    There is a minor error in the descr_strat file which makes the wool resource in the Edinburgh region inaccessible to a merchant. It's not important, but anyone playing England or Scotland might want to fix it. Here's how:

    Find the descr_strat file. BACK IT UP in case you mess up! Copy the file and then rename one to descr_strat - copy, for example. Open the descr_strat file using any text editor, even vanilla notepad, and find the following line:

    resource wool 99 309 ;Edinburgh

    Change it to:

    resource wool 99 310 ;Edinburgh

    This moves the resource up one space on the map, allowing the merchant to be placed on it properly. You can move it elsewhere, but one space is all that is needed and keeps it in easy view (i.e. not hidden in trees).

    If you wish, you can also correct the duplicate descr_strat files located in

    I forgot to point out the location of the first descr_strat file above. It will be in the TLR custom folder here:

    Hi,
    thanks for putting this mod up here.I'm playing as Poland and it seems pretty stable but I've noticed some silver surfer rebel generals and I've had one crash going into a siege against Novgorod which i was able to auto resolve instead.Also the polish generals shield texture is in a black square. Any ideas on this?

    Missing texture entries for the slave faction and a wrongly formatted texture respectively.
    Not sure about the siege crash - that could be a faulty Novgorod unit.

    So I just reinstalled MTW2 through steam and then installed this mod with the patch. Getting a ctd after 2 minutes in the menus. Am I doing something wrong?

    I am getting a CTD when starting a fight with Smolensk rebels as well. Idk what the faulty unit could be, just looks like 1 general with partial plate armor, 2 peasant archers, 1 unit of mounted bow Khazaks, and 4 spear militia to me.
    Happens when allowing the defenders to sally or launching an assault, auto resolve seems to be the only way to go in the Russian regions

    Happens when fighting anyone anywhere it seems. Attacked a small army with some random militia units around Scandinavia = crash. Attacking any rebels or armies in that area? crash.

    These sound like old problems reoccurring. It may be worth extracting both the old patch a and the battle ctd fix (link below) to the medieval 2/mods/the long road folder and overwriting all. Ie find the data folder inside the .rar and overwrite the mods/the long road/data folder. I'm not in a position to check this will resolve the issues yet, but these issues, ctd Smolensk and silver surfer generals are the same as reported before those patches.

    I have finally pulled out my old rig and evicted the spider today. I had a solid kingdoms build that I regret not releasing so I will clean that up and upload, if I can get everything powered up. If not, i will at least look into a patch to resolve problems.

    Edit
    Here is the old Path A
    https://docs.google.com/uc?id=0B1AcU...xport=download

    And the old battle ctd patch

    The above will not work. Patch a was already added but the battle ctd fix will fix the silver surfers issue. I fixed the ctd. it was a texture! So, now I'm going to work on a patch and test some more, but will release something soon

    "Was it intentional to make all faction names into another langauge?"

    Many years ago, I was one of the (Second) team that helped continue modifying this mod, though was there for research and and information, I didn't do much of the coding. The answer to your question is yes.

    Some other issues that were taken into account.
    The Mod is not "Balanced" in that it tries to show actual, historical positions and problems. This was intentional. We tried to get more realism into the factions. There are factions that are simply in awful positions at the start.

    Another thing I remember, beside the time scale and economics, that changed was movement. In the vanilla game (each turn equals 2 years) it can take 8 to 16 years for a ship to sail from London to Antioch for a crusade. That was simply silly and your army could have swam there faster. Unless they changed it back, the ships move much farther. This has rather profound ramifications when invading by sea and means you need to defend coastal areas.

    I do not know if I still have any of the notes from those conversations tucked away or not. We are talking 15 years ago.

    Hi all, this is about a text missing issue after install of TLR 243a

    I have also a text missing issue, and it is a lot of text.
    For example, when click Esc to leave the game or to save the game, a window open with another 8 or 9 small windows in it, and they are all empty of text. It should be "save game" or "exit game" but they are all empty.
    Other places where there is no text is the game platform itself like in this link https://ibb.co/CvwM3fy you can see in the bottom "army" "castle" "agents", well I do not have any of this text.

    I would be grateful for any help thx.
