    Default Re: DOWNLOADS: LOTR-TW 2.0, AND LATEST PATCH 2.08

    ===============================================
    INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: LOTR-TW OPEN BETA 2.0:
    ===============================================

    1. You must first have Rome Total War: Alexander already installed!
    2. Run LOTRTW_v2.0_OB.exe
    3. Make sure you point the installer to your Rome - Total Rome folder
    4. Once installed, right-click and drag your RomeTW-ALX.exe to the desktop and Create Shorcut
    5. Right-click on the new short-cut and choose Properties
    6. In the "Target" window in properties, ADD this line at the end (there is a space before the dash -):
    -mod:alexander/lotrtw so the line may look like this:

    "C:\Program Files\Activision\Rome - Total War\RomeTW-ALX.exe" -mod:alexander/lotrtw
    Note that it may not look exactly as that. DO NOT CHANGE OR DELETE ANYTHING BETWEEN THE QUOTATION MARKS.

    7. Once done, right-click again on the short-cut and rename it to LOTR-TW

    You're done and can play "The Lord of the Rings: Total War" 2.0 Open Beta.


    ===============================================
    INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS FOR PATCH 3.0:
    ===============================================

    You need LOTR-TW Open Beta v2.0 already installed (Mod for Alexander TW, expansion of Rome TW):

    0. Install "LOTRTW_v2.0b_OB" in the main RTW folder where RomeTW-ALX.exe is placed.
    You do not need to follow the other instructions included in this 2.0 version (shortcut, video intro, etc), the patch 3.0 will do it automatically.

    1. Install this patch "LOTRTW_PATCH_v2.0_to_v3.0.exe" in the same folder where RomeTW-ALX.exe is placed.
    It will copy one file into main Data folder, but it will not overwrite any original file.

    2. A shortcut with the name "Lord of The Rings - Total War" will be created in your Desktop, to launch the mod.
    You may also use the file "lotr-tw launcher.bat" placed in the main RTW folder. Or to create your own shortcut.

    It is possible to install the v3.0 over any previous patch 2.0x, but a clean installation is recommended.
    If you install it over v2.06 or v2.08, you first need to uninstall them, and then to remove the whole "lotrtw" folder, in order to get rid of all remaining temporary files:
    ...\alexander\lotrtw\


    ===============================================
    LATEST CHANGES:
    ===============================================

    - New custom cities: including generic settlements, walls specific for each culture, models of buildings for each different city level, and unique models for 16 of the best known cities.
    - New battlemap enviroments: including terrain generator, ground textures, trees, grass, light conditions...
    Based on RS2 impressive work, but adjusted to LOTRTW with new unique climates and terrains.
    - New units: including Ents, retextured uruks and haradrims, enhanced projectile models, and more than 10 additional units.
    - Improved campaign map: terrain textures, regional borders, new climatic map, relocation of cities and obstacles to enhance AI behavior, and added some new regions.
    - Rebalanced campaign: readjusted the effect of most buildings, the population growth and trade system, the recruitment trees, and the areas to recruit special units.
    - Rebalanced unit stats for Multiplayer games, after all these years testing them in online battles.
    Readjusted also the results of autoresolve battles in campaign.
    - Fixed several bugs from previous versions.


    ===============================================
    LAUNCHING THE SCRIPTS:
    ===============================================

    The campaign of lotr-tw 2.0 uses a script file that is automatically executed when the campaign starts and it runs all the time in the background. To play the campaign properly, the script should be relaunched every time you load a savegame, just by clicking the advisor portrait when it pop ups.

    To launch the script:
    - If you started the campaign (not from a saved game), then it's automatically loaded up.
    - If you just loaded a savegame:
    CLICK ANY BUTTON or select anyone of your settlement or officer, and then CLICK ON THE ADVISOR WHEN IT POPS UP.

    If you want to start a new campaign, better exit the game first, because the scripts of the old campaign could prevent the scripts of the new one from being launched.
    Also, try to choose the lower ADVICE LEVEL (NO ADVICES) when you start a new campaign because the game's advices could mask some script messages.

    To verify that scripts are working properly, you can check there is no winter season. If you see snowy terrain every 2 turns, then the scripts are not active. Try reloading the savegame again and this time click the advisor when it appears.
    If you have played some turns with scripts inactive, there should not be mayor problems, but you would have alter the gameplay balance, and some scripts could not work properly when you reactivate them.


    ===============================================
    RECOMENDED SETTINGS FOR LOW PCs:
    ===============================================

    Anti-aliasing = OFF
    Terrain = HIGH (MEDIUM looks much worse and I don't notice much performance differences)
    Buildings = LOW
    Grass = LOW (or OFF)
    Unit size = SMALL (up to LARGE)
    Unit detail = HIGH (No less than LOW)
    Effects = LOW
    Vegetation = MEDIUM

    Battle Shadows = OFF
    Smoke/Dust = ON (The battles do not look the same without it)
    Reflections/Glints = OFF
    Desynchronise = OFF
    Unit Shaders = ON (very important, since it could reduce performance if dissabled)

    any idea about forecasted date for the new release?? I'm pretty sure that it will include ents but I'm not sure if finally in 2.1 the Balrog will be a general based in Moria and not only an assassin ....

    The development of the mod is paused at the time, due to Wlesmana being unable to work on it. As far as I know, there will be ents in 2.1 indeed, but I don't know anything about the Ballrog. Anyway, I think Gollum has made a Ballrog model, you could ask him for more information.

    Will The Last Alliance and Arda Total War be properly finished, released and downloadable in the nest releases? I really am interested in those as well.

    That message appears when you install the mod in wrong folder. When you launch the installer you have to select the same destination where the RomeTW-ALX.exe is placed.

    It must be intalled in Rome tw folder, where both RomeTW.exe and RomeTW-ALX.exe are placed. By default it uses to be:
    Code:
    C:Program Files\Activision\Rome - Total War\
    If you got the game throught Steam, you can find here how to install the mod:

    I suggest not to talk about that in this forums.

    I do not think renaming folders or files to be a solution, you just need to install the mod into the proper folder.
    I'd suggest you to install the mod into a temporary (and void) folder, and then to copy the files manually to your Rome folder. This way it might be easier for you to view the folder structure and to copy them to right place.

    If you have installed other mods it may also be the cause of your problems.

    It does not overwrite any vanilla file.
    But, it does copy some files into main data folder, so it is not completely modfoldered.
