HOI4 general: "Who even plays unmoded?" edition Anonymous Gamer 04/02/2020 (Thu) 13:16:37 No. 258
Since /v/ is now open, I guess it is time to relocate here from /hobby/.
>>3089 aah, as long as I have some way to make the install run I don't want to go poking it, lest it crumble to dust by my tech-ludditeness.
>>3090 I (>>3089) meant to reply to >>3087 Didn't realize someone else had replied while I was looking for solutions lol
Make sure you play with this soundtrack mod for TNO btw lads https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2173536659&searchtext= HOI OST kills the mood
>>3092 I muted ingame sound and had the ace combat osts going on in the background
>>3088 I used that exact version, so that is not a problem. >basegame launcher doesn't work, so I set the mods I want in the launcher, go into where I installed the game, and just launch the executable Exactly like my experience, except it crashes half way through the loading bar. >>3089 I did, and it didn't seem to help. All I would leave in there were the mod folder and some dlc enabler that appears when clicking the mod "on" in the dowser menu. >>3092 >>3093 Personally was planning on running "The Battle is Going Again" and "Stand up Great Country" in the background for my first playthroughs.
>>3095 >Exactly like my experience, except it crashes half way through the loading bar. hm, does it do this if you don't use any mods?
>>3097 Nope, works perfectly without any. Hence I was interested in what would happen if I merged the TNO and baseline files. Since it didn't work, I am asooming that the problem is not with the mod, but some data inconsistency or something between the two.
>>3095 Have you tried removing all the mods, loading into the vanilla menu, quitting, then adding the mods again? Sometimes the game likes being loaded up in vanilla once after an update before running mods.
>>3099 No. So you'd recommend to delete the mod folder, or just reinstall, then launch Vanilla, and then add the mods?
>>3098 Then it sounds either like an issue of the mods themselves being downloaded or an issue with the game parsing mods. I'd try deleting the mods, running it vanilla, quitting, reinstalling the mods from scratch, and seeing if it will run the mods then. It can be an issue with steam workshop not downloading properly or an issue of the outdated engine being finicky.
>>3101 Ok, I'll try that right now, see how it goes. Btw, where did you get the mod? I downloaded using https://steamworkshopdownloader.io/ since the direct download on the subreddit didn't seem to work in the morning.
>>3102 I bought the base game on sale for ultra cheap and I use the steam workshop to download mods, since the CODEX is functionally the same as the steam version it reads the mods downloaded by the workshop just fine without needing me to do anything else.
>>3102 >>3103 oh, and if I remember right the game didn't work earlier today because of some technical issue, redownloading the mod's most recent version is prolly a good idea.
>>3100 Well for me removing the mods is just unticking them in the launcher. You should get your cracked vanilla version of 1.9.3 and attempt to install the mod manually on it, I don't know how you've done it so this is how I would do it: Try and source a proper TNO installation, here's one I found that sources it from workshop: http://steamworkshop.download/download/view/2173766180 Follow this to install: https://hoi4.paradoxwikis.com/Mods#Installation
>>3102 and one last thing, if you still have the version of the game where you overwrote the base game's files with TNO, just delete that install and get a fresh one lmao, cause that definitely would have destroyed the install
>>3106 Yeah this if you've actually full on copied over the files instead of putting them in the mod folder you've goofed. On the bright side if you've done this our suggestions will actually help, if you've installed the mod files in the correct location I have no idea how to help you.
Ok, so, I tried reinstalling and all, but it still doesn't work. Here is the entire process I did: >Uninstall HoI4, purge anything pdx related on PC. >Restart >Delete TNO files and get new ones. >Install using CODEX iso file. >Start the game, get one save done as well. >Install the pdx launcher. >Using mod tools, create a TNO folder in the mod folder of pdx files. >Copy everything but the .mod file (the launcher created one inside and outside of the TNO folder already) to the mod folder from the zip of TNO files. >Enable mod >Manually start HoI4 as launcher doesn't work >Starts loading, all the tips, pictures and UI elements are TNO >Crashes on 4/10 of the progress bar with the map loading error All of this is the same as before.
>>3109 I honestly don't know then, its probably something on paradick's end, some kind of optimization thing.
>>3110 I was thinking, could it be some problem on my end? It has been like 2+ years since I reinstalled windows, and perhaps some sort remnants of older HoI4 dlc's are screwing things up?
>>3109 Oh btw they reuploaded the mod an hour after the initial upload because steam corrupted the files due to server maintenance. Meaning the original upload will crash no matter what, and if you're working with the files that got uploaded at 7PMEST yesterday, you're gonna have to redownload for the fixed version.
>>3112 I have done that. Also this happened to other mods, I just didn't give much thought about it before.
>>3113 At this point it might be quicker for you to either A) Run it in a virtual OS if your PC is good B) Partition and play it on that

sad moment
>>3059 >India, Vietnam and even fucking Cuba haven’t had any content Fucking bullshit. I want to see the Cuban revolutionary army helping the ANC and Idi Amin wrecking Nazis allying to the new 4th Internationale!
>>3164 Don't play any orange nations either, only the green ones have reliable amounts of content. Most of the 19602-1972 content (writing, art, design docs) is done apparently, they just have to implement it into the game and they're doing that before they add any later content.
>>3163 How is Adolf Hitler still even alive in the 60s? That nigga would've been fucked by then.
>>3171 He'd be in his early 70's, not that unbelievable.
>>3163 Frustrated painter didn't had Alzheimer, he had Parkinson, I can't believe they missed that. (Maybe in that mod he has senile dementia, i haven't touch HOI4 in a long time)
>>3182 Also he died in 1945, not 1962. What a bunch of amateurs.
>>3182 >>3171 Think they talked once about how they knew Hitler wouldn't live that long, but needed it for the story. Their explanation was that Goering's personal doctor had a grudge against Hitler's doctor and crashed into him with a car, killing him. Then he himself was arrested. Thus Hitler and Goering both became healthier as both of their shitty doctors were gone.
>>3190 What was wrong with Goering's doctor?
>>3190 Only because of a leg injury, the doctor gave Goering so much painkillers and morphine that the fad bastard got addicted.
>>3190 Only because of a leg injury, the doctor gave Goering so much painkillers and morphine that the fad bastard got addicted.
>>3198 >>3199 Cracks me up how the TNO community refer to him as "Voring Göring"
>>3171 in '62 he would be 73 not to old
>>3163 >nazi Germany >state atheist wtf
>>3216 I think he's talking about how his doctor had him speedballing meth and diazepam and shit, which is why the doctors discussion came up.
>>3218 tbf it is alt history some maybe in that time line Hitler never became a methhead, also by 62 he has really serious dementia, which is rare for people in their early seventies.
Is it true that in TNO you can get Gus Hall into power?
>>3381 I guess? The L-NPP leader was never revealed, so perhaps its him. However, since my mod don't work, I can't say for sure.
>>3217 It is a strange mod, on the one hand the gameplay is reduced to a visual novel, but because the althis scenario and plot is retarded, you also have to shut down your brain off.
>>3381 Yes, in the 1972 election. He will try and probably fail to reform the USA into socialism
>>3403 You definitely can get Gus Hall to be president but you have to royally fuck up both the African and Indonesian wars while ruining the US economy to do so. And even if he wins, he would have to declare a civil war to get anything done since congress will never pass anything with a “radical” in power.
>>3537 I really don't get why the mod team decided that US will never have an unconstitutional takeover. Most obviously, something akin to business plot is quite possible to happen, arguably even now IRL, and especially so if TNO NPP-Y/L wins. Aside from that, both of these NPP factions should in theory be able to start a civil war, because the country is just so fucked, so the decisions to say "no civil war never ever can't happen no no" seems a bit silly.
>>3539 Tbh I think a Civil War in America is gonna be a possibility in the 70s or 80s. The mod takes place iver the time span to basically only get two presidential terms in.
>>3539 Another annoying part is that the dev team still consistently pain Kaganovich’s ML fanboyism of Stalin under a bad light. It’s like they willfully ignore that Stalin was instrumental in mobilizing the USSR into beating the Nazis in OTL. Also they somehow forgot about Tukhachevsky’s pagan obsession which was one of the big reason he got purged in real life.
>>3570 I never got the impression that anyone in the post-soviet hellscape was ever put in a good light - they were either ruthlessly pragmatic from their situation or idealistic and unlikely to succeed (and the game mechanics try to make it so you don't speaking as someone who played Sablin). Especially mind because this is an era where Stalin got sidelined out of power and assassinated, so his fanboyism for like a low-level bureaucrat can easily be seen as questionable.
>>3583 He probably wrote just as much about the economics of the USSR as in our world. I can see that he would have fans. Still wondering whatever happened to Trotsky though.
>>3587 I think it was said he was assassinated with a sledgehammer by the Bukharinites

>>3583 >I never got the impression that anyone in the post-soviet hellscape was ever put in a good light ackshually Yeltsin is kinda gigabased in this timeline. Or at least he does all the same stuff as real, but given the circumstances it works out well instead
