The PUTIN mod.
A new version of modern day scenario for 2016
With the arrival of russian forces in Syria in 2015, a very interesting strategic situation has developed in the middle east. The mod starts in June 01, 2015.
I'm using the E3 map, more units to suit today's type of warfare (using terrorists and irregular troops), to create a whole new scenario. After months of hard toil, this mod is almost ready for release.
GRAPHICS: MrNazar, sanmartijn
EVENTS: JulianSol, Hirz, Lichy1987, novapaddy, derekg36, korsteeni.
ACKNOWLEDGEMENT: I am very grateful to hansnery for the use of his Turning Point mod version of the E3 map, this gave me most of the modern country borders and saved lots of work. I am also grateful for his permission to use the graphics from the TP mod, done originally by MrNazar.
A 16-bit movie is very difficult to get to work these days, and JulianSol did a great job overcoming lots of difficulties, to deliver a great movie. There is only one problem. When the movie finishes, it gives this error on the screen. Simply key Enter to get past it to the game.
ONE MORE THING:
You play the game and you save it. When loading your save-game, you will occasionally encounter an error. If the game looks it is has frozen, simply key i and Enter, to bypass the error. This error is a bug and no-one knows what is causing it.
I have tested the mod, loaded save-games, played that save-game, saved again, and loaded that saved save-game and the mod has run with no problems.
With Darkest Hour version 1.04 installed.
Extract the mod using 7zip, as it was packed using 7zip. Beware of a mod folder within a mod folder.
When you have the putin mod folder and have checked it contains the game files, and not yet another putin mod folder; copy and paste this folder into the DH/Mods folder. Use the Launcher to start the game, select the putin mod and play.
IF THERE ARE ANY FIXES BELOW, please add them to the correct game folders.
The Turning Point mod (E3 map) recommended using the 4GB patch. See: http://www.ntcore.com/4gb_patch.php
I have used it and have had no problems with it whatsoever.
It might help with your pc's memory dealing with all those 8000 provinces in the E3 map.
Extract it and then open. It will ask for a file, choose Darkest Hour.exe (not the Launcher).
