    I’ve installed this Mod, played “Greenskins Map” without problems but most of the other Maps crashing if we want to play it… my selfmade map too.

    Is there a way to fix it?

  2. Berserker

    Elves mission 2 ends and never load mission 3.

    1. MIRCEA

      yep … that’s exactly what happens to me too with this mod and was a solution was never found since this problem persist for more than 1 or 2 years now

        So I was lucky that I tried a map that worked during testing. I will add information about the error of the modification.
