can't get blue shift unlock to work
« on: January 16, 2011, 12:55:02 AM »

I just bought blue shift from steam and I wanted to try this Blue shift unlocked mod, but after "installing" it, I launch the mod and click "new game".......and nothing happens.

this is what I did:
I put the "bshift_unlocked" folder into my steam half-life folder like it said in the readme.  then I started the .bat file, choose a Steam install and it just skipped all the mdl and bsp files

.BSPs are map files. That would explain that.

Copy the .BSPs.

wich maps ?  I don't have any bsps to copy...

Also, the setup.bat file seems to be looking for the maps in the "setup_files\temp\maps" folder, wich I obviously don't have ???

I've had this problem before. When you install the Blue Shift game on steam, play it once and load a map - this makes folders/stuff. After that, try installing BS:U.

I had already played a few maps of blue shift before trying to install g BS:U.  I just played again.  still getting the same results when trying to install BS:U - it can't extract the mdl files and can't open the bsp maps...

have you tried turning off steam and then running the bat file? I remember there was a problem with accessing GCF files while steam was still running
