When I first installed the mod, I got confused that there were no new files at all in the copy of the vanilla RA 2 folder I've set up for it. Then I did go data hunting, and sure enough, I've found the files then in the default location (/westwood/RA2 on C-Drive). I tested to uninstall/install two more times, and everytime, despite making sure my custom-location on my D-drive is selected, it always installs to the default location on the C-drive anyway.

When I then tried to copy the installed files over manually and started the mod, it loaded up and I started a skyrmish as japan. All the new buildings/units have missing cameos in the build menu, the attack dogs had no animations at all, and the refinery was 1x1 build foundation despite taking more space. That made me not playing further.

So yeah, I'm not impressed. The problems might have to do with me copying the files over manually, but you should know not everyone uses the default-location on C:\

tl;dr: fix the launcher

First of all, Installer works just fine, installation path can be changed from the installation window, and the shortcut has relative path (and not absolute to C:\Westwood)

What you are doing is wrong!

1. Choose to install to %YOURDRIVE%\Westwood (or whatever), and
2. You will get shortcut to desktop with the workable path.

If you want to go all the way around, i.e. to extract the files to default location "C:\Westwood", and move them from there to %YOURLOCATION%, then after moving them, you need to run the game from "RA2IT.bat" and not from gamemd.exe, or ra2md.exe.

If you run the game directly from gamemd.exe, or ra2md.exe then ARES is not loaded, and the mod wouldn't work properly, or even game crush is possible.

As I see, your base folder has not contain fresh clean install of the game, there are save files showed on the video.
Advise: Check for "expandmd99.mix" or any "*.ini" files in your RA2 directory and if some existed - deleted it!

author,the installer's installing folder option seems to be useless,because no matter which path I select,the full objects will all be put into "C:\WESTWOOD\RA2",which is the default installing path.
I do have done the installion by copying and all files in that default folder and pasting into the folder where Yuri runs.But I want to know if I did wrong so I can't install in the path that I wish,or that's a bug?

When I've tested the game, and make a repack for it, I've forced default directory to "C:\Westwood\RA2", and that behavior was mistakenly kept in the mod installer template, now I've fix that, and fixed installer for the mod is uploaded.

Thank you for your quick response.

Ok, the new installer works now, and I switched from my retail version over to the origin version which I downloaded and there it worked properly. Which is strange, because my retail version itself never had any mods installed, I always copy a new verson of it before I use that copy for a mod.

Anyway, thumps up for the quick response. Everything is good now.
