    Default Another patch?

    I just noticed Steam's updating ETW again. Anyone know why?

    Yeah I saw that, no idea yet why.

    However I hope they fix sommet soon, my game now crashes constantly and before it never did.

    Don't know why it updates all versions, but the german version is working again now!

    But it didn't fix my missing trade details in my prussia campaign...

    So I take it the speculation that it was a German version update is correct.

    Maybe it's a patch for the other patch. Because to be honest the second patch has actually managed to make my game significantly more unstable than it was before .

    I haven't launched the game since Sunday, so I don't have the patch(es) yet. In light of these problems, would you guys recommend turning off Steam updates before the next time I launch the game, at least until this is sorted out? It's been running fine for me except 1 or 2 random crashes, which happened when Steam popped up a window for some reason.

    I've had no problems at all before or after yesterdays patch. I haven't loaded it up since the newest one, so I'm not sure about that.....

    Yeah, this is strange. After the first patch, things started to crumble for me. Campaign map scrolls kinda jumpy, whenever I click a unit/city/port whatever game pauses annoyingly like it didn't use to.

    And now I got my first CTD as well. Reboot and the same happened when trying to click one unit (navy in a port).

    Hope they'll solve the first patch with the second patch (and the second with the third, Jeez).

    Even tho this is a bad example.

    When i played Star Wars Galaxies, Sony Online Entertainment, always seemed to break more in the game with their patches than fix. Kind of worrying if you ask me.

    Now I know CA is no where near as incompetent as SOE was but I pray that this is not a situation that repeats itself ad nausem.

    BTW, I still CTD when i try to start a Grand Campaign. 3 seperate clean installs, tossed out all my save game files, did the CFF Explorer fix posted by TB666. But the RtI works just fine, odd.

    [-]March 10, 2009 - Empire: Total War Update Released
    Updates to Empire: Total War have been released. The updates will be applied automatically when your Steam client is restarted. The specific changes include:
    Empire: Total War
    Fixed Alt-Tab issue which prevents players from switching away from a fullscreen window
    Fixed text rendering for certain resolutions
    Fixed localized font overrun issues
    Fixed a variety of crash and memory leak issues
    Fixed a variety of multiplayer client lock
    Fixed trade nodes for those nations with resource in home region which caused unprofitable trade theatre routes eg: Sweden and Marathas




    Are you refering to this one or is there another one after this one.

    There was another update but no notes were released on it as far as I can see. Most ppl are saying it was for the German version of the game.

    I'm still waiting for the vaunted Delete Save Games feature to be in a patch.

    It can't be that hard to do.

    I had a screen shot of it updating, but I didn't save it. Yeah, I got a message on about downloading empire total war, which changed a couple of settings which I did which happened this afternoon.

    Why not just go to

    C:/Documents and Settings/(User)/Application Data/The Creative Assembly/Empire/Save_Games

    then find the file you want to delete and do so?

    Of course you can do that but it is just weird that CA did not include a button.

    BTW, your sig pic is HUGE - and disturbing.
