New dialogs and how rank system inflluences gameplay.

Dialogs. First of all it concerns "greetings" of different groups of units. Having no neutral units (hostile to everyone), with exception of skeletons, bandits and wandering champions, the reaction of different warbands will depend on faction the player belongs to, for example:Chaos player meeting raiders:

Rank defines in what way wandering groups greet player, but that's not all. The higher player's rank the more features available in general, including unique options in dialogs. For example, Chaos player with the highrest rank will be able to join wandering zealots to his party without any limitations, which will allow him to use them as cannon fodder during sieges etc.

Another partially done feature - additional rank "Coward" for chaos player. It's main purpose is to make player's life much harder, for cowards are not to be respected by anybody. Lords will deny speaking to coward, and wandering groups will laught at him. There're some obvious ways to become a coward, like refuse to duel with anybody or flee from a battlefield.

Duels and afterlife.

Duels. Simple as it is - you can challenge every enemy lord for a duel. Providing you won and your opponent's party morale waslow enough, you can decide what to do with his army, e.g. let them go or fight them (in this case they get a severe morale debuff). For every duel won player gets quarter of his opponent renown.

If opponent's party morale is high you'll have fight them anyway, but the morale debuff won't be absent.

If you die in a duel (or in a battle or somewhere else) you'll transform in a a skeleton. At first it won't be the most intresting feature of the mod as skeleton won't be able to visit cities\villages\castles, talk to lords and do other stuff people do, but with further development it gives a great possibility to add third quest line for undead player. But for now undead player will be able to join wandering skeleton parties to his army and plunder stuff.

Could you please abandon the WSE? The .exe of the WSE system is an old version .exe. And we guys who buy new M&B Warband KEYs theseday can not use WSE because the new KEYs are not compatible on the old version .exe!

Do you mean the ConvertSerial? No, it isn't work, and I'm not bought the game from STEAM.

That is strange. Well, WSE runs some core features and scripts of the mod. I'll see what I can do. For now you can just instal the second copy of the game running 153 patch.

So a lot of mesh issues are from people not playing on 'battle' only atm, if you load with wse launcher and only host 'battles' you will have no issue on mesh.

Just tested quite a bit, I have to say I like the morale system in theory but in practice it is quite annoying, a lucky spear hit from the side while I'm fighting four swordsmen, and my chaos champion just up and closes his eyes? Gives up? I dont really get that part.

**Was thinking more sp, I suppose in a purely multiplayer battle it could be quite fun, having my own chaos warriors turn and hack me to pieces for 'running' was quite amusing in bot battle.

Buggy, but this mod is still developing ( i guess ). But chaos sounds much like from warsword conquest, and by much I mean MUCH.

Those sounds are from DoW and Mark of Chaos as I re-call. But the sounds, which are used in our mod were re-composed by TeddyBundy, and you can just compare sounds from both mods to see the difference.
