    Default In EBBS - Roma or Rome ?

    Hi.

    In the EBBS_SCRIPT.txt file, there are many conditions about the city of Rome like:

    Code:
    monitor_event SettlementTurnStart SettlementName Roma (...)
    However, I think the correct variable is Rome not Roma:

    - In the descr_regions_and_settlement_name_lookup.txt the name is Rome;

    - In the CAMPAIGN_SCRIPT.txt there are only references to the variable Rome and not Roma

    - In the DESCR_REGIONS.txt the city of Latium2 is Rome

    The only places where the name Roma is used is in the files:

    - barbarian_invasion_regions_and_settlement_names.txt (if using BI)
    - imperial_campaign_regions_and_settlement_names.txt

    AFAIK these 2 files just above only control the names that appear in the map.

    I made a test and apparently the name Roma is not recognized, but I would have to make more tests to confirm that we are facing a bug. I'm pretty sure it is, unless you have more info that I don't have.

    Did someone noticed this too?

    I've searched out this earlier, resulting in the typo fix that is incorporated in 0.81a V2. It's tricky knowing which file is the master when it's spread out everywhere... My belief is that EB/Data/text/imperial_campaign_regions_and_settlement_names.txt is the master which the rest of the files must match. The trick here is that some commands use internal settlement name, and some use display name. Rome has internal name Rome and displayname Roma, so everything *should* be ok.

    Having problems getting EB2 to run? Try these solutions.

    Ok. I went searching in archives and found someone saying that in EBBS, you must use the display name (that appears in the campaign map) and not the internal map.

    This is incredible indeed...

    Thanks for your info.

    That's just wrong. As bovi says, i depends on the command being used.

    To expand on Atilius' post: all conditionals, with the exception of SettlementName ask for the internal (in this case Rome) settlement name.
