Re: How to install & Download Main Multi-Installer and mods

I need to redownload the multi installer main game, so I can play mods again. I don't think my CD will work with them correct? So when it says to use a multi installer, and it was suggested Fire Fox, is that the internet browser?

I had to redo my computer and forgot to save everything. I don't rememeber what multi installer I used, so I want to make sure if the Fire Fox browser is all I need.

Yep, use "downthemall" plugin for firefox, and download the main multiinstaller. You won't need a CD.

Can someone please help me? I've downloaded this to my laptop using google chrome and its intatlling now buts its finding alot of corrupt files. Mainly .wav, .avi, & .dat files. I have tried installing it with both settings options and its doing the same thing. I read on here that it takes 5 mins to install but this has been installing for 2 hours now and its not even half way done. I havent been able to leave my laptop because every few minutes theres another error coming up saying theres a corrupted file. What can I do to fix this i am dying to play this game again.

Hello MartinTF, welcome to BOTF forum ! :D . I would recommend to download it again, if it is possoble with mozilla with the downthemall plugin (you can find in mozilla plugins). I don´t why your installation had so many erros, never happened to me, maybe the download had some erros from the beginning :?

The main multi installer has no changes to game play. but it creates backup file that allows you to install a mod without swapping files.

Welcome MartinTF,
Uninstall the main multi installer and reinstall using software not hades. Also make sure any mod you install has the software option clicked for install. This should solve your problem
