I'm new to game mods guys and I'm having a little trouble and wondered if anyone can help? First of all I love the game as I'm a huge fan of both the works of J.R.R Tolkien and the Total War series. I have downloaded 3.0 parts 1 and 2, patch 3.1 and patch 3.2. I then played for half an hour as Eriador when I besieged barrow downs. As I started the battle I was returned to the desktop and confronted with a message stating "Medieval Toal War Third Age has forced to close" or something along those lines. I thought it may be a one off but 20 mins later after starting a defense of a gundabad ambush the same thing happened. Please help!
Cheers guys
PS it looks like some other people have had the same problem too and we have no solution so far?
Also another annoying thing is that if third age was an official expansion pack to Medieval 2 then I would gladly buy it if it meant not having any problems like this.

Some problems most other people seem to be having....

All installed, in correct order...also tried complete reinstall 3 times now. The first time I installed it, I was able to open it up and play a few games...then I got the dreaded message: Medieval 2: Total War encountered an unspecified error and will now exit.

Ever since then, every time I try to start a battle, the loading screen comes up and the battle loads. The scene appears momentarily on the screen and then the above message appears. I have tried running as admin, several reinstalls, and I saw places where people said if you delete some map.rwm file, but that didn't change anything. I can't play and it really sucks because I have a LOTR craving that needs to be satisfied right now!! :cry:

Okay me and my friend both just got the mod, but he had medieval total war and kingdoms through the discs and I got it through steam. We both have the same version of the mods (3.2) and when we tried to play a multiplayer game together, it came up as incompatible, we both tried hosting and no change, any help here?

When i boot up the game, everything runs smoothly; all videos play just fine, including campaign intro scenes. menu is fully functional, and i turned the graphics all the way down. but every time i start a campaign after choosing the faction, and it gets to the loading screen after the faction intro, the campaign map does NOT load. the game completely ceases to process, the application itself closes and im back to my desktop. the campaign map itself just wont load. Medieval 2 vanilla works perfectly fine. as does all the other campaign maps. whats the issue here? every file is in my steam directory exactly as was instructed. dont ask my specs, they are more than sufficient. 6GB RAM and i7 multicore processor. im not one to ever have tech problems like this

What happened to merchants? I don't see the ability to recruit them anywhere. If they were removed then why are all the trade resource icons still sitting around everywhere?

Everytime I try and play on multyplayer even on medieval II it says invalid CD-Key. I bought the game from my cousin and installed it years ago. Ive made a gamer ID through gamespy but when i try to login it just gives me the same message over and over. Any help please?

ok so I was wondering, how do you enter cheats for a city whose name is more than one word? like process_cq Minas Tirith? ive entered it with an underscore "_" like in the base game, but it doesn't work in this mod, and neither does a dash "-" help?

Can anybody help me? I've been trying to get Third Age for a couple years now but my laptops were always too crappy to handle it. This year, I got an HP Envy TouchSmart laptop, downloaded Third Age, but every time I try to go into an actual battle, campaign or custom, I get kicked out and a notification comes up that says "Medieval 2 Total War encountered an unspecified error and will now exit." So frustrating

I noticed I'm not the only one with this problem, but when I download parts 1 and 2 from Mod DB, they are downloaded in notepad format... Why aren't they labeled with the installer icon? How can I fix this?
