BUG-FIXER, an unofficial patch for both Rome: Total War and its expansion pack
Version 3.36
Compiled by player1

Requires:
v1.5 patch for Rome: Total War,
or v1.6 patch for Barbarian Invasion expansion pack


Introduction:

This is compilation of fixes to various bugs that can be found in Rome: Total War and its expansion pack Barbarian Invasion. Many of the fixes were not originally my ideas, but ideas of other members from gaming community that I compiled in one unofficial patch. Since unofficial, it is in no way associated with Creative Assembly, Activision or SEGA.

Just run installer included in the archive.
But don't forget to specify correct Rome - Total War folder.



List of fixes for Barbarian Invasion Campaign

-Fixed a problem when first solider in the group would be missing transparency info for his textures (units affected: Hun General, WRE Imperial German Bodyguard, Pictish Crossbowmen, Chosen Archers)
-Several fixes for Imperial Bodyguard unit regarding its shield for WRE faction and weapons for WRE Rebels faction (but with use of some compromises)

-Fixed a bug when Slav Steppe Raiders had no proper textures on their swords
-Fixed a problem when Bosphoran Infantry would carry both spear and sword in its hand

Changes in descr_model_strat.txt file:

-Changed wrong textures that Burgundii and Lombadri generals used on strategic map (fixed textures added)


Changes in descr_sounds_units_fire.txt

-Fixed missile attack sounds for Celtic and Sassanid slingers, so it doesn't sound like bow fire
-Fixed the bug which made projectiles of various siege equipment have no sound (units affected: Onager, Heavy Onager, Ballistas, Repeating Ballistas, Carriage Ballistas)


Changes in export_descr_sounds_stratmap_voice.txt
and export_descr_sounds_units_battle_events.txt files:

-Fixed voices for campaign map and battle events for Hun faction, so they'll be barbaric like all other voices they use (units in battle, general speech), and not Arabic


Changes in export_descr_sounds_units_voice.txt file:

-Added missing voices for Scorpion unit
-Removed "Yes, Imperator!" confirmation from Catholic Priests and Mercenary Bucellarii, since these units can also be used by non-imperial factions


Changes in export_descr_unit.txt file:

-Added missing cantabrian circle ability for Mercenary Sarmatian Archers, since Sarmatian Armoured Archers, as well as all other horse archer units, already have it
-Added warcry ability that was missing from Hun Steppe Swordsmen, considering that they are identical to Vandal Steppe Swordsmen that also have warcry


Changes in export_descr_buildings.txt file:

-Added +1 experience bonus to Vandal Steppe Warriors trained in Royal Stables, since otherwise Royal Stables would have no benefit over Warlord's Stables
-Changed experience bonus British Legionaries gain in Urban Barracks from +1 to +2, since otherwise Urban Barracks would have no benefit over Army Barracks
-Made Bucellarii, Ballistae and Repeating Ballistae recruitable by Romano Britons in campaign, since they are already available for them in custom battles
-Removed law bonus from Mithras shrines, since otherwise Mithras temples have no real advantage over shrines (exempt pagan conversion bonus)
-Changed happiness bonus for Sacred Circles of Tyz and Morrigan from 10% to 15%, since these are only Sacred Circles that miss happiness advantage compared to Sacred Groves (making them underpowered)
-Fixed the bug when Hun, Nomad and Sassanid factions can't benefit from conquered higher level health buildings


Changes in export_descr_ancillaries.txt file:

-Fixed bonuses for Bodyguard, Charioteer and Elder Senator retinue members, so they'll actually give bonus/penalty to Influence and not only affect public order
-Fixed trigger for Drinking Companion retinue member, so it can be gained at both Tavern and Bardic Circle like all other drinking related ancillaries and not just in Tavern
-Fixed Sassanid Turncoat ancillary, so it actually gives command bonus against Sassanids
-Fixed the bug when same governor could have both Sol Invictus and Mithras Priest in his retinue, due to a typo in ancillary exclusion list
-Fixed triggers for Navigator and Pilot ancillaries, so they can be gained by admirals
-Fixed Son of Chinglu title, so it can be awarded to 3 generals as intended


Changes in export_descr_character_traits.txt file:

