Hi there,

I have made a solo loading screen for my map and it works perfectly. Now the problem is, if I make a installer and send it to a friend, they don't have the loading screen when they play solo. 

I thinks it's because the loading screen file is located in ROOT/main/videos with all the other .bik files which means it's not included in the mod.

My question is then, is it possible to add the .bik file to the mod so other people who play the map in solo will have the loading screen instead of the standard activision one? 

Thank you for your time.

Hi there,

I have made a solo loading screen for my map and it works perfectly. Now the problem is, if I make a installer and send it to a friend, they don't have the loading screen when they play solo. 

I thinks it's because the loading screen file is located in ROOT/main/videos with all the other .bik files which means it's not included in the mod.

My question is then, is it possible to add the .bik file to the mod so other people who play the map in solo will have the loading screen instead of the standard activision one? 

Thank you for your time.

I don't know if you readed the ugx installer optional options but if you add the bik video at the root of your mod it would be automaticly installed into your friends main video folder.

I was finaly able to try this (sorry that too this long) but it sadly did not work, my friend still only sees the activision loading screen.

So what I did was place the mapname_load.bik into the root/mods/mapname folder and created a new installer with UGX Installer 1.1 and nothing really happen on my friends end. Is there something they need to do manually? or am I just setting this up wrong?

 I have now also tried to include the .bik file in "appdata/local/activision/codwaw/mods/mapname" and that also didn't work. Would there be any other way?

What I did to make it work was adding it in the compiled folder and then load it onto the installer.
