downloaded the vietnam_sog_69.exe from fileplanet.

Installed at the same directory as JA:UB (which was already patched to 1.01.

when I start the game, (closing laptop) I see a jungle map.

but when i load the game(crashed heli) I start in a snowy map and the folowing map (to the right, as I can't select any other) is also snowy, certainly not a jungle.

any help on installing, or what Im doing wrong.

thnx,

S.

If you just ran the automatic installer then you're not doing anything wrong, it's just that it doesn't work very well. At least it never worked properly for me (always got problem with either maps or ammo and guns...).

Anyways, you should try installing it manually:
- apply UB patch
- EXTRACT SOG installer into some directory and then COPY all the files (incl. directory structure) into the UB folder
- same as above for the SOG patches
- run the .bat files you just copied into the UB folder

help,

did like u asked.

extraceted separate, copied the data folder to the JA2UB folder, overwriting.
same with the 2 patches.
ran all bat files. still the same problem.

map looks ok, weapons are also ok, but the battlefield is still the old UB.
did a quick run to the e, all old UB maps.

no don't run them all... sorry i should have mentioned that Wink

if i remember correctly (it's been a while since I installed it) you only need to run the
* burst bug patch
and
* save changes to UB

ps1: the first sector CANNOT be changed, it will always be the crashed helo in snow... you should have jungle after that

ps2: in case you ran the 'get info from' batch you need to copy the MyWeaponsUB.txt from the SOG install back in and run 'save changes to ub' again

Well, just move to the next sector and you'll be right in the midst of the jungle. The problem is, that the first starting sector (Heli crash site) remains the same as the one in UB, because it couldn't be edited. Same with the E-Mails you receive. So all should be OK I think. But don't worry, some guys, including myself :rolleyes: , thought the mod wouldn't work because of that thing.

Hope all is allright, and enjoy this superb Mod. It's been said a lot of times, but this mod really rules Smile .

duh,

I got the problem.

I manually switched the campaign (set JA2ub campaign) to SOG'69.
(it was still on JA:UB)

to bad this wasn't in the readme, otherwise I would have solved the problem earlier.

thnx guys for the help.

(E --> crash site and then walking to the east until the base, got sargent, tylor and spooky Smile
