Did you get that on Steam?
Seems like a lot of people are bitching that you can't use all the good mods for it if you buy it on Steam but if you get it elsewhere you can.
What's your experience been?
That's nonsense. Put the mod into the correct directory it works. Some games you have to right click the game in ur steam libary and click to run the mod instead of vanilla.
If there's a game that won't work w/ mods w/ steam I've yet to find one.
I think the professor was having terrible/intermittent downloads b/c of his network. If there's a conflict it would cause a couple devices to keep butting heads, even though device seems to be drawing an IP and sort of works. I've seen networks running fine accept for a device b/c it was running the same IP as another. Ppl reboot the modem and router, but usually won't reboot the hub b/c the network seems fine. Reboot it too. Seems stupid but so it goes. shrug. I manually assign IPs to avoid this. Most likely his ISP just sucked but it's good to rule things out.
I bring this up b/c his wife was streaming a movie while his computer was crap. One device working fine and another cutting out... hmmmm.
