    Default Samurai Warlords beta 8



    Download here.

    Requirements for install:
    To install this mod you need a fresh unmodded version of Medieval:Total War + The Viking Invasion Add-On + The VI patch 2.01. (We've limited experience with the Eras and Gold versions of Medieval that also include Viking Invasion. They're supposed to be the same as the original MTW+VI Add-on. For Single Players these versions should work okay, but Multiplayers may have troubles with their CD-Keys not being recognised by Gamespy.)

    How to install:
    Download the installer and run it by double-clicking.
    (When asked for the install location (see image below), browse to your copy of Medieval:TW/VI that you intend to use.)
    (Attention: The installer may take a while to finish. Some people have reported that they thought it had frozen.
    This is not the case, it just has a lot of things to do, like deleting unnecessary files.)

    Just wait and follow the instructions until it says: "Medieval installation succesfully modified".


    After the install you'll have two additional eras: 1. "Samurai Warlords" and 2. "Samurai Wars MP".
    You need to scroll down to see them. You'll have Vikings, Early, High, Late, Samurai Warlords and Samurai Wars MP.

    ---------------------------
    Here's the link for the Samurai Warlords patch 8.1. (222k)
    Features:
    • includes the fix by Techno_Mage_of_Shadows.
    • deletes all vanilla eras for easier access
    • features a new Main Menu title, so that people can check if the patch is properly installed.
    • the unit prod is still called "MP_11_unit_prod", the old will be overwritten by the patch, the stats haven't changed




    R'as
    ---------------------------
    Non required add-ons:

    Get the Sound-Add-on in this thread: Sound Add-on
    TosaInu has made new large maps for the beta_8.
    They can be downloaded here
    Puzz3D has made new castles for the beta_8. They can be downloaded here

    - Geisha is included but based on Inquisitor - we don't know yet what to do with her

    How to install:

    Download the installer and run it by double-clicking.
    (Attention: The installer may take a while to finish. Some people have reported that they thought it had frozen.
    This is not the case, it just has a lot of things to do, like deleting unnecessary files.)

    Just follow the instructions and wait until it says: "Medieval installation successfully modified".

    Great R'as, downloading now

    Does the install process clean out the map folder (there was some talk about that I think)?

    Will it be like old betas, you know, with new Startpos and prod files etc?
    Or overwrite the old ones and make saved games obsolete? Ok, so I "tweaked" a few things in previous versions...

    I don't know about the prod file, but there is a new Startpos file. You could just take the maps and map textures from beta8, put them into beta7 and continue your beta7 campaign. To do that:

    1. Optionally, you can delete all the maps in \Savemaps and \Battle\Maps in the beta7
    2. Copy/overwrite the maps from those folders in beta8 to the same folders in beta7
    3. Copy/overwrite \Textures\Ground\Lush and its \Winter subfolder from beta8 to beta7
    4. Copy/overwrite the file \Models\MODELDAMAGE.TXT from beta8 to beta7

    beta_8 has a new startpos, but the prod files from beta_7 will be overwritten.
    beta_5 files remain unchanged.
    For you this means that your savegames may work. I cannot guarantee it.
    beta_8 is not intended to be installed over old versions.
    You can do it, but you'll only get limited support for that way from me.

    Excellent.

    I don't have (yet) STW unfortunately, so I'm assuming I will get MTW music/voices, right? Other than killing the atmosphere, are there any other problems with this?

    Yes, for the time being you keep the voices and music from MTW, apart from the one frontend file I inserted. There're no problems using those.

    I've written a PM to CA, asking for permission to use the sound and music files.
    A lot of what we need is already in the freely available Shogun demo.
    Alas, not the battle event voice files.

    im downloading this file cause my total war ERA's copy of Shogun total war is pissing me off. i delete whole bunch of stuff of my c drive to get it to 23 used giga bytes out of 67...

    and it still didn't fix my problem so im assuming its the era's instalation since the last time i had STW it came with 2 disk. so im assuming there is data missing since the total war:ERAs are all gold edditions

    i know for a faq my comp can handle STW cause i been playing medeval total war along with viking expansion no problems.

    so i see that 2.01 of MTW: viking expansion works with this mod thats fine i don't mind checking out this mod.

    hopfuly it will let me use work sundays so i cna get to use kenasi sooner.

    I performed a clean MTW/VI install, then the Samuari Warlords. Game opens fine, but when I go to campaign choices it still looks like MTW choices. I tried and early and its in the MTW map.

    But Warlord sounds and music.

    Did I miss a step somewhere?

    Well, some more Uesugi reports.

    I hired some mercs and retook Sado. But the Mercs cant leave the island, though I have a ship on the water and other units can come and go.

    The Shiba clan is refered to as Mugami several times.

    just a small request but you think you can add more Elite units like the kenasi is for the sword dojo but can you add an elite unit for each of the dojos ALL BUT THE ARCHERY OF COARSE.so liek the kenasi there are elite unit for spear dojo-horse-monk-ninja-nvm ninja ounce ( i have faith) you guys finish the editing of the Geisha.

    when you guys can think you can do some work on the ship yard's and give more opitons as for for ships. so there is an elite ship maybe a kamikaze ship otion with gunpower building like the trading post and shipyard enables the kamikaze ships (its how they faught of the golden horde) i mean i would love to get rid of the 20-30 diffrent faction ships that are out there need a better method then just one type of ship.

    The kensai is already out of control. I don't know if it can be brought into line with the other unit types.

    My thinking is that the player should not be able to overcome marked economic deficiency through battlefield tactics. Yes, you should be able to overcome a certan degree of economic deficiency, but not so much as to make the economic aspect irrelevent. There is a chance that elite units will produce lopsided victories. The ashigaru units should remain effective throughout the Sengoku Period. ShingenMitch is well studied in military history, and he once made the point that historically veteran units were only about 2x better than green units. We already far exceed that in this game with the standard 60 man units.

    the suggestion to make kensai slower to earn upgrades may alleviate this?
    i worry about making kensai too vulnerable to missile weapons if we lower his armour,
    and BFN missiles ignore armour?
    making BFN the counter to an uber Kensai...
    perhaps we should make a very small BFN unit as a merc???
    so player who cannot get BFN through tech level can hire one???
    (this unit would have one goal and needs to be designed for that goal
    - assassinate uber kensai on the battlefield using their missiles, but be vulnerable to everything else so they dont become a game winner)

    perhaps we need to make it harder to level up?

    Q - what effect does discipline REALLY have?
    perhaps we can make low end dojo's upgrade discipline and only upgrade valour at top end of scale??
