All three of Charles Stuart's kingdoms are in rebellion. Presbyterian covenanters have thrown King Charles and his bishops out of Scotland, occupying northern England. Catholic confederates have retaken much of Ireland. Parliament has ejected the king from his capital, London, and is raising England's trained bands to defend its constitutional rights and the protestant reformation. Each set of rebels claims loyalty to his majesty while taking up arms against him. The king has raised his battle standard in Nottingham and moved his court to Oxford. Anxious to release royalist troops from garrison duty in Ireland, for use against Parliament, King Charles is negotiating with the Catholic confederates under a temporary truce, and considering the legitimisation of catholicism in Ireland.

For some reason when I start my own kingdom I can't recruit anyone as a vassal, is it supposed to be like this ? Please help.

Having some odd audio issues, not sure what from, but audio from music and everything else sounds blown out and with static. Any idea what it could be?

Practically all of the audio (except for drummers & bagpipers)is vanilla WFaS. I've had no other reports of any audio problems.

Is there anyway I can get this for Mount and Blade: Warband? I love the history of the English Civil War and really want this... But I don't have Fire & Sword...

WFaS uses an old Warband engine (1.143), but it's assets (models, scenes etc.) are only licenced for use with WFaS. You might also enjoy the original WFaS single player game.

Mis-placed comment, which moddb won't let me delete! Please ignore.

How do you fix the vanilla names of places and characters? I tried all I can, but didn't work out for me.

Somehow, you have implemented my mod to read native language files, which shouldn’t be possible if you follow the installation guidance notes. Try backing up the languages sub-folder and then deleting its contents.

I tried, but it still doesn't work.

So what are the contents of your C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\mount & blade with fire and sword\Modules\ECWAlpha8\languages\en folder?

Reply Good karma+1 vote

Just ui.csv

That's correct. Please check the contents of your C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\mount & blade with fire and sword\languages\en folder. It should only contain hints.csv, ui.csv and uimain.csv - delete any other csv files.

Mod of stunning quality that knows that it wants to be.

Since its WFAS, it plays better than most other mods when it comes to the battles themselves.

The flaws are basically non existent, and those that are there are only there because its a work in progress.

Needs more recognition, an absolute juicy beast of a mod.

A heaven for every pike & shot enthusiast.
