Found this oneStill mirrors need updating. Anyone please send me working link to patch.
I am playing BTS-- Rise of Mankind , and when I try to use the strategy overlay function I get a BUG error failure of INI file .
The strategy layer functions properly , but the error message ( 6 times) is overlaid on the screen. It also blocks out all in game turn notifications.
Any help would be appreciated.
Hello Lymond/others. I have been trying for two hours to figure out how to load Buffy Mod and can't seem to do it. It appears that I must first download the BTS 3.19 patch, which in turn requires first the BTS 3.17 patch. I was able to download the 3.17 patch but can't seem to find a working link to the 3.19 patch. All of the mirrors don't seem to have working links. Am I missing something?? Thanks in advance for the help. I have played BTS out of the box for a few years now and am trying to graduate to Buffy which seems to be a great improvement from reading comments on the CFC forums.
Lymond,It's important to understand where you got your copy of Civ IV. If you got a direct download (Civ IV Complete) or Steam version, the game should already be patched up. Steam version requires something different, so let me know if that is what you have.
Regardless, Steps 1 and 2 must be performed from the following page from the HOF site:
I got it the old-fashioned way. Bought it out of the box and loaded it onto PC from the CD in it.
Lymond,Is it the Complete version or separate? Not sure what state the disk version of Complete was in at release. Go to main menu > Options > About this build and let us know what is says. Probably do need to patch the game up as described in the following thread over in tech forum:
Whether or not you need 3.17 installed at all may depend on the version of the disks you have. I'm well over a decade removed from computer disks - for anything - so don't recall this stuff.
I do know that with this disk version - well any version - but especially the disk version you should run the game in Win 7 compatibility mode. (And check "run as administrator" as well while you are there per HOF instructions)
I recall there were some SecureROM issues with the disks version after the Win 10 upgrade, but I think once you patch to 3.19 that should not be an issue with BTS - and you do not need the disks once you are on 3.19.
I checked some of the links to the patches and you are right that some are dead, and other seem highly questionable. I'm pretty sure these patches can be found, but really CFC needs to do something to get copies on the servers here so there is no dependence on questionable storage sites. I'll do some searching and contact the admins as well.
That makes me think I may have had 3.19 pre-loaded on the disk
