Oh man... your mod often crashes me and shows Runtime Error.

Well when I'm on world map and try to do smth like enter the city/attack enemies then I often get this crash.

Tell me, what I do wrong? It's my fault or mod isn't just stable?

It's just that you need to lower your graphics, the engine the game uses doesn't bode well with high graphics settings and poly. The modern scenes are obviously higher poly than native M&B so it may tax your processor more, just lower your graphics and then it'll work fine.

I have tested it myself and there are no errors other than if you play on high graphics settings.

It could possibly be your graphics card, mount and blade doesn't have the best capability for every type. I have 1.6 dual core and 1gb ram and I can run it.

Im also using windows 7, try one of the quick battles to see if it then works. Put everything down to bottom including shaders and stuff like that.

I've got the same config and all is ok with my M&B mods including HOTD (except the release candidate of SW Conquest but it's an other story)
Shut down Pixel Shaders and antialiasing
Set the frame rate lower than 40, it is actually enough
Set number of corpses and ragdolls to zero
And be sure that your estimated performance is > to 110%

@xPearce : thanks a lot for your great mod

Did you put the mod in the modules folder like any other mod, it does appear if you do that unless you put the module system in the modules folder.

You have surely played mount and blade mods before, just put the folder called high school of the dead in the modules folder in your M&B directory. Then it should appear and you can then play.

If you just put it into the Module folder what is the point of Iron Launcher? Lolol...I don't get it I thought modding in M&B was the same as M&B Warband....Please reply A.S.A.P

xPearse Jun 20 2013, 10:08am replied: Online

Never used iron launcher so I don't know anything about it, modding M&B is similar to warband with only slight minor differences.

Man, the game freezes on the loading screen. Everything is properly installed, but is the only mod that brings problems

Just put down your graphics settings as the mod overall features higher poly models and scenes being compared to the native game. I should add this into the read me though but I'll do that with the next update.

Not yay errors, your an idiot for trying it on warband and not M&B. Do you see it saying anywhere that the mod is for warband because I don't, it's for M&B as that's what the mod is for.

Yep an idiot.
Blame google on that part. Apparently it doesn't understand there's a difference between the two games.

Many people spell like that and everybody I know does. Well sorry but next time check out the game first as it does say warband on your game case doesn't it, a bunch of people keep giving me that error and it's just annoying.

Do you see what I mean, god people are dumb. Did you even look at the above comments before asking this, seriously it's right in your face. Let me say this again, your trying it on warband when the mod is for M&B.

Some bugs or strange things (to not say stupid things) I've found:

- Taverns (places "go to where are people") crashes sometimes in High School and similar to High School,

- Some of weapons which can be use One handed/Two handed works only as One handed (for example Electric Guitar, Pipe, etc. Katanas works correctly, don't know why),

- Browning Cygenery (I mean this rifle/carbine [?] doesn't fit well, when my character is using it, it looks like it's flying a few inches above hands,

- Guns should be more expensive, thought,

- many of weapons do this same damage but their weight, reach, price and fast are different. For example (if I remember well) Wodden sword and Electric Guitar,

- other character than normal male/female (mean black male, black female and zombies) have nothing while I'm starting new game. Lifeline has no matter, I tried many combinations and nothing works. These characters are still naked, armless and without any money.

That's all for a moment ^^

It crashes because the game overloads so just lower your graphics, don't know why they work as only either handed weapons but it should work the same as native. Guns all use the same animation so the guns may be slightly out of place but that can't stop you from enjoying the mod.

Yea I'll increase the costs for the guns, I'll look over some of the weapons in the module system as it's kinda messy to edit with everything everywhere so I may not notice things I have to change. You aren't meant to play as the other races as they were just meant for me to get the face codes to apply to certain troops. Thanks for your feedback.

I noticed today, there is a bug with night bandits and task "Train the peasants".

1) When I'm coming into city while night and night bandits are attacking me, they are Forest Bandits (from original Native) and game crashed when I killed first one.

2) When bandits coming while training the peasants, they are medieval too. I noticed Mountain Bandits, Forest Bandits (88 xp for kill one of them - mean Forest and Mountain Bandits) and normal Bandits (80 xp for kill one of them).

xPearse Jul 10 2013, 10:42am replied: Online

I changed all the alley scene obj's to the location your at so you should appear just say if your at the subway when attacked by bandits you'll appear there rather than a native city but I don't know if the latest release has that. Anyhow that's changed now so don't worry, don't know why it would crash though.

Yea I have edited the native game bandits since the latest release, I haven't edited any native quests so I probably won't change anything there.

Again your trying it on warband and if your trying it on M&B this shouldn't be happening, the mod doesn't cause any errors so it should work and it does because many others have played and given feedback.

I already added the characters and raised the prices of guns ages ago and why are you commenting on the older 1.2 version.

Just put the folder that's not the module system into your game folders modules and then play like usual.
