    Default NTW3 v8.8 campaign patch

    The NTW3 v8.8 campaign patch only updates the 1805 European & Ottoman campaigns
    (there are no changes to the Classic Battle or Hardcore mods at this time).
    You need to have the NTW3 v8.7 mod installed before applying this patch.




    You can download and install the NTW3 v8.7 mod from ModDB: https://www.moddb.com/mods/napoleonic-total-war-3
    Follow the install instructions in this video by TSJ: https://youtu.be/lG4cEboSBpc


    Download the NTW3 v8.8 campaign patch here and paste to the data_folder and use WIN RAR to "Extract Here"
    Select YES to overwrite the existing files to complete the update :




    Start the SP Campaign game from the NTW3 v8.7 desktop launcher and look for the NTW v8.8 SPC line at the top of the Denmark (default) faction.
    (The campaign patch does not change the desktop launcher for NTW3 v8.7)




    The v8.8 campaign patch change log lists the corrections & updates made to the files.



    Fixed the disappearing fort issue.

    Lord Davn, thank you so much for the work of all your team and you are a real trooper for all the queries you deal with on this forum. Just got back into N:TW after a hiatus and I'm enjoying it very much with your latest NTW3 mod.

    Got everything successfully installed with v8.7 and having fun with the endless scenarios. Just a minor tech point to raise - your download site seems to have retired the v8.8 WinRar file you explain to install and has replaced it with an .exe ? I think I worked out how to install it correctly but the Denmark faction of the "Campaigns of the Coalition" loading screen is showing "NTW3 8.2" rather than "NTW3 8.8" so not sure...

    I'm having the same problem as Durruti1936 with the wrong "Campaigns of Coalition" installed. Furthermore, since we are installing 8.7 to replace it with 8.8, do we need to install the launcher fix for 8.7?

    I also see that on Mod DB, there is a NTW3 v8.8 campaign patch and a v8.8 - but the version 8.8 says that it is a patch of 8.7, so in what order do we need to install them?

    The game still CTD when you attack the Swedish fleet with the now 80 gun SOL.

    If you have v8.7 install download the v8.8 campaign patch and then install the v8.8 Claasic Battle mod. This will bring everything up to date.

    Well I'm getting a bit "long-in-the-tooth" in my old age as we say over here and I struggle sometimes with all the patches and upgrades instructions and revisions. However even if still the "Denmark faction of the "Campaigns of the Coalition" loading screen is showing "NTW3 8.2" rather than "NTW3 8.8" the game mod still works fine for me anyway.

    I've been setting up some North America War of 1812 custom battles against the AI both historical and hypothetical. The CA game engine with a small number of units and open terrain is perfect for that. Some close victories and close defeats!

    Yes the constant updates can be a challenge, but we are trying to get the latest updates and fixes out to players asap

    Did you guys bring over any new units from the MP part of the mod?

    We did in the Peninsula Campaign which is based on NTW3 Classic Battle units, stats and uniforms. The 1805 European campaign still retains the older units and uniforms and will eventually be replaced with the Italian & Egyptian campaigns (updated with the NTW3 CB mod).
