DISCLAIMER:

It’s a FANMADE revision and in no way attempts to be a continuation of the original mod. All the changes included are mostly just a patchwork of different elements borrowed either from other M&B mods or other games.

FEATURES:

-Interface overhaul (finally it has this genuine western feel with lots of wood and crimson red hide)

-New more western-ish in-game font

-Original text colors changed (green, red and blue text was unreadable with the new interface so I changed it mostly to black)

-COMPLETE music overhaul (Some authentic wild west tunes that will make a rattlesnake rattle, and make your finger search for a trigger to pull. Travelling music, battle music, ambient effects, native american chants you name it it’s all there 48 tracks in total.. no more spaghetti western tunes.. it’s the serious sh*t now guys)

-Several textures (Blood, posters etc) replaced with fresh ones (blood is now more crisp in my opinion but if you disagree you can replace it with the old ones)

-New smaller hud and crosshair (it may not be perfect but it works way better in my opinion)

- ...and finally... the most important fix.. NO MORE buffer crashing! (which happened to be an issue for me and others) I included the enhanced edition of M&B with the mod that seems to fix it.

I really wish I could change a few more things like:

-Deleting the unfinished „storyline” quests that mostly lead to nowhere and replacing them with the randomly generated ones that you would get from the bartender or a random person on the street (like buffalo hunting, horse stealing, indian scouting or whatever)

-Adding better more era-appropriate attire for women npcs

-Better forts

- ... and more but I’m afraid I lack the skill for all that

NOTES:

-1866 works ONLY with the original Mount&Blade game. You’ll need the serial key in order to run the original Mount&Blade (You can try your Warband serial Key I heard it worked for some)

-For those who don’t want to mess with their original Mount&Blade folder just copy: font_data.xml from Data folder and copy all 373 textures from the Texture folder into your directory (1866 uses core Mount&Blade interface and font so if you want to have it replaced with the ones I made you gotta either use the Mount&Blade version that I included with the mod or do as I mentioned)

Have fun fellow cowboys

LET'S REVIVE 1866

News

If there is someone out there who is good at programming and modding in general and wishes to put some more life into this awesome mod. Contact me through an inbox. Maybe we'll squeeze even more juice from it before the Bannerlord comes out... and before some decent and stable mods will be released for it (I count another 2 years for that haha).

Keeps crashing in battle, when reinforcements comes in or when shooting revolvers on horseback. No error comes up, game just exits itself.

I admire the purpose of this project, I truly do. 1866 is one of my favorites and it is good to see it get more love.

BUT.

Would it be murder to make a version of the mod for people who do *not* want to immediately rip out and replace most of the stuff in the game, especially stuff not isolated to a mod?

I tried to transmit the mod alone and when I try to read it, no text appears.

Some of us are fine tolerating the Medieval-y text because we also play other mods. So could this be addressed?

Edit: After backing up my game and copy/pasting the entire directory in, it turns out the situation was far worse than I thought.

Put it simply, doing this led to M&B being locked in to Trial Version. That's Bad enough, particularly if there wasn't the old "Enter your Warband Serial" exploit. But not particularly uncommon when dealing with original M&B mods.

No, what REALLY set this apart is that after doing this, the game restarted.... and then threw up ANOTHER Trial notification thing. So in other words, I literally *cannot* play this mod with any kind of coherence, even if I did what the author suggested. And moreover, doing so has locked me into a pattern where- had I not taken precautions- I'd be unable to play the original.

So to whoever downvoted me, I suggest you realize that this is a very real concern. And unfortunately, it's the main one I have to focus on.

I don't like having to obsess over this instead of someone's labor of love, but the situation doesn't give me a choice.

Right, I decided to override the Exe and Shortcut extracted from the zip with the one I backed up, and that fixed the problem, so I can now play my game again. Including this mod. So for future reference, I would *Remove the Exe override from the ZIP*

So far, I'm still dipping my feet in but I'm impressed. In particular, I really love the reworked sound. The added bits in the town are very, very good.

I'll have more feedback when I can get more time to play, but so far I must give my kudos.

Sorry for the trouble man. True the exe file may mess up the game activation I haven't thought about it previously.. I myself just make sure I always have my serial key saved in a notepad somewhere. Cheers.

As I said in the instruction. The folder with Mount&Blade; original game is required for it to run properly. For the text to show up properly YOU NEED to replace font_data.xml file in the original game's Data folder as well as to replace all 373 textures. No other way around it I'm afraid. You can always back the original font file and textures separately on your disc and copy them back once you want your old interface and font back. Cheers.

SO I think I've found a bug. Sometimes when I enter a saloon the game crashes with some error message. It appears to be random and not specific to a particular town.

Does the error say something about "buffer render"? If so I'm afraid it's a bug inherited from the original 1866. It's always been there. I managed to reduce the frequency of it happening by using the Mount&Blade;: Enhanced version of the game (which is included in the zip file by the way) but it may still cause some trouble occasionally ;/

No it's a generic run-time error.

I haven't tweaked anything in the scripts or core files so I hope it's not my fault :X But I'll look into it. If it happens more often and on other occasions, let me know via inbox.
