View Full Version : Adding Roman names
January 20th, 2004, 05:55 PM
Hello, I saw a post in the gone gold forums where an attempt was unsuccessfully made to add Roman names to the game. Has anyone here tried or actually accomplished this? I am waiting to receive the game but would definitely want to edit the names. Any help/advice would be appreciated.

Hi Five Angels, thanks for your support of the game!
Yes, the "names.txt" file can be freely edited, and a later attempt by Bill Harris (Night Call writer) at Gone Gold was successful. He may let you have it if you e-mail him.
The only things to keep in mind are: The number of names in the file has to be kept the same, the formatting has to be the same (carriage return after each one) and the name of the files have to stay the same, and no commas should be placed in the file. Make sure to back it up just in case.
The other game-used text files may be edited the same way if you wish, as well as the pics and sound effects. I remembered that many long-time Shrapnel fans love to tinker with game files.

Thanks for the quick response, having played pace empires for a long time I have gotten in the habit of changing things-thanks.
