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)

-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).

Is there any way to make this mod for Warband and Bannerlord? Man we need this for both!

This also happened to me, but I somehow solved it. I own the steam version of the game and it worked fine with it.

How I did:
-I downloaded the 1866 mod.
-Unzip.
-Find the "1866" folder from "Mount&Blade;\Modules" of the downloaded version, put it in the steam version instead.
-I launched the game and found that the font is messed up. I gave few attemps on trying to fix it and luckily I found a solution for it.
-Find the "font_data.xml" from "Mount&Blade;\Data" of the downloaded version, put it in "Steam\steamapps\common\Mount and Blade\Modules\1866\Data".
-The font is fixed and no CD Key issue. So far, everything works fine, at least for me. A good thing is I did not need to touch the core folder (steam version) at all.

Hopefully this will be helpful.

The best feature I like about this mod is it has the chance to choose sides in EVERY WAR. Even in your faction you can switch sides and you can become allies with looters and buy them out! The only reason I play Mount&Blade; classic is this mod! Thank you so much for your precious efforts modders!
