Elite Mod Crashes on launch

Postby Dino_spumoni » Sun 05 Aug, 2018 9:32 pm

Hello, topic is very straight forward, never launched Elite mod Successfully on this computer.

Normal DOW 2 will launch and run without issue, attempting to run Elite mod through it's own launcher or through steam with the "-modname Elite" launcher option causes an instant crash. Steam never shows the game launching it goes straight to the relic crash reporter.

Steam file check shows no invalid files and the error occurs with both 2.8 and 2.8.1.

Any ideas out there?

Have you tried to look through the technical issues forum first?
Your issue is probably already explained in there.

Is your Elite on the same drive as DoW2 is?

Mowt common reason for this is that your elite mod is not installed in the correct folder

I also had this issue.
I didn't know that you need to select the location of the game when installing the mod. And I can't remember reading this somewhere.
The install wizard just asks for a location like it doesn't matter.

Maybe change this text? Or make a note somewhere?

Hi,
I have the same need. I use trainer Elite Novo Force 8 and like to estimate the power via Powerpod. Is there already a fix for it? Thanks, Adalberto

If the problem is just people installing it in the wrong spot, then the solution is to just point it in the right directory. The installer just goes towards the default directory. This is only an issue if you have an unusual Steam/DowII installation.

That being said, just looking through this thread I can't say for sure what the exact problem is.
