    As people here have obviously missed this stuff, I'll point it out yet again - Redux, RXB1003 is compatible
    with W7
    (64bit). It functions very well on that OS, and this includes much modern hardware as well....

    For info and downloads, see stickied Redux-thread in this very section....

    I run it with compatibility 98/ME and that's all. Also to mention that Im running the patched version BUT not MI expansion.

    STW usually runs ok, it doesn't have the campaign map crashes or the slow loading problem of MTW - and if you have problems in battle (i.e. invisible units, etc) you can always resort to the, albeit ugly, software rasteriser.

    For MTW/VI, the "button fix" resolve the campaign map crashes: http://forums.totalwar.org/vb/showth...h-End-Cards%29

    Indeed it does! It eliminates all the slow loading problems on older operating systems. Almost instant loading times... absolutely ridiculous, something I only dreamed of years ago playing the game. Well done.

    Well, some may think I'm a deviant, but I totally enjoy the original MTW [and VI too]. Never mind the somewhat outdated graphics of MTW--it's the gameplay that made me like it a lot, plus the large parts played by the princesses, assassins, and emissaries. When Rome TW first went out, I didn't like the strategic map [so different from that of MTW] but later learned to love it too, when I got used to it. And I enjoy even more the mods of RomeTW. Then there's M2TW, and I didn't like it much at the start. Later I learned to detest it. M2TW's great graphics, for me, is but nice eye candy; but the gameplay is substandard and, historically [maybe I'm just a purist], starting the campaign too late in the world's history, the use of gunpowder weapons too early in the campaign, and the hectic race for one to reach gunpowder-level of technology in order to be on par with one's rivals is, for me a sour note. The only thing I like about M2TW is, you can train more than one unit at a time, but heck these units are very expensive! So, in summary, I love the classic TotalWars (STW, RTW, and MTW) but don't care much about M2TW and beyond. After all, I play to enjoy myself with games that have great gameplays, not to chase after what's new even if it sucks. Hawooh.

    Hi to all,

    normally hanging around at the ORG and only occasionally looking in here I saw this thread. Thought "why not?" and registered.

    Played S:TW from the moment it was released, same with S:TW/MI, M:TW, M:TW/VI. Tried Rome - and hated the changes of the engine. Never tried anything newer and, reading comments of old-style players, that was well done. No eyecandy for me, please.

    After more than 10 years of playing vanilla M:TW and VI started to play mods (for M:TW/VI). First one was XL, but disliked the restrictions of (in vanilla) all-faction-available units. Then came to REDUX - and stayed with it. Great gameplay, completely new (and newly balanced) unit rooster, and for my beloved Danes, Norse in REDUX, an infantry that would chase those JHI around the globus ;-))

    So Im a happy player who will stick to this game, due to several mods I havent tried yet, for sure another 10-12 years.

    greetings daigaku

    Hi, mr_president,

    which version did you get? Is it raw MTW, or MTW/VI? Which is your first faction to be played?

    curious greetings daigaku

    MTW/VI. Its takes ages to load though and frequently crashes but other then that great game.
    The game.

    Hi mr_president,

    not being too familiar with the community here, I only can recommend a visit to the ORG for remedy - loads of in-depth tips and info about all sorts of difficulties (had my share of that as well...)

    if you tend to play MODs as well, try REDUX - it seems to solve a lot of problems with newer OS and hardware, especially on win7/64bit ;-))

    happily playing along greetings daigaku

    Currently playing England via Viking expansion,yeah get crashes though,but better than MTW alone. The pain is the stupid vices and virtues,how many 'unhinged loons' do you have to get per faction? The merchent vice can't gain,even with 20 traders built-using cheat codes. Enjoy it as a chess game. Music quite good also!

    Still play it often. The Campaign map is sluggish but apart from that everything works quite well.

    Amazing game (MTW1), the voices and music complete it perfectly. After playing it again for a few days I thought I'd try RTW again, I managed half an hour of Rome, poor in comparison. Thinking about this game, its a contender for my favorite pc game of all time...

    Same here, MTW is probably my favourite PC game of all time.

    Same here. My MTW playtime eclipses all the time I spent playing the other TW's combined. Hours upon hours upon hours. Sadly, I no longer have the time to play much, but I do try to sneak in the odd hour here and there.

    I too can recommend MTW Redux. Runs like a charm and quite a challenge! And if you want a more 'traditional' MTW playthough, have a look at MTW XL. Both are awesome.

    I still play it but invariably I spend my time dreaming about "what ifs" for the viking campaign, if it was actually made decently with a proper amount of kingdoms/viking ai etc.

    I loved the detail of fortified villages in Viking Invasion, it made it much more "medieval", and more connected to the rural aspect.
