View Full Version : ToolOne for anno 1404 Availibilty/compatibility help really needed!!!

09-01-2017, 02:03 PM
I have recently only just discovered Anno 1404 I am blown away what a game!
I have played it for around 300 hours how ever
My question is Which version of Anno 1404 do I need to be able to easily down load and install toolOne? OR Even better !! just have the ToolOne included in the purchase!
I am very cautious of just downloading the steam version as I know they do not care about little things like that and it may not be included.
Also I have already seen some confusingly complicated steam work around registry entry fixes for people with steam versions and it looks like the mount Everest of risky registry fixes.

I am not a skilled modder and need fairly layman's terms in a reply but I am a huge fan of tinkering I have easily done this with Big ini files in C&C , and used editors before, to change stats for Total war &
war game air land battle.

I am always far happier to just have a nice clean easy install and support developers if possible but I am worried ToolOne has not been made to work with the modern day re-releases of Anno 1404 ? is this correct?

Trying to get ToolOne to work has proved impossible and its begining to be less return for fun in terms of a 10 hour search and wasted hours so far.
I have even manually typed error box messages (are not copy paste able) in to German to English google translators which is how I got the message
" Das Set up hat fest gest ellt Das keineversion Von Anno 1404 installiert ist. Fur diesesUpdate muss beriets ein version der Anwengdun installiert sein. "

The installer as determined you have the wrong version or something?!

I went down the rocky road of installing R and RDA Explorer! and that is WAY to advanced and complicated for me and I believe may only be for viewing RDA files not changing little values in the game like the cost of flour. before I knew that ToolOne should just be sitting in my games folder..So you can imagine I was first very excited and then very disappointed when i could find no trace of ToolOne and my attempts to down load it have all failed with this message.

So I have the money in hand show which copy to buy and I will buy purely for toolone..I get a great deal of fun changing these things in game and testing them out.

any help would be massively appreciated

Find the gold edition it will have everything you need. Plus once you install it do the update 3.1 before you run it. Once you do that there is no key needed. The other part of the game that you can get for free is the Mod for the game.

Here is a link to all the updates. http://www.patches-scrolls.com/anno_1404.php
