This version is not standalone, you need to install the NTW3 version 7.5 before.
All details here: https://www.thelordz.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=138&t=16524

This patch is mostly about correcting mistakes and rebalancing gameplay from the previous version.


Campaigns
  • Minor adjustments have been made to some of the starting armies for more balanced game-play.
  • Saved games from your v75 campaigns are NOT compatible with the new v76 patch due to the updated changes.
  • Campaign db tables have been thoroughly checked and tested to remove small errors that affect game play and cause random ctd's.
  • The uniform files have been condensed for the SPC mod from the larger MP battle mod files and should result in fewer battle crashes.
  • There are a few small uniform issues that we'll be working to correct, they're listed here: http://www.mediafire.com/file/y8693fptj5tolmh/v76_SPC_known_uniform_issues.rar
  • ...please post any new uniform issues here on this thread:
  • A special thanks to Vilain de Bourg-en-Bresse for his usual help in play testing the v76 SPC mod :wink:

Naval Battles

Multiplayer gameplay changes (compared to 7.5)
  • All units cost about 10% less (if stats remain the same)
  • Musket fire: more effective at middle/long range, especially for skilled units
  • Artillery: barrage lasts five minutes
  • Artillery canister: reload slightly faster, more deadly
  • Howitzers: less expensive
  • Cavalry: less prone to trample infantry, especially when in square formation
  • Cavalry: increased speed difference between heavy / medium and light cavalry
  • Heavy cavalry : lower defense
  • Lancers: less effective


Reshaped rosters

Image Image
France 1799's and the Peninsular Coalition's infantry and cavalry rosters have been completely redone.

Image Image
France 1811's and Russia 1812's cavalry rosters have been redone.

Image
Spain 1812's infantry and cavalry rosters have been significantly improved.

Image Image
Spain 1808 and Ottomans' rosters have several new units.


A few more factions have one or two new units.
Artillery icons have been redesigned to be more easily recognizable in battle.



Unit descriptions

Russia 1807's units descriptions are all available (many thanks to MighyOwl)




Download and installation
:arrow: Be advised that your anti-virus software may want to quarantine the ntw3.exe file because its new (with little history), exclude this file from future scans so it's not removed when your anti-virus does a file scan.

The v76 release is a patch for the original v75 mod. You should have all three parts of the NTW3_v75 mod installed (setup, maps & addon) to run properly. The v76 patch will correct the startup issues for the SPC game :wink:

Я понимаю,я так и сделал,скачал патч 7.5,карты и адон. Но не смог запустить не в пар не напрямую, может быть помехой то что,в оригинале игры у меня стоят 2 обновления с самого начала,и активирован ключ,на гвардейские полки? :question: Всё взято из пар. Мод 7.6 тоже скачал. сделал как было рекомендовано,но запустить не удаётся,пишет ошибку (выполнение приложения завершено после нажатия Ctrl+C). Как-то так. Извините за длинный ответ,я пишу по русски,потом перевожу в google, английский не знаю, учил немецкий.

I understand, I did, downloaded patch 7.5, maps and adon. But I could not run directly into pairs, maybe it's a hindrance, that in the original game I have 2 updates from the very beginning, and the key is activated, on the Guards regiments? : question: Everything is taken from pairs. Mod 7.6 also downloaded. did as recommended, but can not start, writes an error (the application is completed after pressing Ctrl + C). Something like this. Sorry for the long answer, I'm writing in Russian, then translating into google, I do not know English, I learned German. :wink:

Second, I did successfully download and install 7.2
Third, I've uninstalled then made a fresh download of vanilla NTW

I've installed four files to the steamapps/common/Napolean Total War directory
When I run the shortcut, the message "cannot find Napolean.exe" occurs.
What am I forgetting or doing wrong?
Thanks~

First; make sure that you have the latest NTW3 v76 mod
Second; follow the install directions, if your vanilla NTW files are installed on a drive other than C: direct the v76 installation when prompted to do so.
Third; make sure that your anti-virus does not interfere with the ntw3.exe file, some AV's will remove it if the AV is set on high to prevent intrusions.

Yes, I have the latest 7.6 mod files.
Second, I installed the 7.5 set up file initially to the drive:/steamlibrary/steamapps/common/Napolean Total War directory; and, I checked for the shortcut file to be created.
Third, I installed the next two files (Add-on and Maps) to the same location as the first file.
Fourth, I installed the 7.6 update to the initial directory.

Is this correct?

Unit issues I've found:
- Russians still use vanilla battle flag in campaign (idk about MP) http://prntscr.com/hpaw0l
- French Belgian grenadier's flag holder is ETW http://prntscr.com/hpawh3

Hope this helps!

Very nice, infantry seems to hold itself better against cav charges, while not being invincible. Differences in cav speed are noticeable. Artillery remains a concern though as the "barrage" button feels completely useless. Couldn't you just remove it? I don't like useless stuff. (Although a well-aimed canister salvo is deadly, indeed.) I guess embedded artillery has its justification now, which perhaps is a good thing as it's supposed to be a "no rules" game after all.
The price reduction accross the board is also most welcome.

Is there a way if you can realease a different Launcher? My PC is fried up and I have to play in the laptop. But the resolution is quite low and I can't access the entire launcher. The "Historical Battles" is below the taskbar. The earlier launchers were quite fine. I'd be mighty glad if you come up with something. Really want to play the historical battles.

Thank you so much for 7.6! It runs very well for me (I could not run 7.5)! I am deeply grateful to the Lordz for this huge and magnificent set of work.

I wonder if I might comment on the musket sounds? I hear black powder weapons being discharged at my shooting club- have fired them myself, and they have a much deeper sound than that currently in use in this mod - there is no crackley component to the sound of a real musket. The musketry sounds now in place with 7.6 are too high-pitched for large bore muskets, and sound more like modern small calibre rifles - far too much high frequency filtering going on. I also notice a strong rhythmic beat to the musket fire in a battle - very regular, like percussion in a samba band, repeating over and over, driving me mad. Musket fire should sound more random.

Everything else about this mod is beyond perfect! Quite spectacular - especially modified cavalry fatigue behaviour....
