    Installation
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    Requirements:
    - TATW 3.2 require that you first have installed the base 3.0 and patch 3.1, before patching to 3.2.
    - If you have installed a previous version of TATW (2.1 or older), it is recommended to delete the old version before installing TATW 3.2.
    (Note that TATW doesn't change any registry settings of your system, so you can also delete the old TATW folder "Third_Age" manually.)
    - TATW 3.2 requires the 'Medieval 2 - Kingdoms Expansion' and is compatible with the official patch 1.04 and 1.05. (One installed campaign of the 'Kingdoms Expansion' is enough)
    - Windows Vista, 7 and Windows 8 Users (both STEAM and NON STEAM M2TW Users): Apply these three steps explained in pictures HERE BEFORE installing TATW:
    a) Edit Security for you main M2TW folder/ or take Ownership of your main M2TW folder ( Both STEAM and NON STEAM M2TW Users need to do This step )
    b) Unhide hidden folders ( NON STEAM M2TW Users need to do This step )
    c) Check your VirtualStore folder for Medieval 2 Total War folder, and delete it if you find it there! ( NON STEAM M2TW Users need to do This step )

    Installation:
    - Install
    TATW_3.0_Part1of2.exe &

    TATW_3.0_Part2of2.exe &
    TATW_3.1_Patch.exe
    &
    TATW_3.2_Patch.exe

    into the default "Medievall II Total War" directory.
    (Normally this is: "Programs/SEGA/Medieval II Total War")
    If you have installed Medieval II into another folder, please select the folder manually.

    Best thing to do is:

    a) open your main M2TW folder, right mouse click in the Address Bar and press: Copy address as text.

    2) After installing ALL Third Age files, do not rename Third_Age_3 folder located in your ...\steam\steamapps\common\ Medieval 2 Total War\ mods folder, use either one of these methods:

    Make copy of medieval2.exe located in your main .\steam\steamapps\common\ Medieval 2 Total War folder

    Rename this copy to kingdoms.exe

    Start your mod through regular Third Age.BAT file ( the one present on your desktop as a Shortcut, or, the one present in your Third_Age_ 3 folder)

    to

    cd ..\..
    start medieval2.exe @mods\Third_Age_3\TATW.cfg

    Reserved

    Ill reply tomorrow

    edit: I'll reply when I have had some time to play

    edit2: So finally, my reply. It is amazing, the campaign map looks brilliant, the custom settlements are even better than I imagined. The new units have the highest possible quality (on the MED2 engine). My only complain is that Rivendell is too small for a decent battle and a lot of places are inaccessible (like the large bridge and the way to it).

    My suggestions:
    Finish the generic orc and elven settlements. After that generic dwarves (I'm now talking about some version 4.0 in the far future, when we're all old men and women)
