I hope someone can help me as I am embarrassed to keep asking Darkpanda to help me with my issues with editing this game.

The fact is that I would like to lowercase the letters of the name of the player (leader) that appears in the final text when we are defeated and they name our return.

I don't mind you asking me for this :) only thing is I just do it when I can, so no guarantees...

Anyways, initial findings, untested, to fix this, this should remove the call to "to upper case" when writing the leader name on game over screen:

"original":




patched:



Instead of displaying the leader's name text, use "! Ciudadanos alarmados." (Citizens alarmed).
If I remember correctly, it belongs some notice.

So weird !!

Which block of bytes did you chose to replace ?

I just tested on patching EN v474.04 and it works just fine:

In fact I don't possess 475.04, but only 474.04 ...

I tried your patch on a copy of my 474.01, it starts ok, but then in-game its asking for "disk 1", looping forever...

I scanned the CIV.EXE from your spanish mod, and I find the exact same bytes at the same address:

versions EN.04:
address: 2CFC5h (ovr02:15C5)
original bytes: B806BA509A8629C41F83C402B806BA
patched bytes: B806BA909090909090909090909090
Can you double check you made the change at the right place ?

It does work when I patch my local copy of EN 474.01 with those bytes at the same addresse
 
This is what I do. I do it wrong?





To end the game, what I do is start a new one on the Earth and as soon as the caravan appears, I unban it.

The mod that I use now has even a lot of changes than the mod that you have downloaded from here.

If I revert the patch it stays as it was at the beginning (no bugs but in capital letters)
 
Ok can you try patching as follows then, with updated values ?
