I’ve been looking around for a while but have yet to find any solution, so I figured I’d start a thread in case others are having the same problem.
I want to run some of the awesome mods the community has made for Homeworld 2 Classic, but no matter what I try the game does not launch. When trying to run a mod using the launcher, I set everything up, hit play, get the windows loading spinny cursor, then… nothing. It never loads into the game, I never even get to a black screen, it just quits without giving me any error message.
I’ve tried running them from the command line using the -mod flag and explicit file paths, to the same result.
Running mods for Remastered using the launcher works perfectly. I am not using an AMD card.
From looking through the error logs, it seems that when I try to run any mod (I’ve tried 3 so far) the game runs into an (or some) errors while loading the LUAs.
The only thing I haven’t tried yet is uninstalling and reinstalling the whole game, but I’d rather not do that if I don’t have to because I’m at University and the wifi is crap.
I’m stumped as how to fix this because the same mods seem to work just fine for other people. Like I said, I can run Remastered mods just fine, and I can also play Homeowrld 1 and 2 classic without mods fine.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
EDIT: I found one mod that seems to work, the Mass Effect Reborn mod… none of the others I have tried do, however
