    O2M is an advanced visual tool that can create and edit mods for Master of Orion 2: Battle at Antares. It's built as a front-end for the Unofficial Fan Patch 1.50, which in return fixes most game issues and crashes.

    Mods can greatly enhance your play experience and bring this very nice game back to life. O2M hides away the complicated file management as much as possible, making modding available even for the most inexperienced users. You can quickly share mods with other people by using the import / export options.

    Moreover, O2M provides a game launcher that allows you to easily apply mods and start the game with a simple click.

    Have fun modding and playing Master of Orion 2!

    Ponkyo, your mod looks great! I'm excited to try it. Can you help me with an error? I'm using Windows 7, and I get this when I click "Launch Game:"

    Also, everything on the "Modules" menu is grayed out except "Launcher:"

    I can't access any of the other modules, even with the Ctrl+ hotkeys.

    Thanks for any help!

    This error pops up after I clear the first one:

    You need to install DOSBox, MOO2 is too old to run alone in Windows, besides O2M only works for the DOS version. Then go to O2M > File > Settings > Clear Settings, run O2M again then select the correct DOSBox executable when asked (you probably have selected the wrong file, it should be something like C:\Program Files (x86)\DOSBox-0.74\DOSBox.exe).

    And all the stuff in the Module menu are only available when you edit a mod.

    Hope this helps!

    Thank you! Both errors are gone, and the game actually launches now, so yes- that helped a lot.

    The modules are all still grayed out, so I still can't edit the tech tree:

    Have you seen this before?
