Firstly, make sure you have a working install of Medieval II: Total War with the Kingdoms expansion. Both Steam and retail versions work.

Step 1: Download the latest version of Beginning of The End Times on this page, as well as any patches.

Step 2: Unrar the mod using either WinRar, 7zip, or an equivalent extraction program able to handle .rar files. You should end up with a folder named COW_Beginning_Of_The_End_Times containing more folders and the files warhammer.bat and configuration.cfg. If it contains another folder called COW_Beginning_Of_The_End_Times, use the one that contains the warhammer.bat and configuration.cfg files.

Step 3: Drag that folder into your Medieval II Total War/mods folder, so it ends up Medieval II Total War/mods/COW_Beginning_Of_The_End_Times. Do the same for the patch download folder, making sure it asks you to replace files. If there is no popup asking if you want to replace files, you probably didn't put the patch so the folders match, try again.

Step 4: (Steam only) If you don't have a kingdoms.exe, copy medieval2.exe and rename the copy kingdoms.exe.

Step 5: Open the 4gb patch and direct it to your medieval2.exe in your Medieval II: Total War folder. If it patches correctly it will create a backup file in the same folder. Do the same thing for kingdoms.exe. If you get an error trying to launch the game, delete the .exe files and rename the backup files to medieval2.exe and kingdoms.exe, then try "Large Address Aware" instead. It's the same as the 4gb patch, but might not cause that error.

Step 6: Run the game by double clicking warhammer.bat in the COW_Beginning_Of_The_End_Times folder. If you want, you can right click on warhammer.bat and make a shortcut to put anywhere you want, so you don't have to navigate to the mod folder everytime.


Advice: Play only Long campaigns, not Short ones.

Possible issues: Many settings that affect the game are found in the configuration.cfg file, which can be edited like a text file. If you want banners on or off, change show_banners = false to true, or true to false. Also make sure the log line looks like this: [log]
to = logs/M2TW.system.log.txt
#level = * trace
level = * error
#level=*script* trace

Version 1.0 of Beginning of The End Times. It's still rough in some places, and it might need more work, but it's a pretty solid experience as it is right...

You'd be better off waiting a few more... somethings.
The 1.5 open beta is on the verge of release.

If you want to play it with the Youtubers that are putting matches online you need to go to the Warhammer Week discord and ask for the link to the developer version. (Discord is in the description of the WarhammerWeekEndTimes Youtube videos)

I don't care which are your top three factions or whatever! Don't you see? We are all doomed! Doomsday is upon us! Chaos is upon us! A power that cannot be stopped! All life in the universe is a fight against chaos, a battle that Is ultimately destined to be lost, fools!

My top 5 are:
1. Dwarfs
2. Dogs of War
3. Kislev
4. The Empire
5. High elves

Not necessarily in that order, depends on my mood.
I like most of the factions really, except the Skaven they **** me off.

I figured it out! CA is not going to announce TW:WH II this Friday, they are going to release COW:BOTET 1.5 there. That's why we're still waiting! You mods are sly dogs! ;)

Totalwar.com even shows the Lustrian jungles, where the Lizardmen live, the faction that is getting the biggest update in 1.5!
