    EB 1.2 Official Script, Sprites and EDB fixes.
    This official EB 1.2 fix adds missing sprites, missing nomad mercenary general recruitment and several EBBS script fixes. This will possibly remove any errors you may have had before. No screenshots (obviously).

    Darth Vader's AI Formations v 16.2 for EB.
    What it does is make the AI get better formations at the start of a battle, with many historically realistic formations. Adapted for EB by Lysander13.

    Jirisys' Phalanx Mod Reduplication.
    It modifies the Makedonian and Classical phalanx, the Makedonian phalanxes are now more vulnerable from missiles, they push harder, but it may make them push so hard that they lose formation cohesion. The Classical phalanx now marches without dragging the spears beneath the ground, have shorter, 9 foot spears, keep the formation when charging and fighting, making them push harder, being less lethal to reflect hoplite warfare.
    Screenshots from the original creator's thread (Only from the classical phalangites, as the effect for the Makedonian phalangites cannot be shown on images):

    New EB Quotes.
    Modifies and adds several new quotes for the transition screen, the old ones have a more expanded source and new ones are great just as well. An official EB AddOn.

    1.Support for multirun parameter: use it to run multiple instances of EB side by side
    2.Support for na parameter: use it to disable all audio from EB
    3.Support for ai parameter: use it to let the AI control all factions so you can watch

    Instructions for both the Rome: Total War and the Rome: Total War - Alexander versions are contained either, in the ReadMe file (JRTWEBMMP ReadMe.txt and JRTWAEBMMP ReadMe.txt respectively) in the Installation section. Or within the executable, in the same section in the readme within it.

    Unfortunately, this mod is Not Save-Game Compatible, and very likely that newer versions will not be either with the old ones, or on themselves.
    Unless expecifically stated, The newer versions will be fully compatible, but you will still need to restart your campaign.

    The file is an executable (.exe) and is 113 MB for the Rome: Total War current version (v. 1.0.2) and 148 MB for the Rome: Total War - Alexander current version (v. 1.0.3).

    Three mirrors will contain the executables:
    MegaUpload
    FileFront
    FileFactory

    BEFORE YOU DOWNLOAD!

    There is a serious problem that causes lots and lots of CTD, it's the New Quotes and a Watchtower Village Mod error I made, they have some issues that cause CTDs, so here is the fix. MUST HAVE. Just extract it into your RTW folder (e.g. D:\Program Files\Activision\Rome - Total War).

    I took into account the advice of "Easterner" back in the Guild.

    So, I'm releasing these semi-complete mods that I had stored for the whole release.

    They are 100% compatible, just extract it into your RTW\ folder.

    First. Victory Conditions images for the Victory Conditions mod. (I've altered the VCs a tad, but it's fully SGC).

    Mediafire

    Total War Center

    Second. The Epilektoi Hoplitai Voice Correction (No longer do they say "Thorakitai Hoplitai", but "Hoplitai")

    Mediafire

    Total War Center

    Third. Trivial Script for Alexander with updated EBO 2.1 EDU (Yes! You can use Trivial script to access Alexander now! Only detail is that if you have changed the EDU or Map.rwm, you paste it into EB\sp game edu backup\, otherwise, the JEBMMP default files will be placed)

    Mediafire

    Total War Center

    Requested fixes:

    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    This reverts the non-border stratmap/battlemap mod. Just extract this file in your RTW folder. NOT YOUR EB FOLDER. Your RTW one, where RTW.exe is in.

    For the Stratmap:
    Mediafire

    Total War Center

    For the Battlemap:
    Mediafire

    Total War Center

    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    And also, to disable the Realistic Movement Mod, follow the same drill again (extract file in your RTW forlder).

    I might try this later, looks really impressive!

    A small n00b question though; Installing this doesn't in some magical way mess with my RTW-exe EB files, non?

    I would like to ask for Konny's Trait changes mod to be able to be played (with this mod and without CTD before starting a campaign)
    And also V.T. Marvin's Spoils of victory.

    New Alex version and RTW version is up :D

    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    Not to degrade his work (It's awesome and maybe i'd never be able to do it) but Atraphoenix is very sloppy, he copies all the folder, so I don't have the time (or patience) to eliminate those files not necesary to work and have less file size, so it's a little bit (a lot more) heavy in sizes thanks to his mod's contents)

    So fellow orgah members please do try this out, comment etc. Let us not allow jirisys efforts go unnoticed.

    Hey there guys, I just created an account here exclusively to comment on this thread! So good job! Now why I did that was to suggest uploading this mod to the Total War Center, it seems that most of the traffic still coming through EB is there and this mod could get a better recognition if more people got at it.

    I also wanted to say that I seem to be having some issues with the Alex version. Im redownloading and installing the mod, but I got errors that wouldnt leave about my export descr_buildings file concerning the legions. I even went in to delete all referances from them and then I got errors about a reasorce not being found in the same file. The only other slight minimod I use is the new textures for the battle maps and those are simple graphic swaps not affecting the buildings file at all. Hopefully reinstalling the mod will help, but it was a really wierd thing. I got it to run once, started a campaign and exited jsut to create a new Map.rwm file, and then it crashed on the first loading screen with those errors all other times. Ill check back in if reinstalling doesnt fix it

    Ok it turns out that if you even touch the trivial script after this is installed it breaks it. A reinstall of the mod fixes it again though so thats good. Unfrotunatly this mod turns on minimal UI and I have no means of turning it off. I cant stand minimal UI personally and even though it appears to be turned off in ever preferance file I can find in the entire Rome folder, it still is on in EB. A way to fix it would be greatly appreciated as its already off in the trivial script and like I said, I cant even touch that of the game will crash at startup.

