    Cool, I hope so. As I recall in some previous folks attempts at new civs (hopefully not the Gold Team) they'd either simply copy the personality of another official Firaxian Civ with the same characteristics or perhaps the settings of the leader they used as the basis of the modified leaderhead animation.

    Weird, same as before when I'm using this civ patch, the game crash to a black screen and the computer is frozen after a few turns (+- 100). No problem without the civ addon..

    I wonder if it's some sort of memory issue as this Civ add-on takes up a lot of space.

    Hi,

    I get a whole bunch of CTDs in the "Play Now!" Civs selection screen, either when I click on a civ's name (ie. Irish empire or Cham empire) or when I click on a second or third leaderhad (ie. Cochise of the Dinnehih, Hidalgo of Mexico or David of the Israeli). I suppose that the right first leaderheads of the Cham and the Irish are the one that are doing CTDs.

    I think CTDs are caused by me using Wine and Ubuntu (Linux) to play to Civ4, since no one seems to have this problem. Otherwise, I'm using BTS Complete, 3.17, RoM 2.41.

    The thing that really bother me is that I don't see any difference between David of Israel and, say, Teuta of Albania... (also, some graphics don't work, like the Croatian LH that looks exactly like its persian base).

    I'll monitor the process on a next try.. but I don't think it's memory related, it's not a CTD, it's really a full pc crash. Moreover, I'm using an x64 OS with plenty of available memory..

    Well there aren't any better ones at the moment. I've sent some more unique LHs to zappara. Like David by Ekmek. So he has to put them in game. ;)

    Okay after a few more tests, seems that when I play windowed mode (so I can easily monitor how much memory the process takes) there's no more crashing.. that's definitively weird!

    Could someone upload this addon on another mirror? I never liked FileFront because of their high download times, but now this is just ridiculous. It takes 7+ hours to download this file (330 MB), whereas 2 GB normaly take 2 hours with my connection.

    Tried the pack in a multiplayer game and the hud was alternatively missing for the players.. 1st time player 1 has no hud, we restarted, second time player 2 has no hud.. even rejoining the game multiple time didn't solved anything. Single player games works fine now though..

    Reinstalled everything from scratch to make sure I had done everything in order - Unfortunately on generating a map tried various ROM_(version) s the game just crashes on initializing stage with a C++ runtime error :(

    this happens both custom game and normal start and with a large map

    zappara,

    For your info , with the Addon-civs patched to 1.3 and using ROM 2.501 I am still getting a "runtime error " message and CTD when trying to use the Giant or Gigantic map sizes. Loads ok using huge map size.

    Have now tried a few configuration

    ROM 2.4 and extra cive pack (2.4) - no issues at all
    Rom patched to 2.5 but no extra civ pack - sometime crashes on map generation (smart map) but usually working

    ROme 2.5 plus extra civ pack (also patched) - installation is as above - crashes everytime on map generation (every map script Ive tried so far - with large map :(

    The run time error seems to be related to the size of map and type of map generated

    Just tried a small ROM_Tectonics and it went fine - any larger and I get a crash

    Done a little further investigation - looks like the problem is related to memory usage using Winxp32 - the map generation chokes it appears on lack of memory whereas on winxp64 it runs smoothly

    Hey Zappara,

    As I'm really hoping I don't have to re-download ALL of the required steps, any chance you'll put up a Civs Add-On v1.3 in it's entirety I can slap onto my Civ Add-On-less RoM 2.5 beta?

    So will Civ Add-On v1.3 be fully compatible with the final v2.5?

    I'm having the same problem. Though it doesn't seem like 2.4 is available for download anywhere... at least I can't find it. Oh well, I'll just play without the extra civs for now.
