    got a question, I downloaded stainless steel RR/RC and decided to mod the unit's stat, desc_mount and desc_character files, without using the unpacker
    so now I got a CTD in campaign battle.

    My question is, now that I have the unpacker, do I just need to unpack all and everything is fine or do I have to reinstall Medieval 2, unpack all, then install SS RR/RC then mod stuff?

    Has anyone run into the invisible unit problem when adding a new unit type?
    Were there but a tree in this godforsaken place i would have hanged myself.

    hi, i'm starting to have a historical battle error at Tannenberg. I wanted to check if its possible to unlock the non playable factions in the historical battles & i tried making HRE under the playable section in the descr_battle script in Medieval II Total War\data\world\maps\battle\custom\Tannenberg like this:

    ; Custom battle script generated by Romans Battle Editor

    battle Tannenberg
    playable
    poland
    hre ; <---added it here
    end
    nonplayable
    hre ; <---removed hre from here
    end

    when i saw it gave me a black screen while loading & CTD i replaced the descr_battle file with the original one which i backed up before proceeding. Still although i replaced the original file while loading it still gave me the black screen CDT (the black screen clears by pressing Esc) but only in Tannenberg battle. Since i always play the historical battles especially Tannenberg cos its my fav i would really like to know if i can fix this problem.
    I Tried to fix it myself by uninstalled the game , installed it again but still when i tried to play Tanneberg Historical the same black screen & CTD while loading it even tho reinstalled all over again

    Now i tried copying & pasting the

    [log]
    to = logs/system.log.txt
    level = * error

    to see the error report cos when it crashed it didn't say anything but honestly i can't understand anything of this or what to do & how to fix it.
    This is what was added in the log system file below, after i paste the [log] to = logs/system.log.txt thing in the game's .cfg file & after the battle crashed again.

    I need HELP, Sorry for the long post but if its possible i really like to fix it so that i could play my fav battle again.
    I swear i will never try to edit another file in my life unless 1000% tested.

    My problem is:
    I successfully integrated France to the Britannia campaign, it works perfectly.
    After that, I tried to integrate HRE.
    Now, when I go to the new campaign screen, pick the HRE(ore any other nation), and click start, the game returns to the Single Player menu and nothing happens, the campaign dont start.

    Anybody encountered similar problems?

    What does the log say?

    Default Re: Crashes and how to fix them

    The log say nothing because the game dont CTD. It just immediately return to the single player menu from the campaign menu after i hit start, without any loading.

    Albeit I dont know this logging thing at all. Is the logging is capable to show this kind of errors?

    It's a push back to menu error which is not that serious and easy to fix.
    Check the log in your logs folder and see or post on what it says.

    My log folder is empty. I dont know how to swith logging on. I read that I should write things in my mods .cfg file. But my mod dont have a cfg file.
    I simply extracted britannia, then modified the lines in export_descr_buildings.txt, export_descr_unit.txt and descr_stat.txt with notepad, and I launching the game with the --io.file_first method. I dont even know what that cfg launch means.

    So what should I do now?

    Um, I successfully activated the logging in medieval2.preference.cfg.

    Checking the logs solved the problem:
    I wrote Armoured Sergeants instead of Armored Sergeants.

    Thanks for the help.

    i`ve just finished installing this mod and tried to load the empires 1547,however after i pressed 5 and enter in the loading menu, the menu started to load for 4-6 secondsand then shut off automatically (seems it finished copying files,can`t be sure though).Then i tried to type in 0 but still nothing happened. After all i downloaded the True conquest.bat and managed to load the mod however mogol invasion was loaded instead of empires 1547, tried several times but mogol invasion came up everytime. please let me know ifthere is sth i havent done right. Great mod by the way.

    I have made a small mod that adds a bit of difference to the HRE. basically adds three units that work fine in custom battle. I have added all the units in EDB and added their text info in the text folder. Every time I try to start a campaign it loads, I get a flash of the campaign map then unknown error crash. I get no log file. If I remove EDB and EDU it works fine. what might I have messed up in these files that allows the game to work in custom but not campaign?

    The EDB entries are all in the relevant building locations, not all together like that.

    For the musketeers are already modified the Battle_Models file and all the units work in custom.

    I did change the color for hre in the descr_sm_factions file but it works fine withouth the EDU and EDB files.

    Well it looks alright to me put this in your .cfg file and then load the campaign again and then post the log here in a .zip file if the game crashes.
    Code:
    [log] 
    to = logs/M2TW.system.log.txt 
    level = * trace

    Default Re: Crashes and how to fix them

    I just did... and I feel a bit dumb. Somehow my desc_rebel_factions was messed up. so I deleted it and it now works. Since I didnt touch it, it must have been corrupted. That'll teach me to get rid of files I havent modded.

    Great, good to know that you got it working.

    Default Re: Crashes and how to fix them

    Sinde 10 hours I try to figur out, what the problem of a crash could be:

    The crash happens after bringing a new unit ingame, short after beginning of custom battle to test the new unit the crash happens with "unspecified error". I set my logfile to * trace, but I cannot find a solution.

    I read this tutorial and followed the advises, but I guess all must be right though.

    Please help me mates! Have a look at the EDU entry and/or the logfile, maybe you will figure out, what is wrong:

    I made an attempt at trying to rename a region and the game crashed when I tried to start a campaign.

    Code:
    Couldn't find settlement name 'Denver' in stringtable
    14:27:47.435 [system.rpt] [error] Medieval 2: Total War encountered an unspecified error and will now exit.
    I have no idea what this means or how to fix it
