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:

Mae Govannen!

A simple news update to say that our third beta patch has been released today, it is not without bugs but these are few and far between. Happy testing and do give us feedback regarding balance, bugs and your opinions.

For full information including a change log as well as a more updated known bug list please see our main thread here at TWC:
Total War Center

Lastly, of the active team only I monitor Mod DB so I would suggest if you do have a question first see the thread above and if possible post there. I will try and reply to Mod DB but I will not reply if the question has an answer or has been asked numerous times before.

Known Bugs:

  • Moria campaign is still unstable, we apologize for this (played at your own risk).
  • Some 'TO BE DONE' writing information snippets.
  • Dunland's hovering banner is Aztec and their end turn symbol is a Gondorian Tower.
  • Dunland's Recruitment may be a little unbalanced.Some ancillaries have no symbol.
  • No unique Barrow-wight general yet.Glittering Caves has no unique unit yet.
  • Council issued missions still use vanilla system, you might be told to take your (stronger) allies impenetrable fortress and other oddities.
  • Saruman of Many Colours is looking a little odd.
  • Orcs do not yet have raids on Lindon and Ered Luin.Invasions can be called as early as 15 turns in, brace yourself.
  • Umbar, Khand, Enedwaith, Anduin and Bree use borrowed strategy map army models.
  • Adoptions are rather frequent and rarely are they good offers.
  • Leo's Orocarni unit models and textures are yet to make an appearance.
  • Certain ports will block access for your ships along the major rivers (Gwathló, Anduin and the Carnen).
  • Some river fords will cause problems and crashes, try to fight on bridges or move off the river.
  • Some settlements have odd siege bugs regarding movement through doors or ability to attack walls, there is always another way in though...
  • Bolg's Champions have neither type of UI picture.
  • Isengard and Rohan balance is still a WIP
  • Dúnedain Wardens, White Knights, Haven Guard and some Lorien units have outdated UI cards.

Extra Information:
You must use Notepadd++ to edit any DaC files

I should also like to thank the users here who have answered people's questions on behalf of the DaC Modding Council, I am eternally grateful for your support and ongoing aid in keeping people happy.

For now, enjoy 0.3 and drop us all your feedback!

Hey, thanks for your amazing work. This game is so much fun to play, I've enjoyed every second of the game so far!

But now, almost 100 turns and 50 hours in, on the campaign map I get a crash saying "Unspecified error, game will now exit". I tried lowering the graphics but it's not that. It seems to happen when the Easterlings of Rhun take their turn to conquer Esgaroth.

Any suggestions on how to fix it or has this happened to anyone else?

I've got some more info.. It's actually something to do with Shadow of Mordor. In my game there's an invasion onto Esgaroth. During this very turn, the siegers, Shadow of Mordor, has a 10/1 advantage over the defenders and it would surely be taken by Mordor. There's just something that makes the game crash right here. Right when the turn goes over to Shadow of Mordor after the Easterlings. Maybe it's too many scripts running at the same time with Mordor conquering Esgaroth and Invasion ending, etc?

The game works if you install it correctly

Try uninstalling the entire Medieval II: Total War game. Uninstall EVERYTHING. Then reinstall Medieval II: Total War, then all the mods you wanted to play.

I also had to uninstall everything to get the game to work.
Best of luck, DaC is really worth it and so much fun!

Gandalf comes to the northedain after a time, the balrog is a non-movable general in Moria at game start and until the Moria script is fixed he is basically unusable at the moment.
