Ahhh. I skimmed the posts, and missed the subtle zulu
in Ainwood's post.
The natives...err..Zulus...are getting restless!
Sorry, you'll have to wait til the 15th.
Um, isn't the 15th sunday? Does this mean Sunday's been kicked out of the weekend now?
Ok, I vote for Wednesday to take over Sunday's duties then.
Ok it is officially the 15th...Hmmm.. They must need sleep or somthing.
If it can only be released on 'the 15th', we might not see it till midnight tomorrow! Er, today. I'm hoping for this morning.
Edit: Forget about that, I got the times wrong.
Edit: Thanks ainwood
Oops! Sorry - I got mixed up with the time zones. Must be because I'm feeling a bit sick today.
I post it in an hour or two.
Just putting the final touches to the game release page.
FYI, the following bonues / handicaps are used:
Conquest class players: 50 gold + 2 extra scouts
Predator class players: Expansionist trait is turned off.
I have played COTM but not GOTM. I have CIV 3 Gold. Do i download the PTW version or the CIV 1.29 version save? I thought I had PTW, i don't have a start menu folder, although I do have a PTW folder at
C:\Program Files\Civilization III\Civ3PTW\Civilization3X.exe
I'm not sure what you mean by a Start menu folder.
C:\Program Files\Civilization III\Civ3PTW\Civilization3X.exe is your PtW executable file.You need to
- choose your player class from conquest/open/predator
- download the PtW start file for that class
- put it in your Saves folder
- launch the Civilization3X.exe application
- use Load Game to select and load the downloaded file
- start playing
I have Civ 3 gold. Use the #1 disk and it will auto play PTW. Put the save where Alan suggested when it comes up go to load file and pull up the save and play away.
Hey thanks all!
Where's the spoiler thread, Mursilis is anxious to report his start.
Just a non-spoiler report on the true randomness of the PRNG: I had a lot (50+) elite victories in the pre-cavalry battles without a single GL.
In my second turn of cavalry warfare (7 elite promotions on turn 1), my first 2 elite wins each produced a GL. Then 30 more elite wins without a GL. I sure glad I hurried that GL to the nearest city and used him right away. So in retrospect 2 GL in 80 Elite wins is about 1 in 40, which is a little high, but not that bad.
Ainwood msutve forgotten about us
Pretty much in the same boat. Had 59 elite victories so far, and my 2 GLs were in the same turn, in simaultaneous attacks.
not at all - I open them on the 21st NZ time, 20th rest-of-the-world time. Just got a bit side-tracked publishing the GOTM 33 results this morning. Give me a few more minutes
