My Install Helper v1.0

Or just Installer v1.0. It helps anyway. wink.gif

Makes reinstalling faster and easier. Makes installing new mods easier (if map developers use it). It will work as it should if you don't start uninstalling stuff. If you do, it's better to reinstall. It's packed with stuff. Too much to list here. Just read those readme's to find a readme that fit your needs. A small download, about 82 kb. I was supposed to make this a console app. It became a "windows" tool with a custom dialog (borrowed and modified ofcourse) and a proper status window instead. Thanks to Steve for the COL format.

About stability: Dunno. It's a heavy tool and I haven't tested all the possibilities yet. Some status texts are "lacking" (not very informative). If you get any problems with it, I need to know.

Here it is:

http://home.c2i.net/...BWInstaller.zip
http://home.no.net/b...BWInstaller.zip

Ok there are some updates for the install scripts or new install scripts for this very usefull tool they can be found here in this topic by Spaceensitein and Xploderand you can also download them from this link here these were put together and made my Delfi they will be for almost all lots.

Maby. If they can make it work. You never know. blush.gif
It's very helpful if you aren't a noob too. It fixed a problem I had with the park - the water was solid (or maby it's supposed to be solid ? blush.gif )

A great tool for the Lazzy and n00bs.

Any idea when you'll have the script for the Police station?

Thanks.

I decided to give this a shot since my game was crashing after testing one my mods. It turned a 20 minute job to less than a minute one. Good work!

I've tried to install them using this and my game gets about, 3/4 of the way to the end and then crashes, I will try installing the first part manually and then use the installer to do the lots correctly.
I know its me because when I had it on before it gets about half the way on the pink bar then the game comes on.

Does anyone know what I have done wrong.

You must have installed incorrectly, the above scripts and Barton's work fine. Follow these instructions to make sure the files install correctly.

Copy + paste the script into notepad, save as BWInstall.txt

Put the BWInstall.txt file in the extracted directory.

Execute the installer and wait for the 'All Done' command.
