I think you need to install them in the CustomMaps folder and then start a new game and select custom maps, then it should work

A couple of things I noticed:

1. Maps are great (wish you would have used different planets though, maybe a space battle on Mandalore eh?)!

2. When you install them you have to select the custommaps folder under data in the appopriate game directory.  Furthermore, once installed, a redundant "data" folder is placed in the custommaps folder so you have to move the maps from there back to the custommaps folder for FoC to find them.

3. The launcher .exe thing you guys included with that won't validate my copy of FoC so I deleted it.

4. The only thing missing from the maps is the preview when you are loading a multiplayer game.  It shows the starting locations but it would be nice to have a preview to see what the maps layout will actually look like.  That's something that could probably be fixed pretty easily I would imagine.

Anyway, I only played the space maps, but they were fun :)

you have to intall it in: ...LucasArts\Star Wars Empire at War Forces of Corruption
and the maps are in the folder: ...\LucasArts\Star Wars Empire at War Forces of Corruption\Data\Art\Maps

or the EaW folder.

and they are list up in the Coustmmap list ingame.


and if you say how I can put a minimap in preview window i will do it ;)

Well, 3 people I know have tried just installing it in the correct custommaps folder and it always installs with the maps in a subdirectory called "data".  The reason why is because on original EaW that's how they are saved (so the maps for EaW work as installed).  The directory structure is different on FoC.

And yes, the mini preview thing would be a nice addition.

Right, I told it to install it in the FoC folder under data >> custom maps.  That's the right place isn't it?  Then it installs a separate (redundant) data folder.  Am I missing something?

I did the same thing at first, but I went back. For FOC, the install is supposed to be just in the main directory, not in any of the subdirectories. The install will place the maps into the right place from there.

Yeah you did.  When I read it the first time I thought you were saying that where all the custom maps would be, which I knew wasn't right.  What the installer is doing is putting them in their own folder, which I didn't get until now.  Anywho, glad it works right :)

I especially liked the 6 player space map, for 2v2v2 games it will rock :)

Any way you can re-release the map pack where it has the map previews that I asked about before?
