    Default Creating a World Steam Install for TATW 3.0 and 3.2

    This tutorial is available as PDF download here.

    IntroductionThere have been a number of guides and instructions that have been based on old versions of the Steam client and the game itself and out of necessity have been complicated, if not to say convoluted. The goal of this tutorial is to simplify the procedure as much as possible.
    The procedure described underneath has been performed on 13th February 2017 with an up to date version of Steam and Medieval II Total War.
    DownloadingUse the links provided on this TWC page, for the sake of convenience they are listed below:


    Installing
    The pathThe 3 parts listed above have to be installed in the sequence they are listed. Start by running\double clicking the TATW_3.0_Part1of2 application file to start the installation.
    When presented with the installation path you will need to alter it to match your Steam installation. Simply click on the marked button and browse to Steam directory (default is C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam) and then down to the Medieval II Total War directory as shown in the picture below, then click 'OK'



    Now finish the installation and repeat the same path setting for the remaining two installation parts (part 2of2 and Patch). Please note that there is a slight delay at 18% in the first installation: this is due to large files being processed - do not interfere!


    Steam specific StuffUnfortunately, the launcher (desktop shortcut to BAT file) does not use the universal batch file method, it will exit with this error message:



    This can easily be fixed by following my tutorial here.

    Once you have run that tutorial simply run\double click the Third Age - Total War desktop shortcut to start the mod.

    If I understand correctly, buying the game on steam, would give me more access to online battles etc. So, the procedure above, is what I should do after having bought the game on Steam? Cause I've never used steam and therefore I cannot follow this guide 100%.
