    ======Events With Images======
    Version: 1.0
    Creator: EmperorFool (thanks go to him!)
    Uploader: Renegadechicken (complaints go to him!)

    This small "mod" allows modders to add images (.dds files, specifically) to the
    event popup window. Thanks to this mod, once installed the only changes modders
    have to make are in the XML!


    **If you decide to change the core game files (such as the original BTS, Warlords,
    or "Vanilla" CvGameCoreDLL.dll), always make sure to back up your originals!**

    1. Place 'CvGameCoreDLL.dll' in the Assets folder of your mod's directory.
    Example: ...Beyond the Sword\Mods\My Mod's Name\Assets
    2. Place 'CIV4EventSchema.xml' in the Events folder of your mod's directory.
    Example: ...Beyond the Sword\Mods\My Mod's Name\Assets\XML\Events
    3. Place the remaining files (EventswithImagesREADME.txt and EventTriggerInfosTEMPLATE.txt)
    in any folder you like, just remember where you put them,because you may want them as a

    1. Delete 'CvGameCoreDLL.dll' from the folder you placed it in (NOT in the original
    game files; if you delete the original file, your game will no longer run!).
    2. Delete 'CIV4EventSchema.xml' from the folder you placed it in.
    3. Note that if you remove this functionality from your mod for any reason by deleting
    the new 'CvGameCoreDLL.dll' and 'CIV4EventSchema.xml', ALL your event entries in your
    EventTriggerInfos file will have to be edited; they can no longer contain the <EventArt/>
    Tag (see "How to Use" section for more details).

    3. HOW TO USE

    This mod adds a new Tag, <EventArt/>, to the EventTriggerInfos.xml file using the
    CIV4EventSchema.xml file. To use this tag, however, you will have to add it to your
    EventTriggerInfos.xml file or your mod will be unable to parse that file (in other words,
    it won't work). The form of this tag is as follows:
    <EventArt>Folder\Mod Folder\Location of Art\image.dds</EventArt>

    The included TEMPLATE file shows where this should be placed. Add the new tag as shown,
    and your events will have the ability to display images! Enjoy!


    None as of this release.

    Note, however, that this mod has ONLY been tested on Civ4 BTS version 3.17!
