Genesis expansion project version 2 help please

Unread postby TanithCrane » Thu, 1st May 2014 21:02

I am a massive fan of JPOG :grin: and i recently downloaded the genesis expansion pack version 2 it changes the behaviour of dinos and adds tomb stones and things to the game however the terrain is awfull :C: theres hardly any ferns and they seem to be just in clumps and the grass looks really dark and poor quality .. basically the mod looks nothing like what it did in the trailer the water was clear and there were clouds... i hate it and i know ive downloaded it wrong thats prob why it has turned out so horrid heres a pick of my ruined game ( sorry if the pick hasnt shown not sure what i was doing lol )



i followed the instructions correctly i downloaded it and opened it in winwar i then double clicked on version 2 and it came up with the expansion project instructions ... when it finished downloading my game wasnt changed at all so i after a lot of stress managed to find the mod file and i copied and pasted the unit folders into the original game ones and overwrite the files and then i opened the game and it was all really dark and horrible :( can anyone who has downloaded this mod successfully tell me what i might have done wrong and how to get it looking like it should heres a link to what it should look like http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hXuxA0h2s9o .... seriously my game looks like the big bang ! :(

or it very well could be just ive got a crap graphics card lol ive got a lenovo ideapad 8gb ram and 1tb hardrive but ive only got a AMD radeon graphics card
thanks for the helps

Go to the JPOG folder, open the "Setup" subfolder and run setup.exe. Then choose the highest settings for each field (and check the boxes for reflective water and such) and try again. Even a less than stellar graphics card should run a game this old fairly decently.

Hmm, I don't think that's supposed to happen. Try starting a new island and see if you can do that stuff then.

I honestly have no idea. The GEP certainly didn't do that to me. Do you have any other mods installed?
