Wanted to check out the low maps (being on Mod: WK King of the Hippo), KOTH6_Amistad and KOTH6_goldenpit worked fine, on [email protected]_Nomad I couldn't make buildings. And I didn't find Rift Islands anywhere.

So I went to the WK installer and run it on Old Mods/Patches: KotH, based on 5.8.1 (b) -- now I can't even open a game on Voobly. Any ideas what went wrong?

You probably installed the wrong mod - There is a "KOTH5" data mod, which was used in the previous tournament (and now is intended for rec viewing). The mod for the current one should be "King of the Hippo".
I believe there's also a bug connected with installing old data mods that require edits to the drs file, it looks like this can under some circumstances corrupt the base installation - So you might have to rerun the installer to get base WK to work again, then install the "King of the Hippo" mod based on that.

I can't get the mod to work. It installs with no errors, but loads a black screen for a second and crashes whenever I launch. I installed with a fresh downloads of 5.8.1.

Ok got it working by deleting all the files related to the old 5.7.4, re-running the base 5.8.1b WK installer, and then reinstalling KOTH6 mod. There must have been a corrupted file somewhere.
