Created by DARTH VADER with little help it aims to create a mod concerned with able tactical mad AI. DarthMod is a unique double modification for both RTW-BI. That means if you own both Rome:Total War and its expansion Barbarian Invasion, you get the chance to play 2 full modifications for them which enhance them very much in terms of gameplay and graphics.


DarthMod 8.1 was released in this thread on September 22, 2006. The latest version (v9.0.1) was released on November 19, 2012.


The mod is a complete overhaul for the vanilla Rome: Total War. It provides an enhanced AI -including unique formations for the enemy to use-, new maps and campaigns, new graphics and features, new historical battles and other changes.
