Would Darth's or Sinuhet's battle AI mods for Rome Total War work along with Warhammer total war?

I have no idea, is the honest answer. I think one would just have to try it and see.

Came here to congratulate devs on their great work! This is a MUCH more stable mod than the previous I tried. I had been waiting for this release with great anxiety and now I can't stop playing! Kudos!

Darth's AI battle formations mod seems to work along with it and improve the AI in battles a bit. Haven't been able to try Sinuhet's as the download links are all dead and no-one seems to respond to requests to re-up them.

Hi Jubal,
Just signed up so i could get this cool looking mod, but i'm having problems installing it. I'm at step 2 where i'm supposed to paste -mod:WHTW in the shortcut, but i get a msg where it say's it invalid. Am i doing something wrong? Guess i should mentions that i bought it off Steam, but i know you can run it outside of steam so that shouldnt be a problem...or?

Tried these:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Rome Total War Gold\RomeTW.exe"-mod:WHTW
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Rome Total War Gold\RomeTW.exe-mod:WHTW"
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Rome Total War Gold\RomeTW.exe -mod:WHTW"

Appreciate any help i can get and thanks for an awesome mod!

Edit: Just tried "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Rome Total War Gold\RomeTW.exe" -mod:WHTW and i didnt get an invalid msg, but then an error msg pops up which say's "Failed to find Steam". Seems like i cant run it outside of steam then? Help  :P

Right-click on the game in Steam, click properties, then click set launch options. Then put the -mod:WHTW in the box that appears. That should work I think, if not you'll have to wait for Jubal.

Like the final release a lot but i feel it could do with a few changes :
1) Skaven need magic user hero units as well as Stormvermin ones. They're meant to be led by Grey Seers who are powerful magic users. I was fighting them with Araby and i just massacre skaven in no time with Djinns as they have no casters of their own.
2) Lizardmen need powerful slann mages with temple guard bodyguards - good in melee and with a powerful ranged spell-casting attack
3) Lizardman Saurus and cold one rider units should have less soldiers in each unit, but they should have two hits to represent how tough they are

I'd have had slann for certain if I had a model for them, but I don't. The saurus idea is interesting certainly.

hi guys,

great game, congrats, i played the previous version and loved it, but this one doesn't seem to work. My game runs and i can play custom games, but when i choose an imperial campaign and click start (Arrow), the game goes back to the screen where you can choose between imperial campaign and custom game. And i can't click imperial campaign again. When i go back and try again i just get the same problem. So it would be great if you could help.

thanks

Did you remember to remove the previous version before putting the new one in? I'd firstly try deleting the mod's folder and re-installing.

Unfortunately uninstalling Rome still probably leaves bits of mod folders laying around in the folder, so you need to go in and manually delete all that remains before reinstalling.

Yes, what CG said.

If that doesn't work I guess next step is try opening the shortcut, adding -show_err to the end of the command line, then see if an error message appears after you cause the error and close the game. If you can get one, post the error message here.  :)

But probably there were remaining files left when you uninstalled.
