    If you haven't installed v2.00 as a full and clean install, it is STRONGLY recommended that you delete the entire \Program Files\Firaxis Games\Sid Meier's Civilization 4\Warlords\Mods\VISA directory and install a fresh, full version of ViSa v2.00 and then the latest patch, which includes all previous patches. Version 2.00 Full includes registry settings that are required by ViSa python files.

    A 'letter' increment in the Patch Build indicates a save game compatible update, whereas a 'number' increment usually means the update is not save game compatible.

    Full Version
    1. This mod is contained in an Automatic Installer, run the EXE (extract from RAR if you chose that download) and follow the directions.

    4. Please use Add/Remove Programs option in the Windows Control Panel to remove ViSa to clear the registry keys.

    Spoiler :
    KET, FOR SUPPORTING

    DALE - FOR HIS GREAT MOD - NO WORDS ARE NEEDED - WE ALL KNOW THAT HIS WORK IS AMAZING.

    We would like to thank all who made this mod possible:

    sevo - the maker of the great sevomod

    arma - creator of 2uu arma mod - who was our inspiration

    gir - special thanks for helping with problems and for his lovely mod - gir mod

    fitchn - for the great mod civmore

    ganart - for the extended mod

    TheLopez - for all the mod additions

    Gerikis - for the Multi-Player help

    We thank all the people who helped in reporting bugs to us
    just by playing this mod, you are doing us a great help and joy.

    And last but not least, thanks to Firaxis for making such a great game and platform to mod.

    ViSa Updates

    Known Bugs
    Spoiler :
    Memory Allocation Error on saving games (AutoSave or Manual) has been reported in multiple mods and multiple threads on CivFanatics. Our recommendation is to not play on any map size greater than LARGE. Other work-around is to change Graphics Settings to Low and disable all Effects. Any other setting changes to reduce save game file size will also help avoid this error. This appears to be a Firaxis save game issue, not any particular mod problem.

    SmartMap can cause errors in the two new Civic Categories (Education and Health Care). The default civic in those two categories sometimes is not selected on game startup. This also can happen on a 'normal' map immediately after SmartMap is used. Our recommendation is to not play with SmartMap.

    Languages besides English can cause errors throughout the game. Our recommendation is to play ViSa in English only.

    ATI Video Cards can cause numerous problems with this mod and vanilla Civ as well. Our recommendation is for all ATI people to download the latest video drivers without Catalyst.

    Upgrading from version before ViSa v2.00 Registry Key Fix can be downloaded and double-clicked anywhere to set the proper registry keys for ViSa. Download this and apply it (by double klicking it) from any place, if you have installed both Warlords and ViSa to standard directories. If you didn't choose default installations (We assume in this case that you know what you are doing), please proceed with the following rules.
    Only take these steps if you're NOT using default directories:
    open the "ViSa-210-regkey-fix.reg" with your windows Notepad
    change the "AppDir"=""C:\\Program Files\\Firaxis Games\\Sid Meier's Civilization 4\\Warlords\\Mods\\ViSa" to the proper directory you used for your personal installation.

    Note: it is highly recommended that you reinstall warlords and civ to the default directories "C:\Program Files\Firaxis Games\Sid Meier's Civilization 4\Warlords" on your computer.

    Enabling DCM Ranged Bombardment AFTER starting a game is possible thanks to the directions of chipper_30:
    1) Go in WorldBuilder
    2) Save it
    3) Edit it with a text editor and add Option=GAMEOPTION_DCM_BOMBARD in the options
    4) Reload it and continue your game

    Slowly playing through a game using the normal map generator now I've abandoned smartmap visa and quite enjoying myself though I did make sure Atilla wasn't in my game (find the static picture instead of animated head a tota switch off). Love the fact that part of Gir's mod is now part of the mod and find myself triggering golden ages just to get unique units :). Also see warlord military academy is adding a little extra which is great :).though a minor issue (doesn't affect game at all) is that then you get the axemen/swordsmen bonus on the first academy it's reporting them as our old friends the Special Forces and Marines (remember how much problems that caused the first time lol) though you do get the correct units

    OK, should be able to get the full v1.20 on my website/alternative link here and from the main website. Let me know if that speeds things up.

    Also, using a free download manager like Download Accelerator Plus (search Google) helps alot.

    Maps are not up on the To Do list yet....we have a TON of mod components to add to ViSa yet, in fact every single mod out there is at least on the maybe list :)


    I recommend downloading the full v1.20 and starting fresh...I haven't gotten 'great' starting locations with SmartMap but it doesn't crash either...

    And yes I wiped out my VISA directory completely to be 'clean' ;)


    Yes this should be CTD free and most bugs (except text) are fixed :)

    Do I need to DL 1.20 and patches or just 1.20 (b/c 1.20 contains all the patches)? Also, is the pakbuild included in 1.20?

    v1.20 includes the whole thing, patches, pakbuild...all the latest and greatest in one install file but must be used on a 'clean' install of ViSa.

    possible mod addition would be "my mp military mod by officer reene." tons of cool, good military stuff. I dont remember how do we get the great person mod activated again?

    We decided to keep the units a bit more realistic so those two are gone for now.


    Great Person art is not working...we will have a patch out in the next few minutes to enable them AND keep them in the pakbuild. mrgenie is an AMAZING programmer and I will hint that we will release next week something no other modder has been able to do, but has wanted to do :mischief:

    Actually I'm using a Clean pak build plus the pak patched build and the non pak build just for testing purposes. so far Smart map visa is flaky on all of them, and pakbuild patched is doing something strange and crashing the graphics driver (more likely crappy ATI driver though) however I have great persons working (i do have the art directory folder though ). to get GP mod just install the great persons art folder.

    BTW any work being done on getting Gir's perk system into the mod?

    PATCH 0.20b RELEASED

    This patch is save game compatible and includes Patch 0.20a as well. GreatPerson art should now be working from the PakBuild file as well...no other changes.

    I haven't looked at GIR's perk system....keldath might know more about putting that in than I do.

    Well Version 1.20 along with Patch 0.20b are different than either of those setups you are using so give it a try.

    BTW, I can max out my cable modem at over 300KB/sec with a download manager from the Alternate Website :)
