Anyone know how to get these to work?
Curse Microsoft and their lack of backwards compatibility.
Another 16-bit program; not surprising really. I'm running a 32-bit OS right now, so I can't test. It should probably be rewritten. It's a very simple program: it searches a file for the string, "EVNT", and deletes everything from that point onwards.
Choice.com can be dispensed with. It's a matter of rewriting batch files.
Huh, so when you reload said savegame, Civ2 adds the switched events.txt on, right?
When you reload a saved game with no embedded events, the game loads them from events.txt (or randomly from any text file with the 'events' prefix in ToT).
Interesting. Well, this will actually make old scenarios easily playable again! *breaks out hex editor*
Here is Delevent been rewritten. I compiled it for 32-bit windows, but it shoud run at 64-bit too.
Source code included.
UPDATE: GPL license removed. Just freeware program.
Excellent work! :b:
If I include it with a scenario, do I need to include the GPL? I imagine that eventually this file is going to be distributed in the same manner as the original regardless.
To avoid this small inconvenience I've just removed GPL from it

Makes things simpler. I've updated the following ToT conversions: Cross & Crescent, The Cruel Sea, Imperium Romanum, Red Front and Spartacus with the new version of Delevent. They should be 64-bit compatible now. All batch files use SET /P for the selection menus as well.
