    Default RodG 1.5 - Easy and painfree Installation



    Comments:


    • Reduction in size on disk - 2.92GB (present = 9062MB)
    • Reduction in installer size - 0.24GB (present = 5140MB)
    • The installer has to be in three parts because more then 2GB size is not supported by the installer program.

    Recommendation:


    Installation:

    1. Download the torrent file and extract it (size of installation set up: 15 files, 5.03GB)
    2. Run the torrent file with your preferred torrent client
    3. Run the EXE of part1 (DO files will be installed automatically)
    4. Run the EXE of part2 (DO files will be installed automatically)
    5. Run the EXE of part3 (DO files will be installed automatically)
    6. Download and install the patches
    7. Start the game

    Remarks for installation:

    • It should not be necessary to change the install directory unless it shows 'MyProduct' in the path. This means that the registry entry could not be found - either the registry is faulty or you are running a 64 bit system.
    • Do not cancel the installation unless you get an error message or your hard drive light has stopped flickering – some files are very big and it might appear that the installer is frozen.
    • If ‘MyProduct’ shows in the path, point the installer to the main directory of M2TW, not the mods directory!
    Download mirrors
    1. Alternative 'regular' download of all files is available at infracta.de - 100kbs for guests, 500kbs for members
    2. Pre-installed complete download of all files, patches and fixes up to 23rd November 2012 is available at Totalwar-forum. Simply extract the four 7z files into the mod folder and create a desktop shortcut of the 'Executable.bat' file.

    Details of the torrent:


    • The original torrent is only hosted on my machine, not on any hosting site.

    The way to do it Error reporting

    1. General = Due to a drain on resources the error log has been set to 'error' - the lowest setting. To find errors that are not obvious in the 'error' log, kindly set your log to 'trace' and then compress and attach the error log after a crash.
    2. Finding the log = it will be in the ...\Medieval II Total War\logs folder
    3. Setting the log to trace = open Configuration.cfg (in the Rage_of_dark_Gods main folder) with Notepad. In the [log] section, remove the hash ( # ) in front of the trace line and add a hash in front of the error line, save. The log will become rather big, but compressing will reduce it to approximately 5-10% of it's original size.
    4. Please provide details what happens, when it happens and which version (see selection screen, 'Gig version') you are running

    I just started 30 minutes ago, be patient, it's the initial seed as mentioned in the OP:

    My bandwidth isn't very big, it might take a while the first day or two until the download (initial seeding) is finished.
    Uploading at 45 kbps...

    Please be patient with the initial download - right now the initial seeding is at 12% with about thirty people downloading. Don't forget it's a little over 5GB and at my ridiculously low bandwidth this will take a while.
    Once the seeding is over the speed should rocket, depending on other members bandwidth.

    Patch Notice - 001

    While reducing and converting Kahvipannu's re-skinned settlements an error occurred with the converter which leads to a crash in siege battles. Check the second post for patch 001 to fix this issue.

    I know, I feel with you guys. Just imagine how long it took me last time to upload 1.4.4 (not to count the multiple uploads because some were corrupted).

    I am going to do a reboot of my machine before I go to bed (after 22:00 here now), hopefully that will improve the speed a bit.

    I have one question. Is this planned to be compatible with newer versions of ReallyBadAI?

    How would I plan for that? This one has got Germanicu5's battle AI if I remember correctly.

    If somebody wants to integrate the Really Bad AI then he\she is most welcome, I am just going to make sure this version runs as smooth as possible - text based sub mods are just asking for unnecessary pain, I am quite happy to leave that pain to whoever designs the sub mod.

    This installation is purposely kept in a different path\folder then the original - it avoids problems and mix ups, so please keep that in mind if you are installing other stuff on top of it later.
