Default party mod worked

I dld it with aol and not safari, and was able to get the zip file that way. It worked, which is weird since when I rezipped it, it didn't.

Billiam,
When you re-zipped the file you probably didn't have the folder structure in the zip file that you needed. It's not the simplest thing to describe, but the zip file has to retain the Database folder within the zip file.

I don't have a clue what the Mac's compression software looks like so I can't describe it visually; I can only describe it logically which is often difficult to grok without visual aids.

GT,
Always, always, always use modular zip files for long-term modding. It's just simpler that way. Once you figure out how to do it at least. See my list of best practices. But you asked for pros and cons. It's a complicated enough description that I'm going to post it in a new thread so I can find it easier when someone asks the question again in a week. I've posted it here.

A grand list of "HOW TO MOD" needs to be tagged at the top of the page with instructions on everything and what they do :P

Perhaps with a hint of How to use a mac intel added.

Still, will do ^_^, domo arigato.

Good idea. Glad you could volunteer. I'll expect ship-worthy product in three days.
