    So someone with more computer knowledge than I...tell me what this system error message means. Trying to launch Stainless Steel and get the CTD before the game launches.

    Really getting stupid now how tough it is to play a freaking mod.

    I know this has been posted before with no fix provided but anyway...I have tried both 'fixes' given here but neither works. Ive searched all forums and tried so many so-called fixes. Medieval Total War 2 is my favourite game of all time and its so frustrating to not be able to play it. Please help!

    you can't change how the launcher works by changing the name from "Medieval.exe" to "Kingdoms.exe"

    I use Windows 7, it doesn't work.

    Have you properly installed Third Age? When I downloaded mine they did not have extensions. If yours don't, add .exe to them, then run them to install.

    Can't find your Medieval2.exe? That's because your PC is hiding the extension. Go to your start button and change your folder options to not hide extensions.

    Any fixes to get retrofit working?

    Having played formerly Rome-TW, I began recently a campaign with Medieval II-TW ( vanilla ) in easy mode to learn it.Very nice, but –in my opinion- 2 inconvenience adults should be corrected:
    1) For the tactical Battles, the side movements of Camera horizontally or in pivot are really uncomfortable.
    2) For Campaigns, poverty of possibilities of the Diplomacy (example: how ask to another player to stop the fight with an ally ?!) and its visible lack of strategic intelligence are very crippling for a coherent evolution of the events.
    It is relatively frustrating! :#
    Thank you for improving what you will can for it. ;)

    I am trying to launch the Thera Mod, but i may have done something wrong and it says everytime i try to launch "fatal error and will now exit"
  • theogdtowntheogdtown Registered Users Posts: 1
    ok i have done both of these and every time i try to launch game of thrones total war for medieval 2 the loading screen pops up then shuts down saying its encountered an issue. how do i solve this. did i miss something?

    Sorry for being late. Your error has nothing to do with starting the mod as the mod's loading screen apparently shows up. It will be an error within the mod, maybe a faulty installation (I believe GoT is done via extraction of a compressed file?)
