    Default Download link for RS 2.5

    Since the installation process is causing quite a lot of issues, and the "2.0 + 2.5 patch" install is rather complicated, I've created a new installer which combines everything in one file.

    There is nothing new in it, that is none of the hotfixe that might have been released after the 2.5 patch.
    This is not RS 2.6 or a new patch !

    To install it, simply download the exe (about 1.3 GB), and double click to launch it.
    The installation process should be straightforward.

    Download link :
    http://ge.tt/6bTWWQN/v/0
    http://www.strategyinformer.com/pc/r...mod/45720.html
    http://www.moddb.com/mods/roma-surre...a-surrectum-25 (use this one if the bandwidth is spent on the first one)


    Here are the complete installation steps for RS 2.5 using this installer.

    1 Have a clean RTW install (that is, no mods installed in it or any modified files) patched to 1.5, plus any add-ons as applicable patched to 1.6 for BI and 1.9 for ALX.
    If you are unsure your install is clean, the best thing to do is to try to start a campaign.

    2 Copy that folder, and paste it to the location of your choice.
    Do NOT put it in the Program files ! (For Steam users who have no choice, be aware that you may encounter some issues with the launcher.)
    The best thing to do is to create a new folder at the root of your hard drive (C:\ usually) called games, and copy/paste the RTW folder there.
    The resulting path would be C:\Games\RTW.

    3 Check that inside this RTW folder, you have the exe(s), as well as several folders including data.
    You might want to rename the RTW folder to something like Roma Surrectum II.
    The new path is going to be C:\Games\Roma Surrectum II.

    4 Double click on the installer called Roma Surrectum 2.5.exe (you might not see the .exe part if you have the file extension view disabled in windows).

    5 Once you the installer asks you where to install RS 2.5, you'll have to click on the "Browse" button, and select the Roma Surrectum II folder we have just created. Click ok.
    Under "Destination Folder", you should now see the correct path, that is in our case : C:\Games\Roma Surrectum II.
    If you are in the least bit unsure about the installation path and this step, it is highly advised that you follow exactly the steps as described above.

    6 Now click on the next button, and change the default name of the Start Menu item if you so desire.
    It is advised to leave it as it is.

    7 The mod should install itself, as well as create a shortcut on your desktop.
    You should now be able to play RS 2.5.


    Warning : It has been reported that the launcher does not have admin right by default.
    If you encounter troubles with the launcher, go to C:\Games\Roma Surrectum II\launcher.
    Right click on the Roma Surrectum II.exe file, select properties.
    Go to the compatibility tab (the second one from the left in WIN 7), and check the "Run as an administrator" checkbox.
    Apply the change, and it now should be ok.


    Here is the original post for RS 2.0 where you can find more information about the mod.

    A small question, i downloaded and installed Roma Surrectum II at midnight half-sleeping and at the same time installing EB, too. So there were quite a lot of copying and installing here and there. Now i can't remember if i have installed the 2.5 patch on top of RS2. Is it shown somewhere ? (the 2.5 patch is on the computer, just not sure if it has been run).

    If you downloaded RS from the link in this thread, there is no need for any patch, it's already included.
    Otherwise, to check the version, it's written in the launcher : 2.5 is referred as 2.2b.

    Yes, it would appear that this site is severely limited in term of bandwidth, about 50GB/day, that's about 35 downloads per day.
    That's sad because it works great.
    I'm currently uploading it somewhere else, which shouldn't have any bandwidth limit.

    I'm afraid you'll have to wait until tomorrow to download this, it's going to take me the whole night uploading it.

    I'm having problems getting this to work for steam, I'm installing the file to the RTW file in my steam folder and when i try to start the game in the launcher it says there is an error and that I install the game to the wrong locations. I watched the video on the site for installing to steam but i think it was for an older download because there are RS2, RS2.5, and the beta file in the video

    Yes, the site is great, but the bandwidth is low.
    I'm currently uploading it to moddb, I'm at 73%, so if all goes well it should be uploaded in a few hours.
    My internet crashed yesterday, so I had to abort it, I hope it's not going to happen again.

    It has been uploaded, but there's apparently an authorization phase; I don't know how long it is going to take.
    I hope it is going to be solved rather quickly.

    Otherwise, the current file was available between midnight and 7 a.m. UTC last night, you can try to fight for it tomorrow if you want.

    To post a screen, you first need to upload it to some image hosting site like imageshack or photobucket. (Just google them).
    Once it is uploaded there, you should be given a link.
    Click on the "Insert Image" button at the top of the text editor here, and paste the link in the field.
    You should now be able to post screenshots.

    Yeah, I know.
    At worst, there's still the old installation files, which are still working.
    I've uploaded the file, but there is now the authentication process that I have no control of. I'll let know now when the new link is up.

    I seriously didn't expect that many download each day though.


    It look like it has been installed correctly.
    What's the exact error message that you have?
    In the mean time, I'd advise to launch the mod manually with Steam, have a look at this thread to see how.

    Not by me I'm afraid.
    The problem with a torrent is that someone has to seed it, and I simply can't. I'm moving to a flat tomorrow, and I've no idea if I'm going to have an internet connection, or how good it is going to be.
    Now if someone else want to create one, we can include the link, but we're not going to be responsible for it.

    Isn't the new link working?
