Q: Why does my screen look messed up? Weird colours, lighting etc...
A: You're probably using DirectX 7 in your mount and blade setting, DirectX7 isn't supported, please use DirectX9
Q: Will you be making a low res DirectX 7 version?
A: Possibly, but probably not.
Q: When I capture a town I can't manage it, only station troops...is this a bug?
A: No, taking a town gives a 3 day cool down period that you aren't able to manage, with even longer cool-downs if you plunder the town. Please wait 3 days, town will get back to normal after that.
Q: Can I play as Arthur?
A: No, he's an NPC lord in game....but you can join, or kill him :0
Q: Can I suggest a new feature?
A: Sure, but please email them to me.
Q: Can I suggest a feature that would completely change the game entirely?
A: Sure, but don't expect I will do this if it messes with existing codes and features.
Q: I have modding experience and can make assets and modules, can I help out?
A: Absolutely, but only if you're serious.
Q: I can't find the cheat menu in camp screen
A: You need to turn on cheats first, hold ctrl and hit the ~ symbol then type cheatmenu in the dialog box and hit enter. next time you enter camp screen the cheat menu button will be viable.
Q: Why doesn't the battle size slider work?
A: You need to use the one in Mod options Via the camp screen, not the native slider.
Q: Help, dialog is frozen.
A: This should all be fixed for 1.0, but if you find this somewhere please email me so I can fix it. In the mean time hitting tab (should) get you past this trouble spot without having to shut down the game.
Q: I need a hint with one of the 13 treasures quest...who is the 'losers king was speaking of?
A: *spoiler (hint) - The Alt Cluts pretender might know.'
Q: I need a hint with one of the 13 treasures quest...where is the lost kingdom?
A: (hint) - try asking around the nearby villages for clues.... one more hint you'll need a ship to find this treasure.
Q: My save games aren't loading / become corrupted.
A: This is a fairly common issue with a lot of mods, only way to fix this look in your save game folder there is a file named last_savegame_backup.sav , change the name of this file to sg00.sav or sg01.sav or whatever number slot you want to load from. re-launch game and load the slot number you chose from above.
Q: I'm getting a lot of crashes, is there a fix for this?
A: I'm finding that a lot of the time this has to do with how you have Warband configured as many are able to play without crashes here are some tips / suggestions to try...
Do you have the latest version of Warband installed? No, then update,
Do you have load textures on demand checked? No - then check it, yes then try un-checking it - depends on your PC
Are you running on direct x 9? You need to be.
Having background programs running. (This eats up a ton of memory even if they aren't being used). Sometimes your game can crash because you run out of system resources (mainly video memory), could you try closing all other applications you have open in your background, like browsers and so on.
Ram problems? Steam may be forcing comparability mode on you. Turn that off to avoid memory issues.
Have you tried installing my latest patch? try it.
Some users have reported they need to run this mod in windowed mod, try that and see if it helps.
Still issues? Try changing your config settings in your mount and blade rgl_config.txt - this is located in your "my documents / mount and blade folder... here is some config suggestions.... they will vary for everyone depending on your PC
texture_detail = 100 # try 70 can save some resources
render_buffer_size = 15 # you can try 32,64, 128, or 256 until you get CTD. my setting, 15
max_framerate = 120 # my setting is currently 60,
