    OK, I have to admit that finally merging those mods puts those who worked on it in close proximity to my personal Gods!

    Can't wait to use it! First I'd like to know how to merge with Better AI BTS. Does Dresden's guide still apply or is this not possible because BUFFY is already using it's own DLL? :confused:

    For those that need a link to the original merging guide: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=296534

    BUFFY has its own DLL, and even if you could merge Better BTS AI with BUFFY's DLL, you wouldn't be able to submit GOTM or HOF games using it. Instead, grab BUG (we'll be doing a release for it very soon) and merge it using that article.

    BUFFY requires v3.19 patch. The issue with the 'Lock Modified Assets' and the interface sounds like you have BUG installed under the customassets directory. At the moment, BUFFY and BUG (installed under customassets) don't play nice together. Rename your customassets folder or edit the BUFFY.ini file in the BUFFY mod directory to ignore customassets.

    Code:
    ; Custom XML and Python from user folder are not loaded
    NoCustomAssets = 1

    Yes. The Global Warming mod was added as one of the HOF additions.

    I'll let the HOF guys answer this question. In my opinion, the inclusion of such an awesome mod as BUG into HOF play will radically improve everyone's performance. However, my opinion may be slightly bias here :sad:

    True, but we probably missed lots of items.

    Thanks, I'll do that when I upgrade. Trying to finish WOTM20 under 3.17.001 first.

    Terrific job! Looking forward to using the new BUG and BULL versions when they are released as standalone downloads.

    BTS Unaltered Fun For You ?

    -- I'm actually hesitating between Unaltered/Unlimited, and Fun/Fame; which still makes 4 possibilities :p

    How do I switch off the warnings that the game doesn't meet the HoF criteria? As an aside why does the credit screen show BTS 3.17?

    You can't via the option tabs. Try editing BUFFY.ini file under UserSettings. I am not 100% if it will work.

    Code:
    [BUFFY]
    
    Show BUFFY Warnings on Dawn of Man = True
    Show BUFFY Warnings on Settings = True
    
    .
    oops.

    3.19 came out when we were nearly done with BUFFY and doing play-testing. We were very cautious not to add anything that wasn't absolutely necessary during such time. I was probably overly-cautious in not fixing that nor changing the BUFFY version # to be 3.19.001 to match the mod folder.

    BTW, I think I found a bug already. The whip overflow in the whip button hover (lower-right where flag usually is) and city bar hover isn't shown unless you select "Include Current Production" in the options screen. And in that case, it doesn't seem to actually include the current turn's production. The Production Bar on the City Screen works as it should (check that second box only to include this turn's production).

    Hi, I'm trying to play BUFFY in multiplayer, but the game starts with an OOS error, after that OOS errors frequently occur!
    We also have BUG 3.6 installed, mutliplayer install (third option during install). ( bug runs perfectly in multi!)
    Any ideas how to solve this ? Thanks.

    If you want to submit XOTMs ot HOF games under Vista, you may have issues. If you get warning messages for valid HOF/XOTM games please look here for fixes.
