How to install previous versions of LW 2

Post by John_AZ » Tue Sep 05, 2017 6:28 pm

I'm new to Long War 2 and would like to play previous version of LW2, like v1.2.

Do you know any tutorials on how to install previous versions.

I downloaded 1.2 from XCOM Nexus and tryied to install it in Steam > steamapps > common > XCOM 2 > XComGame > Mods.

It seems to work, but the mission load screen is the vanilla version and the options menu doesn't show Campaign or Long War 2 settings.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

There are a couple of Long War-related options menu entries that don't appear until after you've loaded into the game. This may have been fixed in 1.5, but it was always this way prior.

Thanks for the reply Steve-O. I have started a new Long War 2 campaign and loaded into the first mission. That's when I noticed that the mission load screen was the vanilla version and that hitting Esc to bring up the options menu did not show any Long War 2 Settings.

Any one else have any ideas about installing previous versions of Long War 2?

I solved it.
I uninstalled all of my Workshop mods. Added LW 2, then uninstalled it. I deleted all the empty folders in:
Steam > steamapps > SteamApps > workshp > content > 268500

I then copied the LW 1.2 folder LW_Overhaul into:
Steam > steamapps > common > XCOM 2 > XComGame > Mods

I started XCom 2 with no other mods.

There must have been some mod conflict or workshop residue.
1.2 now works like it should.
