The Rest is up to you Happy Modding
These files are primarily intended as a base for further modding or you want to play it just as it is.
The zip file contains a mod folder called my_mod which should be installed in the Rome - Total War directory. So in there you will have directories:
Create a new desktop shortcut to your RTW, right click it and select 'properties' add a space and '-mod:my_mod'
after the last " in the target line (and preferably add -show_err as well) so line looks like:
"C:\activision\Rome - Total War\RomeTW.exe" -mod:my_mod -show_err
For RTW play the imperial_campaign option
(Historical battles and rise_of_rome provincial campaigns etc. are not included)
If you already have a folder named my_mod please rename either this folder or yours and amend the shortcuts
NB: This has been tested on an installation of RTW 1.5 installed.
NOTES FOR PLAYER
Although these files are actually only really intended as a base for future modding,
the mod folder does make the SPQR faction fully playable and should resolve any bugs
normally encountered in attempting to play them by removing
all hard-coding associated with their original name.
All the Roman factions start in their normal positions and are allied, but the senate missions,
senate offices and restrictions on initiating civil war are removed.
If playing the other Roman factions you should find the SPQR are as aggressive as any normal faction.
The technical principal behind the modification is sound and is used in major released mods - the effect
on campaign development of making the roman factions operate as individual factions has not been play-tested however.
NOTES FOR MODDERS
The only alterations made to the vanilla files are to change the internal name of the SPQR faction from
'romans_senate' to 'slavs'. descr_strat.txt is also altered to remove superfaction lines and make 'slavs' playable.
This has the dual effect of removing any hard-coding normally associated with the senate faction and also gets rid of the greyed out senate tab and senate offices button for the other roman factions and allows the SPQR slot to be
used for a fully playable faction.
Normal CA rules apply to their original content, otherwise the files are free to use as a base for further
If files are re-posted elsewhere please also include the contents of this read-me.
