    Do you have a savegame again?

    Also, what do you suggest should be done with the nation relations? Should probably be included in the main modpack files too. :yes

    I packed 3, one right before sailing back, one having arrived in Kingston and the latest (using the meantime, being "usefull" for old friends of mine :D)

    To the realations matter, its a problem I like to solve for COAS aswell, including a "narator" window in the interface for editing global conditions during a game such as the nation relations (if there could be no script, following the diplomacy according to a story or history itself) or certain other events like sieges or small skirmishes, that would generate more long term motivation

    EDIT: forget the kingston file, I mixed something up, use the one from antigua and go directly to bridgetown

    I just went to the Bridgetown Naval HQ and met with Captain Sawyer just fine, then was told that France signed a peace treaty.
    So seems to work fine to me. You might have to ensure you arrive there during day-time though.

    For the nation relations, I now added a line to this case to REALLY set France and England to neutral.
    Where is Spain supposed to turn neutral? Then I can add that too.

    We do have the Changing Nation Relations mod that randomizes things. Not historically accurate, but interesting nonetheless.

    The last try worked out, maybe I missed a locator or somewhat, but there should be no Cpt. Sawyer with the Mutiny start dialog, we remember that he should have been killed on the renown by spaniards o_O

    Spain should become neutral ("quasi hostile") during the "examination for leutenant" - mission

    Indeed that did have me a bit confused. Did you get that too? :shock

    Wished I knew the actual quest case for that. Haven't played through it all myself.
    One day I want to play through ALL the stories and smooth out the rough edges wherever I find them.

    That "Sawyer dejavu" happend to me aswell

    You can turn the spanish neutral right at the mission beginning and hostile when they attack with that fireship during the exam, that seems appropriate to me

    I suppose that will have to wait until I actually play through it. Otherwise I don't think I'll find the appropriate spots.

    Are you sailing to Kingston Naval HQ after the Antigua Land Battle. ? :confused:


    According to the walk through the last time you visit Kingston is just before you go to Antigua for the Land Battle :read

    After the land Battle you go to Bridgetown Naval HQ

    :cheers

    UGH! You're absolutely right. More initModels errors.
    This time they WERE in there, but with n++; instead of AddCharacterModel(model); . Oops. :facepalm

    Recommend opening PROGRAM\console.c and finding;
    Code:
    void ExecuteConsole()
    {
       ref pchar = GetMainCharacter();
       ref ch;
       int i;
       int limit;
    
    Below this, add:
    Code:
      ch = CharacterFromID("Thomas Wolfe");
       SetModel(ch, "WolfFrench", DEFAULT_ANI, DEFAULT_ANI, MAN_HEIGHT, true);
    Load a savegame BEFORE the location where you get stuck, press F12 and then continue.
    That should get the guy to show up again.

    Right within the following auto-sequences, the next error! The hole game stops after Wolfe talks to me in the cell and the action should jump to the beach again, black screen, couldn't even save inbetween :(

    If that "erroring" keeps going on like this, I fear I'll have to skip and mark it as unplayable, although some say they went through it, but in all these year there have been so many changes in the game components, that you may face much more storyline-scripting conflicts...

    Looks to be again model-related. Yesterday's error applied to several more Hornblower models, which could be messing things up.

    I think the reason for this cropping up now is because the new model system is less forgiving for missing initModels.c entries than the previous system.
    So while before, the errors did occur, it also still worked well enough to be able to continue. But not anymore.
    In a way that is a GOOD thing, because at least we notice now and can fix it.

    At this point, the best might be to extract attached file to PROGRAM\Models , then open PROGRAM\InternalSettings.h and set ENABLE_CHEATMODE to 1 at the bottom.
    Start a NEW game on the Hornblower storyline and find C.S. Forester in Antigua Port when the storyline opens. He stands just past the governor's mansion.
    He allows you to skip to various parts of the storyline. This will allow the model to be updated properly and hopefully get you through properly this time.

    Several of us played through this storyline successfully 2-3 years ago with varying problems. Some had lots and some had very few. I had few problems till the end. That was buggy.
