Hi Im eric.
Congrats on making #8 of the Top ten this year!
Darn it loads okay by now it crashes when I try to load a battle....so I suggest doing what this guy posted
Heres the post:
"That's because the launcher no longer exist, and the kingdoms.exe has been "fused" with the medieval2.exe, which now is used by all games (vanilla, expansions and mods).
Ok, here's what I did: I unisntalled M2, and deleted the Medieval 2 folder from steam. Then I reinstalled it, I reinstalled the mods (in my case TATW+DAC). To launch the mods I have made two options: 1) I created a shortcut to the (new) medieval2.exe and added the command to launch a mod ( --features.mod=mods/Third_Age_3 ) to the "target" line in the shortcut properties. Using this shortcut launches DaC without problems. This used to be one of the popular ways to launch mods 2) I edited the .bat file included with TATW, changing kingdoms.exe to medieval2.exe and now I can launch the mod with it. Everything works fine.
Yeah steam made a new update the got rid of the vanilla Launcher... So to make the Game work again this is what I did.
First navigate to:C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Medieval II Total War\mods
Change back the folder with the Third age files to the name "Third_Age_3"
Then go into that folder and Right click edit the Third Age Batch file and replace "Kingdoms.exe" with "medieval2.exe"
Then open up the steam menu right click Medieval 2 in your game Library and go to properties Then select SET LAUNCH OPTIONS and paste in
"--features.mod=mods/Third_Age_3" Then Launch Medieval 2 and the mod will be loading... PS: to play normal Medieval 2 you will have to go back and delete the
"--features.mod=mods/Third_Age_3" in the SET LAUNCH OPTIONS
Hey I am getting a bug on my campaign where I have it set on manual manage settlements but for some reason when I try to move a general out of a settlement it turns on auto manage when it is supposed to be on manual??? Anyone know why this is happening??
