Frequently Asked Questions
How do I install this mod?
1. Requirement is the official M2 Kingdoms Expansion.
2. Install Stainless Steel 6.0 Part1 & Part2
3. Install Stainless Steel 6.1 Patch
Note: It is very important that you install both parts of the mod into the correct directory.
Normally this is ".../Program Files/SEGA/Medieval II Total War".
When you have installed the mod in another directory, just point it manually to the correct directory.
How do I launch this mod?
- Double-click the "Stainless Steel 6.0" icon on your desktop
(or double-click "Stainless_Steel_Kingdoms.bat" in your default "medieval II Total War\mods\Stainless_Steel_6" directory)
How can I disable the "supply traits"?
- Stainless Steel Patch 6.1 has an option to disable the supply traits.
Why are not all factions playable in custom battles?
The game has a limited number for factions in custom battles. Therefore some factions had to be disabled for custom battles.
You can re-enable a missing faction in the descr_sm_facctions.txt (Stainless_Steel_6/data) file. Search for the faction that is missing, look for "custom_battle_availability no" and change it to "custom_battle_availability yes". Then you have to change any other faction to "custom_battle_availability no", otherwise the game will crash.

What can I do when a crash to desktops happens?
- IF you have one, please look into your system.log file (In "Medieval II Total War/logs" folder) and paste the last 5 lines in the bug thread. This will help me to find the problem faster.
It would be even better if you would upload a save-game before this crash happened. This helps a lot to find the problem easier.
You could easily upload one at www.megaupload.com.
Just select your file, make any description, accept the "terms" and click on "send".
Thanks in advance!
