iirc you can drop into the tactical battles to replace the AI controlled army.  I don't believe there is a joint campaign.

^Can you do that in ETW? I didn't think that was available until NTW.

I don't remember.  I haven't played ETW in over a year.

It has a multiplayer part and I'm pretty sure that is it.

Or it's a set battle piece that you and an opponent pick sides to battle.

I'd be up for trying a Civ IV game as well. Never played it MP.

Thanks for the mod link W8taminute, I'll try it out tonight if a get a chance..... just need to remember how Civ IV works after so much Civ V lately... :o

Hi Barthheart, it's good to see you here.  I would love to play Civ IV online with you as well.  I learned a lot during our Advanced Tactics Gold PBEM's.  You're gonna love Realism Invictus, it truly makes the game more realistic but it only works with Beyond the Sword.  Gus that might mean you would not be able to experience the mods' awesomeness. 

So here is my schedule atm:  Sunday, Wednesday, and Friday evenings are spent with MetalDog on Civ IV online.  Maybe we can expand our game to include others and make it a great experience.  We tend to play for an hour so nothing heavy duty here.  We're flexible and accommodating.  Saturday evenings would work for me too Gus.

In general I'm free for online play at 9:30PM East Coast Time.

Put me down for Dawn of War II, CiV, Shogun 2, and Empire: Total War.  Message me in advance for making a play date.


Can ETW be played online in campaign mode?  I never was clear as to whether they worked that out.

I thought I saw a section in the main menu for multiplayer, but now that I think of it you might be right.  Online Campaign mode might not exist for E:TW, just those historic battles scenarios.  Let me check that tonight.  I do have Napolean Total War though and that does indeed have an online campaign mode.

My schedule is normally Mon-Thu 7 EST to 9 EST, but this can be altered with enough notice.
Fri and Sat can usually play later... unless it's a date night then I'm busy all evening.  ;)

Good to know Barthheart thanks for the times your available.  I'll look for you on Steam, that is of course if your not out carousing!

Gus, I'll look for you on Steam Saturday night around 9:30.  Let me just double check with my commanding officer (aka The WifeTM) to make sure she hasn't planned any last minute activities.  LOL

Realism Invictus will work great with Civ IV Complete!

Downloading it now and the manual. Is it mod foldered? Do I have to disable other mods?

I am VERY much interested in a Civ IV MP with you fellows.  Friday is better than Saturday for right now.  Once the girlfriend and I get into a routine, Saturday nights will free up.  On a related note, I'm going to introduce her to Civ.  I'm HOPING she'll dig it and we can add another player, but I'm not holding my breath.
