    Default Samurai Warlords beta 8



    Download here.

    Requirements for install:
    To install this mod you need a fresh unmodded version of Medieval:Total War + The Viking Invasion Add-On + The VI patch 2.01. (We've limited experience with the Eras and Gold versions of Medieval that also include Viking Invasion. They're supposed to be the same as the original MTW+VI Add-on. For Single Players these versions should work okay, but Multiplayers may have troubles with their CD-Keys not being recognised by Gamespy.)

    How to install:
    Download the installer and run it by double-clicking.
    (When asked for the install location (see image below), browse to your copy of Medieval:TW/VI that you intend to use.)
    (Attention: The installer may take a while to finish. Some people have reported that they thought it had frozen.
    This is not the case, it just has a lot of things to do, like deleting unnecessary files.)

    Just wait and follow the instructions until it says: "Medieval installation succesfully modified".


    After the install you'll have two additional eras: 1. "Samurai Warlords" and 2. "Samurai Wars MP".
    You need to scroll down to see them. You'll have Vikings, Early, High, Late, Samurai Warlords and Samurai Wars MP.

    ---------------------------
    Here's the link for the Samurai Warlords patch 8.1. (222k)
    Features:
    • includes the fix by Techno_Mage_of_Shadows.
    • deletes all vanilla eras for easier access
    • features a new Main Menu title, so that people can check if the patch is properly installed.
    • the unit prod is still called "MP_11_unit_prod", the old will be overwritten by the patch, the stats haven't changed

    ---------------------------
    Non required add-ons:

    TosaInu has made new large maps for the beta_8.
    They can be downloaded here
    Puzz3D has made new castles for the beta_8. They can be downloaded here

    - Geisha is included but based on Inquisitor - we don't know yet what to do with her

    How to install:

    Download the installer and run it by double-clicking.

    Great R'as, downloading now

    Does the install process clean out the map folder (there was some talk about that I think)?

    I performed a clean MTW/VI install, then the Samuari Warlords. Game opens fine, but when I go to campaign choices it still looks like MTW choices. I tried and early and its in the MTW map.

    But Warlord sounds and music.

    Did I miss a step somewhere?

    Well, some more Uesugi reports.

    I hired some mercs and retook Sado. But the Mercs cant leave the island, though I have a ship on the water and other units can come and go.

    Hey!

    I really would like to try your mod, but for some reason it crashes when I install.

    I download the installer and double click the exe.

    It unpacks and then asks where I want it to install.

    I give it a destination folder (actually not quite a clean MTW/VI install, is that the problem?)

    After I click install, it freezes up.

    Any advice? I am dying to play it!:)

    the installer actually removes some files before it installs,
    if it cannot find those files it will chuck a tantrum and crash

    As barocca said, the installer looks for the folder battle/maps to delete the old MTW maps. If it can't find that folder it won't install. It's a kind of failsafe to prevent people from installing in the wrong directory.

    Hi,
    I downloaded Samurai Warlords beta 8 from mizus.com after following your link.
    However, the installation won't run:my computer says Samurai Warlords beta 8 is not a valid win32 application (whatever that means!)
    Please can you offer me some advice. Or is there another place I can download it from?
    Thanks

    Not a Valid Win32 Application

    Possibly your virus scanner is preventing the install from running. Scan the downloaded file with your virus scanner, and see if it's reporting a virus. The file doesn't have a virus.

    You could try downloading it again since a corrupted download could cause this problem.

    There are a couple of other possibilities which seem to be related to Vista + SP1. You can read about possible fixes here in the post there by Ronnie Vernon about 3/4 of the way down the page. I'll quote the post here:

    ------------------
    Marco

    Here is another approach to resolving this problem. Perform the following.

    Clear the prefetch folder: C:\Windows\Prefetch.
    Delete all of the files in that folder, except the ReadyBoot folder.

    This article was writen for XP, but works for Vista as well.
    How to Clear the Windows Paging File at Shutdown:
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314834

    *NOTE: Clearing the page file with every shutdown will result in a slight delay when opening some programs, the first time, immediately after a reboot.

    Also, if you are using different versions of Microsoft Office on the same system, you may see this same behavior. The fix is the same.

    Check to make sure that other 'exe' files are working OK on the system. If they are experiencing the same problem, the file association for that file type may have become corrupted. If this is the case, perform the following.

    Go to the following website. You will see a box with many file extensions. Click the 'exe' box to download the file. Extract the contents of the zipped file. Double click the extracted file to merge with the registry. This will reset the EXE file association back to the default.

    Hi,
    Thanks for your advice about Samurai warlords.

