    Icon3 {DIK} >>> Download - TIW - Ultimate | Pre-Release <<<


    After almost three years I am very proud to present to you a 'nearly' finished version of my final work: The Italian Wars | Ultimate.
    This version was intended as a proper ending to the Italian Wars scenario. Sadly though, that will not happen in the future, due recent development in my reallife.
    Nevertheless, you will find a more than playable version below. Of course, it has not been tested as I did intent, but I'll stick around to lend you guys a hand if any major issue occur.

    I kept silent but after installation I will say that this is the masterpiece. I adore this period and even had bought books about it and it is a treat to have renaissance battles. So much opportunities for implementation of combined arms where firearms and artillery complement halberds, swords and pikes. I adore mercenary captains and doppelsoldners, now they make the difference. I hope you will be able to fix potential bugs because we need you to polish even more this diamond. Greetings from Europe and thank you.

    Sadly I have no other way of playing MTW2 other than steam - Windows 10 seemingly won't support the disks

    I can often manage to use appropriate mods with Steam but I would love to use this mod - can I do so with Steam ?

    If there are any ways around W10 Id love to hear them.

    You may have it along on your drive. these are mod-foldered.
    For those who want to play a historical mod in a medieval setting:
    try either the Stainless Steel Historical Improvement Project + minimods,
    or the Broken Crescent + Buff and Shine submod.

    ok, so this is what i've done.

    I use Steam so i installed it in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Medieval II Total War\mods
    Then created a folder named italian wars inside the the mod folder so its now in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Medieval II Total War\mods\italian wars
    Extracted the sounds.rar into the Data folder just as the instructions say
    However everytime i run the desktop shortcut "Die Italienischen Kriege - Ultimate" or the "Executable" file it runs the vanilla game instead.

    Sorry to be such a pain, i'm sure i'm making this harder than it is. Always been terrible at installing mods.

    afaik, you should not put the (perhaps older) Steam games in the "program files" folder. Set up a new folder (c:\games or even better on another drive) and install all older games there. I think it's possible to make a transfer to another folder - an option in the Steam.

    However, if you manage to run Mediveal, it means you still can do it... I think there's a wrong path in the shortcut. I'd go to the mods/italian_wars folder and run a program from there. Or check the paths.

    Yeah, my other mods such as Third age total war and Stainless Steel are in the "program files" folder and work.
    Where did you download yours to? Can you show me what your pathway looks like when you run yours?
