Medieval 2 Total War Campaign Map
The Goal for the Campaign is what you hope to achieve during the course of the campaign. This can be simply to win the Campaign according to the game rules (as shown for your faction). If you want a bit more of a challenge, you can decide on different rules, such as changing the win conditions and the timeframe. You can limit your play (ensure that you take out Egypt while playing the Scots for example), modify descr_strat.txt to give yourself a worse starting position, modify descr_buildings.txt to change the units you can recruit or even modify descr_unit.txt to change the stats of the units you will be fighting with. A slightly easier alternative is just to install a pre-made mod.

Having read this guide, you should hopefully have an idea of the thought process for how to work out a successful strategy for your campaigning in M2TW. This is the thought process I worked out after my first campaign in RTW, where I was going round in circles with no real strategic sense of direction. If you break the strategic problem down into steps and apply a strategy to each step, then it should work. If all else fails, make a separate save and continue the campaign four or five different times using different strategies until you find one that works. If you are working on a campaign strategy, then saving every turn to allow you to play on from any point if something goes wrong can help you to develop your strategy more effectively than restarting the campaign every time something happens.
When fighting the mythical Trojan War, why not command the legendary Achilles himself? Achilles is a mixed bag in Total War Saga: Troy, and that makes him a tricky faction to master for those unfamiliar with the game's mechanics. He starts the campaign in an unfavorable position, surrounded by less-than-friendly neighbors. Grappling with these foes simultaneously can be problematic.
Players who think controlling a European power is difficult should try leading a faction that doesn't even utilize iron. The Aztecs find themselves in a dire situation at the start of the Americas Campaign in Medieval II: Total War: Kingdoms, a DLC pack featuring a diverse selection of medieval eras.
Modifications to the map will involve files in data/world/maps/base data/world/maps/campaign/campaign_folder data/text (regions_and_settlements_names_campaign_name.txt only)
Others are:radar_map1.tga the small map that appears at bottom left corner of campaign map - Note: making this tga too large can cause a crash at 2/3rds way along loading bar.radar_map2.tga the enlarged version of the above - should be twice the size as radar_map1.tgawater_surface.tga merely affects the colouring of the sea, its size does not have to be changed with other map sizes.map_FE.tga is the default map shown in the faction selection screen if you don't have an in-game map for a factiondescr_events.txt - can trigger emergence, plague and historic events etc.descr_mercenaries.txt - controls recruitment of mercenaries descr_win_conditions.txt - defines victory conditions descr_disasters.txt - text shown when a natural disaster (eg volcano, earthquake) occurs descr_regions_and_settlement_name_lookup.txt file not used in later versions of the game.
Total War: Medieval II offers players large-scale battles across Europe during the Middle Ages, including factions from England to Egypt. It's one of the best strategy games for mobile, and today's release of the Kingdoms expansion takes the experience to new heights. Adding 24 playable factions alongside four stand-alone campaigns, it's well worth it for anyone who enjoyed the base game. We got our hands on this latest expansion to see it in action.
Arguably the most significant inclusion of the Kingdoms expansion is the addition of four new campaigns. These are tighter, region-specific campaigns that focus on flashpoints in the Middle Ages rather than the broad coverage found in the primary campaign.
The first campaign, Americas, is the most original mode to arrive. Pitting Central American nations, including the Aztecs and Mayans, against Spanish invaders and each other, this is a campaign that offers players the starkest technological differences between factions in Medieval II. Don't worry, though; it's a balanced experience for all sides.
The other three campaigns, Britannia, Crusades, and Teutonic, zoom in on areas of the core campaign map. Within these modes, players can wage war for control of the British Isles, the Holy Land, and the Holy Roman Empire. The added factions and granularity of each new campaign add depth that the core campaign lacks, although they tend to become a little repetitive. If you have a favorite faction from the core campaign, these new additions are perfect for exploring your favorite factions in a lot more depth.
