INDEX of RTW Discussion/Strategy . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Go to: INDEX of Technical Issues & Help

OVERVIEW
This thread will serve as a basic index of common issues, solutions, information, etc. for Rome: Total War (RTW). Questions and answers often exist, but can be difficult to find, esp. since RH does not have a full text search option. Posts will be linked by thread, or by direct link to a deeply buried post.

NOTES
1. Tip: use your browser's search/find function to locate relevant posts by typing Ctrl+F.
2. This Index will be updated, and will continue to be expanded, refined & tweaked.
3. If you know of a good discussion/strategy-related post or thread (even if it is another Forum), nominate by posting it in this thread with its link.
4. Reference the first applicable post # , if buried in longer threads.
5. Discuss individual thread topics within the respective thread.
6. Report errors, bad links, suggestions, etc. of existing Index content by posting in this thread.
7. When you crate a new thread, remember the Title is important in future searches for it.
8. In square brackets [ ] on this page, I sometimes will insert search keywords to help locate that topic accurately.
9. There will be certain overlap with other areas, like tech, strats, downloads, etc.; it is intentional (better useful matches as page grows).
10. Do not be bashful about suggesting your own posts; the object is to provide locatable, useful info.
11. The age of the post does not matter; however, things talking about outdated issues (like a Patch 1.1-specific strategy, for example) are not what we're trying to index.
12. Certain word combinations may seem strange; in places, things are done to help search engines crawl this thread and return external site results.

Desktop Install RTW 1.0
Install multiple versions of RTW in one drive.


To Do List:
1. Check relevancy of all links.
2. Tidy up Strategy categories.

Wow, Wartrain, really well done. This is a great list! Maybe you could do one for BI?

I've only done the first 2 of 18 pages of the Strategy section so far... I have to read (or at least scan) every post made in every thread, & make links. My next part is to do the 1st 10% of the most recent Discussion posts sometime this weekend.

Actually, with 1.5/1.6 out now, there is a 'natural break' in discussions & postings.... it looks like all RTW players will be able to use the new patches, so I'm wanting mostly the relevant information that will carry forward with time. If the 1.5/1.6 patches turn out to be 'good', then my guess is they are the last RTW/BI patches, and so discussion/strategy based on 1.5/1.6 will be good pretty much forever.

If someone wants to start on the BI section, or even post what they feel is most helpful to BI players, then all that's needed is to follow the general format and post the results here.

Quoted from MaximusDecimus:


Cavalry 1 is a dead link.


Lots are for now. Some are missing links, done do not exist. They will be fixed and added and revised; once the revision is 1.xxx and higher, then dead links should be gone.

Quoted from C Franziskus:

Done. Those are very nice. Continue to make them. The are overlooked by most people, evidently. Also, add more description in your download submission page so people know what they are, and maybe even a small screenshot. I looked at them, but I have broadband... a 500K download on a 28.8 for some people is not worth the curiosity. I use http://www.imagecave.com/ to store screenshots.


Btw: Did you get my email?


I normally don't use it too much. Too bad there are not PMs in HaevenGames!

Done. All strats and info like that will also get an author name to find it by author. If anyone spots mistakes or omissions, post (or any mods can edit the Index and correct/add, in the format pattern)


Quoted from GloryofSparta:


Nice thread, Wartrain!


Relatively easy to start, but might be more of a challenge to keep updated! I think it will be mainly up to members to post what they find useful, so it can reflect what is of the most help.

Hey! That's an idea! Why not give people 'virtual knighthoods' if they have done a great service to the community of the RTWH forums

The great service is actually the useful and varied posting by the community as a whole. Even a single well-thought-out post by a first-timer is a great service, as long as it is not lost in the big jungle of raw posts. This Index is meant, in part, to help increase the common baseline of RTW game knowledge of everyone, including lurkers and newbies, and elevate some basic recurring questions into more refined detail of tactics, strategy, and general knowledge, particularly in regards to Patch 1.5.

If anyone knows a good thread buried somewhere, or finds a good post by someone, make a post of the link in this thread so we can add it!

No, I have not linked such a thread yet. If you start one in the mod forum, link it here, and I'll add it in the index. At this time, I'm not doing the Modding forum or BI until Strat & RTW discussion & tech are done. But any useful thread posted here, I'll add to the index.
