The fixes that should be picked up automatically include:
- Fixed exploit that allowed certain characters' stats to be raised by repeatedly saving the game.
- Fixed the family tree disappearing when a princess is married to General who becomes the Faction Leader.
- Fixed soft-lock that occurred with multiple armies on the battle map.
- Fixed crash that occurred when disbanding a unit whilst merging two armies.
- Crash after auto-resolving a siege battle from a hotseat save game no longer occurs.
- Crash that occurred when loading a battle from the campaign map edge no longer occurs.
- Kingdoms no longer crashes when playing battles after unpacking the game's data.
- Improved siege auto-resolve.
- DX10 Shadow bug
There are some relevant minor data fixes that will NOT get picked up:
- Fixed a number of inconsistencies between units' speech and their unit cards.
- Small black rectangles no longer appear on the campaign map.
I think most of the other fixes in the patch are not relevant for the Retrofit Mod.
Without re-testing all areas of the Retrofit Mod with the patch I cannot explicitly state that the Kingdoms Patch is fully compatible with Retrofit.
I can state that I believe the Kingdoms Patch should be fully compatible and doesn't change any existing data formats in the Retrofit Mod (or other Kingdoms Mods).
So it looks like most of the data (ie text file) changes are specific to the individual Kingdoms campaigns. The hardcoded changes mentioned should be picked up automatically by the Kingdoms.exe file.
after 45min of searching various websites including segas
" O F F I C I A L " website , which i might add kept me looped at the choose language screen so i had to look at cached sega-webpages, i could not find this 1.5 patch at all.
after such a time of frustration i finally find this page in the google search with a working downloadlink on last page.
very disapointed at the difficulty ive been presented with just to find the 'latest' patch.
Full marks on grave robbing and extra bonus points on not using google ...
2nd hit on the page google brings you to is the sega download site.
Ok, I'm having trouble installing the 1.5 patch to kingdoms and hoping someone can tell me how to get it going so I can move on and start adding updating mods... This is real frustrating. The patch starts up fine and starts running but it wont update the separate campaigns ie..americas, teutonic etc.. every campaign once updating the installer stops and says: Error: invalid or missing target D:\Program Files (x86)\SEGA\Medieval 2 Total War\Mods\americas\packs\localized.pack Failed to update Medieval Total war americas...Please apply this update again.. and then prompts me to uninstall americas, teutonic etc...Delete all the folders and reinstall...That shouldn't make any difference. I have just uninstalled and reinstalled the whole game from medieval 2 twice...as the propmt then tells me to do.. a fresh install to the D drive, which is on a second partition on my hard drive.. It's a new computer, and I'm having trouble setting things up now that I have the internet. I've looked into troubleshooting this problem everywhere and found nothing related... it should be something simple i presume: Somehow I have to make it see the campaigns in the folder but the patch gives me no directory options...I'm lost! please help. Maybe I need to install this damn game to a different type of folder...I dunno what to think.
