GamersGate Order of Installation

Post by chipmunk » Thu Mar 20, 2014 0:03 am

So, I had to re-install ParaWorld again, since it hadn't been working since, like, November or something.. It's working fine now, but I've yet to put the Boosterpack and CEP in. Since I'm using the GamersGate version, should I install things in a different order? I read somewhere around here that the Boosterpack can't be used with the GamersGate version?

I wouldn't mind, but I don't want to have to reinstall again, since it takes something like two hours to just download the installer from GamersGate.

In the Boosterpack 2.0 Download Thread you can find a second Boosterpack file. This one is compatible with the Gamersgate version ;)

Ah, thank you! Can't believe I'd never noticed that second one before.

So, now that's in, I can install CEP, and that'll convert the Boosterpack and Skirmish to use the SEAS and stuff and work fine?
Sorry for being so incessant with this - I'm just really trying to avoid another two hours of installation :P

No problem ;) By the way you can find the gamersgate install files in one of the temp folders on your pc :)

Yes, it should work now

PW -> Boosterpack2.0 'Mini' -> CEP -> Mappack

To play with Boosterpack use the old PW shortcut(s), for CEP (SEAS) use the CEP one. The SDK shortcuts will start the map editors

Your Gamersgate version is the Gold one, right?

Yeah, I'm using Gold. That's all working smashingly now. Thanks!
(This install also seems to have finally reset all the levels I accidentally ruined in the SDK)
