Hey all!

So, I downloaded the main client for XWAU and got to playing it. However, I was wondering, are there other mods or things I need to download from this site to further enhance my experience with the mod?

Thanks all :

If you look at the News page at when the XWAUCPv1.6 was first released, anything after that date you will need to download and install, as it's not in the craft packs

Also while your on the download page, scroll right to the bottom and you will see Additional Files

Download the XWA Hooks Setup as this has the most recent Hooks

Also you will need to download the most recent DDraw.dll follow the link on the Download page JeremyaFr's xwa_ddraw_d3d11 Git Hub Page

Also for some further Patches/Fixes go to Craft Pack Fixes for DSUCPv2.6/XWAUCPv1.6

Hope that helps

Thank you, Darksaber! I will be sure to do that promptly :D

Also, are there upgrade files to explosion/blaster bolt GFX? Or just ships?

Thanks!


EDIT: Actually, I have to take a step back; I am so so lost.

I downloaded the Hook installer and ran the .exe. However, it did not create a directory called "hooks". I'm...not entirely sure what to do now

I wouldn't call them upgrades, but there are different explosions available from what are in the craft packs, but you'll have to search the forums for those, sorry

The XWAHooksetup

Did you follow the instructions

1) Run XwaHooksSetup.exe.

2) It will create a directory named "Hooks" and download the hooks from GitHub into this directory. To redownload the hooks, delete the directory "Hooks".

3) It will extract the hooks into a directory named "Setup".

4) Copy the content of the "Setup" directory in your XWA install directory.

Now let me ask you a few questions

When you extracted the XwaHooksSetup.zip, did you leave all the files in that directory and then run XwaHooksSetup.exe or did you move any of the files (XwaHooksSetup.exe) to your XWA Dir?
If the answer is you moved the XwaHooksSetup.exe to the XWA Dir, then it won't work without the other files XwaHooksSetup.exe.config
it's best to leave everything in the same DIR and run the XwaHooksSetup.exe from there, it should work creating 2 folders called Setup and Hooks

If it doesn't work and download, your firewall may be blocking XwaHooksSetup.exe from downloading, you'll have to google how to unblock stuff
