    Default Do you choose either 1.0 or 1.2? Or install 1.2 over 1.0?

    Choose which ever you like. They both are their own mod version. 1.0 is simply vanilla on a new map, 1.2 has a lot of new features.

    I apologize for the delay, but now I'm proud to announce that the saga continues. At this very moment I am uploading the new release of our epic mod Rome Total History version 1.2.

    Here is the download link to RTH_1.2:

    To install the game you need a vanilla version of Rome Total War upgraded to versions 1.3 and 1.5. Unzip the file with Win RAR and move the folder RTH into your Rome Total War folder besides the original Data folder. Do the same with the “Rome Total History mod” launcher and eventually open properties to correct the destination path. Use the launcher to start the game. It's easy.

    I'll test it out when I have time.

    You need clearer instructions mate, like step by step, I managed to struggle through but I cant imagine anyone unfamiliar with computers doing it.

    Scratch that, giving me an error, "problem checking steam application".

    Ok to get this to work on steam you need to copy the launch options from the Rome Total History shortcut into the steam launch options. Aaand theres no indication it worked except for the factions being different, just a warning.

    Very impressive so far though! Highly recommended!

    First of all, hi! Im' kinda new here, and I don't plan on being very active on the site, but I just thought I'd report some bugs I've found along the way while playing your mod.

    First of all, I agree with the user above me when he says that the installation procedure is not ver specific: for someone who had never installed a RTW mod/doesn't have much experience fiddling around with computers, it can be a bit troublesome to get it going at first.

    Now, onto the bug list! These are minor bugs, and nothing major, but I thought I should point them out for you to fix in further releases.

    Well, this is annoying... I was trying to post the bugs, but I keep getting this message: "Post denied. New posts are limited by number of URLs it may contain and checked if it doesn't contain forbidden words."

    .. which is strange, because I checked for swear words... -_-''' Anyways, I'd like to expand further, so here's the short list:

    1) Characters sometimes disappear of the map - their 3d model disappears and only appears the next turn.

    2) Pontus' faction destroyed warning appears as the one of Parthia.

    First at all thank you for the new version.
    I tried to begin to start new game for Rome faction and... UPS! When I press this buttons I always catch CTDs.

    Hope you will fix this bugs.

    Here are better instructions:
    For NON Steam users:
    1.Download RTH v1.2
    2. Extract the files using winrar to your Rome-Total War directory
    3. Create a shortcut of your RTW.exe and move it to your desktop
    4. Rename the shortcut to "Rome Total History"
    5. Right Click the shortcut and go to properties. In the target line after all quotations, put -show_err -mod:RTH

    For steam users:
    1. Download RTH v1.2
    2. Extract the files using winrar to "programfiles(x86)/steam/steamapps/common/RomeTotalWarGold
    3. Go into your steam library and right click Rome Total War, then go to properties and click on "Set Launch Options"
    4. Put -show_err -mod:RTH
    5. Optional: Create a desktop shortcut

    Since you are a new user and have less than 25 posts you are restricted on what you can do. Get to 25 and you'll have full access.
    For the bugs, not sure how to fix them, as I have never experienced those yet. Philadelphos would know but he is on vacation.

    This is a very common issue when removing the senate faction from the game. Do not click the Senate tab or Offices button as it will always result in a CTD. Hopefully in the future, we can find a way to remove those from the screen. There is a way to do it but he already removed the senate and I do not know if it is still possible.

    For future bugs and issues, please report in the Support thread.

    Default Re: Rome Total History RTH_1.2 released

    There probably is no senate, that's why. So don't click that tab. I believe it's going to get removed.

    I'll have to download the mod to check it out.

    Are the family trees smaller this time?

    Doesn't look like it. I think that will come out in the next version. Philadelphos recommends sending them on suicide missions etc to get rid of them.

    Default Re: Rome Total History RTH_1.2 released

    Too much too old generals in the beginning of Rome game. In couple of turns my suicide army of elders-kamikaze eliminated all Epirrus in Italy and landed in Greece for further blitzkrieg.

  15. #15

    Default Re: Rome Total History RTH_1.2 released

    Not good, this is something I believe we should fix. Generals are the most powerful unit in the game. Yes, having a large family tree has it's benefits but in regards to balance it can really make things easy for the player.

    Default Re: Rome Total History RTH_1.2 released

    One more suggestion. There are so much temples in your mod. For example for one town there are more than 15 of them available. I build all of them and game become too easy. I don't even destroy Greek and Barbarian temples, simple build a new 15 temples - and you'll never see revolts.
    What do you think about regional temples like in AOR-system? For Genua city - one temple, for Patavium - another one. Or something like this.

    Default Re: Rome Total History RTH_1.2 released

    @fty that is a good observation, I didn't know he added that many! That is also a good suggestion.
    What are you doing before the CTD?
