it didn't fix the missing or ghost leaderhead issue
Probably because they need the Windows fix to sell it as "Games for Windows" and "Vista compatible" - all others just need to keep downloading patch sniplets until they have the full patch complete
just get an high speed wired connexion =)
That worked and was much faster too. Thanks.
Why not wait until the real patching is released, and let this come with it? Unless this DirectX update will fix some graphics card issues, like strange leaderheads...then it might be very worthwhile for some. Anyone had their graphics glitches fixed by this?
EDIT: Read post above, seems this isn't the case
That is an issue with warlords not being properly patched
Does anyone know exactly what the patch is for?
I mean is it just to fix dx9c/windows compatibility issues or does it also fix in game problems? speaking of which I've played 40 hours of the game and there aren't any that really stand out to me beside the annoyingly high inflation
It doesn't fix any gameplay problems
The patch does have a new CvGameCoreDLL.dll but since there aren't any source code updates (other than compiler script) I assume they just recompiled it without making any changes
I ran the game for about six turns or so... it crashed before giving me an allocated memory error of some type... In short, if you're having problems with the game crashing, this patch is not for you.
*goes back to waiting in line for the real patch*
Just reinstalled warlords and repatched didn't help. I was under the impression that is was the video card i was using at least thats what was discussed in the bugs forum.
Worst patch ever! Nothing is changed. Even this patch has install problem. I had to download twice to run this patch.
But you have to do this patch if you want to play in MP(Gamespy).
Actually this might be about the only reason for this patch call it:
Synchronize German to Non-German versions (yeah they screwed up badly with their second largest market )
According to this thread it looks like this patch might cause CTDs when viewing the Civilopedia:
I think I might skip this patch considering it doesn't seem to actually fix anything.
Ya, I just reinstalled BTS and reverted to 3.02 over this bug. If you don't play multiplayer, don't install this patch.
Here is only info from Firaxis' website:
no i had posted my own thread like an hour before this guy did
Ok, I'm done waiting for a patch. Who can I email or what phone number can I call to attempt to get my money back? The game is broken at the way I want to play it and I haven't touched the box since I bought it.
Wat is your problem man. The game isnt broken its the best expansion pack ever. I dont know what your smoking.
