Hello fellow RS2 players...
Saw a few threads regarding problems even being able to select the campaign. I finally got it working tonight, and it was well worth the trouble. Here is the problem I had:
-- Despite what was set in the launcher, I could only access historical and custom battles --
I discovered the cause was a faulty "LaunchSteamBI.bat". If I understand it correctly, the launcher pretty much just writes a batch file and runs it for you; this is the cmd window you see when the mod starts. Smart way to work, Unix-like. It's cool, too, because you can shortcut right to this batch file to launch again same as last time and continue your campaign.
In any case, I noticed the following typo in the last line of the batch file:
Looks like a little string manipulation mixup from the launcher, which borked the mod setting. I modified it to:Code:RomeTW-BI.exe -mod:-mod:play_rome -show_err -nm -movie_cam
And just like that, all was well. I hope this helps some of you out there trying this great mod. And to the mod developers...may this bug report be easily replicated and picked up for the next patch build.Code:RomeTW-BI.exe -mod:play_rome -show_err -nm -movie_cam
Now I need to see why historical battles crash for me...Is PC gaming great or what???
