The mod is great but the lag on the campaign map makes it barely playable.

any way to reduce the lag on the campaign map, just got a new power supply/graphics card so it cant be my pc.

Reply Good karma Bad karma+3 votes

you could optimize the map because my computer is very good and it runs call of duty ww2 60 fps with everything in the middle and in the mod it turns everything cool plus the map hangs a lot when I accelerate it and when I do not accelerate what I do to solve this?

After I purchased some Black Knights, I bought a ship and ported my army down to the Krom port of Taujlo. After 150 days, I now hold 2 towns and one castle. The Krom must be worried about me, because they keep petitioning me for peace. They SHOULD be worried....

I just played a little more of the mod and I am still not all that clear on how to build settlements or villages and develop said settlements.

not much is known, settlements are from Rigale
available info

I've never had any luck with building settlements yet

Could you develop villages into towns?

Having a problem with castle scenes, like in the options "take a walk around the castle" or when sieging a castle. I get the castle with huge ships stuck in the walls, and neither I nor my party can access ladders. In the siege, the game stops working, closes, and returns to the opening screen with the lady on horseback. Empire III seems to work fine, so I don't think it is my wse or M&B warband files. Any suggestions?
Love this game & just got enough renown to hire good troops for sieging, then hit this wall. I have reinstalled M&B Warband & re-downloaded Empire IV.

Apparently this problem is not at every castle. I have found it in several Swadian, Vaegirs, and Nord castles, and at least one Rhodok castle. I went to what I call Fantasy Island (Orcs, snarfs, etc.) and didn't find any problems there, although I didn't visit all castles there. I will explore further.

After some extensive traveling, I found that this problem seems to be limited to only the Swadians, Vaegirs, Rhodoks, Nords, and Khergits. I didn't visit EVERY other castle, but I took a pretty good sample of all the other factions, and found no problems. Hope this is helpful.
