*IMPORTANT NOTE CONCERNING DESURA*: Desura should work now, so long as you download the full installer instead of DL/installing through Desura.

The full change log is 18 pages long, but here is a highly summarized list of the mod's features, omitting details like damage changes.

Full details can be found here: Crydev.net

Note that the full change log is very, very long (>90,000 characters). It will take some time to read but it's worth it.

Should you decide to download this, please be sure to read the installation info, which is in a separate "readme" file.

**Note**: There's a mistake in the install info. "Assault" should be "Harbor" instead. You're not missing a level.

**IMPORTANT Note**: Do not use the in-game mod loader to load the mod, as it does not work properly for DLL mods. Use a modified shortcut or the CryTools launcher.

Hey Guys,
Im using DESURA and when I click on the 'Full Tactical-Expansion V1.1 Installer" nothing happens.Any idea whats going on. Im new to DESURA so I dont know what to do. Also, even though I have uninstalled Crysis it still shows up when I click the play button. The same thing is happening with The Tactical Expansion Mod. First time around I installed the first version (Tactical Expansion Mod) and when it was done installing and I clicked launch I got a black (like the one before the Crysis intro starts) and then it went back to the desktop. Any help would be appreciated.

So I assume you have a complete, and patched up to 1.2.1, crysis install and youa re trying to launch through desura. So my question is, have you tried launching the game normally through windows and then opening the mod inside the game? I don't use desura much but below releases should be a link that says "free" which I believe will lead you to the download.

Thank you for helping out. Im very new to this mod stuff and apart from minecraft mods I dont now much else. Can you please tell me how to open a mod in game? Also I assume when you launch Crysis the version is listed somewhere in a corner on the main menu. Also I have already tried the free Tactical Expansion mod download and it did not work. Can you please tell me how you installed it?

Yeah, I mod S.T.A.L.K.E.R. a lot myself, to open the mod just select mods on the first screen where you can load savegames, etc. To find which version of crysis I use I go to the executable and right click>properties>details and check the version. I downloaded the mod off this page from in a browser: Moddb.com
Then you can use the included executable to install, and the readme is excellent and very helpful.

Also, when you have successfully loaded the mod it will say "Tactical-Expansion" in the bottom right corner.

And welcome to Moddb by the way.
