5.0 CAVEATS AND KNOWN ISSUES
- This Mod is designed to be used with Medieval II: Total War version
1.02.000. Attempting to use this Mod on any other versions will
most likely reduce stability and quality.
- Some of the subjective changes made to the original Medieval II:
Total War will not cater to all players.
- All AI scripting has been removed from Historical Battles to support their inclusion in multiplayer and to make all armies playable. This may cause extremely different AI behaviour than the vanilla historical battles in Medieval II: Total War.
- No attempt has been made to adhere to any historical accuracy in the creation of this Mod. Where subjectively appropriate, historical
accuracy may have been sacrificed for gameplay or other factors.
- Some art/text and other data created for new/unlocked features by the author of this Mod is of potentially lesser quality than much of the existing data used in Medieval II: Total War.
- Negligible game assets were created for this Mod. The majority of new assets seen in this Mod were unlocked directly from existing Medieval II: Total War game assets.
- Some unlocked factions may not have all correct audio, text and other game data.
- The front-end 'Hold Regions' win condition may not display correctly for some campaigns after returning to the front-end from a different campaign.
- Unit recruitment options are not displayed on building information scrolls if playing as the Rebels.
- The Custom Campaign Mod often generates and logs numerous ignorable errors and warnings when logging is enabled via the command line.
