Mod switcher for Cliffs

Post by :FI:Sneaky_Russian » Thu Mar 21, 2013 7:25 pm

For anyone checking the Atag mod here-
http://theairtacticalassaultgroup.com/f ... php?t=3777

1)go to your Steam folder

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\IL-2 Sturmovik Cliffs of Dover\parts\core"
Making a switcher........
copy the files =
maddox.dll
maddox.dll.ModInstallBackup_20-3-2013-14_39_17
Strategy.dll
Strategy.dll.ModInstallBackup_20-3-2013-14_39_17

- and save to a new folder called "Backup"


2) in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\IL-2 Sturmovik Cliffs of Dover\parts\core" create "maddox.bak" and "Strategy.bak"


3)Use this .bat file to switch (toggle) versions. copy and paste to notepad and save as clod_switcher.bat
IMPORTANT check the formatting when copying the .bat in notepad so that each xcopy command is on one line with no page breaks or text wrap. run from Cmd console to check all copies performed

Code: Select all

xcopy "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\IL-2 Sturmovik Cliffs of Dover\parts\core\maddox.dll" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\IL-2 Sturmovik Cliffs of Dover\parts\core\maddox.bak"/h/y

xcopy "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\IL-2 Sturmovik Cliffs of Dover\parts\core\maddox.dll.ModInstallBackup_20-3-2013-14_39_17" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\IL-2 Sturmovik Cliffs of Dover

\parts\core\maddox.dll"/h/y

xcopy "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\IL-2 Sturmovik Cliffs of Dover\parts\core\maddox.bak" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\IL-2 Sturmovik Cliffs of Dover\parts\core

\maddox.dll.ModInstallBackup_20-3-2013-14_39_17"/h/y

xcopy "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\IL-2 Sturmovik Cliffs of Dover\parts\core\Strategy.dll" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\IL-2 Sturmovik Cliffs of Dover\parts\core\Strategy.bak"/h/y

xcopy "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\IL-2 Sturmovik Cliffs of Dover\parts\core\Strategy.dll.ModInstallBackup_20-3-2013-14_39_17" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\IL-2 Sturmovik Cliffs of Dover

\parts\core\Strategy.dll"/h/y


xcopy "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\IL-2 Sturmovik Cliffs of Dover\parts\core\Strategy.bak" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\IL-2 Sturmovik Cliffs of Dover\parts\core

\Strategy.dll.ModInstallBackup_20-3-2013-14_39_17"/h/y
Note if your Steam folder is not in the default path "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam" you should use Find/Replace in notepad to redirect the bat file commands

There is a post on TF for a Visual Basic script that switches far more elegantly than my .bat file.

Although I don't know why anyone would want to use the old version of the game. :D
