INSTALLATION

- Install MTW II
- Install Kingdoms
Ě IMPORTANT: Make sure there is no old SicilianVespers folder in your Medieval II Total War folder before attempting to install (Uninstall or Delete them)
Ě Not save compatible with SV 2.5 or earlier versions
Ě Your original M2TW files will not be changed, SV 3.0 creates a seperate installation path which includes nearly all changed files: except a necessary new small folder SicilianVespers in the standard data path, and the vanilla .SD files in data\ui.
Ě Execute file SicilianVespers_3.0_Install.exe and enter the correct path for the installation
Example: C:\Program Files\SEGA\Medieval II Total War
Ě The automatic setup creates a desktop icon and an uninstall option
- To start the game doubleclick
on the The Chivalry II desktop icon
or the Launch_SicilianVespers.bat in the path C:\Program Files\SEGA\Medieval II Total War (default path...you may have changed this to your custom path during installation)


THE SICILIAN VESPERS LAUNCHER

- The "Era Selection" menu is used to prepare the game files for whichever era you are playing in.
- You should use these option until a "Dynamic" event occurs.

- *** SELECT MENU OPTION 1 ON THE IN-GAME EVENT SELECTION MENU WHEN STARTING MIITW. ***

- The "In-Game Event Selection" menu should be used when an in-game event instructs you to do so.
- These "Dynamic" events allow us to change faction names based historic events.
