    Well Thagarr pointed out this and it worked for some people and I always do forget about them myself...

    So try this if your game isnt running and then if it doesnt work post on the forum ;)

    Thanks Captain Maggee! Codecs are easy to overlook, most have absolutely nothing to do with games, but badly written ones can screw with windows so much that even simple video and audio play back either function erratically or not at all.

    One of the biggest offenders I have run across is ffdshow. The LAME Mp3 codec can also cause some problems. Hopefully this thread will help track down a few more!

    Other codecs that have been found to cause problems :

    Nero DVD Decoder and Nero Video Decoder : thanks Sotha!

    Hi, guys. I am from Russia. :drunk Need your help. I have a game version 1.2.3. I saw your mod - it is great! But I have a problem - I have no folder PROGRAM. And that's why mod(3.1.5) does not work! :modding Please help me.
    Sincerely, Haron.

    Note to the CoAS modding team: You should include the following files in the download,
    hopefully that would allow the modpack to work for Russian game versions also:
    - ENGINE.exe
    - Full MODULES folder
    - Full PROGRAM folder

    I uploaded those files for you here now: http://www.pyratesahoy.com/coas/coas_files.exe
    Extract to your main game folder and you should get a working PROGRAM folder.
    After that, installing the modpack should hopefully work.

    Unfortunately, after launching start.exe crash error: "This application has failed to start because dvm.dll was not found." :modding
    In any case, thank you that responded.
