This setup tells you how to play Total War: 1942 together on GameRanger

1. The first thing you need to do, is installing GameRanger. The installer is also included in the downloaded mod (in the folder GameRanger).

2. After installing, create an account and log in.

You will then see this screen:

Main screen inside GameRanger

3. Select Edit, and then Options.
Now be sure you are under the 'Games' tab.

edit Options" width="349" height="355" />

4. Now scroll way down and look for Rome: Total War - Barbarian Invasion.

option screen

5. Click on the Browse button and go to your game root folder

select game

6. Now GameRanger is looking for the RomeTW-BI.exe. Using the vanilla executable won't launch the mod. So I created a executable with the same name inside the '1942' folder. You can recognize the file by its icon, and descriptions. Select that file and click on the 'Open' button.

select 1942

7. Now close the option panel, and you are now able to Host, and Join every Total War: 1942 game!

all done

Now you are done! Play Multiplayer battles against me and other players!!

Note: If you want to play vanilla Barbarian Invasion again, you have to go to options again and select the default RomeTW-BI.exe.
The vanilla Rome: Total War should work without altering the options.
