    For you extra large, what is written right below the dl-link:

    -> Zipped file, nearly 460 MB: (unzipping needs winzip or winrar or 7zip or another zip/achiever installed, get it via google-search)

    Unzipped, you'll get a mod folder calling: chivalry
    Put this mod folder into your RTW directory. See the instructions and start requirements below (section official mod info).
    So yes, the Rome folder is the RTW directory (just in case this isn't known by you).

    Game-Start:

    In case of a provided default installation, the player has only to copy the ChivTW-Shortcut (contained in the installed chivalry folder) to his desktop, and start then with double-click on it from there. A former used Chiv-shortcut is still working if the path has not changed.

    For non-default path installations:
    Open the contained shortcut-folder for the help how to provide the Chivalry-Shortcut (there are the shortcuts contained plus an accurate description how to change the shortcut-path).

    Alternative, create your own desktop-shortcut from the RTW (or BI) exe, open properties, and insert the following behind the path of the first line:
    -show_err -nm -mod:chivalry -movie_cam
    And consider this, please: (especially the bold parts)
    Chivalry is in its own modfolder calling chivalry contained and changes not any RTW original data.

    Installation Requirements:

    - Rome Total War 1.5 or Barbarian Invasion 1.6 installed, unmodified.
    - Enough free hd space in this partition. Installed, Chivalry has about 900 MB within its modfolder.
    - Knowledge, where your RTW installation is located (directory, path).
    - Remove or rename an eventually former chivalry modfolder installation.

    i just installed rome and downloaded the latest chivalry but i dont find any setup.exe
    is it because i must download ver.00,1(or sumfin') first or is there simply none?

    Hi

    You have to copy an existing exe and change the properties(see first post in this thread)

    It`s either this

    The shortcut-path is here by default:
    "C:\Program Files\The Creative Assembly\Rome - Total War\RomeTW.exe" -show_err -nm -mod:chivalry
    (first line)
    and
    C:\Program Files\The Creative Assembly\Rome - Total War
    (second line)
    or this

    The shortcut-path by default:
    "C:\Program Files\Activision\Rome - Total War\RomeTW.exe" -show_err -nm -mod:chivalry
    and
    C:\Program Files\Activision\Rome - Total War
    Depending on which version of the game you have. These properties are for RTW. If you want for RTW-BI change the properties accordingly.

    Your neat little folder wants to rest here (the red letters)

    "C:\Program Files\The Creative Assembly\Rome - Total War\RomeTW.exe" -show_err -nm -mod:chivalry

    Drag and Drop the Chivalry-folder in this folder

    Sorry, couldnt resist. Having troubles installing a game have nothing to do with intelligence

    Here is the properties of my shortcut:

    "C:\Programme\The Creative Assembly\Rome - Total War\RomeTW-BI.exe" -mod:chivalry -nm -show_err

    I assume you have the gold version right. Then it is patched to 1.5/1.6 so that cant be the problem. And you are able to play vanilla(normal unmodded)?
