No stress playing of Empire Tacticl Warefare, "instructions"

Postby DougieJ » Mon Aug 03, 2009 3:32 pm

Hello Napoleonic gamers,

Are you tired with ETW on line ?? a very poor representation of Napoleonic style battles we love to play.

Well theres is an alternative its now called “”EMPIRE TACTICAL WARFARE”” previously “”NAPOLEONIC BATTLES GROG MOD””

I'm certain you guys will now find this mod a massive improvement on Vanilla ETW, so please come and join us at the Commanders at war (CAW) steam chatroom (best times being after 2000hrs GMT)

Heres the best thing,
There will be no changes to the mod version we are playing GUARANTEED before September the first and possibly beyond, therefore if you decide to download and give it a try there will be no compatibility problems to spoil our enjoyment, you can come to the CAW chat lobby for at least 4 weeks safe in the knowledge we are all playing the same game.

Look forward to seeing you,

Here are the complicated looking but really very simple instructions to ensure all runs smoothly and all required links.

Happy gaming to you all.

1a. Make your Empire Total War the STANDARD IN THE BOX “VANILLA” version, it must not contain ANYTHING other than the standard version files - nothing else.
1b. Go to your Documents and Settings\%username%\Application Data\The Creative Assembly\Empire\scripts folder and check there is only ONE file in there, the preferences file, it's full name is preferences.empire_script.txt, if there are ANY other files they MUST be deleted.
2a. Go to steam/my games and right click on EmpireTW….use the “properties/update” tab to ALWAYS KEEP THIS GAME UPTO DATE.
2b. Use the “local files” tab to VERFILY INTEGITY OF GAME CACHE.
3. Go to the FILE tab (top left of screen) and check for steam updates.
4.Exit steam.
5.Download the mod files and put them into your Empire data folder as per the instructions on the first page of the mod.
6a.Download, and install into the data folder, the Lordz map pack .
6b.If you already have the Lordz map pack you will need to delete your current Lordz map pack Loc. File
7.Unlike previous versions of this mod there is “NO NEED” to remove your patch.pack from data.
8.Download the Modmanager (link below)
When you have downloaded Modmanager and run it, if you done all correctly you should see “zEmpire TacWar” in the left hand corner, tick the box next to it and launch the game from the right hand side of Modmanager, the game will not work if launched from steam you must do it in Modmanager.

Does this mod have the over-powered mass-blob-melee-grognard-frenchies everyone loved so dearly in NTW2?

Well you can still make some pretty nice battalion assault columns and charge them into enemy lines ! :-)

Mate, it's far far from ntw2 charges, you can charge, but at your own risks...
Just try it out, instead of relying on some other peoples opinion ! :wink:

From the graves of our slain
Shall thy valour prevail
As we greet thee again-
Hail, Liberty! Hail!

Lib is correct, blobs no , :biggrin:
Mass charges in this game will seldom lead to victory, this is a all about manoeuvre, attack and counter attack, mêlée is a very risky business but can work out in very favourable circumstances.

Most of us playing very much favour the musket ball over the bayonet type of games,
You will only truly find out if you give it a try :wink:

I've had the pleasure to NOT see any "blobs" yet, but that does not mean someone can not make a blob if that's what they like, it could work, but it won't be as easy to do as it was in ntw2 - I'm pleased to say !.

Yup, Moon had done very well here, there were a few dogey versions before this one as things were changed but this week has seen the best MP games I've ever taken part in, in about 3 years now......my only worry is can he keep changing it and making it BETTER without "breaking" it.....I'd be happy if this was the final version, oh, after the Cav moral is raised a tiny amount, which Moon is planning on doing, with some other stuff as well.
