Disc 2 read error workaround
this fix applies to the downloaded version of mtw2. I couldnt get the game to install because It wouldnt read from disk 2. So what i did was use power iso to extract all the disk images into one directory. this is the only way to get it to read the files off of disk 2. If done right It will never ask you for disk two. This is def not a hardware issue. seems more like some sort of copy protection because i had this issue on more than one pc.
ps. does anyone know the difference in proformance with x86 and x64 machines? Im willing to go back to x86 for improved proformance in mtw2. Diehard
how much do the LG Drives cost?
Problem installing medieval 2 'gold edition'
Im attempting to install my copy of medieval 2 gold edition, however im having problem due to the destination file.
On my older copy of medieval 2 i can select my second hard disk drive 'J:' drive, however gold edition does not give me this option and will instantly attempt to install on my 'C:' drive....which doesnt have the required memory.
As i have had it installed before it is very frustrating.
Is there a way to bypass this and go straight for my J drive or should it instantly read the two as one and its a problem on my part??
Any help suggestions would be much appreciated, however try to remember i am almost computer retarded and may need things spelled out.
Thanks in advance.
Use Windows Explorer to access the files on the first Medieval 2: Total War disk. Go to the directory m2tw/disk1. There is a setup.exe file there. Double click on it. That file runs an older version of the installer that allows you to install to whatever drive you wish without running the check on the system drive.
I had the same issue as you, but when I ran that installer, I was able to install the game to a different drive. I have run the game and it works fine.
Worked a treat....cheers.
