Re: Changing saves directory

Ok, after some thinking, and as my system has become a total mess, I made the decision to reorganise the whole thing ... I'm shrinking C drive (where OS is) and will create a third drive (E:) where I will put all my games and other software. At the end of the day, I will have the OS on C:, the data ...

Re: Changing saves directory

IIRC if you delete the file UserPath.ini the game will put the saves as a subfolder of your game installation folder. Your game should not be on the OS drive if you have a choice, and NEVER in the ProgramFiles directories!!! Well, the games are installed by Steam so I don't have the choice of the d...

Changing saves directory

Hi, any idea how I could change the directory where the games are saved (I'm talking about WON but I guess it would be the same procedure with all ageod games)? I'd like my saves on a separate drive where all my data are. The reason is that I'm having lots of problems with my OS/HD and am obliged to...

Re: Can only save one turn

I'm playing a single player game. Whenever I save, the file overwrites saves from previous turns. It doesn't give me a chance to rename the save file.

Re: Adding music

OK, I eventually reinstalled Winamp and made a playlist with blank files of various length in the middle. The problem is to find the right balance between blank files, their length and music files.
But globally, problem solved. Won't try anymore to mod the music :-) :hat:

If you haven't saved your turn-plans yet, and you don't mind losing the plans you have already made, simply reload the save you just loaded, and everything will be back to the way it was before you merged the two stacks. There definitely should be an "undo" button. Same when embarking uni...

It doesn't seem to be working. The music settings file is as follows (below) and all tracks are numbered. So I guess that some other setting file defines the number of tracks to include in the loop (43 in this case). Just my guess too, not sure. ----- Music0 = NGC_Theme.mp3 Music1 = NCP_Victory.mp3 ...
