Great mod! Possible bug: The Sixteen Kingdoms and Northern Dynasties army lists seem to be listing the same (protected) Tribal Spearmen twice.

Yes, and the Chinese (Sui) 582-617AD list. Perhaps the second entry should be skirmishers instead?

This is mostly likely to be due to your antivirus program not allowing it to be unpacked. Try altering your antivirus settings.

It looks great. I'll try it out soon.

Jomni, how did you create the new 3D model files (.S4F format) and textures (.DDS format)?

If I understand correctly, the models are just clones of existing models. All of Jayson's magic has been done with the textures only.

Yup all are default objects, just re-textured.

Argh, looks like this mod (multiplayer at least) is incompatible with the latest FoG2 update. Right in the middle of a multiplayer game too. Anyone else having issues? Shame, I loved this mod.

I think jomni is working on an update. He was one of the Age of Belisarius beta testers, so should be well aware of any script incompatibilities.

I have tested Silk Road v1.2 SP and MP with the new patch and it produced no errors.

What error did you have?

Note that the current version Rise of AI Global mod is incompatible with v1.3.9 and you need to turn it off. Though I would not expect that to affect MP games, but you can never be sure.

Perhaps it's a mid game thing? This is the error I get, and then keep getting if I press 'Yes'

Hmm, it should not be a mid-game thing. This suggests that the Mod has a variant CloseCombatTools.Bsf file. If I recall correctly the original version of the mod did have this, but the current version (1.2), which predates the update by a couple of months, does not.

So I suspect your game was set up using an old version of the mod. I am afraid there is no cure for this.

The current version of the mod is v1.2, which does not contain that modded script. Potential incompatibilities with game updates was the main reason for redesigning the mod not to require a custom version of that file.

If you download the current mod v1.2 you will not be able to continue the existing game, but will be able to play new ones.

Same problem here. So, alter the antivirus settings how? By how I mean what parameters need to be adjusted?
Thanks

I can't give specific details as it will depend on your particular antivirus program, but the general idea would be to select more relaxed settings.
