Hey guys i have searched the forum but all people talking about .vpl but none mentioned how to use the new custom one.

My question is: I have downloaded the Ra2ImproveVPL from Apollo. I dropped it into the game folder, and nothing happens. I also tried to insert it into ra2md.mix and still no result.

(After the compaction of the mix file, a little index file was created inside the mix which cannot be deleted. Does it affect anything?)

What is the correct way of applying this new vpl?

Putting the .vpl file in the RA2 folder or a mix file will make it work. Apollo's vpl doesn't drastically change the lighting used on voxels, maybe you need a before & after to see the difference?

The index file is added by XCC Mixer & is an "index" of the files inside the mix file. Without it XCC wouldn't be able to read the content of the mix file.

AFAIK it has to be in an expand*.mix, but Ares might have changed that.
