I played T2 for years and found this recently. I loved the old WAR mod and I've located and downloaded it (War2003). Please forgive my ignorance but will someone remind me the command line sequence for launching tribes with the war mod?
If you've extracted the "War2003" mod folder into your GameData directory, you'd launch it using: Tribes2.exe -online -mod War2003 or Tribes2.exe -dedicated -mod War2003
Tribes2.exe -online -mod War2003
Tribes2.exe -dedicated -mod War2003
If you've run base or classic previously however, you'll also want to delete any .dso files in your base folder -- otherwise you'll likely have issues loading the mod, since the game will load the compiled cache if it appears to be more recent than the last file change timestamp.
