    Icon4 [RELEASE] Divide et Impera 1.2.7 Public Beta (Updated Feb 22)



    Divide et Impera 1.2.7 Public Beta


    Information
    After many months of work we are happy to announce our latest public beta is ready for play. If you are interested in trying it out, please feel free to download it from the link below. Many new features and changes are in this update that are detailed in the notes. Although this update is stable and ready for play, we felt a wider test audience would benefit the mod due to the various types of changes included. There are also more changes and some future work to be added as we go through the beta. We appreciate the support!

    Save Game & Submods Warning
    - Due to some building and subculture changes, there may be blank (unusable) building spots in some save games. This will be especially noticeable with Nervii temples and some emergent factions. For the most part this won't affect most saves.
    - Some submods may not be compatible and may cause issues with this update. Please be aware that many will have to be updated before they are fully compatible with these changes.

    Thank you for keeping on improve this wonderful mod!!
    in "Major Changes" there is this:- Remade Empire Divided startpos to hopefully fix the crash issues associated with Palmyra and some other factions (new campaign only).
    What does it mean? We can play ED with DEI ???? Is it a dream?!

    ED had a nasty crash bug going on that I hope is now fixed. It may not be, because its one from vanilla that they fixed internally and I am not 100% sure how they did it. My answer was to remake the startpos from scratch using their vanilla kit files as a base in hopes that would remedy the situation.

    Started a Media campaign, the start pos has empty provinces with lvl 1 buildings, and nothing else. Working as intended?

    I can't start the game for some reason after putting in the fix pack, the game loads to the starting screen but doesn't react to any keyboard or mouse commands
    1180, an unprecedented period of peace and prosperity in East Asia, it's technology and wealth is the envy of the world. But soon conflict will engulf the entire region with great consequences and lasting effects for centuries to come, not just for this region, but the entire known world, when one man, one people, unites.....

    Read through the fix log but can't find if the missing Auxilla units in Noricum has been fixed as they are all missing in my Augustus campaign.

    Not yet and it won't affect saves when I do fix it. I have to add the normal auxilia tag to the regions in the startpos, they forgot to add them in vanilla.

    Unfortunately, the Palmyra crash is not fixed in the current beta pack as I had hoped. However, I believe I have finally tracked down the issue and it will be fixed in the next beta update...I hope

    Will the hardcore and softcore submods be updated for 1.2.7? I don't think they are working for it at the moment.

    Default Re: [RELEASE] Divide et Impera 1.2.7 Public Beta

    Once this is a full release, submods will be updated.

    They should work, they just need to load above this one.
