Please read the installation guide first, because This RAR contains all the raw files instead of a single big file, in consideration of future convenience when it comes to upgrades. And if you are a curious player like me, you can also modify the files inside easily according to your preferences :)
Homeworld 2 Complex Simple Installation:
1. Extract everything into the DATA folder of your Homeworld 2 game folder. For example, D:\Homeworld2\Data
2. Go to Homeworld2\Bin\Release Folder, right click on Homeworld2.exe and create a shortcut. And be sure your Homeworld 2 is already V1.1!
3. Right click on the shortcut, add " -overridebigfile -hardwarecursor" to the end of the existing line in the Target box. For example, D:\Homeworld2\Bin\Release\Homeworld2.exe -overridebigfile -hardwarecursor
(Don't forget to click Apply)
4. You can now play this mod via the new shortcut. For noobs like me, you can at the same time run the trainer (bie.exe) which is also supplied in the rar. (I actually use this trainer as a tool to test the mod.) In game, press SHIFT+R=be rich (AI players will also be rich), SHIFT+U=instant research, SHIFT+B=instant build; CTRL+R/U/B=deactivate each item. This trainer only works on Homeworld 2 v1.1
