New Patcher and server

So the old Patcher server went down and I thought this was it. But I was wrong.
I have to say that, in my modding years I have met some really nice and awesome people, people who have helped me without asking for anything in return. Two such people are Expression93 and TechAUmNu, who have offered to host my mod on their awesome servers, helping me deliver content in such a way that it rivals actual corporations. Thank you deeply.

The Patcher is now back up and running but on a different server, which means that everyone needs to download a new Patcher.
All links throughout the blog which redirect to the Patcher are the same, so just go ahead and click on one of them, like THIS one.

For the people who can't get the Patcher working, for some reason or another, a new installer will eventually come but it will take some time until that happens. I have A LOT of stuff to work on before I call it a day.
So in the meantime use the manual installation links, I guess. Please contact me if the Patcher doesn't work for you, this is ridiculous, it should work for everybody.

I would also want to thank DayoftheNinja from the Wars of Liberty mod, who offered to help host the mod in case everything else fails.

Thank you all for being here and for playing!

  2. just a heads up, the Main theme no longer plays when booting up the game, Noddinagushpa on the other hand still does play after the match end... (I wish there was a way to not have Noddinagushpa play and instead use the "Main Theme" of the EP {Note that this also affects vanilla, and has always irked me.)

    And yet again all 3 monster trucks share the Icecream Truck texture

    When playing as the Spanish and revolting to Mexico, the "Pistolero" should be speaking spanish, as they are "Outlaws".

    Cont from the above, spacing for better reading... the Gunslinger is okay, but my preference would be to replace them with "Renegados (in game they are "outlaw riflemen" and use the same audio as the spanish mortars)...

    After doing research, it turns out that the Hidalgo revolt was a part of vanilla, and you did not change anything about it. If you have time (and feel like it) it would be appreciated if you changed it

    1. Yes, the theme will not play until I release the "BIG" update, because I made some changes to the sound folders (so the new patcher uninstall option works better) and the mod needs the new, updated exe. I haven't released the new exe yet because it also has the new teams 2 and 4 option and that won't properly work without the updated maps which are not ready and will need to be released with the "BIG" update.

      1. The reasons they don't speak Spanish is because, for some reason, the Revolution tech sent the guardian version of the unit, OutlawPistol instead of SaloonOutlawPistol, which is the mercenary unit you can train. By sending the guardian version, you got a shittier unit which does not use formations and did not get affected by techs such as the saloon outlaw pop tech.
      So I changed it to send the mercenary version. And the problem here is that the guardian probably speaks Spanish, and the merc speaks English. I could change them so they both speak the same language.

      2. OutlawRifleman would be the shitty version, SaloonOutlawRifleman is the one you want. And yes, it could be done, but why? Currently the Revolution tech sends both Pistolero and Renegado. Just because of the audio? Mercenaries are shared between civs, so it's better for them to not speak the language of the civ and instead speak a single language for all civs. The reason I changed their names is because they sounded very Spanish (Pistolero, Renegado) for a unit that can be trained by any civ, and they were also names that could be translated into English. When a unit uses a name which can be easily translated into English, I prefer to use the English name then.

      3. I don't understand this one. Hildago is the one with the outlaws, how was he not changed? All Revolution leaders were changed, and by this I don't mean just the units they send, all Rev techs now have extra bonuses.

  3. Sorry if I didn't make it clear, Hidalgo is the guy who makes the Pistoleros and Gunslingers, I mainly wanted them to be speaking Spanish, hence the suggested name changes. But it's understandable that they aren't changed, as I didn't know that they were shared across all civs.

    1. Sounds like someone may have pirated the game

      But in all seriousness, sometimes the installers will screw up. Here's the DLL files for the ENGLISH GFWL Version

    1. You could say I bit more than I can chew this time.
      There is so much work to do and so little time to do it.

      I will tell you this however, it will come and when it does it will be absolutely huge, filled with new, top quality content.

      I might release parts of it instead of the whole thing soon.
