Oblivion - Shivering Isles Problem

I have succesfully installed Oblivion with POL, but now Shivering Isles causes trouble:
I'm a Ubuntu 11.04 user and try to install the german Shivering Isles addon.

When I try to install it, it says something like "Data not found" (don't know what it says exactly in english :p). After trying out few things (like try to start it again ;-)) I checked the script. I have to say that I have little to no programming experience, but I think it does not scan if there's a german POL user?
In addition I don't have a multi5 but rather a multi3 disc. Am I right that the line

POL_SetupWindow_check_cdrom "French/setup.exe"

checks if there's a setup.exe in a folder "French"? If so, it won't find anything because I only have "English", "German" and "Italien" on my disc.

Can I just change the line in "English/setup.exe"? And add a

elif [ "$POL_LANG" == "de" ]; then
wine start /unix "$CDROM/German/setup.exe"

Or is it far more complicated? I don't want to ruin anything on my system :-°

PS: You're doing an awesome thing here!

Thanks for the quick response!

I see that you've added few "elif"-thingies but what exactly does POL_SetupWindow_check_cdrom "French/setup.exe" do? Documentation says it checks if there's this specific file, but again on my disc isn't any folder "French" °_°

Anyways, it's loading, but now securom cries, that it couldn't activate a security module or something (copy protection? If so, I'd like to question it's purpose...)

POL_SetupWindow_check_cdrom check targeted file on CD/DVD to avoid wrong CD/DVD issue.

Your disc do not have french folder cause this addon is multi3 release only, so it contain only 3 language, French disk also have spanish and english language.

About anti-piracy protections, you will have to disable it because wine do not handle them. Since in Europe it's illegal to give hints/links about that, you will have to find how yourself.

Yeah that's clear, but why not check the English folder? Both have this folder, so it'd avoid more possible wrong CD/DVD issues. Or is this to check whether its the multi5 or multi3 version?

About the copy protection thing: I've tried it out with a new wine version (1.3.19) and I get a different error message (something about it couldn't find any drives). So there's no use but google ;-)

Thanks again for your time :)

I've just forgotten to change it to English files after primary test, that's all ^^
