Negative progress; the game now crashes before the civ choice screen.
Makes no sense. The only difference in the .dll file is in the loading after the main menu. Are you sure you are using the Nov 16 version of RFCE. Also the .dll file should go into the RFCEurope\Assets.
I'm positive. I just reinstalled RFCE from the Nov. 16 .rar to check. I'm putting the updated .dll file in the assets folder, where it replaces the existing one (which is the same size, but modified a day earlier).
I don't have some of the other files you had me add earlier installed, as I'd just reinstalled the RFCE folder. Should I go back and re-add those?
Update: Now the program crashes before the select civ screen even with the older .dll file. I'm going to try tossing everything and restarting again.
At one point you had it to the point where you could choose a civ. The .dll is supposed to help the crash afterwards. Was it right after you used the .ini file that I send you.
Ok, re-downloaded and re-installed the Nov. 16 version, after wiping everything and restarting. It continues to crash to desktop upon the launch of the civ choice screen.
I can go back and add in the small xml and dll files attached previously, but this seems to be a new set of issues. Should I go back to the Nov. 13 version?
Can you see the screen and choose a civ. If so, then try to replace the .dll file with the one I gave you earlier.
Previously, I was able to do that; currently, I am not. It seems like the November 16 version worked yesterday; I'm not sure what changed between now and then that would have messed it up.
And the entire time the rest of Civ IV works well?
I don't know what to say. The only other thing that comes to my mind it reinstall the entire operating system, but that would probably be too much trouble. When I give out the next version of the mod I will add another .dll file that you can try if the first one doesn't work.
I'm not sure that I can reinstall the whole OS - the computer technically belongs to my school and not to me, and I'm supposed to minimize the degree to which it is messed around with. I appreciate your efforts at help, and I'm sorry that it's been such a struggle. If nothing ends up working, I can make changes to the map by pulling up an old version, flagging tiles, and sending you a spreadsheet with resources or changes listed.
Wait, new problem. Now ordinary civ mods don't work either. !^&#@^* I'll reinstall BTS again, I guess.
1. Uninstall BtS.
2. Uninstall Civ IV.
3. Delete everything in Program Files\Firaxis Games
4. Delete everything in My Documents\My Games\Beyond the Sword ( NOTE: except possibly save directory with the savegames, but move them somewhere else and don't bring them back until everything is working)
5. Install Civ IV
6. Make sure Civ IV works.
7. Install BtS.
8. Make Sure it works.
9. Install the latest version of RFC (not RFC Europe, but RFC).
10. Update BtS to 3.18 (actually probably you can install RFC after the update, but justin case do it the other way around).
11. Make sure everything works, mods and regular BtS.
12. Install RFCEurope Nov16 (just put the directory in place).
13. If not working, try replacing the Civilization.ini file in My Games\Beyond the Sword with the one posred by me earlier. (back up the existing Civilization.ini).
14. If not working, try to replace the CvGameCoreDLL with the on that I posted earlier. (back up the original RFCE CvGameCoreDLL.dll)
15. Report how far did you get on each step, what seems to be working and what not.
BTS 3.17 is the latest version available AFAIK. Do you have a source for the 3.18 version?
I wish I did, latest RFC version was something .18 and BtS is 3.17
It'll probably be a few days before I can get to this, but thanks for the tech support. I'll check back in after trying it.
After full removal/reinstall and patching, I can run the most recent version. Thanks for the tech support - updated resource and city placements coming tomorrow.
any chance to use filefront instead of rapidshare ?
I'll try using filefront for the next upload. Since 3Miro indicated he would be gone/busy this next week, I intend to post full uploads incorporating my work. I have made a bunch of little changes and plan to incorporate St. Lucifer's modified map (when it's done) into the next test version.
The map update is finished. Updated version is attached.
-Coastlines of England, Scotland, Ireland, Netherlands, and Italy updated as per Cornelio's suggestions.
-Moved the mountain in Sicily; added a mountain to Wales as per Jessiecat's suggestion.
-Made some terrain modifications in England as per Jessiecat's suggestions.
-Added some moorland to Sweden and Gotland.
-Went through the map and added resources to most locations. Russia/Ukraine may need some additional modification, as may Germany - I wanted to see where the cities spawned before adding anything.
-Changed some terrain in N. Africa to plains from desert, particularly around Marrakech.
-Removed some of the sugar from the Canaries/Azores to make sugar less common/accessible except by colonization. Deleted the nearest Canaries in the interests of geographic accuracy. Added salt to one of the islands in the Canaries and Azores.
-Shrunk the Pripet marshes a little to make them more accurately sized.
-Removed corn from the map; replaced it with barley.
-Eliminated much of the gold, silver, gems, dyes, and incense from the map. Added cotton to Turkey and Egypt. Replaced some of the luxury resources in W. Europe with honey.
-Moved several independent cities - Bordeaux, Tolouse, Caen, Pisae, Firenze, Milano, Tours.
-Deleted several independent cities - Calaris, Ajacco, Pamplona north, Caen, Tours, Freiburg, Graz.
-Added Augsburg as an independent.
-Deleted the far NW Byzantine city (I've forgotten the name); made Rhodes an independent.
I think this is the list, although I may be forgetting things. I'll add updates as I remember them.
I like your changes very much. Esp. England which looks much more realistic now. I like your addition of Augsburg and ditching of Graz. As far as the next list of indies go I'd like to keep the no. in the Germany/Poland area fairly limited though as well as in Britain. My suggestion would be;
Tonsberg (flips to the Norse)
Gdansk (flips to Poland?)
Krakow or Breslau
As for Russia, I would have it as:
Yaroslavl (flips to Moscow?)
Smolensk (flips to Moscow?)
with Khazan and Samara as barb cities.
I would leave out Kherson as it seems to be grabbed by Bulgaria in every game I've seen and we really want them to expand south and west not north. I think its important to encourage the AI to build in these areas so I've tried to keep the list to a bare minimum. What do you think of this?
Where do I put the updated map?
In RFC europe/public maps
There should already be 2 other worldbuilder saves....
