Not random, but I'm not sure exactly how it works. But yes, several factions will wage war on you. Best to gather all troops in one location while building up enough troops to expand. Remember companions can be sent to faction leaders as diplomats to broker alliances/truce.
1. That's how the native combat works. That hasn't been changed. (Dead bodies don't 'soak' up hits, so you can attack through a dead person even before he has hit the ground.)
2. I don't think the strategic AI has been changed. They can certainly act stupid.
3. The sizes of the armies are to give a challenge. Enemy lords are supposed to be very strong and not attacked without allies or once a large party has been acquire.
It's all up to you. Roleplay :)
Floating trees? Are you using a graphics add-on/mod?
If the game lags/stops it might be lack of RAM or CPU power. Turn down battle size and/or graphic settings. Also see this page on optimising: Forums.taleworlds.com
There were no horse archers in 7th. century Britain :)
It's too early for Vikings (the year is 636). The closest thing are the Jutes (from Jutland, the main peninsula of Denmark). There are also Dena (Danish) Pirates, but they're not a faction.
Yes. Version 1.41 is a patch. Patches need a full version to work. So install 1.40 first and then the patch 1.41.
(Version 1.40 is a full version and requires nothing else - except Warband of course :)
Run time errors are most often caused by lack of resources (too little RAM or CPU power for example). Best advice is to turn down graphic settings and make battle size smaller.
Also, see this page on optimization:
Yes, Brytenwalda 1.41 is compatible with Warband 1.158.
There was no horse archery in 7th. century Britain.
Horses were used for skirmish and javelins were thrown from horseback.
Yes, sorry. We haven't bothered working on the custom battle feature. Very few use it. So it just happens to be a sea battle every time. We have only focused on single and multiplayer.
Let me try in French: C'est important que vous avez le version Warband correct. Ca veut dire 1.157 ou 1.158 si vous jouer Brytenwalda version 1.41.
Si vouz avez Brytenwalda 1.4 vouz avez besoins Warband 1.153
In English: You must make sure you have the right version of Warband. If you play Brytenwalda 1.41 you need Warband 1.157/1.158.
If you're playing the older 1.4 then you need Warband 1.153.
No. If you remember the name of the scene it can be fixed. If it's on a randomly generated battlefield it's probably a minor glitch.
When a companion follows you everywhere it means he/she is your bodyguard. It can be helpful if attacked by thieves in towns. It's not a bug, and happens when you have enough renown. Don't know about lords standing still...
Make sure you have Warband v 1.157 or 1.158 and Brytenwalda 1.41.
Or if you still use Brytenwalda 1.4 you need Warband v. 1.153.
If the problem continues you should try reinstalling.
Not quite sure what that is exactly, but if could well be lag. The overland map is large with 30+ factions. A huge amount of calculatons take place, and speeding up time creates lag. Best advice is to turn down graphics, which could help a little (even though the settings work well in native) - and never use the cheat 'truesight' (ctrl + T).
Thank you (although I only made the scenes and some sounds).
If you visit Taleworlds forum you can find mnany modders, and also many tutorials on modding.
Brytenwalda 1.41 Patch makes it compatible with Warband 1.157. It was the main reason for a patch.
Make sure you have Warband v. 1.157 to play Brytenwalda 1.41. Or if you're still playing Brytenwalda 1.4 make sure Warband is v. 1.153.
I don't know much about battles in woods. Would it not also be of disadvantage to archers that he enemy has plenty of cover behind trees - as opposed to an open area?
You first need very low relations with the other lord (close to minus 100). But be very aware this is something you do when you are powerful - because close to everyone will turn against you.

Yes, we're sorry about that. No sexism intended. It can just be difficult getting the female/male option in dialogue right.
Most likely you need to change the language to English: Launch Warband. Go to configuration and choose language: English.
Yes, but you need a little reputation with the faction/lord first (about 5 points I think). So do a few quests first.
(Sorry, late reply because of holiday).
It's a very graphic heavy mod and runs much slower than native. If you experience stuttering/low FPS, I suggest turning down battle size and graphic settings. If problems persist see this page with good advice:
We estimate an army size of about 200-500 troops, but larger battles would see many more - as is the case when many lords clash. Brytenwalda is for those who thing native is too easy. Build up an army slowly. Focus on alliances using diplomacy and expand slowly. You will eventually be able to lead many hundred troops.
No, version 1.4 of Brytenwalda only works with Warband version 1.153.
I just don't know how to update the mod description saying 1.132 :)
Yes it will. Remember when installing to set the installation path to: Steam/ SteamApps/ common/ mount&bladewarband/ modules/brytenwalda
