ya know the kick in the head? i just fired up the game like yesterday or the night before, threw some mods in, had not played in like a month.

had one of the mods bug the game so i could not recruit anything, so i had to manually remove all the files folders etc, did a verify game cache then, while doing that i think i saw the western units pack, hey i am playing USA why not, buy it fire up steam again game does an update. but for all i know those units had been out for a month heh, and the patch i figured it was just downloading the 1.2 patch after my verify. did not even noice the game patch was new till i read the forum.

Seems like they fixed it. We can no longer unlock the special forces. Yet..

Anyone know how to do it yet?

it'll likely take a few days to figure out the new formatting scheme they've apparently used to disguise the appropriate file(s)...

Part of the reason being the now paid-for unit package also available, there's likely some method of excluding the necessary files themselves to prevent users from having access to them... the catch of course is that once "the scene" figures out which files and where, it's merely a matter of "sharing those files" to redistribute the power from SEGA back to the modders.

At this moment, not having investigated the matter myself, I'm thinking they've "hidden" the necessary file within the archive, and perhaps along side yet another file for the new purchased unit content, which the game is set to call up in the initializing routine, as such seeing what's being called and from where is almost certainly the map to follow as far as brute force methods go. The far more elegant and practical solution is to comb the files for formatting peculiarities.

Well then, It's just a matter of time.
I bought the Units of the west pack, but I lost my HMS victory.

I want my special forces back!

i unpacked the entire patch.pack and saw nada in there that looked helpful or nothing that did not show and was not readable in in the pack manager itself, unless it is some file format that the pack manager itself cannot see or export.

Hi all. Its a shame to see my original SF unlocker is now obsolete. Because I was not the one to discover how to unlock them in the first place I probably not be able to update the unlocker for the 1.3 Patch. The unlocker file was just a simple form of the original unlock method involving the file extractor.

I may have a look myself to see if theres anything I can find but I'm incredibly doubtful.
