🌍 The Lost Update for Age of Civilizations II - Revision 5

Recommended Posts

Here it is, my next AoH2 project. This project aims to fix bugs that aren't rooted in the game's code. As such,
THIS PROJECT WILL NOT ADD ANY NEW SCENARIOS, PROVINCES, FORMABLES, ETC.
Basically any bug or error that I can fix will be in this unofficial "update", as well as any enhancements that I can think of. My goal is for this to become the basis for future mods due to the improvements I've made.

Currently implemented changes include:

  • Corrected the capitals in some scenarios.
  • More portraits for the existing leaders.
  • Removed Gandhi as he never actually led India.
  • Civ names now appear in white.
  • Numerous fixes for the localization, including the September/August bug and a crash for Belarusian.
  • Fixed a few misspelled leader names.
  • Fixed some duplicate cities.
  • Fixed the spelling of Edinburgh.

You can use this for any AoH2 project. You don't need to give credit, but you can if you want to make me smile. :classic_biggrin:

With the release of Revision 4, I've updated the Android app file to version 1.01584_ELA, a previously "unmoddable" version of the game. This was achieved by replacing certain parts of the app file for 1.01584_ELA with their counterparts from the previous version, 1.01415_ELA, and then adding in more files from 1.01415. With 1.01584, trying to mod the app file would result in Android refusing to even install the app. But with Revision 4, you can mod the latest version of the game with no issues whatsoever.

I can prove this is 1.01584 by comparing the classes.dex files of the different versions. On the left, you have version 1.01415, and on the right, you have 1.01584. Notice how the classes.dex for 1.01584 is 1 MB smaller than the one in 1.01415.

Now, let's compare 1.01584 with Revision 4. The classes.dex file in Revision 4 is a very slightly modified version of the classes.dex from 1.01584; the only changes being all mentions of Age of History II being replaced with Age of Civilizations II, and a corrected typo.

Lukasz himself said on the Apple App Store page for AoH2 that Version 1.01584 had bug fixes. Whatever those fixes were, they are now available to modders with Revision 4. Enjoy!

You can do anything with this. It's free to use.

Good but some cities' growth still incorrect 

It's probably how Lukasz set them up. Unless you're talking about patches of 100% growth here and there. (although I'm certain I fixed all of those)

@Chairman Baad I told you add sky and you showed me a picture of sky's head got crushed. You are surely the worst person I have ever met on forums.

Man, just shut up and think about yourself for a second. All you do is troll, talk about FNF, and piss people off. All I hear from you is Sky, Sky, Sky, Sky, SKY!!! You shared a mod full of Sky porn and even posted porn on a mod thread where Marwan saw it and got creeped out. Your justification for posting NSFW art on the forums? "Sky is 19 so it's OK." What the hell, man?! Just because Sky is of age doesn't mean you should post porn of her on the forums! You shouldn't post porn period!

Even worse, you're making people think that I'm you and that Dolphin General is you. I keep getting private messages saying "stop it chairman baad" or "No more fucking sky posts chairman" because of you, and Dolphin told me he gets those messages as well. He even said he almost got BANNED because of your actions. It doesn't help that your previous account's name was DULPHUN GOONOOROOL. It's like you're trying to get him in trouble for things you did. And you're still trying because your current account is still named Dulphun instead of having an original name. I know Dolphin likes making alts, but you took that fifty steps too far.

In conclusion, you claim that I'm the worst person on the forums when you have trolled, posted porn, disturbed everyone, nagged modders, and gotten me and Dolphin framed for it all. So shut your mouth, realize that you will never see the Sky mod again due to the porn you keep spreading, and get the hell off the internet, you sociopathic cunt.

