Maybe with Retrofit mod enabled? I really don't know if the Retrofit mod changes any things in the Americas campaign..

I would like it to give it a go if there are some more rules enabled.

Like autoresolve?

I think that the Retrofit mod will cause an error if some1 does not have him but plz tell me what version you have and i will install him to.

i'm fine with autoresolve battle it does not really matter me.

if you want to join what faction would you ike to be?
and what is your e-mail?

According to this site (on another forum) the Retrofit also improves the different Kingdom campaigns with AI improvements on the campaign map etc. I donīt know if this is the case in the Americas campaign, because it seems that I canīt start the Americas campaign in Retrofit mode..

I have never played the Americas campaign before so I just would have to choose a faction based on my level of historical knowledge. Really like the Indians so I would like to choose the Apaches.

And what about the French? I read somewhere that they will pop up after turn 20. Can a human control them? Also, what will the required MTW2 version be? I guess 1.05, but make sure to put it in the requirements for this hotseat.

ok then no mods, you can't play with the french so you will be the apachians.
i don't know yet when we can start because i don't know when the 2 more players will come we will need.
i found your email so i will contact you when we start. or when there is anything you'll need to know
my version is 1,04 and it's working perfect. but if everyone just installs 1,05 you will be sure that can't cause an error
in what difficulty shall we play the game? Medium or Hard?

Unfortunately I haven't really got the spare time to commit to another hotseat - but I do suggest you set up the hotseat with an admin password. It's a smallish change but would give you the ability to reset passwords and add/remove human control from factions.

I can dig out the instructions on how to set an admin if you'd like.

My preference for the difficulty will be M/M, because with autoresolve on this will be balanced enough. With H/H and fighting Spain for example it is really hard to win in autoresolve.

yes i agree and it's also not really fighting against AI but more versus the human players

Actually, I can join, but I first want to hear from someone who used the patch download, to make sure, it's safe and works. If it makes a difference, I did unpack the files(but not modded).I'm also intresting if that installing that patch, adds the 1.03 patch to the main campaign.

As for the game itself, I'll play as the Mayans.

I'll give you my email as soon as I get the patch.

Does it matter where I save it to, when prompted to save? I really don't know(never downloaded before). And after it's downloaded, how do I apply it?

Forgive me, just not experianced in "techy" things...

OK a easy guide here:

1. When downloaded unpack the files with WinRAR doesn't matter where.
2. then go to the unpacked file and go to Kingdoms_Patch_US\GOLD_RC02_Kingdoms_Patch_46_US\Disk1\
3. then run the setup, there everything will be easy

Good luck!

btw I hope you know how hotseat works?
and can I get your E-mail

I'm willing to hold a copy of passwords if you'd like (although that's less important if you've got a game admin password setup).

On the patch front, make sure you download the correct version of the patch based on the version of your game (there should be a list here - http://segauk.epticahosting.com/selfsegauk/template.do?id=3117 - if the link works). Players with the UK Gold edition would get an error at some point if trying to install the US Gold edition, similarly with some European versions.

Alright, I downloaded the patch, but how do I unpack it, and/or where do I find WinRar, I'm using Windows 7 if that makes a difference.

My Email is kilij45@gmail.com

Yes, I know how to hotseat, just email save file to next player, and I know where to find it too. Patching is my only problem...

You need something that can open .rar files (examples are given at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RAR) Winrar is the main example of that and you should be able to download at least a trial version for free - just search for it on google or your preferred internet search tool. Winzip also works if you'd prefer that or http://www.7-zip.org/

With one of those programs installed it ought to just come down to clicking on the rar file and choosing 'extract'.

Same here, but I found the stickied guide to be helpful. From what it says, when you finish your turn(hence press end turn button), it will take you the login screen for the next player, you then save the game, and email it to that player.

I'm sure the mods can give you a better explaination.
