The Frankish hordes are causing performance issue in Danish territory, and keeps danish army constantly wrecked, playing Denmark is a bloody nightmare, they can't organize campaigns because they keep changing Marshall when he gets defeated by Franks the moment he gets out of his castle

How can I disable the stamina system ? It only affects the player is quite an annoying mechanic, your character gets gassed pretty fast and your forced to just stand there for 5 min watching the battle unfold

my honor is falling down after every attack on somebody or something and relationships with lord falling down too, especially when it is about -1 and more down. f.e. when i have rel. -1, after some months is -100, without active negative influence on lord.....is it all due to diplomacy mod?

Hi, are you sure you're playing on Windows, on a relatively recent Warband version? I developed the game for the Steam version and on Windows, I don't know how it plays on different OS or older versions of the game.
