    Default How to unpatch E:TW?

    Hi All,

    I'm trying to find an early version of E:TW that used (in my opinion) a superior sea trade route model: How can I unpatch E:TW to version 1.0 then play & patch incrementally?

    Many thanks.

    It is possible to tell the game to ignore a patch. I found advice online on how to do this to reduce siege lag by stopping the game from using the final patch. You simply need to:-

    - Open the folder C:/ProgramFiles(x86)/Steam/steamapps/common/Empire Total War/data
    (that's the path to the folder on this Windows 7 PC - if your computer is different then the path may vary)

    - Rename patch5.pack to patch5.packOld

    When I tried that, siege lag was significantly reduced, especially in India (where it had been especially bad before). However, I now use the Shokh Hates Sieges mod instead of renaming patch5.pack.

    I haven't tried renaming the other patches (in the same folder) to stop them working, but (in theory) renaming them should prevent the game from using them.
