Topic Subject: Can I turn off the tooltips ??
posted 12-06-20 16:30 ET (US)   

I used to be a Caesar 3 player back in the day and only recently discovered they made a Caesar 4 on Steam. I've been playing this for a few days now and the popup tooltips on the main selection blocks on the right are annoying me. I know what the buttons do now - I don't need a popup every time I go near a button.

Does anyone know if there's a way to turn these off please ?

Thanks !

Sorry, I don't know. I suspect that you can't turn them off.

Although there is no menu item to disable tool-tips,
you can disable them by manually editing a file.

Look in your CaesarIV directory, for a file called:


Be SURE to make a backup copy of the file,
in case you run into any problems editing.

You can search for, and delete any line
of the file that starts with:

<String id="TT_

Those will contain the text for the tool-tip balloons.

I tested this by deleting one of the tool-tips.
When I loaded the program, and hovered over the item,
it did not give me the tool-tip.

If you goof something up with the file,
you'll see one or more error messages
when you start the program. Hence the backup. ;-)

Thanks TigerLAS. I hadn't thought doing of that.
