Rogers is one of the few models that has not been created specifically for Pontiac’s War so he has the promotion possibility that other leaders don’t have. I don’t think that Rogers is a leader that was ever likely to make general – maybe if Lodi reads this he may decide to remove the promote option from him and other irregular leaders/rangers?
Interesting to note the display bug as well.

The bug can be seen last turn, on Fort de Chartres.
Hobbes will want to see how I beat the Indians and how I get to rename most buildings involved in that war.
Hobbes wrote:evt_nam_NiagaraLost1PW is just a message to inform the player of its loss and the text is in the latest version.
The lack of wintering was either a design decision or a bug which has been fixed (so long ago I forget).
Indian supplies are always used up at the start of winter – so WAD.
Not sure I understand the Fort Bradstreet name.
Did you somehow amend the name yourself? Did you build a stockade via the option - or by using artillery and supply?
Narwhal wrote:It is just Fort Erié that was destroyed and rebuilt by me using 2 supply units. I suppose the engine name new forts by the name of the founder if no name is avalaible, which was the case for some reason.
Hobbes wrote:Hi folks, in case you are thinking of trying the scenario you may want to wait for a few weeks. I will post a new patch when I have had time to test it with the following changes (and possibly one or two others). I'm hoping that this will be the final patch, but I may put some work in to create a scenario that is playable against a British AI once King William's War is complete (unless I start work on a Peloponnesian War scenario).
I'll post here when it is ready.
William Johnson’s constitution has been improved – he won’t fall ill quite as often
The Indian Chalagawatha objective has been removed. It was not necessary as it is already a British objective.
This is also an attempt to reduce Indian VP slightly
Junundat removed as a British objective should the Wyandots tire of the fight
New Mississauga Indian village at Ganaraske on the northern shore of lake Ontario
Several events have modified triggering criteria or text
Robert Rogers graphic will now appear correctly
The duplicate Allan Campbell is now the correct John Campbell
The Cahokias Confluent is now navigable
The British are not given the option to build bateaux on the Ohio river until the Indian villages of Sawcunk and Wakatomika have been subdued
Missing text for the Vincennes and fort Chartres capture events is now included
Fixed bug where sometimes Indians would gain a regular monthly supply from traders
Fixed bug where Cherokee’s would intercept Indian supply each turn. This is now a % chance each turn if the Cherokee option has been selected by the British player
Both trader and captured British supply is removed from the Indians at the start of each winter. Fresh supply can be obtained from traders in the spring.
More chance of the Indians suffering a morale loss during the winter months
Cayuga fixed units changing sides remain in their villages
Hopkins graphic appears correctly
Fox unlocked when reacting to a Dahcotah raid
Several other small fixes and improvements.
EDIT: Sorry for the delay with this - if anyone is waiting for the final patch.
I am now having some problems with the AI aggression in WiA patch 1.07.
Hope I can get this sorted out and then the patch will be available.
EDIT II: Pocus has found a fix for the AI Aggression problem - The AI is sometimes moving into an assault posture when looking to assault a small structure some distance away - unfortunately it can move into this posture while in a region with a large fort - and thus makes a suicidal attack on the large fort! I will have to wait for the next patch before I can complete testing - so it may be some time yet.
Hobbes wrote:Update. The final version is now ready and will be released shortly after the next WiA patch (1.08) is made official (barring any major bugs).
Also backing up the latest files on the thread (I would not advise to use these before 1.08).
How is it looking after the latest patch release? Can I DL the mod and plug it in? I have been following it and waiting patiently.

I certainly had this issue under Windows Vista for the previous version, will check the new one tomorrow and let you know!
Hobbes wrote:Thanks deguerra, that's very interesting. I have managed to install a version without the problem - it almost seems random. No clue as to the reason at the moment.
Did you have the problem with the Pontiac scenario or a stock scenario? My PBEM opponent in King William's War did not get this problem using the same files as me.

It effects unit commanders on both sides. On the GBR side, Joseph Hopkins and Montresor seem to be immune.
Some of the Commanders show up correctly on the unit listing, until you select them for viewing on the map.
From my "wild guess" department: Looks like may have something to do with the compilation of "NULL" in your LocalStrings_WIA_PW.csv that is disliked by post Windows XP systems.
