The file name of your zip file is probably incorrect. You can't use dashes. Only underscore and typical letters and numbers are allowed.

Rename your zip file or folder and let me know if it still has the error.
I also have the same problem but i have changed the file name and names inside the file and still i get the same error code. Any ideas whats not right?

You have no spaces correct? You can't use spaces either.

Had the same spacing problem with a mod, i made a change in the moddesc file, you have to because otherwise it wouldnt work.

Below the section where you put the 3 lines with the <> tags in between is a line that links to the other XML file in the folder.


Check if they still are tesame, with me (because i made a change) they were 1 character different, changed it back and it worked.

i have a favorite mod fom 2011 that when i convert it, it will lock up my 2013 fs and no longer work. is there anyone that can help do a more in depth conversion. something about converting images and other things. i have no idea how to do it. the mod is a case ih 2388 combine and header pack. it contains 3 combines and three headers. its a very complicated file, there are instructions on how to run the combine in the info book included, i will also need instructions on how to post the file to be shared to allow it to be edited. i am thankfull for any help as i know it will not be a simple task.

Never used it myself, but I've heard that it uses many mod scripts. So you need to be a very good scripter to convert that combine. Or you have to do it without all the scripts and just use the basic combine scripts.

What do you have to do with the scripts inorder for everything to work correctly? I am willing to try myself but I am unsure how to begin.

Converting them. FS13 uses new/other variables and functions. The script documentation http://ls-mods.de/scriptDocumentation.php is a good place to check the variables/functions, but probably not sufficient to convert all scripts.
If you don't know any scripting or programming language, better let it go. In that case you wouldn't be able to understand all that stuff anyway. And that combine would be a very bad idea to learn scripting, because it's way to complex for beginners.

Yea I wouldn't have a clue what I was doing, but that is a great very realistic combine. I actually work at a case ih dealer and that mod is spot on. The developers did a great job.

Has anyone tried converting the JD9630 v2 from 2011? I tried using the converting guidelines above and it loads into the map but then when you enter it, your stuck in it and it wont run or function at all. It basically locks the game up once you try to drive it. So figured some of the other scripts arent right but I dont really know where to start when it comes to that. Just curious if some one had aready converted it because its a good looking mod.
