What to expect when running new installer.



When you first execute installer you will be prompted to select the language to install.

Image

You have 2 options English or German

Note; since most mods were released in English only, When German is selected, the installer will install as much German as possible. Some mods this is very limited. example; with Ultimate Dominion mod, when Dominion or Federation is played it would be still mostly English, while Cardassins, Klingons and Romulans would be only 30% English.

Vanilla, Error correction mod, Balance of power and Planet mod have full German versions.



next is the new license agreement

you must accept before continuing.



Next, you will need to select the "Base folder location used by installer"

Default location is the same as the original game used (C:\BOTF)

If you want to change this location you will need to change location each time installer is executed.

Note; each component folder is added automatically by installer. This is only base folder location



Next, you need to select what you want to install on this execution of the installer from the list.

Info on DxWnd proxy



The proxy use 3 files to allow proper running of game



Fullscreen proxy uses these 3 files

dxwnd.dll (main proxy file, same file for fullscreen and windowed modes)

dxwnd.dxw (configuration file with settings, different file for fullscreen and windowed modes)

winmm.dll (this is the fullscreen proxy file, different file for windowed modes)



Windowed proxy uses these 3 files

dxwnd.dll (main proxy file, same file for fullscreen and windowed modes)

dxwnd.dxw (configuration file with settings, different file settings for fullscreen and windowed modes)

ddraw.dll (this is the windowed proxy file, different file for fullscreen modes)



If you are wanting to switch between fullscreen and windowed mod

all 3 file need to be removed from install path Before adding other proxy files (files are in tools folder "dx proxy files" folder)

Note; to use DxWnd GUI or to add MPR++, the proxy files should not be present in install path

Or you can uninstall and reinstall and select different option.



I hope everyone enjoys,

thunderchero
