    Default 77 BC 2 - Download threads and instructions

    Mod_switch version of 77 BC 2 Full Install
    Date: 29/06/07
    Content: the whole mod, version 2.0., in mod_switch version. See Install details below.

    DOWNLOAD LINKS FOR THE 77BC 2.0 INSTALLER:





    download links (manual install version):

    http://www.megaupload.com/?d=EVDSPOJR

    http://files.filefront.com/77+BC+2ex.../fileinfo.html

    INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS FOR 77 BC 1.2. mod_switch version

    1. Download 77 BC

    2. To begin, you need a unmodded (vanilla) RTW game with BI patched to 1.6.

    3. When you have finished downloading, run the installer. It will ask you where to install 77 BC. Browse and lead the installer to your unmodded (vanilla) RTW folder. The most common paths are:

    C:\Program Files\The Creative Assembly\RTW

    or

    C:\Program Files\Activision\RTW

    You do not need to create any 77 BC folder. The installer will do it. It will not touch any of your RTW files either. All the mod will be located in a 77bc folder.

    You do not need RTR any longer. This mod is stand-alone.

    After the process is over, this is how my RTW folder looks like:



    As you can see, besides 77 BC I have other folders for other mods that also run with mod_switch, like TFT and RTR Platinum.

    4. Now create a shortcut to the RTW - BI.exe file that is in the RTW folder where you have installed 77 BC.

    5. Click on "properties" of the shortcut and add the following lines at the end of the target line:

    -mod:77bc -nm -show_err

    Again, this is how the shortcut looks in my install:



    Enjoy the mod!

    Salvor, does 2.0 go over 1.2, or straight over vanilla RTW?

    Cherryfunk, you do not need the previous version. Just RTW and BI vanilla, patched to 1.5. and 1.6. respectively. You can delete the previous 77bc folder.

    CelphTitled, you would be amazed at how much time I spent with my computer with the stupid "select an item from the list" message. Somehow, I thought that my RTW Gold pack was patched by default to 1.6.

    Sarkiss, my friend, it is great to have you back around.

    Black Francis, as a long admirer of your posts both here and at RTR Forums, I can only say that you honor this thread.

    Thanks to all of you for downloading the mod. Awaiting your feedback

    Holy crap what? Thanks for the complement, though I surely do not deserve it.

    I am thoroughly impressed with the high level of quality in... everything so far!

    I have found a bug I guess.

    When I select an army/diplomat etc on the world map the blue "movement remaining" bar on the far left hand side extends all the way up to the top of my screen.

    Also, though it is of little importance and easy to ignore, some of the units make no response upon selection on the battlemap.

    Where should I really be posting bugs btw?

    Running smoothly... I'm impressed. Couple of minor quirks but nothing serious so far.

    Greetings Sarkiss!

    It is nice too see you around again. Your contributions to the debate about the Armenian faction were a pleasure to read.

    Hmmmmm....... for some reason it won't allow me to add -mod:77bc -nm -show_err at the end of the target line. Any help/explanation?

    A very stupid question: have you created a shortcut to the RTW - BI.exe file and are you adding the text to the shortcut target?

    A not so stupid suggestion: give a look, in the properties of the shortcut, to the "general" folder and check that the "read-only" atribute is not selected. I will try to illustrate it with my shortcut, as translating windows options is really difficult:

    mackios,
    maybe you have installed RTW to a different path rather than the usual C:\Program Files\Activision\Rome Total War

    please tell us the path to your rome total war folder and we will write down the line that should be in your shortcut to rometw-bi.exe file.

    regards

    Yup I had the same problem when I first installed the Mod following the path F:\77 V 2. I simply renamed the folder RTW and added the string to the new path F:\RTW\RomeTW-BI.exe -mod:77bc -nm -show_err and it worked

    well.. then in your "Target" attribute in the shortcut should read:

    "C:\Program Files\Activision\Rome - Total War\RomeTW-BI.exe" -mod:77bc -nm -show_err

    just like that, with the two " .

    try this and please report back.

    cheers.

    ps: you are sure you installed RTW and patched it to 1.6, right?
