    Default Announcement: Europa Barbarorum 2.2b is released!


    Greetings fans of Europa Barbarorum!

    This has been a little longer in the development than we'd originally planned; what was supposed to have been a bugfix and gameplay update (2.1c if you will), has instead morphed into another full release, complete with a load of new units and a host of other new features. There was a target date floated on Facebook of May, we're slightly over that because we've been allowing the pre-release testing to run its course. It was rushing this vital, last phase, that led to 2.1 having to ship with a Day One patch, and all the woes that attended that. There may well be a 2.2a/b/whatever patch, but hopefully we've ironed out enough of the issues that popped up that it won't be necessary.

    As always it's necessary to be absolutely explicit about this point:

    THIS RELEASE IS NOT SAVEGAME COMPATIBLE


    This is a complete installation, it's best if you remove any previous versions of EBII you have installed.



    [Windows] Pre-installation instructions

    1) If you are a Steam user, and your M2TW is in Program Files or Program Files (x86) you need to move your game, or reinstall it outside of that folder. This isn't negotiable, you will not be able to patch or otherwise modify your EBII if the game is installed there. UAC may unpredictably and silently interfere with your files, breaking your installation, to say nothing of problems with VirtualStore. The official instructions on how to move a game are here. If those do not work, try these instead.

    2) If you are not a Steam user, but you have M2TW installed in Program Files or Program Files (x86) you need to move your game, or reinstall it outside of that folder. For exactly the same reasons as above.

    Optional: Re-install M2TW. Then start a campaign to make sure it's all still working. If you have other mods active, you won't want to do this, but it will likely result in a cleaner experience.

    3) You must have Kingdoms installed - at least one of the mods, though not necessarily all of them. EBII needs the kingdoms.exe to run.

    If you ignore step 1/2 and later come to the Bug Reports/Technical Help forum, and it arises you have your game installed in Program Files/Programe Files (x86), don't expect any meaningful assistance until after you've moved your installation and tried that.


    [Windows/Mac/Linux] Installation instructions

    For Mac/Linux users it is assumed that you have Feral Interactives version of M2TW Kingdoms, if not and you are a Linux user please follow the instructions in the post here and then follow the 'Linux Post installation instructions' in this post.

    For Windows users any version (CD or Steam version) will do so long as it is M2TW Kingdoms and not just M2TW. EBII needs the kingdoms.exe to run.

    1. Download the EBII installer using one of the provided download links.

    2. Uninstall the previous version of EBII (there's a shortcut for it in your start menu).

    3. The downloaded file is a zip archive, which means you need to unpack the installer files from the zip file. Windows Explorer should allow you to simply copy the contents out. If not, you can download 7-zip for the purpose.

    4. Run EBII.exe.

    5. Step through the install wizard. Make sure the installer is pointed at your M2TW directory - you may need to change it from the default if it is pointing at Program Files.

    6. Wait for the installer to copy all the files.

    7. If you have never run M2TW vanilla after installing it, run that now. Start a campaign, then quit.

    8. Run the mod using the shortcut placed in your start menu or desktop. Start a campaign, then quit.

    9. Make sure your error log is working properly so you can properly report any issues. Go into [your M2TW directory]\mods\EBII\EBII.cfg and make sure under [log] it says:

    Code:
    to = mods/ebii/logs/eb.system.log.txt 
    level = * trace
    This means the log will be stored as eb.system.log.txt in [your M2TW directory]\mods\EBII\logs\ - we will need this log any time you report an error. No log, no resolution, for the most part.

    Report your errors in the EB Bug Reports and Technical Help forum, not in this thread.

    10. It's highly recommended that you play with windowed, borderless mode - this both improves campaign performance and increases stability too. In the same config file as above, ensure these values:

    Code:
    [video]
    windowed = 1
    borderless_window = 1
    If "1" doesn't work, try "true" instead. Note you'll have to enter your native resolution in there to get a proper-sized window. You also need to ensure your medieval2.preferences.cfg doesn't have conflicting values.

    Alternatively, we've bundled a windowed mode/fullscreen mode switcher program in with the installation, it looks thus:



    All you should need to do is click the Windowed button.

    11. You need to switch off autosave, it causes crashes and corrupts saved game files. In your EBII.cfg (as above), under [game] add:

    Code:
    auto_save = 0

    Post-installation instructions

    1. There is a pre-packaged map.rwm included with this version, which means the first campaign startup should be swift. EDIT: I got a "graphical error" crash on my first campaign-run attempt; if you do I'd recommend deleting your map.rwm from ebii\data\world\maps\base before restarting the game. The subsequent first campaign will take longer to start than usual, but wait and let it finish.

    2. We've bundled the Recruitment Viewer in with the installer; in order to use it, you need to ensure you have the latest version of Java installed.


    [Linux] Mandatory Post installation instructions

    1. Copy no_banner.mesh from share/data/mods/ebii/data/banners to share/data/data/banners (yes outside of the mod's folder).

