Beyond the Game - Official Releases !
« on: October 10, 2011, 09:33:22 PM »
Dear all,
I'm glad to announce the release of our official, now COMPULSORY
Beyond the Game MOD :

Beyond the Game 1.00

It is 1.5 Go, so do plan time for downloading this (you might look at 1H, perhaps more if your connection is slow)
Note that you can download it while playing regular BTS, there is no problem with that !

This is absolutely super easy to install, and is a standalone, as such, games will be shown on the regular lobby ! (Of course you cannot play regular games with it, you will be tagged as 'MOD' and vice-versa).
Do advertise this on lobby by putting "BTG" in front of your game name !

Here is the manual, it includes an installation guide :
http://downloads.civplayers-files.com/civ4/BeyondTheGame.1.00.pdf

Here you can download it from our servers :
http://downloads.civplayers-files.com/civ4/BTG.1.00.rar

Any questions, feedback, etc, it's here !


EDIT BY ZHENON:

You may also download the BTG 1.00 Mod  (aka Penny Mod) via my google drive/ google docs.  It seems to be considerably faster than the C4P link:

Enjoy.

It would have been better if it had its own lobby due to many russian and mac players in particular showing up as MOD in regular games.

also the dl speed of youre server sucks  :-*

I can dl a movie in 20 minutes and this is taking freeking ages

so where do I put this then in the mods folder or somewhere else the instructions are difficult to understand in da manual

The CivPlayers FTP likely just got busy with all you guys D/Ling the mod, last night I got it at a steady 1.3 Meg per sec :p  I imagine that HostGator limits our max real time bandwidth somewhat.

Yeah i agree that it was probably just do to many players d/ling at the same time b/c I'm d/ling atm at a steady 10.0 mbs  8) God Bless the Silicon Valley and our reversing E&M internet access.  ::)

Ya I have Rogers 10 meg cable, but the bottle neck was my wifi actually, but that is ok, it's only 1.5 gig not like I'm reinstalling Civ5 off of Steam again :-/  If I want real speed I hook up my laptop to a Cat6 cable in my office.

Beeing forced to select theme at every start kinda sucks but i could live with it. But why the fuck do i need to additionally confirm that i actually want to launch BtG after i just double clicked the launcher?
I am happy though that some1 is cleaning up the bugs so we can have stable hack free games.

Theme dosnt change color so the .exe is useless could be because of steam not sure but I can live with the color it reminds me of My Buddy Lestat :-*

It launches faster with the civ4beyondthegame shortcut from inside the BTS folder placed on the desktop instead of the beyondthegame launcher shortcut since the 2 questions are missing

Ps. who picked the pink color was it Solver?

Try running it in Admin mode, sounds like windows User Access Control is the problem if it is asking you twice to run the program.

Launcher is there for people...with no clue.
You can change theme manually by dropping files (only few people know that).

Yes you can launch the game by clicking the BeyondtheGame.exe directly anyways

We're talking about the game background, the color of that bottom menu you see all the time. Not the main screen thing, Slaughter picked pink back then. It's an tribute to Slaughter really.

Game directory is called 'BeyondTheGame'?

So I d/led it and launched the game, but I can't see the games in the lobby. As for what lesty said, I too only have the pink background, and a notification appears saying something about movies. Now Enig said something to the affect of not d/ling it while having civ running, which I ofc did   So I guess tomorrow I'll d/l it with civ closed and see if it works properly.
I will follow you up on this, I want it to work for 100% of people.
Did you re-download and still nothing ?
When you launch the game, are you 100% positive your in the new game ?
You can tell because on the main menu, you should NOT have the titles Civilization Beyond the Sword anymore, the word sword is removed and replaced by a RED Game. Also, you have special thanks on the LEFT side towards Slaughter, Asaf, Primax, Solver, DTA & myself.

It says error video thingy

Yes it does, but you're suppose to turn off the options in player/game options/graphical option anyway.
The reason for this is that I just removed all videos of the game, to diminish the size of the DWL.

Anyone have a rapidshare account or something similar?  This was taking 19 hours yesterday.

I can start this by hitting the launcher directly inside winrar, it extracts and i can launch
and play.
but i cant make it extract the files permanently.

Any idear why that happens ?
