crazykid Sounds great. I miss the Patrol command a lot. Thanks for easy instructions too.
ih8lag Has anyone tested this? Can u patrol in online skirmishes?
Botolf So if I pitch units in my scenario, will they stay pitched if players don't have this mod?
Swift Sampson Ugh.. the game crashes in multiplayer since I installed, anyone else have this problem? :( Exellent mod though.
Villi Remove the UI thing and it should work fine. UI mods for aoe3 v1.3 crash v1.4
Demon Lord Tyrus Great mod, but why does the editor crash now whenever I try to playtest scenarios?
