yeah, i can't get the deom to NOT give me a parsing error on start up. THe following is what i did to install it.

I made a gal of chaos folder, extracted all of the files to that. THen put the data folder into a fully patched copy of FOC. cpomuter asked if i wanted to replace the data files I said yes to all. THen i just put all your other text doc files in the foc copy's folder and ran the foc start shortcut...... all i get is a parsing error. Your splash screen opens, but nothing else works.

I've also gone into properties and under the compatibility tab. checked tha following boxes... run in compatibility for win XP and also the box for Run as administrator.

What did i mess up? I'm still kinda new to playing games and mods on win 7.

hmm, ive heard that the normal game itself is not Win7 compatible, but ive also heard that theres a fan patch lying around somewhere... 

Also, which version of the mod are you using?
