Re: Change User Content Directory

You can also change the folder for the game in the following way: If the user places a REDIRECT.TXT file in their local folder (e.g. Documents/My Games/<game>) which contains the line FOLDER <fullpath> Then the game will treat the provided folder as the user folder for this game. Hope that helps. Ch...

Re: [Bug report] Disk write error when installing Steam version

It sounds like a Steam client issue really - you might get more insight in the Steam Tech Support forums (that is - the forums for Steam Tech Support, rather than the Steam forum for the game).

Re: monitor

Unlikely. Try disabling the Steam overlay to see if that helps. You should also check the resolution you are running in to ensure it is appropriate.

Re: i made a map but it didnt save and i want to get into scenario design

You'll need to be more specific. Did you create a campaign folder and then save the map while in the editor? Do savegames save correctly on your machine?

The campaign folder is Documents/My Games/BA2/CAMPAIGNS (for single player).

Re: Spartan & Gates of Troy Problem on Windows 10

That is certainly odd - we've not heard of anything like that up to now. The game should work pretty much fine in W10, as it doesn't use any legacy interfaces. I guess it could be a driver issue - one thing you could try is disabling sound (I think you would add NOSOUND 1 to the user.txt file). Chee...

Re: Does it work on Windows 7

Obligatory: Windows 7 is no longer secure nor supported - you should upgrade to Windows 10 (it's free). We can't support Windows 7 installs.

Re: Fatal Application Exit

I don't think it is the fault of a script, likely just corrupted data either going up or coming down. I will investigate at our end.

Re: Fatal Application Exit

Did the crash re-occur when you retried to load the same game? If not then I think it is likely a data transfer error from the server. If so I will raise the issue with the server team, assuming you are on a stable and reliable connection?

Re: 18th Century Age of Reason Expanded

So an optimisation which went in a long time back did indeed break mesh animations (partly because they were at the time no longer supported, but then I added them back in to try and be helpful, but no good deed etc :) ). I have fixed it in the game EXE and so it should show up at some point in the ...

No problem reusing sound files. I will take a look at the crash and see what might be going on.

I will take a look. Where is the best place to download it from, and can you give me a specific battle to look at (or should I just drop the units into the editor)?

Re: Fatal Application Exit

This was in a MP game? Can you show more of the error log prior to the crash report please. It looks like it should be showing a script parsing error.

Re: 18th Century Age of Reason Expanded

FoG2 has never (to my knowledge) used S3F files - they were deprecated a long while back. It's likely the code still loads them, but I wouldn't rely on it saving them out again correctly.

I'm not entirely clear what the issue is here, can someone reclarify it.

Re: Pb with saving and loading games

Do you have rights to rename the Documents/My Games/FieldOfGlory2 folder? If not then no amount of reinstalling will work. The key problem is that somehow the permissions on that folder have been messed up - if you cannot rename it then the game cannot correctly access it. Are you able to login as A...

Re: Kusrk expansion not recognised

Where did you purchase the game and where the expansion? The Kursk campaign should be available on the campaign screen, you may need to scroll the list to see it.

Re: A couple of Warhammer scenarios / Zhevedka campaign

Yes. Use a more reputable upload site. That one tries to install browser plugins and all kinds of unpleasantness. I assume no malice on your part, but that kind of stuff isn't going to be left around for the unsuspecting :)

Re: Fatal Application Exit

So you are talking about a custom campaign in the ingame download list? Ah - makes more sense! I think it would be better to release a new version and add it to the list, there isn't really a system for patching campaigns. That said, if it is single player then we can easily remove the old version. ...
