Almost forty

years have passed since the Duchy of Milan and the Republic of Venice agreed on the shaky peace of Lodi.
Now, with the invasion of the French king Charles VIII., This phase of prosperity seems to end with a hammer blow.
Doubtful claims on Naples and the Duchy of Milan led him and his many soldiers on the peninsula.
But he is not the only one who casts covetous eyes on the richness of Italy.
Although the Republic of Venice loses ground against the Ottomans in the Aegean Sea, they gain new possessions but at the expense of the emperor in the north.
He is just concerned about securing his Burgundian inheritance, must now also march to the south, if he wants to preserve the imperial authority.
At the other end of the boot, Sicily and large parts of southern Italy are under Spanish rule, which competes with the corrupt popes for power and land.
Located in the misery the Duke of Milan has actually lost the battle, it seems that his opponents are too strong. His only hope seems to be the dreaded Swiss mercenaries.
But they seem to have their own plans and won't miss their change to prove their power.
On the edge is the Hungarian Kingdom that arms itself against the onslaught of the Ottomans.

Strangest thing happened to me a few weeks back, i tried to play the mod once again and it claims kingdoms.exe can't be found.. Really weird since i've played this mod quite a lot before. Must have really messed something up on my end, every other mod seems to work just fine altough i did have some problems with DLV but another game cache validation fixed that. Any ideas on what could stop the bat from finding kingdoms.exe? I mean it's right there where it's supposed to be, and the mod was working fine as i stated in my previous comment. It's as if m2tw just simply hates all the mods i want to install, never had so much trouble trying to get a game to cooperate with a bunch of mods lol.

great mod but can you explain to me to logic of marines having
higher upkeep and cost than handgunners yet it's worse than handgunners in every regard?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

Due to their special sailors training and the high production costs for handpistols :)

i LOVE THE MARINES IN THE GAME, they look so coo with thier bandanas and dualwielding swords but PLEASE make them better at melee at least let them be able to beat the handgunners in Melee

We'll try to apply the RR/RC concept for any future version. It will be definitely more realistic next time :)

RR/RC?

Thats real recruitment and real combat concept.

can you have real recruitment be optional?
sometimes it is a real pain to march your diminished units across half the map, get preyed on by rebels just to reinforce the unit

Hmm.. no bad idea, I never thought about it enabling it optional :D
Thank's for your suggestion.

Yup still doesen't work. I'll try verifying my game cache one more time even though all other mods work fine.

Hmm.. what is your exact file path for the installation?

It's the usual steam file path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Medieval II Total War\mods\Italian_Wars
I'm really starting to feel like there's something wrong with my kingdoms.exe but then again i can only guess since i'm not really an expert on these things. Anyways thanks for the help this far, really appreciate it.

Okay i don't know wh it doesen't work with my kingdoms.exe anymore BUT i did manage to get this beauty running just by setting a launch option, incase anyone else runs into similiar problems just go to steam, right click m2tw, click ''set launch options'' and put this in it ''--features.mod=mods/Italian_Wars'' without the quotes of course. After this just play m2tw like you normally would.
