Re: Is this forum about to close??

Hi Keith. I didn't see your answer, because I hadn't checked the 'notify'... Thank you for answering. I had no idea it had been disabled for so long. This is such a shame. New players are still buying this game, but have no way of asking questions or anything. I couldn't understand why people didn't...

Is this forum about to close??

Are there administrators here? Or somebody, anybody, who knows what's going on in this forum? I am told that it is no longer possible to register to these forums. Apparently hasn't been for a while. Is that true? If so, does this mean the forum as such is about to shut down? And if not, why are peop...

New players can't register???????

So, I had a couple of questions on a scenario post on heavengames, and I told the player to go here for general info and advice, to which I was told he couldn't register here. I though it weird, but then thought it must be a 'one of'.... Now I find this: http://caesar3.heavengames.com/cgi-bin/caefor...

List of available Scenarios

Hi all, I got increasingly frustrated with trying to find scenarios, trying to find the posts that goes with a scenario, etc. and I thought any new players might have an even worse time of finding things. So, I made a list of them all, that is to say, every scenario that is either in the game pack, ...

Re: CotN keeps crashing NOT solved

So I finished the scenario, tested several times, all fine. Then I went ahead and moved the infamous forts to 390-390 (didn't want to push my luck), and that was fine. Then tested again and again, all fine. It is now uploaded. So far so good. With that off my desk, I will do some more searching and ...

Keith, I'm in editor, and looking to trigger a search (as a check)... and I don't think there is any way of doing this, but I wanted to ask around, just in case I did miss something.

Objects and units

I have a problem... I would like to be able to check if there are barracks/commander's quarters of a certain kind on the map. As in, are there city guard barracks, or army commander's quarters for example. This is not a new problem for me, I've had that situation before, and I sidestepped it by sett...

Re: CotN keeps crashing NOT solved

Hi RjG, I may not have been clear on this (oh so many posts), but the installation problem was only on my PC, and that was a clear user-error. In the panic, I forgot that I did not have DirectX 9.0c on my PC any longer. And it installed fine too, just wouldn't run, obviously. Yes, I have an account ...

Hi RjG, Now, this is interesting. 3)comparison... all the same until the Size on Disk, mine is different: 616 MB (646.139.904 bytes) And, I do not have the 'this file came from another computer..', nor do I have a checkbox. Might that be because you downloaded it directly, and the one I have is copi...

Re: CotN keeps crashing NOT solved

HI RjG, Thanks a lot for testing. I think you'll like the standalone Gog version :) Well, that settles it then, nothing wrong with that software. Whatever it is is localized to me. (What did I ever do??) Tja, memory chip bad, does not answer the question of the other PC's though. I know for sure, th...

Re: CotN keeps crashing NOT solved

Meanwhile, I created the full world level, only with the 2 sites that are supposed to sit in 'the hole' placed way out in the desert. That all works fine. Imported that world level into a finished map (landscaped). This file is then going to Atatnall, who will move the 2 sites to their rightful posi...

Re: CotN keeps crashing NOT solved

RjG,
btw, Gog has Galaxy, which I assume is similar to Steam, but games (at least CotN) are available as 'standalone', offline download it's called. That's what I got.

Re: CotN keeps crashing NOT solved

If this was the first time I installed it, I could understand (and I wouldn't already be hooked, so would just chuck it)... But it ran for over 3 years! Until it didn't. What's new? If Windows 10 will 'run an old game installed already' but 'not accept a new install', well in that case I should've b...

Re: CotN keeps crashing NOT solved

I've even thought of wiping my E drive (I have a complete copy on an extern drive), it would take a while but all the same.
But, what ever is on that drive, would NOT be on any of the other PCs, so what's the use of that?

Re: CotN keeps crashing NOT solved

I would happily buy it again, if any other version was available, and try to install from a box version disk or something. But only ones available are from Gog and Steam, and I tried those.

Re: CotN keeps crashing NOT solved

Hi RjG, I would love nothing better than have someone test an install of Gog version on a computer on Win 10 updated. Unfortunately I don't know of any that could care less if they had CotN or not, and had a computer for it. Plus, that person would need to know a bit about CotN to run a test on it, ...
