The Great War mod is a total conversion modification for Napoleon: Total War. It creates an authentic representation of World War 1-era tactics, strategies and general warfare within the game. Including stunning new visuals that include entirely new models and textures for equipment, vehicles and more, the mod immerses you into the era with brand new gameplay unlike anything you've experienced in Total War before.

That's quite clearly not a bug... but a problem with your installation.

Is it? That's odd. After the 5.0 original. I deleted all the Great war files and freshly installed the 5.1 Full version.

Well without being blunt, the mod does have text else everyone else would complain of this issue.

So it's either a installation issue or a launcher issue which in itself is usually due to an installation issue.

Have you tried the manual launch method? That works for everyone who usually has these kind of problems.

No, I just fire up the launcher and load in through that way.
How do I launch it manually?

Firstly try the new launcher within this patch first, as it might work for you now.

But if not then this is the thread on the manual installation and launch:

May seem daunting but its really quite easy.

Like i said I make have jumped the gun, I also assumed my Moddb told me these comments were 12+hours ago so I figured it was uploaded.

Is the launcher just an extractor program or does it download updates?
