Rome : Total War Changing Diplomatic Messages Tutorial

Not a very complicated tutorial but i thought it i might as well write a tutorial for it. This tutorial will tell you how to change diplomatic responses, took all of 5 minutes to make

--NotePad or similar text editing device.
--Legal copy of RTW to play with your new diplomatic messages.

Step 1: Start off by opening your root RTW directory, by default it should be "C:\Program Files\Activision\Rome - Total War".

Step 2: Navigate to: "C:\Program Files\Activision\Rome - Total War\Data\text".

Step 3: Open "diplomacy.txt", you should now have a screen like this:

Step 4: Change whatever you like, ive changed the "Welcome ally" entry, for easy testing. Be careful to conserve spaces and such.

Step 5: Run RTW, if you did exactly what i did (text and all) you will get this when you enter diplomacy with the Senate :

EDIT: Has nothing to do with this, but i cant get the gravatar thing working, i've got the exact same e-mail there as here and i've set up a icon and selected it, yet it wont show up?

Clear out the cache in your browser and reload the page. Ctrl + F5 is the usual keyboard shortcut. I just did it to mine and I can see your avatar. Is that something you did in 3ds Max?
