The Great War is a total conversion modification that brings the history, combat, emotions and overall feeling of World War One to Napoleon: Total War. We aim to completely convert NTW into a WW1 Total War game.
Version 5.0 of The Great War mod, original release version
1) Place the "data" folder in your download into your default, main Napoleon: Total War folder.
C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\napoleon total war\
If prompted that folders already exist, click "OK" and allow any folders to be merged, nothing will be overwritten.
2) Run the launcher inside the "The Great War" folder. (Make a shortcut on your desktop if you wish)
NOTE: If launcher fails to work for some unknown reason. Follow these instructions as a temporary fix:
1) Place all .pack files from "The Great War/Files" folder into your data folder.
2) Place the 'user.script.txt' in the "The Great War/Files" folder into your appData folder, here:
C:\Users\USER\AppData\Roaming\The Creative Assembly\Napoleon\scripts
Replace "USER" with your correct username.
With TGW 5.0, we are introducing a launcher and an auto update feature, which will keep the mod constantly updated with the latest bug fixes, feature additions and balancing adjustments. Just after the mod is released, we expect to work intensively in response to user feedback and our own extensive testing of features to ensure that as many problems are erased as quickly as possible.
