Part 3 - Installation Information and general information in the description below.
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.
For all the change logs, known bugs and useful information head to our thread at TWC:
Divide and Conquer
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:
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.
5) DO NOT RUN THE CLEANER AFTERWARDS. (IF SOMEHOW YOU STILL HAVE IT).
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.
