    Installation Instructions

    The game is based on RTW 1.5/1.9, and is modfoldered, does not alter the original game, although there are some optional files (see later).

    >> With STEAM - Alex.exe:
    The mod should be in place: Ie: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Rome Total War Alexander\catw05
    Go to Steam, on the Alexander TW properties, then "Set Launch Options", then paste: -nm -show_err -mod:catw05 -noalexander
    Or use the Steam Mods Launcher made by Paedric.

    >> Install the mod, the old way:
    1. Check you have a fresh (unmodded) RTW 1.5
    2. Then you need to download the mod above
    3. Use a program like 7zip to extract the mod folder into your RTW folder. (where you installed rtw to for example c:\games\rome total war)
    4. Right click the RTW exe you want to use (rtw/bi/alx) then right click that exe and select the option to send a shortcut of it to your desktop.
    5. Now go to your desktop, right click the shortcut you just sent to your desktop and say properties.
    6. A new box should come up, on the left side of the box near the top there should be a word 'target' move your cursor into the white area with the text then go to the very end part one space (just click the area just past the quotations so you see the very small but ordinary flashing black bar that indicates you can start typing) now press your spacebar so you are exactly one space away from the quotations and add this
    -nm -show_err -mod:catw
    7. Say apply on the lower right of your properties box then click ok and you are ready to play by clicking on that same shortcut you just created. You can also rename the shortcut to catw if you want.


    >> More in depth instructions on how to create a new shortcut to play the mod:

    To create a new shortcut for Classical Age Total War carefully follow each of these steps.
    For more information on editing the Command Line of Rome Total War look here: http://rtw.heavengames.com/rtw/mods/...ne/index.shtml
    Open Windows Explorer, then go to your base Rome Total War folder, find the RomeTW-BI.exe file (or whichever exe you prefer), and right click on it.
    An options box will pop up.
    Move your mouse down to "Send To". Another box will pop up along side the first one.
    Move your mouse over to "Desktop (Create Shortcut)", and click on it with your left mouse button.
    Now go to your Desktop and you will see the new shortcut there, named "Shortcut to RomeTW.exe"
    Right-click on the new shortcut, and a box will pop up.
    Click on Properties in this box.
    A new window will open up, with three tabs across the top. If the Shortcut tab was not already selected, click on it.
    Click in very right end of the box named Target.
    Now add in a space and then the following text: -nm -show_err -mod:catw
    (space after the colon is needed)
    So your Target box should look something like: "C:\Program Files\Rome Total War\RomeTW.exe" -nm -show_err -mod:catw
    Now click on Apply.

    To rename it something more descriptive click on the General tab.
    There will be a field at the very top of the window. Type in: CATW.
    Now click on Ok. You are done.

    Optional: Included is a desktop shortcut which you may wish to use. While you still have the Shortcut Properties window open, click on the Shortcut tab, then click on the Change Icon button at the bottom of that window. A Change Icon window will appear. Click on the browse button to navigate to your RTW\catw folder. You will find a .ico files there. Select the you would like by double-clicking on it. Then back at the Change Icon window click on Ok. Then finally click on OK again to close the Shortcut Properties window.

    Feel free to post here if you have any problem related to installation.

    CATW 2.0 content (25/4/2015)
    How the Force Diplomacy Script works:
    how to force the AI to accept a proposal :

    First you must click the "?" in the upper right of the diplomacy box. Then you can force a faction to accept your offer by clicking on the "show me how" button.
    This script is very useful to prevent the AI from breaking alliances.

    - Standalone patch. All others included in this one.
    - Animations overhaul. Hundreds of new animations specifically designed for CATW. Adding to the immersive feel of battles.
    - DMB fixes of all texture errors, all texture code adjusted accordingly.
    - Expect a stable campaign now without crashes during battles. Report back if there are and which units were in the army.
    - Everything in the DMB is fine. Only a file with improper dds encoding would cause a crash when loading a battle from now on with this patch.
    - Several errors fixed in EDB and EDU.
    - New formations from sinhuet modified for CATW are in it.
    - Includes an alexander.exe patch as promised by coco, it will be playable on alexander now, in fact its highly recommended.

    - A specific adjustment to formations_ai to calibrate it for alexander.exe to prevent CTD's upon ambush.
    - Bugfix for CTD upon winning campaign conditions for romans.

    Sure, to click on the image should redirect you to the link. Anyway I'll add the links alone under the picture.

    Edit: Done.

    I have a slight problem with getting the mod going. I get the message to insert the correct cd-rom(?). Just as instructed, I have installed RTWvers.1.0. in Program Files/Activision/RTW as clean unmodded folder. I then continued installing BIvers.1.4 according to the same path in to the RTW-Folder. I then updated the RTW-patchvers.1.6 in to the same RTW-folder. I was confirmed in opening options in the game that i had the vers. 1.6 installed. So far so good. The game works. I then installed catwvers.1.1 in to my RTW-folder and installing the patch 1.2. in to the data folder of catw1.1. as instructed and clicking on the shortcut (no icon picture) will not recognise the cd-rom. What is going wrong? thank you for your good advice.

    Well, in fact i have the same problem with seven on a dell area51, if you have the very first disc edition of RTW (1.0). It seems that the autolaunch is not really propertly seen by seven, then re-insert you CDrom to lanch again vanilla tw, then launch catw shortcut. It will perhaps decect that two instances of RTW are running and ask to shut one of these (then close vanilla one) otherwise, just let it load the mod. Hope that helps...

    Hi, Cocobongo, great work! I had a question for you. When i get out from the game the system always says to me something like "Rome TW has had a problem and must to close" (or something like that). I´ve had the same "problem" in all the versions of your mod, but it does not seem to cause any kind of trouble when playing a new or old game. It´s just annoying, but i´d rather to get out of the mod normally (if it is possible). I´m playing always when i use your great mod with a fresh and new installation o Rome TW (gold). Thanks for all!

    Unfortunately i don't have the gold version of RTW, but the very first one, RTW 1.0 (upgraded of course). So they are side effects that i only know by your testings. The bug is currently related to a mispelling DMB faction "numidian" instead of "numidia". I already corrected it long ago. But the problem if i do that is another "generic bug" rose up behind, during the process of loading that just making primary mod loading impossible. This generic bug could be related with so many files that i couldn't actually solve it in an easier way than making the whole damn thing once again, line after line, almost a year of re-coding and testing. But what i know is that it is narrowly related to EDU which i don't want to downgrade for campaign reasons... So i have to choose between a completely unplayable game, weak independant factions you can easily steamroll, or having the current version, with a bug after leaving.
