  3. Hey, deine Mod in Kombonation mit meiner Mod sieht richtig nett aus 😉
    Ich habe in meiner Mod die Weitsicht erhöht, das Aufploppen von Palmenblättern beseitigt, einige Texturen sind jetzt ersetzt, bzw. hochauflösender (z.B. Felsen, Palmen, Pflanzen), GFX wurde auch optimiert/ verbessert bei z.B. Explosionen von Mechs.


  4. Hey Traxx,
    I cannot get this mod to work.
    Launching from the Chrome Launch tool, I get this error below
    Steam Error
    Application load error 5:0000065434

    Only way to launch game is from steam. ( and yes I have steam up when I use the tool)

    When I launch the game from steam, In-Game I am missing many textures.
    Like this

    and in-game, floor is invisible, some enemies are invisible, I can see through the walls but I only see weird things like floating guns or dark walls.

    • Hello,
      Settings with Chrome Tool (its a very old app from me) affect only the Settings (*.scr files). Changes take only with ‚Save and Apply‘.
      unfortunately, i have only the retail Version ‚1.1.30de‘. I could never get the steam version to test and work with this. I test the game today (2015-08-30) on my GTX970 with Driver 353.06. Yes it’s older but i’m a guy, i don’t look permantly for new driver and intall these. I test it with various Settings in the nVidia Control Panel (Antialiasing/ FXAA/ SSAA on, off). No Model Errors. No Invidible things. I uploaded my Root Files for test. In Chrome (damn Google, why did you named you browser how a game :(, that makes it even harder to look for a problem ) there exists a log Directory. Please open and look the files. Could be a shader Problem?


      • I looked at the logs…
        In „validate.txt“ :
        *** trying fallback shader
        *** fallback loaded
        *** trying fallback shader
        *** fallback loaded
        there are many lines of just this.

        In „TexError.log“
        ERROR: cannot find texture:
        ERROR: cannot find texture:
        ERROR: cannot find texture:
        ERROR: cannot find texture:
        ERROR: cannot find texture:
        ERROR: cannot find texture:

        I hope this is not AMD problem because you have Nvidia and it was perfectly. I have:
        Win7 64-bit Ult.Ed
        16GB RAM
        AMD 280X (15.7 drivers)
        Game is running from HDD.

        Just test game after replacing my Steam files with yours and the game launches properly from the Chrome Tool, but I still have missing textures.

      • You wrote:

        Which Texture….? OK.
        Make a Clean Install and Copy this fresh Install Folder to a other Place on your HD’s.
        Then Overwrite the Root files with my Version and do a Start. Please Look before your start the Game and open Regedit
        go to HKPath:
        and Set the Destinationdir=to your new Location
        If it all is OK, Install The Mod, now you Select the NonSteam Variant.
        Check Game if you had the same Errors. I recommend you grab the Process Monitor and Check the game. For more overview Deselect in Procmon Registry – Network and Thread Activity and Exclude the most Snaps how Exploer.exe and co. So you see which texture is missing. Save This log.

      • I checked this, Don’t Worry, the Souce Files are 1.200 (Came from the Retail Gold Edition). It Showed only the false Version in the main Menu.

        This should work with your Language. Check this under Data\LocalizedStrings.scr

      • Well Traxx I dont know what to say, everything is fixed!?

        I reinstalled the game from Steam for the 4th time and because I was getting the Application Loader error from running the game from the Chrome Tool.
        During the Mod installation I Checked “ Add Chrome SP Shortcut to desktop“ and then right now ran the game from that Desktop Shortcut after „Save and Apply“ on the Chrome after setting up my resolution…Now everything loads, playing at 1920×1080 all textures look fine and working.
        I think there was some Win7 permission issues running the game from the Tool or running the game from ChromeLaunch.exe or ChromeSinglePlayer.exe

        Well this is awesome, thank you very much for the Mod, the game looks so good now, very clear not pixel blurry like it was at 1280×960 on my 1080p monitor.
        Hopefully this helps someone else also, During the Mod installation make sure to add a tick on the desktop shortcut, run game from there to avoid permission issues after setting up your settings using the Tool config.
        Many of my other games work fine running .exe but only game with problem like this is Baldur’s Gate, the disc one, I cant run from the game dir, only works if run from Desktop shortcut.

        Thank You Traxx, awesome Mod.
