Turn 22 to Lung
Welcome all to the new thread
Turn 22 ==> Shavlor
Turn 22 to Lung
Thanks Lung for Volunteering, Well Im going to post a new thread, and look around for a reserve.
If anyone knows someone who wants sub, have them email me, firstname.lastname@example.org or post on this thread or the new one.
Bad news, guys, i'm afraid....
The game opened and played, but crashed when i finished the turn. I suspect that you guys are using a mod of some kind? I had this problem in Hex's team pbem, although i couldn't even open it in that game.
I guess you guys will have to find another reserve:-( Bummer! If Swissy's not in your game, i'm sure he's keen to play reserve.
The Lung is dead.....long live the Lung!!!
Turn 22 to Swissy.
I hope this works!!
I had the same problem as Lung, everything ok until I hit END, Then it crashed.
ou will probably have to find someone with the same mod you started with
Actually I have two computers at my house one of them has the mod installed the other does not(never did).
Anyways Don has volunteered to play, and it should definitely work for him. because he is playing in Hex's Team PBEM.
Thanks to Both Swissy and Lung for their noble effort, and to Don for his upcoming effort.

I have my doubts that anybody will be able to play Demos's turn, until I can figure out, the exact setup he was using. I decided to try and play Demosthenes's turn myself.
Don't worry Jon, Shavlor, and Demosthenes I just opened the game and hit end turn, trying not to look at the screen
It appears Demosthenes's turn is special, my turn, Shavlor's, and Jon's ran with only Patch 1.2 installed. When I got to Demosthenes's turn, it crashed when I hit end. I ran several configurations to no avail.
Just 1.2 and the Hack installed - No go
1.2, the hack, and quicker in the scenario directory - no go
Dutchesse replacement files installed, 1.2, hack, dutcheeses, and quicker scenario in the directory - once again no go.
Does anyone have any suggestions. I remember Shavlor saying he was able to play Demos's turn, Im going to see if he remembers how he had it setup. Jon do want to do a test run of Demos's turn before sending it along, and tell me how your CTP game is setup.
I once again tried to run Domes's game but now I can't. Maybe because of the fact that my CTP was just reinstalled. I don't know. I tried to copy all of the Apolyton's Scienario into my ctp-data directory but I still couldn't end his turn. I tried to deattach Fireredram but since no go. I am sorry I am at a lost.
This dates back to when Demos installed CD and then couldn't run any other game. I told him the Directories he needed to do dupes of so that he could switch between different games by renaming them. I think he had to do a complete re-install of CTP first, then 1.2, then DC, then CD, etc etc.........
Whatever happened when he set CTP up again changed something. I'm sure it's down to CD as I know that that really played havoc with me at first.
I cannot do anything with Demos' turn. I end my turn and the game saves OK but I cannot attach the AI to him, OK with everyone else, and I have now tried to open and end his turn and I do not even have the chance to do any error checking as when it crashes it brings my machine down with it. Really weird????
Just thought Id Bump this Thread up as Demosthenes will be returning on the 10th which is Monday. So this game should start rolling again.
My people grow impatient for action.
Happy New Year!
I see that I've been causing problems even in my absense!?
Guys, I'm really sorry that I've stalled the game. Someone send me the file and lets see if I can make head nor tail of it, ok?
Again, I'm sorry about the hassle.
Sorry, double post.

Turn 22 to Demos.
I hope that after all this it works!!!
Turn 22 ==> Hex
Well, for some strange reason everything worked fine for me. maybe my computer used it's five percent chance of revolting or something! Everything worked fine on my turn in Swissy's game didn't it Lung?
Anyway, sorry to make you guys wait for so long for the game to commence, but we are back in business!
...and let me be the first to welcome Demos back into the real world. As he will notice, his kingdom is exactly the same as he left it
Oh, by the way, turn 22/23 -> Sophix
Turn 23 --> Jon
Nice to have the game rolling again.
Welcome back Demos.
Yeah Hex, it's almost as though the whole world stood still and awaited my return...
Turn 23 ==> Hex
Turn 23/24 -> Sophix
Gee, I wonder what caused that... :0
Have you figured it out Demos - What kind of setup do you have - Lung had a similar problem in my team game.
Turn 24 --> Jon
Turn 24 to Demos
Turn 24 ==> Hex
To be honest Hex I'm not sure! I've tinkered about with the files so much with all the add-ons, patches, upgrades, and so on, that I'm scared to remove anything now in case even _I_ won't be able to play my turn! Then the game really would be screwed. I know the problems I had started when I installed CD's mod as Jon well knows. At that point even trying to play solo games was impossible because it simply crashed every time I loaded a saved game. I think it may have even started to crash when starting up a new game aswell. What I did, and how I fixed the problem, were contained in braincells that I have now destroyed through alcohol, so I'm afraid that I don't know whether I reinstalled, replaced files back again, or what!
Turn 24/25 -> Sophix
Here's a suggestion. I don't know if you have the room for this on your hard drive or if you want to chance this...
Try a dual install setup in your Activision folder. I have one complete setup with all the PBEM Scenario files only and another setup with my various mods, like the Apolyton Pack, Medieval Mod and so forth. I have this setup because the Medieval Mod alters some default files, and I didn't want to take the chance of running into file compatibility problems.
Call the folder for PBEM
Civilization - Call to Power
the other will be called someting like
Civilization - Call to Power1, with all your modifications
The gamefile will search for the Civilization - Call to Power folder. Simply switch the names of the folders before launching any game, based on the setup you use.
Just a suggestion - if doing this, you'll have to uninstall and reinstall everything.

Turn 25 ==> Shavlor
Does anyone think FRR is ever coming back?
Hex, I'm just worried that if I start tinkering around again that the game will stop once more. We have established that you need my specific setup to play my turn, it's just that I don't know what that is anymore.
The prospect of stopping the game for a couple of weeks again doesn't grab me, and as we seem to be progressing ok now, I think I'll leave well alone.
BTW what _has_ happened to Fire Red Ram?
Plus, when did all this settler, chieftain, warlord business come into play? And what does it mean, if anything?

The Warlord etc thing has just replaced the old Civer/Junior Civer System. I think it just reflects the length of time you've been a member and how active you are on the BB.
As for FireRedRum - What has happened to him?
