Re: Roman Mod for Spartan Gates of Troy

I can't help you with converting the scenarios of those earlier games but you will find a south Italy scenario that I have done in the Downloadable Spartan map scenarios thread.

Re: Downloadable Spartan map scenarios

For my third scenario I have taken a section of the map from the Grand campaign which ships with the original game. It focuses on Makedon and Chalkide. Download from here: http://kart-hadasht.co.uk/game/spartan/makchal.php I can see that people are downloading the scenarios but I have no idea if peo...

Re: Downloadable Spartan map scenarios

I have added another scenario with south Italy and Sicily. Unlike the scenarios with the game, you have the chance to play Romans.

Thanks very much for the reply.

Maybe someone who is currently playing Gates of Troy will post a reply in the next few months. I'll keep checking.

Re: Diferences between Spartan & Gates of Troy

From memory, some key changes were ability to zoom the main map, and the ability to create vassal states. But it was a long time ago :) Cheers Pip Thanks, much appreciated. I've just played a scenario in which I built the League HQ expecting to get the ability to create vassal states but it merely ...

Diferences between Spartan & Gates of Troy

I have Spartan but am curious to know how Gates of Troy differs apart from the extra scenarios.

Re: Gates of Troy how to make bigger armies

You research silver which allows you to build depots and a depot in the city means all units built will be larger as will the garrison be.

If I recall correctly to build training centers you need iron research. This improves the skill of new units built in the city.

Downloadable Spartan map scenarios

I have done a map scenario which is downloadable from here: http://kart-hadasht.co.uk/game/spartan/spartanisthmus.php It covers an area covered by the scenarios that come with the game but as it is twice the scale it incudes many cities that were too small to be included in the original game. Has an...

Re: languages of Gates of Troy

I have tried out translating bits of the localisation file into Ancient Greek and it seems to work okay so it would probably work with Cyrillic. Looking at the lang.str file with a hex editor it seems that strings are stored in 16 bit which suggests that Japanese wouldn't work as AFAIK 16 bit can't ...

Re: Strategy Games but not realtime.

Brøderbund The Ancient Art of War was technically a RTS but played much more like a turn based strategy game. You had a few units so it was never a mouse race. The time penalized dithering not how fast you could click on a mouse.

Re: "Total War is the Most Realistic Strategy Game"

Spartan leaves the Total War family in the shade IMO. They both share the mix of turn based strategy and realtime battles but the basic concept of Spartan (and the rest of that family) is far superior. The two hour battles of Total War is not just a problem of playability. Ancient commanders were no...

Re: languages of Gates of Troy

Also Spartan is only English? Only English is part of the Spartan release. However it would be possible to translate the Localisation.txt file into your language of choice. You would then have to run "Convert main text file.exe" which is found in the mod pack so that your translation is converted i...

Re: Spartan Map Editor importing map stencil

I'm really sorry but I don't remember how it works. There was a way to import a background image and use it instead of the tile set but all i can think of is that the map file is in the wrong format or the wrong location to be read in. I'm sorry I cant be more help but to try and work this out woul...

I have also run the map editor under windows 2000. Again it works fine (once the colors are reduced to 16 bit) but when I press "i".

Xenophon was especially scathing about Spartan cavalry so if game doesn't allow quality cavalry that's pretty realistic.

Spartan Map Editor importing map stencil

I have got the basic map editor working but I can't work out how to import a map stencil. There is no menu option for this (that I can see) and when I pres "i" (which is what the manual says) nothing happens. I am running it under Windows 7.

Thanks in advance for any pointers.
