Did you read Getting Started.doc? If you did everything it told you, and there is still no sides folder, just remunge. If it does it again, reinstall.

I also recommend using THIS thread. You can still find some useful stuff, even though you can't register a new account.

ok, first i use visual munge to make a map. then i copy all the republic assets and make a REP side in my sides folder. i then use gimp to edit the skins i want and when i save, i uncheck the RLE compression. then i go to map_abc/build_/sides and i go to the REP folder and click the munge thing

Therein lies your problem. After you're done making changes to the map, you go to

data_abc\_build\Modtools VisualMunge.exe

You munge the map twice, once to make it, and once to put it in-game.

In VM now:
Make sure "Common" is checked.
In the "Sides" dropdown box, select the side you want munged, or select EVERYTHING.

After you're done editing the skins.

1)Go to "C:\BF2_ModTools\data_ABC\Common\scripts\ABC".
2) Open ABCc_con.lua. This is where the game's functions are, like which sides/units show up in-game.
3) Go down a bit. You'll see the line
Code:
 ReadDataFile("SIDE\\rep.lvl",
Add a dc: before SIDE\\. It should look:
Code:
 ReadDataFile("dc:SIDE\\rep.lvl",
This tells the game that it is a customized side, something you've made changes to.
4) Save it. Munge the way I told you before. Notify of any further problems.

What happens when you try to run the game, though?

Did you backup the default side? Always do that. To properly replace the side, go to:

Code:
"[Your SWBFII Directory]GameData\DATA\_LVL_PC\SIDE"
Backup rep.lvl, and replace it with the rep.lvl from

Code:
"[Your SWBFII Directory]\GameData\addon\ABC\data\_LVL_PC\SIDE"
If you've done that, and it still fails, run the game and Private Message me the contents of your BFront2.log
