Ummm, I think I got a problem here. I installed the mod through your launcher, but when I launch the game it shows me this error:

Script Error in 1942/data/export_descr_unit.txt, at line 118, column 18.
Unrecognized mount type 'liberty'.

Any fix?

I managed to fix it by installing the 1.0 version first and then starting the 1.2 launcher.

It seems that there was a problem during the extracting progress.

To reinstall the mod:

Open up 'total_war_1942_version.txt'
(located at the same location as where you put the launcher)

Change the version from 1.1 to 0.9

Run the launcher as administrator.

It should install now correctly

:D

It seems there is problem with launcher. The Launcher does not download the mod, instead downloads the latest update because the mod folder was only like 20 MB. Im trying to download the game manually and applying update manually

Yes I know about the problem. One question, do you use steam or not? And have you run the launcher as administrator?

Your download was interrupted somehow. It didnt install version 1.0. Follow the steps as in the comment from GoldenNooby

Yes, also in your case the big mod itself wasnt completed. You need to reinstall the mod (just by deleting the file called: tw_1942_version.txt)

3 more things that might help:
- Close steam
- Run the launcher as administrator
- Don't run anything else then the launcher while installing

Just wanted to make sure, you will upload the files for any updates as well as just the Launcher yes? I dont use Launcher as I would rather do it by hand.

You will get manual patches until the last patch before 2.0 (Which will be with ingame buildings), but bugfixes will indeed be available before that

Hello
When I download the launcher and run it(tried with administrator),it just crashes straight away and Yes I have the launcher in my Rome total war/bi folder.
I tried reinstalling it but it seems to fail everytime
Any advice?
Thanks

Thats right away the problem: You shouldnt put the launcher inside the bi folder, but in the root. So put the launcher in Rome Total War root folder and try again :P

I have the launcher in my root folder(Not the Bi folder,my bad),but it still has a problem running the exe(Problem event CLR20r3).Which is caused by that my pc can't read the files.
Edit:My friend sent me the files and the game is now running,great mod!

Weird.. Can you send a pic with the exact error? I think you are missing some needed windows packages

Edit: You need to have .NET Framework 4.6.1 installed.

I'm still facing the following problem:

" Script Error in 1942/data/export_descr_unit.txt, at line 118, column 18.
Unrecognized mount type 'liberty'. "

I've tried to re-install as you suggested 4 times.
I also selected both options of disabling or enabling the "preferences" issue.

(Also, I've noticed my Launcher is kinda glitched somehow: Prnt.sc )

So I managed to get it to work by reinstalling as it was just installing the updates after 1.0. After this however, the opening image of the russian mobile artillery will pop up, and the game will crash back to desktop immediately.

If you have bad connection, you need to download the latest Launcher.

If it crashes, it should give you an error message. Some pictures might help me to help you better

There is no error message. It simply exits out of the application and the launcher shuts down. I have tried running in admin mode.

I installed the mod through the launcher, it says the newest version is installed. I have the CD version of rome tw.

The mod works, but I can not save the game if I play with some fractions like UDSSR and USA. If I play other fractions saving is possible.

How can I fix this problem?

Each time you start the mod you can play 1 campaign. If you want to start or load another campaign you need to restart the mod. This is because we have running scripts ;)

Does this work on Rome: Total war Gold Pack or does it have to be straight up rome total war?

okay. Also, are you certain that all the files are on your website where the launcher downloads from? i get maybe 6 or 7 files that it cant find and then the mod crashes
it may also be an extraction error, but heres a list of missing files:
1942/data/models_engine/trucks/m3a1_low.CAS
1942/data/models_engine/trucks/zis5_chinese.CAS
1942/data/models_engine/trucks/hoha_japan.CAS
1942/data/models_engine/ballista/repeating_ballista_lowest.CAS

also

Hi! Try reinstalling the whole mod using the option inside the launcher. That missing items should be in the 1.0 patch.

just gonna say this about paid mods

You're not allowed to ask for money for a mod because it is still CA's property on which the mod is built on.

So if you want to monetize it, you need their permission which is something they won't give to a modder probs.

Hi!

It is not a paid mod. There is only going to be a feature that is only available for premium members. There is no need for you to donate and I am not asking for it either. The choice is for the players and the mod is therefore not a paid mod as anyone can play the fully working version for free :D

Dagovax this person is having the exact same issue as i am, are you absolutely certain that those four files are located in the right folder on your server? if they weren't, that would explain why we're having identical issues.

MaliceRising Are you also getting an error when you attempt to install the mod that says "extraction error- will now restart launcher" or something to that effect?

Yes. The files are not located somewhere alone, but they are all zipped packages. And update 1.0 is a huge package so yeah there can be extraction problems. What you can do is download 1.0 manually from moddb, and then run the launcher again. It will skip 1.0 then and will download the smaller updates. :)

My excuses about the extraction problems and I hope that downloading 1.0 manually will fix your problem
