    Default Archive- Old Download & Install information (beta7)

    Hello,

    seeing that we have info all over the place and people have difficulties finding the download links or installing the mod, I thought I collect all info in this thread. If you encounter any problems, post here.

    What do you need? (pre-install requirements)


    1. A working version of Medieval:Total War/ Viking Invasion (M:TW/VI). (Gold or Eras versions should also work)
    2. The 2.01 patch for Viking Invasion. (check your games version by going to the Main Menu (in game), in the upper left corner the version number is displayed) Available here



    Current stable Multiplayer version: Download here
    If you just want to join us on Sundays for Multiplayer games, you just need this one download and don't need to look further down. Maps for Multiplayer are in teh old Multiplayer Mappack 1-3 for MTW/VI.



    ]-----------------------------------------------------------------------[

    The Shogun-mod beta 7 files:

    Shogun mod beta 7 (Samurai Warlords) files, Install in this order:

    1. Shogun mod beta 7 For your convenience it comes as a self-installer.
    Download link

    2. patch for the Beta_7 version that fixes some things. (for list of changes see beta_7 thread)
    Download here

    3. MP Mappack:
    Download here

    4. Two patches or hotfixes for MP. If you want to be up to date with the beta_7 MP testing you need these:
    1. MP patch, issued Sunday 15.10.

    2. MP patch, issued Sunday 22.10


    ]-----------------------------------------------------------------------[


    The Shogun-mod beta 5 files:

    Due to desync problems in Multiplayer we decided to go back to the beta_5 version for the time being. If you want to join us you need these downloads:

    Either (and this is recommended) the new beta_5 installer with 11b stats, by CBR: Download here

    or

    1. The mod itself in its beta_5 version. This was uploaded November 2004
    and is the latest version. Download here
    The file is in .zip format and is 70MB large.
    It contains everything for a single player campaign. or CBR's Samurai Wars installer (older version)

    2. The Samurai Wars Multiplayer Add-On. This contains the MP stats 11b plus a working Deadpage file, needed to show corpses on the field.
    This set of stats was developed by the Multiplayer community and is said
    to provide on of the best gameplays in whole Total War. Download it here

    3. STW mappack

    Install info: The beta_5 mod files come in zip archives, except CBR's installer. These are compressed files that need decompressing. This is either done with an archiver such as WinZip or WinRar or with the build in function of XP.
    Either way you need to specify a target folder for the decompression. This should be the main folder (including the medieval_tw.exe file) of a working version of Medieval:TW/Viking Invasion. You have to accept all overwrites when asked.
    Start by decompressing the file STW_Mod_BETA5_20nov.zip then proceed with samuraiwars_11b.zip and finally stwmaps.zip.This last file needs a different target folder. Unzip into Medieval_Total war\battle\maps.
    Important note: Please use Winzip or WinRar(free) with these archives because the Windows Unzip function often produces faulty results, puts the files in an extra subfolder.


    ]-----------------------------------------------------------------------[


    Shogun Sound mod

    If you have an install of the original Shogun:Total War you can use TosaInu's music/sound-swapper to copy the music of Shogun into Medieval.
    Download it here
    It comes with its own Readme file.
    Please note that in beta_7 we switched the religion from Catholic to Orthodox. The Sound swapper hasn't been updated since. For information on how to get the correct sounds playing please post here.


    ]-----------------------------------------------------------------------[


    Multiplayer replays

    Multiplayer replay pack 1, for beta 5
    Readme for the replays:
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    These Multiplayer replays are intended to be viewed with:
    Shogun Mod beta_5 for Medieval:TW/Vi and
    Samurai Wars stats 11b

    Ulus of Orda, a map from the Multiplayer Mappack1-3.

