Music in PON

Does anyone remember how music works in PON? I'd like to add an instrumental version of Va Pensiero from Verdi's Nabucco to the Italian music, but am not sure what coding I should use. There seem to be three (possibly four) codes to write after the country name (WAR, PCE, ALL, and CMN if it isn't a ...

Problems in Minnesota

It has been pointed out in the Steam threads that there is a problem with Minnesota. The game map has Minneapolis on the east bank of the Mississippi, and St. Paul on the west side. I have been to both cities, and can personally confirm that when you are in St. Paul facing northwest, you see the riv...

Re: ECW 1.03 Public Beta

You are not in the majority. The colorful maps in the other games are unfortunate and the one for ECW is quite tasteful. The antique map style always looks better than modern glitz, and the flashy modern look really isn't appropriate in the older periods. What you are talking about is a mod, not an ...

Re: Hollowfaith's Music Mod

If you use a proper sound editor you won't have any problems. I use Goldwave, but there are plenty of others. The random selection program that these games use is very weak, and on several occasions I've attempted to overcome this by building all of the music selections into one massive file. I've a...

Re: Graphics issues

Just to be clear, I think the overall appearence of the map is very tasteful and quite attractive. I particularly like that it draws its inspiration from the feel of antique maps. Too many art departments just grind out another glitzy computer game with inappropriate modern computer graphics.

I haven't played this in a few years, so I don't remember exactly where the game puts these two forts. I hope they're in the right place.

Re: Wars of Succesion

I think you missed the distinction between the Epigoni and the Diadochi. Antigonus, Cassander, and Antipater aren't Epigoni, and they are well known precisely because they are Diadochi. The Ageod engine would work for the Epigoni, but the only way to slip them past the general public would be to inc...

Re: Wars of Succesion

The Diadochi would be a fantastic subject for a game, but I'm not sure that the Ageod engine could handle it properly. It was too much of a civil war, and armies could (and did) quickly turn on their commanders and change sides. Perdiccas was about to win the civil war when his troops took too many ...

I took a stab at testing the GUIbottomLeft file without changing the Local Strings_AGE file, and can confirm that you need to make alterations to both for the text and the black box to vanish.
