Swedish Faction Released!

Postby Lady Meg » Sat Oct 27, 2007 2:45 pm

It?s been a while since you have heard anything from the Lordz Modding Collective officially, but the wait was not in vain gentlemen.

We?ve been hard at work on a new faction. Those of the NTW community who have been clever enough, or perhaps just noisy, might have already discovered what that faction might be. In the hopes of not becoming a killjoy, I?ll let the folks who have no idea what I am talking about in on the secret: we placed a hint in the previous release. This Easter Egg, if you were able to find it, would have given most community members an idea of what we were planning on creating. Without further ado, here is the hidden clue found deep in Rome - Total War\napoleonic\data\UI\unit_info\sweden

Still lost? It?s an image of a Swedish infantryman. While we won?t give away every detail in this next release, you can expect (in addition to the new Swedish faction) the usual touch-ups and fixes. Here are a few screenshots to amuse you or perhaps frustrate you as the next release is completed.

Very strange - I never get CTD at all - ever - but I get the big freeze, same as you, near the end of games only, never early on.

It surprise's me that you guys keep on playing these 3v3 and 4v4 when you KNOW they're going to crash.......I'd rather not bother playing at all than get that damn freeze minutes from the end. I play the odd one now and again in the vain hope it's somehow fixed it's self, but of course it never has and I get freeze again.

Reinstalled everything several times without beeing able to solve the problem.

Never bothered to do that myself, re-installing the same thing won't make any difference so far as I can tell.

If someone made a version that took out bp and it NEVER crashed with that out I'd make a small bet it would soon become the general lobby version that all use.

bp is no longer really required anyway as that was done becuase of the shooting blocks and most now accept that play with shooting blocks is not wanted and is not used except by new players till they "learn" the general rule of no shooting blocks - so the bp could now be taken out anyway - no ?.

Yes, the joke's over, it's not funny any more.

The freeze is so serious I'm thinking of having a 3 month break now till LG appears.

I don't know about anyone else but I WISH I did get a CTD instead of the freeze. It takes me about 15 minutes to get out of the sodding freeze back to the desk top.

Why does the freeze come in phases ?. I get NONE for weeks, then wack - non stop every night for a week or two, then stop and none again......it just don't make any sense.

Now they have started again, I'll get frozen out of every other game for about a week - so maybe take a week away to be beach, getting a bit cold for that tho.......

Why One Faction at a Time?

Postby noone23 » Tue Oct 30, 2007 12:15 am

So... now you have chosen the Swedes as your next faction. Well, I'm sure they will make as good a fodder as the other enemies of Napoleon. Why, meanwhile, if I may be so bold as to ask, are you now adding only one faction at a time? Also, what are the touchups and fixes you mentioned?

or maybe he did and the secret has been covered up for 200 years just o confound you Jakob :twisted:

on a stranger note I just remembered i stumbled across a video on YOuTube: some guy believed(in depth analysis and conspiracy, believe) that all history before 1000BCE was made up by a group of Jesuit priests, he than went on to give all these historical events and examples, and explain the.....but I digress.................GO SWEDEN!

Napoleon vs. the Swedes

Postby noone23 » Wed Oct 31, 2007 11:28 pm

Jakob, I also recall offhand that Napoleon never payed a visit to Sweden. However, the Allied Army of the North(led by Bernadotte and including Swedish units)did have at the French and their allies(such as the latter were by then)during the battle of Leipzig.

Finland was part of Sweden during the onset of the Wars and ended as part of Russia.
