Is there a Taliban mod available?

Recommended Posts

Well, there's the entire CM:Afghanistan title. Its got pre-Taliban mujahideen fighters. I suppose in theory one could swap out CMSF1 'fighter' models with 'Afghan' models. I don't think anyone's ever tried, though. CMSF2 is even more problematic because the figure poses and movements are based around a different, updated skeleton structure.

Thanks MikeyD.  I will take a look. Edit: I've tried moving the Mujahideen mod from CM Afghanistan to CMSF, but it doesn't work unfortunately.

IIRC the CMA developer "Snowball" did some things that were not compatible with the other CM2 titles created by BF.  Some of the skins do not work in both games, and wouldn't be surprised if other mods did not either.   However, I have used many CMSF mods in CMA successfully.  Cannot recall if I successfully used any mods from CMA in CMSF...

Re the Mujahideen mod have you tried renaming it as the naming conventions may be different in the two games(?).

I haven't and I must confess I don't know where to begin either. But I will look into it, Erwin. Thanks for the suggestion. If you have a more detailed one, please don't hesitate. 😀

Hold on, guys. I just found out that in the Heart of Darkness campaign there's a Taliban mod included! I'll be back...:ph34r:

Edit: yes, it works beautifully. Great mod. Thank you, dragonwynn!

Oh good...  :)  

BTW:  I looked at my CMA Z folder and I see a "mujatribal_ALL_ragtag_camo" mod.

And yes, I see the xnt Heart of Darkness Taliban mod in my CMSF Z folder as well.

It only works in SF. There is no way that I know of that it can be manipulated to work in SF2. The mds files have completely different naming conventions in the code for SF2.

There is a scenario called ":Sangin Valley Mods" it has Taliban and other mod with it. Is that what most players are talking about? If you want it I can post it here.

I haven't checked it yet with CMSF2. Will tonight.

It will not work (as posted above). I wrote a semi detailed explanation in the Civil War thread. SF1 and CM:A are the last bastions of model swapping.
