This installer works so well. I can play all mods no issue at all. However, I have a problem with GUI for 1920 x 1080 resolution looks so generic and terrible. I miss the original GUI that can found in 800 x 600. I remember the old 1080 patch containing the original GUI? What happened to them?

nope, it was always the generic GUI at 1920 x 1080 and only one that has been created. now the 1366 x 768 is a full original type GUI

Oh yeah, I remember it. It's been a while since I played this game. Thank you for keeping this alive longer. <3

HI! I just noticed that version 2.0.0 has been released. That is exciting! :grin: I still play a lot with the previous version so (mostly Ultimate Dominion MOD Large), in order to install this, should I remove the previous one or can they both coexist?

Can I keep my previous saved games and copy them in the new folders?

thanks and keep up the excellent work! :smile:

correct, you need to uninstall previous version before installing new version (even tools some command line prefixes changed)

no, UDM had changes that would make saves not compatible.

Open Of Game Goes Beyond Full Screen

Post by revincent »

I've played BOF since its inception, so I was excited to see this. However, when I load the game and tried to start, the majority painted off the edge of the screen which tells me I am doing something wrong. I couldn't see any of the functional buttons like starting a new game. Could I get some help? Thanks.
