    Hello greaterkhaan,

    If you play campaigns and do not auto-resolve battles, playing custom battles is indeed a way to learn. A good understanding/feel for battles will help during the campaign.

Use the file manager to navigate to the mtw/vi folder and delete all the maps in \Battle\Maps including those in the \Battle\Maps\vikings folder. Unzip the beta 8 into the mtw/vi folder. The beta 8 should work.

    If you want vanilla mtw/vi as well, then before installing beta 8 over mtw/vi use the file manager to create a new folder, and then copy the entire contents of the mtw/vi folder to that new folder. Unzip the beta 8 into that new mtw/vi folder. Using the file manager, right click on the Medieval_TW.EXE file in that new mtw/vi folder and select Create Shortcut. The beta 8 install might create this shortcut, but I don't remember. Rename the shortcut to whatever name you want. Copy the shortcut to your desktop. Right click the shortcut, and select properties. Leave a space and add -strictserver to the target line. Use the shortcut to start the beta 8 game. The auto run from the CD will start vanilla mtw/vi.

    not working m8.

    I made a new folder because I still wanted to play VI, and still doesn't work.don't know.

    Warman,

    Do you see the Samurai Warlords beta 8 startup screen when you click on the shortcut you made?

    Sounds like the unzip of beta 8 went to the wrong place. Windows unzip puts the contents in a subfolder under the folder you tell it to unzip into. If that happened, you could cut and paste the contents of that subfolder up one level into the new mtw/vi folder.

    Another way to install this would be to unzip to a \temp folder, and then use cut and paste to move the unzipped files to the new mtw/vi folder.

    You can also bypass the shortcut by clicking directly on the Medieval_TW.EXE in the new mtw/vi folder to see if that starts the beta 8.

    Puzz,

    In my new MTW/VI Folder, There is a folder called

    modfiles

    and in there is all of the Beta 8 unzipped stuff.

    OK. I didn't realize the zip version put everything under a \modfiles folder.

    What you have to do is use file manager to navigate into that modfiles folder, select all the files and folders in there, right click on them and select cut. Then navigate up one level, use right click and paste the files into the mtw/vi folder. Answer "yes to all" when it asks to replace a file. Remember to delete all the maps in \Battle\Maps before doing this cut and paste.

    Hey Tosa,

    yea,you will see me next Sunday also. Only Ploblem I had was, before I left, CBR (I think), hosted a game, and I had ploblems seeing his game then and a little while back before I fought Tosa,plus it seem when I was typing, it came up very slow. Other then that, my two 1v1's ran smoothly.

    It seems GameSpy is acting up at times (invisible games, lag).

    Download and installation went fine; I must say that Barocca and anyone has worked on this modification did an impressive job, many thanks to all.
    I saw also new pieces in Barocca post of last 26 june but they are not included in the beta 8,
    may we expect a new release or those new improvements are available elsewhere ?

    Cheers

    There will be a beta 9, but probably not for a while. In the meantime, I have made a preliminary set of new castle maps for evaluation, and these can be installed on the beta 8.

    SW_castles_2 is a set of 8 castle maps repeated 3 times to replace castleflat_01, castlehilly01 and castleplains01. Also included are new model parameter files to adjust the strength and firepower of gates and walls.

    To install this first delete all the castle maps in \Battle\Maps, and then unrar this archive to your main Samurai Warlords beta 8 folder. Let the install overwrite the existing files. Don't install this to a version of beta 8 that you use for MP, because it will make your game incompatible with other MP players.

    Also, I would suggest reducing the kensai combat stats to be att=9, def=7 otherwise he becomes too strong due to battlefield upgrades.

    Also, you may want to switch to the new province incomes, which I think work well, as detailed in this post by barocca.

    Hey,

    yea, it seems like lately, when I did those 1v1's with Tosa that one Sunday, it worked fine, I didn't have much lag or anything, but these past 2 sundays, I kept getting these out of memory error messages. CBR said it's proably a driver issue if I remember correctly.

    I think your battlefield screen resolution may be set too high. It also might help to set the desktop to 16-bit color.

    You could try reinstalling DirectX 9.0c.

    Hello {BHC}KingWarman888,

    Better than it was some years ago, but still a bit of a jungle indeed.

    This is what I downloaded I think. Yes, looks like it.

    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...DisplayLang=en

    What is your problem? If you have a newer DX, you can't just install.

    This is a more recent one
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...DisplayLang=en

    Edit: for me the MS server pops up can't find pages at times, but the provided URLs are correct, just try a few times again.
