    Default Medieval Total War is coming to Steam!

    Aaanddddd here we go!



    According to the latest Rally Point, our beloved Medieval Total War is coming to Steam.

    That means no more video card problems and dozens of fixes, plus you can have it alongside your other Total War games. Plus, more players to this incredible game, hopefully the MP will work out as well.
    Woo woo woo
    Ja mata, TosaInu. You will forever be remembered.

    If they have fixed the problems with the video cards and newer OSes, this is really something to celebrate!

    I wonder how the Steam version will work with mods...

    I also wonder how multiplayer will work. STW/MTW were more about MP battles (and player clans) than the later titles.

    I suppose that's better then nothing; Steam sucks. I'd been much happier if they went with GOG.

    Technically, it should allow the MP scene to play on hosted servers, given that the game is now reworked for the modern video cards and Steam.

    Yeah, I definitely noticed that bit when I was watching the video. (I thought I was hallucinating at first!) Definitely outstanding news!

    Indeed. I really hope they have; that would be simply fantastic!

    That was my other main question/concern as well (other than the compatibility with modern machines/OS's). Here's hopin'!

    I'm not so sure about that,as I've been trying to get a clear answer from them on that regard on the Total War official forums,and they haven't replied to my question/s as of yet. I'd like to think they know better to release a game in this condition but after Rome 2, I'm doubtful let's just say.

    Apparently, Medieval TW will get Windows 7 & 8 compatibility, along with large screen usage (16:9 and 4:3) and some form of MP through LAN.

    Ah. My inept google skills can only find Med II links, an old totalwar.com thread, and this thread. It would be nice to see something official.

    It was posted on reddit by Nico, unfortunately because this is a new account I can't link it yet, but searching for this quote + Last Roman Campaign pack should turn up the reddit thread.
    Both games will now support wide-screen, high resolution (16:9 & 4:3), Windows 7 & 8 if purchased through Steam.
    There hasn't been much information the last few days, so I just hope everything works later today ;-)

    Purchased. The old version runs for me, but for $10 I can switch machines on travel without worrying about graphics cards and such. Work isn't leaving me much time now, but I'll start looking into installing mods onto the Steam version soon.

    Could someone who has already bought the new steam version make some tests and write a short review? I wanted to buy it but screenshots like this tell me that not all problems were fixed for the steam release. I wonder if there are more of them left.

    Steam does have a reasonable return policy. You have 14 days from purchase, as long as you don't play the game for more than 2 hours.,

    I got that problem from time to time with the CD version. I could always fix it by:

    1: Pause

    2: Group some units, even if I didn't want them together

    3: Return the Grouping setup to how I liked it

    4: Unpause

    So it might be a MTW problem rather than a steam problem.
    In those simple times there was a great wonder and mystery in life. Man walked in fear and solemnity, with Heaven very close above his head, and Hell below his very feet. God's visible hand was everywhere, in the rainbow and the comet, in the thunder and the wind. The Devil too raged openly upon the earth; he skulked behind the hedge-rows in the gloaming; he laughed loudly in the night-time; he clawed the dying sinner, pounced on the unbaptized babe, and twisted the limbs of the epileptic. A foul fiend slunk ever by a man's side and whispered villainies in his ear, while above him there hovered an angel of grace . . .

    I'd like to know that as well,and also,is modding it on steam easy? As I've had problems with other games in the past on this matter. In the Old one I could load up Gnome Editor and change the units as I felt fit,but this may not be the case if it's on Steam.

    I modded out peasants and ballista without any problems, so you can edit game files and run. Not sure how to manage multiple mods, maybe just do the same as non-Steam, except you would need to copy the desired mod into your Steam dir before running?
