    Well... you have hooked me on this mod, now I don't only play FFH2 all the time... I really hope someone will "upgrade" the earth maps so I can get all the new resources and stuff that has come out since v2.5. :goodjob:

    Ok then, thanks. I just read somewhere that 2.7 might not work in multiplayer but maybe it now does.

    Flay, do you play with the Revolutions part on? We are still playing 2.53 because it's been so stable for us and don't want to upgrade BTS only to find we'll have to reinstall because 2.7 isn't stable for multiplayer. How much OOS have you seen? What options do you use? Thanks!

    No
    Barbarian civ on, but no revolution.
    Have tried with minor civ but the AI sims to be not very "I".
    And the coloniste still give OOS.

    When playing 3 human and start with about 5-10 AI. I will say the 1st OOS came sometime after the christ. let say betvin 100 and 1000 AC.

    Map archipelago
    bab civ
    no rev
    large or normal size
    epic

    Colonist/Pioneer special features can be disabled in GlobalDefinesAlt.xml in Rise of Mankind\Assets\XML.
    This will elimate this source of OOS.

    When the game goes OOS (out of synch), what's happening is that the computations done on the different computers have come up with varying results when they are compared. For instance, when your warrior attacks a barbarian warrior, each computer figures the outcome based on a "random" seed (it is generated at the beginning of the game and all are using the same seed value). That value changes throughout the game. If somehow that value is not synchronized for one of the computers, the warrior may lose instead of winning and that player's game will be different than the rest. Having each computer figure the outcome of your actions keeps the time spent sending files back and forth down a lot, they check in with each other to see if the sum of the actions is the same (each computer returns a value). If that sum doesn't match, you get the OOS red letters and you will see one or more players will have a different value, that player (or players) are out of synch.

    If you continue to play for long when you are OOS, you will find that you are actually playing different games, where actions have different outcomes. We kept on once and I thought I was winning a war, when I was losing it! Ooops!

    We will go a max of two turns with it OOS, then the player with a different value exits and rejoins the game, this brings their computer in line with the rest of the group. Often an OOS will correct on the turn over, that is why we continue a turn or two.

    If more than one is OOS, then the host saves the game and we all leave and the host restarts the game. If it continues then, we all leave, restart our clients and clear our caches (load the client with the shift key held down) so that there isn't any saved information to confuse the issue. Sometimes we have to go back a few turns to an autosave if things are pretty messed up. Rarely the file gets corrupted and we give up on the game - esp. if it isn't going so well... :)

    I keep getting this message on the screen:

    BugOptions failed writing INI file .../Rise of Mankind/Strategy Overlay &

    BugOptions failed writing INI file .../Rise of Mankind/BUG Main Interface

    The game is still playable, but it's sorta annoying with all those messages.

    I've only played 5ish turns so I don't know if I have any more problems besides this.

    Anyone know how to fix it?

    One of his older postings said later this week, so it could be later today (Friday) or tomorrow. Or next week if something else came up.

    - Changed: unit infos now tell if unit can be drafted
    - Added: Module - Holy Wars pedia to RoM Concepts

    ------
    - changed: Main interface now show if unit Ignores Building Defense when attacking (BtS doesn't show this info)
    - Changed: Main interface now tells how many units collateral or flanking damage will hit (maximum)
    - Changed: Main interface now tells if unit can be drafted
    - Changed: GameUtils.py small tweaks to optimize code
    - Changed: SettlerEventManager.py sends now ModNetMessages when Pioneer or Colonist is used to build city (fixes OOS error for these units?!?)
    - Changed: BarbarianCiv.py disabled all UnitAI changes (SDK handles them all now for AI units), should prevent 'waiting for player' -problems
    - Changed: Revolution.py disabled all UnitAI changes (SDK handles them all now for AI units), should prevent 'waiting for player' -problems
    - Fixed: CvEventManager registers Pioneer and Colonist ModNetMessages correctly
    - Fixed: RevUtils.py getGameSpeedMod function did not use 1.0 value correctly with Epic speed, also changed the function to use RoM turn amount for Epic speed
    - Fixed: GameUtils.py AI players no longer should be able to build more than 3 Inquisitors

    -------------

    - Updated: Realistic Diplomacy now fully in WoC format, added files for Leaderpack 1 leaders, depencytypes added to those files so that if specific custom leader is removed from mod, the realistic diplomacy isn't loaded for that leader anymore since he doesn't exist. This prevents errors when loading and running the mod
    - Updated: Static leaders schema file
    - Updated: Holy Wars building and unit schema files
