Installation tutorial made by The Super Jew:

  1. Download the new version (the file name is different compared to the image below but the process is the same). 1 Extract 1
  2. Extract all the files and the folder from the RotR file wherever you want (Imperial.Splendour_Install.exe, IS_FileList.txt and the folder IS_Files) excluding the Empire Total War folder 1 Extract 2 1 Extract 3
  3. Check if the marked files/folder is extracted: 1 Extract 4
  4. Double click on the Imperial.Splendour_Install.exe file (perhaps you need to give the file admin allowance or let windows access it. If a firewall window pops up, click on further information and allow the file to be executed. No worries these are just the windows defender settings for unknown files.)

(4.1) If you have not installed JAVA Runtime the installer will ask you to install it.

  1. Follow the steps in the installer, most notably point the installer towards your "Empire Total War" folder. (NOT the "data" folder) 2 Installer 1 2 Installer 2
  2. At the end of the process, the installer asks if you want creates an Imperial Splendour shortcut on your desktop and afterwards, if you want to launch RotR 2 Installer 3 2 Installer 4
  3. To activate RotR start the launcher (basic setting is vanilla ETW) and click on "Switch", then the RotR lettering will appear 3 Launcher 1 3 Launcher 2

If it's not working please give us access to the content of your IS_Launcher.log< file. It's in the [...]\Empire Total War folder

If this leads to no solution, do the following (all files should be in the \[...]\Empire Total War\IS_Files folder. If not extract the .zip again, the files are there in the IS_Files folder):

  1. Move all ".pack" files into the \[...]\Empire Total War\data folder.
  2. Move all ".esf" ".lua" and ".tga" files into the \[...]\Empire Total War\data\campaigns\imperial_splendour folder. If the "imperial_splendour" folder doesn't exist, create one.
  3. Move the "user.empire_script.txt" file to the following folder: C:\document and setting\Users\"yourname"\AppData\Roaming\The Creative Assembly\Empire\script. If you can't find the folder, it's in a hidden folder. You have to enable "show hidden folders" in your OS.

Ave, Qvintvs. Can you please put big files download on torrent, or split them into smaller parts (just like Caesar's Gaul divided into 3 parts lol) for easier download? Thanks.

@Marcvs Mentvla I must admit that I won't do that for the anniversary beta because we're planning the full release for next month. But I can provide 1 of your proposed methods in the next release.
