Which scene specifically are you referring to? Is it one of the randomly generated field battles, or was it one of the sieges?

Ok, what kind of enemy were you fighting? Also did you do anything like increase the amount of soldiers and/or corpses beyond the game's limit?

I will need to know the specific circumstances you fought under so I can have an idea of where the crashes may be coming from.

mod American Civil War Revived Western Music Mod

We are not associated with the creator of the Western Music mod, he made that submod on his own. It's not a problem at all for us that someone wants to make a submod, but it's possible something with that submod is what is causing you problems. However since I assume it only changes the music, it should not cause crashes if done properly.

Try making a clean installation of version 1.7 and play it without the music submod. If the mod works without crashing, then you found the problem. Also make sure you are not trying to use an old save file, you need to start a new game when the mod is updated.

What I hate is when you are able to build your army up, they just keep leaving and you have to start building it up again. I realize in real life that happens but it sure does take a lot out of achieving a goal.

Yes, morale is a problem. It also has an impact on soldiers running away during field battles. Unfortunately, the only thing that can really be done is to try to improve morale through the game's mechanics with a high leadership skill, high quality food, and victories in battle with few losses to your own side. Native M&B: Warband does some very dumb things in my opinion in regards to morale, which makes having large parties difficult. There are huge penalties for things like having companions in the party, especially if they have personality clashes, and having a large party itself gives a penalty.

artillery is not yet applied in this mod,
tho it is dream of ours to include one day;
the python module system craetes the coded base for a mod,
which source for this mod was lost long ago.
It will be tedious and take a long time before a new decent source for this mod will get made, i'm sorry.

Hello. congratulations for your mod. It's very impressive. But there are some things that make the experience a little boring.
-we cannot realod our weapon while walking (but NPCs can);
-we cannot kneel to take some cover;
-some things like food are very very expensive;

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

hi & thnx for ur praise.
we did add reloading while moving and crouching but they don't work as well as supposed to. Indeed the player himself can't reload while walking, and the crouching mechanic doesn't really benefit gameplay, we'd want to have only the first rank kneel, and they/u can only get up when u switch equipped weaponry, f.i. switching to melee and back.

u probably can add crouching urself by adding 'can_crouch = 1' without the accents to the bottom of the module.ini, but the effects r urs 2 consider then.
Tho i fail to see how these would ruin ur gameplay experience.

most of the food itself should be rather cheap, except some luxury items perhaps. Some item prices have been increased to benefit the trader aspects of gameplay, to ensure players can make a bit of money, after several noted it was quite hard to do so.
Most prices, alike of arms and costumes, have been scaled down to resemble the actual cost in that period. A few dollars was a reasonable and high enough price for a firearm, f.e.

Hello, I just want to mention a few things in addition to what Matsuri5 has said.

Getting the player to reload rifles, muskets, and carbines while walking didn't seem to work, even though it works for the AI. The crouching mechanic also resulted in the player and AI becoming stuck in the crouching position. However, infantry in the Civil War didn't crouch when formed into line of battle anyway, all ranks would fire from the standing position. Skirmishers and dismounted cavalry would crouch when firing, but there isn't any way we can program only those units in the mod to crouch while the others remain standing. So, in light of the problems it causes, the inaccurate image of the history it would display, and the lack of real benefit to the gameplay, we decided to leave that feature out altogether.

Hi, I am having an issue with the mod. It started off great and I really enjoyed the mod, but now I keep crashing whenever a battle starts. Is there a way to fix this?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

sorry to hear so. Perhaps trying a new game, checking ur pc stats too.
Older or weaker systems can have trouble when the engine has to jumpstart all the models and textures and stuff that gets loaded at start of a battle.
i've had it happen that after starting a new game (after fresh game start), playing a short while, the old 'broken' save battle worked again too. U could try.

DOes it crash on some specific battles? Same enemies, same location?

I played the mod for about 30 minutes to an hour and I enjoyed the battles. but it did crash for me ;-; . I was fighting the confederates with a confederate army. it was a field battle against the army of Tennessee. I have unlimited ragdolls and 40 dead body limit. it was roughly 100 vs 80-90.

Maybe it was on my end since my pc is not that great, but since another comment mentioned crashing in battle, I thought I would mention my experience as well.

I was about to get into a melee with a flag bearer behind their lines by myself. and one of their cavalries tried to attack me. when I went to block the cav, it crashed.

Hey glad to hear you like the mod, sorry that you got a crash though. Have you tried fighting the same battle again to see if the crashes are consistent?

Hi there! When I tried to download the files. It only downloads a single .rar file and won't let me extract anything. When I put the file in the modules folder, the game acts like it doesn't exist. Where did I go wrong? Thanks

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote
King85 Author
King85

Well that's weird. Try downloading the mod again, there should be a folder inside the .rar called "The American Civil War Mod Revived", and you can just drag and drop that into your modules folder. It's possible moddb itself is having issues and for whatever reason couldn't make a connection to your computer, and lost the mod's files along the way.

If it doesn't work the next time you try to download it, try again in a day or two. It should work at some point.

Please delete all of the mod's files, make a new clean installation, and then start a new game to ensure the problem is not with either the installation or your save file.

Do you have mounted bodyguards in your party? Someone reported on discord that they were causing him crashes in battles, and once he disbanded them, there were no more crashes.

3. make batlefeilds 10x larger becuz it too smal
4. add 100000 more generals that totally fouht during the america civil war

add ta thigns so that thsi gamee not bad

I know you are joking, but just to humor you...

1. Use Warband Battle Sizer, and you can go up to 1,000 soldiers at once. You will crash though. The max you can have in one battle and have the game remain stable is ~300.

2. I wish. Most regiments wore standard issue uniforms anyway, so it's not too much of a stretch to roleplay as whatever regiment you want using generic troops.

3. Actually possible, but will probably preform terrible and will be too large a map for the amount of soldiers that will be present.

4. Would be nice to have some more generals for the Union, to be honest haha. Since the Confederates have three factions opposed to their two, it is a little unbalanced.

For future reference, please don't spam the comments here with satire. You can go on the mod's discord server and joke around. People will appreciate it more there anyway. This comment section is more for technical help and feedback.

i've read someone had plans for a bannerlord acw mod.
Probably won't be us, tho.
Bannerlord modding is way more extensive and probably complicated, and a full overhaul mod would probably take ages and tremendous amounts of work. I doubt it will ever see a wide variety of total overhaul mod choises there, but one can only hope.

If they did make a ACW mod for Bannerlord, it is basically War of Rights.

war of rights is already an exellent reenacting online mp fps.
If ever a full-fledged overhaul for bannerlord becomes reality is has the potential to be the best most thorough indepth roleplaying historic acw campaign hd-game ever, with all the factions as armies, sub factions as corps or alike, all the lords and npcs as historical figuers, but to get to that point it surely would take another ten years, lol ;)

Hey sorry to hear that. Another player has actually mentioned this bug as well, but we still are not exactly sure what the source could be. Since it doesn't seem to be a problem that is reported by many players (only one other report besides yours), I am led to believe that it might be a problem either with installation or some other user error. Are you trying to use any other programs or submods with the vanilla mod?

sry to say, probably check ur rig
older and weaker systems can have quite some trouble when the game has to kickstart all that stuff into motion at the beginning of a battle, and sometimes even during, when reinforcements spawn, when looking around too fast(it has to load what's seen on screen), and the bump can cause ctds on some systems.
Close other programs and unrequired background processes when playing, restart ur game once in a while, check ur ram,
keep graphics options, ragdolls and bodycount low,
is only some bypassing advise i can give u.
