Postby CSO_Yellow_1 » Mon Jan 23, 2006 11:07 pm

Anyone can tell me why i cant play ostmod?? I change the folder name to .pln put it into plugins but the configurator keeps on considering it as a file type instead of a plug-in one.

Do you mean you changed the folder name or file name? Are there any .zip files in the plugin folder?

CSO_Yellow_1 may be referring to the Der Ost Front mod.

Seriously, this is easiest fixed if you just fixed the problem at the CSO download end. Then we would never need to explain the solution again to this never ending question.

All the other Close Combat plugin files I downloaded came inside zip files. When I downloaded DOF to test the download it it cames as a zip file, not in one. So that is why it had problems. The site server automatically added the zip extentions or something.

If CSO renamed it, removing the ".zip" filename extention and put it in a zip file, like the others, before uploading it, there would be no problem.

The 5 files in this FixZip:
http://www.closecombat.org/forums/a...tachmentid=3556
should replace 5 of the files in DOF_P2_MAIN.pln to correct a technical error.
This must be done, before it is zipped and re-uploaded.

Once this is done, the DOF1 download will be 100% problem free.
The DOF2 mod's plugin download is back up.

You can download the Der Ost Front 2 mod (22.90 MB) at the top of this page (DOF Version 2 MAIN)

You can also now download the DOF2 MAPPACK (762.11 MB) on this page

I'll add it to the schedule...

It's Internet Explorer thant does this, not the Server. If you use other Browsers, this does not happen (so far as we know).

I understand the confusion.
