Ok this is the only mod I have trouble with (hence my 1st post here).
I downloaded the DoF file and this is what shows up "DOF_P2_MAIN.pln" but it appears to be in a zip file. If I open the file inside are 74 files none of which have a "pln" extension.
If I drop this whole file into my mod manager it shows up as an archive file and not a plug-in. I tried to copy the 74 files into another folder and name it "DOF_P2_MAIN.pln" but that does not work either.
What am I doing wrong??
Thank you in advance for any help.
G'day vonotto66, I am the creator of the DOF mod, but not its plugin zip.
As I understood the problem, what needed to be done, was this.
The file that was downloaded is named "DOF_P2_MAIN.pln.zip".
It must be renamed to "DOF_P2_MAIN.pln" for it to work as a plugin.
In other words, simply remove the ".zip" from its name.
1st make sure file extensions
for all known file types

All the other Close Combat plugin files
I downloaded from CSO came inside zip files
. When I downloaded DOF to test the download it it came as
a zip file
, not in one. So that may be why it had problems.
If CSO renamed it, removing the ".zip" filename extention
and put it into a zip file
, like the others, before uploading it, maybe there would be no problems.
The 5 files in this DOF FixZip:http://www.closecombat.org/forums/at...achmentid=3556
should replace 5 of the files in DOF_P2_MAIN to correct a technical error with the Stalingrad Finale

Hope this matter is nearing the top of the que in the schedule as it is frustrating having to address this issue over and over
