kingdoms grand campaign mod version 3
This is the third full version of my Kingdoms Grand Campaign Mod. If you have already downloaded my previous mod version and patches uninstall and delete them now. This mod uses the Retrofit mod as a base and adds 5 new factions from Kingdoms into the Grand Campaign, Jerusalem, Antioch, Ireland, Teutonic Order, and Lithuania. I have also added every new unit from Kingdoms and made many new improvements as well as adding some of the best ideas from other mods. I aim to try and not lose the flavour of the original game to much though. And I have therefore not added any new graphics into this mod at all! All new features are taken from Kingdoms only including new interfaces, movies, music, sounds and events. This mod plays and feels just like the original campaign, except for being much better and more challenging. The mod also uses Bigmap, which has been modded and improved extensively by myself.
Before you download this new full mod version be aware that this installer may not work for steam users. I am sorry about this but there is not much I can do to support Steam versions of Kingdoms. If you are determined enough to play my new mod update (or any other major mods). You may want to consider buying the retail version and saving yourself a lot of hassle. Trying to get a steam version to work with this just isn't worth it imo, good luck.
If you are experiencing any problems with the download of this file from filefront, it is recommended that you try disabling your virus protection software.
KGCM VERSION 3.0 DOWNLOAD LINK
First of all you will need to install KGCM Patch 4.0 for the mod to display correctly. Here is the link to the download below.
KGCM PATCH 4.1 DOWNLOAD LINK
This is no longer relevant- instead go straight to the 4.2 download
The 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. To uninstall the mod run the uninstaller in the start menu and then delete the folder kingdoms_grand_campaign_mod.
