      Orphan Attachments   07/31/2018

      I have been doing some housekeeping lately and I've noticed that I had a lot of orphaned attachments. Attachments get orphaned when the PM or post is deleted without removing the attachment first. Deleting a PM or post does not delete the attachment and the file or image remain on the server. I'd like to ask all members to go through their attachments and delete any attachments you don't need anymore or those that have been orphaned. Where can I get a list of my attachments? Click on your display name in the upper right corner of the forums and pick "My Attachments" from the drop-down list. How can I tell an attachment is orphaned? If the PM has been deleted, you'll see a message like this in your attachment list: Unfortunately there is no message if the post has been deleted, so please check your old posts. We do purge old birthday threads every once in a while. Also some hosted projects have been shut down, so you may have orphaned attachments on one of those locations. Thanks!

[ETW] - Empire Total Factions 2.1 - Final

Recommended Posts

Originally written by HusserlTW @ Total War Center forum





Etf launcher



Empire: Total Factions 2

ETF is a combination of the several startpos mods that make playable all factions in Early (normal), Late and Warpath campaigns. With ETF you can play as any faction with a couple of clicks, without replacing, copying or deleting any files. Moreover the mod use it's own folder and do not overwrite any of your vanilla files. When you run ETF 2 the mod graphical user interface is appeared:


Etf options


Here you can choose to play:

1. Early Campaign with all factions playable.

2. Late Campaign with all factions playable.

3. Warpath Campaign with all factions playable including emergent.

4. Any emergent in Early or in Late Campaign (select Early or Late radio button under Emergent button and then hit Emergent).



In 2.1 version Options page has removed while a new one (emergent on Early Campaign) has been added. The content of Options has been relocated in the new menu bar of the mod added some more useful futures:

1. File: easy access of user script and preferences files, as well as save game folder.
2. AI: Enabe or Disable mod's CAI and BAI.
3. Actions: Check Files and Restore utilities. Check Files will find all files (if any) that are not vanilla or they do not belong to ETF mod. After version 2.1 no further action is being taken. If you want to remove any of these files found by utility, you have to do it manually. Restore removes any mod files (ETF only) and restores any vanilla files that have temporarily removed for running ETF. Have in mind that it wil restore any startpos and scripting files it finds in main with vanilla. Check Files and Restore Vanilla can help you with a messy game's installation.
4. More Content: Vae Victi's campaign is an early all playable campaign with some additional changes he has made to some of the minor nations making them more playable. Details here: http://www.twcenter.net/forums/showt...09#post8162209
5. Help: a general troubleshooter with some typical hep menu items.

Make sure that you install mod in your game's directory which by default is C:\Program Files (x86)Steam\steamapps\common\empire total war. If you have installed game in a different path redirect installer when the installation path screen appears, browsing your path.

Always start Steam manually and then start ETF using the desktop shortcut. Select your campaign and play. No command is needed to be added in user.empire_script.txt.


You can install mod using addremove programs of windows. If you accepted it during installation, there will be a folder created in Start Menu, named Empire Total Factions containing a uninstall link. Uninstall exe can be found in game's directory (...empire total war).

Please note that all pictures can be found in the download area.  Also, I can only give support for the most common issue e.g CTD, installation, but if I cannot answer your question then I suggest that you post it here.
