The Forum Magnus

:D Thanks Dale.

 

I sent a PM to Gyathaar to learn a bit more about his fix, so that we might be able to use it and start up! Might have to redo my save, as I never checked to see if the Babs were in it or not - but otherwise, lets hope that this works!

If Trip had thought about it a bit more then this shouldn't have been a problem to begin with.

 

That said, I still like the game. :) Hopefully they will officially fix the conversion problems.

Welcome to WPC DoubleStack, and thanks for the tip!!

 

I'd rather wait for an official fix to be honest, or confirmation from the tech savvy folk here that everything is kosher with the script.

 

GK, what about trying this solution??

 

This save file was created with a deluxe install with the DLC\DLC_Deluxe folder removed from the Assets directory. Can someone confirm if it can be loaded in a standard install?

I have no idea what will happen if you run my script on a save where the babylonians is actually in it.. never tested that :)

Rob, it just hit me - my Latin is scant, but I think you mean The Forum Magnus.

 

I could never wrap my head around the grammar, though...

I've no idea BU, I got the name from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roman_Forum

 

The only other Latin I know is from :

 

[brian is writing graffiti on the palace wall. The Centurion catches him in the act]

Centurion: What's this, then? "Romanes eunt domus"? People called Romanes, they go, the house?

Brian: It says, "Romans go home. "

Centurion: No it doesn't ! What's the latin for "Roman"? Come on, come on !

Brian: Er, "Romanus" !

Centurion: Vocative plural of "Romanus" is?

Brian: Er, er, "Romani" !

Centurion: [Writes "Romani" over Brian's graffiti] "Eunt"? What is "eunt"? Conjugate the verb, "to go" !

Brian: Er, "Ire". Er, "eo", "is", "it", "imus", "itis", "eunt".

Centurion: So, "eunt" is...?

Brian: Third person plural present indicative, "they go".

Centurion: But, "Romans, go home" is an order. So you must use...?

[He twists Brian's ear]

Brian: Aaagh ! The imperative !

Centurion: Which is...?

Brian: Aaaagh ! Er, er, "i" !

Centurion: How many Romans?

Brian: Aaaaagh ! Plural, plural, er, "ite" !

Centurion: [Writes "ite"] "Domus"? Nominative? "Go home" is motion towards, isn't it?

Brian: Dative !

[the Centurion holds a sword to his throat]

Brian: Aaagh ! Not the dative, not the dative ! Er, er, accusative, "Domum" !

Centurion: But "Domus" takes the locative, which is...?

Brian: Er, "Domum" !

Centurion: [Writes "Domum"] Understand? Now, write it out a hundred times.

Brian: Yes sir. Thank you, sir. Hail Caesar, sir.

Centurion: Hail Caesar ! And if it's not done by sunrise, I'll cut your balls off.

 

Can you tell I got a good education in the classics? :D

Yes. Yes, I can.

 

I looked it up, and it's not exactly wrong - Magnum seems awkward and misleading, to my eye, though...

 

You do mean "The Great Forum"?

Don't worry, guys, I took 4 years of Latin in High School!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

...and I remember none of it.

Just a forum (physical place) in general, but didn't want to confuse it with our modern day forums (virtual place)

Me just two years and forgot almost everything.

But I think BU is right: nominative mode, so magnus.

Heh, all that latin debate....

 

Did Gyathaar fix work? Just wanted to know if we're "stuck" still or we can make progress and "expand or die!" :D

We're still working on it behind the scenes. Will update everyone as soon as we know for definaite.

From CFC

 

Nobody is having a problem with loading my save?

 

So it seems that removing everything from the DLC directory does work to downgrade a deluxe install to standard version. Which is good to know.

OK if this works someone please post a tutorial for us Bab folks who are old, senile, have Alzheimers, and are generally information age challenged :)

I think what you want is The Forum Romanum, anyway, Rob....

Hey guys, just wanted to point out the title is misspelled. Forum is neuter nominative, so magnus should also be neuter nominative => magnum

Unfortunately Firaxis has put a major spanner in the works!!! :rant:
