i just bought the game and i love to mod. this sounds like an all in one fix, but i haven't even played it yet so i wonder if this is over kill on the AI.what is the difference of v1 an v2 ? i am also kinda skeptical this gets put up a day before i bought it, for such an old game.

Why would the timing make you skeptical? thats a really odd thing to say. Its only overkill on the AI if you continue to believe you are good enough to play only on Ultimate Badass difficulty :P

I think PVP mode is best part of original ACM and I played PVP mode with friends over 100+ hours...So I really desire this excellent MOD can overhaul PVP mode to make a professinal ACM team match,just like L4D2 Pro Mod(These two games are very simliar~)...I can submit a suggested list of MP balance changing.

Please do! MP is the big unknown area for me as I never really played it MP to start with, and certainly get little time nowadays!

Hello,

Firstly, thanks a lot for your work.

I am having having issues executing the installation.

The file 'DEFGEN_UnlocksVersus_SF.UPK.uncompressed_size' is not present in the CookedPCC console folder. I have completed all the other steps but the game keeps crashing at launch.

Are you using a non patched version of the game? You need the latest version that brought in all those fixes

Yes, non patched version with fixes.

I am assuming you do not have it on steam? If you run it without the DEFGEN_UnlocksVersus_SF.UPK file (leave it as the original one) does the game work? I may need to make a patch for non steam games

Yes, I have it on Steam.

I have tried to run with the original file and without but in both cases it crashes.

Hmm. I am unsure whats not working here then sorry. I have it on steam and many others have been successful. If your willing, perhaps try removing and re-installing ACM? I know my steam really hates ACM and often screws the installation up

OK I am REALLY REALLY sorry, it has just been brought to my attention there is an error in the installation instructions

I have fixed the online article but in step 2 it said :

Traditionally this is c:\Program Files (x86)\steam\steamapps\common\Aliens Colonial Marines\PecanGame\Config\

when it should have said :

Traditionally this is c:\Program Files (x86)\steam\steamapps\common\Aliens Colonial Marines\

Again I am so very sorry for the error

Despite following all your instructions I am crashing on startup (yes I did all the pre-installation stuff as well)

Some of the files you said to delete don't exist in the folder you said to look in. For example, there is no "DEFGEN_UnlocksVersus_SF.UPK.uncompressed_size" in my cookedPCconsole folder, there was a "DEFGEN_UnlocksVersus_SF.UPK" though.

You also say to drop some files into the main install folder, but then say to put them into the config folder instead...not sure what the correct place is...

Is it just me, or is this game so impossibly hard to play? I get about three feet and I'm dead every time. It's coming down to just memorizing where the aliens spawn and be waiting for them.

If you find the V2 aliens too hard, download the addon. its exactly for that! V3 balances things much more so if your patient you could wait for that.

Please keep in mind this is still WIP

Now in order to make all your hard work appreciated what we need to do is revive this community by making a forums or website, something dedicated to people playing this game in multiplayer mode. Escape was awesome I loved the PvP aspect of this game and would love to see the community come back to play it. If we can get enough people active in it and spread the word we might be able to just log in one day and find people to match up with.

One thing you migh want to consider is i've been playing bughunt, and after 10 rounds onwards there's literally a battlefield of bodies everywhere that lags the game up and starts to look silly.

- Suggestion = Have a body cap about 25 bodies before they start disappearing, this way you get bodies still, but they're not flooding the game.

- Suggestion = Allow marines to sprint in bughunt when carrying the Sentry gun.

My game mod is installed but it seems to re launch the game after I close it and the only way to stop it is to hit the close button before it launched through steam. Any idea why and how to fix?

I managed to make the game run fine so far, make sure you put the binaries folder in the main directory and replace any files it tells you are already in there and not the core files folder instead. Even if you can't find the defgen file.... most things will go into your main directory, I also after this installed v3... and proceeded to isntall v4 and so on and so forth.
