Mod Installation Tutorial
What you will need:
Winrar, 7zip, or equivalent program capable of extracting .rar formatted files.
Homeworld 2 updated to version 1.1.
1. Download the file.
2. Extract the Contents of the mod to C:\Program Files\sierra\Homeworld2\Data or equivalent.
3. Make a copy of the Homeworld 2 shortcut on your desktop, right click the shortcut and select properties. Now you will see a target line (it's the top one).
4. At the end of the target line you need to put a space, then type -mod HHFRC107.big, changing the 107 where appropriate to whatever build you're using, for example 109 for build 1.09. (If you are using the noshaders version, the current version of the mod would be " -mod HHFRC107NoShaders.big") There are no quotes around the line you just added. Now your target line should look like this:
"C:\Program Files\sierra\Homeworld2\Bin\Release\Homeworld2.exe" -mod HHFRC107.big
-or if using the no shaders version-
"C:\Program Files\sierra\Homeworld2\Bin\Release\Homeworld2.exe" -mod HHFRC107NoShaders.big
5. Remember: You must have Winrar, 7zip, or a similar program that can extract .rar formatted files. You must have Homeworld 2 updated to version 1.1.
What NOT to do
1. Do not put Overridebigfile and the mod extension in the same target path, the mod will not work!
2. Do not use an outdated mod target path! Make sure you know what version of the mod you're using and edit it accordingly (-mod 'currentversion'.big).
Note: This is not the final version of this mod.
