HI everyone
I'm a game freak and i'm new to these MOD things..but so far they have been good.. I'm sort of up with the play with computers but not that much and i need a hand. You see i've downloaded a MOD for Homeworld2
so after it was finished i opened it and had a look at the read me file..and heres how it said to install it:
Installation
Add -overrideBigFile to the command-line of your HW2 shortcut, and place the data folder into HW2's root folder (ie C:\Program Files\Sierra\Homeworld2\).... Ok i worked out where and what the root file is and thats fine but my beef is the part that says "command-line".
Now i made a shortcut and right clicked on it and brought up the properties and theres no "command-line" so i'm thinking that the "Target" line or the "Start In" line must be the command line??... A little help would be great if any one knows.. i'd be very thankful for any help given. Thanks for your time. (I'm using XP home edition by the way)

Yes it would most likely be the Target line that need the -overrideBigFile

eg (and I don't know the executable name so I assume it is called HW2.exe)

The target would be

C:\Program Files\Sierra\Homeworld2\HW2.exe -overrideBigFile
