Greetings SWR Fans! The day you have all been waiting for has arrived and you finally get to play the one faction that you've been looking forward to for these many months - or even years?

First of all, thanks a lot, I've been looking forward to the release and it looks really great!
I'm just not 100% sure how to install the mod: As I've done with some previous mods (and previous releases of ROTR), I copied all the mod files to Zero Hour/Zero Hour Data. However, the game unexpectedly quit when I launched a match with AI, nonetheless I did manage to play by myself as ECA (and it looks amazing!), without any AI. My question is, should some of the mod files be placed in subdirectories? I'll do some experimenting myself, but any help would be much appreciated. Once again, thanks for the awesome release!

Mac version crashes instantly when you try to launch a skirmish game with or without AI. (First time you install, it will work. Any subsequent attempts will be met with this bug).

Copy and pasted all files into Zero Hour Data for installation (not sure if that is correct). Please help!
