Europa Barbarorum is a modification of Rome: Total War based on the desire to provide RTW players with a more fun, challenging, realistic, and historically accurate game experience. Europa Barbarorum is a total conversion, though it covers roughly the same time period as the imperial campaign included with RTW.

The modification affects all areas of RTW; all vanilla units have been removed, all new models and textures, a new economic system, new traits system, new scripts, and in general new gameplay. No area of RTW is left untouched.

This version of the mod differs in several ways from the Windows version:

  1. It bundles EB 1.1 and EB 1.2 together with a few of the fixes released since EB 1.2: it can be considered a 1.3 version of sorts. A single download should be all you need.
  2. It requires the Mac OSX version of Rome: Total War (by Feral Interactive) to play. It will not run on Windows.
  3. It is packaged using the DMG package format, rather than a Widows installer; so you can install it on the Mac as you would do with other software.

To install Europa Barbarorum on your Mac there are two Mac OSX packages available. People who know how to install mods for Rome: Total War on the Mac manually only need to download the data files (the mod itself). People who do not, will also want to download the Mod setup package which contains a program to install mods for Rome: Total War on the Mac. Please note that neither package was created by the Europa Barbarorum Team, and that we will be unable to provide technical support with installing these packages.

Download available at:

Known issues: video files (e.g faction intros) created for the mod may not work (correctly or at all). This is being workd on and may be fixed in a later update. Please report bugs and fixes (if you have them) in the Mac OSX packages to "Edwin@Feral" here.

Since this version of the mod was not put together by the Europa Barbarorum team itself, we are not able to provide technical support for this version of the mod when it comes to Mac OSX related problems or questions. Of course we can still provide support for purely mod-related questions and problems such as "what do I need to do to achieve the Marian reforms playing as the Romans?".

1.2+fixes are strongly recommended, they improve and fix 1.1; so be sure to install them both.
If you start EB using Trivial Script (with 'EB-Singleplayer') change the MinimalUI in the settings dialog, if not open \EB\preferences\preferences.txt and change MINIMAL_UI: to FALSE

1.3 is not yet released.

No, 1.2 is not savegame-compatible.
Trivial Script doesn't change anything in the game and is in the 1.1 installer.
