    no right: looks like the file is write protected. right click the file, choose properties, unmark the 'Read-only' field at the bottom, click 'apply' and then click 'ok'
    You should now be able to work with that file.

    string_bin_converter.py is a small file that converts string.bi files into txt files. It requires to have python installed and the PY file associated with it.

    Please use the notepad program that comes with Windows to work with these txt files. Other editor programs (office word, wordpad etc) leave formatting that will corrupt the string.bin file when converted.

    Have you tried to use the updated files I linked you to?

    Once you have installed it all that is true. First install install the main game (mod) - after that the patch and quick fixes in the second post and that's all you need.

    You require a smith I believe - right click the building in your list, that should bring up recruitment possibilities and additional requirements.
    There is also a bug that doesn't let you recruit units from the first round that the building exists, the pool slowly builds up in the round after (transparent unit pictures)

    The elves require ports to recruit too. And I think they cant recruit on winter.

    I just released paradamed's new siege engine fix that might help with those crashes.
    And the message is the normal 'Medieval 2 has encountered an error..' it's my trademark change in the text file.

    Obviously, your installation has been infected with the vile taint of Chaos. The only solution is to purge the taint with the fix that Gigantus linked above. Fear not, for the great Gigantus has great experience in battling the wretched hordes of the Enemy, and his solutions are second to none.

    Hey, I had the mod installed on my old computer, and had some technical issues with it (probably because my PC was very old and overheating etc).
    I have a new PC now, windows 7 etc and installed the mod in exactly the same way as before;

    I installed MTW2 + Kingdoms (through steam), I downloaded the torrents and installed the parts and the patch, and did the hotfixes, installing the mod into the main directory of MTW2 as 'myproduct' showed in the path, as described in the steam kingdoms launcher app.

    The problem is my game crashes as it starts to load. Vanilla works fine. Logs are below and if you could help, it would be greatly appreciated.

    This post has all the patches and fixes that have been released so far for the RodG version. they have to be installed in sequence. I would suggest to first follow this tutorial from step 3 onward before re-installing.

    Faint memory tells me that the first or second part of the installment ends after the animation pack (the last file mentioned in the log). Could it be that you installed one of the three parts into a wrong folder?

    Another Sigmar preserve us, Chaos has taken over! It specifically seems to happen with reinforcements. The size does not matter, since the game has crashed both with large and small battles (with reinforcements). What remains to be seen, is whether one can wait this out for a patch, or is there an active fix? I tried updating with gigantus's patches, but no luck.
