Thread: Bug Fixes for SS6.4- DO NOT POST ANY BUGS IN HERE

    Default Bug Fixes for SS6.4- DO NOT POST ANY BUGS IN HERE

    ============= IMPORTANT =========================

    MELOOO182 HAS PRODUCED A COMPILATION OF THE ss6.4 BUG FIXES HERE :

    http://www.twcenter.net/forums/showt...1#post13723098

    Current version is V1.27

    ==================================================================



    I notice there isn't a thread for fixes to SS6.4.

    These wouldn't be so much workarounds but re-writing of code or replacing defective files that cause CTDs.

    Note this wouldn't be for installation problems as SS6.4 should install properly if you follow the instructions.

    Equally it's not for fixing features that are missing or you don't like.

    And finally it's not fixing any sub-mods you may use - questions relating to them belong in those sub-mod's threads.

    So this is for reporting reliable fixes that actually work, with the aim of producing a compilation that will be a SS6.4 vanilla Hotfix file. (Actually that can't work - there is no vanilla SS6.4 - only a variety of flavours. The hotfix will try and cover only those things that are common to all versions, or have clearly labelled alternatives.)

    ------------------------------------------------------
    I'll post the location for the latest version of ReallyBadAI here, as it is an executable file and it has various options you'll need to choose. In short it can't be added to a single hotfix file.

    http://www.twcenter.net/forums/downloads.php?do=file&id=3350

    The RBAI installer has a lot more stuff not included in the compilation true, but those are not for Stainless Steel, everything SS related is already in the bugfix compilation, which are the RBAI update to 5.7, Hardcore RBAI option submod and RBAI emergency CTD fix "submod".

    Default Re: Bug Fixes for SS6.4 ?

    ##IF YOU HAVE THE BUGFIX COMPILATION, YOU DON'T NEED ANY OF THESE##
    chances are some of these fixes are outdated

    This is good idea, there are a bunch of fixes for minor and major bugs all scattered in the sub forum, i started doing a compilation of links for such fixes and so far i've gathered these.

    Major Bugs/CTD fixes:
    Hospitaler Knights CTD fix
    Italian Men at Arms CTD fix
    Really Bad AI (Fixes CTD in Battles with reinforcements and other stuff)
    FIX for a semi random CTD caused by some Teutonic Order scripted siege around turn 130.
    CTD fix for mongols and timurids scripted sieges DIY

    Minor Bugs fixes:
    Archers and Woodsman Guild Fix
    Errors on names and bloodline descriptions fix
    Stables and Tourney building HorseBreeder Guild chances fix (export_descr_guilds.txt)
    notes on horsebreeder guild fix
    The bug was that Stables and Tourney building increased chances for "Swordsmith Guild" and "Woodsman Guilds(Archery)" instead of Horse Breeders Guild.
    Took the liberty of leaving Swordsmith Guilds chance increase for tourney buildings, whether it was part the of bug or not as it makes sense for tourneys and jousting to favor swordsmanshipt to some degree in a castle right?.

    Mongol Priest named emt_Mongols_Priest_2 fix REVISED AGAIN

    -Mongol Priest named emt_Mongols_Priest_2 (various files)
    Finaly found the real nature of this bug, it seems the trait is needed so mongol priests have UI title of priest instead of imam
    so the fix is for the displayed hovering name and the missing trait localized strings, so the fix is the following:

    Repeat this same process for
    "NE Ballista" and "NE Catapult"


    * The witch traits fix is not compatible with weaker heretics submod as it references to the bugged traits for doing changes with the SMM, its easy enought to fix the submod to work again though, just apply the bug fixes to the submod txt file and done.

    Also is never enough to mention that all changes made to campaign_script.txt are NOT savegame compatible.

    Default Re: Bug Fixes for SS6.4 ?

    Thanks for the fixes Melooo - any further fixes much appreciated.

    Hmm the Teutonic Knights workaround really needs a proper fix. I've not looked at the campaign script but I suspect that's where the problem is. I thought we had solved all those bugs a long time ago

    Once we have gathered the existing fixes we might be able to sort out some of the other problems.

    (I've been away from modding a for a couple of years so it'll take me a while to remember how to do things )

    As far as I can see the Teutonic Order problem is caused by spawning three armies at the same location on the same turn. I'll need to check the map to look for better locations.

