I forgot how to install my own MOD
Haha... so I ran the install and there's a Robotech.vp file that goes into the folder... but not all the mod is showing up, just the music it looks like. I don't remember how any of this works. :)

You don't actually have to spend time answering me as it's a silly thing, but if you do... hey cool :)

I want to show the MOD to some game dev people I met that like Robotech.

Oh here's the link if you want to try it: http://www.robotechlan.com/freespace2/downloads1.html

The main selection screen should look like the SDF1 and yeah it's obvious when it's installed.

Re: I forgot how to install my own MOD
Your mod only included 640x480 interface art.  If you start the game in 1024x768, you won't see any special interface changes. :)

Also, if you run your mod in FSO, there are a bunch of debug errors.  You should consider fixing those.

Re: I forgot how to install my own MOD
Thanks for your reply.

I have never used FSO -- it was before my time. I just wanted to see if my MOD would run again. THANKS for the tip about the resolution -- hopefully that will fix part of it. I still didn't see my ships and missions but this was, after all, 16 years ago. I just wanted to maybe take some screenshots for memories sake.

Re: I forgot how to install my own MOD
You're welcome. :yes:

You might be able to get some help fixing the mod if you ask on the forums or on IRC or Discord.
