I use JSGME for mods, lets you swap mods very easily.You just have to remember to roll back the mods before updating the game, which is one mouse-click.

Nice I'd not seen that.

I am not a big mod user in general so it passed me by.

Hey pinetree, have you applied this mod to 9.4 and played yet?

I put it in, then could not kill any aliens. Now I have verified the install, and I can kill aliens again.

Is there anything you change that might cause this?

Hmmm, dunno. I just test to see if the game doesn't crash when the characters are generated. This mod shouldn't affect gameplay at all as soldiernames.xml hasn't any game stats in it and strings.xml is just that, strings of text. You didn't muck around with the armory program by any chance? You might have changed something there?

No, this is the only mod I had done.

I noticed that my changes to the number of civvies had not been reset by the updat, then when I verified, they were reset. Perhaps I just did not get a complete update or something. I'll reload this mod and check again.

So, what about all those files in the assets folder in the zip? Are they not required for the mod?

The zip in his link above (#53) only has two files in it for me.

There is no assets folder in that zip file.

Hmm... I wonder where that assets folder came from?

Now I have had a look at the two zip files I have downloaded there is no assets folder in either of them.

But my Xtended soldiers folder had an assets folder from somewhere? Maybe I did some fat fingers stuff somehow.

Sorry pinetree for making your mod look bad for something I must have donemyself.

U.S.A. :

Army Special Forces:

laos in the 60's and early 70's.

dominican republic '65.

korea '66-'68

cambodia early '70s

Marine Force Recon:

dominican republic '65.

laos in the 60's and early 70's.

cambodia early '70s

SEALs:

laos in the 60's and early 70's.

cambodia early '70s

i would imagine the others were in laos and cambodia, though i am unsure.

just the us forces, maybe i'll try to find other countries's little wars from '60-'79 later.

Update for 10.0. While using another editing program I found a bunch of special characters that slipped through the net so I've corrected those. Download from here:

Could you make some Swedish troops also? You could use the kongo crisis as battle experince. Both fighter pilots and soldiers were involved in lethal and violent fighting there during the sixties. 9 battalions were sent to Congo and 6000 Swedes did service. Both special forces and ordinary troops. :)

I might do, my free time is very limited these days. I can barely find time just updating the mod and that's just a 5 minute job :)
