Well what sort of mod is it? Vehicle? Mission? Weapon? Sounds? There are alot of different types of mods each of them requiring a different method to install. Didn't the mod come with a read me file? Installation instructions are usually found there.


Also have you tried looking in the Tutorial Forum? There are alot of installation guides in there.

If it's cars you wanna install, take a look at this. Although it's for VC, Just use IMGTool 2 instead of 1.3 and it's the same process.


For maps the installation process is very similar, just you'll have to mess with .ide and .ipl lines, as well as a bit of .col stuff, instead of handling.cfg, vehicles.dat etc like you would with a car mod.


Most other mods are just a case of replacing files.


Make sure you backup your files 1st. We won't dig you out of a hole by uploading the original files if you forget to back up your own.
