If you should experience any issues after the installation, please make sure that the installer has deleted the following files from your BC installation folder:
For Vista OS find map.rwm file in: Medieval II Total War/broken_crescent/data/world/maps/base and then look for the Compatibility files folder up top and it's in there.

Known issuesThe installer does not work correctly with M2TW used via Steam.The AOR recruitment scripts seem not to work correctly with the US Gold Edition, which should have patch v1.03 but displays v1.02 under options.The option Quick Battle will lead to CTD. Choose Custom Battle instead.
What other BC versions do I need?

Does BC work with Kingdoms?
BC 2.02 works if you have Kingdoms installed, however you must use the MTW2 disc and MTW2 executable to launch the game.
Is BC 2.02 safe-game compatible with previous version?
BC 2.02 is not save game compatible and it will require starting of the new campaign.
Does BC 2.02 work with other mods?
BC 2.02 will not interfere with other mods if installed properly.
