I played this game years ago and had it all set up perfect. My memory is terrible and I have no recollection of how I set it all up. Now that I have a new computer with Windows 8 and I search online for answers, I can't find any that work.
I install the base game and then kingdoms through Steam. I also own the box version. I can't remember if I used that or the steam version but I have a feeling I figured out how to make the steam version work.
What I need from you guys is to know how to get it working again. Everytime I launch CCM2 or retrofit 1.0, it says:
ERROR: Setup was unable to find a valid Medieval II Total War installation.
Custom Campaign Mod 2/Retrofit 1.0 requires Medieval II: Total War Kingdoms version 1.05.000
I checked the version, its 1.05 despite it saying its nonexistent. I tried launching the mod file in the folder with kingdoms.exe, that didnt work either. I tried making a SEGA folder like other posts recommended but it didn't work and I don't remember having to do that last time. I'm wary of making reg changes and I know for certain that I never did that, period.
I'm at my wits end and I want to enjoy some good old times with MW2 again but I'm not going to spend a whole day messing with this, if anyone can help me, I'd appreciate it. Or else, I'm just going to say forget it and uninstall.