    Players:

    Hunter_Tomisama
    MizuCBR
    MizuTosaInu
    MizuYuuki

    The .vrp replay files need to be copied into Main folder\SaveGames\Battles

    The additional required files have been added for your convenience.
    Projectiles.txt and STW_10_unit_prod.txt go into the main folder of Shogun_mod.
    smap_5.txt goes into Main folder\campmap\startpos

    (fL)_O_Ulus of Orda.inf and (fL)_O_Ulus of Orda.jjm go into Main folder\Savemaps

    I've also included the logfiles for reference.
    They're to be stored in Main folder\Logfiles


    Have Fun,

    R'as al Ghul

    October, 23rd, 2006



    When installed the mod is available in the campaign menu.
    You have to slide the bead down. The order of selectable
    campaigns is: Vikings, Early, High, Late, Samurai Wars MP, smap_7, smap_5

    If any questions remain, please don't hesitate to post here.

    Default Re: Download & Install information

    Just a bit of clarification. The Samurai Wars Installer is a self extracting installer of the STWmod which is about 40 MB. The zip version of STWmod is 70 MB. The Samurai Wars 10b is a zip file of the Samurai Wars10b unit stats, deadpage and stat swapper which should be installed after installing STWmod. Unzip this to your main MTW/VI game folder. This leaves your game with the Samurai Wars stat enabled. To switch back to regular MTW/VI stats run the STWmod.bat that you'll find in the main MTW/VI folder. Always exit the game to swap stats. This stat swapping is necessary because the game only supports a single projectiles.txt file, and that file had to be modified.

    If anything new has been added I can make a new installer? Afterall it does manage to compress the file better than when using winzip (70 mb v 40 mb) Or Ras or Barocca can do it.

    we have added nothing new to the available downloads yet,

    there is an awful lot under construction
    (actually there is a ton completed too, but the "guts" of the next update are still being made)

    I only have an hour or two a day to work on this and R'as is in the same boat,
    but every day progress is definately being made

    Cheers,

    Exclamation Re: Download & Install information

    hello, am new to the guild but have been playing total war since Shogun (I even played the board game) and own all total war games (STW-WE/MTW+VI/RTW). anyways I tried to download the file "STW_Mod_BETA5_20nov.zip" using the link but am getting a 16 KB file . I used both Flashget (GetRight) and direct download, but I have a pop-up stopper. The other files are all OK. I'm really interested in playing this .mod so if there's a problem I hope it will be corrected soon, if the problem is in the way I'm downloading it please tell me what I'm doing wrong.
    or if anybody could post a link for the Samurai Wars installer it'd be greatly appreciated
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi del Castillo,

    right-clicking and "Save as.." doesn't work.
    The file is hosted on 3D Downloads.
    You have to left-click the link to get to 3D Downloads.
    Once on their page, you click "Start Download" and this
    will open a pop-up-window (allow this). In this window
    your position in the download-queue is displayed + your estimated
    waiting time. Mine (just checked this) was 3 min.

    The link for Samurai wars is here .
    Need more info? Ask!

    Oops!

    I don't have MTW or MTW/VI.

    Then I guess no Samurai Wars for me . . .

    drisos,

    Amazon sells a combined package for under 10€.
    Affordable, isn't it?
    And it's worth it.

    Excellent! You're welcome.
    For the next version we have some additions up our sleeves.
    The whole start position situation, the titles and heirs are all gonna be changed - we've a bit too many high* generals out there.
    The Geisha as strategic piece will be added.

    Sorry for the late reply. Missed out the post.

    It's certainly worth it.

    You mean www.amazon.co.uk ? (I'll check my own link afterwards, if it's a site)

    I am only afraid the way of paying won't be possible for me. I can pay in cash, but for that I'd need to find MTW in a store.

    I'll certainly keep my eyes open or just order it somewere.

    This mod looks amazing!! I can hardly wait to play it!

    Just a question, the other eras in MTW will work except I have to run an application to switch the projectiles file? That's it?

