Purpose: This thread is intended to help users who are unsure how to go about installing Fall from Heaven 2, or who have attempted to install Fall from Heaven 2 but failed. ------------- Using this thread: This thread is divided into sections, based on different tasks that may be required to successfully install Fall from Heaven 2. The sections are presented in the order in which they should be completed - however, you may not need to follow the instructions in all of the sections. • If you have tried installing FfH2, but your attempt was not successful, begin with the section Recovering from a failed installation attempt. • If you need to install the Mod for the first time, begin with the section Preparing to install Fall from Heaven 2. • If you have installed FfH2, and it is working correctly, but you need to install a new patch, then proceed to the section Fall from Heaven 2 Patch installation walkthrough. • If you have a working installation of FfH2 but have not yet installed the Media Pack, and you would like to try it out, you need only follow the instructions in the section Fall from Heaven 2 Media Pack installation walkthrough. ------------- Vital Concepts: The instructions given in this thread assume your understanding of these concepts. Your successful use of this thread depends upon that understanding. . [path] In the sections below I refer several times to "[path]", for example "[path]\Beyond the Sword\Mods". "[path]" is used to represent the path to your install of Civ4, which will be different depending upon which version of Civ you have and whether you accepted the default install path. For example, on my system I have installed Civ4 to "F:\Civ IV" and so in my screenshots you will see that for me "[path]" is "F:\Civ IV" and "[path]\Beyond the Sword\Mods" is "F:\Civ IV\Beyond the Sword\Mods". It is important that you know the correct path to your installation of Civ4, and that you replace "[path]" with that path while following this guide.
