When do you think that will come out? Whenever I try to start a new game, (in 4.1) it just puts me back at the single player menu.

Hardly to say right now :)
Maybe at Christmas or next year?

Ahh, I forgot to mention that you have to delete the map.rwm file :)

No Offense, but King Charles appearing right outside of Florence seems a bit unfair.

Im also having trouble with figuring out the field costs and recruitment costs. It says it costs 5000 to levy troops, but I don't see how that was implemented. Also, how do the field costs work?

Well, the player receive a warning in time, so there is plenty of time.

Click on the diplomatic tab, so an event pops up, which informs you about all field costs of your troop.

What do you mean with levy troops?
Their recruitment costs?

it says:

Effects:

King Charles is preparing for the campaign, costs of 5000 Florins for levying troops.

Ah I see!
Well, you have to pay 5000 Florins due the accruing costs to levy an army for your campaign in Italy.

Is this a one time fee deducted from your treasury at the beginning?

It is deducted from your treasury, if you choose yes.

I still don't understand the field costs, is it per unit, per army, or per general? is it per turn also?

sorry for asking so many questions, i am just really excited about this mod and RP'ing an italian city state, lol.

It is per general and captain and it is paid by turn.
Just an example:
You have an army led by an general and currently besieging a town. You will have to pay 1000 Florins. If your army is in enemy or not your controlled land, you'll have to pay 500(?) Florins. The amount is paid for every army in the field.

no worries :D

Alright, this may sound like a stupid question, but where can I find the map.rwm file? I can't find it anywhere in the mod folder.

No worries, it should be under Italian_Wars\data\world\maps\base :)

I have checked there, but I can only see

-Descr_regions.txt
-Maps_features.tsa
-Map_ground_types.TGA
-maps_regions.tsa

Was my install or download corrupted maybe?

If yes, you need to change the directory, when the installer asks you, where to install the patch!

Ok..
Well, try this. Delete all versions of TIW.
Then install version 4.0, in your \mods directory.
Then extract the english translation files for version 4.0.
Then install patch 4.1
Also, post the path where you have installed all, so I can be sure everything is done correctly.

Alright. So you should have a folder named "italian_wars" in your mods directory. "italian_wars" should include following files and folder:
Folder:
- custom
- data
- GHZ
- maps
- Original
- packs
- preferences

files:
- credits
- DIK
- Executable
- GHZ_Texte
- GHZ_Texte_back
- Icon
- Uninstall DIK
