Help with DOF mod install.

Postby vonotto66 » Sat Mar 11, 2006 4:18 pm

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.

First, read the second sticky thread in the Tech Help Forum.

Extract the DOF_P2_MAIN.pln from the zip file to the Plugins folder of your Configuration Manager. Run the Configuration Manager and it will handle all the further extractions and file swapping.

First, I did read it.

Second when I download the zip and open it there is no file in it that says pln.

Ok, they get uploaded in differernt ways some times. I should have read your post a little closer. Put the entire zip file in the Plugins folder then change the .zip extention to .pln.

rename the .zip extension to .pln then run the config. manager.

Give the HD time to spin as config. manager sorts it out.

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 are visible.

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:

should replace 5 of the files in DOF_P2_MAIN to correct a technical error with the Stalingrad Finale operation.

I have corrected the plugin and now it is inside a zip file.

Somply download the zip and inzip DOF_P2_MAIN.pln to your \plugins folder.

This is a relatively slow server but.....

Down load Der OST Front mod for CC3 HERE


edit: currently uploading to FTP \user uploads.... so should be available from CSO soon.