    Default Re: Download & Install information

    That's right. You need to run the .bat file just before you load the game, if you want to switch from VI to SamMod.
    As stated above:
    To switch back to regular MTW/VI stats run the STWmod.bat that you'll find in the main MTW/VI folder. Always exit the game to swap stats. This stat swapping is necessary because the game only supports a single projectiles.txt file, and that file had to be modified.

    Any word on the new version of the mod being released? It's not nice to nag, I know, but I think this could be the best mod release all year.

    Just downloaded the mod and my jaw dropped.
    Guys, seriously, this is a piece of superb work.

    I abandoned MTW for some time and it's the mods that made me come back and start anew.
    This mod is what STW should've been in the first place.
    Many, many thanks.

    Im with Hideyoshi,

    I love the music from STW but do I really have to install the game and extract the files, surely someone has done this already
    edit: in fact Im pretty sure Ive got the files in wma format from the .com site some years ago and converted them ... I prolly still got them buried somewhere... maybe under that 7ft stack of pornos?!!!

    I seem to remember there were some minor modding that need to be done to the preferences file to get it to work ... any feedback on this please

    loved it in its early versions

    am planning on loving it some more with this updated version


    and loving it longest time No1


    B u da man

    and to the guys who re-envigorated this project... well done

    If you own the original Shogun version it shouldn't be a problem
    to copy the files from the cd into your Medieval folder. No installation needed.

    I'm quite sure that those files aren't free to distribute. I don't think
    CA has put them on their .com site, either.

    The sounds of the christian/ western factions is used in this mod.
    Go to the folder which stores the christian sounds and exchange
    the files against those from Shogun. It is required that you keep the names
    of the original Medieval files, otherwise the game can't locate them.

    This is the readme file for the sound swapper:
    Required
    -about 283 mb for a Rollbackfolder.
    -STW WE/MI install.

    Run SoundSetupSTW.bat to setup the rollback folder.
    Copy STWSoundcopySTW.bat into the STW maindirectory and run it in order to grab the
    relevant music/sound files. *
    Move the newly created STW directory into the newly made dir Sounds in this directory.
    Use SoundSwapperSTW.bat to select music.

    Japanese factions use Eurosounds.

    well Im quite sure your wrong

    because thats exactly where I got them from, the fact they no longer provide them is neither here no there, they provided them for the fans who like the music and didnt want to extract them themselves, and they were downloadable, (pls ask any STW member you like) and CA staff came onto this forum and told us how to use them to get STW music in MTW, somewhere back in the MTW mods forum i think.

    thanks for the rest of the info

    I guess I could've been more polite. I did intend no offense.
    Please understand that people ask frequently for things we cannot provide due to copyright restrictions.
    I misunderstood your request as such.
    This is because I mixed up sounds and animations.
    The animations are on the cd, the sounds are not (i.e. compressed).
    I stand corrected.

    I was looking for them to provide you with a link.
    Unfortunately, this is the only thing I can come up with.
    From http://www.archive.org:
    The version of totalwar.com from Mar 01, 2005 contains this info:

    TOTAL WAR MUSIC TO BE RELEASED
    Those of you who are big fans of the music from the Total War games should soon be able to buy special edition CD's featuring the music from Rome: TW, Medieval: TW and BAFTA award winning music from Shogun: TW. With extended versions and remixes these will be an awesome purchase for any TW fan. Any one interested should send an email here so we can contact you first, as soon they become available.
    This sounds to me as if they intended to sell the music. This would support my thesis that it wasn't free to download.
    I'm sorry, I can't provide a download source for the sounds. My folder is 240mb large and the mentioned copyright issue isn't solved.
    So, even if I intended to upload them I wouldn't know if I was allowed to.

    I think the easier and faster way is to install and delete the rest you don't need.

    So their going to start selling cd's that would explain why they took the music downloads off the .com site

    as far as what the leagality's of providing links to the music that they had provided freely in the past - I dont know - soft ground

    Tropico did this - and very successfully, but this aint tropico if you get my drift, listening to cuban regae on a saturday afternoon is a bit different to listening to RTW latin harp music - people would think you're a freeaak !! and theyd be right

    looks to me from Tosa's readme you can get alot more by using his extractor than the 4-6 music files they provided anyway.

