  1. Download all parts to the same folder
  2. Run the TheSundering.exe and let the installer do the job
  3. Make sure the path is correct (C:\Program Files (x86)\SEGA\Medieval II Total War\mods\The_Sundering) or wherever you have installed your game.
  4. If you are using Steam be sure to follow this tutorial to get the mod to work.

Problem: When I launch the executable it runs vanilla M2TW
Solution: You have chosen an invalid installation path. Please, reinstall the mod and make sure it's on it's properly folder.

Problem: Whenever I try and install the mod, a prompt requesting Disk 1.
Solution: Make sure the installation file's names are correct. They must be TheSundering_0_69.exe, TheSundering_0_69-1.bin, TheSundering_0_69-2.bin, TheSundering_0_69-3.bin and TheSundering_0_69-4.bin. Perhaps some of them have been changed to TheSundering_0_68-1.bin(1) or other name.

whenever i play the campaign, about 3 turns in eataine is destroyed. a few turns after that, cothique and chrace get destroyed too. Could this get changed somehow? with all these factions getting killed off so quickly, it makes the war against nagarythe alot harder
