No, I had finished the WoD Stranded (actually, the second runthrough for an "alternate" ending). Afterwards, I installed both ASW1 and 2. Then, I ran ASW1, got the initial splash screen, then the error message. I didn't get in far enough to select or create a pilot!
I got "quick" and uninstalled FS2, re-installed, and installed both WoD, Stranded, ASW1 ansd ASW2, then started with ASW1, and no problems.
As a consultant in medical devices, I took the quick route via the re-installs, as I am constantly on the move and have little time for enjoyments like FSO! Next "event", I will have to pay the piper and do the log file properly.
This was the first time I have ended one mod, and had a problem starting another straight away, so I either wrecked the pilot file, or WoD didn't release me!!
And, I forgot about the ini! (red-faced thank you)!
Is "1_Shuriken.vp" correct, or is it "Shuriken.vp"??
You'll cringe, though...ASW's are so good.....I wish you would stay through ASW10!
Many thanks for the reply...even more for great mods.
Death from the Crease!
