Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Will you add faction X ?
A: We're not making any promises concerning upcoming factions, we follow our planning and eventually new factions are done.

Q: Will you add X item ?
A: If it fits our time frame then we will most likely add it as long as it is relevant, if it doesn't then we won't.
Items we won't do:
- Square Scutums
- Segmentata
- Corinthian Helmet
Stop requesting these please.

Q: Faction X is so OP/UP (overpowered/underpowered)!!!
A: That's not a question. Also we tested everything against everything in multiplayer a dozen times already and as far as I'm concerned it's relatively balanced. It seems to work decently in SP too so if all you have is one random empiric occurrence where you got your ass handed to you that won't be convincing of a faulty balance.

Q: Is the mod dead?
A: No.

Other things worth mentioning:
We do our own research so please be so kind to not point towards Rome II as a historical reference, we appreciate actual history books and physical evidence over movies/videogames. We do have a planning for what we are doing (most of the time) so there is no point in suggesting to us what our next move shall be. Thank you for reading the F.A.Q. and twice the thanks for reading the F.A.Q. before posting a question already answered in it.

A lot of helmets removed? Which ones? For the most part a whole bunch of helmets were added, for the Hellenistic factions the Phrygian helmet replaced some of the Pylos variations but the helmets are still used elsewhere. All I can think of would be the Illyrian helmet that is used by some Epeirote officer classes still until Pyrrhus's helmet is done but then again, still there.
If there is something we don't lack, it's helmets.

Plans for the moment are to make a patch to fix some minor bugs and add some stuff that wasn't finished for the release.

I could play 2.4 fine but now when i try and join a multiplayer server the game says it cannot load certain textures. So some models will then be black un-textured. Then it crashes and says this. If you could help me out it'd be great.

Could be a corrupted download or could be a lack of RAM memory, try re-downloading and if it doesn't work send me the details of the crash log (rgl_log.txt located in the main warband folder, the one with the executable).
