    Hi,
    Thanks for reporting bugs, I fixed it.

    Unfortunately there was an error loading the SAV file(I do not understand why?), but I still fixed the errors described:
    I couldn't see it, but I know the cause of the error. :sad:
    hiba_import.jpg

    All audio files in the audio directory(.../Art/Sounds/ Ambience Sfx/) should be deleted and then post the latest patch.
    The annoying voice disappeared from me. It is possible that you did not overwrite the old voice by paching?:confused:

    I all music has been replaced (I except for diplomacy, it has yet to be edited), based on the atmosphere of the game mod.
    Is it possible to play music from the Misc Library? In any case, I will include this as well.

    I fixed this bug.

    Me it didn't like use more naval cannons before they got to know the saltpetre(corsair ships, Pirate-shipB, etc)
    The reason for the bug was that I took it in two and it stayed, is a link left in the ini file that should have been deleted
    I fixed this bug.

    I will upload the new fixes soon.

    The influence of governments in the new repair will be slightly modified. Meanwhile I am expanding the civilopedia description.

    new fixed patch, meanwhile well fatted (due to added music for overwriting):

    I wanted to elevate the mood of the game mode with the added music. I selected all music according to the character of the species. The music is from youtube.

    In game mode, I wanted to use species-specific units and buildings. Each species has a strength. My goal would be to be a balanced game despite the differences

    I deliberately made barbaric(natural creature) units strong, the AI started the game nicely despite the difficult start, in the few games I played.
    I would like to make the units of species living from smaller units cheap, while the very strong units are expensive.
    For example, the undead can build many skeletal units because they are very cheap to produce, in contrast, higher-powered dragons are much more expensive.

    Unfortunately I make it slowly with mode fixes or additions because there is a job and family as well. :blush:, but I try. :)

    I am asking everyone that if you find any bug in the mod please let me know.

    it would make it easier to test beta mode if you reported bugs if you found it.

    About the game mod(some thoughts):
    I imported the all units from civfan years ago, so unfortunately many times the names of the makers are unknown:(
    it would be good to know whose works are the animated units.
    Most of the buildings were made by me. I imported other works some buildings from the civ fanatic.
    I made some of the new citizens, the other part was imported from other mods to the mod.

    :thumbsup:Thank you to the work of those who created the imported things for the mod.:thumbsup:

    :cool:If anyone knows who made those things please let me know.(units, citizens, ect), because I want to signal the creators in this mod.

    Hi there,

    This looks like a great mod! However i have a issue with mod. On the first turn the moment i settle a city it immediately crashes the game. I can move my units for several turns and no problems. But the second i settle my first city, it crashes. I get this on other mods aswell so maybe its a general problem? Do you know of any solution?

    Hi
    I didn't encounter the error, it happens in the epic game as well?
    Did you try to reinstall the game?

    Maybe a screenshot would help with the error.;)

    Are you running CivIII via Steam?

    If so, you might need to adjust the EFM labels.txt file accordingly. This file is in the folder .../[Civ3]/Conquests/Scenarios/[EFM]/Text/.

    Open the labels.txt file in any text-editor, and scroll down until you find the lines 'PING' and 'Host'. If there is not a line 'Unknown' in between them, then you (might) need to insert it.

    If that allows you to play EFM without a crash when you found your first town, then you might want to try following the same procedure with any other mods which are crashing on you: look in their .../[Civ3]/Conquests/Scenarios/[ModName]/Text/ folders and adjust those labels.txt files in the same way.

    Some modders are kind enough to also include a 'labels STEAM.txt' file in their mod's ../Text/ folder, where they have already made the needed change. If so, then all you need to do is to rename the mod's 'labels.txt' to e.g. 'labels OLD.txt' (or simply delete that file) and then rename the 'labels STEAM.txt' to 'labels.txt'.

    (I can't remember offhand if @unartis did this in EFM, sorry!)

    Found another minor bug: the DarkElfWitch.ini has a mistyped entry.

    EFM missing file bug2.png

    I fixed the typo in my installation (all the .flc and .wav files for this unit are named correctly/consistently), and I've attached the edited file below, for anyone who needs it (as an ordinary .txt file, because .ini is not one of the permitted file-extensions for uploading files to CFC). To use the edited file, it should be downloaded (e.g. to desktop), renamed as 'DarkElfWitch.ini' and then copied/moved to the folder

    ...\Conquests\Scenarios\Earth fantasy\Art\Units\DarkElfWitch\

    overwriting the existing .ini file for this unit.

    In other news...

    Today I DL'd the v.1.11 .zip, copied the contents into ../Conquests/Scenartios/Earth Fantasy, then patched with the v.1.14 and then the v1.15 patches. At each stage, I was overwriting all 'old' files with the 'new' ones.

    This didn't fix the nasty screech in my game-in-progress, so I then copied all the files from my ../CivIII/Sounds/Ambience sfx/ folder over to the ../Earth fantasy/Sounds/Ambience sfx/ folder -- again, overwriting everything, and deleting the one .wav file that didn't get overwritten.

    (I realised later that this was kinda dumb/pointless: I could have just renamed the mod-folder and so forced the mod to use the epic-game files in their original location instead -- but I still have the mod zip-files saved elsewhere).

    But even that drastic measure still didn't fix the screech (which it should have done). So I'm a little stumped here :confused: What am I doing wrong? :dunno:

    EDIT:

    Ooh, just thought of something else: I noticed that, compared to the epic-game and conquests (which I still play, using @Puppeteer's mood-badges), the human 'unhappy citizens' ("sad-faces") appear to have had their graphics exchanged with those for the 'resisting citizens' ("angry faces").

    While this is not a problem with the mod per se, having the faces now in the 'wrong' places on the city- and domestic advisor screens compared to where I 'expect' to see them, is a little disorientating. Was this a deliberate change?

    Thank You,
    I saved it and put it in another repair patch. :)
    I don't understand which audio file is still causing the problem. :confused:
    Is it conceivable that it is caused by the toad’s(.../Units/Croaker/CroakerFortify.wav and ...Units/Giant Croaker/GiantCroakerFortify.wav) voice,because it's pretty deafening?

    This is a random bug due to the added citizens, the citizens image has slipped.
    I wrote about this in post #54#, (it appeared only in the undead).
    It will take longer to fix this because i have to write it in the biq file as well and the popHeads.pcx file must also be edited.
