    Sticky: Gig's eternal pearls of serene wisdom

    .

    The pandemic has truly changed a lot in my life.
    Take my apartment: it doesn't look like a dump any longer but rather like a shipping warehouse.
  2. Re: 3 Turns per year + 0.333 Timescale not adding up

    The issue is with the starting season if memory serves. It needs to be winter, in the descr_strat setting as well as a the script. At least that's how the 12tpy script works.
  3. Re: Have Steam dumbed down the Alexander exe file?

    debugged - make a copy of the present descr_regions so you can compare (Notepad++ has a function for that) once you manage to save with the tool.

    no more trading resources in descr_strat and still...

    Re: When to use wait and campaign_wait

    If in doubt use wait :tongue:

    Especially when a command depends on the previous command to have been fully executed. Afaik 'campaign_wait' delays any pending actions on the map while the script...
  5. Issues with EBII's steam launcher - how to resolve.

    It has been observed that there are a small number of issues with the Steam launcher provided by the mod. The option 'stop movies' does not work nor do the date and seasons display above the min map....
  6. Re: Have Steam dumbed down the Alexander exe file?

    Bare Geomod is the game's default campaign set up in kingdoms mode (boiling oil and other stuff) as a mod folder with numerous fixes. Maxing out anything isn't really going to solve your issue.

  8. Re: Have Steam dumbed down the Alexander exe file?

    Two ways to convert TXT to STRING.BIN:
    1. run the mod with the changed TXT file up to campaign map (not all files convert already at mod splash screen) and exit
    2. Use the BinEditor - first...
  9. Re: Have Steam dumbed down the Alexander exe file?

    String.Bin files are the files that are in the data\text forum which the game reads from. They are generated from their counterpart TXT files. To get the TXT version you can work with the BinEditor...

  11. Re: Have Steam dumbed down the Alexander exe file?

    No, it doesn't have to be first. I am trying to recall why I insisted on the placement, but I think it was simply to avoid having it placed below the slave faction. But in the end the descr_strat...

    Considering that they still have father christmas and the easter bunny it may take a while longer before pagan rituals are abandoned.

  14. Re: Have Steam dumbed down the Alexander exe file?

    Unsatisfactory - the traits were not able to completely eliminate movements. There was also a chance of interaction as the faction wasn't frozen.

    Rename factions - correct, that's expanded.txt,...

  17. Re: My computer crashing when play "Total War"

    If the problem only happens after playing the game for a while then it could be a memory (RAM) issue. The game has a tendency to memory leaks so faulty memory could accelerate the issue.

  19. Re: 2.35a - steam launcher not working properly(no borderless, launcher options create error)

    Update:

    The (steam) launcher is outdated, a leftover from the time when the executable files were merged in Steam and no-one had worked out a reliable solution yet. And the way it starts the mod...
  20. Re: Have Steam dumbed down the Alexander exe file?

    Sadly (or rather understandably) there are always apps that simply refuse the best efforts of programmers to be elevated to new tech levels. That said: running the tool in compatibilities' '640*480...

    Damn, I was hoping that would address the text issue. That's pretty much the end of my tech expertise where this is concerned.

    That clears things up. If you script the destruction of the final level at a later stage then the whole building tree starts fresh so no further action is required. I guess I was overthinking that a...

  28. Re: Have Steam dumbed down the Alexander exe file?

    The relative size of the elements seems to be fine (the tabs got stretched because of the font size), it's the font that's oversized.

  33. Re: Have Steam dumbed down the Alexander exe file?

    You can't scale Geomod itself afaik, to give you an idea of the size of the tool I have taken a screenshot with your post as back ground. You can however easily zoom (move cursor into window, use...
