Problems with standard update & NMM mods


Recommended Posts

When you say it "doesn't work", are you sure? Because, as far as I can remember (it's been a while, so I may be wrong on this), the Standard Upgrade reskins the existing weapons and generally makes them look nicer, rather than giving you a ton of new guns to play with. My point is that it may be working just fine and you just haven't noticed any glaringly obvious differences with the mod switched on....

You are wrong on this one. Not only the texture is new, it's a complete weapon mod.

Thanks for the replies guys!! Sorry I'm shmall kine ignorant because I'm new to these games but I eally appreciate the instant feedback.

Yes, I do have Desert Seige and Island Thunder but haven't gotten to those yet. Do I need to install them now for the mod to work? I also went into options and activated the mods. The problem I'm having is with the G8 and Nishi mods activated my GR will begin to start and then just quit and closeup. With the standard upgrade it begins loading and then after awhile my PC just seems to stall out and the game doesn't start! What gives??

Yeah make sure IT and DS are installed and activated. The mods will be looking for files that don't exist so they crash. Most mods require these expansion packs. IT will patch you up to 1.3 so you'll need to grab 1.4 to get the most out of your mods. :thumbsup:

:whistle: Thanks for all the help! I have a couple other dumb ?'s for you experienced players. Now that I've got these mods working do I just activate one mod at a time or can I run several of them at a time. How does activating a "total conversion" mod affect me if I'm in the middle of GR1?

Most mods can be used in combinations, though some kit files might overwrite )not sure no that one). If you start using a total conversion in the middle, there shouldn;t be any problems, but turning them off during campaign might cause some troubles.

;) Thanks PB! Have you installed the standard update mod? I tried installing the patch but it keeps saying that "there is nothing to update" although I do have the SU folder in mods folder. Do I install it into Ghost Recon/Mods or just Ghost Recon/?

Do you have Desert Siege and Island Thunder activated? Also if you do go ingame and when it crashes go in your main GR folder and look for a file called "ike.txt". Open it and copy everything from there to here.

I can't remember exactly, just try it in the SU folder, if that doesnt work, try the mods folder, and if it still can;t find it try the ghostrecon folder. gotta love trial and error :P
