On the latests version I keep getting crashes after playing for about an hour and this happened in the middle of the battle so I lost my progress. Any fix for this?

This Mod is Fantastic, the lance recuitment system really improves the battles. Have you guys considered merging the diplomacy mod in, it really helps in managing vassals.
