Changes with 2.8

  • Unbound the Wonder hotkey, so it doesn't conflict with other hotkeys when used for Palisade Gate/Feitoria
  • Changed the description of hotkeys in the hotkey menu to clarify which hotkeys to use for Palisade Gates, Feitorias, Battle elephants, siege towers, Genitours
  • Added the option to adjust garrison flags/blacksmith smoke for WK architectures, so they don't float in the air
  • Fixed some garrison flags for regular architectures too
  • Improved the detection which hotkey files are in use, with additional backups
  • Added experimental support for Traditional Chinese
  • Dynamic Loading of data mod list and expected version numbers
  • adds a profile for normal aoc if none exists
  • Fixed some small issues with independent architecture
  • Made some code nicer to read
  • Incas now get a llama on nomad when building the first TC
  • Cartography is auto-researched upon building a market as in patch 5.7
  • Included a No Wall/BBT mod
  • This patch also includes a (very hacky) auto-updater so that ideally, going forward you do not need to redownload future releases, but merely need to run the installer again.

This installer is intended for Patch 5.7+, which is still unrated while the patch is in beta. I would still appreciate any testing done to weed out issues :smile:

Thanks!

Is the Buddhist/Islamic monk disappearing bug still in there?

JineApple, you're amazing <3

@Ornlu that only happened when people installed WK incorrectly, when they put the new folder into the old folder.

The invisible monk bug should be fixed I you unpack the installer into a new directory and don't overwrite previous one.

Re: WololoKingdoms 2.8! (Auto-Updater, Updates for Patch 5.7

I renamed the folder (to WololoKingdoms 2.8 instead of WololoKingdoms) so the disappearing monk bug that happened when people unpacked into a non-empty directory doesn't turn up again

Re: WololoKingdoms 2.8! (Auto-Updater, Updates for Patch 5.7

If you set the Steam installation to Patch 5.7 before running the installer (you'll get a warning if it's not the case). Only certain fixes are included manually, otherwise it will always have the balance of the patch Steam was on while running the installer.

Edit: And there's the first opportunity to test the auto-updater. I didn't include the changed language files for the tooltips mod - Have a look if the tooltips are updated for 5.7 (E.g. Chatras giving +50 HP, Malay Battle eles being 30% cheaper and so on)

Re: WololoKingdoms 2.8! (Auto-Updater, Updates for Patch 5.7

awesome, especially the autoinstaller.
But WK 2.8 isnt rated yet, right? This would mean, that it's better to wait with updating WK.

Re: WololoKingdoms 2.8! (Auto-Updater, Updates for Patch 5.7

Thanks Poxo, linking would be an idea :P

Tanks, correct though you can also update WK to try out the new stuff and run the old installer again later to get back to the rated version. It would be good to have some testing done on the new one before it's rated, in case any bugs were added :smile:

Re: WololoKingdoms 2.8! (Auto-Updater, Updates for Patch 5.7

I've updated HD to patch 5.7 and installed patch 2.8, but now it seems I can't play anyone on Voobly who also hasn't installed the patch.

Is there a way to quickly switch between versions of WK?

Thanks

Change steam back to 5.6 and reinstall version 2.7. Thats the only way.

Re: WololoKingdoms 2.8! (Auto-Updater, Updates for Patch 5.7

dunno where to post it, but would t be eventually possible to make tradecogs (maybe even tradecarts) smarter? With smarter i mean that currently they always travel between the mkt/dock you selected for the tradecart and the clostest mkt/dock you own. Would it be possible to change that, so the traedecog/cart always travels to the dock/mkt it was build from while carrying the amount of gold the distance gives you, between the dock/mkt it was build from (not the closest one!) and the ally dock/mkt you are trading with. This would be so helpful when trying to use tradecogs (even if it barley happens). Well it could also help in case you forget to del an old mkt, but that's just an extra.

Maybe this is rather something for the Userpatch guys, dunno :?
