Thread: Europa Barbarorum for Rome Total War - Remastered

    Lightbulb Europa Barbarorum for Rome Total War - Remastered

    Hey everyone,

    like everyone else, I am f**king hyped about Rome Total War - Remastered. Basically my first game I ever played or more like watched my dad play it because I wasn't old enough ;)

    Anyway, I know there is/was a big modding community behind RTW especially with EB. I don't know if the original developers of the mod have planned anything for the remastered version but I (and probably the whole community) would really love to see a remastered EU version.

    I wanted to offer my help with any coding/voicing etc. As far as I'm aware though there are mostly designers required for modeling the units.
    Maybe we can use this thread for everyone that would like to help with the project and maybe one of the "old" developers can assign some tasks if necessary.
    I'm sure there is lots to do.

    I really hope we manage to find some people to help with this project! So anyone willing to help, write a comment down below!

    We will not port EB to Rome Remastered but if you want, you can help us with the development of Europa Barbarorum II.

    Well If I had to guess, the team has been working on EB2 for something like a decade, so giving it up now would be silly.

    That being said, there are certain things that MTW2 lacks that I think makes EB2 a bit less enjoyable, things like the lack of testudos and other relatively minor things so I certainly do have high hopes that a historically-focused mod will emerge that is on par with EB1. Time will tell.

    There are still a lot of unknowns, but I think it would be a missed opportunity to put no effort toward porting EB I to the Remaster. EB I might be superseded by EB II but it's still fondly remembered by many (including me), and those who have been put off RTW due to its age and lack of support might try it. New players won't learn about EB if it isn't playable on the Remaster, sadly. If there will be no official effort made, I'd hope for a group willing to give EB I a new coat of paint rather than try and reinvent the wheel. I am sure I'm not alone in considering the Remaster solely because of EB.

    It doesn't make much sense for the actual creators of EB to do this when it would make significantly more sense for fans of EB to begin porting it into the remastered version. All you would need to do is take the already created game format as well as the sound files then update the graphics and rewrite it all so it fits the new version of Rome total war. A lot more work than it sounds however the hard work is done like historical research, game design, voice acting, music editing... The main thing we would need is actual programmers to write code and graphic designers to create the newer graphics from the base games.

    Well, the way I see it, the team as a whole is right. Bear in mind the team's got its hands full with EBII. And anyway: At most a port is needed, and this can be done by a small, dedicated team of modders re-exporting the materials. This can conceivably be done by the fans, should they so choose. A tool is already provided--the IWTE tool--which you can get on the relevant Discord page (and IIRC the TWcenter).

    It's straightforward enough that I've been populating a version of my own mod (For the Seven Years War) to Remastered (which confused a few people, who though I was ditching the original before finishing it: a lot of people I know who play my mod (for reasons that stump me) won't get the Remaster, due to what news has come of it).

    Keep in mind that the Show Me How button has been removed from the UI in Remastered, so the EB background script as it stands cannot be ported...yet. Word on the grapevine is that Feral is working on an alternative way to script. Time will tell.

    EB1 was epic. The best strategy war game ever, IMHO. I'd die for a Rome Remastered port of EB1.

    On the other hand, by the time they'd finish porting EB1 to TW:RR, Medieval 2 will have been remastered :P

    It's probably the unofficial port of EB1.

    Seems to me that the "unofficial port" of EB for RTW:R says quite plainly that it can be done. And that it was done so quickly, that it's not as difficult as some want to make it out to be.

    Seems to me that there is no reason for the EB team to not cherry pick a few modders they trust, lay some ground rules re: content of finished product, and create an official EB port for RTW:R.

    Many of us are going to play EB for RTW:R. official would be better, but if the "because we don't want to" keeps on keeping on from the EB team, then it's gonna just have to be the unofficial.

    The EB team's choice to make.

    2.0.4 patch.

    If the info in this vid is true, then a whole lot of problems went away.

    MASSIVE NEW UPDATE FOR ROME REMASTERED CHANGES EVERYTHING! - Total War News
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BbRxlqofK2E

    Faction cap raised to unlimited.
    Region cap raised to unlimited.
    Custom scripting enabled.
    And a lot more.

    It's not like it's a re-creation of the mod from the ground up, with all the research, decision making, choosing which faction and why, etc, so on and so forth, has to be done all over again. All that's necessary is porting what exists in EB1 to RTW:R and making it available by the Workshop.

    And, it's already been done. But, wouldn't we all rather it be an official release?

    Put out the call. Pick some modders that have the skill for porting and that want their names as helpers on the project, and issue the orders to "go forth and get it done".

    Does anyone know what current "Rome Total War" selection in the Steam library you can install EB1 on? I need to make a new account for a student and was going to purchase RTW (which has been cheap in the past), *but* I can't tell which one to buy and put EB1 on? Is the only option the Rome Total War Collection? (which is not even purchaseable now)?
