    Just, where you reruit them normally, also in banks.

    That's right. We had to find a way to represent the mercenaries during italian wars and this is the result of it. Glad you like it!

    A quite good choice for beginners in TIW

    Some hints:
    First of all follow the order to conquer Pisa, on your way conquer Volterra as well. Then built a port and secure/conquer the cities of Arezzo and Siena, but be careful with Siena. As you can read in the info event, some cities are harder to conquer than others. To secure the Tuscany, conquer Grosseto as well as Piombino. After that take controll of the Island of Elba and try to conquer Lucca and built a silk factory. In the meantime try to arrange some alliances with venice, pope and milan. So that you can focus on gaining control of the Tuscany. After that, you can invade Corsica for example
    One more advice, be sparingly and do not let your armies walk outside the cities if you don't need to, waste of money!

    Hope that will help you

    Cheers

    P.S. There is also a Battle Beta

    Thanks Neadal. Good info! Really a well done mod with many small features that you don't see in many other mods.

    Thank's for your praise, mate!

    For the upcoming version, we have more than doubled the amount of events.
    Because in the latest version, there is no flair nor the feeling to be or to take part in the Italian wars, with all its twists and turnarounds. For 4.0 we tried to capture all this and bunch it together in this mod.

    Wow! Took Sienna and boy was I in for a surprise. Great mechanic to make conquering rebel settlements a bit more of a challenge!

    One question, does a fleet count against your campaign upkeep if it's out of port the same as an army out of a settlement?

    Thanks!

    I just tried the battle beta. Very, very nice. I'd post some screen shots, but I'm now running Win 8.1 and I am so far unable to take screenshots in-game. I can't find the tgas folder in my MTW2 files.
    I used to use freefile viewer on my old rig, but it left too much bloatware so I'm not using it again. I can take shots of my desktop, but nothing in-game. Would anyone know how to do battle screenshots in Windows 8.1?

    hmm.. I had this problem once, too.
    I'm not sure, but I think you just need to create a new folder named "tga" in your medieval directory

    Thanks, Neadal. I tried it but no luck. Couldn't even make a folder. I click on NEW----->FOLDER but nothing appears in my directory. Probably a permission thing. I'll try another day when I'm not so tired.

    I think you are right, tick full access under properties for the whole medieval total war directory

    I was obviously not awake before.

    Created a folder on the desktop and named it tga, then dragged it into my directory. As soon as I did that, a tgas folder appeared, alongside my new tga folder. I dunno.

    Anyway, went into properties for the MTW2 folder and gave myself full access. I used FN+PRTSC to take a snap, then later opened the tga image in GIMP, where they can be converted to jpgs. Ta da! Screenshots! I'll load some before to long.

    Hi to everybody from Italy

    I'm new on this forum. Congratulations to Neadal for wondeful Italian wars Mod, I'm playing hours and hours the Beta custom battle version!

    The Reinassance warfare it's already good! Specially I love pikemen ( in the original game they're horrible, they use swords ).
    But I'm also a fan of history and i have some suggestion for France and others.
    In my opinion you need to add some units, not much work for a great modder like you:

    Add french musketeers ( late italian wars after Pavia's defeat lesson, I see only french arquebusiers now )

    Add french crossbowmen cavalry

    Add some light cavalry for France and others factions ( late italian wars also after Pavia's french heavy cavalry defeat )

    Add french scottish archers ( royal guards of Charles VIII in Fornovo Battle, early italian wars )

    Add Savoy pikemen-musketeers in Habsburg Imperial Army ( they are important too, Duke of Savoy was the leader in San Quentin battle )


    If you have time please add also England faction in custom battles.
    They are important to simulate Valois-Habsburg conflicts of XVI century ( more than Hungary or Turkey, lot of battles in France like Guinegatte, BOulogne ). Just in custom batlle ( because they are out of campaign map ) and maybe just some units ( pikemen, crossbowmen, musketeers, knights and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yeomen_Warders ).

    With Henry VIII army your mod will be perfect!
    This mod really complete Medieval Total war experience and timeframe. good work!

    Welcome to TWC

    Thank's for your suggestions
    But I'm afraid that we couldn't consider them right now, cos we are quite busy to get things done to the end of this month.
    So keep your ideas in mind and remember me, when version 4.0 is released, ok?

    I'm always glad to get praise, especially from Italy

    Cheers Neadal

    P.S. Make some Screenshots and take part in our small competition

    Thanks to you for this mod.
    Italian players like me are happy of this of course!

    I'm not able to make screenshots

    Yes of course, I'll remember to you this autumn for version 4.1
    If you need help then to find images or historical opinion about units, I can help you in researchs.

    Yesterday I maked a mistake, not Yeomen Warders ( they are only guards of the tower of London ) but Yeomen of the Guard http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yeomen_of_the_Guard

    Here the correct uniform for Henry VIII period :

    Good work for 4.0! We are waiting

    Because I don't know how to take screens during game I'm not so expert with computers.
    And since friday I'm in my summer holiday home without my pc ( just netbook and smartphone with me now ). I stay here for all this month

    Curiosly this summer home it's placed near the battlefiled of an important battle of Italian wars, the Battle of Garigliano river of 1503 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Garigliano_(1503). So italian wars places are always around me

    But when you want to start to complete France, or add Tudors England, ecc. I'm ready I have already found something material interesting for you.

    Just press the "print" key during a battle or game.
    The screen will be saved under C:\Program Files (x86)\SEGA\Medieval II Total War\tgas.

    You will need a 2D Art program something like gimp
    Then you can open up the tga files and save them as jpg and this files can be uploaded on this side for example

    Very well, keep your ideas in mind

    I can't remember how to set the preference.cfg file to get the full screen animation for screen shots. Does anyone know of a tutorial for that?


    Edit: Please, no discussion or questions in the Battle Beta Thread, regards Neadal
