    Default Re: Install + Start Issues - Read First Post

    So..Yeah, I just got the game to start. No problems except my own incompetence.

    And, i go to start the game as the english, it's goin fine and everything, and then, all of a sudden, the game crashes just as the load screen ends. No error message, nothing. Just a CTD.

    Any ideas on how to fix this?

    Bare ERA's Rtw+Bi, btw.

    ... but that's not a start or install issue, as far as i understood your report above.

    Please check the bug-report thread (at best use the first post template). However, i think this kind of ctd is unknown with 0.96 ...

    Do other 0.96 players have the same problem? Then they shall as well make their bug-reports in the according thread.

    I considered it a start one since it was still the main menu.

    Nevermind. I did a re-copy of my base version and it worked. It might have been my old troy one. Sorry for wasting your time.

    I just downloaded this mod via the Filefront link. Yet after I install it and run it the game says I'm missing 4 engines.

    I can recall two of them off my head.

    METWII(my spelling sucks) Catapult, trebu(forget the rest of the spelling for the artillery), and two other things. It than says unable to locate and boot engines and closes the game.

    Please make sure your Chivalry/RTW directory is correct, and that you meet the install/start requirements (you can find all needed info's in our stickied threads and also in the chivalry folder).

    If all is correct, then such a error-message is impossible, and everything will work very smooth.

    I found the problem. The extractor I was useing was cutting files out. Changeing the extractor fixed everything.

    Read the 1st post, then you eventually know more.

    Btw., you have installed BI 1.6, if you can find the entry "1.6" (on the screen, right top corner) under the menu Options, no matter if in BI vanilla or with a mod installed!

    (And another option: maybe you try to start BI without the BI cd/dvd inserted?)

    Check out the first post of this thread together with you friend.

    - Install RTW/BI 1.6, check if it plays correctly.
    - Then install Chivalry.
    - Then provide the shortcut and play.

    Note: For the default path, the shortcut is included in the chivalry folder, so you would have to copy it only to your desktop, and start. Everything is described clearly in the respective threads (DL thread, Install thread and also in the dl file itself).

    K read the first post on this thread and followed it. So i have the mods folder in Activision Rtw rather than creative assembly like the post said. so now my paths are default as follows : "C:\Program Files\Activision\Rome - Total War\RomeTW.exe" -show_err -nm -mod:chivalry and "C:\Program Files\Activision\Rome - Total War" . Now when i add the required -BI to the top line so it looks like this : "C:\Program Files\Activision\Rome - Total War\RomeTW-BI.exe" -show_err -nm -mod:chivalry. When i enter this and hit OK on the properties tab it tells me what i have entered is not valid. Im probably doing something stupid and is easily correctable but thanks in advanced.

    Obviously you don't read the first post entirely.

    There are two main paths: one under Activision (the old original CD installation), and second one under The Creative Assembly (since their Gold and Era's Pack at least).

    You should know what your RTW(-BI) install path is, and where the location is, ie. hd partition C or E or F, and if there is another folder ie. Games or something, where you install all your games. RTW usually installs as default into C under the described paths, if you let the default path of the RTW installer do what it wants!

    Shortcut:

    Of course the shortcut must be able to find the install-path! Without this it cannot function.

    So this, only as default example "C:\Program Files\Activision\Rome - Total War" (second line), must be your install path.
    The shortcut itself proceeds via the first line path, then in this case "C:\Program Files\Activision\Rome - Total War\RomeTW.exe" -show_err -nm -mod:chivalry
    ... now you can play Chiv with RTW 1.5 installed.
    To play it with BI 1.6 installed you must simply add the -BI:
    "C:\Program Files\Activision\Rome - Total War\RomeTW-BI.exe" -show_err -nm -mod:chivalry
    ... for the exe to function with BI. If you get now an "error message" while takeover, then your install-path of RTW(-BI) is another that you inserted into the shortcut paths, that's all.

    If you follow these simple instructions and your RTW 1.5 and/or BI 1.6 works, then there is no reason to not get Chivalry to work. Once more, you only need to know where your RTW-BI is located and then insert the correct paths into the shortcut ... of course if somebody has no idea where he installs his software, then it can be tricky
    (And you still haven't confirmed that your RTW and your BI works as it should ... this of course is the main requirement)

    I think I did everything right, installed it to use it with BI and I have patch 1.6. When I double-click the shortcut, the game launches, I can see the opening image of the shadow of a knight, but after a few seconds, the game crashes and I return to my windows screen.

    Any thoughts what I'm doing wrong?

    No clue along your description. There must be something wrong in the shortcut path or the basic installation isn't correct. Just check everything again (ie. RTW/BI 1.6 directory unmodified?).
    You could also copy/paste your shortcut path here (both lines), and your install path as well.

    I do have other mods in my R:TW folder, could that be it?

    "C:\Program Files\Activision\Rome - Total War\RomeTW-BI.exe" -show_err -nm -mod:chivalry
    "C:\Program Files\Activision\Rome - Total War"

    I re-installed BI, patched it up and still nothing. The path is correct. C:\Program files\Activition\Rome - Total War

    Yes, if they aren't modfoldered, and if they change the original RTW/BI data.
