more parties / partynames : solution


#1

As requested on the forum,

I figured out a solution to have more parties and even country specific
than allowed by default ‘partynames.txt’ file.

[color=blue]
PLEASE USE MY NEW VERSION and readme:

viewtopic.php?f=37&t=9871&p=70004#p70004


instructions for Windows (old version only):

  1. download .zip , unpack all files into \Democracy 3\data\ folder.
  2. rename original ‘partynames.txt’ to ‘partynames__DEFAULT.txt’
  3. create link to bat-file ( ‘partynames__COPY-activator.bat’ )
  4. rename link to 0default____COPY-activator
  5. edit properties of link from target : “…\Democracy 3\data\partynames__COPY-activator.bat”
    change to target : “…\Democracy 3\data\partynames__COPY-activator.bat” DEFAULT
    done.

Pick your favourite language version : -en -de -fr
repeat position 3. to 5. for every country
e.g.
3. create link to bat-file ( ‘partynames__COPY-activator.bat’ )
4. rename link to 2france-fr____COPY-activator
5. edit properties of link from target : “…\Democracy 3\data\partynames__COPY-activator.bat”
[color=transparent]… change to target : “…\Democracy 3\data\partynames__COPY-activator.bat” france-fr

This will take you just 5 minutes :wink:


examples for link names:
0default____COPY-activator
1uk__________COPY-activator
2france-fr____COPY-activator
3germany-de__COPY-activator


Finally move all those links into an easy accessable folder of your choice.
Done.


For your next new Democracy3 game
just pick a county and double-click its ____COPY-activator link.
Its party data is now viewable and usable in-game :slight_smile:


partynames__COPY-activator.bat

[code]
rem: Any existing ‘partynames.txt’ file will be overwritten /deleted without notice!
rem: Please rename original ‘partynames.txt’ to ‘partynames__DEFAULT.txt’ before you start!
rem: Please remember to make your changes or your new creations only to ‘partynames__*.txt’ files. ( NOT into the replacable ‘partynames.txt’ file! )
@
copy /y partynames__%1.txt partynames.txt
@echo. done!

:END
[/code] ( You need to specify a country for %1-variable. This is done by link target parameter. See above. )


contents of this .zip (17Aug) :
partynames__COPY-activator.bat (Windows only)
partynames__uk.txt
partynames__france-de.txt
partynames__france-en.txt

I have decided to do this for the 6 basic countries (Democracy3 vanilla) :
U.K., U.S.A., la France, Deutschland, Canada, Australia.
Other countries are up to you.
You are very welcomed to post your country partynames here for us all.

Cheers :slight_smile:
