  • RELEASE :[TGC 0.98 public alpha II] Released version 09.03.2021

    The Great Conflicts 872-1071

    goes public alpha II ,TGC 0.9.8
    How to install the mod:
    a) Download 0.9.8 to your system. Optional: download the optional Stuff too. We split this in two, as you don´t need to download the optional stuff everytime a new version of TGC show´s up. This will reduce the filesize for the main download.

    b) Open the downloaded TGC_public_alpha_II 7zip file with 7zip and you will see a "TGC_melt" named folder

    c) Extract/paste all into your Medieval 2 Total war ...\mods\ folder. Note that TGC is a complete seperate install and don´t interfere with any other mods or versions. Go inside your newly installed mods\TGC_melt folder. There´s a batch file called "Launch_TGC.bat" to start the game. Doubleclick. When done correctly, you will notice the version "TGC public alpha II" in the Loadingscreen.

    d) (Optional) The Game will start in "windowed" and "borderless window" mode enabled to provide better stability.

    You can make a shortcut of the "Launch_TGC.bat" file and put it to your desktop. There´s a icon file in mods\TGC_melt to make it look pretty .
    How to start a new campaign
    lock and unlock a factions like in a hotseatcampaign. You need to choose only one faction(!!!) that is marked with a white underground, otherwise the game kicks you back and you can try it again!

    If so: you most likely have locked more than 1 faction (lombards are in by default). Choose the faction you like to play and you will notice a blinking white underground around there factionicon. this means that faction is locked - but you now have to unlock the Lombards for example, or any other faction you may have locked in at the process by clicking on there icon one time (there factionicon blinks white when locked). Look at the video in post #19 below, 2:20 - 2:50
