Well, I kind of got caught up with work again, I do have a very basic local map done (still needs lots of cleaning and texturizing) and a couple of world maps that I'm toying with (still haven't decided which style I like best, but am probably going to go with the sat image one). I am currently out ...

Attached is a satellite imagery map of the greater Egypt area already in DDS format and named appropriate for the game if you are interested. Not sure if it covers all of the area you need though, or at the scale you want.

You can actually do it without the 1024x1024 size and just use any size, but that can cause some issues depending on which version of the DDS plugin that you have, so it is usually just safer to use the 1024x1024 "standard" size.

First thing that you want to do is to take the world level map that you want to use, and make it into a 1024x1024 image using the "Canvas Size" option under the Image Menu. Position your actual graphics centered at the top (select the top middle box in the "anchor" section) leaving the rest transpar...

Also, the quote from me that you included there was from a post referring purely to the 6200 and 6600 cards, as far as I know nothing in that post is applicable to any other models.

Unknown...I'm still working out what all is going to be included in the scenario, and trying to figure out just how much of the local map I can get to fit into a single CotN map...I'll definitely post more information on here as I get pieces of it done however.

Agreed wholeheartedly...the usersets section was probably my second most often checked area of the entire site (the first being the custom scenarios section ;) ).

Oh definitely, if the newer drivers work, by all means use them. I'm currently using the 91.47 drivers on my main machine, and they work like a charm. It was just suggested as a fix for those people that are having the above mentioned video playback issue with those two particular cards ;) .

Yes, but they don't host files as large as the Diospolis campaign...although thanks for reminding me, I should update the link over there to the new download location :P .

Hmm...never seen any overheating issues, and I'm running an overclocked 6200 AGP on my second computer...although it's also got very good case cooling as well as living in an air conditioned room - so you may be right for people a bit less paranoid about proper cooling than I am :P . I do know that ...

Actually, for the 6600 and the 6200, AGP versions, the 84.21 drivers are far more stable than any of the 9x.xx series. The issue appears to be in the coding for video playback support, however, so it may not effect gameplay for CotN (except the opening video sequence...). Symptoms range from extreme...

I'm not sure about the Demo (never tried it) but in the retail version, the advisors screens show you most if not all of the information you are looking for. On the "Labor" advisor's screen, you can see how many of which types of workers are needed for each section of infrastructure (water, prefects...

I'll give these a shot, mixed in between playing through Karter's "campaign" series as well as working on Deir el-Medina. I, like you, enjoy longer scenarios with large prestige goals, so hopefully I'll get you some win screens (or at least one...) sometime within the next week or so. And I'll start...

I too dislike the road/path interface...one reason I tend to avoid paths altogether these days. It's a shame too, because I really do like the appearance of the paths themselves - especially along the shore areas. The problem with doing a good transition is that there is no specific tile for a road/...
