No panic, we'll solve the problem. I have this game running on my girlfriend's computer and she has Win 7 too, so I know for a fact that it's playable there as well. :)

OK. I found the solution for you. I searched on CivFanatics and sometimes mods do report this GCF error. This is what I found on one of Fall from Heaven's threads; it's written by Kael too (one of the greatest civ modders), and he knows his stuff.

"1. Some people report a "GFC error: failed to initialaize the primary control theme" error loading the mod. In some cases reinstalls have resolved it, in others it seems to be caused when Civ4 isn't installed in the typical location (under Program Files/Firaxis Games/)."

Ah! Missing Interface. Try this. Find the Fairy Tale.ini file in the Fairy Tale folder where you installed it. It's right at the top under Mods/Fairy Tale. Open it using a text editor like Notepdad (just double clicking on it should do it). Find the lines where it says

; Custom Art from user folder is not loaded
NoCustomArt = 0

; Custom XML and Python from user folder are not loaded
NoCustomAssets = 0

Change the numbers to one. Like NoCustomArt = 1 and NoCustomAssets = 1 Then save the file.

That should do it. Now run the mod again and try it out. Report if it works, and if it doesn't, we'll figure out something else, but I think this is the problem.

I've never heard of a gcf error before, but we'll solve your problem. Do you perhaps run a Steam copy of Civilization 4? I think .gcf files has something to do with Steam. Exactly what does the error message say?

Oh. And by the way, you don't need Blue Marble for this mod anymore. We've added better terrain directly into it. The mod will look exactly like in the screenshots when we get it working for you! :)

A forum member tells me he's running the mod on Win XP and there's no problem at all. This mod works fine on XP. You're prolly experiencing some other problem then. Try to check that you have the correct install path (it should be in BtS folder/mods), that one's a classic in solving problems with Civ4 mods.

Furthermore. If nothing of the things I've told you works, try to download the mod again. It may be a case of the download having gotten corrupted during the process!

I have no possibility of checking whether the mod works as intended in XP. I've tried it in both Vista and Win7 myself, and I must say that I've never had any report of any failure in XP. But don't worry; I've put a question about it on the forum to see what other XP-users say, and I'll be reporting to you.

Here is some troubleshooting in the meantime. Have you installed all the game files to the correct folder? Not the MyGames folder, but it should be in the Mods folder in your Beyond the Swords catalog. Did you install all the updates in order? Like Full Install V8 first, then 8a and last, 8b. Do you have Patch 3.19?

Thank you kindly, Chemical Attraction! This has developed into a team effort, actually, and I am not solely responsible for it anymore. That fact only has excellent implications, because in a couple of months I'll be starting Fairy Tale II myself (for Civ5), and although I'll be tied up with that, Fairy Tale 1 won't die off, but continue to be developed!

You once offered writing help and we're now looking for help on the Civilopedia, if you're interested. I have a notice on it on the FT CivFanatics thread. Come join us if you like, and here's the link to the notice. Forums.civfanatics.com

Yes. This mod is even made on Vista and tested on Windows 7 too. Have you unzipped the files properly? Are you sure you have installed it to the correct directory? It should be in C:/Program/2kGames/BeyondTheSword/Mods (the installation folder on C:, where the game is installed). It should NOT be in the MyGames folder. Keep me updated on how it goes, and I will help you as good as possible. Have no panic; for all the files are there and ready to go, but I think you might have mistakenly put them in th ewrong folder.

Wow! Excellent! I am doing a game myself right now. I am also writing a story - or rather description - of it as I play. I do that when playtesting as it makes the tedious job of playtest much more fun. I publish it on CivFanatics, if you want to give it a look. Forums.civfanatics.com That must be the Elchers Clan you're talking about. They used to be very similtar to the drunken Dal, but I made the Elchers stand out a bit with better units and so on.

Thanks. Most units are downloadable on the CivFanatics database. Some units are really cumstom-made for this mod too and a whole bunch have received completely new reskins for this mod. To get the landscape to look like this, you need BlueMarble, which makes terrain graphics look cooler.

Nice! You probably have the nicest units ever for Civilization IV. Those Napoleonic ones are just awesome. I use some of your units, Walter Hawkwood, in my own mod too. I can't wait for the BtS version of this one. Excellent job!

Hähä. Snyggt! I'm currently working on the Imperial Scenario The Great War where you will play the Evil side. In that one you will have all the other dark nations as allies and you will take on the rest of all the nations in Fairy Tale. It plays on a 100x100 map, so it should pose quite a challenge.

Hi. You need Civ IV and Beyond the Sword patched to 3.19. If you want links to get those, I can post them here, so just tell me if you need them. Also, I recommend Blue Marble, but that one is very much optional. Playing the Collective is actually the most fun. Try them out in the scenario "The Collective War" first, where you get to conquer and destroy the entire civilized world. It's always more fun to be the destroyer, innit? :)
