Wait, wait. Too many actions.
The DLC fix is intended for Steam, and only Steam. If you tried applying it to CS, it will break everything.
CS is an ancient build made in 2013 or so, nothing in the current game build is compatible with it.
If you want to have CS and collectors, the correct order would be:
Install CS, create a profile
Go to profiles, change CS profile to be 1 instead of 0 (to be second profile)
Apply DLC Fix to Collectors
Apply balancing patch to Collectors
Ok, I will test the order you describe,
But actually I did not apply the fix to CS (from what i am aware of,
cause as its installed in a entirely different folder.
I copied the files from dlcfix only to the Majesty 2 collectors in steam folder.
but in the CS readme it states that a existing installation and having to create a profile from the unmodified version of majesty 2 was required first, and then create a second profile in the CS build dedicated to CS only, in order to not lose campaign progress from vanilla majesty 2 + exp. But I guess that instruction applied to the old majesty 2 build, before steam?
When starting CS for the first time, after having autocreated profile from vanilla majesty 2, it will choose the profile 0, which was made in steam version, and maybe change it into the CS modified build version of profile instead, that may explain the Gamespy logo and asking for gamespy credentials in Multiplayer.
So it mean that steam collectors might conflict with CS, cause CS might overwrite the profile 0 (steam created) into the outdated way it worked before steam version, and the cause is that they use same profile folders.
Cross finger that it will work the order you propose, but i hope somehow you can find a solution to make CS be more compatible with steam version. Its a shame that the profile switching mechanic was removed in steam version, so its not compatible with the profile structure, CS is following.
But if i do it in the order you describe, will that prevent CS from overwriting the profile 0, when you start it for the first time, and automatically switch to profile 1?
Also from the fresh install of CS, it ask you to create the first profile, which is profile 0, do i need to create a new profile in CS, so there will be a Profile 0 and profile 1? Then delete profile 0, to make collectors create Profile 0?
Or do i just change the name of Profile 0 to Profile 1, then start collectors, to make it create profile 0, to be its default folder?
But will that ensure CS to be started with profile 1 and not overwrite profile 0 created by collectors?
Then do i go to the profile list to ensure profile 1 is the active one in CS?
This really is a bit complicated
