Up and running now. Thank you to everyone who helped.
I hadn't run a game through FAF yet, so I didn't have the bin files. When I tried to start a game I mistakenly pointed to the FAF files for the supremecommander.exe, not realizing that it wanted the steam directory. Once I pointed to my steam library and started a game through FAF, it DLed the bin files and I can play through FAF now and should be able to start in offline if needed.
Sorry, I'm an idiot.
Appreciate all the help!
Great info, thank you for the welcome and the tips, Uveso.
Thank you for the response. I'll give those a try.
Edit: I tried to launch from the C:\ProgramData\FAForever\bin but I don't have a bin folder anywhere in that location. Odd, I saw someone else pointing to that directory, maybe there is something wrong with my install?
Edit 2: I tried to play a custom game, but it asked me to point to my FAForever directory and when I selected the C:\ProgramData\FAForever folder it said, "The specified location does not contain a valid Supreme Commander.exe and is therefore is no valid Forged Alliance installation"
My guess is one of two things.
1- My steam library is on my G: drive. Perhaps I need to move the game to the C drive and reinstall FAF?
2- I have a corrupted install of FAF and I should reinstall it
Anyone have a different idea? I don't want to spend time on my ideas if they aren't the right ones.
Thanks for any help.
New player, I have only played the first three missions in the campaign. No way am I going to jump into multiplayer yet. I wanted to take a break from the campaign and check out some of the maps made by FAF members. I found a few I liked and DLed them.
I can't figure out how to play them in skirmish mode. They aren't populating in my map list. There aren't any options I can find in mod manager, nor any selection I can find to turn on map mods.
Can the maps from FAF be played in skirmish mode and, if so, how?
