Thanks ParthianShot for a great mod.

I noticed a couple errors which I thought I would point out.

- The Amazon Archers (only available for the red Themiskyra faction) are missing skin and faces. I have only played this piece in Custom Battle, not sure whether it is also missing in the Campaign mode.

- When I start a Campaign for Themiskyra, and then after I close the program there is an error about incorrect placement of a city in Dacia (perhaps something like Arylia?). I'm not sure whether this affects gameplay or not.

best wishes, Alex

Alex,

Thank you for the bug sighting. The first bug has been passed to our animation lead to work on.

The second bug is not a bug at all, it is the oldest anomaly in the campaign.

We basically have one of the Amazon generals (Arylea) starting the campaign always with her high tech army on the fleet in the Black Sea. The story (refer to the Geothe Amazon's opening epilogue to what happened until the start of the campaign) has that her army was tricked by the Greek Cities into helping them and in the middle of voyage, their Greek navigator simply vanished, leaving the small army lost in the high sea. This makes the random factor of the game play extremely interesting, as the human player never know which shore Arylea and her army is going to land and what would the army do in that territory.

The game engine allows Arylea to start the campaign on the high sea with a fleet, however, during the location check, the game engine also sees that her coordinates are in the ocean (but never bothered to check that the coordinates are also co-located with her fleet) and the game engine then issues a warning, stating that Arylea is in an incorrect tile.

Alex,

Pea, our animation lead has just returned my message telling me that she double-checked all archers in Themiskyra and there are no animation issues.

This does not mean the problem does not exist, so can you describe to us what faction you were playing against while in the Custom Battle mode?

Hello Lisa and Pea,

Ah, yes, I understand about Arylea now, that a great idea.

About the archers animation... I just checked again (8.1K and also the previous version I had), and I still do see the glitch.

For example, I just did:

- Custom Battle
- map = Italian Lowlands (but seems to be map independent)
- Themiskyran Amazon (human controlled) vs Libyan Amazon (computer controlled)... but I've seen it versus other opposing factions too
- Themiskyran unit: only one Amazon Archer, 250 dinarii
- Libyan Amazon unit: only one Libyan Amazon Foot Archer, 410 dinarii

When I zoom in on the Amazon Archers in my Themiskyran army, they have no face and no legs, but do have a torso, helmet, shields and ground shadows. The Libyan Amazon Foot Archers, and all the other units' I've played so far, have full bodies.

thanks for looking into this, and for making such a detailed and innovative mod,
Alex

Hello Lisa and Pea,

Yes, those are the ones I am having trouble with... but obviously the trouble is on my side, I'll update drivers, etc.

Thanks for your help and prompt replies,
Alex

Also perhaps the problem can be caused by your download session was incomplete. We have had reports by players whose 7z utility does not very the MD5 checksum and the the download can therefore be corrupted.

Hope you get your problem resolved.

does this require previous downloads or is this stand alone?

Each new release is self contained full version, so you do not need to download previous release

You need to start in BI mode instead of RTW mode
