MP games using Silk Road 1.5 are borked. :/
There is, however, a workaround to allow them to be completed:

The Silk Road mod has now be updated to v1.7, and this can be downloaded in game.

This update does not add new lists, but brings it in line with v1.5.12 of FOG2 by adjusting the points costs etc.

WARNING: Do not delete v1.6 from your system until you have completed any on-going games. You can have both versions on your system at the same time without any problems. Obviously, new games should be started with v1.7

Also note that there is currently an issue with the MP lobby tooltip not showing the correct allies for Silk Road games. The actual game will use the allies set up in the challenge, but the lobby tooltip shows the wrong list. We are working on a fix for this.

It won’t be updated until next year. The digital league will be using 1.7 from Oct - Dec. The current version still works right? It worked during the beta.

Hi Jomni,

To be honest, I don't see the urgency in updating the Silk Road to 1.5.18. The only difference would be the minor changes to some of the vanilla armies:

• Army Lists:
---o Anglo-Danish army list side name changed to Anglo-Danish (instead of Anglo-Saxon).
---o Later Breton list divided into 580-931 and 936-1049 lists. After the destruction of the Breton Kingdom by the Vikings circa 931 AD, the newly formed Duchy of Brittany assimilated to the Norman military system.
---o Rejigged Polish 966-1057 AD list. Added unarmoured cavalry units, pre-dismounted armoured and unarmoured cavalry units, and replaced slingers with javelinmen.
• Allies:
---o Byzantine 963-987 AD allies added to Arab (North Africa) 789-999 AD list.
---o Arab (North Africa) 789-999 AD allies added to Byzantine 963-987 AD list.
---o Viking (Ireland) 900-1049 AD allies added to Scots 851-1051 AD list.
---o Scots 851-1051 AD allies added to Viking (Ireland) 900-1049 list.

None of that affects the Chinese armies, and would only apply to players fighting "fantasy" battles between those western armies and Chinese.

All the other changes would automatically apply to the Silk Road anyway.

Yup. I’m aware of those minor changes to stock armies.
And are not possible adversaries of the Chinese.

Any chans of getting a download link I can use outside of the game (like with the TT-mod and the patches)? I have no internet at home and don't want to bring my computer to the library or local pub to download v1.7 of the mod.
