Some people have reported issues with the installer for 2.0. If you download the installer from Moddb, and you get errors suggesting that there is a corrupt file, then I suggest the following steps:

1. Try to reinstall the mod from the installer again. Close any unnecessary programs and let the installer work.

2. If the above suggestion does not work, use the above link to download the XML files for GaW 2.0 and extract it to your /Data directory to over-write any "corrupt" XML files.

17 comments by NakedCrook on Mar 7th, 2013

Yesterday, someone posted a link in the comments section with a link to a leaked copy of GaW 2.1. Needless to say...I am NOT impressed by this, and frankly, I find this to be rather annoying. The very fact that one of my internals got leaked is kinda frustrating because it tells me that my Beta Testers cannot be trusted. And before you say it; YES, I have Beta Testers, and YES, I keep their names a secret, and NO, I do not even tell my Beta Testers who their other Beta Testers are. I prefer to keep anonymity among that group of people for reasons that involve measures to prevent things from getting leaked.

Anyway, sometime yesterday, a user by the name of GAWLeaks (I am guessing an account specifically created to leak my mod) posted a link to a 4shared account that allowed the download of a January build of GaW 2.1. This was a rather recent distribution that I had handed out to my Beta Testers, so it was pretty up-to-date, with only a few things missing from my own personal builds. This user stated that they got their copy of GaW 2.1 from one of my Beta Testers. I can conclude from this that whoever GAWLeaks was, they were either one of my Beta Testers, or they were a friend of one of my Beta Testers who got an unauthorized copy of the mod.

Needless to say...I plan on doing something about this. Little did my Beta Testers know, they each got unique versions of the XML files for the mod (this is one of the reasons why I don't tell Beta Testers about other Beta Testers). In one of, or several of, or many of the XML files, there is a commented line of code that contains a series of characters which will tell me exactly who this version of the mod belonged to. In short, once I check which Beta Tester owned this copy of the mod...I am going to take immediate action against the culprit in question...and it is not going to be pretty. I am going to do everything humanly possible to make things as difficult for this person as I can. I am going to utilize every avenue available to ensure that this person is punished appropriately.

Ultimately, the number of downloads of the leak was quite low, and the damage was very minimal. To anyone who downloaded the leak, I strongly urge you to delete the leaked version of the mod, and await an official release. I will not offer ANY support to people who downloaded the leaked version, and if you come forward, posting a comment, or sending me a PM, asking for help setting up the leaked version of the mod, your questions will be deleted without a second thought. I will provide NO SUPPORT for ANY leaked version of this mod.

Furthermore, to all of my current Beta Testers...your services will no longer be required. In light of the current situation, I feel it is best to no longer entertain the prospect of Beta Testers. I have had too many problems with Beta Testers in the past, and the effort is simply not worth it. As of this moment, all Beta Testing will end.


With all of that said...I now have to clean up the mess that this person made. So, the rest of this is here to cover the integrity of GaW.

First of all, I want to offer a sincere apology to the 3rd parties that offered assets to my mod. Third parties essentially include EVERYONE who is listed in the credits of my mod, and anyone who ever offered or supplied assets that are used in the mod. This leak was distributed, by the culprit, with NO README file, and as such, there was no mention of the efforts and hard work put in by 3rd parties, nor was their any mention of the original copyright owners. This is unacceptable, and it is insulting to the hard work done by other madders in the community.

Second of all, I want to assure everyone that there will be NO MORE leaks of GaW 2.1. With the effective dismissal of all my Beta Testers, I can assure you that there will be no more problems.

Third of all, I will be posting an updated credits file for 2.1 ASAP. I want the record to clearly show who as been of help to GaW, and I want their efforts recognized, despite the missing information in the leaked version of GaW 2.1.

That is because of the way this mod has to be set up which is far more tedious than other mods so much so I have not bothered to re-install it (plus it is more than likely a dead mod). For most mods you will have to create an exe or use a cache launcher the mod comes with for it to run otherwise the game will just run vanilla because you need a different launch path. You can also get the petro-launcher which may also help.

More than likely. The author has not been on in a year and he stated a year ago the next iteration was close to release which clearly hasn't happened. Unless he states otherwise I would assume that it is dead. He also stated he had incidents of people posting betas everywhere for download but I had attempted to find this by searching Google and found no such things so it is possible that was a fabrication to give him an excuse to cease production of the mod.

Really? Considering It crashes constantly in GC the units that are present don't really have any balance (the ships stats don't match up correctly I've since forgotten exact names of said ships) , plus this guy hasn't is not continuing work on this mod there is no point of installing it since most of the info and titles are missing for around 60% to 70% of all factions, not to mention the pathetic copy and paste job done with the planets.

1. It has never, not once, crashed for me.

2. It's not meant for GC.

3. The titles are a glitch I believe. They were all there until one day they became [MISSING]

4. I think he is continuing, just very slowly with no updates, as the day after the leak response he released a batch of about 15 models.

I'll be honest it only crashed once for me during a skirmish test and then in GC but I think it was a bug not sure what caused it but I just got ****** off because it also deleted the saves file!!!

But what do you mean its not mean for GC? He has added in planets and as far as I can tell there wasn't a warning saying GC is only half done or anything (again being honest I didn't look really hard but I did make sure to read most of his postings before I installed the mod)90% of the crashing and bugs came from the GC so hearing that its not meant for GC (least not yet) makes sense, still could a sworn he said somewhere that it was working or something.
