I've had added some events that have successfully fired. However, I cannot find where I can add text for a proper description. All that appears in the option box is ZID_33067_desc.

Where is the decription file?

Thank you!

All text goes to the lang_ENG.db file.
It can be edited with StringBaseEditor.exe

Also you can put the description directly into the xml files without addressing the text to the database.

I don't have the game with me but I am modding some event files. Can anyone tell me what is the sequence of play every month?

There are four turns per month, but what dates do the turns occur, 1st, 16th, 24th. and 30th? I cannot remember for sure. 

Thanks.

Thank you De Young!

Some more events questions...

1. oneTimeChecking="1" What does 1 equal? Yes or No?

2. Can I set the same event to fire for a set amount of turns? Such as, the beginning and ending dates differ will the event fire every turn until the end date?

<beginDate day="1" month="12" year="1941"/>
<endDate day="1" month="4" year="1942"/>

3. If I want it to fire every turn should oneTimeChecking= 1 or 0?

Thank you.

Actually that is incorrect. It's 7 8 8 8 for dates
The first of every month is always a new turn
It means it will check the event only once per turn, so use 1 hardly ever will there be a need for the program to check more than once per turn.

Yes, just use dates

Thank you. Oh so the "1" is just checking once per turn. I thought it was 1=yes 0=no or something like that. OK, so now I have it. Time to have more fun modding! Thanks for all your help.
