    Introduction
    Welcome to the download and installation thread! Here you will find all relevant material to getting the game working for you. If you have any questions, just ask!

    Part 1:
    Mediafire - Mod DB

    Part 2:
    Mediafire - Mod DB

    Part 3:
    Mediafire - Mod DB

    Patch 1.2
    Mediafire - Mod DB

    Installation Guidelines:
    - You need a fresh (no mods present) Third Age Total War 3.2 installation (3.0 plus 3.2).
    - No other DaC files are required. Only Version 1 Parts 1, 2 and 3 and Patch 1.2.

    1) Please disable Windows UAC (User account control) - ElvenKind's Guide : AG's Guide
    2) Download each file - Do not do anything else on your computer whilst you download
    3) Run them as an administrator in numerical order. - Right click and then select 'run as administrator'
    4) You shouldn't have to change the destination folder unless you have MOVED YOUR STEAM or you have the disc version, the installer defaults to the default Med 2 steam location.
    5) When asked about overwriting files, always click 'yes'.
    6) PART 2 ONLY - When asked about 'read-only' files, click retry for all and it will work fine (about 15 times you have to click the button)
    7) Please read the final page of the installation process and act accordingly if you have the disc version. Or watch the videos below for full details.

    this is going to sound really stupid but is there a really good way to know if you have everything installed correctly? hahaha, cause somehow i just realize my previous installation was wrong. I was still on 1.0 even though i had installed the patch but i was totally able to play the campaign far into 100+ turns without any issues except crashing on Carn Dum defense as Grey Havens.....

    I have since reinstalled it and now the game shows as 1.2 but now i am totally worried.

    steam or disk? do you have the kingdoms expansion. There is a chance that you have it at the wrong place installed as the reference to kingdoms.exe in the bash file depends on the current directory of it. If you open medieval2/mods do you see a folder third age and the third age.bat inside of that one?

    I had the same problem and I realized it occurred because I ran the shortcut as administrator. All I did was double-click the shortcut instead and it worked.

    No. It will be a long time. Think in terms of next year.

    Hey, I followed every instruction exactly with the 1.2 patch downloaded from both ModDB and Mediafire and it's just not installing. Straight 1.0 has installed fine, but it's just not updating, and despite it appearing to go through the install process fine, nothing has changed after and it's still 1.0.

    Sorry, but realised I'd made a mistake, it's now working absolutely fine. Tried installing in a different location and copying over, which didn't work, but then thought that installing properly again might afterwards... At which point I noticed that the 1.2 default path is the overall mod folder, whereas the one for the three parts of 1.0 was the data folder, and I'd been copy pasting the location as I don't have it in C:.

    But other than my cock-up, all good so far. Nice work!

    Hey i tried to download dac today and ran into a problem in the instillation, installing part 1 floods my ram usage and crashes the operating system randomly when its installing. the other parts i then tried to install, they went fine, and I returned to part 1 a few times to retry, and it for whatever reason eats up all my memory and fails to install.

    Any advice? Fixes?
