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

    ===============================================
    INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS FOR LOTR-TW PACK v3.02:
    ===============================================

    0) You must have the game Rome Total War: Alexander installed!

    If you have a previous version of lotr-tw mod already installed, it is recommended to uninstall it, and then to remove the whole folder "...\alexander\lotrtw\", in order to get rid of all remaining temporary files. Note this will remove old lotrtw savegames and preferences too.

    This mod uses its own folder "\alexander\lotrtw", for most of the files. It uses the folder "\Mods" for the files related to translations and submods. Only one file will be placed in the main "\Data" folder, but it will not overwrite any original file.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    STEAM VERSION ON WINDOWS

    1) Extract the content of the LOTR-TW pack to the main game folder where RomeTW-ALX.exe is located.
    The Steam version uses to be: "C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Rome Total War Alexander\"

    2) In your Steam game list, right click on your Rome Total War: Alexander game, click properties, and in the general tab click "Set Launch Options". In the space provided, type in this text:

    -mod:alexander/lotrtw

    This way, when you launch the game, it will load lotrtw mod instead of vanilla alexander. Delete this text if you want to play vanilla alexander again.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    DISC VERSION ON WINDOWS

    1) Extract the content of the LOTR-TW pack to the main game folder where RomeTW-ALX.exe is located.
    The original retail Disc location usually is: "C:\Program Files\Actision\Rome - Total War\"

    2) Create a short-cut to launch the game:

    2.1) Right-click on your RomeTW-ALX.exe and select 'Create Shorcut'
    2.2) Right-click on the new short-cut and choose Properties
    2.3) In the "Target" window in properties, ADD this line at the end: -mod:alexander/lotrtw so the line looks something like this:

    "C:\Program Files\Actision\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.

    3) Use this short-cut to play the mod.

    Alternately, you may also launch the mod using the "lotr-tw launcher.bat" file placed in the main game folder.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    STEAM VERSION ON LINUX (WITH WINE)

    It is possible to install the Windows version of Steam, under Linux, by using Wine. This way you can install and play the Windows version of Rome Total War: Alexander. Just use this command to launch Steam:
    wine Steam.exe -no-cef-sandbox

    The rest is the same as Steam version on Windows (see above).

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    DISC VERSION ON LINUX (WITH WINE)

    1) Extract the content of the LOTR-TW pack to the main game folder where RomeTW-ALX.exe is located.

    2) With Wine v1.8.5, it works for me by simply executing:
    wine RomeTW-ALX.exe -mod:alexander/lotrtw

    You may also use the file "lotr-tw launcher.sh" placed in the main game folder.

    3) Since I updated to Wine v2.2.1, the splash screen is shown, but it crashes just before the intro.
    For me, it worked to disable the lib winegstreamer.
    Execute winecfg -> go to "libraries" tab -> select winegstreamer -> press "add", then "edit" -> choose "disable".

    I have played on Ubuntu this way, even online, and I did not notice any problem, except the response of the mouse being a bit loose.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ON WINDOWS 10

    Note that older disc versions may not work at all on Windows 10, due to lack of support related to SECDRV.SYS

    1) You might need to run the game as administrator, in compatibility mode for Windows 7:
    * Right-click on RomeTW-ALX.exe and go to "Properties".
    * Go to the tab called "Compatibility" and look all the way down to "Change settings for all users". Click that.
    * Select the box called "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" and select "Windows 7" from the scroll-down menu.
    * Also check the box saying "Run as administrator".

    2) It seems the screen resolution in the game preferences (both strategy and battle) must fit your desktop resolution:
    * Open the file: "...\alexander\lotrtw\preferences\preferences.txt"

    * Search for this text:
    AA_QUALITY:AA_OFF
    STRATEGY_RESOLUTION:1024x768
    STRATEGY_MAX_RESOLUTION:2048x1536
    STRATEGY_32_BIT:TRUE
    BATTLE_RESOLUTION:1024x768
    BATTLE_MAX_RESOLUTION:2048x1536
    BATTLE_32_BIT:TRUE

    * Replace "1024x768" by your desktop resolution, for example "1920x1080". No need to change anything else.

    * To know your actual resolution: right-click on your desktop (wallpaper), click on "Display Settings", and press "Advanced Display Settings".

    3) You need to launch the game in windowed mode.
    Follow the installation instructions for Windows (see above), but when it says to insert:
    -mod:alexander/lotrtw

    you have to insert:
    -mod:alexander/lotrtw -ne

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    COMMON ISSUES

    On Windows Vista/7/8 it is recommended to disable UAC (User Account Control) in Control Panel while installing the game.
    In order to avoid issues with file permissions, it is recommended to install the game to a folder different than \Documents and Settings, or \Program Files.
    Alternately, it should be possible to copy the whole game folder, to paste it somewhere else, and then to run the game from there.

