Released Mod Spotlight:

Europa Barbarorum II


Seven years of patience and hard work have paid off, because Europa Barbarorum II has been released. Compared to its critically acclaimed Rome: Total War counterpart, Europa Barbarorum II has eight new factions, completely redone graphics in almost all areas, units that have the graphics variety Europa Barbarorum lacked, and more to blend Medieval II: Total War: Kingdoms’ engine to Rome: Total War and Europa Barbarorum. Find more and download at the E.B. II forum here.

Medieval 2 - Modding Information

After some initial hold-ups unpacking and working on certain new file types M2TW proved to be one of the most easily modded Total War titles

Modding News:

A New Frontier in M2TW modding now seems possible.
CA have given permission for mods which change values in memory as the game loads. This potentially allows values and behaviours previously hard-coded in the .exe to be changed. Zarathos is leading a team of programmers investigating the possibilities.

Getting into those troublesome files:

allows battle map unit models to be edited in MilkShape 3D
converts the .texture files used for unit skins etc. to .dds files - also converts .dds back to .texture format.
allows the files in .strings.bin format to be converted to normal text files for editing
