I would start with Darthmod AND Darthmod Ultimate Commander. Darthmod keeps it similar to vanilla, but improves on things already in the game. Darthmod Ultimate Commander is an add on to Darthmod and beefs up the game to be a bigger experience....As for limited knowledge of computers, you simply have to go by trial and error. USE GOOGLE, google any question you may have. I think for anyone who is profecient in modding will tell you that having to reinstall or repair install of a game is pretty common for new modders. You just have to have patience and realize that the longer you are tinkering, the more you are learning.

I just installed the DARTH MOD 8.0 PLATINUM. So far very impressed I assume it's combined package of the two MODS U mentioned above doinwork34? to drazan: my download came with an installer & launcher so very easy to use for those of us a little less PC-learned! :)

to download DARTH MOD 8 PLATINUM in 1 BIG (2G??) file

does any one know a simple manual for using DARTH MOD 8 PLATINUM for ETW. With explanations for things like:
What is DME UPRISING mode?
What are the strategic implications of playing with/without grenades (forts etc)?
Has the in game TXT/advice been altered to reflect the changes overlaid by the MOD
Will save games play in any mode/settings the launcher sets or only the ones originally saved with?
Also I guess a list of new units/buildings etc & their values, requirments etc

I know this is a big ask but this is an EPIC MOD & it seems to have been done so well, with so much detail I'd be suprised/disapointed if this info wasn't availible.

yes i liked darthmod on facebook and he gave me good information and the download link, i aswell really enjoy darthmod the computer is sooo smart i play on very hard/very hard and evey fight is a challenge really smart computer and big armies and nice units and nice effects even small effects like smoke and stuff really make this game good

I might be imagening things but I feel that even on a higher graphic settings & with extra visual effects that the MOD is more resource efficient! ie higher frame rates, better quality image!! Glad your enjoying drazan!!!

yes i enjoy it alot,one thing that bothers me though is that both poland and united provinces didn't got many new stuff. the kingdom of poland was strong at that time and the dutch among the richest,some quality troops would be sweet. but ye graphics are sick,the al is smart(i'm smarter though xd) and every fight is a fight due to the garrisons,no more empty cities with just 2 weak citizen units like mysore for example small country but i had to kill 21000(not even a 40 unit campaign) to take it,they had 2 full armies and a quarter right next to their town xd so ye it's awesome,also the sea battles i had to fight great britain who had a 20 ship strong fleet,mostly fourth rates and some seconds. are there any submods out there that would wotk WITH darthmod? to like add even more content or units?

also,i tried the 40 unit campaign thingie,its cool to have those big armies bvut in battle i can only see 20 unbit portraits,where are the other 20? u know what i mean those unit cards where it shows portrait and the green ammo bar
SARIN_THR33 Nov 22, 2012 @ 11:29pm 
ive not played the 40unit campaign but yes we need all the unit cards.
as for sub mods thats too complicated for me :(

In the hope of making this a more general ETW MODs THREAD I just dropped this link for another Empire MOD- American Civil War or ACW. Truth be told I find the twcenter hard to navigate :(
