Tint fix for Terrain

Post by Loewenherz » 14 Oct 2018, 12:10

Hello everyone,

here is a little fix for the winter tint thing in EE2. Its is so, that in december, january, february and march the game let disappears the tint terrain in all climates. For Mapper like me, is that a stupid feature. This files fix it.

Install:

Unpack the files under: Empire Earth II\zips

Uninstall:

Erase the three files or the unpacked folder.

Note:

This fix is not supported from the unofficial patch. Maybe is it supported later. I have release this fix, because I want to archive the work here, and to give other user the possibility to test the fix.

Sorry, this currently can't be added to Unofficial Patch 1.5.
I'm trying to avoid files that need to be unpacked directly in "zips" folder. If it was possible to use db_155.zip - it wouldn't be a problem, but when a new file is created it might cause huge troubles for game stability or in case we wanted to revert this change - a lot of installation issues / version incompatibility problems could happen (for example some antiviruses block file-deletion as "ransomware" behavior). This could cause problems forcing people to re-install the game in order to be able to use Multiplayer, etc.
It's better when such modifications are available externally, especially because we didn't miss this feature for the past 13 years.

This is not the final decision, maybe in the future there will be important changes requiring climate file structure change in UP1.5. Then it should fit with no problem, but for now too much work for a change that might not have much interest.

It's good to have this topic and read players feedback thought.