    Guess the solution is as you say... suck it up and do the install and grab the files *looks at ceiling high stacks of pornos and sighs * there in there somewhere

    Hi again,
    Ok I used Tosa's music extractor to extract the files from STW, I now have a folder in the MTW/Sounds folder called STW, I manually copyed the sounds from STW/sounds into this folder as per the read me - but I cant seem to get the music swapper to work, Im still getting MTW sounds

    Tosa: what does the exact folder setup have to be for the MTW sounds folder, and what folder does the soundswapper have to be in to work properly cause all i get is file path not found messages

    or do i use the sound swapper from the stw folder?




    cheers

    Hi YD,

    I have to check out my own folder structure when back home.
    I do remember that the .bat file is to be started from the main Shogun folder.
    The sound folder also needs to be somewhere in the Shogun structure.
    Are you able to run .bat files properly on your machine?
    Some people need choice.com in their system32 folders.
    Here's a link to an older post from Tosa.
    I'll get back to you later.

    Ya the .bat files appear to work, maybe i installed something earlier for this purpose

    but I get a little menu asking if i want a:stw music/b:mtw
    or C:stw orders/D: mtw

    but when I click an option it attempts to find certain file paths which because of my moving stuff about manually isnt working

    so Im thinking I sort of understand now, If I set up the STW/Sounds folders as per the instructions, and leave MTW as it was - and run the swapper from the stw main directory - then maybe - Does it have to be WE/MI install or will vanilla STW install suffice?

    I will give it a try tonight

    This is what TosaInu's swapper does:

    ECHO ------------------------
    ECHO The STW Music is installed (if you've set this up correctly).
    I'll edit this later to add the folder structure info.


    Edit:
    Code:
    Medieval (Top folder)
        Sounds (1. subfolder)
            Battle (in 1.)
            [..] (diverse folders in 1.)
            Sounds (in 1.) 
            SoundSwapperSTW.bat (in 1.)
                        STW (2. subfolder) (path: Medieval/Sounds/Sounds/STW)
                            Frontend (in 2.)
                            Orders (in 2.)
                            Troops (in 2.)
                            16 div. sound files (in 2.)
    I hope this is clear!?
    Don't hesitate to ask....
    I guess you can have a slightly different structure.
    The most important thing is that the swapper finds the path.
    You could try to put the swapper in the main folder and create
    the STW folder directly under sounds (1. subfolder) without
    creating the extra sounds folder that I have. Actually I'm not sure
    why I did it the way I've done it. Ah well...at least it works

    YEEESSSSS!!!!!!


    kings to you Ras

    Put it all in the MTW sounds folder as you have set out there

    put the swapper in the sounds folder/ side note would run in the MTW main folder but not in the sounds folder/ installed the .bat executor choice.com in the system 32 folder - swapper ran

    loving that STW music



    cheers

    I'm glad we sorted that out.

    Content of SoundSetupSTW.bat:
    MD Sounds
    MD Sounds\STW
    MD Sounds\STW\Orders
    MD Sounds\STW\Troops
    MD Sounds\STW\Frontend

    MD Sounds\MTW
    MD Sounds\MTW\Orders
    MD Sounds\MTW\Troops
    MD Sounds\MTW\Frontend

    COPY ..\Sounds\Battle\Orders\Latin\*.* Sounds\MTW\Orders
    COPY ..\Sounds\Frontend\*.* Sounds\MTW\Frontend
    MD is the command for Make Directory. Normally you should run
    this .bat to create the correct folder structure.
    Now that you've proceeded otherwise you can look at the above for hints.
    I'd recommend to read the text file that comes with the swapper and you
    can also get info by right clicking the .bat's and select edit.
    They should open in notepad and you need not be a geek to understand the commands.
