@odin kree:

I need to know the status of the mod installation. When you say you deleted the installer, did you uninstall through Windows, or did you just delete the folder manually?

The worst that can happen, is if the mod is already installed and you try to install again with a fresh installer. I don't think this happened in your case, because you didn't get the mod files until I gave you the working link the other day.

Just to be sure, please check a couple of your X3TC game folders:

1. Look in X3TC game folder\loadscr. Is there a file named loadscr_old.zip?
2. Look in X3TC game folder\mov. Do any of following exit: orig_00044.pck, orig_00812.dat, orig_00812.dat, t2_00812.dat, t2_00813.dat?

Please let me know what you see.

If those file don't exist, it means the mod never got installed and the issue is easy to remedy. Once I hear back from you, I will attempt to help you sort this out.

This means the mod did install. One more check: Do the files transcendII.cat and transcendII.dat exist in the game directory\mods mods folder?

If so, the game should run. Make sure you Select Mod Package at game startup. No need to run the installer again right now. We can get that working later if/when you want to switch back to vanilla game.

If still not working, I'm not sure what to do since I don't have the game to verify. I don't know what the message you encountered "account already exists" refers to.

Odin: You could start over with fresh install, but it looks like you are almost there. From what I understand, you DO HAVE the mod files in mov and loadscr directories, but you DO NOT have files in the mod directory.

If this is the case, then simply open the transcendII.zip file that you downloaded per my recent link and extract ONLY transcendII.cat and transcendII.dat into the game mod folder.

After that, select transcend mod at game startup and the game should run. Please let me know your results. Thanks.

It is not normal. My guess is some other mod has left traces of itself. To what extent if any, this impacts Transcend, I cannot say. It has been too long since I worked on these things, to help you much beyond this point. Best of luck! :)

I have the 'installer' but it's currently useless (dammit). the site used for hosting the mod is gone so... nothing I can do on my end. if anyone has the zip file for the mod than please put it up or else this will probably never be downloadable again (wow). I've played the mod before and I feel stupid for not keeping the main files lol. or it might be but I doubt it.

EDIT: I have found the dll and the cat file for the mod (yay?). still need to find the rest

what are the scripts and the t files (names). I might have them (as I have found a potential version of the game lol?

edit 2: Apparently the dll files work fine on their own (weird). there are some weird things like your ship's AI not saying the correct name of places (I don't know if that's intentional) and the first cutscene just saying congratulations. it works fine otherwise and is the best we've got for now
Onedrive: (https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/ ... sp=sharing) put the mods folder in the install you want to use then select New Horizons as the mod. loadscreens folder is for the new loadscreens the mod puts into the game. just override the files the base game gives you for that.

also if any of the mod devs want me to remove the download link I can do that if you want me to.

Hello everyone;
Is there any way to get the .zip file for transcend II reloaded mod? all the links posted in the thread seem to be dead, and the zip file is nowhere to be found, well at least I could not find it anywhere. I've found a version of the installer in gamefront, but it cannot download anything as the website that it tries to download from, no longer hosts the file. does anyone have the zip file?

Many thanks.
