There are some bugs related to the Necron Last stand patch that I still haven't figured out how to resolve so avoid using the army painter while the mod is active. Currently if you want to make a new color theme you have to deactivate the mod and then use the vanilla army painter then reactivate it. There's also some other minor text issues that will be resolved in the next patch along with some expanded content.

I've realized that I haven't made clear instructions on how to manually uninstall the mod. This is what you need to delete/replace:

"ROW" folder located directly in your retribution folder.
"ROW.module" file located directly in your Retribution folder.
"Mods" folder located in your Retribution/Game Assets folder.
"ROW.ucs" file located in your Retribution/Game Assets/Locale/English folder.
Replace or delete and repair the "DOW.ucs" file located in your Retribution/Game Assets/Locale/English folder.

I will make this easier with the next update.

"How to start the mod"?
People keep asking me about this so even though this is explained in the installer I will explain it here aswell.

Once you actually installed the mod you have to go into your STEAM library, right click your Retribution and go into properties, click "start alternatives" and add the text "-dev -nomovies -modname ROW". Now you're all set!

If you're not using STEAM then you have to make a Retribution shortcut go into the shortcuts properties click the "destination" text, after the retribution destination text add "-dev -nomovies -modname ROW".

Upload this in a rar and without an EXE - this file is giving off 31 positives for generic.virus on Virustotal.

There will never be an unpacked version of ROW. It would be enormous and take too long to upload and for most people it would be too difficult to install. I don't know which anti-virus you're using but this file should not read as a threat. In worst case you should get the message that it has unknown origin upon launch but if you're administrator it's not harder than to press "launch anyway". I suppose I could zip the exe file in the future.

Crash on launch:
17:52:30.20 Unable to mount all archives. Is your .module file out of sync with your locale.ini file?

Tried several versions of start to get this to run including taking out -nomovies and also running on admin account and admin elevation.

Only fault it seem to be throwing outside the usual "out of world / clamp" that a lot of mods seem to generate is this:

-- FATAL SCAR Error! --
World_GetRand: Invalid parameters. min 1 must be less than or equal to max 0
Lua Procedural-Functions.scar Ln 68 (PC_Rand)
Lua Encounters.scar Ln 346 (ChooseEncounterByWeight)
Lua Encounters.scar Ln 298 (ChooseEncounter)
Lua Encounters.scar Ln 65 (SpawnChaffUnits)
Lua ProceduralBackend.scar Ln 420 (Rule_Populate)
Lua ProceduralBackend.scar Ln 290 (Rule_StartMeUp)
Lua ProceduralBackend.scar Ln 130 ((null))

-- FATAL SCAR Error! --
FATAL Scar Error calling init function <>. Execution has been terminated!
-- Shutting Down Mission SCAR --

Any ideas what is going wrong and is it able to be fixed with a hand edit?

"-- FATAL SCAR Error! --
FATAL Scar Error calling init function <>. Execution has been terminated!
-- Shutting Down Mission SCAR --"

Made some quick research and this error occurs if you play with a friend who's using a different mod or a different version of the same mod, it can also be a network error which are incredibly tricky to diagnose, and occur in a rather random pattern. This has however nothing to do with the mod itself so I cannot help you with this one.

ROW patch 3.9 will contain a launcher so you no longer need to make your own working shortcut, hopefully a slightly smarter but still aggressive AI, overall balance tweaks to vehicles and working army painter (it's not 100% yet but at least it will no longer crash your game). New content will be postponed to version 4.0.

Patch will release on Saturday.

I made a mistake with the packing of 3.9 so the current army painter is still bugged, please don't use it. I will make another update in a couple of days.

If you're experiencing issues make a proper report (how you installed it, what launcher are you using, your system details etc) and mail it to me. Sending me messages like "it doesn't work" won't help you. I and the moddb community can assure you that if you install it properly the mod works very well.
