One of the famous total conversion for Rome: Total War is now at ModDB: Ran no Jidai ! This mod is focused on Medieval Japan: the bloody era of Sengoku Jidai. With 20 playable clans, 200 units, scripts, new architectures, new music and sounds, new graphisms and RS 2 environments, this is certainly a worthwhile mod. I have to say I'm not a member of RnJ Mod Team, just a player who want to give more visibility to the mod, as well as providing reliable links for download.

You can download the mod with ModDB servers: Moddb.com.

Unfortunatelly it seems this mod doesn't work.

Problem: CTD when trying to play custom battle or campaign.

And it's not me, i've already installed 48 mods for RTW (mod foldered and not) and this is the only mod that doesn't work.

I hope they fix it, since this mod looks really nice.

-----------

EDIT: Ok, so i uninstalled it again, then installed it back again. This time i was trying the mod after each installation, to check where's the problem:

I installed Full version 2.0 ---> It's working.
I installed Patch 2.6 ---> It's working.
I installed patch 2.8 ---> NOT working. CTD.

I don't know what's wrong with patch 2.8, but it seems we have to play patch 2.6 until they fix patch 2.8

----------

EDIT 2:

I tested another thing. I thought it's possible the modders installation instructions are wrong for patch 2.8

So, what i did is to follow installation instructions for full version 2.0 in "BI" RTW folder. Patch 2.6 i also followed instructions and installed in main RTW folder (instructions this time don't say BI folder).

And for Patch 2.8 i disobeyed instructions, and instead of installing in BI folder i installed in main RTW folder (as patch 2.6). The mod is working now, but i don't think patch 2.8 has actually been applied, since what this patch does is installing folder "Shogun2" in main RTW folder and nothing else. Because the mod is launched from BI .exe, i think now it's working because that last patch hasn't actually been installed.

That's all i can help for now.

-------------

EDIT 3: Now i know why it wasn't working. I read this post:

"Fuckyousobymod Jan 23 2022
The game will crash unless after installing you need to delete the map.rwm file in bi/shogun2/data/world/campaign/barbarian_invasion."

So, this time I Installed patch 2.8 in BI folder, this time following instructions. I did what this post said and now custom battles and campaign works. No more CTDs.

And this is how i spent two hours installing a mod that should have taken only 10 minutes.

Please modders, next time don't forget to say we have to delete "map.rwm" file. And thank you for this great mod :)

Hey guys, I have performance issues. When I siege a settlement, my fps drops hard when I face the settlement(turn towards it), but it runs smoothly when I play normal battles, without settlements or turning away from a settlement. Rome vanilla game and expansions run smoothly, even when Im sieging, so PC is stong enough to handle it. Someone mentioned it that I should download a dll (d3d9 or something...) but I dont remember it. Can you guys help me out?

there is a d3d8 file that improves fps overrall for rome 1(i can provide a linf for you IF you so desire),also go to your resolution in the options and choose one that is 16 NOT the 32 one,this improves fps in a massive way for many rome 1 mods
