Dear Master of Mana fans, I need your help.
Until earlier today I was playing and enjoying an earlier version of MoM, then through sheer coincidence I became aware that there's a version 2.11 along with the Xtended thing being discussed right here. So I downloaded the 2.11 install file and Xtended, deleted the old version, and installed the new one.
And now it doesn't work, as I get the GFC error mentioned in the first post. My path is "c:\Games\Sid Meier's Civilization 4\Beyond the Sword\Mods\Master of Mana", so it should work but doesn't.
I've removed the whole thing again and reinstalled just MoM 2.11, without Xtended, and it still gives me the GFC error. Now, as far as I can tell, there's no actual information in this thread on what to do in this case (though it seems like other have the same problem), so I guess it's not likely to be fixed in the foreseeable future. Therefore, it's not what I'm asking help with.
What I am asking help with is this: could someone please give me a download link to some earlier, pre-2.11 version of the game, without Xtended? At this point I'm just desperate to get MoM running again at all, even if with an older version.
EDIT: I've been working on this problem since I've posted the above yesterday. It seems like all versions numbered 2.0 alpha or later refuse to run on my computer, giving a GFC error, so I've given up on that. I've also found a copy of v1.3 kicking around, and that one works fine. I'm presently trying to recover what I had previously, v1.42.
Now, I've managed to scavenge a v1.40 to v1.42 patch and three other patches that must be applied on top of v1.42. The big problem is that I can find neither v1.40 (which I could then patch up to v1.42), nor a self-contained v1.42 file. A site called Software Informer claims to have the v1.40 install file on storage, but apparently "it's not on our server, we'll send you an automated email once the server gets updated", and honestly, I doubt it will ever happen. I would be very grateful if someone could point it towards the files I need.