Feral Interactive (the studio that has ported Total War: Medieval II to mobile) has also added a new campaign selector before the main menu to accommodate the new expansion. While it is listed under a single in-game purchase, each campaign is a separate download, which is handy if you're running out of space on your phone. The total download size of the expansion is 7.65GB, a hefty addition to the 4.3GB of the core game.
I tested the expansion on a Pixel 7 Pro and ROG Phone 6 Pro. The Pixel 7 is supported, and the ROG 6 isn't (a complete list can be found on Feral's website), but I ran into no problems with either device during regular gameplay. However, opening the Game Dashboard on the Pixel 7 Pro would occasionally cause the game to crash. Both titles held at a constant 30fps, and the campaigns loaded quickly.
While I played the mobile port of Rome: Total War back in 2018, I skipped Medieval II when it was released earlier this year. After picking up the Kingdoms expansion, I cannot recommend it enough for those who also skipped the core game. While touch controls are more or less the same as in Rome: Total War, Feral optimized them for both campaign and battle. UI elements have been reorganized for easier campaign map management, and the quicker unit selection and automatic battle slowdown for complex commands make managing units in battle easier. Add in the wealth of content of the Kingdoms expansion, and you've got a seamless mobile Total War experience that'll last you for weeks.
Overall, Total War: Medieval II - Kingdoms is a must-buy for fans of the original. Available for $6.99 via in-app purchase, it brings the total package to $22.98. It's a reasonable price, but we can only wholeheartedly recommend it for newcomers to the franchise if you're using an Android tablet. Feral has pulled out all the stops to make it a mobile-friendly experience, but Total War is best experienced on a large screen. If you already own the base game, this is one of the best purchases you can make now.
When you first enter the Eye of the Vortex campaign, you'll be faced with the campaign map. On the very top at the left are some buttons, the leftmost being the game menu. Here, we can save, load, or open the game options. The Advisor will appear from time to time to offer assistance to the player.
Play epic and strategically demanding battles with the armies of Middle-earth and their respective heroes An extensive playable campaign map featuring locations taken straight from Middle-earth lore 14 unique factions, including Gondor, Rohan, High and Silvan elves, Dwarves, Eriador, Dale, Arnor, Isengard, Mordor, Rhun, Harad, the Orcs of Gundabad and the Orcs of the Misty Mountains A great variety of units, including many famous creatures like Ents, Mumakil, Trolls, Wargs, Spiders or Sauron himself More than 25 custom settlements and famous locations
Play with all important factions of the Third Age, including Gondor, Rohan, High and Silvan Elves, Dwarves, Eriador, Dale, Isengard, Mordor, Rhun, Harad and the Orcs of the Misty Mountains. Every faction has its own strengths and weaknesses, benefits and disadvantages on the battle as well as the campaign map. Decide if you want to face your enemy with a small, but trained and heavily armored army or if you count on masses of units to overrun your foes. The unit design is based on visual references of the Lord of the rings movie trilogy, completed with fictional units and artwork, all based on the lore of Middle-earth.
3. The Gameplay The end of the Third Age is a time where good and evil wage a decisive war for the final domination of Middle-earth. Both ways, freeing the good people of Middle earth as well as bringing the world under the shadow will not be an easy task for the player. A new campaign and battle AI will make the player's life much harder and a unit recruitment based on a cultural level and a regional recruitment requires strategically decisions and will slow down your expansion if not properly planned. The AI will also receive certain bonuses like extra money or additional armies if they get in serious trouble to compensate the lack of human intelligence and the lack of income through missions.
Requirements:- TATW 3.2 is a stand-alone version and does not require any existing installations of TATW!- If you have installed a previous version of TATW (2.1 or older), it is recommended to delete the old version before installing TATW 3.2.(Note that TATW doesn't change any registry settings of your system, so you can also delete the old TATW folder "Third_Age" manually.)- TATW 3.2 requires the 'Medieval 2 - Kingdoms Expansion' and is compatible with the official patch 1.04 and 1.05. (One installed campaign of the 'Kingdoms Expansion' is enough)
