Pike Shot Campaign installation prob

Hi there,

I purchased the Campaign Bundle which should include Tercio to Salvo. I installed the Bundle, but when I try the Tercio to Salvo Skirmish I get the message: Need to install Tercio to Salvo. But the other parts of the campaign bundle work well as far as i tested them.

I tried to delete the campaign bundle to try another installation but I did not find out how to deinstall the bundle.

I tried to reinstall without deleting the bundle first but this is not working too.

Need some help please!

cheers from a german Computerdummy

Unlocking the Tercio to Salvo content

Postby JoeMiller » 08 Apr 2015 18:01
Hello all,

For all those who are having trouble unlocking the Tercio to Salvo expansion, please follow the steps below:

Firstly you must purchase the expansion and get your serial number. Please note that iPad users can purchase the content as an in-app purchase, and the content as sold on our site is only for PC/Mac users.

Then you can either download the expansion/1.04 update from the download link provided, or alternatively you need to update the game to 1.04 using the "Check for Updates" button on the autorun menu. If you are having problems with the "Check for Updates" button or with the download link, you can download the 1.04 expansion from the link below:
ftp://ftp.matrixgames.com/pub/PikeAndSh ... p-v104.zip

After having updated the game or installing the expansion, what you need to do is open the game and go to the main menu, then click "Historical". Then select Tercio to Salvo and click the tick at the bottom of the screen. Then select the first mission of this campaign. It will then ask you for your serial number. Enter your serial number and you will get a confirmation that the expansion content is unlocked.

Then enjoy the new content!

If you bought "Pike & Shot: Campaigns" on PC (it isn't available on iPad) then you do not need to activate Tercio to Salvo as it is automatically part of the package. The information that stefankollers posted applies to the old "Pike and Shot" game and not "Pike and Shot: Campaigns".

You probably need help from the dedicated tech support guys. I will draw their attention to this thread.

Hello Chris,

I'm sorry you are having problems with your game. Yes, the Campaigns game should contain all of the content, so you do not need to unlock this separately. To uninstall the game you only need to use the "uninstall" option in the Start Menu.

Are you running the game on Steam or the Standalone version? Also, on your computer, is the game installed to C:\Program Files(x86)? If so, please try the following. Uninstall the game and install the game in a different folder than C:\Program Files (x86) (for example C:\Games).
You can follow the instructions below on how to Install Games in different locations on Steam:

:cry: Hi there!

I uninstalled the whole pike and shot game. And then i tried to install it again to a different folder, but now i can not install the game at all!!! My PC allways tells me that the programm is already in use by another programm and tells me a path to a folder that does not exist.

So I reset my PC to the status when i purchased it almost 3 1/2 years ago...it took me the whole saturday to reinstall 181 window updates and some drivers like printer and so on... :twisted:

Then I tried again to install P&S but I still get the message that the programm is allready in use by that other programm....really frustrating....

Any idea what to do?

A 3rd party program seems to be interfering during the game installation, perhaps an Internet security program (like anti-virus).
Please try installing the game with Windows running in safe mode.
After having finished installing the game in safe mode, reboot your Windows normally.

For on how to boot your Windows in safe mode please check the guides presented on the link below:

Good morning!

As i already mentioned...i am a real computer dummy. I have no idea about a save windows mode? :oops:

Last night i reseted my pc again and tried to install the game before i did all the updates for windows ans all the other programms i usually use. But i did not changed the folder, because i don not want to interfer with any thiing that might go wrong. Now the game is running again. Then i installed the Campaign Package and that looked great telling me in the end that everything is fine and installed.

but when i start the game i still cannot play tercio to salvo?

Cant you just give me a new serial number to activate it?

I really dont want to experiment to much with my pc again....i am happy that he is back to work ....

I'm afraid we can only provide with a serial number for the expansion, Tercio to Salvo, if you have bought it.
Try redeeming a Steam key for Pike &Shot Campaigns and let Steam install it for you.

These are the steps needed for redeeming a Steam key:

1. Register the game serial number in your Slitherine account:

2. Once you have registered the game in your account, you can redeem a Steam serial key:
