Did you install "Tools" before/same time installing game?

if not backup your saved game un-install everything then reinstall with "tools"

Tools has a program (DxWnd) that helps with mouse movements in newer operating system. Tools also has option to play game in windowed or fullscreen (fullscreen is Default).

Hi Guys,

Any reason why Ultimate mod 4 is not in the all in one installer. IMO this is the best mod out there. To play i need to install the old BOTF_1.0.2_English_German_e.exe installer and then the UM4 mod afterwards. The new all in one mod installer is far superior so would love to play UM4 using it if possible. Is there a way?

the reason it is not available is the developer updated to Ultimate mod 5 and that is available in all in one installer.

If you really want to play Ultimate mod 4 and you are still able to install it. you might be able to copy the content of the UM4 install folder to the UM5 install folder of All in one? never tried this so don't know if it will work.

Note; you may need to use stbof.ini from UM5 for correct paths.

Hi Guys,
Thanks for the great work! This game has so much potential.
I downloaded and installed Balance of Power and Ultimate Dominion with the all in on 1.01 installer. Everything went smooth (or so I thought), the games launch and play stable. However, SAVING does not work. Neither Autosave nor manual. There is a hitch when attempting to save: can only click on a field but cannot enter a name. When saving with default name I get: "Saving" but in reality nothing happens. I assume some paths are not correct? Any help greatly appreciated, otherwise need to play through in one go !!!

Thank you for the update, Thunderchero!

I am missing the tools functionality, particularly the QD patcher; any where I could go to download and re-install those tools separately?
