Mae Govannen!

I will say this first and last, MOD DB is only used as a hosting site. To see the latest information about DaC please read the first post in this thread:
Total War Centre
In that thread you will find a bug list, some extra information regarding features, a full changelog of work done and work included in the next patch, the most up to date pictures of new units and much, much more.

Divide and Conquer is the biggest Third Age total War submod of all time. After all these years we finally got a release again. It contains tons of new factions, units, scripts, 2d and more! Many might have played it already back in 2009, it has been in developement for over 4 years now, but that was a very uncomplete release by a completely different team. With an almost completely new team Divide and Conquer restarted the work almost 2 years ago and this is the result. Lots of new factions, units, scripts and 2d, all made and tested by experienced Total War modders.

Full Feature List:
  • All these factions AND NO MORE:
  1. Shadow of Mordor
  2. Remnants of Angmar
  3. Shadow of Mirkwood
  4. Easterlings of RhĂșn
  5. Haradrim Tribes
  6. Haven of Umbar
  7. Orcs Of The Misty Mountains
  8. Khazad Dum
  9. Kingdom Of Gondor
  10. Principality Of Dol Amroth
  11. Northern DĂșnedain
  12. Kingdom Of Rohan
  13. Vale of Dorwinion
  14. Dunlendings
  15. Vale of Anduin
  16. Dominion of Isengard
  17. Kingdom of Dale
  18. Breeland and the Shire
  19. Erebor & Iron Hill Dwarves
  20. Blue Mountains Dwarves
  21. Realm of Imladris
  22. Thranduil's Realm
  23. Grey Havens of Lindon
  24. Galadhrim's Realm
  25. Enedwaith
  26. Variags of Khand
  • Almost 200 new units!
  • 100% new ui, menu and faction symbols
  • A unique campaign map
  • Hundreds of exiting scripted events with unique event pictures and description!

Mae Govannen!

Yes your eyes do not deceive you, Version 0.5 has been released again as of the 29th July 2015. If you downloaded the Version 0.5 that was released about a week before that then you will need to download it all again. Sorry for the inconvenience but be pleased that we have many confirmed reports that the new 0.5 has virtually no bugs!

To that end, here I am to tell you all a bit more about this new 0.5 and to give you an easy to find installation info section. This is because if you cannot run the game it is because it has been installed incorrectly or you have not deleted your Virtual Store.

Alternative downloads to Mod DB can be found following this link and selecting the 'downloads' box:

Total War Centre

DaC version 0.5:
- You need a fresh Third Age Total War 3.2 installation (3.0 plus 3.2).
- No other DaC files are required. Only Version 0.5 Parts 1, 2 and 3.

1) Download each part.
2) Run them as an administrator in numerical order.
3) You shouldn't have to change the destination folder unless you have steam or you have moved it yourself, the installer defaults to where the game defaults its own installation.
4) With Part 2, when asked about 'read-only' files, click retry for all and it will work fine.
6) Done.

If the game crashes after you select your faction to play as then you need to delete your Virtual Store and here are the detailed Instructions for removing UAC and the Virtual Store:
ElvenKind's Installation Guide

If you follow these instructions and you delete your virtual store then the game WILL WORK!

Report to us immediately if you run into trouble but I have tested this on a completely fresh TATW 3.2 and none of the previously mentioned bugs showed up. Also, for me, the installer took just under 20 minutes in total including the time it takes windows to ask if you want to run the program. Let us know how your forays into Middle-earth go now and keep reporting, playing and enjoying DaC!

For changelogs, known bugs and extra info, such as the fact that the KD campaign is not yet supported, please follow the links around the page to Total War Centre. Mod DB is only used as a hosting platform not as our homepage.

I cant download any of the new versions cause there are no mirrors avaiable. I check every 10 minutes or so but none seem to pop up. Any suggestions?

Unless they have changed it, I think that is because Mod DB is not available in all countries. Please read the news article a few scrolls above this post.

Yes, as we have said many times, the KD campaign is not yet completed. If you play it atm you are at your own risk. Please follow the links dotted around this page to see the changelog and info for 0.5.

I've installed it over sega/medieval2/mods/third age but when i open it is just the normal third age 3.2. The last week i installed the previous 0.5 version of this mod with no issues, any sugestions? Also when i install the part 2 it doesn't show anything about those ''read only'' files you've mentioned in the installation guidelines :/

If it is normal Third Age then you have installed it in the wrong place. If you head to:
...SEGA\Medieval II Total War\mods\Third_Age_DaC\data
I imagine you will have another folder called data in that folder. or if you head to:
C:\SEGA\Medieval II Total War\mods
In there you will have Third Age 3 and a folder called data

Either way delete the extra data folder as it is useless. When the installation asks you to point where you want go here:
C:\SEGA\Medieval II Total War\mods
and double click on Third_Age_3 don't type anything and it should work.

It didn't ask you to overwrite files because it installed it to a place where there are no files.

I too am having a similar problem, I seem to be allocating the files to a wrong location when running the installation. I was sending them to C:\Program Files (x86)\SEGA\Medieval II Total War\mods
and even
C:\Program Files (x86)\SEGA\Medieval II Total War\mods/third_age_3 but every time I run the game it is just the base Third Age 3.2

I have been uninstalling and deleting the files of Third Age and DaC so as to make it as clean as possible.

Is there an exact folder location I need to chose? or is it something else I am doing wrong?
