Open Steam - Libray - Right click Medieval2 - Properties - Launch Options - Paste "--features.mod=mods/Third_Age_Reforged"
Q. Even after using launch code vanilla game starts
a) You installed the mod to wrong location
Open Control Panel - Uninstall a program - Uninstall Third Age Reforged version 0.95 - reinstall 0.95 with correct path
Q. Mod is intalled to correct location and I'm using the launch code. Third_Age_Reforged folder has only empty folders and couple text files.
a) You didn't extract the installer and .bin files before running it. Installer does not ask for path as it uses same as first time installing.
Q. What can I do to lower lag?
a) First of all, turn all video settings on low. Medieval 2 does not care how good your PC is. Most of problems are caused by internet and scale of battle. If you keep experiencing lag try to reduse internet usage by other programs.
Because of game's optimization huge scale battles with tens of thousands of troops will lag the game. If you can try to lower the scale of battle or just endure with it.
Q. How do I run Medieval 2 on windowed mode?
a) Go to Steam/Steamapps/Common/Medieval II Total War and edit Medieval2.preferences.cfg. Add/change values to
windowed = 1
borderless_window = 1"
and change "battle_resolution" and "campaign_resolution" to your screen resolution.
If game will launch in full screen after first time, repeate - save- right click medieval2.preferences.cfg - properties - check "read only" and hit ok.
