very nice mod, literally the reason i have mount and blade. love how realistic it is, like you nerfed the sheild coverage so you can get a headshot with the sheild up :). also love the skill caps so it matters more what guy you choose in the beginning giving it more replay value. one minor graphical glitch i noticed was that a skybox is errored and doesn't show up and displays a scipt error on the side of the screen. keep up the good work n_n. one last thing, i love that it is more stategic and really makes you feel like your leading troops.

Hmm, still found several (obvious) bugs, like:

Crossbows are nearly useless now, since their range is limited to 10, 20m ... woah.
You can't skill more than one level of power draw. Intentional?
Power strike seems to be limited to four levels. Intentional?

Some smaller issues, but those are -really- obvious. I don't use the crossbow that often, but I rely on my archery skills ... meh.

I don't know what you're talking about, there's nothing wrong with the range of crossbows. I have four levels of power draw, my power strike is five.

I think you should re-download the mod.

this retreat problem is really a game buster : it seems to me the archers are now scripted to position themselves in front of the infantry so when u tell the infantry to stand in front of them, like for example in a slope like the rodhoks in the original game, they lose it and start retreating. I play with the roman empire of Nicaea, dunno if it is relevant, but it's annoying as hell : i always have to deal with perfectly organised ranks of archers behind a line od infantry with either one of my own retreating to the start of the map as soon as i issue an order

I have a problem : whenever i tell my men to stand ground they always start retreating to the starting point, it's very annoying to fall back to where your infantry is supposed to be and find out they are gone

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