  • PROJECT: Playtest

    Hi folks

    Several ppl have requested a binary with the result of our efforts until now. Here it is

    Please remember that this is for playtesting porpuses only so dont count on it working for anything other than finding more bugs.

    Please also remember to read the apolyton_README.txt included for a list of changes and other usefull information.

    Feedback is most welcome both when something we changed works and when it doesnt.

    Edit: Removed link. The latest version of the Apolyton Edition can be found here.

    Have fun
    Klaus

        Thanks Kaan but how can I use it? Do I have to install the source code or can I simply unzip and replace the files in my CtP2 folder?

          unzip and replace is the right answer.
          just treat it like a mod that isnt made for modswapper.
          be carefull to install it on top of a vanilla ctp2 install and dont expect ANY mod to work with it.

          oh, and read the apolyton_README.txt

            Reports on the playtest release:

            The readme file does not match the actual game. The code changes of 10-12-2003 are listed in the readme file (the last 4), but appear to be missing from the executable.

            The path of upsg001.tga in the ZIP-file is incorrect. This file should be moved from ctp2_data\default\gamedata\graphics\pictures to ctp2_data\default\graphics\pictures to get it to display.

            The screen layout of the start-up screen has to be updated.
            The "THIS MATERIAL [...] ACTIVISION" message is partially hidden by the hotseat button, and in its turn obscures the version number.

            I had no problems playing it.

                To clarify - does it go over the unpatched vanilla CtP2 or over a patched install?

                edit: this might be embarrassing considering i havent read the readme yet, downloading sloooooowly

                  Ok first thing

                  [FIX]

                  "Neptun Map", it has the wrong description next to it, it says its east to west connects, obviously thats Earth, should be north to south connect only. Dunno if this is posted elsewhere

                  By the way i extracted over the vanilla game with 1.11 official patch on, so tell me if this is wrong asap.

                  edit again:

                  Okay i got it on now and the Neptune map description is still wrong, but disbanding units in the city mananger now works properly, woohoo.

                      Well this copy and paste stuff.

                      Use the file in the attachment instead of the ldl_str.txt.

                      Note for users of the German version of the game the string is already correct so you don't need this file.

                      For the disclaimer on the start screen I prefer a string like the version info, you have to consider that I don't want to have an English disclaimer in a German CTP2. You can remove it with the same work as you would replace such a string, and the scenario editor disclaimer is also just a string. Of course for now it is ok but for later builds we need the possibility to localize it, without replacing 900 kb large images.

                          I don't see that this with the disclaimer has been addressed, it is still an image of 960 kb. But actual I expect this needs some more time but not ages either.
