IMPORTANT: VERSION 2 IS FINISHED!

=======================================
1v1 ObZ Great Plains V1.1

by Aizamk for AOE3 (Non expansion-pack).

Special thanks to Mister SCP and Neur0n.
=======================================

v1: 9th August 2013
v1.1: 12th August 2013
v2: Coming soon!

===============
BUG FIXES: v1.1
===============

The "You Abandoned Your Colony" text will now always be hidden when you are observing.

Instead of two separate versions for recording, there is now only one, " 1v1 ObZ Great Plains v1.1"

Recording is off by default. To record the game, you now need to set the difficulty to "Expert".

Fixed a minor help text issue.

Fixed an issue with the 'console' re-appearing when viewing homecities.

=============
INSTALLATION
=============

Place the .xml and .xs files in My Documents/My Games/Age of Empires 3/RM

===================
GENERAL INFORMATION
===================

ES Great Plains set up for 1v1 observer mode.

Start the game in FFA. Using a flare activates Admin mode.

When in Admin mode, press ctrl+ 1-3 to set line of sight.

ctrl-4 (or strg-4 if you have a German keyboard) will toggle fog of war/blackmap.

===========================
"Record game" explaination:
===========================

Setting the game to expert difficulty will auto-record the game.

You will not need to check the record game feature - rather, it will automatically record and rename as necessary.

The record game format is as follows:

"oBs_xyz_Player1_Player2_Great_Plains.age3rec"

where x,y,z denote the civilization ids for Players 1,2,3.

1: Spanish 2: British 3: French 4: Portuguese 5: Dutch 6: Russians 7: Germans 8: Ottomans

This means that you can identify the recording by making Player 3 choose a different civilization each time.

=======================
"Console" explaination:
=======================

As an observer, 5 seconds after the game starts you have the ability to enter what I call "Admin" mode.

To enter it at any time, simply flare on the map using the flare button (found in the bottom left).

Alternatively, click on the flare button and press the 'escape' key.

In order to use various commands in the 'console', do the following:

WITHOUT opening up your chat box, type something in. It should be displayed in a black area at the bottom of your screen.
Once you are finished with the command, press tab.

===============================
---------COMMAND LIST----------
-------------------------------
'help': Explains some features.
-------------------------------
'x' or 'exit': Hides the console.
-------------------------------
'help music': Gives an explanation of a feature. Currently the only working helptopic is 'music', i.e. 'help music'
-------------------------------
'weather <snow,rain,clear>': Sets the weather on your screen.
-------------------------------
'updates <1,2>': Enables a resource counter in the top right of the screen which displays statistics for player 1 or 2.
The format is as follows: PlayerName | Population | Food | Wood | Gold
-------------------------------
'fog <on,off>': Toggles fog of war. Note you can also use the button in the bottom right of the screen.
-------------------------------
'music <on,off>': Turns on/off the game music.
-------------------------------
'playlist <1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9>': Plays the said file.
===============================

Alternatively,
Type '=' to enter playlist mode, then select a number from 1-9.

For this to work, you will need to:
Move your files to a new folder called 'custom' in the 'Sound' folder.

(i.e. the location should be something like:
'C:\Program Files\Microsoft Game Studios\Age of Empires III\Sound\custom')

Rename the files as Track1.mp3 ... Track9.mp3

=============
KNOWN ISSUES:
=============

If you have any custom triggers installed, they might cause the map to fail (though this is not always the case)

If it takes too long for a player to record the game, then like in all other observer maps the map may fail.
