Feel free to post any question you like!

Here is the download link to RTH_1.2:

To install the game you need a vanilla version of Rome Total War upgraded to versions 1.3 and 1.5. Unzip the file with Win RAR and move the folder RTH into your Rome Total War folder besides the original Data folder. Do the same with the “Rome Total History mod” launcher and eventually open properties to correct the destination path. Use the launcher to start the game. It's easy.

Enjoy, and Merry Christmas!
God, Family, Baseball, Friends, Rome Total War, and Exilian. What more could I possibly need?
