    Default Svenn's installation problems

    Perhaps someone can help me....

    Earlier today i uninstalled EB (and with it my 170bc Casse) becuase after trying to download the phalanx mini mod it stopped working altogether - but thats another story.

    Anyway, i tried to install it again first into c/users/savedgames/rome + eb/ - no luck there for some reason

    Then i tried c/programfiles/creativeassembly/Rome: total war... this didnt work either?!?!

    Im stumped because when i downloaded it first time a few months back it worked fine!

    There is one thing thats diffrent about today however - when i downloaded it the shortcut was called 'EB Play' but when i got EB originally the shortcut was called 'EB Single Player' - whats changed?!

    Thanks

    Are you sure you've installed EB 1.1 before EB 1.2? EB 1.2 is a patch, not the full mod. You should be able to use the Trivial Script to start EB the same way as you did with 1.1, even after installing EB 1.2.

    I tried again today

    Yes i defnitely installed EB 1.1 before 1.2, however when i entered the save location for the patch - the bit where it says something like 'c:/[please insert the file location of RTW then delete this]' i entered c:/users/home/savedgames/ (the location of Rome:TW on my pc) then it said 'c:/users/home/savedgames already exists, install here anyway?' --- i didnt understand that bit?? bur carried on regardless

    In the file containing Rome, EB etc theres a shortcut called 'EB play' - when i double click this i get Rome:TW / Vannilla TW (whatevere you want to call it). When i go to properties it says next to the 'Target' Heading - 'Target: "C:\Users\Home\Saved Games\RomeTW.exe" -show_error"'..... Could that<< be the problem?

    Also, when i press the Start menu and search for EB (im using Vista) i find 'Run Europa Barbarorum' - i click this and nothing happens - i open properties and on Target theres a blank space - shoudnt something be in there??

    Ive given all the information i can about possible causes of the problem. I hope someone can help.


    EDIT-

    UPDATE!

    I mixture of desperation and curiosity led me to downloading the 'EB Setup up for BI' mod/patch/variant... and it works!!!!!!!

    However i would still love to know what happned with regard to my RTW install




    Thanks

    What happened was the bug in the installer that makes a wrong shortcut. It's part of the frequent issues.

    You were right, However

    It wasnt that the quotation marks were in the wroing place that was the problem (id already tried that) it was that, at the end of the target shortcut, it said ..... -show_error instead of -show_err_ne

    Also when EB start it takes up around 3/4 of the screen for some reason.
    Im not to bothered about this seen as though i have BI working


    Thanks for your help
