I am still working. I expect to have more spare time the last few weeks of May to complete this version.

The patch wouldn't be save-game compatible. I will be expanding the custom troops somewhat in version 3.

Thanks for the support. I don't think I am ready for coding job anytime soon!

I use windowed mode and get a little bit better performance than in non-windowed mode. What is your battle size set to?

Good luck. I have an older PC and keep my framerate between 30-60 in battles. I have my battle size set to 150, so it's the default level. Compared to larger mods with bigger maps, mine runs faster and more smoothly on my PC.

Are you sure you installed it properly into the Modules folder? What settings are you using?

It's hard to say. I have had little time to work on it the last month. I anticipate release sometime near end of April or early May. It depends on whether I decide to add all the new features or cut back on some of them.

It is usually better to enable "load textures on demand."

My old PC gives me between 35 and 60 FPS in battles with battle size of 150. From my experience my mod is less CPU and memory intensive than many of the larger mods. Of course I have the graphics settings and other settings optimized for my system.

I have never had a player complain about lag. I have added quite a few resources and textures, but most of them should be optimized with LODS, reduced texture sizes for some of the larger textures, etc.

My mod is based on Diplomacy 4.2 and PBOD .92 and runs at only slightly fewer FPS than the vanilla Diplomacy 4.2 + PBOD mod but with more resources and textures. I very occasionally get some lag fighting in steppe forests but nowhere near as low as 4 fps. Believe me, I wouldn't be working on version 3 of this mod if other players weren't enjoying the experience.

I did mod this aspect and gave the player a month to rejoin the lord. I think the original code was for 2 weeks. I will consider extending the period so that such things don't happen.

I will look into this but I probably won't add it for the very next version because I am getting ready to release my other changes and don't want to have to add more and test more before release. I do like the idea, especially giving the player the option but I am just not familiar enough with the coding for it.

After 30 days of enlisted service you can request transfer to the professional level.

They are the remnants of the eastern part of the Calradian Empire. Their region has not yet been invaded by the Khergits.

I like this suggestion and have thought about it from time to time. I will need to look at the source code for A.D. 1257 to see how that is done. I like the idea of giving the player the option. The amount of work it will require will determine if it goes into Version 3, as I am planning to release in the near future.

The work is going well. The most recent changes have been tested and seem to be working. I have a few more things to do before release but it is getting closer.

I too set rules for this. I like your rules quite a bit. I am probably going to set a limit on this in version 3.

It earns you money. I believe it's set at 10 denars per prisoner per week or something like that.

Yes, you could use Morgh's editor to assign couchable lances to the troops. It would be relatively easy and save-game compatible if you don't add any troops or items. All the native lances are in the mod's items_kinds.txt file.

I have added the Geroian faction for version 3.0. I may add an invading faction as well. No plans to add another arabic faction.

I have revised the code to make the professional troops hired from castles/towns "custom troops" if the player is king.

I made that decision some time ago. I will consider giving them to the custom troops and perhaps to some of the faction elite mounted troops.

I am sorry to hear that. My advice to avoid corrupt saves is to only save when you are in a town, castle or village or paused on the world map.
