I have confirmed that the mod installs to the correct folder C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Sid Meier's Civilization IV Beyond the Sword\Beyond the Sword\Mods I CAN successfully load/start a campaign without the mod loaded mods that came WITH the game load just fine. and yet, while it tries to load I get the error message: GFC Error: Failed to Initialize Control Themes When I search this error I find posts claiming the mod isn't installed to the correct location, except in my case, it IS. i checked the civ 4 version under the advanced tab, its 319 Please help this is really frustrating (my friends all installed it and it worked fine for them.) Also, instructions i've seen claim i need to install the mod and THEN patch it, but the only download i have ever found is the patch O file..... ---edit: I have already purged/reinstalled and verified game cache 3 times and deleted / reinstalled the mod in several different ways. No matter what I have tried (including redownloading the installer), the mod has refused to work, always with the same error.
