Frequently Asked Questions Q: The mod just doesn't work. A: As with all computer problems, the first step to any solution is to check whether the plug is in the wall or not. Check that you have everything Fairy Tale requires. Fairy Tale is made for Civilization IV and needs the Expansion Pack Beyond the sword (BtS), which also needs to be patched to the latest version (3.19). In addition, it is recommended that you download all the latest patches for the mod as well (http://www.moddb.com/mods/fairy-tale). The Patch 3.19 for BtS can be found for download on the CivFanatics homepage (http://www.civfanatics.com/). Note that the game also has to be set to English Language! Q: I want to turn off some of the stuff that came with BUG. Where do I do that? A: Press the little round BUG Icon on the top left-side of your screen. That opens a detailed menu with lots and lots of options. Some reporting can be turned off for sure to suit this mod, and so on. Q: I have installed the mod, but it doesn't show up in the Advanced/Load Mod-menu A: You have probably installed it to the wrong folder. The mod (all Civ mods) should be installed in the mods directory on C: (or wherever your installation path is found). It should not be in the My Games-folder in Documents. Q: I am missing Interface. No maps, no icons, no nothing! A:There are a couple of things you can do. First. Be sure that the mod is indeed installed to the correct folder. NOT the MyGames folder, by the installation path in the Program folder as mentioned above. Second, see to it that the game runs in English only. Go into the Options menu and set the language to English. Third, the mod may conflict with Custom Assets. Try this. Find the Fairy Tale.ini file in the Fairy Tale folder where you installed it. It's right at the top under Mods/Fairy Tale. Open it using a text editor like Notepdad (just double clicking on it should do it). Find the lines where it says ; Custom Art from user folder is not loaded NoCustomArt = 0 and ; Custom XML and Python from user folder are not loaded NoCustomAssets = 0 Change the numbers to one. Like NoCustomArt = 1 and NoCustomAssets = 1 Then save the file. That should do it. Now run the mod again and try it out. Q: I get a "GCF Error: Failed to initialize primary Control Theme." A:This is a rare one. In some cases reinstalls have resolved it, in others it seems to be caused when Civ4 isn't installed in the typical location (under Program Files/Firaxis Games/). Q: Fairy Tale conflicts with other mods. I get error messages concerning other mods when starting Fairy Tale! A: There is a function in Fairy Tale's .ini-file called Modular Loading. This value is turned to 1. It will probably solve the issue by turning it to 0. Q: I experience Missing Text. A: Make sure the game is set to English Only. Go into the Options Menu, in the Main Menu, and set the game to work in English Language Only. Known Issues *There is an error message displayed upon creating some of the national heroes. The unit naming obviously conflicts with the naming logic of BUG. This only shows an error message, but doesn't break the game or anything like that. It is a minor annoyance.
