CFDA - Canadian Forces Direct Action

hi to all,
I have this Mod for SWAT from a few months but I can't make a career in SP.
I don't see "career" in the menu, only "instant mission".

I have SWAT 4 Gold Edition original.

Suggestion?

You're too old to play Mods.

Edit: (Real Suggestion): Did you see what you can do in instant action? Maybe there are maps etc?

Are you using an .exe from the mod like the SAS mod does? Is there one of those fancy .bat files, and did you try opening with that?

Further Edit: Perhaps it is a MP only mod. I came across this in ArmA 2 the other day with the DayZ mod. It actually disables Singleplayer...just like your issue. There is a cheat to use it in SP, but it doesn't work for me. Perhaps this is your issue.

There really are a number of things that it could be Blum 3

I quote! ROTFL and I add that I'm too old to write in English... :?

I try:

- instant mission = always the same map

- in map folder there are 21 maps SP-***.s4m + same 21 in MP-***.s4m

- there are only 3 *.exe file (CFDA.exe, CFDA Dedicated.exe and Unistall.exe), no *.bat files in the mod folders.

-I don't know if it's a multiplayer only mod, I asked here because I want to know if anyone else have this mod with or without this problem on "career" mode.

help your favorite old noob IMAGE(http://www.freesmileys.org/smileys/smiley-fc/old.gif)

bats

You are too old to run bat files :o

Joking Lol

Try this:

Open text editor, enter this code, and replace MODFOLDER with the folder name of the mod, then save it as (File>Save As) slm2ld2rnm.bat (don't mistype or you get an error) and place this file into the mod directory, then run it.

If you don't make it work, post folder name and I will make one or several files for you.

@echo off

echo X-Ray spotteed!! Go Go Go!

cd .\System\

..\..\MODFOLDER\System\Swat4x.exe -nointro

echo Cleaaaa!

Don't experiment with custom commands, don't blow up your system!

The CDFA folder is:
C:\Program\Sierra\SWAT 4\AustereVillageTSS

The exe files are not in:
C:\Program\Sierra\SWAT 4\AustereVillageTSS\System
but in:
C:\Program\Sierra\SWAT 4\AustereVillageTSS

Lol slim, I knew you won't understand. Can't blame you, most people don't get it actually.

Do Save As procedure for this:

@echo off

echo X-Ray spotted!! Go Go Go!

cd .\System\

..\..\AustereVillageTSS\System\Swat4x.exe -nointro

echo Cleaaaa!

Copy the .bat file you made from above ext to the mod folder (doesn't need to be in system) Then run and see if it works, if it doesn't, I will send you a script.

Thanks MAVEN,
but it doesn't work.

I copied the text from your "Quote",
I opened "notepad",
I have pasted the text,
I saved the file in the folder "AustereVillageTSS" (the Mod folder),
I changed the file extension from .txt to .bat,
I launched the file.

Nothing happened.

I think it's the mod that is making trouble.

Is that TSS or S4 vanilla mod?

Anyway.

Do this:

1. Open text editor.
2. Copy ALL of the text from the quote bellow (NO MISTAKES ALLOWED)

Option Explicit
Dim objShell, objDesktop, objLink
Dim strAppPath, strWorkDir
Dim regKey, regValue, regResult

msgbox "If you press this button something awesome will happen. Go ahead, don't be shy!", 0, "The Awesome Maker"

Const HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE = &H80000002

Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

regKey = "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Sierra\SWAT 4 - The Stetchkov Syndicate\"
regValue = "InstallPath"

regResult = objShell.RegRead(regKey & regValue)

strWorkDir = regResult + "AustereVillageTSS\System"
strAppPath = regResult + "\ContentExpansion\System\Swat4X.exe"

Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
objDesktop = objShell.SpecialFolders("Desktop")
Set objLink = objShell.CreateShortcut(objDesktop & "\AustereVillageTSS.lnk")

objLink.Description = "AustereVillageTSS Launcher"
objLink.TargetPath = strAppPath
objLink.WindowStyle = 3
objLink.WorkingDirectory = strWorkDir
objLink.Save

strWorkDir = regResult + "AustereVillageTSS\System"
strAppPath = regResult + "\ContentExpansion\System\Swat4xDedicatedServer.exe"

Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
objDesktop = objShell.SpecialFolders("Desktop")
Set objLink = objShell.CreateShortcut(objDesktop & "\AustereVillageTSS Dedicated Server.lnk")

objLink.Description = "AustereVillageTSS Dedicated Server Launcher"
objLink.TargetPath = strAppPath
objLink.WindowStyle = 3
objLink.WorkingDirectory = strWorkDir
objLink.Save

msgbox "OMG Check your desktop :o", 0, "MAVEN says Hi :)"

WScript.Quit

3. In text editor go File>Save As> Select from drop down menu All files>In file name write run1.vbs (add this extension IN the name box) >Press Save button.

4. Repeat process with new text editor window.

5. Use this text from quote bellow instead

Option Explicit
Dim objShell, objDesktop, objLink
Dim strAppPath, strWorkDir
Dim regKey, regValue, regResult

msgbox "If you press this button something awesome will happen. Go ahead, don't be shy!", 0, "The Awesome Maker"

Const HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE = &H80000002

Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

regKey = "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Sierra\SWAT 4 - The Stetchkov Syndicate\"
regValue = "InstallPath"

regResult = objShell.RegRead(regKey & regValue)

strWorkDir = regResult + "AustereVillageTSS\System"
strAppPath = regResult + "\Content\System\Swat4.exe"

Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
objDesktop = objShell.SpecialFolders("Desktop")
Set objLink = objShell.CreateShortcut(objDesktop & "\AustereVillageTSS 2.lnk")

objLink.Description = "AustereVillageTSS Launcher 2"
objLink.TargetPath = strAppPath
objLink.WindowStyle = 3
objLink.WorkingDirectory = strWorkDir
objLink.Save

strWorkDir = regResult + "AustereVillageTSS\System"
strAppPath = regResult + "\Content\System\Swat4DedicatedServer.exe"

Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
objDesktop = objShell.SpecialFolders("Desktop")
Set objLink = objShell.CreateShortcut(objDesktop & "\AustereVillageTSS Dedicated Server 2.lnk")

objLink.Description = "AustereVillageTSS Dedicated Server Launcher 2"
objLink.TargetPath = strAppPath
objLink.WindowStyle = 3
objLink.WorkingDirectory = strWorkDir
objLink.Save

msgbox "OMG Check your desktop :o", 0, "MAVEN says Hi :)"

WScript.Quit

7. Same saving procedure, except that you will save this one as run2.vbs

8. Find saved files, double click run1.vbs (make sure antivirus and firewall don't go crazy, allow it to run).

9. Run run2.vbs file.

10. Check your desktop.

11. Run new shortcuts (should have 4 new on desktop after both files) and see if it works. If one doesn't work then other should. If none work, then the mod simply sucks.

If you don't have Swat 4 installed properly, it wont work.

Also, if you can't make it to run, tell me and I will send you those files.

Thanks again MAVEN.

I have Swat 4 installed properly, original software and i play with original CD in CD rom (one for Vanilla another for TSS).

I did what you told me and on my Desktop appeared 4 shortcuts:
2 with icon TSS (AustereVillageTSS and AustereVillageTSS Dedicated Server)
2 with icon SWAT 4 vanilla (AustereVillageTSS2 and AustereVillageTSS2 Dedicated Server).

I tried to run the first 2 shortcut with TSS CD and the seconds with SWAT 4 Vanilla CD.

Results:

1 - (AustereVillageTSS) the shortcut work and launch the game but the menu that appears is the same if i lauch the game with my default .exe file. This: CFDA menu
without career mode.

2 - (AustereVillageTSS Dedicated Server) don't work.

3 - (AustereVillageTSS2) error message:

But, it is possible that I am the only one with this mod here? 8O

Slim, from the bug report and from what you reported - The Canadian mod doesn't support career mode...

It seems it's designed to run just in MP, which is sadly something I can't help you with.

If you have other problems please tell maybe I can help with other stuff though.

It also seems that the mod wasn't designed for dedicated servers Beee
