to install, there are normally readme files attached.

Normally you extract to like:

D:\GOGGames\Star Wars - Empire At War Gold\EAWX\Mods\Imperial_Civil_War

and then you would need in D:\GOGGames\Star Wars - Empire At War Gold\EAWX a bat-file containing like:
swfoc LANGUAGE=ENGLISH MODPATH=Mods\Imperial_Civil_War

Z3r0x's from where did you get it, can't download it from empireatwar.filefront.com, just get a timeout.

So for republic at war (really easy one)

you shall have downloaded a 1.5 GByte file, use 7zip (http://www.7-zip.org/) to extract it to any place you like. afterwards (you could read the readme ;) you start the republic at war.exe, this is a normal installer, click install, next, accept the license agreement, next, typical, install, delete temp, finish. check on your desktop shall be a shortcut now, doubleclick to start. If you want to play in another language (so not English) let me know ;)

covenant at war?

Ok, just downloaded CAW, you are aware that this is only a mod for skirmish and not for Galactic conquest?

If you know never mind ;)

This one requires a bit of work from your side ;)

You need to have a mod folder existing, so it should look like:

D:\GOGGames\Star Wars - Empire At War Gold\EAWX\Mods
afterwards you extract caw into mods, if you have 7zip installed, double click and just left drag CAV into the mod folder (meaning having an explorer open with the above mentioned patch)

Afterwards (when finished ;) ) go to D:\GOGGames\Star Wars - Empire At War Gold\EAWX

right click and select: create new file (or better, if you already see a bat-file copy it)
afterwards right click edit

replace what is standing in this COPY/NEW file with:

swfoc LANGUAGE=ENGLISH MODPATH=Mods\CaW

save and run, no not run away ;)

If you want to play in another language, select German/French and IIRC Spanish, BUT the mod MUST support it!!!

For Zerox, shall be the same principle....just alter the path and it shall be fine.....

What is strange I did use this side already.....???? O-)

Thank you, not everyone can do everything ;) I am good with this, so why not help ;)

If you need further help, just let me know ;)

Just for sake of it, please mark (I would suggest post 8) as solution, so if somebody else looks for this info they can find directly the answer ;)

actually, could you explain this a bit better?"
right click and select: create new file (or better, if you already see a bat-file copy it)
afterwards right click edit

replace what is standing in this COPY/NEW file with:

swfoc LANGUAGE=ENGLISH MODPATH=Mods\CaW"

i dont know what you mean for some parts of it, such as, how i would edit the folder i just created, and where i would put swfoc LANGUAGE=ENGLISH MODPATH=Mods\CaW

No problem ö=

If you open with left windows key + e an explorer and you go to your D:\GOGGames\Star Wars - Empire At War Gold\EAWX directory. (or whatever it is on your install ;) )

do a right click in the right hand folder and select: New -> text document

(now depending on your settings you might first have to do the following: Alt + V (or selecting view on the menu, properties, View, deselect hide extension for known file-types, meaning it will show xxx.TXT or xxx.BAT)

Open the newly created file for editing (best right click on the file and choose edit) and copy/paste this string into the file and save it.

Afterwards rename the file too CaW.bat

Afterwards you can start your mod by just double-clicking on this bat file.

If you already have a bat file in there it is easier to just copy it. (you can save yourself the hassle of changing the options....;)

Just FYI: A bat file is a special file telling the computer to execute certain commands, so in this case, start the exe swfoc with language Englisch and the path mods\CaW

This step you will have to do for each mod, so that the computer knows which mod to use ;)

So in your case you will need like 3 bat files....

I hope I explained it good enough for a newbie ;)
Hi Guys!
I just downloaded Empire at War: FOC and am running it through my mac via Porting Key :)
I'd like to install Republic at War mod for it but am struggling to understand where the files would go and .bat files having a mac. The program runs great through Porting Key, but getting a Mod to work isn't haha
Any help would be appreciated!

Sorry joshayt never saw your reply ;)

bat files will not work natively on Mac. Porting key? Don't know this one, got a link? ;)

If my assumption is correct, you would also just need to create a subfolder in your empire-directory called mods, extract the RAW files into there (they do have a zip version of RAW as well) and change the startup line you use for starting swfoc with the parameters:

swfoc LANGUAGE=ENGLISH MODPATH=Mods\RAW

RAW, if you called the subdirectory RAW, otherwise replace ;)
