Its diffrent when messing with the export_descr_unit file the number means diffrent from what is on the field example :

type Axemen of Lossarnach
dictionary Axemen_of_Lossarnach ; Axemen of Lossarnach
category infantry
class heavy
voice_type Heavy
banner faction main_infantry
banner holy crusade
soldier Varangian_Guard, 60, 0, 1

Normally the number shown in red means that there are 150 men in that unit if you have the options set to "Huge" scale, now if you raise it will increase that numberof men up in that unit, the problem is you cannot increase the number of men in a unit pass 250 if you try then you will get a CTD everytime so you have to mess with the number a bit to get to the number of men you want in that unit, not to go over the 250 men mark remember so for the example you could change that number above to maybe 100 and it might raise the men level for that unit to around 250 "Not for sure haven't try it yet' but that is how its done...

Hope This Helps ;)

Any day now ;) You all will see it soon enough :devious: ;) :)

so 250 is the absolute limit? how about changing how big huge multiplies the existing number, so say x3 instead of 2.5, or will that create the same error?

Hey i got a question...okay can i still install the other 'Kingdoms Expansion Campaigns'.....even tho i have technically added the mod? I can still play the Teutonic game and the basic M2TW just fine but the battle map banners do not appear in the battles. (which can be kind of annoying, even in ThirdAge)

Hmm, I'm not sure how to get those back on, go here and see if someone on there can help you, they are pretty good about finding a solution to peoples problems ;)

okay thank you...buuut would installing another Kingdoms camp[aign mess up the Third Age mod? I mean i really dont want to mess it up and have to reinstall it because of the next patch (come on release it already! ;) )

Jun 17 2010, 1:28pm Anchor

I wouldn't think it would mess up the mod "course I have never tried installing anything but sub-mods sooo" I mean you can try, I have never heard of anyone haveing problems on that so why not and try it, the worst thing is that you will have to reinstall everthing :rolleyes: that is really nothing if you think about it ;)

NOTE : By the way the new patch is going to overright everything anyway :beer:

Nice! any idea as to how big the patch will be? and will this be the last patch? I certainty hope not!...after all, the hobbit is coming to theaters!

Jun 18 2010, 11:17am Anchor

It will be close to 3 or so gigs, And "NO" it will "NOT" be the last patch ;) They will be working on it as long as KK is still got the time and intrest, as for the The Hobbit its starting to look like there wont be one, if anything its going to be delayed even longer now, read this

Rhun could have something special units because they are ignored in LoTR movies ands books, you could make a regional campaign or a whole map of the eastern lands around the lake of rhûn (improvise them!!) :D :D

could you tell in % how redy it is like you told before 1.0 come

Jun 30 2010, 3:08pm Anchor

one question, will the historical battle of helms deep have a modeled Hornburg and helms deep wall, like we saw in the movie? or just be a MTW castle?

Jun 30 2010, 3:39pm Anchor

and here u have the best screenshoots i ve ever seen!!

Jun 30 2010, 8:36pm Anchor

unfortunately I've tried to uninstall and reinstall multiple times, even to the point where I've stripped the entire game off then put it back then the mod all of it int he correct order and correct paths. I've found a way to play without this happening unfortunately it require I don't touch the keyboard because that's what sets it off and I have to keep quick saving each turn ever so often.

DiD u install patch for Medieval 2 Total war Kingdoms?? you must have that patch,or game wont work good

Jul 4 2010, 5:22pm Anchor

Hey Legolose, are you gonna nick some voice sounds off the movie or BFME so when yu click on a general e.g. Elrond or Boromir, they respond with their ACTUAL voice?

Also, does this new patch include custom made settlements e.g. Minas Tirith, Helms Deep?

It would also be quite cool to be able to call upon the Army of the Dead like you could on LOTR TW (Alexander Mod) :D

Jul 5 2010, 9:28pm Anchor

@ Cyenwulf - Yes the Historical battle of Helms Deep will look like the movie, but this is only for Historical battles not custem battles or campaign battles ;)

@ open_sketchbook - well apperntly your the only one I heard of having this problem if you followed my install instuctions on my blog to the word then it should have worked if not then you install it wrong or missed a step, Just look here and make sure you installed it right

@ SonofFeanor123 - No on both questions sorry...

question... I fought against a goblin general which had the one ring and gollum as a trait. Well my question is if the one ring is significant as in does something happen if you kill the general holding it like if you get sauron or something ^^

Jul 6 2010, 3:45pm Anchor

:( :( :( I'm fed up with Generals doing aggressive speeches at the start of battles!

Oh btw don't know if you've noticed or if it's just just a problem with mine but Prince Imrahil doesn't seem to make his mind up about what he looks like! It can vary from a building picture to Denethor's or Boromir's picture. Is there any way of fixing this??

Jul 6 2010, 6:30pm Anchor