-Added anti-traits to some traits to prevent weird or impossible combinations
-Several anti-traits that worked in one direction fixed to work in both directions
-Added the workaround for a bug when gaining an anti-trait would reset trait value to 0 (instead of reducing it for value of anti-trait)
-Increased point awards in birth and adoption triggers for traits that need more then one point to get first level of the trait, so it's actually possible to gain those traits at character generation (expect more vices and virtues from new family members)
-Removed anti-traits for Intelligent line of traits, since characters shouldn't be able to lose intelligence over time
-Removed the trigger for gaining IndecisiveAttacker group of traits when ending turn in enemy zone of control, since trigger does not work as intended (it can fire even when you can't attack the enemy, or when you are besieging)
-Fixed a problem when IndecisiveAttacker traits could be gained if general withdraws when attacked by superior force (not indecisive, but smart)
-Added partial workaround for a problem when auto-calculated siege battles would never give siege related traits to generals (one of four triggers fixed)
-Fixed bonuses for Sobriety like of traits, so they'll actually give penalty to Influence as intended and not only affect public order
-Fixed trigger for Logistical skill, so it can be gained by generals that move a lot
-Fixed trigger for BadTaxman line of traits, so it won't be awarded in situations when tax policy is best as it could be
-Made impossible for Roman leaders to gain points in Disloyal line of traits, since they can't rebel anyway
-Removed Roman culture requirement from trigger for refusing bribes, so that non-Romans can benefit from resisting bribes (by gaining levels in Upright line of traits that increase bribe resistance)
-Introduced two new birth triggers to make it possible that Intelligent and Genius characters could be born
-Fixed Good/BadConspirator line of traits, so they can be gained by assassins
-Corrected sabotage triggers, so that they make more sense
-Fixed several agent creation triggers related to religious believes


Other:

-Added description for 3rd level barracks for Berber faction (export_buildings.txt)
-Changed Berber cultural designation from Carthaginian to Berber, so formerly Berber controlled cities won't report Carthaginian culture (expanded_bi.txt)
-Fixed battle advisor icon for Berber faction, so it has correct eastern advisor and not Roman one (added correctly named battlemap.tga)
-Fixed the bug when some soldiers would die when exiting medium siege towers (descr_engines.txt)



List of fixes for Imperial Campaign


Changes in descr_model_battle.txt file:

-Fixed shoulder armor for Legionary and Praetorian Cavalry (fixed models added)
-Fixed Velite Gladiator shoulder armor
-Fixed the wrong color of Spanish generals by giving them proper texture


Changes in export_descr_unit.txt file:

-Added warcry ability to Thracian Bastarnae, since Mercenary Bastarnae already have it


Changes in export_descr_buildings.txt file:

-Added +1 experience bonus to Greek Cavalry trained in Greek Elite Cavalry Stables, since it makes no sense to build Elite Cavalry Stables just to get Incendiary Pigs
-Made Slingers available from Practice Range in place of Archers for Numidian faction, since otherwise when you get Slingers at Archery Range they are already obsolete
-Made Onagers recruitable by Spaniards in campaign, since they are already available for them in custom battles

-Fixed the trigger for Poisoner ancillary, so it can be gained by assassins


Changes in both export_descr_character_traits.txt and export_VnVs.txt files:

-Parts of Energetic line of traits tweaked, so they won't get worse at higher levels
-To prevent drop in morale bonus when becoming Legendary Hero, this trait gets its morale bonus increased from +2 to +4 (to same level as National Hero) and also gets a +1 bonus to Command when attacking (like same trait in Barbarian Invasion expansion)


Changes in export_descr_character_traits.txt file only:

-Added anti-traits to some traits to prevent weird or impossible combinations
-Several anti-traits that worked in one direction fixed to work in both directions
-Added the workaround for a bug when gaining an anti-trait would reset trait value to 0 (instead of reducing it for value of anti-trait)
-Increased point awards in birth and adoption triggers for traits that need more then one point to get first level of the trait, so it's actually possible to gain those traits at character generation (expect more vices and virtues from new family members)
-Changed crushing victory condition in triggers for GoodRiskyAttacker/Defender line of traits to clear or better, since winning difficult battles with just clear victory is great accomplishment on its own
-Removed the trigger for gaining IndecisiveAttacker group of traits when ending turn in enemy zone of control, since trigger does not work as intended (it can fire even when you can't attack the enemy, or when you are besieging)
-Fixed trigger for Logistical skill, so it can be gained by generals that move a lot
-Smoothtalker changed to be diplomat trait, since its effects deal with bribing
-Fixed trigger for BadTaxman line of traits, so it won't be awarded in situations when tax policy is best as it could be

There was not a sinlge download of versions from 3.04 to 3.09

Maybe I'll stop uploading new versions of BUG-FIXER here.

I'll think about it...


EDIT (04/02/2006):
I'll still do updates...

[Edited on 04/02/06 @ 09:09 AM]

Just make sure you've installed it in your Rome - Total War folder.
FactionHeir I think there may be some problem with this bug fixer.
After installing it, a third of the time my family members win a battle they get the "doubtful loyalty" trait.

I think that has nothing to do with Bug-fixer.

In Barbarian Invasion campaign, successful Roman generals start to lose Loyalty after some time (by gaining disloyal traits).

This is a fantastic unofficial patch, I have played RTW both with and without it and the difference is immense. There are a lot of improvements, particularly in traits and ancillaries. The visual fixes are also noticeable and very welcome. The installer is a great help as well. I can find no faults with this mod.

The best way I can sum up this mod succinctly is this: Just get it, it's great.
