The naval.pack (183 mb) was NOT included in the Setup file (MP battles + Campaign A files)

Lord Davn this is what I was trying to say. The naval pack in the add on is not 183 mb. Clearly not since we have re downloaded the files and reinstalled the vanilla game as well. I know that tge team is working hard, and I appreciate that. Thus, I shall wait for the patch and play MP in the mean time.

I just downloaded the Optional>>> file and installed the naval.pack to the NTW3/Campaigns/Packs folder, 183mb as shown below:
here is link to the correct naval.pack 183mb file: http://www.mediafire.com/file/g3y4484qe14cj9b/naval.pack
download and overwrite your 173mb naval.pack file or wait for the patch as you suggested.

Hello. I made an account just to report here as I don't know where else to put it. First off Thank you for the mod its great! I've had a lot of trouble with the MP campaign with friends. I discovered that the Pennisular DLC for Napoleon can cause issues with joining. My friend told me he tried to host a game, but was only getting a map with the northern part of Italy showing and two nameless factions. Meanwhile when I hosted, I got the full Europe map and all the factions. After exhausting literally every option to fix the problem, clean install and all, I checked the DLC, thinking that it might have something to do with one of us missing something. Sure enough when I disabled the Pennisular DLC and attempted to host a got a map of northern Italy. I haven't yet had a chance to test my theory, but will update as soon as I know.

EDIT: Getting the DLC solved the problem with hosting and the map but now we cant see or join each others games.

Hi,
Please check the file spcn.pack. I have removed the mod from the spc_user.script.txt file and it seems that this is the blocking issue.
To the designers of the Mod: Could you please add a link to download your spcn.pack maybe something is different?
Regards, Mirek

I think you should rather reinstall the mod, than sending the thing in parts

The MP campaign currently does not work people. They are working on it and should be released with a patch for the SP campaign soon.

Besides that, the Peninsular campaign has not been modded for NTW3, only the options that appear in the launcher work and those are all in the Europe map (1805 main, Bavarian, Württemberg, and Ottoman campaigns). The Lordz might make the Peninsular campaign at some point but probably not very soon and from what they have told me they will probably make the Egyptian campaign first, and that doesn't even make it certain that they will do any of the small campaigns.

We are consolidating the 1805 SP Campaign files to make them smaller & easier to load and run with the v75 launcher, (currently we use the very large MP uniform files). Work is almost complete and just need to do a little more testing.

The Peninsula campaign will be updated with the uniforms that Lord Uxbridge has been working on & v75 MP battle stats for the campaign battles.

Patience young Jedi :violence-swords:
The campaign game has uniform files from several different NTW3 mods (v5 - v7.5). Need to sort these out to load & run battles with less crashes.

:arrow: Logo to Steam and go to your game library.
:arrow: Right click Napoleon Total War and left click Properties (at the bottom).
:arrow: Go to Local Files and select Verify Integrity of Game Files (at the bottom).
This will take several minutes to check and restore any ntw vanilla files that are missing.

Just thought id post something I discovered incase it helps with the patch / fixing the SP.

So I installed 7.5 without uninstalling 7.2 then launch 1805 SP through the 7.5 launcher the campaign runs fine (however I am pretty sure that it is actually running the 7.2 SP campaign) even tho I am launching using 7.5 and have 7.5 installed.

To test this I uninstalled 7.2 and then launched 7.5 and it crashed same place as everyone else, when clicking campaigns of the coalition.

To double test this I reinstalled Vanilla from scratch installed 7.2 followed by 7.5 - sure enough launching single player through 7.5 works but actually took me to 7.2 SP campaign. (I'm no expert on the mod so I could be wrong).

no idea if this is useful or not.

Hi, I would just like to make a remark to the report by DukeofGotham. I did the same. Fresh vanilla +7.5 was a crash for me when clicking campaigns of the coalition like in other people's cases. Then I installed 7.2 over a fresh vanilla. Worked fine. Then installed 7.5 fine. The campaign works. As to what DukeofGotham wrote:

1. the campaign is not identical to 7.2 I see differences in ships (seems to be more differentiated with more nation-specific types?) and I see stars over guard artillery unit cards. Those were not there in 7.2.
2. Tech tree is completely different. Early techs only take a few turns now.
3. Loading screens have reverted to vanilla.
4. Very little difference, however, if any, in available rosters for playable factions.
5. Campaign crashes far more often, especially when loading battles and mid-battle. 7.2 for me was very, very stable.

So the campaign you get if you install 7.5 over 7.2 is in fact different from 7.2, but something is not quite right and I am not sure if all intended changes in fact show up in campaign or not. Perhaps campaign change was planned to not impact unit variety, and the likes.

I hope this helps to specify the situation.

thank you for the mod and all your work!

As noted in the posts above we are working on the issues with the launcher problems and battle crashes.

A log noting all the changes will accompany the v75 patch. In reply to your comments:
1.) Lord Wesley added custom warships to v75 for Denmark & Sweden. Other ships have been added to the factions in the Mediterranean as well.
. . The single stars above artillery icons note guard batteries. Two stars indicate grand batteries. Circles for Russia & Ottoman indicate special guns.

2.) The tech tree has been corrected & updated for the v75 patch along with improved graphics.

3.) The custom NTW3 loading screens took up considerable mb's and we're removed.
. . A few have been added back to the patch so you know that you're playing the mod when it's loading.

4.) Garrison militia units were added to the defensive siege forces and disband when the siege is over. A few new units have also been added.

5.) As noted we are consolidating the uniform files for the campaign game to make it more stable.
