Not sure if other people get the white sheen over some armors and mounts, it is rather annoying, not game breaking just a tad of an eyesore, not sure if it's my graphics card or i missed changing over a setting or not.

That´s because you chose to install the new shader. Delete mb.fx and postFX.fx from 1257AD´s folder to remove it.

I have this weird glitch

The version of my MB Warband is 1.158.

I've already checked the native and my others mods and they're fine without any bugs and I'm playing it in the "Very High" without any lag. The Anno domini too No others lags and bugs, Just this letters problem.

So any ideas?

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