I'm running the Steam version, JA2 Gold. I installed all the patches and SOG 69 to JA2 UB's folder, set the campaign and all that jazz. When trying to launch the game I get this error http://i.imgur.com/fLppU.jpg

Well of course the bloody CD can't be found, it's a Steam game. I'd be worried if a CD was found! Mad


Any ideas?

I should note that I tried to use the unSafedisc that came with the download pack but I can't select JA2UB with it...

While I don't have the games from Steam, what exactly are the patches you mention, and why do you need to apply them? SOG '69 is a campaign that shouldn't require a modified executable, so steam's default should work just fine. If it still doesn't, you can pick up JA2:UB (along with a few other games) for as little as $0.01 for the next ~12 hours at GOG.com, which should give you a hassle free experience as well.
My guess is that one of the "patches" you mention modifies the executable to one of the original, which does require the cd to be present.

According to lockie's instructions (found here [url=http://]http://www.ja-galaxy-forum.com/board/ubbthreads.php/topics/78146/SOG_69_download.html#Post78146[/url] ) the game needs to be patched. I tried simply installing the SOG files and selecting the SOG campaign, and while it confirms I'm playing the SOG campaign, the game just plays with the normal campaign.

Sorry, I'm just a little confused.

Assuming you mean this post, then the 2nd step shouldn't be necessary, since Steam's version should already be updated to 1.01
That step is probably the one that modifies the executable, so skipping this should make the game work.

Installed the mod files without patching the game. Then game confirms that I'm playing the SOG campaign but the game still starts out with the UB campaign, the helicopter crash, all the characters are from the original UB.

I'm sure the issue is something I'm doing, but I'm not sure what it could be.... Spent all day cursing at my laptop, trying to get this to work. :compsmash:

Now that we fixed the exe problem, let's go for the campaign.
I assume that you are using Win7 (or Vista) and Steam is installed in Program Files (x86)
Go to steam's directory, right click on it, go to properties, Security tab, and give yourself (or everyone) full control over steam folder. This seems like a UAC problem, which will create more trouble for you in the long run.

After a bit of tinkering and lots of swearing, I do believe I've gotten it to work. None of the enemies seem to be dropping any kit, not sure if that's intentional. Pretty fun so far. Thanks for the help!