    Sorry to make three posts in a row, but man... I just started a campaign with this as my only active mod for EB. Movement points are destroyed, like compeltely destroyed. And I dont mean no one has any, every single unit can move MASSIVE distances in a single turn. In fact they get to the edge of their green movement zone (which is already huge) and then they can keep going for nearly 2 times the original giant movement zone. My elephants at the start of the Carthage campaign could walk to Rome in a single turn. My general in Sidon could move within 6 tiles of Babalonia in a single turn. It is the realist movement mod but I NEED a way to turn it off, would installing the backup descr_character text from the mod itself remove it and still be compatible with this? I dont care if realisicly a roman army with fully paved roads could move very far away in a few months, the whole series of Total War tries to balance gameplay with history, and that crushes gameplay completely.

    Hello, glad to see you are here, First off, you turn Minimal UI off or on on the preferences.txt in the Rome - Total War\EB\preferences\ folder, in the section MINIMAL_UI=TRUE change it to FALSE.

    Second, to turn off the Realistic Movement mod, just go to you descr_character.txt on BOTH EB\Data\ and EB\sp game edu backup and change the line "starting_action_points 260" to "starting_action_points 80" and that's it.

    I'll post it on TWCenter right now. Thanks

    EDIT: As a side note, I'd recommend not touching any files of a mod without either:
    a. Asking to the modder which files you would need to edit and how.
    b. Having a very detailed ReadMe on EACH of every single mod (and file modification). Or.
    c. Having advanced knowledge of text modding.

    It has happened to me, a reason why I can't put some mods in.

    You know it, although... I'd recommend using your campaign as a test drive, because more and more versions will come up... Just to taste the awesomeness of this mod, until I stabilize it's development.

    you better. I'm getting tons of CTDs =/. That said, it's a novel addition and a fresh change to the EB experience.

    Is there any particular ocurrence to this?
    I might check the files right now to see if there's a problem with them, cause they work fine with me

    random ones that happen at the ends of turns....very frequent end of battle CTDs...all annoying and frequent. I'm talking about them happening almost every several minutes/turns. The longest campaign I've managed w/o a CTD thus far is pontos: at around 263 BC

    I'm uploading a new version, maybe It will erase some bugs; by the way, do you use the Alex version or the Rome: Total War version?

    Ok I installed the mini-mod pack a while ago, and I put this on top of there, and it seems to work fine except a few CTDS which other people already reported without using the mini-mod pack.
    The most frequent CTDs are actually when I'm going INTO a battle though. Could it have something to do with having RS2 environments? Because I do. Other than that, the only CTDs I get are the pretty standard after-battle crashes, which I think everyone probably gets at least every once and a while, and the rare (every 10-20 years) crashes after/before a turn.

    I think yes, RS2 env and other texture altering mods most likely cause Pre-Battle CTDs...

    I cannot assure the stabily of this, as mods always push the limits of EB to it's max and since EB itself pushes RTW's to the max, then the result is pretty much desktopy

    ~Jirisys (However, I assure myself to test compatibility and stability beforehand)

    I noticed more CTD's than I remember having with vanilla EB while playing as Rome and Makedonia. Happens most frequently when ending turns or loading a battle.

    However, playing as the Casse I cant get past turn 2 without it crashing. It just crashes at any time during turn 2, just on simple things like moving some troops or changing a tax rate.

    I've just downloaded the new version and will see if it makes a difference.

    Ok, well I installed the update, (1.01) and it works much better, I can sometimes go 15 turns or more without a crash, (which is basically how my game always is) so that's good. However, I think I found a weird bug, that can only have been caused by this. It was roughly 250 B.C., and I find a Carthaginian General named Bisaltes, who was 27 years old at the time. He had the Biography trait of Hamilcar Barca. Now, perhaps Bisaltes is Hamilcar in a devious disguise, because Hamilcar should be about 27 in the time that I am in, however I doubt it. I only mention this here because I know this mod affects quite a few traits, and it is conceivable that some traits got misplaced.

    It's working better on the new version as Casse. Haven't crashed so far and it's running smoother. When I played previously I did revert the movement to normal but will keep it in this time and see how it changes things.

    By the way I noticed with this new version you've set the preferences.txt to be in minimal UI by default. I think most people who download your mod will find this extremely confusing, as their first experience will be entering battle and no longer having the ability to issue the essential commands that they are used to having on their screens.

    Personally I click on the screen to change run speed, take men off battering rams etc and I've never used minimal AI before so basically had to cancel my battle, quit the game and go change the preferences so that I could keep playing. Considering that having minimal AI is a purely cosmetic thing that most people arnet used to I think it's better to have it off by default.

    I agree, it can be confusing, but as far as I'm concerned, I never knew minimal AI was an option, now that your mod had it activated, I love it!
    And it's fairly easy to use the EB Configuration to switch back.

    I just edited several traits, never touched the Biography ones. I'll take a look at the descr_strat.txt to see why that happens.
    Thank you, I may release an update sooner than expected if there's a problem.

    Yes, I know it's confusing, I'll edit it, anyhow, I think the problem was that AutoSave was turned on, and since saving before a battle is very buggy, this just made a full on destruction of the game. Hope you keep me posted tho

    Yes, but I might add it to the recomendations section of the ReadMe, in any case; you could just edit your setting, and backup the preferences file, so that you may replace the one included with the installer.

    jiri, I may be misstaken, but your OP earlier said something about the City Mod and Alex.Exe nightbattles being non-compatible. Perhaps it can be included as a RTW.exe only mod?

    Too buggy, it needs an update, an I still can't mod the EDB.

    Okay, I have decided to switch my game from RTW.exe to Alexander. Do I need to install Maximus' mod from his thread, and THEN this, or is that mod 100% included in this modpack?