    Default Re: Bug Fixes for SS6.4 ?

    updated 2nd post with some DIY fixes for minor bugs

  5. #5

    Default Re: Bug Fixes for SS6.4 ?

    Melooo - excellent work on finding all these little bugs as well as the big ones

    The only problrm I found with wrapping them all up in one bug fix is that the RBAI fix is an exe file.
    I've not had time to unpack it yet.

    And the archers fix needs a RR enabled and a disabled version.

  6. #6

    Default Re: Bug Fixes for SS6.4 ?

    Already made all these fixes in my copy of the mod, including fixes for Disabled RR submod etc, since I did the fixes to the files in "data/campaign/backup-subs-early-etc" when the SMM is launched all fixes are kept and not overwritten and still retains original SS6.4 customizability which is something i love of this mod.

    If a downloadable fixes compilation patch is to be made, i think it should include RBAI update as part of it, leaving the "Hardcore RBAI" and "Battle CTD fix" as submods, included in the same download of course.

  7. #7

    Default Re: Bug Fixes for SS6.4 ?

    OK Meloo - if it works best that way that's fine

  8. #8

    Default Re: Bug Fixes for SS6.4 ?

    soz for double post but it's 2 weeks since the last one

    The crash when a faction is destroyed I suspect is related to the FactionKiller trait, or something similar that has a trigger that fires when a faction is destroyed.

    Only way to test that is to remove everything related to it in the character traits file and any other file.

    (Editing traits needs careful handling, but with a little trial and error and a trip to mod workshop, you can do it.)

  9. #9

    Default Re: Bug Fixes for SS6.4 ?

    Ok i'll look into it, havent had that CTD so far though.

    Also any idea how to solve Faction Leader Death event spam?
    I will try adding a min settlement requirement like in the merchant spam fix, but if there is a better way let me know.

  10. #10

    INSTALLATION

    First of all is recommendable that you have a clean version of SS6.4, that means no submods.

    1- Deactivate any submod with the SS_setup.exe

    2- Extract the content of "BugFix_Compilation_vX.7z" to "...\Medieval II Total War\mods"

    3- When windows asks you if you want to overwrite existing files and folders, accept to overwrite everything.

    4- Before launching the game you must run the SS_setup.exe with no submod selected
    (just the mandatory AI option of course) this will finalize the bugfix setup.

    5- Now you can run the SS_setup.exe again, activate any submod you want and play as normal

    6- If you have any problem with sounds, run the SS_events_dat_idx_reset.bat located at mod main folder (.../mods/SS6.3)

    For those who are updating an older version of the bugfix compilation to v1.27, you must run the CLEAN_OLD_BUGFIX.bat located in /SS6.3/ folder
    *G5 Settlement Fixes All in 1 Instructions
    *G5 Settlement Tweaks All in 1 instructions:
    - Download "G5_Settlement_Tweaks.7z" and place it in "...\Medieval II Total War\mods"
    - You need 7zip installed
    - Right Click on "G5_Settlement_Tweaks.7z" -> 7zip -> Extract Here
    - This will automatically extract the content to SS6.3 folder
    - When Windows ask if you wish to overwrite, accept
    - Play

    If you prefer original G5 files with installer here they are:
    G5 Settlement Fixes Original Mirror (this installer will place settlement fixes to the M2 vanilla data directory)
    SS specific Settlement Fixes
    Original Mirror
    Thanks, Credits and Permissions

    Each Bugfix has been credited Properly
    Thanks to the many DIY bugfixes posted in twcenter SS forum
    specially G5, newt, bane, MWY, Baraban, valky, Gorrrrrn, Aymar and gsthoed

    About Permissions, feel free to use in whatever you want as long as proper credit is given to each of the contributors.
    Additional Notes

    Feel free to make more mirrors of the Bugfix compilation

    Also is never enough to mention that all changes made to campaign_script.txt are NOT savegame compatible.

    Some fixes might require that you delete the map file to take effect
    The map.rwm file is located at following location
    "...Medieval II Total War\mods\SS6.3\data\world\maps\base\"

    This probably won't work with Meneth's Submod Compilation.
    Working on a compatible version of MSC

    The RBAI installer has a lot more stuff not included in the compilation true, but those are not for Stainless Steel, everything SS related is already in the bugfix compilation, which are the RBAI update to 5.7, Hardcore RBAI option submod and RBAI emergency CTD fix "submod".
