How to run AVPC on current Steam version (as of 12/23/13)
« on: December 23, 2013, 11:27:30 AM »
I spent hours trying to get this working, and it turns out it was fairly simple in the end.

Firstly, you want to install AVPC under the ShareThePain directory, NOT the main directory. That no longer works. So when installing, install to:

SteamApps\common\POSTAL2Complete\ShareThePain\AVPC_SM


OPTIONAL:
Next, to get it to show up on the new Launcher, go to your main directory:

SteamApps\common\POSTAL2Complete\

Find the file named Launcher.ini and add this to the bottom of it:

Code: [Select]
[InstalledModules.AVeryPostalChristmas]
Order=4
Name=A Very Postal Christmas
SystemDir=../ShareThePain/AVPC_SM/System/
Exe=PostalChristmas.exe
SettingsINI=PostalChristmas.ini
UserINI=User.ini
MultiAnnouncerInfo=MultiAnnouncerInfo.int


That's it. One other thing to do, if you're getting crashes, is turn off Allow Projectors in the Performance options. For some reason AVPC always crashes after 30 seconds or so ingame when that's checked. For me anyway.

This could work for other mods. Haven't tried any.

Yeah, it'll work with any total conversion mods such as Eternal Damnation, as the Share the Pain game uses the same base code and files as the pre update version of P2.

Whenever I try to launch AVPC, It says 'failed to load settings' then won't let me launch it. What do I do?

Edit: Oh, I see, the download was just an install .exe. Never mind.

My first post on these forums, and it get's stickied. Fancy. Glad it was helpful.

Also, what does "Based" mean in that context, HardenedMetapod?

There was once a rap song where the artist said "Thank you based god."
Now people use it as a joke.
