Thread: Third Age Total War for Mac: Now that Macs have M2?

    Kinda sorta theory about custom settlements with gates has slightly more confirmation as the Custom Erebor and Hobbiton Settlements do not crash the game.

    you need to download xQuartz as well bud - then have them both open at the same time. Then drag the part 1 of a mod on to the wine app and it will begin

    There is a high probability that the programs used for making custom settlement files are not Mac compatible/friendly. Windows versions are mostly backward compatible with older programs/software, maybe that's not the case when it comes to Apple's products.

    1. Download the mod you want, and open the installer using a program like Wine.
    2. Just make a folder on your desktop and install all the mod files in there.
    3. Move the folder "Third_Age_3" (or something like that, the entire mod anyways) into the Mod folder where the 4 Kingdoms campaigns are (Americas, Teutonic etc).
    4. Launch Medieval Total War 2, and in the Launcher Option window, go to the "Advanced" tab at the top of the window.
    5. Toggle the box that says "Advanced options" and in the text area right next to the box write "--features.mod=mods/NAME OF THE MOD FOLDER", so for my Third Age mod it would be "--features.mod=mods/Third_Age_3"
    6. Enjoy
    Does this change if you're using steam?

    Are you using Windows+Steam M2TW, or Mac+Steam M2TW, or, Mac+Windows+Steam M2TW?

    Let me know if this works for anyone - it didn't for me:

    Please try the following:

    - Navigate to Steam > Right click Medieval II > Properties > Local files tab > Browse Local Files > Medieval2Data > mods
    - Rename an existing folder there to something else, e.g. british_isles1
    - Paste the desired mod folder into the location with all the other campaigns and name it to the original name of the folder you just renamed, i.e british_isles
    - In Steam click Play and choose the Britannia DLC option
    - On the pre-game options window select the Advanced tab, check the Advanced box and paste "@mods\british_isles\TATW.cfg" into the field there
    - Click Play and The Third Age mod should launch

    Please let me know if this helps.

    Best regards,

    Gerard

    Mac+Steam M2TW. I used wine and downloaded into the suggested file locations, I just get an instant crash when I try to run the mod, including using the 2 suggested advanced option approaches that you and another guy suggested on here.

    Have you tried the old Steam Windows method:

    - Navigate to Steam ...> Medieval II > mods folder
    - Rename an existing folder there to something else, e.g. british_isles to british_isles1
    - Paste the Third_Age_3 folder into the location with all the other campaigns (Medieval II TW/ mods folder) and name it to the original name of the folder you just renamed, i.e british_isles
    - In Steam start the Britannia campaign and it should start TATW.

    Hi thermo, follow instructions on here - http://wineskin.urgesoftware.com/tik...es+from+Finder - while it looks like it isn't the recommended use of wrappers, it worked fine for me installing TATW 3.0 and patch 3.2. Hope that helps!

    Divide and Conquer (submod for TATW) works perfectly with method above, apart from the same issue with custom cities crashing if you try and play them on battle map. This wouldn't have changed issue massively as it works in the same way as a patch, but I was hoping something might have changed to let us play custom cities as well!

    How do you apply the patch? Where do you put the file? Also, I'm still having trouble with axe-throwing dwarves, when they engage, the game shuts down.

    Hmmm - we're all having the same problems and Feral has stopped helping me. Anyone else having any luck ?

    We need someone who knows stuff about mods to help us out

    @elvenkind - that makes sense with the city problems - especially if other mods are doing the same

    That has o be it bc the Dol Goldur map works and dosent crash the game but the gates are invisable.

    When launching keep the folder how it is no renaming and only change 1 launch code, the game launch option not in steam in the menu when you click start.
