Hotseat game status: - Sicily has won on turn 115



Players (in turn order): (with links to write-ups) plus some other links where I consider it to be funny

Selifator: England
Kilij Ae Varyl: Spain

Venice - FACTION DESTROYED

Me Sicily

EoJ: Turks
I think I might have referenced this video before in the first crusade
This might be more appropriate... Looks like I was right there

Rankings - Turn 101



Rankings - Turn 69



Subs
Glacier_Girl played as sub for England - T29, T30
- played as sub for Sicily - T33

Monty501 played as sub for Spain T30, T 31
JuBuOrangie played as sub for Venice - T31 to T40
Lloydsgamble played as sub for Venice T41 to 42
Brutiangodofrock played as sub for Venice T43 to T65
Zsmart one played as sub for Turks T50 to T65
Hashoosh played as sub for Turks T64


Rules to note:

No 'exploiting' of any kind (e.g. putting forts on resources and stocking them with merchants) nor reloading your go to get a better result.

If I don't hear from a player within 4 days of receiving a turn, I will try to find a sub to take the turn.

If you don't expect to be able to play within 4 days, just let me know - extensions are fine (preferably not too often though please). I'll send a reminder email after a couple of days as a prompt.

If you expect an extended absence, e.g. not being able to play for over a week, you're invited to arrange a sub, giving them instructions etc so your turn is played as you'd like it to be.

An 'un-arranged' sub has the option to take over after 2 weeks or 10 turns The '2 weeks' here looks a little low, but the turn limit looks high?

Ok, i have a problem. I try to load the game up but as soon as i click Retrofit and the game begins to load the screen goes black and a box pops up and says "Out of Range". However if i press Alt + Tab it takes me back to my desktop like usual and if i take a screen shot of the black thing it take a screen shot of the Start page for M2TW. Also the music is on the whole time. Could this be anything to do with the fact i downloaded FKOC mod yesterday? Anyone know what is going on?

Unless the FKOC mod touches retrofit or the core kingdoms files then it shouldn't be the cause. Do FKOC and Kingdoms (any campaign) still work?

In the main M2TW folder there should be a "system.log" file that you can open as a text file - it might give some idea as to what's gone wrong.

I don't suppose that you can click on the buttons even if you can't see them?

FKOC worked yesterday when i played it just afterdownloading it. I just tried Brittania campaign and it didn't work so it is probably a problem with Kingdoms? Will uninstalling FKOC be enough to make it work or will i have to uninstall and reinstall Kingdoms and Retrofit?

From looking on google it seems to be some sort of video error. Try opening medieval2.preference.cfg and see if the video settings are reasonable.

For comparison, mine say:
[video]
anisotropic_level = 2
anti_alias_mode = off
antialiasing = 2
assassination_movies = 0
autodetect = 0
battle_resolution = 1680 1050
bloom = 1
building_detail = high
campaign_resolution = 1680 1050
depth_shadows = 2
depth_shadows_resolution = 2
effect_quality = highest
event_movies = 1
gamma = 128
grass_distance = 500
ground_buffers_per_node = 4
ground_cover_buffers_per_node = 4
infiltration_movies = 0
model_buffers_per_node = 4
no_background_fmv = 0
reflection = 1
sabotage_movies = 0
shader = 2
show_banners = 1
show_package_litter = 1
skip_mip_levels = 0
splashes = 1
sprite_buffers_per_node = 4
stencil_shadows = 1
subtitles = 1
terrain_quality = custom
texture_filtering = 1
unit_detail = higher
vegetation = 1
vegetation_quality = high
vsync = 0
water_buffers_per_node = 4
widescreen = 1

setting "autodetect = 1" would be a good plan if there's something wrong with the other settings.

Restarting your computer might be worth a shot, just in case, before uninstalling anything

I thought i'd better post this here so people could have a look instead of just C&Ping yours into mine incase this is PC specific?

It is computer specific, to some degree - for example mine is on widescreen mode. I can't see anything too odd in yours unfortunately.

As I say, try changing to autodetect to 1 in case that helps it.

I don't suppose you've changed your videocard drivers at all recently? I guess you'd have mentioned that if you had done.
A lot of the internet posts for black screens seem to be related to ATi cards and people recommend downloading the latest drivers as a fix. That seems odd in your case as it has been working fine in the past.
(e.g. http://www.twcenter.net/forums/showthread.php?t=72650 )

I'd still go with "turn it off and on again" if you haven't...

Ahh, and one last thing - in either the retrofit preferences or the main ones, try adding "windowed= true"

Played and sent. Charts are looking interesting again. Also, one of my king has 4 daughters and not a single son. Hereditary problem much?

You can't say that civilization don't advance, however, for in every war they kill you in a new way.

Chauvinism is not a particularly nice trait at the best of times but can be suicidal when the person your talking too can have you executed on a whim.

Facebook, anyone?

your kind of wrong there Zsmart, i know a girl who is colour blind, and my sister is a haemophiliac (only Haemophilia C is non sexist and me,my sis and ma dad allllll have it :P) BANG there goes your theory hehe. If you don't believe me about my sis having Haemophilia C look it up on the net. WHen we found out we had it, we did a quick google and knew more about it than our doctor (its like 1/1000000 have it >.< 3/4 my family have it :P)

oof, unlucky on the haemophilia.

We almost had all of the turns going around within 24 hours - I played at 9 something yesterday and it got back to Venice earlier this afternoon; it would have been impressive, if a little strange, to get it around that fast.

I've honest to God no idea why we're at war.

Nah, see, the balance is that while I have the best fleet in the game (as far as I can work out- your hub end is or obvious reasons shrouded in fog) it's localised to the western med, and of course it is being supported at the expense of having a million land armies.

Does however stop you invading Sicily, which was the main objective of it when Bandito was still around.

Nope, that would be one of my recently adopted generals, despite his wife being a bloody harlot he's quite the good general. Pity that he won't be making many kids, even a grown man wouldn't want to wake up next to a monster.

I sent it off last night though your message confused me Swampy. I played it and sent it to you, not the other way around . EoJ sent it to me.

Hmm, I meant it as in: event 1 (clock starts) - you sent me the save
event 2 (clock gets ready to stop) - you received the save

We've now added:
event 3 (clock stops) - you pass me the save again for the following turn
Yes, I'm not good at using whatsit code on the forum, those pesky square brackets...
I'd like to state now, for the record, that Sicily has no fleets, no ports and even if we do have any (which we don't) then we have no intention of making any fleets. Any fleets which are accidentally made by ports that we don't have will not in any way seek to harm or offend anyone.

Update: Save now on to Zsmart one and ranking charts refreshed.
I hadn't noticed that Sicily had stopped production, I must pay more attention...

Brutian, do you realise you're mocking someone for playing a turn and not remembering to pass it on / wrongly thinking they had done?
I just thought I'd check

Speaking of which though...
Off to play now.
