Amazons Total War - Refulgent

Parthian Shot Amazon Priestess Hierarchy


As this author is fond of saying: "If the word 'History', or His-Story, as coined by Herodotus, does justice to the human existence, it would record that 95% of human existence is actually Her-Story". For matriarchal societies governed much of the societal evolution of the human existence. As we know it more from the science of anthropology than from the study of "history", for history is a mere few thousand years of records over the hundred thousand years of human's societal existence. And history as records go, are often written by the victors over the vanquished, by the indoctrinators over the uninformed, by the mass-propaganda machine over the sheep flock known as the citizenry, aka the general public. One victim of such "scholarly study" is the stories of the Amazons: for in the world views of Herodotus and his contemporaries, Amazons are the people they don't want their womenfolks to be. And that sets the trend of the downward spiral, the trend that vilify women's leadership along with their martial prowess.

Amazons: Women With Names Tied To Horses

Never mind that the ancient horses with very few exceptions are almost glorified ponies, about less than 12 hands tall. And horse breeding people would know, and should know that, given the quality of the war mounts, women makes eminently better cavalry soldiers than men. And it is no surprise that most of the Amazons recorded by the Greek "Historians" kept the nom de guerre which have connotation to horses.

The Amazons Total War as a mod is unique in that it hypothesizes the plausible origin of the Amazons. That they are a powerful goddess cult governed by a sisterhood of priestesses. And connecting the influential temples of these goddess cults are the network of equestrian message dispatchers. Many of such temples might have been controlling the local politics and ruled its municipalities in all but names, Very likely these message dispatchers are junior priestesses of the cult. The network would operate in a fashion not dissimilar to the modern history's pony express in that it has maps and routes as well as the operators, but without the highway or road infrastructure similar to the messaging system built by Darius for his Achaemenid Empire.

So the Amazon factions in the mod, as well as those factions in the mod who can assimilate into the Amazon culture, must have the following units recruitable units from its municipalities.

Priestess Dispatchers


Amazon Goddess Theocracy Dispatcher - Mod DB

The lower level of the combat unit is the Message Dispatchers, formed in time of the war into a military unit. They are trained in peace time to be an effective combat team. Delivering message over enemy or unknown territories takes survival skills, combat skills, guise, cunning and guile. And the Amazon priestesses cannot manage such feat without proper military training.

Amazon Scouts


Amazons Total War Refulgent Elite Scout - Mod DB

The higher level is that of the Amazon Scouts, In the mod's storyline, the Amazons Scouts also double as the judge of peace, to punish those who presents a threat to the goddess theocracy, or to the community the Scouts are tasked to protect.

Amazon Pathfinders


Amazon Priestess Pathfinder - Mod DBAt

the next higher level is the Amazon Pathfinders, which is like a field marshal, an civic engineer, and a navigator all rolled into one persona. When a temple seeks to connect to a new territory or another temple through unknown territory, the Pathfinder is tasked to find viable route, with coded map and signal. She also needs to ensure the human resource for the operation of such a new connection to the network.

The 8.0J release represents the best release that matches this goddess priestess sisterhood.

I read this about a similar error:
"If this error appears during setup then the named pak file is corrupted or got edited. So you need the original stock pk files, either by copying them directly from CD into your main folder or get the clean files from internet or friends."
I verified the integrity of the files with Steam so they didn't get corrupted from there. It must be that the Steam pak files are different than the originals. So how do people with the Steam version of this game use Refulgent or am I missing something?
Thanks

We don't have enough in-house expertise on Chinese fonts, did you contact RenHen. He is a user here at Moddb, also an expert on how to install this on Chinese base Windows OS.

Perhaps you can PM him for more info?

BTW, he helped translated the installation procedure from English to Chinese, I heard it was an outstanding job.

I can try to contact him, thanks. So, I have an English version of Windows 8 and I don't want to play the game in Chinese. So is this still all for me? I guess so, right

So if I understand it correctly, you would like to to run Chinese version Amazons Total War with an English Windows OS?

Or you just want to run an English version of Amazons Total War with an English Windows OS?

Yes, English version of Amazons Total War with an English Windows OS. I don't know why I have to install this font but it won't install. It seemed like it had to be installed without it says it can't find mheib5_M_18.cuf in data/font when I try to run the game without this font installed, not that I can get it installed obviously.

I think your other software might have a requirement for such a plug-in. Can you make sure that the text folder under AmazonsTW-Refulgent in your RTW folder is English? as it is supposed to be by default. To make sure the text folder is English, all you have to do is to open the text files to see if all the description is in English, not some kind of Oriental text.

If it is, you have have to re-install the RTW software.

If it is not English copy the Text.en folder to overwrite the text folder and see if the software still complains about the font.

The text documents found at my

are in English.
I don't know what to do now. I'm using Win 8 pro 64bit in English and want the game in English too, no Chinese just to be clear.
Thanks

I read an old post of mine as well as the installation directions and realized that the AmazonsTW-Refulgent folder is to be installed, not on top of, but within the RomeTW folder in it's own separate folder. This doesn't seem to help the issue of the font failing to install. It looks for u_0.pak file to update and fails because it's "not a valid previous file" The mod doesn't contain this file, only the game itself. I'm still stuck, help please!
"couldn't find font file mheib5_M_18.cuf"

TY :) I gave up on my germannic campaign because of this, those romans only lost northern italy to me, now I can take the rest....

also, a minor thing I noticed, Im playing goethe amazones and I noticed with a spying eye that 2 thyssa generals were named as libyan generals with some placeholder text only as description.
and another thing was some missing pictures from recruitable soldiers from some temples I think as goethe, hmm. but only in one city I think... I will look that one up again.
and, Im happy that you have focused more on crash fixing, now Im not crashing very much.
Im happy that there is variation in hair colours, I just hope you keep at least a few black haired girls for each amazone faction, I noticed a lot of blond has been introduced. then again, when there is dark blond and white blond and that kind of variation that is fine too.
please keep the finnic archer recruitable from the forum building for that that should have it, Im so used to having them now;)

thank you for all you do:)

Hi, you need to run the Chinese font installing program came free with the download file.

Under the folder
汉化
Using this utility
罗马全面战争 全系列版本 中文语言包 正式版2.0

Hope this helps.

Sorry, only being to China three times on archaeological trips, my Chinese is not good, and our Chinese translator is no longer with the project.

Ok, if I renamed the font file to a non-chinese character name (and moved it to my desktop) I was able to get the application "罗马全面战争全系列版 本中文语言包正式版2.0" to run, translation of application's title:
"Rome Total War Full range Version Chinese language pack full version 2.0." Now I get an error part way through installing the font. It says that ui_0.pak is not a valid previous version and could not be upgraded. I've installing it into the Total War folder that I installed Refulgent on top of. I have the Steam version of RTW-Gold. Any other idea. Where am I supposed to install this font pack to? I think I'm doing it to the right place but I'm not sure. If I don't select the game directory I get a different error. When I try to run refulgent I get a font error still.

I've tried booting into safe mode, running it in WinME compatibility mode, and back-dating the file's date with a utility program, none of which has helped.
