1- I assumed you have installed GME and followed its instructions.
2- Unzip the folder "Soviet Storm" into the MODS folder in the Panzer Corps folder.
3- Run the GME Utility and apply the mods in this order: 1) Massi Tiles, 2) Soviet Storm. (When a warning message appears, click YES, otherwise the new hex makers will not work)
4- Unzip and install (simply double-click over it) the font RUSKOF LIGHT.
5- Run Panzer Corps and be part of the Soviet Storm!!.
NOTE: I strongly recommend to use the "nocache" parameter in order to avoid crashes or poor performance. Create a short-cut for PanzerCorps.exe and add the parameter "/nocache" at the end of the command line, it should remain exactly like this:
