    Install it and start Medieval 2 or Kingdoms over Steam. The Kingdoms launcher will come up, you click play. You can choose between all campaigns including Stainless Steel. Real easy, just don't use the shortcuts you get with your install. You can even use the Steam community features while playing as SS makes alt+tabbing and the chat overlay work without lags.

    EDIT: And before you start your first game, go to the Stainless Steel folder and run the config with your settings of choice. You can't do that from Steam/the game/the launcher.

    I did that exactly as you told but the game crashed before it got to the loading screen, i could choose Stainless Steel(6.4) from the list but it crashed, although the other campaigns(americas etc) worked. So what i did was i pressed "games"(above the "library" button)-add nonsteam game to my library- and then i browsed to the SS_Launcher and now it works.
    And i got medieval 2 complete edition(m2tw+kingdoms ofc) for only 10 euros ;D from steam.
    Thanks for the help anyways

    You, sir, are an absolute genius! I have been going crazy over how to start this bloody thing and nothing has worked. Then I came across your post and voila! Everything works beautifully.

    Did anyone have a problem with crashing custom games?
