Total War: Warhammer 2


#421

That was me! So should I just give a Shameful Display to the whole thread? Hmm…


#422

As I posted above, I don’t think that works the way you want it too, unfortunately.


#423

This seems to be out now!


#424

Yeah, but its to be purchased for 0 dollars, and every single payment method is “currently unavailable”?!


#425

Do you own both? I just have a download button.


#426

Yup, I own both - the price is zero. Its just steam can’t process payment from neither mastercard nor Paypal currently.


#427

For a while I couldn’t get it because I needed to own Warhammer II. But I think the download just wasn’t really live. It downloaded fine after a few minutes.


#428

and NOW I had a download button instead - patience was apparently key - thanks guys!


#429

I just ran into this too, what’s the solution?

update: went to store page for w2 and now there’s a download free button only it doesn’t do it anything when i click on it, guess this is just from too many ppl hitting it…


#430

Aye, I think so too - it magically resolved itself for me as well :-)


#431

ok, it worked, odd, after all the gloom and doom about a huge file download unless i’m missing something this came in like 5GB


#432

Hey, guys! How much disk space will I need to apply this update?


#433

45GB of free space.

EDIT - correct answer.


#434

I am watching my drive space drop from 275 to 233 just pulling down the 5GB file, so it can patch to an alternate copy of my installation. So while the patch is small (ish) it takes a big footprint.


#435

ah, installation space was the issue not download file size, got it

didn’t pay attention to that part as i’m installing to a large drive

looks like everything went smoothly


#436

Yep, no problems here.

I do have to eat some crow though, and after re-reading @Juan_Raigada description his reply makes perfect sense to me now, but it does only need 45GB additional space for an existing installation. 85GB of total space is needed, but you are already using 45GB of that if you have it currently installed. I never went below 233GB from the 275GB I started with, and the final footprint put me at around 270GB, as I would expect.

Sorry for the confusion guys, but I’m man enough to admit when I’m wrong. This time.


#437

I wouldn’t worry about it, patching Total War games on Steam works literally the opposite way anyone would expect or want it to.

So has anyone played it yet? I started a sneaky Empire campaign. Not having the Norsca patch yet is pretty dispiriting, but the early game turn resolution times feel faster than Warhammer 1.

Edit: Oh boy did it confuse me when Karak Ziflin annexed Bastonne! Oh right, I guess that’s a thing now.


#438

I haven’t had a chance to actually play the thing, but I’m aiming to this weekend and next week with some Mario going on between there. I’m pretty excited about it, but not sure who to pick as a faction. Probably Dwarf - in WAR1 they were my favorite faction and I’ll probably have a clearer idea of how different things are with them than almost any other race. Almost for sure I’ll pick a WAR1 faction though, as I feel like if I was going to play a faction I haven’t yet from WAR2 I’d just be better off playing the Vortex campaign, right?

Maybe I should pick the Beastlords or whatever, I bought them but never even started a game as them. Hardly touched the Wood Elves for that matter.


#439

I would not have the Beastmen be the faction you play when you haven’t touched the game in a long while. They’re very different from most of the others.


#440

I really liked the Beastmen, much richer game than the Warriors of Chaos. You could also try one of the new lords, if you’ve not played them yet. Wurrzag Da Great Green Prophet and his savage orcs got me into Warhammer 1 in the first place. Clan Angrund are also cool, if you’ve got but not played that DLC.
