Installation Instructions (.rar version):
Extract the contents of FATW_TNS_patch_2.6.rar you just downloaded to your Rome directory where you installed TNS (this is normally C:\Program Files\Activision\Rome - Total War, or - if you have Gold Edition - C:\Program Files\The Creative Assembly\Rome - Total War).

TNS patch 2.6 IS cumulative.
TNS patch 2.6 is NOT save-game compatible.
*Note that if you have 2.0 installed you MUST first apply fix patch 2.1 and 2.2 before applying this patch. Users with 2.0b should not apply 2.1 or 2.2 as they are already incorporated into 2.0b, instead just apply this new 2.6 patch. All hotfixes are already included in 2.6 and so it does not matter if you already have them installed or not.
