1.0 OVERVIEW
============

The Retrofit Mod retrofits various Medieval II Total War (M2TW): Kingdoms features, improvements and bug fixes to vanilla M2TW. This mod can be used as it is, or as a base to create additional M2TW: Kingdoms mods (see section 5.0).

The major features of the Retrofit Mod are:

- Hotseat Campaigns.
- Control AI Reinforcements.
- Boiling Oil.
- 4 Additional custom battle maps (Backwoods, Borderlands, Forts, Trenches).
- Unit rebalancing.
- AI Unit Recruitment tweaks.
- Campaign AI Tweaks.
- Miscellaneous bug fixes and improvements.
- Installer: The mod is packaged with an easy to use installer for computers with a valid installation of M2TW: Kingdoms.


2.0 INSTALLATION
================

The Retrofit Mod requires M2TW: Kingdoms.

To install the Retrofit Mod, simply run the supplied executable file. If you have a valid installation of M2TW: Kingdoms, installation setup will automatically determine the installation path and appropriate language assets (game audio and text) for the Retrofit Mod.

The Retrofit Mod installs all game files into a separate mod path and does not modify any existing M2TW or M2TW: Kingdoms files. This protects the existing M2TW and M2TW: Kingdoms installations and allows multiple mods to be run from the same M2TW installation.

Installation consists of four main components:

- Required Retrofit Mod Files: Core files required to install and use the Retrofit Mod. (REQUIRED)
- Copy M2TW Campaign Files: The installer will copy the required campaign files from the original M2TW installation. (REQUIRED)
- Copy M2TW Custom Battle Files: The installer can copy the custom battle files from the original M2TW installation. (OPTIONAL)
- Copy M2TW Save Games: The installer can copy save games from the original M2TW installation for use in the Retrofit Mod. (OPTIONAL)


3.0 LAUNCHING THE MOD
=====================

The Retrofit Mod can be launched via a number of methods:

- Start menu shortcut
- Quicklaunch icon
- Desktop icon
- M2TW game launcher (English)
- Batch file located in: [M2TW Path]\mods\retrofit\medieval2_retrofit.bat


4.0 CAVEATS AND KNOWN ISSUES
============================

- Version 1.0 of the Retofit Mod is designed to work with M2TW: Kingdoms with M2TW updated to version 1.03.000. Version 1.0 of the Retrofit Mod may not work correctly with future versions of M2TW: Kingdoms and M2TW.
- The Retrofit Mod may not install and/or run correctly for some downloadable distribution methods of M2TW or M2TW: Kingdoms.
- Although the Retrofit Mod contains assets for all available game languages, it has not been exhaustively tested for every language of M2TW: Kingdoms.
- The 4 additional custom battle maps have not been translated for non-english languages.
- Using M2TW save games in the Retrofit Mod has not been exhaustively tested.


5.0 MODDING
===========

The Retrofit Mod may supply a good base or reference for other M2TW: Kingdoms mods. Other mods may include content of the Retrofit Mod in whole or in part. Please acknowledge credit to the Retrofit Mod when Retrofit Mod content is used in other mods.

Can you tell me what mods are using your mod as part of theirs? I would love to play one the big mods that change a lot of things, but the best one would be the one that also includes the Kingdoms gameplay options!

Hello

I have installed the mod and used it now 3 or 4 times but after the second time the detail of the game started going down and now left me with almost a whole gray map and a dark battle map. I am unable to play and this has also accured to my normal medieval2 game, after the retrofit mod I haven't downloaded anything new, how can I get this away?

I am not sure what could be causing this issue. The Retrofit Mod installs fully into a separate mod directory and does not affect the original game. If you are experiencing this issue with both Retrofit and the original game, I would assume it is an issue with your original game. You might be best posting this issue in the Medieval II forums where other members can offer additional help.

I need some help. I downloaded this mod to play hotseat campaign on the grand campaign. But the AI is way different. They rarely initialize any type of attack. All that i want is to be able to play the hotseat in GC. No AI tweaks or anything else. Please help.

Hello.

I need some help . When I go to create a game in hotseat, one of the flipouts asks me for a 'Transfer Path'. What is a transfer path and where can I find it?! Ive tried running hotseat without a transfer path but obvisely it dosnt work.

Wow, so many complaints. I feel sorry for the creator having to put up with so much criticism.
