This is a music submod for the M2TW antiquity-era mod Europa Barbarorum II (EB II), v. 2.3. It contains original tracks from Medieval II Total War and the first Rome Total War composed by Jeff Van Dyck.
This submod for Europa Barbarorum II, or EB II includes original M2TW and RTW music for the main menu, campaign map, and battle map portions of the game. Most of the original EB II music for the campaign map has been retained, although there is now a greater variety of music overall, so you won't get bored listening to the same background music over and over again. Only one track from the original EB II score has been retained for the battle map, though. Everything else has been changed!
Just to be emphatically clear, this submod is also save-game compatible! You can immediately patch your existing EB II game at any point in time and the music will work automatically. To be even more emphatically clear and despite the comical logo I have chosen here, this submod does not contain heavy metal music from the band Racer X. Lol. :D
1) Download the RAR file, locate it on your computer (should be in your "downloads" folder)
2) Extract the RAR file directly to your EB II ("ebii") folder within the "mods" folder of your Medieval II game. DO NOT extract it to any other folder than the EB II one.
3) When asked to overwrite any and all files, simply click yes. If it did not ask you to overwrite any files, then you have done something wrong and have chosen the wrong installation path.
4) Boot the game up and enjoy the new tunes!
I would advise backing up your game if you have not already done so; at the very least make a backup for your "sounds" folder in the "data" folder of your EB II mod. That way you can replace the files with the originals if you want to have the original soundtrack back in the game!
If for some reason you do not have a file archiving tool for extracting RAR and ZIP files, there are a number of available ones you could download for free online. I would suggest using WINRAR if you don't have it.
