    Default BoTET Technical Assistance

    This is the place to report bugs and request help.

    Firstly, ensure you have followed the latest install instructions from the moddb page here: http://www.moddb.com/mods/call-of-wa...-the-end-times

    If you have any questions about installation, patching, extracting, or how to run the game, do not ask here, ask on moddb.

    For any bugs where the instructions given are to reinstall, make sure to go back to the moddb page to follow the instructions given there carefully, and if they're confusing, do not ask here, ask on moddb.

    For everything else, feel free to ask here, but realize that we're always working on the next version, so there's a very good chance we're aware of your bug and may have already fixed it for the next release.

    The causes of your problem could be multiple, as a bad installation or low RAM memory avaiable. Do you start the game using its own bat.file? Because start the game without using that file can cause many issues, especially in battles. It is in the following directory Steam\steamapps\common\Medieval II Total War\mods\COW_Beginning_Of_The_End_Times here there should be a file called "warhammer", try run with it if you haven't done before.
    If instead the crash occurred also when you have run the game in this way then you should post your log.file here, so we can give an eye to it and find the source of the problem.

    I assume this applies to the High Elf campaign where you cannot recuit basic high elf archers or if by change I did something wrong that made the recruitment impossible please do tell me cause I really want those basic archers Dx
    Ps: High Elf chariots and dragon lords.... Also not available in campaign?

    Absolutely, it's being fixed in the next patch. Everything related to that is being entirely overhauled, anyway.

    I think the cause of this bug is the fact that have both versions installed could cause issues with the .exe file since they have the same name; maybe is ended that both version start use the same exe file to start, but since retail version required the disk probably also steam version finished to be affected by this "change" and so don't run because of this problem. My suggestion is to try to reinstall each version on separated hard disks, if you have them, so you install on "first" hard disk the retail version and on "second" hard disk the steam version; in this way they should't "collide" between themselfs. If instead the issue persists then I suggest to keep only steam version and to make backup each time you do edits to the files.

    Are you positive you're clicking the .bat in the Steam version's folder? That sounds like a potential registry issue, which is a Windows thing I'm not very qualified to help you with. One suggestion would be to use Steam to do this: https://support.steampowered.com/kb_...2037-QEUH-3335

    If your objective is to simply run two versions of the same mod, I wouldn't bother with 2 separate installations of Medieval 2.
    Just have two copies of the mod folder, and rename them as you wish to play that version.

    Unless I've misunderstood, and you're actually making modifications directly to the base Medieval 2 files?

    This is true, it just needs to be the one with the correct folder name. Add an X to the end of the folder name of the one you're not using and that'll stop it from being loaded. I do that a lot with my work on the mod.

    Oh hey, I've noticed a bit of a recurring theme in my M2TW.system.log after some campaign crashes, I'm wondering if it is indeed something that can cause a crash and If It's something I could fix for my game before the patch comes out if it does cause some crashes,
    It's a lot of '03:12:21.458 [data.invalid] [error] REGIONS_DB::Colour(x,y,z) does not exist in this map_regions.tga' errors.

    The mod is torrent dload version 1.0 and moddb 1.01 patch applied onto it, I didn't edit the .tga file, it looks like this when opened (just in case it got curropted and this is not how it should look like):

    I would recommend going to moddb and reading the updated install instructions. If you are not already, launch the mod from the warhammer.bat in the mods folder and make sure you have a kingdoms.exe in your medieval 2 folder. if not copy/paste/rename your medieval2.exe and rename to kingdoms(and have kingdoms installed obviously). You should not be getting those errors.

    PS
    I reinstalled MTW, the mod, and am always running it through .bat file. Also used 4gb patch
    I think some empire cannons cause crash in your case. Did u check it?

    Try playing on a lower unit scale if you're crashing from having too many men on the field at once.

    Hey guys,
    I have a small question:
    everytime i enter a battle with cirka 2000+ men the game loads and loads and then crashes...
    Is it my Ram (i doubt it because i have a decent laptop for that old game (6GB Ram)) or could it be something else?
    its hard to enjoy this gem. Even on small scale unit mode you get some battles with over 2000 men and those are mostly the most epic ones :/
    Cheers
