That file (*\76561198798538238\1273995541\HWG-0.1.big) is corrupted, delete the *.big archive and don’t fiddle with the launcher while it’s copying over a fresh copy from the steam download folder.

How can I get the mod to work?


(Taiidan Republic Mod) #6

Did you try what @Nathanius said?


(Hero Crafter 1987 (Homeworld Universal Conquest Mod)) #8

I tried that but I still had the same error. Although, the mod didn’t crash when I wasn’t using it through the steam version.

the third step here contains the complete steps I use in cases like this https://steamcommunity.com/workshop/filedetails/discussion/636887139/135508398034298568/


[MOD] Homeworld Fulcrum 0.3.0.0: Single player mission available
(Taiidan Republic Mod) #10

Are all your players experiencing this problem with your mod, or just you? If it is lots of people, you need to reupload the mod. If just you, deleting and resubscribing should do the trick…


(Hero Crafter 1987 (Homeworld Universal Conquest Mod)) #11

its everyone


(Siber) #12

If that’s the case it may be an issue with the mod building/uploading. Perhaps try uploading the mod again to a fresh workshop item and see if the issue persists?


(Hero Crafter 1987 (Homeworld Universal Conquest Mod)) #13

the issue still persists


(Hero Crafter 1987 (Homeworld Universal Conquest Mod)) #14

Could it be the size of the mod that is causing the issue?


(Taiidan Republic Mod) #15

How big is it?

You could try manually extracting the Steam big file to see what is missing…


(Liuruoyang1995=Lone Wolf Akela) #16

As far as I know, it seems your mod is larger than the 2GB upper bound, which should be the problem.


(Taiidan Republic Mod) #17

You can get round this by splitting your mod into 2 mods and making one a pre-requisite of the other. But I would suggest looking for efficiencies first - your mod is only just above 2gb…


(Hero Crafter 1987 (Homeworld Universal Conquest Mod)) #18

Ok Dom2, that’s what I’m doing, but i’m spliting it into packs and so far there are 3 of them.


(Hero Crafter 1987 (Homeworld Universal Conquest Mod)) #19

Guys… the steam version of this mod wont be out in a LONG time

this mod is around 5gb…
