Patches are small updates that allow me to address user’s requests and problems quickly without having them wait weeks for a major update.
Please note that patches are designed to prevent errors from happening, not to fix things that have already gone wrong. As such, you should always try and be up-to-date with the latest patch before playing.
You can continue existing save games with patches.
You can also find a copy of the latest default database here (last updated: 25 July 2016). This contains minor fixes like typos. Simply download, unzip, and place in your Databases \ Default folder, replacing the existing copy. TEW2016 must be closed while doing this. Please note that this will replace any changes you have made to the default data but does not impact any other mod you might have installed.
Please note that this is NOT AN INSTALLER! You do not simply run it.
1 – Download and unzip the patch.
2 – Inside you will see TEW2016.exe. Copy (or Cut) this file and go to your TEW2016 folder (normally Program Files \ GDS \ TEW2016). Use Paste to replace your existing copy. TEW2016 must be closed before you do this! If you have done it correctly then you will see the latest date and number in the taskbar when you run the game. Please be careful to note that you are replacing the actual TEW2016.exe file; some players have mistakenly replaced the desktop shortcut, which is a totally different item.
If you haven’t installed TEW 2016, you can download the main files here first:
