1. Help, the text is invisible on my MacOS!

This is a quick easy fix I discovered back in January. If a mod is using a custom font, it'll be invisible on Mac, so if you're experiencing this on other mods, you can use the same fix.

1. Navigate to your Red Wars folder in the Mount & Blade: Warband \ Modules directory. This is where we will be handling the problem.

1.2 If you use Steam, it's located somewhere else.
Steam > steamapps > workshop > content > 48700 (This is Mount & Blade) > numbered mod folder (I'll update this when the mod is on Steam).

2. Enter the Data folder in the Red Wars folder and find the FONT_DATA.XML file. This is one of the two custom font files. Delete this file.

3. Now go back to the Red Wars folder and then into the Textures folder. Here you will look for the FONT.dds file, which you will also delete. This is the second custom font file.

Once those two files are deleted, the mod's font will be reverted back to the default Mount & Blade font, which shouldn't be invisible. You can now play the mod and read text at the same time.


2. Help, my screen is constantly being covered by a blue overlay!

This is caused by the custom shaders that the mod uses. It is easily fixed by disabling Depth Effects in the game's video settings.


3. Help, my in-game mouse cursor is gone and I can't find it!

I'm not entirely sure what's causing this, but it's a quick fix. The mouse cursor works for some people, but if your cursor has run off, here's what to do.

Simply navigate to your Red Wars folder in the Mount & Blade: Warband \ Modules directory. Then go into the Textures folder and delete the cursor.dds file. This will remove the mod's custom cursor and revert back to the default Mount & Blade cursor.

Any guesses as to when you might be ready to go into beta?

When I take a personal leave from a lords army that is stationed in a town with a port, I get stuck on the port and can't move.

There's a problem with gas masks worn as gloves. When I put them on, I can still see the filter of the gas mask in first person view. I'm not sure if that was made on purpose, but I believe that it wasn't, because it's kind of annoying.

I seem to recall that the game doesn't render your head or helmet in first person, but it does render your gloves in first person. Don't know if it can be fixed without just removing that gas mask/gloves option and just using helmet versions of gas masks.

I like the mod, but for some reason, the first person camera is working oddly, for starters, when you aim from a horse, your camera sinks down into the animal, and makes aiming next to impossible, second, I can't shoot from third person, or properly aim while crouching.

Other than that, it's good! If someone has a suggestion for my problem I'd appreciate!

The camera sinks only with long ranged rifles, "snipers".

After installing the mod, I get an error message whenever I try to run the game. It says "get_object failed for texture: vaegir_flakjacket_n". I located vaegir_flakjacket_n.dds, and there does not seem like there is any obvious problem here. Any help?

Alright, I gotta problem I think, Im playing with the nords and three generals are stuck in Ayn Assuadi including marshal svinhufvud. Maybe they are trying to take a boat from the port? An other problem is when a general calls me out on a raiding campaign, they always get stuck in a town port and will end up failing the mission because they are nowehere to be seen...Im worried they are gonna be stuck in that town forever.

There is a bug with music, it gets annoying when the track keeps repeating itself, it happens with that Waffen SS, the good the bad and the ugly, and that piece of music that I can't recognize its name but it feels like "Christmas" I am afraid of deleting them, because it seems like they are supposed to play when a specific even takes place as they are named like "Vaegir victory" :Khregit victory.

Fort Dramug is underwater, literally. Tried to siege it but it somehow loads me and my troops and the enemy underwater where I can't use any of my nades. I am not sure if other fortress are also affected by this, would appreciate a fix :D

I wanted to test this “Join the Army” function, but most generals on the global map stand still, don`t patrol and don`t try to fight the enemy. There are a battles, but there are very few.

Does anyone else have the Albion lords with no banners at all? They're just riding around the map without a banner over their head.

Mod is great but it's really breaking my balls everytime you enter a Tavern there's a fight with an idiot, when switching weapon the barkeeper displays dialogue options.
Keep up the great work, I like the mod.
