    Im loving the u-boats now =)

    Here's a bug I found at least on my computer.
    When I try to load a game I get a error.



    Loading normal BtS saves is fine but for RtW I always get that error so its impossible to load a game.

    Patch 1.1 for RtW: Add-on Pack 1!

    This patch fixes the release bug of not being able to load saved games.

    1. Download the patch: http://rtw.apolyton.net/files/RtW_AOP1_Patch1.1.exe
    2. Run the installer.
    3. Install to your Beyond the Sword folder (installer places files in correct locations).
    4. Run RtW.

    IMPORTANT:
    Due to the bug no previous saves of any version of RtW is compatible (including the latest release of AOP1).

    This sounds great, but unfortunately it doesnt work for me :( I just installed the 1.1 patch, loaded the mod and tried to play the Europe scenario that shipped with BtS as Hitler. I always get a CTD at the loading screen.

    Is this a bug or am i trying something impossible?

    This is how i did it. Of course it is possible that the problem lies on my system. But just to make that clear: What i am trying to do (playing a normal game as one of the Road To War leaders) SHOULD work, right?

    Havent had time yet to fully test the release due to work and stuff sadly, but considering my "special" installation type Im glad to say that installing it and starting the mod actually works :)

    So having Civ4 dvd version and BtS steam version doesnt seem to be a problem in terms of installation atleast, just installed the patch but have yet to try a game but I guess it proberly works :)

    One thing tho, is the whole Winter thing still affecting the whole map ? Or just the eastern areas like in one of the earlier betas ?
    (Having Winter on the whole maps is hard on my pc, turns take from 1min to 3mins when winter hits europe in beta3 :p )

    I am not getting a multiplayer option. Has anyone ever successfully played this scenario multiplayer?
    EDIT - my bad, I had put it in the wrong place. I have now gone as far as the player setup before it crashed to desktop. Will add the patch....

    Multiplayer worked fine for a friend and I. We were playing over LAN however. We stopped playing after it took about 2 mins for either person to end their turn due to the loading time.