    1 Virus programs can cause the problem
    (I've scanned the files and even turned off my anti virus; it makes no difference)
    2 The various things to do with .exe files I don't really understand.
    3 The download is corrupted; so try again.
    I've tried a hundred times to no avail.
    However I'm sticking with 3 as the problem for the moment for the following reasons:

    I've noticed the file size for the Samurai warlords application is very SMALL, much smaller than other installers I've downloaded. (and I've downloaded many MTW mods). Either it's a 50kb file and I get "not a win32 application" or its a 0kb file that will not execute nor delete. Now, I'm no computer genius but this sounds to me like corrupted or incomplete download.

    Anyway, I'm sure I've bored you to death with this by now, but perhaps you could help me to solve this problem. You have Samurai warlords, so I was wondering if you could check its file size for me - if its much larger than what I'm getting then I must have an incomplete or corrupted download.

    Also, as I've downloaded this prog to no avail endless times, I was wondering if you could attach your Samurai warlords to an email and send it to me. That way I should get an uncorrupted version.

    Many thanks!!!!

    Samurai Warlords Beta 8's installer should be around ~120 MB.
    As you've said that you've tried numerous times to download it, might I suggest getting a download manager for a more reliable download. Something like Free Download Manager would be perfect... if that doesn't work... hmm, well, try again.

    I'm a but confused!

    - I did a fresh install of MTW, patched to 2.1
    - downloaded beta8 + beta8all-in-one
    - installed mod and the all-in-one
    now the menu says BETA5, and I have some issues: the new clans have odd error names, and the game keeps crashing every few turns.

    have I done something wrong?

    Many thanks

    EDIT: Oops. I see now it says beta'5' all in one. I'' reapply the beta8., and get the 8.1 patch seperately and try again.
    Not sure why you'r still making Beta5 available... But never mind. Just me being stupid here.

    Looks good :D
    Are you the guys doing the shogun mod for RTW? I'm quite lookinf forward to that one. I hate MTW's incapacity to remember unit grouping, and it's random battle-maps. But still, thanks for this mod, it must have been a lot of hard work and frustration.

    many thanks :)

    well, that didn't work. Still CTD every few turns.
    I'll try a completely fresh install. - I'm on the Viking invasion gold version -v2.0. Might try the 2.1 patch too.

    That didn't work either.
    I've tried saving between every move - that worked or a while, but there's one move it wont get past. Three messengers converge on one province then CTD - every time.

    Oh well. Worth a try a least.

    There are people using this mod successfully with MTW/VI Gold. I don't have that version myself. The Gold version should already be at v2.1 eventhough it indicates v2.0 since it came out after the v2.1 patch. The v2.1 patch is a replacement for the main .exe file not a patch that you run. If you apply the v2.1 to the Gold version, make sure the regular MTW/VI works before going on to install Samurai Warlords.

    The mod has to be applied to an unmodified MTW/VI v2.1, and you have to follow this sequence when installing:
    MTW + VI + v2.1 + SW beta 8 + SW beta 8.1.

    You can get the beta 8 and beta 8.1 from the links in my sig. You have to provide the SW beta installers with the path to your main MTW/VI folder.

    Thanks for the reply.
    I tried again.
    - Fresh install v2.0 - no probs for about 15 turns.
    - Added the 2.01 exe - no probs for about 15 turns.
    - installed SW v8.0 - CTD after about 5 turns.
    - installed SW patch v8.1 - CTD after about 5 turns. (although the CTD turn is variable, from 2 turns upto about 7).

    I tried changing all kinds of options. Still CTDs.

    I don;t suppose there's any form of debug ouput. or trace logging for MTW?

    Do you see v2.01 in the upper left corner of the menu screen with the red scrolling backround, and Samurai Warlords Beta 8 + MP 8.1 at the top of the menu?

    There is an error.log in the game's main folder. I get one error entry there which doesn't seem to cause any problems:

    Errors for session started: Sat Apr 11 11:54:19 2009

    C:\Source\VikingsPatch\Crusaders_TW\main3d_1.cpp(1929) : DirectX call : DDERR_SURFACELOST



    After choosing Single Player and New Campaign and Difficulty Level, you should see two campaign choices: Samural Warlords and Samurai Wars MP. Choose Samurai Warlords and Contiune, and you should then have a choice of one of 24 clans before hitting Start Campaign.

    Thank you to everyone who worked on this mod. I just installed it and you have done some brilliant and generous work here. May you all enjoy mountains of good karma.

    I was looking in the unit prod and build prod files - I am new to modding this game but I am a software developer by trade - to work out whether certain buildings are only available to certain clans, and if that behavior is editable in some type of text file. In my first campaign I am unable to access any level of Horse dojo other than the first, despite having built a Citadel in the province.

    What factors other than the technology tree control which clan is able to build a building?

    Thank you in advance for any advice to a newcomer.

    Best regards

    Here is a download link for the tech tree provided by Dale which shows the prerequisites for buildings:
