If your game crashes in some town sieges, before trying the optional patch, I recommend lowering the resolution and/or lower the corpses as this shall fix it if you have a good computer. The crashes happen due to the huge size of the towns combined with the high poly textures of environment, buildings and units equipment and it seems to happen when reinforcements keep coming adding to the corpses already in the field, so having less corpses in the battlefield shall be a huge help. This is only problematic in TOWNS sieges, in castles sieges and normal battlefield this is not an issue. Lowering resolution also helps when just visiting towns both in loading time and also to avoid crashes as it can also happen after you have visited a couple towns because this will hit your v-ram. The higher the resolution the bigger the hit on your v-ram.

- The folder PLAYER WARCRIES AND VOICE ORDERS has crusader and muslim version for voice on commands and warcries and also crusader female voice, choose the one you want and copy/paste the wav files to SoF Sounds folder and sounds.txt to SoF main folder, replace when asked. To perform a warcry press "N".
- The folder USER INTERFACE has optional muslim battle UI, if you want to change copy/paste the dds file to SoF Textures folder and replace when asked.
To make these things change automatically I would need to use WSE (Warband Script Enhancer) and although WSE make possible scripts that otherwise aren't, it also brings a lot of issues as compatibility and performance stuff and can also confuse a lot of players from what I've seen in mods using WSE. So from the start I decided to make the mod completely WSE free. The downside is that you need to change these things manually.
