Technical help

Postby sid66 » December 4th, 2015, 10:58 am

Hi!
I want to modify a map of a module.
So I open it with winrar modify it but then how I revert it back as a vassal module?
Is there a solution?

Normal procedure is to change the .vmod extension to .zip, extract the files, modify what you need, combine everything back into a .zip file and change the .zip extension back into .vmod.

Keep in mind that the modified map must have the same dimensions as the original.

Use something like 7zip that will happily allow you access to module contents without having to rename file extensions.

Learn something everyday. I've used WinRar for so many years (and WinZip prior to that) that I did not known 7zip will access mod files. Thanx for the tip.
