Hey Jodet, did I get you right, the problems occured before installing H.T.O.P. and FXAA? So this seems to be caused by the game itself ? I haven't encountered similar problems. Maybe try to use the FXAA tool and it's sharpening options to get rid of this strange bug. Regards, Horus_TOP I'm wonderi...

Well, this is frustrating. I finally got the textures download and the FXAA tool. But before I've used them I installed the games (steam version) and started them to see how they looked. I've got really blurry fonts. I'm running 1920x1080, tried both 16 and 32 bit. I'm using a Radeon HD 6970 with cu...

Hey Jodet, here is the link to download the H.T.O.P. http://www.file-upload.net/download-4230184/H.T.O.P._-0.1.zip.html just hit the small download button with the green arrow and you should be fine :) I am sorry for the problems, but I don't own a private server and I have to use this file-sharing...

How can I get this file?

This is a great idea and I'd love to install it. I've hit about 10 different 'download' links. NONE OF THESE LINKS CONTAIN THE H.T.O.P._-0.1.ZIP FILE. They are all for 'video programs' or 'download managers' or some other program that someone wants me to install for whatever reason. It's a shame thi...

Digital distribution is a PITA

That's it, I'm buying a PS3. PC Gaming has a death wish. Starforce, Securom, Steam, Impulse. What a PITA. The games just aren't good enough to justify all this nonsense.

I don't support DRM with my gaming dollars

It could also just be that someone else uses the same username as you, and thought they had used it for Steam as well, and attempted to login. I've done that before with mine, when I didn't recall if I had used it there or not (or what variation I had used). Chances are it's either innocent or a ph...

Steam password email

I just got an email from Steam saying someone is trying to change my password there. Well, it's sure not me. How can someone have my userid/email address and even try to change my password? Or is there some screw-up at Steam and they are receiving a valid request from someone else and then sending M...

here's the save

In 10 minutes or so the last townhouse goes to luxury.

Then you get the 'you won' screen. Click on proceed.

[If you're having a similar problem, or have some insight into it, please redirect your response to one of the other threads on the issue Jodet is experiencing.] This was a DIFFERENT crash. If I put the savegame up would you be interested in taking a look at it? What is the savegame format for this...

Someone said to turn off autosaves, but that didn't prevent me from crashing when I won a scenario and clicked 'proceed'.

Crash, crash, crash, crash

I just spent four hours or so finishing Nekhen, you know the one where you sit around for half an hour waiting for that last townhouse to go from 'Nice' to 'Luxury'.

I got the 'you won' screen, clicked on 'proceed' and CTD.

Yes, I have autosaves off.

THIS BLOWS.

I started the 2nd tutorial and did lots of save, crashed just before building the hospital (this has happened 3-4 times). Then I started game again, loaded save and was able to finish the tutorial. ??? Here's the save. Not so fast - can't find it. Children of the Nile\data\saved games, right?

Don't know. I'll try and find some time tonight to crash and I'll do a manual save every 3-4 minutes. Then I'll load that save game and see if it crashes on the same spot. I kinda think it will from my earlier crashes, but let's find out for sure.

I have not had any non-TM game crash on me in about five years. Crash bugs are pretty much a thing of the past. Well, for most companies.

I have never had a problem with anti-aliasing, which is what, ten year old technology?

And removing it did NOT fix the problem.

- Find the game executable (in the folder where you installed the game for the patch version, or in the Steam directory\steamapps\common\children of the nile for the Steam version). - Right-click on it and select "Properties". - Go to the Compatibility tab. - Check the box labelled "Run this progra...

I know I'm not the only person getting them.

Is TM working on a patch?

Just tried your fix, it's still crashing. Only now before it crashes it looks crummy.

But if you use application settings you loose all anisotropic filtering and anti aliasing. That would not be good.
