I try to uninstall it and install it again. It doesn't work. Only the strategic map game is working.

It is important to mention that the in other mods like stainless steel or the original game, the battle mod game is working well. So the problem is something in this mod.

Alright, I saw this mod, and I love it.  So, I am buying the games just to play it.  According to the install details in the summary, this mod needs Medieval 2: Total War Kingdoms v. 1.04/1.05.  Since Kingdoms is an expansion, I assume you need Medieval 2 as well.  So, I'm looking at the Gold Pack, because its cheaper.  However, I've heard that Kingdoms in this package is v 1.3, which according to the install details is a problem.  So, does TATW work with v 1.3, or do I need to buy the games seperate, v. 1, and patch Kingdoms to v. 1.04/1.05?

Thanks, and please answer quickly.

I havent played v 3.1 yet but in the previous version, when playing in the campaign map if i attacked a settlement with less than four units in then when i clicked attack more units would instantly spawn. Especially in capital cities where it would make up the number of units to 20 with varying armour and weapon ratings and almost all with 3 experience including top teir units that the settlement does not even have the capacity to build. I found this incredibly annoying because my forces would suddenly be outnumbered. I thought that attacking weak points was a major part of total war games and this feature eliminates it. There is nothing mentioned on the changelog about this and i was wondering if it was still part of the game or if it had been adjusted and if not could it be toned down. I know it's probably to balance the game a little but could that not just be done by give the AI more money. I love this mod but this feature makes it very annoying to play.
Thanks very much.

@ cowsaresomething - Go ahead and get it it will work, also if you need help installing just look at my page here  it will tell you how to install everthing correctly...

@ krazymonkey101  - This is what they call "The Garrison Script\" and "No" its still implamented but its easily removable if you dont want it then do this :

Open the file


Find the line that says
;#################### Garrison Script Version 1.3 #####################
Remove everything below it until you find the line that says
;########################### MONEY SCRIPT ##############################

Save the file and you're done!

~~~~Hope This Helps~~~~

Ok, will back up the file and try it without and see if the game becomes too easy. Very helpful.  :D
Thanks for the support!

hi, the mod is awesome and i love it. all the factions are great but i think that Rhun could have more dark culture. at the moment it sort of seems like it could just be some middle eastern country for m2tw. its still great but yeah just a suggestion. i think that could help perfect it. :)

I am having a huge problem with this mod in that every time it goes into a battlefield the game crashes. This is both on custom battles and in the campaign.
It has occured since i installed the mod and i have not yet been able to go into a battle. Any help?

May 21 2012, 11:43am Anchor

Hi i just installed this mode and i love it. But when i go into a battle( campaign,custom, quick, etc) the game crashes. Is there a way to fix this?

Any help would be appreciated thanks :)

Is it possible to play this mod multiplayer? Me and a friend tried to play, however since he uses steam, the multiplayer service seems to think he is playing brittania, im not sure what mine looks like to him. Is it possible to play at all, i thought it could be feasible for me to do the steam trick for my britannia, so that the game thought we were both playing that and let us, but i havent been able to figure out how to do that yet...
So to sum up:1. Is it possible to play the mod multiplayer2. How would i do it?

May 27 2012, 1:28pm Anchor

okay obviously i'm not blaming the team for this: i've had the game since it came out on highest graphical settings possible and suffered no real problems, but recently it inevitably crashes when i enter a battle, even when i lower the graphics to bottom.
should i re-install the mod?
will i need to delete the mod before re-installing it?
could it just be my computer?
any help please? 
thanks :)

To all who experience crashes when entering battle; my fix (which I found at ) was to set the windows clock to not automatically update to summer/winter time.
Click your clock at the right bottom corner. Click 'Change date and time settings...'. Click 'Change time zone...' and uncheck the box with 'Automatically adjust clock for daylight saving time'.
Also, make sure you have Kingdoms updated to version 1.05 (or 1.04 - not to be mistaken for v1.5, which is the latest update for Kingdoms). I found the v1.05 patch here:  .

Also, I completely reinstalled the Med2+Kingdoms game before doing the above.

Hey guys, great job with the mod!
I only have a few questions...
First, I get these notifications about the one ring that its here and there (playing as the High Elves) and that I have to take over a settlement to get the ring but when I do conquer them even 1 turn after the notification I simply dont get it... am I doing something wrong or do I have to play with Mordor to get the ring.

and Second, sometimes when I get into some real time battles I get CTD but only on some maps. any fixes? or something like that?

tx for making this awsome mod, bugs or not its still better than most full games that are out there ^^

@henrikbendt Yeah I just re-installed the game and it worked fine :)

This isn't so much a problem but something which is bugging me. My favourite troops from this period have always been the rhun elite soldiers as portrayed in the movies. Much to my satisfaction i see that Rhun not only has them but several types of various weapons. However it seems either through mistake or unknown balancing issue they have incredibly low stats compared to their price and canon fighting talents.

The spearmen for example may very well have the worst stats in the entire game yet cost more than a standard gondorian heavy infantry unit. The others while slightly better still suffer from relatively poor stats despite their relative value and "elite" status. I would just like to know if this will be rectified as its heavily putting me off playing what should be my favourite faction.

Where shall you extract the 1.05 patch? Which folder?

sorry, it's only to drive the setup after the extracting of the file whereever you want

Jul 24 2012, 5:58pm Anchor

Hey i just downloaded this and i'm wondering is there any diplomacy or religion element as mordor (i haven't played any other yet). I know there's the religion of melkor but can you make priests to convert people to that religion. Also can you get a diplomat so that you can conquer Rhun and Harad or ally the dwarves or Gondor. I know it's not anywhere near what would happen in lore but i like to change things up completely in lore-based worlds like this.

Hey does anyone know exactly what territories you need to take to rebuild the kingdom of arnor? The in-game description is rather vague on the matter. Also does aragorn need to be alive in order for it to happen?

hey all, I'm new here and i was wondering if someone could help me out:
I just installed 3.2 (thats all i installed, standalone right?), and i switched it with the americas campaign folder. when i launch americas campaign, steam i see the tatw loading screen for a brief instant, then it dispears, when i check task manager it says nothing is running. all i hear is the medivual two launxher music (which won't stop), but the launxher isnt there. also steam says im in game, but im not...
any ideas?

Oct 17 2012, 6:41pm Anchor


3.2 is not stand alone you have to download and install 3.0 (2 files totaling 3.6 gigs), 3.1 (5.6 meg patch) and the 3.2 patch.  Then do what you did and it should work.
