Kingdoms Grand Campaign Mod is a huge expanded campaign for Medieval II Total War Kingdoms expansion. The mod focuses on increasing the size of the Grand Campaign. Which includes a huge new map, 7 new factions, and all the units from Kingdoms. The challenge is also a lot greater and the mod includes improved battle AI and campaign AI. And is quite possibly the hardest mod for Medieval II Total War.

First of all, we are way past 4.1 on TWC. ModDB sadly does not have the files. But the developers have uploaded it to mediafire, why they don't simply upload it here is beyond me.

Step 1 - Download the installer .exe with the base mod files: (Steam cant find kingdoms, below for info)
KGCM 3.0 download link: Mediafire.com

Step 2 - Install patch 4.2 to the folder containing your Kingdoms.exe file:
KGCM 4.2 download link: Mediafire.com

Step 3 - Install patch 4.3 to your ...mods\kingdoms_grand_campaign_mod folder:
KGCM 4.3 download link: Mediafire.com
KGCM 4.3 alternate link: Filedropper.com

Some fixes for after completing the above
(I have not installed these myself but will probably do so in the future)


Installation Instructions for the Installers

Steam users will most likely have to do the Steam Instructions before installing.

3.0 - Is straight forward, just click next on all of them.

4.2 - Point to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Medieval II Total War
(Your's might be slightly different)

4.3 - Point to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Medieval II Total War\mods\kingdoms_grand_campaign_mod
(Your's might be slightly different)

Launching the mod - After installing everything, i was left with no way of launching the mod. So a little trick i did to make it easily available is the following

  • Go to \Steam\steamapps\common\Medieval II Total War\mods
  • Rename teutonic (or a one of the dlc's you wont be playing) to -teutonic
  • Rename kingdoms_grand_campaign_mod to teutonic
  • Launch MW2 using Steam and select Teutonic.

If you use Steam and have trouble with the KGCM 3.0 installer

Steam update removed the kingdoms.exe to fix this do the following.

  1. Go to \Steam\steamapps\common\Medieval II Total War
  2. Make a copy of medieval2 and rename the new one to kingdoms (Files are the .exe ones)
  3. Launch KGCM 3.0 Installer and install.

If that does not work, you're one of the unlucky ones and you will have to do the Regedit instructions.

WARNING:
If you do this and mess up your computer (and you can seriously brick it if you don't pay attention), that's your own fault. Read carefully.

Hit Start
01. Put 'regedit' in the run box.
02. Go to HKEY_LOCAL MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\SEGA\Medieval II Total War


03. Right click in empty space somewhere on the right pane.
04. Select New > String Value
05. Type 'AppPath' without the quotes and hit enter
06. Right click 'AppPath' and select Modify...
07. In the bottom box put your M2TW install directory. Example - C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Medieval II Total War


08. Right click in empty space somewhere on the right pane.
09. Select New > String Value
10. Type 'language' without the quotes and hit enter
11. Right click 'language' and select Modify...
12. In the bottom box put your language. Mine says 'english' without the quotes.


13. Right click in empty space somewhere on the right pane.
14. Select New > String Value
15. Type 'version' without the quotes and hit enter
16. Right click 'version' and select Modify...
17. In the bottom box put '1.03.00' without the quotes.


18. Close the registry.
19. Try the KGCM 3.0 installer again.


Hope all of this was helpful, i love this mod and i know the feeling of wanting to play a mod and it not working. Thereby also saying "Fuuud it", quit, slam, delete files, uninstall MW2 and never look at it again. So lets hope you wont have to do that.

If something is wrong or you want to add something please feel free to tell me.

installed with the all patches on Windows 7, works beautifully, I appriciate the effort and time spent on this.

However;

unbalanced campaign scripts. playing as Teutonic order. having 1000 hours in the vanilla and stainless steel, I just can't destroy Lithuania on this one. For example; I win a heroic victory next to my settlement, well you gotta go to enemy territory after retraining, right? well there is another stack just spawned out of nowhere. another victory. but hey. another one spawned with a general who has decent stats (that is an understatement) and marching onto my capital?!

Garrison scripts. I am okay with that.

AI can't go bankrupt. I was okay with that too until a full stack Polish army with 6 polish knights (knowing one polish knight having at least 200 upkeep per turn) and bunch of elite units besieging my settlement. that is not a problem. but they should not be affording at least 2 of them, right?

So I did some fixing on the script file and reduce the amount of gold given to AI fanctions in case of bankruptcy. kinda seems playable now.

I just loaded all three mod updates (3.0, 4.2 & 4.3) the game seems to start OK, but the graphics are off - map and city look fine, but the city name and boxes are very large 3 color boxes.

Anyone experience this?

Thanks

The mongol halberd fix seems to be missing, seems to just be linked to the no garrison script.
