Just thought I'd mention this.

A bug is fixed in WeiDU v. 130 that applies the Multi-Stronghold patch correctly.  Uninstall the mod, update weidu, and re-install the mod to get the fix.

Really? I'm surprised. Was it that CHAIN thing?

No, it's the REPLACE with WEIGHTs fix.  It's actually in WeiDU-129 (and later), I was just being a bit lazy in my post.

BTW, I found the weights bug while I was trying to debug the Multi-Stronghold mod.  I was looking at the .DLG files before and after applying the patches.

Does WeiDU have a regression test target?  We could come up with a few simple tests to make sure these features work.

Sorry in advance for the maybe silly questions.
I may seem dumb... please do as if I actually were  ;)  :rolleyes:
(Better be safe than sorry...)

I just downloaded the latest (21) version of Ease of Use.
What I should do now?

- Do I really need to update weidu? Won't SETUP-EaseOfUse do it automatically when I run it?
- Do I really need to uninstall the previous version of the mod? Won't the "reinstall" option of the SETUP do it automatically?
- Whatever the answer, my next question is very likely to be "can you please tell me why, too?"

Forgive me, but I'm really quite a bit confused.
I never managed to figure out how this "reinstall" thingy exactly works!  :unsure:

You should definitely uninstall the old mod first.  The reason is that your backup files are in the old mods backup directory.  This might not be a problem, but it's best to be safe.  There's also the possibility the a component was dropped or renamed and you would want to remove it first before updating.

The Ease-of-Use mod (and all other WeiDU mods) use weidu.exe.  That is, weidu.exe is renamed to Setup-somemod.exe.  This is probably not neccesary, but if you want to you can download the latest version of weidu and use weidu.exe instead of Setup-mymod.exe.

I don't think this is neccesary for Ease-of-Use v21, but as a practice you could always install the latest version of weidu somewhere and run it like this:

weidu.exe Setup-somemod.tp2
