Secrets of the Venator
1.0.2 Build
6th September 2013
o Fixed the Providence – I’M SURE THIS TIME
o A Splash Screen for every language
 Not actually localized yet
Installer changes
o Removed the string set for Steam users (The instructions were the same anyway)
o The installer no longer tries to create a restore point – this was identified by the creator of       ‘Centurion Setup’ as a possible cause of a bug that crashed the installer. (More info - Number 3 below)
o The installer will allow you to install without removing a previous version, although I advise against it and will not help you with troubleshooting if you installed over an old one.
 Important things for you to note:

 1) This is NOT a PATCH – It is a full install, containing the aforementioned, the content of the 1.0.1 AND the content of the 1.0

 2)Therefore it is STRONGLY ADVISED – In bold capitalisation no-less – that you first uninstall ‘Secrets Of The Venator’ and THEN DELETE the ‘Secrets_of_the_venator’ folder if it is still present in your ‘Mods’ folder.

 3) If you find that the installer crashes I need you to do at least one, maybe two, things:
• Report it here, here or here. (If you do it at more than one, please include the username you used at the other site{s})
  • This step applies if you tried installing to a non-default location – try and install to the default location and see what happens.
4) One question I’ve seen pop up: “Is this compatible with other mods?”
In this instance, it was asked due to another mod modding some of the base games files.
Simple answer: I don’t know
Thus, it would be great if people could inform me of any incompatibilities with other mods.
The download linked to by the big red button above will download a self-extracting exe file, with the compressed installer INSIDE of that.

 It has, however, come to my attention that some people – and some people's Anti-Virus software – gets nervous when opening Self-extracting archives.
I get that, and don’t want people to wonder if this mod is going to ruin all their stuff.
To this end, I’ve also uploaded the compressed installer inside of a 7z file.
It has the same compression as the exe file, but you will need 7-zip to open it.

If you download the 7z version, can you please, PLEASE, leave a comment below or contact me here or here. (Or at the latter two of the threads linked to earlier)
This is so that I can keep track of download numbers because:
• If lots of people download the 7z version, I might change to only uploading that in the future which will save time.
• If I don’t think people are downloading it, I’ll be less inclined to keep publicly updating the mod – I’ll keep modding, and share the files with whoever asks, but I won’t spend the time to keep the page updated.
• I asked you to report your downloading of the 7z version; I could’ve been a tool and made you go through adf.ly which would keep track of the numbers for me.

If you could indulge me with that one small favour in return for the work I’ve put into this, it’d be much appreciated.

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.

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)
