Brate, I assume it's a bug. At the beginning of every battle units are standing still by default. But they defend themselves and they CAN be ordered to charge or whatever. Cavalry usually sucks if they are just "holding position".
Honestly, Most of my battles I WANT my soldiers to stay back while I deal with most of the forces. However, they are valuable at end of the battle the most, or ALWAYS if you are siegeing the castle/city.
I'm not sure what the problem is in your case. You seem to know about commands, so I'm not sure how to help. pressing 1 calls for infantry, 2-archers 3-cavalry 4-mounted archers 0-everyone
0, f1, f3 = Everyone CHARGE!
0 f1 f1 = Everyone hold this position (lame because archers are always in front of the infantry and get rammed by the enemy infantry/cavalry)
0 f2 f4 = Everyone tighten ranks (stay closer to each other. very useful if creating choke points)
Those are the commands I use most often. And since I'm playing as Serbian vassal I can say they work. Although I try to keep my Serbian units at the end of roster because they tend to die way too easy. I put mercinaries and foreigners in the vanguard.

I think we are going to have to put up it with it as the mod author said he is not going to update anymore and the crashes are quite annoying so we either have to put up with it or stop using the mod im afraid personally I am going to stop playing the mod.

Its alright, I like the setting and the map layout, but needs more troop variations.
