    Information:
    ============

    This is the Apolyton version of Call to Power II source code based on the released source code of Call to Power II, without the patch. It has been stripped of comments, but is otherwise complete as far as Activision code goes. It was originally built using Microsoft Visual Studio 6.0. In the mean time the Apolyton code was modified so that it works with the .NET compiler as well.

    Beware that not everything you need to build the game is here!

    In particular, the DirectX SDK is not included. The game was originally built with DirectX 7 and needed the DirectX Media SDK. Since DirectX Media SDK has been integrated into DirectX you do not need to download it separately. Newer versions of the DirectX SDK available from Microsoft at:

    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/B...n&categoryid=2

    Note that you need the SDK of October 2006 or prior to build the game for a Windows 95/98/ME computer.

    Make sure you add the Include and Lib and BaseClasses directories from this SDK to Tools->Options->Directories from Visual Studio, if they are not there already. If you installed them to default locations, that means you need to add e.g. for DirectX 9.0:

    C:\DXSDK\Include
    C:\DXSDK\Samples\C++\DirectShow\BaseClasses

    to your include directories path, and

    C:\DXSDK\Lib
    C:\DXSDK\Samples\C++\DirectShow\BaseClasses\Debug_ Unicode

    to your lib directories path.

    Note that the project files have been updated to link the code with DirectX 9.0. It has not been tested whether this may break linkage to older versions of DirectX.

    If you are using Visual Studio C++ 6.0 you need to add the following line to the list of include directories in front of the Microsoft standart directories, since MSVSC++ 6.0 comes with a defect standart library.

    C:\\ctp2_code\compiler\msvc6\stlfixes

    In order to build, you need an environment variable named CDKDIR on your computer. In Windows XP/2000, go to Control
    Panel->System->Environment Variables, and add it, with it's value set to /ctp2/bin, the directory with bison, flex, and other miscellaneous utilities in it.
    In Windows 9X/ME add to your autoexec.bat the following line:

    SET CDKDIR=\CTP2\bin

    Note that you must not add spaces between the environment variable name and the equal sign. The same holds for the path name and the equal sign.

    You have also to create a tmp directory on the harddrive you have the code, e.g.: C:\tmp

    Lastly, YOU NEED THE DATA DIRECTORY FROM THE ORIGINAL SHIPPING GAME. All the graphics, sounds, and other data files needed to actually run the game are not included here. Place the ctp2_data directory from the game install directory at the same directory level as ctp2_code in this archive to run an executable built from DevStudio. For instance if your ctp2_data directory has the path:

    C:\\ctp2_data\

    then your ctp2_code directory should have the path:

    C:\\ctp2_code\


    That's the basics. For the most part, you are on your own from here on out. Good luck!

    • Apolyton CTP2 Edition: Revision 1111 (12-Jun-2011)
      Martin Gühmann
      The Apolyton CTP2 Source Code team proudly presents the Apolyton CTP2 Edition Revision 1111 from June the 12th 2011.

      This new version focuses mainly on improving the AI. Especially how the AI handles its oversea conquest with land and air transporters. A bug fix makes the AI also a little bit relaxed with enemy units that could be a potential thread.

      We have also a few bug fixes and minor corrections.

      The Apolyton Edition can be directly installed over CTP2 v1.0, v1.1, or v1.11.

    • Release Party Chat Transcript (lots of useful info)
      Locutus
      Here are the highlights of the chat we had tonight, ordered by topic (in no particular order). The full transcript is below as attachment (too big to post). There's a lot of useful info in here on a variety of different topics (from very technical stuff to very... non-technical stuff), some of this might serve as basis for a FAQ of some sort. We'll have to see about that....
