Elder Kings is an Elder Scrolls themed total conversion for the Paradox Development Studio game Crusader Kings 2. It allows players to live out their dreams of ruling one of the great realms of Tamriel and leading their dynasty through it's various eras and challenges. While still effectively a Work-In-Progress Project, Elder Kings still offers one of the biggest gameplay experiences available for a released CK2 mod!
-OUTDATED VERSION, DOWNLOAD THE LATEST VERSION- Manual Installation alternative of Elder Kings 0.1.4a. If you are able to use the installer, we recommend using that instead of the zip archive. Please follow the basic installation instructions if using the archive. REMEMBER: Large modifications MUST go into your C:\Users\<USER>\Documents\Paradox Interactive\Crusader Kings II\mod folder!
Elder Kings is not considered fully compatible with 32-bit Operating Systems due to increased instability. If you want to try Elder Kings on your 32-bit System you should download the Zip Archive and follow the installation instructions within.
We advise you to ensure you have the latest drivers for your Motherboard/CPU and your Graphics Processor and that you have downloaded and installed the very latest DirectX Drivers available.
To increase the chances of Elder Kings running on your 32-bit System, disable all unnecessary DLC (Music Packs, Dynasty Shield Packs, Sunset Invasion, Unit Packs) and do not use the optional Music Mod. Finally another thing you can try is to increase the size of your virtual memory paging file if using a Windows 32bit OS; simply google for your specific OS for instructions on how to do this.
