Most likely problem is the installation path.
Go to your Forces Of Corruption directory, open the 'Mods' folder and check to make sure there is a folder inside called 'Secrets_Of_The_Venator'

If that is not there, un-install and try again, making sure to select the right install location this time.

7z version downloaded, commenting as requested.

Your mod looks interesting, I'm eager to try it out.

I tried launching using the bat file, but a command line window flashes briefly, then disappears without anything happening(so fast, I can't read it). The installation was a partial success for me, because apparently, registry files go against the UAC restrictions on my account. Are you sure you can't release a version in a zip file instead of an exe? Because there are some of us players who use our parents' computers, and our parents automatically assume we'll install something with a virus.

I'll consider doing so for the next release, yes.
The primary reason for the installer is to make easier the release of intermediate patches that address minor things such as balance changes.
In the meantime, try launching with a third-party mod launcher.

(Although the brief flash of the command line window and then nothing else seems to tell me that the mod is either installed in the wrong location, or not at all)

Can you remove corruption in the next release because the consortium keep corrupting all of my planets and I can't stop them because they hit 2 or 3 planets at a time.

Can't guarantee that I'll remove it, but I'm thinking through ways of reducing the 'pain-in-the-***' factor it gives some people.

Hi perkman,

If you are getting the SOTV splash and Main Menu, then you are - almost certainly, barring something wondrous - playing the mod

An easy way to check is to start the Galactic Conquest map 'Equal Footing' as the Rebels at Tech Level 5; if the 'Aurora' is present at Hoth, then everything is as it should be.

Do you have any other mods installed?

In my experience, the cause of most errors like that is when another mod modifies the base games' files.

I've installed using the 7z.ver but have yet to get it to run properly all I get is a black screen with words but I can't read it because it disappears too quickly.

That generally means that it is not installed correctly, most likely because you selected the wrong location when installing.

Can you tell me at which point I messed up then: 1st I downloaded the 7z.vers, 2nd I then went to my "Downloads" folder then clicked the SotV mod went into it's archive using 7zip, 3rd I opened the file that was there and it then showed some message about copying and after that ended the installer started and since it showed that it was already on the SWFOC folder I just clicked the ok and after it was done I tried to play the game then got the black screen.

The black screen is the .bat file (that launches swfoc.exe with the modpath argument to launch SOTV) running.

When it flashes up like that, followed by nothing happening it means the .bat file has executed but, for whatever reason, swfoc.exe has not found the mod that it is looking for.

First of all - though it shouldn't matter in this instance - it sounds like that you have run the installer without first extracting it from the archive; That's generally not best practice.

There installer should have placed a shortcut on your desktop.

Right click on it and, on Win7 or later, teh context menu should have an option 'Open file location' - click on it.

The window that opens should be your root FOC directory (i.e, should have swfoc.exe in there).

If not, you've installed it into the wrong folder.

You were right about installing it in the wrong folder for some reason a folder with a similar name and contents was were it kept going. It's working fine now.
