Help installing battle group manager?

Postby mealteamsix » Sat 18 Feb 2017 22:35

I've tried recently to install the BGM, but I've had a lot of trouble with it. Can someone give me a step by step guide on how to install it? I'm pretty bad with computers so you'll probably have to give me very specific and detailed steps. Thanks!

There is no installation, you just extract all the files. Are you talking about the ZZ_Win.dat compatibility?

Yes, I'm having trouble understanding the instruction on how to extract the files and where they go, it would be greatly appreciated if you could provide a step by step guide (in a way someone with poor computer skills like me can understand) on how to extract the files to allow the BGM to run.

As for the first aid:

1. Download my mod Climb Mountain - Adriatic Islands - works with current patch (4th download link on top post)
viewtopic.php?f=187&t=59000

2. Extract ZZ file only (I think I made no changes there so it should represent vanilla) to new folder (e.g. on desktop, I never change files in the game folders, rather copy/paste them later). Add NDF file (510064564) from vanilla to same folder.

If you want to make changes directly into game folders, than just replace ZZ file with one in 510061340/510064564

3. Use BGM to open NDF file (510064564) from vanilla and ZZ file from the mod

4. When you are done with modding copy/paste NDF file to 510064564 and ZZ to 510061340/510064564

Hope it helps (as long as you dont use ndf file from my mod, just ZZ, you will get original version of the game)

Hey thank you very much for the help, but step 3 says to use the BGM, but I never was able to get that working on my computer. THe link on the original BGM post also doesn't work for download, do you think you could help me with that?

Sure, The W:AB Noob posted new download link

You need to have MicrosoftNET Framework 4.5 or higher installed on your system before you can use BGM.

Hey thanks for the help, I've downloaded the pack and have it up on winRAR, but I don't know where to go from here. Where do I extract it? Do you think you could give me some detailed steps on how to proceed from here?
