Correct file structure for Binary Dawn 3.1
« on: October 21, 2017, 03:18:05 PM »
Can someone tell me the correct file structure for Binary Dawn 3.1 and in which order to put the patches (Yitzi 3.5d and Official patches) ? Thanks

So I just downloaded yitzi 3.5 - extract the files - paste into you're smax folder

Download 3.5d and move the .exe file into your main folder, make sure you replace your old terranx.exe with it

then download binary dawn 3.1 - open read me - follow instructions (which actually describe the above) and the specifics inside the read me tell you where to put what and how.

As for the "ai factions" - I think they are meant to be moved into the main files whenever you want to play against stronger ai's, but not to be used by the human player themselves. So you should make a copy folder of the 14 base game factions from binary dawns main files and put it in a new folder and call it whatever you want. You can leave the folder inside your smax group folder no text files will pull from it, but having them on hand will make replacing the "ai" improved versions easy if you want to swap back to the binary dawn 3.1 versions. So whenever you want to play against the improved ai versions just pick whichever 6 you want to face, drag them into whichever folded you have your text files the game pulls from and select the replace all files option.

Thanks I made a separate install for BD within my main AC Directory. Works fine. Like the differences in gameplay and makes for an interesting comparison.  The biggest differences are the units which are far more diverse than stock AC

The chief aim of their constitution and government is that, whenever public needs permit, all citizens should be free, so far as possible, to withdraw their time and energy from the service of the body, and devote themselves to the freedom and culture of the mind. For that, they think, is the real happiness of life.
