    Unresolved Issues:
    1. Some people report a "GFC error: failed to initialaize the primary control theme" error loading the mod. 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/).
    2. Sometimes free promotions can be lost if a promotion is granted through another means.
    3. Poisoned promotion isn't being passed in combat.
    4. Is there some way to keep automated workers from building over mana nodes?


    Permanent Changes (things that won't be "fixed")
    1. You don't get line of sight into cities with you religion if you control the holy city.
    2. Units can attack and cast in the same turn.


    To do:
    1. Trophies
    2. Horsemen spawn mana when they die
    3. Dirge spawn
    4. Magnadine captures barbarians


    Reporting Issues:

    [tab]I have four requests before you report issues:

    1. I dont expect anyone to read the whole thread. But please read this post and see if your issue is addressed in apatches you don't have applied, or in a patch that hasn't been released yet.

    2. Please don't report cosmetic issues here, use the cosmetic issues thread for that.

    3. Please don't "chat" in this thread. I hate it when real bug reports get lost in other posts, so please try to keep this thread as on task as possible (just for bug reports) and I will try to make sure everything mentioned here gets resolved.

    4. If you are noticing an issue please make sure you have python popups enabled so we can see what the real error is. To enable python popups in your CivilizationIV.ini change:

    Code:
    ; Set to 1 for no python exception popups
    HidePythonExceptions = 1
    To:

    Code:
    ; Set to 1 for no python exception popups
    HidePythonExceptions = 0

    I'm going to second what woodelf said. Game is currently borderline unplayable without being able to examine a city in any meaningful way.

    If you are having a issue in the city screen please provide the following information:

    1. Make sure the steps in the first post have been followed (especially providing any python error that may be appearing).

    2. What OS are you running?

    3. Where do you have FfH2 installed?

    4. What form of BtS do you have (Direct2Drive, Steam, Store copy)?

    5. Post a copy of your CivilizationIV.ini file.

    6. Extra special bonus points: zip up your entire "C:\Program Files\Firaxis Games\Sid Meier's Civilization 4" directory and everything under it and post it. I'll download and rip through everything you have to try to recreate.

    The secret is to find the pattern between the people that have the issue and those that dont.

    This is strange, but the problem went away.

    Information that might help in tracking it down:
    1. Windows Vista
    2. FFH2 is installed in the default location
    3. Store copy of BTS.

    I was seeing the problem until I modified the CivilizationIV.ini file to show python errors. Now switching it back to not showing makes no difference.

    Woodelf, can I take control of your computer and check it out directly? If so PM me your phone number and I'll give you a call.

    Got a crash when trying to use the Arena building. Guess that's just not yet fully implemented?

    I got a mutated worker with waterwalking and that guy happily autorouted his way across the ocean. Guess that's more cosmetic but a check that disables mutation for workers would be good I suppose (or better even special worker-mutations that affect the workrate, make em skip turns sitting around doing nothing, improving land chaotically etc.)

    I remote controled Woodelf's computer with the city error to take a look around but we werent able to figure it out. Oddly we didn't have permission to modify any of the FfH files on Woodelfs computer (even though we both verified he is definitly configured as an admin account on the PC).

    We will definitly need more help to try to isolate this so please answer the following if you are having this problem:

    1. Make sure the steps in the first post have been followed (especially providing any python error that may be appearing).

    2. What OS are you running?

    3. Where do you have FfH2 installed?

    4. What form of BtS do you have (Direct2Drive, Steam, Store copy)?

    5. Post a copy of your CivilizationIV.ini file.

    6. Do you have Warlords installed?

    Im really curious to see if anyone is having this problem in Windows XP.

    Another oddity on Woodelf's computer is he has some TXT_KEY entries in the opening menus. Not even for FfH specific stuff, just normal menu options. Is anyone else seeing that?

    @Ploep- oops, mutations aren't supposed to hand out water walking or flying. I will change that in a patch.

    Posted my current CivilizationIV.ini file in the post above. One possibly relevant thing that I just remembered is that I installed under a different account than I am playing under.

    Also Disciple of Leaves do not appear to have a combat animation.

    Founding order does not create an acolyte.

    Spreading order when it is your state religion does not create an acolyte.

    Adaptive trait doesn't come very regularly (my first change was at turn 168)

    Barbarians don't seem to enter your civ, they just skirt the border.

    Attached is a save that waits forever at the end of the turn. Only things that I can see that happened was that runes was founded at the beginning of the turn and that I pillaged a few tiles. Didn't see any python exceptions.

    Great game so far, definately the best version yet

    Playing as Sabathiel of the Bannor, I had a CtD when I captured Auric Ulvin's last city with a griffin summoned by Sphenor.

    Multiplayer OOS
    Putting AIs in the game caused it to OOS on turn 1
    With No Lairs and No Barbarians and no AIs we didn't get an OOS, though strangely Lairs remain even with No Lairs checked, but they didn't spawn any barbs (tho that could be because of No Barbarians).

    Best Defense event has a few problems. I realize these are probably place holders atm mostly to spread the event rigger around, but just wanted to note it.

    failure techs (ie economics) do not exist, nor the bonus trigger of the great wall.

    requirement of this quest is to build castles, though it triggers on engineering

    I can confirm I was given the same event and choices.

    Not sure if this is a bug. Was playing as Grigori. My first Adaptive choice occurred around turn 50. The next one was at turn 75. Has the "clock" been changed since it used to be every 100 turns starting at 5 if I recall correctly. Wouldn't know what happened at turn 100 since the Calabim declared war and destroyed me within 10 turns. That NEVER happened before. AI is noticeably improved. Love it.
