Unread post TOOLS100 in Trade Wars 2.20b
When I am in the Trade Wars Command Center, I can't get TOOLS to work from the drop down menu. It says that TWGS Tools hasn't been installed. I downloaded TOOLS100 from the EIS site but when I click on the .exe file nothing happens. Advice? I have gotten the standalone server to work, so I can play locally (which is badass!). Also I was successful in getting SWATH to work - blast from the past!

It is a bit tricky to install it. I am not sure the exact order, it usually takes me several attempts to figure it out. It is something like, in combination of: doing a reboot, having the TWGS offline and closed out, and then attempting to install the Tools, rebooting and then bringing TWGS online. Otherwise it will refuse to install.

IIRC, the tools are just alien and ship name editors.
I would recommend just editing the text files with notepad.
