Creator of Classical Age Total War, 2008-2017
A mod for Creative Assembly's turnbase strategy masterpiece Rome:Total War
Illustrator (illustrashop.com) and webmaster.
That's strange bug. I have no memory of it happen, but it will test the very same campaign.
EDIT: It's probably my secret "highlander" option in descr_characters.txt
Not disk compatible !
Not CD-crack Compatible !
Only regular STEAM, on Alexander (catw 1.9)
BTW a catw03 is going to be released, more vanilla-like, more stable, and with the original Roman script and families.
The new definitive, first version playable version is here: Moddb.com. I will made a standalone for catw 08.2 in 2020.
Will do, that's for sure !
Amazing work you've done, especially on the map, can't recoignise this good old MM, and it works on Alex (when chat.filter.san is in data) as well.
Hi Lanjane, i initially planned to launch catw 0.8 today but you were faster ! ;)
Excellent mod, i'm following it since the beginning, just downloaded, i'm about to play this version. Merry Xmas to the team !
*nb: Eager to discover Tukhara and your sub-campaigns system...
What bugger me on your problem is the name of your preference files, you say preferences.ini whereas it is a preference.txt file. The solution above works for me anyway.
It should be in the preference files .txt in the preferencesf folder, at the line "show_banner:false" and change it to "true". Abd for setting up/removing the fog of war, it's the same as for cheating, "toggle_fow" after pressing the "²" keyboard button (can change). Cheers !
Please try using 7-zip, it's free. I used it to compress the archive.
Sorry but there is no "senate" in the mod. The corresponding starting faction is Pergamum. So i believe if you see one there must be an installation problem. Please explain what you see as a starting page.
Definitely not. You should however pickup the ones here: They have been completely overhauled by the original creator of the mod, and are all Steam-based: Ancient-battles.com
Thank you !
1.4 version is in the tubes for April. It will fix a number of things but the main battle has been to deal with custom settlements on what is essentially vanilla map (with new textures and some new terrain features).
Expect also more custom battles maps and historical maps.
So it was even simpler :)
You're welcome !
Edit: I changed the path and got the same bug as you, so it's likely your path to catw01 is either deeper or less deeper on your own configuration. Either ../../../../../ or ../../../
Starting directly with catw01/data/ like on other files definitely brake the link, so it should be kept relative.
That's strange because there is a cypress_a.cas file where it should be. So i only can thing for an 7z encoding, upload or download error. never got this error. It's in the descr_climate.txt file. Just rename/delete it and see what's happens ? Could well also be the relative path which is wrong depending on your own specific installation. The file called is ../../../../catw01/data/terrain/aerial_map/tree_models/cypress_a.cas. Adding or removing one of these ../ could resolve the problem. (and modify all the other path in these files the same way)
There is no batfile. Just unzip the folder alongside your other mods and use the shortcuts. Note: There should be a single catw03 folder, not another one inside.
Hello, here are the official instructions. Tested on STEAM only.
<h2>How to install</h2>
1-Unzip the catw03 folder, by using 7zip: 7-zip.org />
2-Move you catw03 folder in your current destination: RTW-BI<br />
Ex: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Rome Total War Gold<br />
3-Then just use directly the shortcuts inside catw03, make a copies to the desktop, drop them on the desktop.<br />
They are all tailored for Vista/Seven/Win 10 types of installations and works with steam.<br />
I'm working on 3.5. It will solve i hope several bugs and have factions changed in the unified rome campaign (like the Galatians, illyrians and pergamum in, greek leagues instead of sparta, map changes, etc)
Missing/corrupted texture ? Currently making a new check.
That's a random error which is common with all catw mods. It only appears when quitting the game or when there is another bug and disappears when deactivating the cultures file
Hello SettDark, it was never intended to work with a disk-version (and has never been tested outside of STEAM).
By precaution, i download it from here again, tested in with Alex, RTW 1.5 and bi engines and both custom battle and campaigns works just fine, but true, i did not tested all custom battle configurations.
I can't get your problem
I understand that you can't save using either the regulat menu or Ctrl+s, but in that case, does it crashes ?
(It should in that case, not going back to the menu or KTM)
Thanks ! There is also an ongoing development on a teutoburg forest 9AD campaign and the Mithridatic wars are just out! Check this: Ancient-battles.com
Awesome guys, thx for all your hard work, it pays off !
Nice to see RTW modding and AUC is still alive and kicking ! Well done mate, updating my install now...
They do. However due to the firepower of some "slave" factions some seems to not be bold enough. In campaign nevertheless regular factions always took over. For the others it's a question of balance. catw 1.2.4 is coming.
Just unzip the main catw05 folder in your steam/Alexander install and use the shortcut of your choice
Hi Tallest David
I suppose the excellent Mariusz Kozik was asked to portray Teuta, queen of the Illyrians when she threatened Rome in 229 BC. That's catw 1.6 in development, set precisely at the eve of the illyrian wars.
Check "description" above.
CATW 1.2 is Fully compatible with STEAM (reworked from scratch for this in 2017).
1- Verify you have a fresh (unmodded) RTW 1.5/BI 1.6 or Alex 1.9 RTW version.
2- Unzip the catw05 file
3a- Place the file into your own Alexander directory, ie C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Rome Total War Alexander\catw05
3b- Place the file into your own RTW/BI directory, ie C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Rome Total War Gold\catw05
4- Use the shortcut inside catw folder, just put it on your desktop
For STEAM users: Go to Steam, on the Alexander TW properties, then "Set Launch Options", then paste: -nm -show_err -mod:catw05 -noalexander
The mod will start each time you launch Alexander on STEAM.
On RTW/BI same story but -nm -show_err -mod:catw05 -movie_cam
