I have been a great help to Gears forums so I hope to bring some of my knowledge over to modacity!

First when you are installing Gears of War please click custom install or "Advanced" then check the box that says "Install Editor"; after the 1 hour or so that it takes to install and decompress all the files. You are like "WTF where is the Editor?!?!?!" Goto the Gears of war directory that should be located somewhere along this directory.

X:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Gears of War\Binary

Create a shortcut of "startup.exe" and then edit its properties. When that opens then add to the end of the Target "editor". The target should look like this...

"X:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Gears of War\Binary\startup.exe" editor

Congrats you now have a Shortcut that launches the editor.

I will post some red and green icons for gears of war. (Green for editor, Red for Game)

Is this for unreal or GOW? Never messed with either so please just humor me.

Technically both... both editors are the games themselves with an "editor" parameter on the EXE.

Unreal Tournament 3 installs an "editor" icon in your start menu

Gears of War doesn't, however. Hence this tutorial being 'for Gears'.
