Will do and report back.
EDIT: Sorry, still getting the same CTD...
I tested this one and it crashed my savegame. I'm serious that you should ask whoever made RevDCM gamecore how they did that and then maybe learn some things from them to make good solid Vista compatible dll.
Here is the textfix for Civ4GameText_DCM.xml. The two missing entries have been added.
Just overwrite the old one.
. .. .. .. .... Nothing changed. CTDs still present, recent updates doesn't help.
There really is nothing to ask.
The components we share (DCM, ACO, IDW, Better AI, Unofficial Patch) are the exact same in code.
I even used the same HiTM v2.02 code that Arian used when he made his DLL that seemed to work in Vista.
So I'm using code that "worked" in Vista. There's no explanation for why it's not working.
Are you sure all references to directory structures are correct for Vista users, Grave? That structure is different and installing stuff sometimes gives problems.
I'm not sure what you mean... can you explain more?
I suppose Guerrillas shouldn't be built like normal units, right?
Here's a small fix:
In XML/PythonCallbackDefines.xml change this:
and in XML/Units/CIV4UnitInfos.xml
That's all folks
No, I meant for Guerillas to be built.
They can come in handy sometimes!
That sort of obsoletes the Partisan mod
Not really... because Partisans will automatically spawn if a city is captured, as long as the conquered Civ has Human Rights.
Well, not that important so forget it
I have played last night 3.19 and didnt have any problems!!! I hope it will continue without problems.
On a Vista PC??
Hey Grave. I think what Hyronymous means is that the Users/My Docs/My Games folders are all in different locations on Vista then in XP. The directory structure is slightly different, so if the HitM mod is refencing folder locations (like trying to access the Civ 4 .ini file) as they would be in XP, it would cause problems because it wouldn't be looking in the right place.
Something to consider maybe?
Playing vista I crashed..... on 3.19.
Thanks Master, that is indeed what I mean. Although it may look like something too silly to cause a crash I reckon it can if a resource file isn't available to read from. Either the game enters an infinite loop to find it or it crashes.
No, sorry on XP!
HiTM should always be installed in the Program Files/Civ4/BtS/Mods folder (or where every you installed BtS to, and never into the "My Documents" BtS directory. The reason is because of the custom interface colors... they won't work if installed into the My Docs directory.
Yeah, I know that. Sorry, I should have been more clear. What I meant to say was, even if games are installed in the Program Files folder, (On C:\Windows for example), or like in my case (X:\Games\Civilization IV) most games will still use the 'My Games' folder or similar location for the general running of the game.
For example, Fallout 3 will reference the Fallout3.ini and Fallout3Prefs.ini files in the Fallout 3 folder located in "C:\Users\USERNAME\Documents\My Games\Fallout3" under Vista, as well as storing save games there.
I assume that Civilization IV, along with HitM does this also, as the Civilization4.ini file is located in a similiar location, but that location differs slightly depending on whether you run XP or Vista.
Separate names with a comma.
