    This mod wasted my time for 2 evenings! 2 f***** evenings.

    The modder is to blame for not posting a warning about the dysfunctionality of the mod!

    As much the efforts of every volunteer work are to respected as much is the irresponsibility of the release of an unstable mod - the more without warning - to condemn!


    As recently as informing searches this sub-forum the possibility of instability is recognized.

    One Bad Memory Allocation continously followed by the other.

    Horrible.

    If u dont want to waste ur time than better go to stable mods like FFH2 or RoM!


    p.s. i tried 1.1 (patch), 1.0 and even the so called fixed ones(after i had to inform because of instability).
    Iam really angry, selfcontrol is sometimes hard to preserve...2 f***** evenings!

    After some search the reason probably is not the mod, but a core-problem of the original coding:

    Firaxis fixed the well-know MAF issue for BTS, but still some mods just go over the 2gig border (i think this still is in the responsibility of modder).

    Recommendation is to not game large or huge maps with more than 10 opponents.

    Test is in progress.

    NOw after setup of standard map limited to 10 opponents the MAF didnt occur, but Runtime Errors in random situations (save/load/unit move/diplo-screen).

    For standard conditions this mod is gameable, but NOT comfortable.
    Since i prefer to game huge/monstrous maps with 20+ opponents no mod for me...

    I am currently trying to make this mod more stable, you can try a first new patch here: Patch_1.0c.7z.

    It's fine if you want to make a complaint about a great well indented historical and political accurate mod but complaints do not fix problems. Maybe if you had some experience in tweaking the mod, or coding the language yourself, you know knowledge is power so why don't you do your own troubleshooting and maybe we could have a very good working mod here. I would rather have the solution rather than to complain about it. Make a modding team and revamp this mod!?! Stop whining work together people!

    Kosmopolit, with the last patch, it seems that there is no MAF issue (see the download page).

    Thank you Wilson.
