Thanks for the upload! For those of us who have an older version of the mod, should we install over it or delete the older version and do a fresh install?

Install over the top

Over the top should work. But you may want to disable read-only on PecanEngine.ini before installing.

Hi thanks for responding I re-installed and it now say Success instead of Failure..Question I watched an awesome video on YouTube showing off the Mod V2 of the Mod and the lighting from light sources like room lights is very bright and has cool Bloom effects..the version I installed V4 seems that the lights in rooms are a lot less Bright and more Dull with this version..is that what you guys where going for In version 4 or is it me? Thanks

The initial V2 version comes with a highly stylized Master Effects setup that is quite CPU intensive, not everyone liked it, and so were missing out on some important ME features. I decided for now to switch to a much friendlier (and faster) setup that doesn't do any color shifting and tonemapping adjustment for you.

If you have V2, you can just install its Master Effect's files to regain that look on V4!

Thanks for this! I'm sure you already know but the pulse rifle reload sounds are now out of sync with the anims. I think you already mentioned the ammo counter not working too. Apart from that its looking really good!

Haha! Sorry. I'm a game tester by day and when I find a bug I feel an overwhelming urge to tell someone. Have you thought about setting up some mean of bug tracking? Or are comments enough?

This is on the todo list. for now comments are enough because they are recorded at least! No apologies required, throw those bugs at me! (just make sure they're dead!)

Yea please fix the pulse rifle sound. In my case it doesn't make any sound at all.

Aside from that the mod is looking better by days!

Installer for V4 dosen´t work for me and my buddies. It say there is no ACM.exe, when you choose the directory. My boodies got the same issue. V3 runs without trouble.

All Windows 10 x64

Uh. Check to see if the installer "runs as administrator" turn that off if it does. Thanks Microsoft

The checks for the ACM.exe haven't changed since the last version. The installer expects you to pick the "Aliens Colonial Marines" folder and checks in relation to that, so picking a folder above or below that level won't work (such as the bin directory or the steam directory). Choosing the wrong directory OR not having an ACM.EXE file are the only ways this issue will show.

That was not the problem.

I´ll download the ACM.exe new from staem and set the the V4 installer "start as admin". After this, it worked.

Don´t know why, but it is strange. V3 installer worked like a charm, without "start as admin.

Yeah they are! I just rewatched the movie, even Vasques takes about 5 rounds to kill it with a Pulse Rifle.

Great mod guys. Looks more atmospheric. Had to enable DSR (nvidia dynamic super resolution) to get it to look just right. Thing is the aliens are kicking my but and wonder is there a god mode setting??

Thanks.

The God mode currently doesn't work. Use Weaker Soldiers to make it easier, or slower

Hey, I can't seem to get the game to launch. I verified the integrity of game cache before I installed v4 just to be safe, ran the installer as administrator, it said it was successfully installed. When I tried launching it from steam, it said running for a bit, then cut back without launching. Did the same thing when I launched from ACM.exe in the binaries folder after running it as admin. Help?

Exactly what point does it get to? what is on screen just before it closes? This a new one if your not seeing an error

Nothing, it never leaves the desktop. My steam portrait gets the green border, it stays for a sec, then it goes back to blue. (sorry for the anon, on my phone, but it is still CaptainAdmen!)

okay, I tried again today and something completely different happened! It started to launch, said "Completing installation" then said the servers were too busy and gave me error 41 (which has no reference on the page it linked me to)

I am a little confused, is Hadleys Hope a Bug Hunt map or is it part of the campaign?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote
jamesdickinson963 Author
jamesdickinson963

Both. Tribute is a bug-hunt map of Hadley's hope before it was destroyed in Aliens the movie. In the campaign you visit the same location, but its after the explosion so alot is destroyed

I follow instruction, but after I finish install and then I lunch games it stopped working and steam say error 44 :( and I already have .NET 3.5

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

Error 44 is "game installation corrupt"

Did you use the V4 installer, if so, was there any errors in it?

Hi I can fix in, It's a original problem

1. Documents\My Games\Aliens Colonial Marines\PecanGame and then delete Config folder
2. control panel>Clock, Language, and Region>Change the date,
time, or number format>Administrative>Change system locale...> change to English(United State)

Then install mod and play.

Now I can play it perfect, but in next update can you make normal pluse rifle rounds come back to be 95-99 rounds like in V2

Anyone know how to disable vsync to get 140hz refresh rate going? I tried messing with the fps delimiter in the ini files without any effect.

one thing i've hated about this game was the way the Aliens stood up and run towards you. The animations look so wired with its arms wide out.... any way to change that down the line ?.

Also my game crashes and re-launches all the time, after i freed the marine at the start, after i go though the door the game crashes then.

as for the standing up. this was re-introduced as having them run up to your feet on all fours before standing and killing you made it suuuuuper freaking hard

I also am experiencing this and definitely have a higher end machine. I'm using the new i7-6700k processor and a geforce 980ti. Maybe we can find a common ground for the issue based on our hardware?
