Startpos mods is going to be a series of grand campaign mods which refers to a specific place of Europe and if possible they introduce new factions. Balkan and Iberia mods ate already available. More will follow about Scandinavia, Central Europe, British Isles etc.The mod uses it's own graphical interface and modfoldering.

This is mod's main menu. From here you are able to select Balkan Mod, Iberia Mod or a Vanilla game.
Balkans have often mentioned as the gunpowder deposit of Europe. This strategic crossroad placed between East and West has produced some of the greatest civilizations but also some of the most destructive wars. The 19th century in Balkans is the era of new nations arising and perhaps of the most lethal nationalisms...

If you want to play Balkan mod just select a faction. After that user.script pop ups automatically and a cmd window prompts you to add the mod commands. When you save and close it, game starts automatically. In Napoleon's main menu click on the Balkan mod button.

To play the mod:

Be sure you have a user script in your game's script directory. If you are not sure or you do not know how to make one use this tool.

If you choose to play Balkan mod you have to add the following lines:
mod Balkan1_mod.pack;mod Balkan2_mod.pack;
If you want to play Iberia_mod you have to add the following line:
mod Iberia_mod.pack;
If you want to play Scandinavian mod you have to add the following line:
mod Scand_mod.pack;
In all cases, after saving the user script, mod starts automatically. When in Napoleon menu click on the button with mod's name.


The (attached fix - only on TWC) fix is for those and only for those that have the freezing first screen problem when Napoleon starts. Download the attached file and extract it's content in napoleon total warAutoPlaySTARTPOS_MODSDocs replacing all files. Some times you will have to edit user.script manually before start the mod, since it will not pause to do it when you run the game as it is by default. You can edit user script easily using my tool.

The FIX can be downloaded here.   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.
