    Installation Instructions

    I. Download the mod using either of the methods below


    via torrent

    Extract the attached .zip file and start the bc20.exe.torrent with your preferred client application.

    via megaupload

    II. Preparation for installment

    BC 2.0 will install in a separate mod folder, and it will not interfere with your other mods or the original game. Follow the instructions below to ensure most optimum installation and bug free play.

    • Start with uninstalling previous version of BC (1.0 or 1.05), and MTW2.
    • Install Medieval Total War 2 (vanilla game)
    • Patch to version 1.3
    • Defragment your drive
    • For people who extract their MTW2 files, you cannot have the BC 2.0 and extracted files in the same root folder (SEGA/MTW2) Instead extract your files in separate domain. Failure to do so may crash the BC in some cases.
    • Continue to installation steps

    III. Installation

    • Start the installer by running bc20.exe
    • The installer will automatically detect your M2TW installation folder, if this does not work manually select your main M2TW directory, (e.g. C:\Program Files\SEGA\Medieval II Total War)
    • Select your original game version (ENGLISH vs. NON-ENGLISH) and start the installation process (NOTE: wrong selection here will cause CTD issues!)
    • Start the game with the Broken Crescent shortcut on your desktop

    IV. Installation with the M2TW Gold Edition

    Users of the M2TW Gold Edition please follow these steps to install BC correctly.
    • Install the M2TW Gold Edition with at least one Kindoms expansion and update Kingdoms to version 1.5
    • Install BC 2.0
    • Install the bc.cfg file from here (
    • Apply BC patch 2.01
    • Locate the map.rwm file in Medieval II Total War/broken_crescent/data/world/maps/base and click "compatibility files", then delete the map.rwm
    • Note: map.rwm is not locatable using any search features, you may have to do it manually.

    V. Known issues

    • The installer does not work correctly with M2TW used via Steam.
    • The AOR recruitment scripts seem not to work correctly with the US Gold Edition, which should have patch v1.03 but displays v1.02 under options.
    • The option Quick Battle will lead to CTD. Choose Custom Battle instead.


    What other BC versions do I need?
    BC 2.0 is full standalone MOD for MTW2 (non Kingdoms version of the game). NO previous version of the BC is needed. All previously released patches and fixes are obsolete.

    Does BC work with Kingdoms?
    BC 2.0 works if you have Kingdom installed, however you must use the MTW2 disc and MTW2 executable to launch the game.

    Is BC 2.0 safe-game compatible with previous version?
    BC 2.0 is not save game compatible and it will require starting of the new campaign.

    Does BC 2.0 work with other mods?
    BC 2.0 will not interfere with other mods if installed properly.

    Congratulations on release !
    Ring Poem in Italian:
    Tre Anelli ai Re degli Elfi sotto il cielo che risplende,
    Sette ai Principi dei Nani nelle lor rocche di pietra,
    Nove agli Uomini Mortali che la triste morte attende,
    Uno per l'Oscuro Sire chiuso nella reggia tetra,
    Nella Terra di Mordor, dove l'Ombra nera scende.
    Un Anello per domarli, un Anello per trovarli,
    Un Anello per ghermirli e nel buio incatenarli.
    Nella Terra di Mordor, dove l'Ombra cupa scende.

    I have to wait for new links (((((((
    "At first we were confused. The East thought that we were West, while the West considered us to be East. Some of us misunderstood our place in the clash of currents, so they cried that we belong to neither side- and others that we belong exclusively to one side or the other. But I tell you, Irenaeus, we are doomed by fate to be the East in the West and the West in the East, to acknowledge only heavenly Jerusalem beyond us, and here on earth--no one." - St. Sava (of Serbia) to Irenaeus, 13th century

    There are moments (in history), in which a nation owes,
    if it wants to be considered as a great one, to be able to fight.
    Even without hope of winning. Just because it has to.
