I have a few questions regarding A New Dawn.
1. Since I have installed the game on a new computer (bought it just because A New Dawn requirements ;-)), each new game receives lots of messages on the openening about failing to create INI file - see civ4anewdawn bugs 02 picture below.
Is there something wrong with my computer?
2. This may be linked with those failures - Whenever I start a new game (or sometimes when open a save file), after I had changed options in the BUG Screen - say I have enabled opportunity fire and bribe missions in RevDCM tab, multiple religion spread in A New Dawn tab, and I switched off some of the alerts (most of them about pending stuff) - and after I saved the game with those changes and turned the game off, I have to make these changes in BUG Screen again. And again, this only happens on my new computer - no matter the version of A New Dawn.
I now have Win7, 64-bit operating system, with 6GB RAM... do you need anymore details?
My previous laptop is an old one with windows xp and as I can still open Beyond the Sword on it (it takes ages these days) I can compare and see there is something wrong with my new computer. Could you advise any changes I may need to make, please.
To be clear - BUG options are kept when I leave a game to main menu and transferred to other new games, but if I leave to desktop, everything is lost, unlike on my old laptop.
3. While installing A New Dawn there are some options at the beginning - such as formations, blue marble terrain (or whatever, I don't remember it now exactly) and others. I understand that there is no way to play game saves without formations option installed in A New Dawn with formations installed, and the other way around. Am I right, or is it my new computer again? I have tried that and had to start a scenario from the beginning.
Strange thing, though, is that scenarios made in one version, work in the other one. That gives a bit of hope - I can always save the game made with formations option on as a scenario, unistall A New Dawn, install it again without that option and try to play the scenario.
4. And there is an issue with scenarios, or at least some of them - I made a map without much jungles, which I had in one certain region. After I've loaded the scenario and customized it a bit (I got rid of some victory options) and played some turns, I have encouter jungles where they weren't supposed to be... and I'm not sure of that but with each turn, or every few turns, new jungles seemed to appear in a new place on the map.
I've noticed that with A New Dawn 1.76 beta 5. It didn't happen before. I think.
Is there any explanation to that? Do you want to check the scenario file?
Thanks in advance for any replies.
