Re: screen resolution

I had problems clicking on things at highest resolution settings too. I would have find a 'hot spot' to click on somewhere near the thing I wanted to click on to get it to work if at all. I don't have that problem at the 1440 x 900 setting.

Re: screen resolution

It has been a problem. Some games that were released before widescreen monitors became common have had problems with higher resolution settings. I had problem opening CotN myself last week. It never gave me a problem before and the settings I've been using remained unchanged. The game started crashi...

Re: campaigns ?????????????

I think another reason you might not be seeing those downloaded campaign files is that they're perhaps not Alexandria-compatible. I think it hides scenarios and campaigns made in the earlier version, but I don't recall. Keith might remember better than I do. As I recall, only the older version of t...

Re: @!*#@! *@!!!!!!!

I guess you could somehow add a notice in the historical story of the menu that tells the user to turn popups back on if they want guidance through the tutorial. It will be up to the player to read through the instructions before playing in that case and no on to blame but himself if he doesn't.

Re: campaigns ?????????????

The Alexandria extension to the game only sold via STEAM. When Installed it moved all the game files used by the now STEAM version of the game to a new subfolder for Children of the Nile created in a folder named Steam. You have to put any files you want to use in the Alexandria version of CotN into...

So I, and any other player can turn that off? Oh that is great news, thank you so much Keith, I'll get right on that. But, I wonder, will that turn off ALL 'significant' messages? Including the scenario specific? I'll have to test that right now. EDIT: Tested, and it works like a charm! You are a s...

Re: @!*#@! *@!!!!!!!

There should be a box in one the Settings menus at the games main page when you start up that allows you to turn off popup messages. If the box is checked the messages are turned off. I the box is not checked the messages are on. You can also carefully open the CotN.ini file created by the game with...

It should not be a problem. As you noted most people should have or have upgraded to this version long ago.

Re: Plaza collection

Nice. You may want to try and make partial grass or flower tiles, so the edges do not give the appearance of being straight 90 degrees and give a more natural meandering or rounded edge look.

Re: very big city and tiresome nobles

Some times the complaint displayed is not the actual problem. They may complain about not being able to hunt, even though there are plenty of game, but the complaint may mean that their desire to hunt is being overridden by some other task that they are attempting to carryout and it is taking a long...

Re: Buying this, will it work with my box?

Herodotus covered it pretty well. Alexandria will install with the original boxed version of the game. It actually forces a download of the streaming version from STEAM and creates a new set of folders for the streaming version in which to install. The boxed version files remain on the hard drive an...

Re: Sabah No tombs at immortality

I'll pass it along.

However, my personal opinion is they'll probably not be fixing it. Sabath was the beta test before the game went public. The developers left it running warts-and-all for those that cared to play on after Theoris was ready.
