Thank you! Apologies for taking the old VI down; I stupidly forgot to add some things.

Sorted now ;)

Update: I can actually only get the game to open 1 time using the desktop shortcut. After opening the game (right after installing) using the desktop shortcut, the AUC application file disappears from the rome total war alexander game folder. Then, after exiting AUC and trying to launch the game again using the desktop shortcut I get an error message stating "The item AUC Launcher.exe that this shortcut refers to has been changed or moved, so this shortcut will no longer work properly." It has to be the bat to exe converter, because im getting the same issue with AUC 5.2. The only version I can get to work properly is AUC 5.1. I want to play version VI of this fantastic mod. Any help would be much appreciated, once again.

It sounds like your antivirus is blocking the exe from launching or performing properly. Can you try disabling your antivirus for a minute, launching the game and seeing if that works?

Furthermore, if you have any other RTW mods (namely Invasio Barbarorum or Roma Surrectum III) it might interfere with AUC. Try removing these mods first.

is this compatible with non-english versions? I for once employ an old CD-based German Rome.

Yes, it should be compatible. However it will be in English. Sorry =/

Entirely upto you bud; I personally play VH/VH but I find the AI to be hyper-aggressive in such settings. Give it a go on H/H and see how that pans out!

Did you re-upload this file? I got a message in the updates section, and I'm pretty sure I downloaded this before October 3rd, the date it says this file was added. Or did you change anything and we should re-download?

I reuploaded the other day, as a bug meant that many of my planned additions never actually worked ingame. So, I took it down for a day, made the fixes, and uploaded it again.

To answer your question; aye I reckon you'd need to download it again to get the new changes.

I have a problem. When I am on the strategic map in the campaign, it lag a lot. What can I do?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+2 votes

Campaign map? Have you got a suitably powerful computer for it?

Also, the new scripts allow the AI to field massive forces, which may make your PC go a bit slower (but nothing too shocking). How bad is it?

I think this is a Windows 10 issue (I've heard people complain about this with new GPUs). I'm sorry I can't help at hand, but I DO know that it's a common issue - maybe try googling about campaign lag with newer rigs =)

For some reason it crashes shortly after I use the launcher and it says:

"Script Error in data/settlement_plans/roman_town.txt, at line 83, column 1.

Name not recognized: 'roman_greek_shrine_round_group' - make sure you defined it in descr_building_battle.txt, or as a slot or group in descr_settlement_plan.txt"

What did I do wrong?

strange - it links to the original files (if it were my mod, it would say "script error in AUC/data/settlement_plans).

Have you installed it to RTW Alexander, or RTW Gold?

If it's Steam, install to RTW Alexander. Also make sure to verify the integrity of your Alexander game.

Thanks! It works properly now! Apparently, my RTW Alexander needed to be verified and reinstalled.

Hey this mod looks great if you enjoy the vanilla feel, but I was wondering is this mod 4 turns per year?

Nope, it's just the standard 2 turns per year bud, sorry!

Please reply this man, I don't use steam and I don't have Rome Total War Alexander expansion. I only have Rome Total War Gold Edition. I have installed the game but it didn't work, when I run the launcher the bat shows up then when the waiting is over for the bat, the game does not open. I have tried to run the game at every location , The Creative Assembly, Rome Total War Gold Edition, Rome Total War Gold Edition / BI. It's just not working, I want to play the game but it doesn't open, like I said I run the bat when the bat closes himself up, I look at the screen and nothing happens. Please help me I'm waiting for you to reply

The bat says this before it closes itself up, 'RomeTW-ALX.exe' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. Then it closes itself up

Sorry for the late response; can you tell me the directory in which it is installed? In RTW Gold it must be installed to the RTW Gold main folder (not data, not BI, not ALX). The right folder also contains the exe files.

PS; does your RTW Gold contain RTW-ALX.exe in the installation folder? It should.

Thank you for replying I have solved the problem already and playing it since yesterday, it works well and the mod looks very good +1. I didn't knew that it was mandatory to have Alexander expansion to run the game, I thought that having BI and RTW was enough.

Will this add multithreading? I find myself struggling to run this game, the same one that runs every other game flawlessly on higher settings.

Unfortunately the older Total War games are unable to utilise multithreading - I play on a modern powerful rig, yet encounter occasional stuttering when on huge battles =/

By this do you mean Unit Cards and Unit Descriptions?

If you go into the mod and check "Custom Battle" you will see every unit the game adds (there are far too many to showcase in the pictures unfortunately) - give it a go and enjoy!

The installer is automatic - simply guide it to the correct folder (see instructions above).

Remember, you must have Alexander TW installed for it to work.

Oh dear!

First off; have you got Rome Total War Alexander installed? It needs RTW Alexander to function.

2nd - is it installed correctly? It MUST be installed in the Alexander folder. Sometimes the installer can't find your installation files (especially if you've custom installed the game) so you might need to point the installer in the right direction.

I solved all of the above I changed the operating system to Windows 8 lol, but now just load the first image and that's it I can't play :( (I have rtw gold edition) then I install the mod in alx.exe folder What would be the folder of gold edition

Strange; if you can locate the following file try installing it to there:

C:/Program Files/Steam/steamapps/common/Rome Total War Alexander

If you have RTW Gold then install it to the following:

C:/Program Files/Creative Assembly (or SEGA, or both)/Rome Total War Gold

PS - Sorry for the late reply!
