H.I.V.E Mode is an Horde variation game mode, no more mindless shooting to Grunts and Wretches, now you have to defend strategic points, protect VIPs and assasin locust commanders and many more, of course it will be senseless without swarm of angry and bloodthirsty locust :)

H.I.V.E Mode Beta Installation Guide

1. Introduction
2. Installation
3. Known Issues
4. Credits

1. Introduction:

H.I.V.E Beta is mod for Gears of War created to fill the lack of Horde mode on PC.

2. Installation:

a. Delete old mod files with Gearsofwar2package (it will probably corrupt other mods using MP security and MP_Outpost)
b. Unpack the files into your Gears of War My Documents Directory which is:
"C:\Users\YourMom\Documents\My Games\Gears of War for Windows"
c. Create Shortcut to WarGame-G4WLive.exe (or edit attached one)
d. Edit Shortcut - it should look like this

("E:\Microsoft Games\Gears of War\Binaries\WarGame-G4WLive.exe" CookPackages -platform=PC HiveMenu HM_Security HM_Outpost HM_Clocktower HM_Warmachine HM_Gridlock -user -installed -AlwaysRecookMaps -UpdateInisAuto -final_release)

Where:

E:\Microsoft Games\Gears of War\Binaries\WarGame-G4WLive.exe


is path to your EXE in Installation Directory.
e.Run Shortcut and wait untill cook process is finished - it an last 10-15minutes
f. When Finished Run Game
g. reset your Graphics Settings
h. type "start HiveMenu"
i. Enjoy the game - now when you load map you can go back and set your desired graphics settings.

3. Known Issues:

a. You won't be able to play on XBoX 360 Controller - i have no idea why but it isn't possible
b. Game Crashes - try to reset your graphics settings - or lower it for playing this mod - it uses big ammount of memory so it can be unstable at some point
c. dont know how to respawn while spectating - press F1 on keyboard
d. "I have black textures" - reset your graphics setting - its cooked content so game can loose itself at some points ;)
e. while hi jack objective - jack doesnt move - shoot him he lost his path.
f. UI doesnt work - try to hit esc and return to game it should et right imput mode for ui scene

I've placed all packages on Gears of War My Documents Directory, create shorcut of WarGame-G4Wlive and added ''CookPackages -platform=PC HiveMenu... etc'' and when it's cooking shows that Failed Load to characters packages, muttering etc, and doesn't cook, and when I run the game and type start HiveMenu doesn't start, it says that HiveMenu map not exist

Skydrive.live.com try to download this package and paste it in your game directory(not in my documents), if that fails - try to play on uncook version - to play on uncook just move HIVE mode directory from unpublished directories to Published Directories

Does this mod work with a torrented version of the game?

No, only original version of game is supported. You can try to run this on uncooked content but you can be missing a lot of content.
