by the way i want LORD OF THE RING MOD! Goblins orcs etc
You've got to be kidding. :3eyes: The Total War series is all about historical accuracy. If you want goblins and orcs, go play Battle for Middle Earth.
WHy? u judge my liking? i want orcs as british army, i want Goblins as France. i want it and u have nothing to stop my WILLING.
Dont u know there is a LOTR mod for previous TOTAL WAR games?
So know u learned it. iam not the only one on this planet who wants to command armies of evil!
Empire:TW has new game engine so wanting a LOTR mod for this is good. iam sure we will see new LOTR mod too!
Wow everytime I hit start game i get CTD!! Any ideas?
Do u use SLI? i read something about(infact i read manything about CTD in steam forums) steam forums. check them mate.
heres a thread about out of memory issues if u have them
i am trying without superfetch on.
no sli here. It seems that there is a bug with nvid. 8xxx cards. Steam forum posts with ctd all have 8800 and up cards. sega just now found out about nvidia i guess.
I also am having problem with running ETW on my 9800 GX2. I have read on one of the many support forums that someone recommends the 181.22 drivers. I just downloaded them and I'm going to install them when I get home...fingers crossed, hopefully no more complete system hangups/crashes.
I'm happy to say I haven't suffered any crashes and have just completed my first long campaign as the British.
I'm sad to say this game is broken, no naval invasions means Britain cannot possibly be defeated. Take the whole of the caribbean, no one will come to take it back lol.
CA are working on a fix but until then I'm gonna shelve Empire. Hope it's fixed soon though.
i bought Medieval II: Total War from STEAM too..damn good game man..i loved it...and visuals r not bad...i wish there was a way to make it HQ visuals...
theres a broken crescent mod thats good if u want to play as the seljuks/rajputs/armenians.
turks are my favourite in medwar2. janissarys are deadly combined with horse archers and naffatun to protect your castles...
turks in etw dont seem as good..have started 4 times now as turks and fail cos i try and wipe out the georgians who are pretty tough nuts. plus the forces u have in eastern europe are pitchfork wielding peasants. dont stand up to musket firing austrian infantry well.
i am playing on very hard mind u. i will crack it. oh and dont place any soldiers in front of the organ gun! (disastrous results)
Haha lol. i will look for that MOD..And in the latest times of Ottomon Empire, Turks were abit unpowered but still defended the country with the lack of supply but just the willing. Anyway lets keep it ontopic because few racist people may start some flaming around.
On the other hand pls help me about medieval II. i want to start a new game with Turks but its not there..wtf? its locked i guess. how can i UNLOCK it? i dint Google yet but iam sure i may find..but maybe u know a shorter way
And i sitll didnt touch the EMPIRE:TW alot..just finished act 1 and no signs of Turks, if there is Turks in Grand campaign?. Or must start custom game for it?
and i will keep in mind the tip about organ gun lol . i wonder what it is :nerd: .i am noob of TW games.
Ottoman Empire. Turkey was founded after the fall of the Ottoman Empire in 1923.
hehe i dont tell my gf that i like playing as the turks. she's armenian and might not like it. shuuush!
but 2 plays as the turks/moors/etc u need to play as one of the starting nations e.g england and do a short campaign. (will take u less time). when u have won you will unlock the other nations.
theres a mod that lest u play as the mongols/papacy. but atm i would be carefull with mods. they dont like steam and i cant find a fix for a couple i tried. (u could just find a mod to unlock all the factions for medwar2..but its 50/50 as to if it works or not).
when u get bored of medwar 2 at least i can help u play broken crescent. (huge map of the middle east).
the smoke and blood mod and sound mod for etw is great. blood from musketfire...
the organ gun is awesome! and also theres a huge cannon the turks use. 64lb i think...
Thanx for great advices and informations. Pleasure to meet with u also
i will look for the things that u talk about . see u around
Well the 181.22 drivers seem to work for me...played a few battles in RTI last night no crashes or hangups requiring a restart. Those drivers seem to run rather poorly causing the game to hangup during battles every few minutes. Which is annoying when I'm trying to give my troops orders...I guess its better than having my whole system lockup...
heres some links if u get crashes....
at the moment i am using cff
if u goto open empire total war exe/file header/characteristics/can address > 2gb address space.
Just finished the Road to Independence campaign and completely annihilated the British, Iroquois and the Cherokee in the process. I had the French and Dutch as allies and everyone in theatre besides my enemies as trading partners. I ended up winning in 1802 and my treasury over the last 7 years never dipped below 20k per turn. I don't know what I did right but it's awfully hard to repeat in the Conquer the World campaign. lol
How's the learning curve on this game? I'm a married man with a youngster and time is at a premium.
i find it really boring compaired to medieval 2
+ the end turn function takes too long..... i don't want to see the movements of all the 400000000000 factions -.-" it takes like twice the time of medieval 2
naval battles are beautifull but hard to handle (nearly impossible with lots of ships)
ground battles are boring compaired to medieval 2
i don't like the new settlement management functions
loading times can get really huge
that's my opinion XD
