(Original conversion by Grumpy, Edited and Updated by princefarzan)

1) Create a Temp folder on your hardrive.
Name this folder: RTW_DVD. This will be the name (Label) of our DVD.
NOTE: You can use any label you choose for your final DVD. This RTW_DVD folder will be our working folder for this conversion.

2) Download the Rome Total War Custom Installer from HERE and extract the contents of the RAR file to the RTW_DVD folder overwriting any files if prompted.
(Custom Installer created by princefarzan.)

Included in the RAR file are all the folders needed for this conversion.

Rome Total War:
3) Copy all the contents of the Rome Total War CD1 to the “Rome – Total War” folder.
(The “Rome – Total War” folder is included in the RAR file.)

4) From CD2 copy the three “cab” files (Loadin~1.cab, Sky.cab and ui_.cab) to the same “Rome – Total War” folder.
Also from CD2 copy the “Data” folder (it”s inside the Setup folder) to the setup folder in the same “Rome – Total War” folder.
Choose yes if prompted to overwrite. Nothing actually gets overwritten as all the files are different, just the folder names are the same.

5) From CD3 copy ALL the “cab” files to the same “Rome – Total War” folder.
And again copy the “Data” folder (again it”s in the Setup folder) to the “Setup” folder in the same “Rome – Total War” folder.
Again overwriting if prompted.

6) Download and Install “Orca” from HERE.
Once Orca is installed, Right Click the file “Rome – Total War(TM).msi” and from near the top of the menu choose “Edit with Orca”. (You may have to edit the properties of this file and untick the “read only” attribute, but as it is copied to the hardrive it is probably already edited automatically).
When opened you will see 2 window panes, go to the “Tables” one on the left and scroll down to “Media” Click on “Media” this will show you the entries in the Right pane.
Change all the entries in the “VolumeLabel” column to: Rome – Total War
Then “Save” it.

Barbarian Invasion:
1. Copy all of the files from the Barbarian Invasion CD to the “Rome – Total War – Barbarian Invasion” folder.
(The “Rome – Total War – Barbarian Invasion” folder is included in the rar file.)

Alexander:
1. Copy all of the files from the Alexander CD to the “Rome – Total War – Alexander” folder.
(The “Rome – Total War – Alexander” folder is included in the rar file.)

Cracks
NOTE: The Cracks must be inside a RAR file for the Menu buttons to work correctly!
RAR files have been supplied, they do NOT contain the cracks though, either add your Cracks to these RAR files or create new RAR”s. The RAR files MUST be named: Crack.rar.

Place the Rome Total War v1.5 Crack in the Crack.rar file in the appropriate Crack folder.
Place the Barbarian Invasion v1.6 Crack Files in the Crack.rar file in the appropriate Crack folder.
Place the Alexander v1.9 Crack Files in the Crack.rar file in the appropriate Crack folder.

Patches
Place the Rome Total War v1.3 Patch in the appropriate Patches folder.
The patch MUST be named: Rome Total War 1.3 Patch.exe
Place the Rome Total War v1.5 Patch in the appropriate Patches folder.
The patch MUST be named: Rome Total War 1.5 Patch.exe
Place the Rome Total War – Barbarian Invasion v1.6 Patch in the appropriate Patches folder.
The patch MUST be named: Rome Total War – Barbarian Invasion 1.6 Patch.exe

Burn the contents of the Temp folder to a DVD with the Label: RTW_DVD
NOTE: You can use any label you choose for your final DVD. This RTW_DVD folder will be our working folder for this conversion.
EXTRA: If/when you start the Menu and the launcher says “Demoshield is preparing to launch…” then just click the “Run Locally” Button.
