--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
File Instructions:Here is a step by step guide to manually set up the mod.

1.) Back Up:

--Before you start, backup these three files, they will be overwritten:

A.) descr_strat.txt (located at C:\Your_Medieval2TW_Main_Folder\data\world\maps\campaign\imperial_campaign\...)
B.) events.dat (C:\Your_Medieval2TW_Main_Folder\data\sounds\...)
C.) events.idx (C:\Your_Medieval2TW_Main_Folder\data\sounds\...)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2.) File Structure:

--Inside the zip is a folder call "Unit_addon_mod_v1.3 Lite." Inside that folder is the main "Medieval2TW" folder.

--Inside the main "Medieval2TW" folder are a medieval2.cfg, a medieval2 shortcut and a folder call "data".


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
3.) What These Files Do:

--The medieval2.cfg contains the two lines:

[io]
file_first = true

--What this does is tell the game to look and use modify files on the hard disk outside the pak. This is necessary
to make the mod run.



3.) The medieval2.exe shortcut:

--This shortcut will not work for you, but serve as a reference for what you will need to do. Right click on your
original medieval2.exe and create a shortcut out of that to start the mod on your computer.

--So right click on your original medieval2.exe and choose create Shortcut.
--Now right click on your newly created shortcut and go to Properties.
--Locate "Target" line, it should tell you where your game is install, it should say something like:

(example)
C:\Your_Medieval2TW_Main_Folder\medieval2.exe

--You need to add the command @medieval2.cfg to the end of the target line so it will begin by reading
the IO command within the cfg file. You need to change the target line to this.


(example/Original target line:)
C:\Your_Medieval2TW_Main_Folder\medieval2.exe


(change it to:)
C:\Your_Medieval2TW_Main_Folder\medieval2.exe @medieval2.cfg



--Click applied and you are done. This shortcut will be use to start the mod.
--If you would like to start the mod with a .bat command prompt or by your preference.cfg, please refer
to the Alternate_IO_Switch.txt for step by step guide.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.) Data Folder:


Drag and drop the entire contents inside the data folder into your data folder. Start the mod with your shortcut.
Play the game.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5.) Removing The Mod:

--To remove the mod, simply replace the three files that you back up and delete the contents of this mod,
plus the shortcut. That's all.
