When I open the mod manager it doesn't appear, though. I dunno what's going on.

For one, you might want to get this AE version.

viewtopic.php?f=11&t=12203&start=100#p88255

Two, showing all file extensions should help - both to see more info, and to actually change them. Here is a guide from microsoft (easy), no point repeating stuff. You can google "win 7 show file extensions" if you want pictures.

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/wind ... =windows-7

Once you do this, you should be able to see what extension the file actually is, if it's zip, just hit rename and replace 'zip' with 'ftl' after the dot. If it's something else, well, let us know.


Oh, and alternatively to changing file extensions, you could go into file>preferences in Slipstream Mod Manager and check a box next to 'allow_zip'. That should do it, too, whatever seems simpler to you.

Just out of curiosity, are you using Internet Explorer?

Ooohhh, I wasn't aware of an AE version! Thanks so much! Been waiting to play this mod forever :)!
And yes, internet explorer.

Ugh, one more thing. It keeps saying windows can't open the file and asking me to search for something that can. What can I do? Sorry, very, very newb at this. :(

What file? You should just move it into mods and launch the mod manager. After switching the slipstream setting to allow zips (or changing the extension), that is.

And it's most likely IE that's changing your extensions, is it up to date, at least?

Could you try to right click on the download link and pick save as or save link as or something similar? You should get an .ftl file then.

Better yet, download a normal browser that won't try to direct you to some weird sites* and just download the file as it's asked, like firefox or chrome.

*Though to be fair, it does recognize .ftl as an FTL mod file... And recommends the old GMM, but that would just be asking for too much, I suppose.

Hi.

I've downloaded the file but the files are still named as xml files and i can't seem to get it to work even after renaming the files. Could you explain how one is to get the mod to work.
