    The Iazyges, Marcomanni and Quadi Mod - a mod for Rome: Total War Barbarian Invasion

    Hello, some of you may know that in Barbarian Invasion there are some "cut factions". Two of these are well known, The White Huns and Moors, but among the files I found references of another three: The Iazyges, The Marcomanni and The Quadi. Only a few files about these factions can be found in Barbarian Invasion, such as battle banners, captain banners and symbols in the interface. Unfortunately no unit skins or unit cards were left so I do not know what units they had and what was their role in the game; it is possible that they were cut during the early stages of development.

    So, in this mod I have replaced the Burgundii, Langobards and Roxolani with these factions, assigned them some units and placed them in the campaign map.

    Features:

    - The mod is mod-foldered. This means that the files of the original games are not modified as the mod has its own folder.
    - Replaced the Burgundii, Langobards and Roxolani with Iazyges, Marcommanni and Quadi. Fully playable in campaign and custom battles mode.
    - Alemanni, Celts and Saxons can become an horde.
    - Reworked some barbarian horde units.
    - Changed/fixed some unit icons.
    - New model for the Kerns. (actually an unused model found in the vanilla game)
    - Added an "all factions" provincial campaign where the player can also play as the Romano-British, Slavs and Ostrogoths.
    - Fixed various bugs thanks to player1 and Borsook BUG-FIXER.

    Can you please fix this mod and make a new one version? this version is buggy and unplayable. Its impossible here to fight with WRE because of CTDs during the loading. Its anytime saying that "Error of video memory textures sets" and this kind of things. Please make this mod playable. Its have a nice idea and plot. Please fix it, because i cant play it and hundred other people too. Fix the WRE. Only WRE have problems with textures

    Buongiorno! sorry for my rude comment above, i just was in depression, so maybe my comments sounds a bit angry.
    sorry again. If you need some help with mod, feel free to ask me, because BI is my favourite theme. Good luck!

    Thanks God! Now all is working best! Thanks Warcrafthero!
    I finished the Marcomanni Kingdom campaign and get a big glory for my knights! Long Live the King of Marcomanni!
    (hard difficulty of course, without hard, gameplay isn`t so interesting )
