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.
The installation path has to end in the M2TW main folder (...\Medieval II Total War), nowhere else!
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!

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.
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.
