Download the Windows files and extract them into UQM's main directory.
Download the effects package and place it into UQM\content\addons. Do not extract the contents of this .zip file, leave it as it is.
Run uqm-balance.exe to play.
We are looking for someone to build the Balance Mod on OS X with GCC 4.7. Older versions of GCC are not accepted.
