In The GUI Readme File
Short Cut Explaind For Resistance & CWA
The readme file states to edit the shortcut like this
many people had a problem with this because they didn't follow what was said
(instead, people got creative, or should i say they tried to)
I Saw people deleting this
"C:\Program Files\Codemasters\Operation Flashpoint\
then trying this
totallyoblivious to the " they left in
when you right click the ShortCut and Select Properties,
it looks like this.. in the TOP LINE
Target:"C:\Program Files\Codemasters\Operation Flashpoint\FLASHPOINTRESISTANCE.EXE"
You Delete the WHOLE Target: LINE!!!
and just put in
Windows Re-Creates the WHOLE line again PROPERLY for you
Because it knows how to do this from the other LINE that says Start in: which is
"C:\Program Files\Codemasters\Operation Flashpoint"
You can also SKIP the code masters logo & the intro video by adding -nosplash and free up some game lag by adding -nomap
It Would Look Like This When Your Done
"C:\Program Files\Codemasters\Operation Flashpoint\FLASHPOINTRESISTANCE.EXE" -mod=awm -nosplash -nomap
BUT AGAIN... YOU ONLY PUT IN THIS
FLASHPOINTRESISTANCE.EXE -mod=awm -nosplash -nomap
the comment box is a "Mouse Over" option
IE: if you type in their Airwolf The Game
when YOU put your mouse over the short cut, the little windows tool tip shows the comment
(handy place to leave notes about other software "on their shortcuts" mm u learn something new every day)
So for CWA it would be? DUH... Keep Up jeeeezzz
ColdWarAssault.exe -mod=awm -nosplash -nomap
Q) So how do i run OFP/CWA In a WINDOW?
LEARN THIS BECAUSE ITS COOL....
DEFINE & HELP KEEP YOUR GAME TIDY!!
-mod (Inform the EXE/Game to LOAD files in the following mod folder)
= (A Game Engine Define for the mod command,
Which basically means the = sign equals "this following word" is the Name of a folder i want to load) awm (name of mod folder)
NOTE: Inside A Mod Folder you MUST have an ADDONS folder
C:\Program Files\Codemasters\Operation Flashpoint\awm\addons
C:\Program Files\Bohemia Interactive\Arma Cold War Assault\awm\addons
so what if we make a folder called 3RDPartyAddons, infact lets call it @3RDPartyAddons
this way its dead easy to find in the game folder as its the first folder
when folder arranged by name
remember make an addons folder inside their to
C:\Program Files\Codemasters\Operation Flashpoint\@3RDPartyAddons\addons
C:\Program Files\Bohemia Interactive\Arma Cold War Assault\@3RDPartyAddons\addons
and put all our other mods in their..then use this parameter after the EXE name & 1 SPACE
-nosplash - nomap -mod=@3RDPartyAddons -mod=awm
you can have multiple mod folders, and make different short cuts....
you can also change the short cut ICON, their are Airwolf ICO files out their
(I released many "true colour" versions a while back)
Want to use 2 Addon Folders for AWM?
so you can choose between 1.05 Beta and 2.0C
when you LOAD the game?
make a Folder Called RAWM and FAWM
Put 1.05 into RAWM
and put 2.0 into FAWM
(DON'T have ANY version of awm.pbo in the actual AWM folder)
have 1.05 in the Real folder "RAWM" and the 2.0 in the Fake folder FAWM
Then make TWO short Cuts, One Pointing to EACH FOLDER
now you can have both versions installed & the one you need loading when you run the game
THAT WONT WORK WHY WONT IT WORK?
Because your stupid....
MAKE SURE "RAWM" and "FAWM"
BOTH HAVE AN "addons" FOLDER INSIDE & PUT 1 pbo IN THEIR
awmc.pbo (pilots) can just STAY in the AWM Folder
AND make sure the AWM folder is still on BOTH the shortcuts you make :P
C:\Program Files\Codemasters\Operation Flashpoint\RAWM\addons
C:\Program Files\Codemasters\Operation Flashpoint\FAWM\addons
C:\Program Files\Bohemia Interactive\Arma Cold War Assault\RAWM\addons
C:\Program Files\Bohemia Interactive\Arma Cold War Assault\FAWM\addons
Use one or the Other to launch the game
depending on what version of AWM you wish to fly
-nosplash - nomap -mod=@3RDPartyAddons -mod=awm -mod=RAWM
-nosplash - nomap -mod=@3RDPartyAddons -mod=awm -mod=FAWM
REMEMBER THE EXE NAME....
How about an Airwolf Icon (for the ShortCut) ??
