Thread: Westeros: Total War Beta v0.51 FULL REPACK(Assassin Bug Fix / Patch 0.51)

  1. #1

    Default Westeros: Total War Beta v0.51 FULL REPACK(Assassin Bug Fix / Patch 0.51)





    Update:
    A temporary fix for an assassin bug.
    Download the attachment and put it into Medieval II Total War\Westeros\data\ , say yes to rewrite.

    The fix will only affect newly recruited assassins, so if you already got an assassin in your current game, you'll have to find a way to get rid of him first. If possible, going back to an earlier save would be best. Or, if you know how to use the console, you can select the assassin, bring up the console and type in "remove_trait this" without the brackets. You should be able to move him around freely the next turn.


    Introduction:

    Westeros: Total War is a modification for Medieval 2 Total War. It is based on the 'A Song of Ice and Fire' (ASoIaF) novels by George R.R. Martin.

    This is a beta release, which means unfortunately not everything is entirely polished. We recommend playing the factions that are fully skinned for the best experience: House Stark, Joffrey and Tully. The other houses are of course still playable, but keep in mind that they have not been polished yet.

    We have rooted out quite a few bugs during our testing, and the current build appear to be quite bug-free. However, if you followed all the installation steps and still encounter any bugs or CTDs, go to Medieval II Total War/logs and post the error log in the bug reporting thread, either by attaching the entire file or copying it in spoiler tags.

    Any gameplay and balance suggestions are of course welcome. We have much room for improvement

    Installation Steps
    :

    1. Make sure you haven't changed anything in your vanilla directory(any mods that aren't exclusive in mod folders for example), cause that might conflict with this mod. This mod only works with patch 1.2/1.3. Kingdoms is compatible but not necessary.

    2. Download the mod from:
    TWCenter
    Filefront
    Files.to
    Mod Realms (thank you Amroth)

    3. Extract it into your Medieval2 folder. There should now be a Westeros Total War 0.51 BETA folder in your game folder.

    4. If you unpacked M2TW, you need to backup some files in Medieval II Total War\data\, find and copy these folders to somewhere safe: banners, model_strat and ui. You'll need these when you want to play vanilla/other mods, or uninstall this mod.

    5. Move the contents inside folder Westeros Total War 0.5 BETA and paste them directly in the game folder. You should now have a Westeros folder, Westeros.bat and Westeros.cfg inside your main folder (= the folder containing the medieval2.exe).

    6. Play the mod by opening the Westeros.bat

    Patch 0.51 is also available as a seperate download. It is already part of the above downloads.

    The changes will only work when you start a new campaign.
    If you don't see anything new when starting a new campaign, delete the file map.rwm in C:\Program Files\SEGA\Medieval II Total War\Westeros\data\world\maps\base and restart a campaign.
    (If Jaime Lannister's Gilded Armour shows up in his ancillaries, the patch works)

    Gameplay Readme and Advice:
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 

    Managing your family:
    With the bloodline traits, you can keep track of your entire noble family with ease. However, it is easy for small families like Arryn or Stannis to dwindle and die off. The tip to keep your blood pure is obviously, never adopt. Also, some factions start off with no heir, so some generals are designated as heir. However, once you raised your own garden (as Lord Tywin puts it) you know what must be done to secure the throne for your own kin.


    Managing armies and battles:
    If you don't have experience with RealCombat, it's a unit balancing mod that emphasizes the importance of armored units. In vanilla, armor-clad knights die as easily as lowly peasants wearing boiled leather. In RC, a well-trained armored unit can stand up to peasants three times its number, and only be worn down by fatigue. Have no fear of imba however, for a well aimed cavalry can spell doom to the best armored knights on foot. But lowly spear-wielding peasants can slow down an armored charge long enough to bring your own forces to bear. In short, RC achived a much more tactical-inclined balance than vanilla. Combined-arms stacks are highly encouraged, and you could decide between expensive, hard to replenish elites vs commoner levies that are cheap and easy to mass.


    Heraldic Ancillaries:
    Most settlements have a heraldic anc which generals can acquire by staying in the town for one turn. For example, If you conquer Harrenhal and sit Ser Gregor inside, he'll be granted the title Lord of Harrenhal as an ancillary. The only exception are the capital settlements of each family, whose heraldry is automatically granted to the current faction leader. For example, if Tywin dies and Kevan becomes leader, he'll be automatically granted the Lord of Casterly Rock, without having to stay there one turn.


    Office Ancillaries:
    Each noble house has two basic offices to grant to generals or family members: Castellan and Master of Horse. Each King has the right to grant several additional offices to serve as his council: Hand of King, Master of Coin, Master of Ship, and Master of Law. Here's how you acquire these offices: (All of them require your general to stay inside a settlement)

    Castellan: Stay in Capital, have more than 4 loyalty
    Master of Horse: Train cavalry
    Hand: have more than 2 authority
    Law: Keep your townsfolks happy
    Coin: Tax your town
    Ship: Build a ship



    Crowns and Ancillaries in general:
    Watch out how many ancs your faction lead has when he claims king. The hardcoded max number of ancillaries per general is eight, so if he already has eight ancs, he won't get a crown. Some ancillaries are transferable, such as offices and heraldries, you could keep a few on your heirs and leaders to save spare ancillary space.


    Regarding the advisor optional events:
    Don't save in the middle of one, it won't pop up again when you reload.


    Regarding Assassins:
    Watch out where you're standing when you're spawning anything (assassins usually), keep the space around your capital's ports clear or you will be declined by the guilds.


    If you have any more questions regarding gameplay, I'll add stuff to this section later.

    Have fun, guys.

    "Five had been his brothers. Oswell Whent and Jon Darry. Lewyn Martell, a prince of Dorne. The White Bull, Gerold Hightower. Ser Arthur Dayne, Sword of the Morning. And beside them, crowned in mist and grief with his long hair streaming behind him, rode Rhaegar Targaryen, Prince of Dragonstone and rightful heir to the Iron Throne."

    It's still very beta. Raynn, LordSnow and Battledrumz have RL issues at the moment, and only aeoleron9 and myself are fully active...

    Default Re: Westeros: Total War Beta v0.5

    So the mod is great, I got it to work after re-installing everything (had everything unpacked before)

    A few questions......are the portraits not done for stark? All i get are the Scottish pics.

    And why do the Northern archers stats suck? no long range? sucky damage?

    Also Tully seems to get alot more units than any other faction. Many more armored seargents etc. than the others.

    I know this is just the beta, so how much will the unit balance be changed for the official release?

    Sorry to be a pest but......starting armies?????? Uh where are they?

  18. #18

    Default Re: Westeros: Total War Beta v0.5

    Dux:
    There are many unique Northern units. Northern archers, Men-at-Arms, Levy Northmen...just to name a few. You're probably trying to recruit them at the wrong places.

    Shadow:
    Most Northern generals have unique portraits. If you're not getting them then something's wrong with your installation. As for the other issues you raised, most of them are stuff the team didn't have time to finish in this release.

    Default Re: Westeros: Total War Beta v0.5

    So what do you place inside the Westeros Total War folder? Can you post some pics for us people that don't know about computer stuff aside from clicking "install this" etc? Cause I don't know if I should move everything in Medieval II folder into Westeros 0.5 Beta folder, yet that's what your instructions implied...
