"Breathes new life into one of TW's tightest and most atmospheric iterations with simplicity, balance and superb quality." - Antagonist, TW historian. Viking invasion II aims to recreate the campaign of the cult-status MTW: Viking Invasion on the Rome BI engine. It sticks closely to the original campaign, only making changes to correct large inaccuracies, to improve gameplay and comply with the new engine. It is also set a little later than the original campaign at AD 851 - two years after the birth of King Alfred the Great of Wessex. The map covers Ireland, England, Alba (Scotland), Jutland, Wales, and the isles and westernmost provinces of the Norwegians. There are 50 provinces and many new strategy-map trade resources and other models, as well as new map textures for both summer and winter. Eight factions are included which cover the Viking, Saxon and Celtic cultures. See link for more details.

Greetings fans and supporters of Fourth Age: Total War. It is October now, and as winter approaches, so does the release of The Dominion of Men, the newest iteration of our mod.

Beta testing for The Dominion of Men has been initiated, and the final release draws near. We are currently testing the major factions, and a second round will follow for the minor factions.

Thank you for your constant support.

Hi all, firstly let me apologize for posting - I've looked at the comments and TWcenter posts etc, and the solutions to my problem isn't fixing it. And in case you think I'm very behind the times - the show Vikings urged me to find a viking mod to play.. pre Christian that is. Anyway, I am getting the "line 18 column 1 horde_min_units not supported" error.

I have the right version of BI (1.61) - I have it on Steam. I recently purchased it as a Gold edition which has Rome and BI. When you click on Play on the Steam screen it comes up with the option of playing Rome or BI - I'm hoping that's not the issue here?!

Also, successfully downloaded VI2 and it's in the right location, pointed the right path in launch settings on steam and created the Icon etc. I'm on windows 8.

PLEASE HELP!! (I'm not very PC literate so please speak to me like a child lol)

Sorry no. I tried everything I was instructed to do and still didn't work. My only guess is that steam's gold version somehow isn't compatible. But I wont pretend to know about such things.

I was able to fix mine for a bit. By putting this in to the launch option thingy: -mod:bi/vi2 -show_err -nm

I then launched BI through Steam and it seemed to work.

Did you put the mod in to the steam apps/common Rome folder? When you do that, it automatically puts it in to the BI folder.

I have noticed that the shortcut it creates is to Rome and not BI. When trying to select to play BI, the screen goes black and flickers (I have to crtl-alt-del it). So it seems to me that it's trying to run it with Rome and not BI. I dont know how to change that on this Gold edition? Anyone? :o