    2. Delete your settlements folder in share/data/mods/ebii/data


    [Mac] Mandatory Post installation instructions

    1. Move the no_banner.mesh in medieval2data/mods/ebii/data/banners onto your desktop

    2. Place the no_banner.mesh you moved onto your desktop and then navigate to
    medieval2data/data

    3. Create a new folder named banners and then move or paste the no_banner.mesh into medieval2data/data/banners (the folder you just created)


    4. Move your settlements folder in m2tw/data/mods/ebii/data to your desktop.

    Please note you absolutely must move the no_banner.mesh out of your medieval2data/mods/ebii/data/banners folder or it will not work properly.


    Links

    There are two versions of the files, one with an installer, the other a simple zip file. The links are here:

    EBII v2.2b Download:
    Torrent - installer version
    Torrent - ZIP version
    EB FTP (installer)
    EB FTP (non-installer)
    The Org FTP (installer)

    Please keep seeding these when you get them, so everyone else can share.

    If you have the means to host the files, please do so and share the link - I'll update this post with it.


    Change List

    The change list since 2.1b is pretty huge, given it's been six months of near-constant development since then. There have been 1904 logged changes since 21st December last year, some small, some huge as you'll see. At the summary level, please see the preview thread, which captures the essence of most of them.

    If your own contribution has been forgotten (and you want to be listed in the credits),
    please contact us in the forum and we will sort it out.

    And a very special thank you to the people who this modification was created for: the keyboard consuls, screen watching strategoi,
    philosophising players and mouse clicking chieftains. Thank you to every fan of Europa Barbarorum, whoever you are and wherever you are.
    Thank you for sharing in our passion, thank you for supporting us and above all, we hope you have fun.

    We also thank the following for inspiration: Monty Python, Caesar 3, Gladiatus, 0 A.D.

    Thank you from the Europa Barbarorum II Team


    Special mentions also go to all the people who've been invaluable acting as playtesters in the long-running testing cycle. You've been tireless in finding bugs, checking things work, making suggestions and for a select group, seeding the mod so everyone can get it. Thank you.


    And finally...

    In closing - EBII is still not complete. We are not finished - there will be future releases. We are somewhere past halfway now - what we still need, what we always need, are more willing volunteers. If you are a 3D artist able to work with 3DS Max, or a 2D artist who can work to instructions, we want you. If you have a knowledge in ancient history and a desire to contribute, we want you. If you are a scripter or coder, and have some familiarity with the files used here (compiled with C++ I believe), we want you. If you can proofread and edit XML files accurately, we want you. If you can playtest the ever-living crap out of a game, then do it all over again after a minor change, we want you. If you like the mod, and are eager to learn how to do something that can help to contribute, we want you. Apply here.

    As ever, thank you for your support and remember to read more history.

    I've updated the original post with a link to the v2.2a patch.

    Not savegame compatible, it should fix several of the commonly reported issues (like enslavement causing crashes) and alters a few other things. Iberia has been shaken up a little more; no more wall-less villages, and no more falcatas for Lusitanians or Celtiberians. Leusitane bodyguards are less overpowered as a result. Lots more tweaks besides, I'll write the list up properly later.

    This update is a great step change: The CAI is so much more interesting, aggressive and intuitive! (started as carthage, had good relations with my numidian neighbors who back-stabbed me as soon as I set off for Sicily :) ); as a result the game progression is slower and more realistic; the BAI has improved but seeing some mexican stand offs in battles where the aggressor AI player fails to attack my defensive position and just camps in one corner waiting for me; the unit rosters, cards and in game descriptions are a delight; I am finding this so much more enjoyable than previous version. Many thanks to all of those involved in this work.

    I don't know exactly where to put this, so I'll do it here, I don't think it's worth a thread.
    I found a piece of text that looks like a remnant of EB1 in the "Amicus Populi Romani" description (the allied government precursor, I didn't check for others factions)
    It talks about homeland and expansion, which, as far as I'm concerned, aren't a thing anymore in EB2.

    2.2b now released.

    There's a lot of team members off on their summer holidays now, so don't expect 2.2c til the autumn at the earliest.

    You need a torrent client like qbitorrent.

    No, like it says in the big, red, bold letters at the top of the instructions, not savegame compatible. No patch or update is ever savegame compatible.

    A simple no would have been enough. It was a simple oversight. No need for sarcasm.

    Hi guys,
    So i've downloaded & installed ebii 2.2b, added the EDB update.zip. edited the cultural conversion rates to suit my needs so they rise quickly, edited natural disasters and traitors/turn coat frequency i reduced. finally i edited reforms and set polybian to 4 turns and marian to 8 just to see if they were working properly but nothing happened. No reforms appeared.

    Any help please much appreciated.

    I wasn't being sarcastic (tone carries poorly in a textual format), I was being emphatic. I get asked this question frequently, I'm making sure there's no room for misinterpretation.

    Original post updated with non-torrent links. 2.2c when it comes will be a zip file patch, so you need 2.2b regardless of whether or not you choose to play now.

    Playing as Pontus. Isn't it rather early for them to recruit the Persian Royal Cavalry in the Governor-General Government? Being a rather expensive heavy cavalry, shouldn't they only be available after the reforms?

    Also related to the reforms. Do I need to kill the Enemy General as part of the reforms requirements?
