Switching Mods

Post by Michael » Thu Sep 19, 2013 1:11 am

Hi all,
I have been on hiatus from playing bz2 for a few years now but I have been following the changes. I am wondering if MM5 still works with the newest bz2 or if there is another way of changing mods quickly. I am trying to join games but the mods are all over the place it seems. I don't know what G66 version people are playing or if it handled differently now. Any help would be great. Thanks!

It still works, but on windows Vista+ you need to either A: Have BZ2 not under Program Files, or B: Run mm5 as administrator.

Install the cd to a folder under the hardrive.
Install this patch:
viewtopic.php?f=7&t=1851

Use this G66 installer:
viewtopic.php?f=5&t=6

Use this G66 patch by unzipping it to the main folder:
viewtopic.php?f=5&t=1829

MM5 is a relic from the days of Windows 98. If mods come with an installer that sets up start menu shortcuts, switching mods is as fast as picking the right shortcut from the start menu.

Thanks all for the help!

GSH's advice was the most simply, haha. I didn't realize that it installed icons now. I found them, hopefully I am all set. THanks again!
