problem installing the Long War 2 mod

Post by Darth Ben »

(This post is a copy of a former one posted in the Bugs Report part of the Forum).

I just try to install the mod with the help of the instructions provided in the nexus mods website but while i put correctly files into the Mods directory. When i launch XCOM2, no sign of the Long war 2 mod. It works like no mod was installed.

By reading the forum, former XCOM 2 files seem to create troubles in launching the mod so I try to suppress the former save files in the directory:

C:\Users\User\OneDrive\Documents\My Games\XCOM2\XComGame\SaveData

but Steam seems to recreate them as soon as it launches the game...

EDIT: A precision: the expansion War of the Chosen is also installed.

EDIT 2: i erase the save files and launch the game offline but it also fails due to the fact the game absolutely needs to be online to launch...

Any idea ?

SOLUTION: In addition of the instructions on, i need to open "DefaultModOptions.ini" in the directory
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\XCOM 2\XComGame\Config"
to add the line:

Now that is working fine.
