A conversion for 'Empire at War: Forces of Corruption', Return of the Clones is based on a what-if senario - what if parts of the old Republic had survived Order 66, leading to a civil war between the Empire and Republic. Meanwhile a grassroots Rebellion has started against the tyranny of the Empire, whilst Tyber Zann and his Consortium salvage old Confederacy droid, vehicles, and starships in order to make his own grab for power.

How to play Return of the Clones via the Steam 'Gold Edition'

Posted by on

Hi all,

Okay no this isn't an installer, though that will be something I'll look at, simply instructions on how to get RotC to work on Steam.

1. Copy the 'Mods/RotC' folder to your EaW/FoC steam directory, ending in '"\Steam\steamApps\common\Star Wars Empire at War\corruption". There should now be four folders - Data, MSS32, Recordings, and Mods. If this isn't accurate, you've pasted the folder in the wrong place.

2. Open Steam, find your EaW/FoC copy.
- Right-click on 'Empire at War: Gold Edition'
- click on 'Properties'
- click on 'Set Launch Options'
- paste this into the field: swfoc MODPATH=Mods\RotC

Now whenever you play FoC on Steam, RotC will start. Yes this is somewhat of an annoying process, and yes it would be great if another method existed. It is more difficult than with the retail version but as far as I'm aware this is the best available at present.

thx for the instructions and I don't find it all that much annoying to worry about. Its the same procedure with non steam mods too where you have to assign a batch file instead.

Quite easy to do and understand in less than 5min.

I never used batch files, just created a shortcut to the .exe and edited the shortcuts launch params.
