HowTo / Notes

HOWTO install Deus Vult expansion or any patch

How to install game fully patched

  1. Use a traditional install CD or install the game on windows and move it over. Due to capitalization issues you might want to install all patches on windows as well, before moving it over (see below)
  2. Install the latest CK patch from the site.
  3. Install Deus Vult to an Windows PC.
  4. It will install to a separate directory from the CK directory. This directory will contain only the files that are different from the CK version.
  5. Download and apply the Latest DV patch.
  6. Copy the Deus Vult directory over to the Linux PC, and merge/overwrite those files directly into the CK directory.
  7. Clean-up name changes (See below)

You have to change capitalization on some folders when installing an upgrade.

There are problems with capitalization on directories and files such as "gfx/CoA", /map/ADJACENT.TBL and "gfx/interface" when installing a patch or upgrading from normal Crusader KIngs to Deus Vult. This might leave you with for example two folders named "coa" and "CoA", rendering the game unplayable. The fix is relatively easy, but a bit tedious:


  1. After installing a patch or the Deus Vult expansions you have to go through all the folders and find the newest ones, merging their contents into the old ones (and overwriting) and deleting them, so that there is only one folder left.

Unfortunately it's not always the same files, as different packages and patches use different names. However Deus Vult will choke on missing files, so if you've missed some you ought to be told upon starting the game.