    If you still have problems to get the mod working, and you do not care to overwrite the original game files of your current installation, you can try to copy all the folders located inside lotrtw folder (data and preferences):
    ...\alexander\lotrtw\
    and to paste them into alexander folder, overwriting everything:
    ...\alexander\
    After that, you do not need any short-cut or launching option to run the mod, just execute RomeTW-ALX.exe


    ===============================================
    SUBMODS AND TRANSLATIONS :
    ===============================================

    How to activate submods like "Campaigns Addon" or "Vegetation Addon", as well as Spanish or Italian translations:

    1) Execute the program JSGME.exe (JoneSoft Generic Mod Enabler).
    2.a) Select the translation or mod in the window "Available Mods" and click the button ">" until it is moved to "Activated Mods".
    2.b) OR use the button "<<" to return to original version.
    3) Then you can close the JSGME program.

    More info about this tool can be found in the file:
    ...\Mods\JSGME_Help.txt

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    CAMPAIGNS ADDON (by CapnDan)

    It includes an improved balance for the main campaign, and some alternative provincial campaigns. I suggest to use it to play new games, because it will surely be used as base for future versions of the mod.

    The translations are not compatible with these campaigns.

    For the full list of changes, see the file:
    ...\Lotrtw_Readme_Campaigns_Addon.txt

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    VEGETATION ADDON (by Non-binary Person)

    It includes alternative vegetation, and some other changes to the battle environments.
    It uses resources made by: Non-binary Person (RTR8), Alin/Tux (Europa Barbarorum), Tone (Roma Surrectum), Eorl (Fourth Age Total War), Nobiax/Yughues, Creative Assembly (M2TW), textures.com.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ENHANCED HDR GRAPHICS

    If you launch the game with this HDR filter enabled, when you see the green text on the screen, press alt+tab to minimize to desktop, and then return to the game again.

    Some options can be adjusted inside the file:
    ...\Mods\Enhanced HDR graphics\enbseries.ini

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    TROLL FIX

    It is a workaround to avoid the crashes caused by these Troll units on some computers. It reduces to zero the distance at which these units are rendered in 3d, so they are always shown 2d sprites (with much lower quality), but this way they never cause crashes.
    In order to work, the unit detail, in video settings, must be any value lower than "highest".

    This patch seems to be savegame compatible, and also compatible online with people who did not enable it (useful because many computers are not affected by this bug).


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

    The campaign of lotr-tw uses a script file that is automatically executed when you start a new campaign, and it enables several unique features while running in the background.

    When you load a saved game, the scripts must be restarted again. In some cases it is automatic, otherwise you need to:
    * PRESS ANY BUTTON or select any of your settlements or armies,
    * then CLICK ON THE ADVISOR PORTRAIT WHEN IT POPS UP.
    (The advisor will show a text message to confirm the scripts are running).

    You can verify that scripts are working if there is no winter season. If you see snowy terrain at the beginning of a turn, then the scripts are not active. Try reloading the savegame again and be sure to click the advisor icon when it appears, before pressing end of turn.

    Playing some turns with the scripts inactive is not going to break the game, but you might miss some features, and the balance of the campaign might not be exactly the same.

    If you want to start a new campaign, it is best to exit the game first to ensure that the old scripts in temporary memory do not prevent the new ones from starting. Also, it is recommended to choose the lowest ADVICE LEVEL (NO ADVICES) because advice messages could potentially block scripted messages.

    Detailed info about the features enabled by the scripts can be found at:
    ...\alexander\lotrtw\Lotrtw_Scripts.txt


    ===============================================
    RECOMMENDED VIDEO SETTINGS FOR SLOW 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 = NORMAL (or up to LARGE)
    Unit detail = MEDIUM (do not use HIGHEST because it disables the use of 2d sprites)
    Effects = LOW (or up to HIGH)
    Vegetation = MEDIUM

    Battle Shadows = OFF (buildings and vegetation look better if shadows are disabled)
    Smoke/Dust = ON (or OFF, but the battles do not look the same without it)
    Reflections/Glints = OFF
    Desynchronise = OFF
    Unit Shaders = ON (it could reduce performance if disabled)

    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.

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

    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.

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

    i tried reinstalling it to the rome total war folder, the alexander folder, and the containing folder for all the expansions, which one does it need to be installed to?

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

    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 is mod folder or overwrite vanilla?

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

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