hi reddogg2105,

what option did you select during install?
is this happening on vanilla or a mod?
have you ever played BOTF on this laptop?

Hello Thunderchero,


it wont even let me open the installer to choose from vanilla or mod.
Once I downloaded the all in one installer from the install page
it wont execute the BOTF_All_in_One_1.0.0.exe.
yes this is my first time trying to run a BOTF file on this laptop.

check MD5 hash to see if it matches

here is an online MD5 checker

if it does not match re-download and recheck MD5

The MD5 hash was wrong, so I uninstalled it and
re downloaded the installer.
Just ran it and its working like a champ!

Thanks Thunderchero
