Playing NTW2 with RTW Gold from Steam

Postby Jotapi » Tue Dec 09, 2008 9:49 pm

Hello Chaps,

I bought on line Rome Total War Gold from Steam (http://store.steampowered.com/) and the game was directly installed on my PC.
Then I downloaded the NTW2 version 1 full from your site, and I installed it into the Steam file where RTW Gold was installed.
Unfortunaletly, after clicking on the NTW2 icon, the game did not load and the following message appeared: "Failed to find Steam".

This issue remained when I was connected or disconnected from Steam.

Please, I would like to ask if you could help me to fix this issue ?

Sincerely,

Jean

Shall thy valour prevail
As we greet thee again-
Hail, Liberty! Hail!

Hello, :D

Thank you very much for your answer.
I tried this, but, unfortunately, it does not work.
Please, have you other suggestions about what should be modified to run NTW2 ?

A solution to run NTW2 with RTW Gold edition from STEAM

Postby Jotapi » Fri Dec 12, 2008 1:40 pm

Hello,

I was searching for a solution to run NTWII with RTW Gold edition from STEAM.
I found the following solution: :idea:

1- Install RTW Gold edition from Steam
2- Install NTW2 version 1 Full and Patched from http://lordz.thelordz.co.uk/index.php?id=37,0,0,1,0,0 in the Rome Total War Gold file located in the Common file in the Steamapps file;
3- Right click on the Napoleonic II Total war desktop icon and choose properties;
4- In the first line of the part "Shortcut", write: "C:\Arquivos de programas\Steam\Steam.exe" -applaunch 4760
(this is in portuguese because I am living in Brazil. I think Arquivos de programas is Program files...);
5- In the second line, write "C:\Arquivos de programas\Steam\steamapps\common\rome total war gold";
6- Click "OK";

7- Click on "Steam.exe" and select "My games";
8- Right click on Rome: Total War Gold, select "Properties" and click on "Set Launch options";
9- Write -show_err -nm -enable_editor -mod:napoleonic ;
10- Click "OK" and close the window;
11- You can choose to play with Steam on line or off line choosing the options "Go online" or "Go off line" in the option "File" of Steam;

I installed the new maps and the game is running great.

Sincerely,

Jean-Pierre
