same for the AI you are using if any. Next you need to select the team you want to play as, now this is where the more options button comes in, so click that button and choose what settings you want then go down the list to the races. Now each race will be assigned based on positions on the map itself. So if you are using position 1 it will give you the player 1 race that is assigned to player 1 in the more options tab, in other words Player 1 = position 1, player 2 = position 2 etc. Anyways if that doesnt help you out maybe this xfire video can clear things up by showing you how to set it up.
