Description

Standalone release for Mount&Blade 1.011. Including an easier and less obtrusive install method and various enhancements. Read the included Installation Guide.


TLD 3.3 Changelog:

Swyter
 -Port to Warband.
 -New, easier and less obtrusive install method for 1.011. (Rewritten Iron Launcher into a proxy DLL with IAT hooks)
 -Optimize flying missiles to avoid fillrate issues on sieges.
 -Optimize animal meshes, better rigging for wolves, moving ears, added LODs and AO.
 -Optimize a good part of the Mordor weapon meshes, added manual LODs.
 -Add per-vertex ambient occlusion to Mirkwood helmets and shields, some Lothlorien props too.
 -Tidy up internal scripts, simplifying logic and cleaning them up.
 -Redone Iron Hills Quarry and West Emmet AI meshes so that NPCs don't get stuck.
 -Add lightweight capsule collisions to Dwarven statues, like the one amid the Iron Hills Quarry.
 -Add a new localization back-end on Transifex (Transifex.com).
 -Add finished and reviewed es_ES translation by HoJu and Swyter.
 -Add purchasable ponies to the Iron Hills Quarry merchant.
 -Manually fix border seams (visible as striped patterns on the ground) of some tiling terrain normal maps.
 -Re-encode the Bink intro video using the older audio codec so it can be played with the stock binkplay.exe instead of bundling it.

 -WB: Added flowmap shader to rivers and sea, adds directionality to water surfaces.
 -WB: Make sitting lords accessible for talk on their throne rooms. (Denethor, Thranduil, Theoden, Saruman, Gothmog, M. of Sauron)
 -WB: Fix l(e)adders not appearing in sieges, Taleworlds typo.
 -WB: Redo the loading, main, and escape menus to make them look like their 1.011 counterparts.
 -WB: Turn the module system into something dual, multi-target.
 -WB: Port mtarini shaders to Warband (windy flora/red eyes/skeleton hackery/...).
 -WB: Fix broken marshes shader in the overall map when HDR is enabled.
 -WB: Fix non-manifold collision meshes which caused Warband to crash on loading.
 -WB: Decompiled and rebuild the flora_kinds.txt for Warband, fixed some broken flags too (caused crashes on some scenes).
 -WB: Complete the rewritten animations file (module_animations_wb.py) started by GetAssista. Adds Warband animations to TLD.
 -WB: Fix gansta bows for evil races using the gun animation.
 -WB: Fix scene entry point item overriding, fixing Galadriel, Merry, Pippin and other special agents with transparent parts.
 -WB: Fix in-battle command overlay toggling. Now it can be closed.
 -WB: Fix exit of cutscenes instead of repeating in an endless loop.
 -WB: Fix division by zero when entering West Emmet castle menu.
 -WB: Fix ragdolls (skeleton_bodies.xml) with buggy possessed wobbly legs.
 -WB: Fix troop, center and faction notes not appearing in the interface.
 -WB: Add HDR shader, materials and textures to TLD skyboxes.
 -WB: Changed the lame horse mechanic to trigger randomly only when the horse starts trotting. (Fairer)

Does TLD run better on MB than with Warband? Is there any difference between playing on the two, I mean?

Swyter Feb 16 2014, 11:36am replied:

Yes, the new Warband version is considerably less polished than the 1.011 version, there's missing functionality (like lone wargs when rider falls dead) and problems, hopefully addressed in an upcoming update.

Warband is more appealing visually and has a bigger playerbase. So it's your call.

Some aspects of Warband are more optimized, some aspects of TLD are less optimized than on MnB. So, it's not a clear yes or no.

I would say that there is a difference between TLD and all the other mods. A completely new experience.
I never found a bug with M&B version which is stable and complete.
So ...

Standalone means that you don't need any other file or patch to run the mod in Mount&Blade 1.011. A mod is a mod after all.

Hey. Is it save compatible? I am having a problem with the 3.23. I have such a good game with as a woodelf, and already eliminated Gundabad, Moria, Dol Guldur and Dunlendings, but not able to attack Isengard. When loading the old save, the features of this patch doesn't seem to apply.

I don't think so. New version = new game. You can at least transfer your character.

Is there a way to increase my download speed? It is considerably low as it keeps stopping for no reason. Anyway, i'm downloading this again for warband and i hope that this will be almost as amazing as it was on original M&B! And thanks!

Read the Manual, it explains everything. In short: Yes, this release works on MnB. You just won't install the Warband compatibility patch. (for obvious reasons)

Read the changelog to see if it's worth updating, because the patch is not save compatible.

There is. Read the Manual, install the game properly. Apply performance tweaks. It's 99% probable you're doing something wrong. The remaining 1% is random custom PC related issue we're not able to influence.
