(click to show/hide)

Sorry  :lol:

But it depends on the mod and if you have the steam version or not. Steam version had different installation instructions, i had to change the name of a certain folder and do some other stuff. Surely you will find instructions from where you downloaded it or from the readme.

Crimson Tide comes with an installer, does it not? Just install it to your default Medieval II Directory after making a backup of the directory and play a test game to see if there's more blood and sand. It's not even a major mod, I used to use it with all of my mods!

Medieval II is the easiest game of the series to install mods, usually it's just throwing things in the "Mods" folder.  :wink:
The struggle itself toward the heights is enough to fill
a man's heart. One must imagine Sisyphus happy.                                                                                                                                      
Gold is for the mistress
Silver for the maid
Copper for the craftsman cunning at his trade
But iron - cold iron - is master of them all

Crimson Tide is just a dust and blood modifier, so it's really easy to install. Here's a hint: Get CRIMSON TIDE 4.2. It has installation instructions in the topic and probably has a installer too. It had an installer when I last used it. (around half a year ago). Works with all mods too.

Well I obtained the version 4.2 and these are the results:


There are particles of blood and powder but there is no blood in the body that happens did I do something badly?

That looks like a normal mod bug.

It works better in snow and on knights. Being in a snowy river helps. With lots of cannon and flying cows.

Well, already I install the mod perfectly and with lots, lots of blood...
I believe that previously one did not see the blood because the quality of textures was low, now I raised them and good results, observe:

PD:no the spots of blood are distinguished well 


sorry for my english :oops:
