    Default No STW MP Server? Consider Samurai Warlords!

    I've noticed an unusually large number of lurkers viewing the Sword Dojo recently. If any of you are curious about TW multiplayer combat, samurai style, and rue that there is no server for Shogun anymore, I strongly encourage you to try the Samurai Warlords mod for Medieval Total War, Viking Invasion. It provides the closest thing to STW multiplayer that you can play online now, and it's quite fun! And, the handful of players who play it are friendly, very knowledgeable about TW games, and would enjoy your courteous company.

    The challenge is, you do need MTW and the VI upgrade. Of course, you will also need to download and install the BETA8 mod, a link to which can be found in Puzz3D's signature. The mod must be installed over a clean installation of VI, version 2.01. The 2.01 patch is available from a number of places. Ask if you are having trouble finding it.

    The AI can be fun, but if you find yourself growing tired of it, and are looking for a bigger challenge, consider joining us. Personally, I love playing MP games with cool peeps. And the SamWars group is just that.

    Hope to see some of you come out of the woodwork soon.

    And to my 47Ronin m8s, who have been absent for far too long, come check this out, guys! It's a lot of fun, and the company is even better than what we enjoyed in the twilight of the MI foyer. You won't regret it!

    I second Masamune, although i think there is a fakeserver still up for STW.

    SWs MP is very nice, fun and enjoyable, i really look forward to every time.

    SWs single player is also very good due to the balanced armies and the smaller STW roster and the usual extra campaign features of MTW. The only feature that i miss is the STW atmospherics, skies and map textures. However SWs has new animations for the sprites and all the improvements of the MTW engine on the battlefield.

    SW beta 8 uses the same 60 province maps and the same map textures as STW. However, there is not a 1 to 1 correspondence between province name and a particular map as there was in STW. The battlemap is chosen based on the border type between provinces, and the direction that the attacker enters the battlefield is determined by the orientation of that border on the strategic map.

    _________Designed to match Original STW gameplay.


    Beta 8 + Beta 8.1 patch + New Maps + Sound add-on + Castles 2
