I have installed the mod correctly but when I boot it up i get an error message saying that lua5.1.dll cannot be found. Does anyone have a fix for this ?

the mod did not install properly, uninstall/reinstall the mod.

Make sure all three installer files are in the same folder when installing, it is a requirement. If you get the desktop shortcut but getting missing file errors when starting the mod, it means something interfered with the installer when it's extracting the mod data from the ggs files. Make sure your security software isn't interfering and running the installler as admin might help too.

my security software is bitdefender, although I don't think it interferes (no pop ups). As for the mod files, I only have the .exe and setup data 1 (.ggs) files (v3.2).

A file is missing and therefore it will not install properly. You'll need to re-download and re-extract. There are 3 files are in the main install package. TAR-v3.2_10AE_Setup.exe, TAR-v3_Setup_Data1.ggs & TAR-v3_Setup_Data2.ggs must all be present in the same location to successfully install the mod. The EXE file extracts and installs the data from the GGS files. All three files are included in the big download. If you are having issues downloading from here at Moddb, visit our forums at TWcenter.net for more download mirrors from other hosting sites.

start the vanilla game, under graphics, try checking the option "Run in a window" then save the settings and exit game. Then try the mod again.

Another user reported that helping.

also do the usual, verify the game files with Steam, make sure you have a working vanilla version of the game. Make sure the vanilla game starts and and you can begin a campaign. Once that's verified, install the mod and try again starting the game with the mod again BEFORE changing any options in the launcher. If all is good at that point, then you can exit the game and start playing with the various options in the mod.

My internet might now be too slow, since I moved out into a rural town..

Anyone got this on a google drive I could try to DL it from? Chrome DL keeps cancelling on me after a while.
