Leader Promotion Bug - 2/13/2020 12:16:25 AM

I thought I'd kick up ECW again for a little push of the pike, I'm patched to the latest. I had an issue with leader promotion and found the solution over on the AGEOD forum. Apparently, the model files for the promotable leaders has a syntax problem that hasn't been patched.

The fix is simply to go into the model file, located in the GameData\Models folder, for each promotable leader and add a '$' in the field TechUpg.

For example, the original model file for T. Fairfax, file 77PARTFairfax,mdl reads:

Change that to read

Then delete the model.cached file and reload ECW.

Of course, always backup these files before making any changes.

Here's a drop box link to edited leader files If anyone would like to try this

In the ECW\gamedata\models replace the 9 MDL leader files with the 9 from the first set in the zip. (a second folder has the originals if you need to revert because I did something stupid! ) Delete the Models.Cached file. The game will make a new one when it starts again.

Sorry I can't attach Zip files directly to this forum so I'm using a dropbox link.
