I own a gold edition version of medieval II total war which contains both the original and the kingdoms expansion. This version though does not create a "kingdoms" folder and so to compensated by creating a TAT3 folder in the mod folder where the other kingdom mods are placed (britania, crusarders etc). However when i try to run the game I get the same problem as Heavyarm190 saying that it cannot find "kingdoms.exe"
What do I need to do to get it to work?

May 7 2009, 2:30pm Anchor

May 9 2009, 10:16am Anchor

i followed the instructions for installing mod with steam
and i also changed the name to americas but when i try to start it it still doesnt work
i also noticed that even thou i extracted both parts into the same place a new folder called mod showed up with a part of the mod inside the folder

Jun 8 2009, 7:14pm Anchor

It is a know problem, go here and look though the bug report and if your bug isn,t reported just make a post ;)

Jun 14 2009, 2:27am Anchor

Yes you say that the mod requires Kingdoms as well. Does that mean you have to install ALL of the expansions or just one? (I have the gold edition if that's any help)

Jun 15 2009, 10:29am Anchor

^^Just one of them;)

Jul 6 2009, 8:33pm Anchor

This mod is made and lead by a well respected and known modder KK or "King Kong" if you don't trust me do a little reserch on him..Trust me this is a virus free mod ;) there are bugs but that is why they have patches and any new mod will always have bugs...

2nd how to get Trolls or Mumakils? from quick battle (and ent rebels) i know how good they r but i have some of the desert cities hughe or large fully processed, but i can train them nowhere when will i be abled? is it time tiggered?

3rd why do the orks get the ring?^^

i hope u can help me with some of my questions, thx so far.

1 : Install like this first M2TW then patch it to the 1.3
then in Kindoms {just one campainge is all you need} then look and see if it is the 1.5 if not update it to the 1.5
then install TATW part 1 & 2 { which is the TATW 1.0 } in M2TW main dir. then install the TATW 1.1 in same dir. then install 1.2 in same dir.
then it should work .

2 : You have to be a good fraction to be able to recruit Ents, plus you have to be in Fangore Forest {they are recruitable rebels in Fangore}, to recruit Trolls & Mumakils there will be and event in or around 40th to 50th turn and later on in turns 80 to 100 these will let you build better barracks for Mumakils you have to be in or own Harads area and I think you have to be Harads or Rhun fraction to get them, for Trolls you must be an evil fraction {Mordor or OoMm} . I hope this helps.

3 : The OoMm are the first to get it the ring because there is a General in Moria and that is were the ring is therefore he gets it to get the ring yourself you must take Moria and have a General there and also kill the General that has the ring and in 30 or so turns that General in Moria will get the ring { at least that is what happened to me }

eriador can produce ents?

i want to use ents but it is difficult to find how to produce ents.

Aug 17 2009, 8:16am Anchor

I cant recruit trolls whith the mordor faction.
Every city's building tree says they can only be built in a castle and vice-vesa!
Please help!
I'm using version 1.0 without any of the patches so that may be it.

Aug 18 2009, 5:00pm Anchor

@ kind98 No, the only way to get Ents if your a good fraction is walk an officer into Fangor Forest and make sure you have at least 2300gp, and that it has been at least 33 turns " 1 Ent unit will be able to recruit every 33 turns" and you should be able to recruit merc. "which is one Ent unit"...

@ lozza101 First I recommend to add the 1.1 patch & then the 1.2 patch, you must wait for advance barracks to happen which is around turn 40-50 then you have to wait for the most advance barracks in turns 80-100 and I think you will be able to build Troll pits "not for sure haven't played a evil fraction yet so"
But you are missing a whole lot, playing without both patches the patches include new units, Herioes, Characters age right, fixes some problems and graphic issues and much, much, more....
