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 Rhún
  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 Dúnedain
  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 one and all!

We have had countless reports of people not getting the mod working. Over on TWC we have detailed instructions and a very active community. Here on ModDB we only have the latter so here are the fixes to all your problems.

  • You must not use your computer when you download OR install DaC and all of its patches.
  • Some of the patches do not download in a '.exe' format. This means you cannot run them and so they don't work but all you have to do is change their extension to '.exe'. If you are unsure how to do this, then just google the following "change file extension". It is remarkably easy and will fix the problem.
  • You MUST disable UAC AND delete your virtual store entry! This is why it doesn't work for most people. Windows stores the file set up of your previous version in case of crashes BUT this means it doesn't let the new changes take effect and so the game crashes. Ironic right? To disable UAC and delete virtual store click on this link and follow the instructions in the first post: ElvenKind's Installation Guide.
  • Of course you must also run the cleaner as it says in the information of all of the files of DaC.

If you do all of the above, the game will work. I guarantee it! This applies to Steam and non-Steam. Now if you have any problems, post on the main page of DaC. NOT in the comments of any of the news articles or pictures or downloads.

I am the only active member of the team who uses ModDB and I am eternally grateful to those of you who answer peoples questions. You help me out no end! I do read ModDB almost every day so your posts don't go unnoticed. This article should now solve everyone's problems and I expect all of those who have issues to have done the above before saying they have an issue.

The lorien faction was made by a mod called Forgotten Realms of Middle-earth. They were the first to split the vanilla 'Silvan Elves' faction into Lorien and Thranduil. They then made new models for Lorien and used the existing models for Thranduil. We just copy and pasted their work into DaC.

Hi there.

Got myself totally confused should i download this version or one from TW center? Or are they actually the same, though TW center one has a lot less files to download. Thank you.

TW center links you back here unless you click on the alternative download. You need the thread that is linked at the top of this page. DaC is getting on for 6 years old and any thread before the one above is completely outdated.

Quick question why do we need to use a different computer when downloading DaC?

You don't need to use a different computer, the instructions say don't use your computer while it is downloading DaC. By this I mean don't peruse the web, don't play a game ideally, don't do anything. Click download then leave the pc to it.

i have played this mod since it came out and i have to say you have done an amazing job. but i was wondering if the create unit still works. im trying to spawn a bunch of people in the helms deep and none of the unit id's work.. just a quick question because i wanted to make a giant siege.

there is a file that lists all units and their ids. Some are predictible though, so like rather than "Uruk-Hai Swordsmen" you could say Isengard Infantry Swordsmen or somehting like that.

go to third age icon, right click to open file location, go to data, seach for export_descr_unit
