Hello.

I'm really tired of downloading great looking mods, and then realising that either
a) I have no clue how to install them, because they don't come with instructions or an installer
b) There is a readme file with instructions, but it happens to be in German (glares at Elrond99).

Could anybody explain what do do with the .zip file once I've downloaded it? I have WinRar, if that helps.
I know I sound stupid, but hey, I'm only 15 and I'm new to this whole thing anyway. So please, help. I love you all.

Use WinRar, and unzip the .zip file..
then;
a) Install it by using the installer
b) Read the ReadMe in english (it's in the installer, so you read it when your installing, or actually right before.. if that made sense :evgr:)

Oh, WinRar. Got it. Thanks.
Uh... What do you mean by "unzip" something? I know how to deal with ordinary .rar files, but...

Same as unrar, meaning unpack/extract the archive(zip/rar/whatevr). :p :p

Yup. That was cool, I really enjoyed it. It makes me look up with interest in regard to The Fourth Age mod.

I did a mistake - I installed it while my game was in progress, and now I keep getting debug - even if I want to start it without the mod. Anyone knows what to do here? :/

Are you talking about Scouring of the Shire, or The 4th Age?

Anyways, I'm sure a reinstall will fix the problem, if the game doesn't even work without the mod...
