New installation process to avoid crashes added below! UPDATED as of 2016-08/14! Russian Text-FIX in new download attached in the article- follow installation instructions in the article.
New installation process to avoid crashes added below!
Make sure you have Medieval II Total War Kingdoms installed, disable the UAC if you can and all that- then install the youngblood/enhanced version of Westeros Total War found here:
After the above installation you will have a better version of the original Westeros Total War.
After that is installed, rename the mod-folder from Youngbloods to "GoT_Enhanced"- then install version 3.0 of the GoT-mod found here:
Now you'll have the old GoT 3.0 version without the units and new changes.
When that's done you should download the v 4.0 of the GoT-mod and extract it to a location of your choice. Then you'll find an extracted folder named GoT_Enhanced, inside of this folder you'll find another folder with the exact same name- cut and paste the folder inside with the same name over your renamed GoT_Enhanced mod-folder.
You should now get alot of messages like "file already exists" etc- click yes on overwrite for all files.
This should give you the new version in a stable format. Then, you can play!
If you want the music of the show you need to also follow the steps below.
There are also a videos-submod that i haven't tested yet. Maybe you could try the youngbloods/enhanced version of it on your own risk- i suggest backing up your mod-folder first though.
We had hoped to save people from needing to do all of these steps- but it crashes alot i've heard when it's not installed the old way.
The russian text wasn't fixed it would seem- download my newly uped text-folder to fix that problem once and for all.
See instructions in the download page of the file or below:
"I've heard that the text wasn't entirely fixed. Remove your entire text-folder inside of your GoT_Enhanced Data-folder- then extract the content of this RAR-file to a location of your choice. This will create a folder named text and inside of it you will find another folder with the same name. Place the folder inside in your GoT_Enhanced Data-folder. This should fix the text-problem."
New models have been added to the GoT submod by VltimaRatio, and Mr_Nygren.
It is being released as 4.0 because the people behind 3.0 were unreachable, but they were looking for modellers so we're assuming this is fine.
We're not taking credit for anything but the stuff that's been added in this version, the base mod was still made by the WTW team and the GoT UI by the GoT team.
This mod replaces most vanilla units (but currently not rebels and mercenaries) with units inspired by the Game of Thrones series. They are mostly campaign recruitable.
Custom battle maps and battle banners have also been redone.
New Artillery for the Greyjoys, Tullys and Starks added.
New Marka-Horses added.
Strat map generals and captains have been delayed because of problems implementing them.
Regarding the music submod:
"This is what you need to do to get the awesome music to work:
1. Buy or download the albums of season 1 to 3.
2. Download the music mod found here: Moddb.com
3. Place all the files in your games data-folder.
4. Place each song of albums 1, 2 & 3 in the music-folder inside of your sounds folder- which is inside the data-folder of your mod.
5. Remove the "Main Theme"-songs of season 2 and 3, as it is the same as the first song of season 1.
6. Rename all songs to numbers from number 1 to nr 67. Don't touch the two songs from the music mod that followed with the download.
7. To be secure- delete the event.dat and event.idx-files inside of your sounds-folder together with the music.dat and music.idx-files.
Now you'll have a fully working music submod.".
BUGS AND THINGS
The new units are relatively high-poly and the LOD levels need adjusting. This, along with new unit sprites, will be in the next update.
Still, the framerate drop is not too bad unless the battles are very large.
Crossbowmen may be buggy in melee combat as they're missing a secondary weapon.
Bowstrings are not currently animated.
This will be fixed in the next update.
General unit balance may not be great, some factions may be over or underpowered.
Preview video of the new version of GoT by VltimaRatio (new models, pictures etc) and Mr_Nygren (helped with getting stuff into the game etc)- for MODDB upload!
This version wouldn't be possible if it weren't for user VltimaRatio on Total War Forums who created all the new models in the game. And i am happy i got to help him getting them into the GoT submod released in 2013-14 and based on Westeros Total War.
Westeros Total War is a modification for medieval 2 Total War Kingdoms based on the books. Game of Thrones Total War aimed to base the mod on the TV-series instead- but they sadly lacked a modeller and therefore made everything but that in the mod.
VltimaRatio has now created both strat-models and battle-models. The strat-generals aren't in the first release because they were hard to implement, and those we succeeded in getting into the game caused crashes after awhile.. So in this version you'll only have new pictures for units, new battlemodels etc.
But overall it's a huge improvement, especially if you also download the music mod and has access to the soundtracks of season 1, 2 and 3.
Me, Mr_Nygren, didn't create anything! But i did do alot of the textwork required to get this mod released quicker- It could have been done without me, but then it would have taken alot more time. Without VltimaRatio however, we wouldn't have this version of GoT:TW at all..
So it's mostly thanks to him =).
