1- Extract to your Medieval II Total War\mods.
2- Go to the new folder Diadochi_v09 in your Medieval II Total War\mods.
3- Use the "Executable" batch file to launch the mod.
4- Play and have fun.

If the game is opened in a small window do this:

Open Configuration.cfg with a text editor (preferably Notepad++) and you see this part:

movies = 1
windowed = 1 ## Windowed mode (windowed = 1) is usually more stable
borderless_window = 1
no_background_fmv = 1
show_banners = true
# widescreen = 1
# unit_detail = high
# grass_distance = 9000

Change windowed = 1 to windowed = 0

Then in game options chose the native resolution of your monitor, after that you can change to windowed = 1 again and you'll still have full screen.

How to create a shortcut to launch the mod from your desktop:

- Go to Diadochi_v09 folder, right click on the Executable file and chose "Create shortcut" and move the shortcut to the desktop.
- Copy/paste the icon that is also in Diadochi_v09 folder to the desktop.
- Right click on the shortcut you created, chose properties and "Change icon...", then chose "Browse..." and then chose Desktop, you should have the icon there, just chose the icon.
- Rename your shortcut to whatever you want, for example: Diadochi
- You can now launch the mod always from your desktop.

Every mod works for me except yours. There's always a crash (start campaign and loading) I really like your mods but I can't play them.:/

Can you play mods like EBII? Do you have the for 4Gb patch? I don't think it's needed as the end turns are pretyy fast, but I do have it installed. And I see modders recommend it when the game crashes when loading. Also try delete map.rwm in data/world/maps/base I don't think that's the problem but who knows.
