the patch won't install
lester
When I try to install the 1.1 patch it comes to the homeworld 2 big file and it stops and says:"Old File not found. However, a file of the same name was found. No update done since file contents do not match.

Can som1 tell me how to overcome that problem? I have the same problems as the other people on this forum and i read that you need the patch in order to play the other game modes. Is this problem caused by a pirate copy of the game or vista?
Reinstalling the game is not an option for me cuz i lost the cd.
Anyway your mod is perfect and i enjoy playing it!

If I remeber correctly the patch looks in the registry for a path to the executable. That path is created by the installation, but it might be possible to reproduce it. I will see if I can find the time to make a new installation of it (since I do have the CD) and copy the registry path over to you, pasting it here.

You might also want to look at the troublshooting guides for HW2 at http://forums.relicnews.com/forumdisp...y.php?f=14

I ran the regedit and took a look at the path, and it seems good, just as it was described in the guide on the relic forum. So what should I do now?

Any mention of illegalities gets deleted.

Not sure, was quite a while ago. No tip at Relic Forums?
