How to install mods through steam


Description

This tutorial is for users wanting to know how to install mods for em4/3/911 first responders that have bought it from the steam store.

First Right click on the game (For this tutorial i will be using 911 first responders) in your steam library and go down and click properties.

Then click local files then browse local files

The mods folder should be the second folder on the top of the list

Then open a second file explorer or click on the downloaded file from your download history of your browser 

if you find it in file explorer drag the file from the location it was downloaded from (most likely to be in downloads folder) and drag it to the mods folder.

once that is done you need to click on the exe file (it will install the game as it is a standalone expansion and ask you if you want to put a desktop shortcut select yes)

(it does not say its a standalone expansion but it pretty much is because it changes the entire game from campaign to freeplay and even the freeplay loading screen)

once its installed the desktop shortcut you will click on that and it should launch it might take awhile after the intro video. (DO NOT CLICK WHEN SCREEN IS BLACK IT IS LOADING IF YOU CLICK THE BLACK SCREEN IT WILL STOP RESPONDING AND CRASH!)

once the game is launched and you at the menu go into the campaign and it should have a new campaign with all missions unlocked however you can restart a new campaign but it may crash the game. 

and your ready to be the one man or women dispatcher of LA!

Whenever I download the mod, everything looks correct except it is not an .exe file. In addition, I get a message saying that it is not a valid instillation of the file. Finally, when I attempt to put the mod in the mod installer, it says that it is not a valid modification package. Any tips for what I am doing wrong?

I have the same issue. Not sure what the problem is. Hoppah can you help us? I have this installed on a older machine. I had the game through GameFly, but they apparently don't do the online stuff for computer games like steam.

Guest I think I got it

I had that issue also. I think if you open and allow la mod to change your computer  it installed it and placed a desktop  icon on my screen.  I am waiting  my son to try and see if it changed the EM4 game. If it worked I will try and post how I did it.

Guest I can try and tell

I see it has made it into my modifications on the EM4 game. 

Okay  I'm not a game or good with computers I will try and describe how I went from not a valid installation to getting it on the game.

I double left clicked the mods.2.1v and had the computer access the zip file. It then gave me pop up boxes that allowed me to grant access to the EM4 mod installer to open and place it in the game.  It went to the black screens and went through the intro. At main menu I left clicked to check modifications and found  it had added los_angeles_mod_v2_1_by_hoppah to the game.

 

Hope that helps.
