To: Mr Narhahahahahaahahahahahahaahahahahahahaahahahahaha.
Follow this instructions TO THE LETTER. I Mean do EVERYTHING as stated here!
Step 0: You may ignore the word SHIT/Shit/Shat that is mentioned over the course of the next few steps. You may try, but you may not succeed.
Step 1: Download Harpo's converter's zip file WITH Diplomacy involved.
Step 2: Make sure your game is updated. Vanilla should be @ 1.19. Entrenchment should be @ 1.05. Diplomacy should be @ 1.00. (You may check this by heading to C:\My Documents and Settings\My Shit\Local Settings\ApplicationData\Ironclad Games\SOASE [PLEASE NOTE THAT ITS MY SHIT -> Local Settings -> Application Data.
Step 3: Unzip Harpo's converter to your desktop into a Folder called "Converter".
Step 4: Go to your Program Files/IroncladShit/SOASE
Step 5: There should be 2-3 files there that STARTS WITH convertdata_(something).exe
Step 6: Copy those 3 files into the Converter Folder in desktop.
Step 7: Those 3 new files copied in your converter folder? add the number 0 in front of them before the .exe.
So its like convertdata_(SOMETHING)0.exe
Step 8: There are 3 folders in your Program Files/Ironcladshit/SOASE that are labelled GameInfo, one is in your install folder, one in Diplomacy and one in Entrenchment.
Step 9: Highlight all of them (if you can, if not use 3 windows).
Step 10: Select Copy.
Step 11: Copy them to C:\ReferenceFiles
Step 12: Launch The Converter! (I got an erection when I got to this step)
Step 13: Look at the top of it, tick "Conversion to" is set to "txt"
Step 14: Go to the folder dropdown, go to C drive, select reference files -> Gameinfo.
Step 14a: Select "3 convert this folder"
Step 14b: Select "4 convert the folder NOW GOD DAMMIT!"
Step 15: Repeat steps 14 to steps 14 for different Gameinfo folders.
Step 15a: Exit the program and smile.
Step 16: Well, there is a Step 16 because my favourite number is 16.
TIPS: Its best to convert ALL game info folders in your C drive, so you dont corrupt your originally installed game.
After you edit a file in notepad or notepad++, just copy it to your install folder or make it into a mod.
If you do copy and overwrite your original folder's gameinfo, do back it up and convert it back to Bin. (Steps 13 to Step 14 for BIN, its jsut 2 steps!)