      TCBC was a very niche mod that only catered to my own interests. It was meant to be a personal mod that I could enjoy myself, and then give others a small chance to enjoy. But as time went on, I quickly became too stressed out and depressed to continue developing my mod any further. I didn't want to make updates or create any new content. I also had barely any time for development when I had several other projects and life events going on. But I have observed the behavior of some community members towards other modders who haven't yet released or updated their own mods. Some would simply ask "Release date?" or "Update?" Others would add a few more words: "When is the mod being released?" or "When is the next update?"
      But the worst I have seen comes from the people who bash and harass the modders and try to rush development. This has been happening to ivr17, the creator of Addon, in an effort to get a beta or an early release. This kind of attitude towards the people who place their blood, sweat, and tears into the content they serve you is nothing short of rude and disrespectful. As a community, we need to acknowledge that harassing modders to try and get a release date or update just cannot and should not be accepted. This is something I never want to deal with, and so in not being able to make any new updates, I felt like I would end up facing the mob. So with my lack of time and will to make updates, combined with the playerbase harassing other modders for updates and releases, I had no other choice but to only develop for myself from now on and kill the mod for everyone else. 
      Unfortunately, even after the deletion of the TCBC thread, I continue to receive messages about the mod. "Re-release TCBC". "Bring TCBC back". "Please go back to TCBC mode @Chairman Baad". But the truth is that the more I receive messages like this, the less I want to re-release the mod. It didn't have a ton of scenarios. It didn't have a lot of formables. There were barely any events and most of them felt unfinished. I felt like I didn't even have something worth releasing anyway. So why even bother with these requests? Other mods can provide the same sense of satisfaction that TCBC did, but on a much greater scale. Developers can put out more content in a week than I can in a month due to my lack of time. I have no place in a community saturated by mega-mods like Conquerors and Bloody Europe. And if I do release the mod, Addon and Age of Imperialism will wipe out any hope of its survival. 
      But this can be accepted. 
      I mentioned at the start that TCBC was a niche mod. It was only created to pique my own interests. A mod like that should have no hope of becoming popular with the community. That's why I could embrace this if I wanted. I could state something like "hey, this mod was only made for my own interests, so you might not enjoy it as much as other mods" in the mod description. And even if the game is dead/dying, a lot of what I do is related to dead games anyway, so modding this one turned out to be right up my alley.
      But even if I announce the purpose of the mod, what would stop people from trying to force me to make updates? The answer: Silence them completely. If I post in the Mods subforum, I have no control over the people's messages. But if I post in this club, I can lock my threads to stop people from nagging me and chanting "update" over and over. When you're dealing with a crowd of impatient players, going full 1984 on them might be your only escape. And that's exactly what I'm gonna do. I don't care if people don't like it. If you're gonna shout at me to release updates or put out more leaks, then I'm not even gonna bother with you.
      There are a few more problems before I can re-release my mod, but I can't solve them all on my own. I need everyone's co-operation for these last few.
      From MYSELF:
      I need more time to finish the stuff I implemented during private development. I have a couple events with missing loc, and I'm planning to replace a scenario. Once I get all that finished up, then I can put up a new download link. But that's the most I'm willing to do. Updates for the mod depend on everyone. From the COMMUNITY:
      We all need to stop nagging modders for updates and release dates. Even a simple "update?" repeated often could get to someone, as it did for me when I saw it happening to others and became worried for myself. Think of it this way: Questions about updates and release dates only take time away from development since a modder will have to answer the question to avoid people assuming the worst. From the MODDERS:
      It is clear that Lukasz won't update AoH2 any longer. That means he won't fix any of the major bugs in the game. But there are more and more modders who are accessing and editing the code directly! If we try hard enough, we can fix the bugs and make AoH2 greater than it ever was! The most critical one for TCBC is the event save bug. That's the one where saving and reloading a game clears all taken decisions, which can screw up "decision taken" events.  If all of us can work on these three things, I'm certain that a new Collection can be born. I say "a new Collection" because if I re-release the mod, it probably won't even be "The Chairman Baad Collection" anymore. But until then, instead of a new version or a download link, all you get is... you guessed it...

      This is a set of 17 additional sounds from HoI4 for use with Hearts of AoH2 or any other HoI4-styled mod. Like my previous sound pack, there are some sounds that replace ones from vanilla AoH2, and some sounds to replace ones you only hear in HoAoH.

      This is a set of 12 additional sounds from EU4 for use with Conquerors or any other EU4-styled mod. Some sounds replace ones from vanilla AoH2, while others were picked to replace sounds you normally hear in Conquerors.

      This is a set of 15 sounds from Victoria 2. It works best with a Victorian Era-themed mod. Unfortunately Vic2 didn't give me a lot to work with, so I had to make do with what I had. As such, a lot of sound files were simply copied instead of being all unique sounds. But in spite of everything, I hope this sound pack adds some flavor to your gameplay.
