Please refer to the documentations folder in the mod download for an installation guide and the manual to the beta which contains information about the new features. The installation guide contains important information to do with playing on steam and how to run the game so WSE works properly.
It is with regret we have to announce that this version of warsword conquest is not compatible with the Mac version of warband due to the necessity of WSE which is essential to the correct running of the mod.
HOW TO INSTALL THE MOD
- Step 1: Download the mod
- Step 2: Unpack it using WinRAR
- Step 3: Now you should have a folder which has another folder inside with all the files of the mod. Take this last folder (the one with the files) and put it into M&B Warband's Modules folder
- Step 4: Go to your main M&B Warband folder, locate the file called "mb_warband" and either put it somewhere else or rename it EG. "mb_warband_original"
- Step 5: Enter the mod's folder (the one you put inside Modules) and enter the first folder (1.170 exe). Copy the file you find there and paste it inside your M&B Warband folder.
Now you should have "mb_warband" (the one you just put there) and the other file you renamed (if you didn't put it elsewhere).
- Step 6: Delete (or put somewhere else) the folder TexturesHD from the main M&B Warband folder.
- Step 7: Go in the mod's folder (the one inside Modules) and enter the folder named WSE.
- Step 8: Launch the game from the WSE Loader. Select the mod in the drop menu in the launcher and then launch the game.
For those that had the WSE Loader telling them that it couldn't find mb_warband.exe. Launch the game at least once from Steam and then repeat the 1.170 downgrade.
Warsword Conquest Winds of Magic Beta
Dear Warsword fans,
It has been 2.5 years since our last release and while the new version of the mod is not completely ready the team has decided that it is now in a playable state and that the best way to get to discover all the issues which need fixing is to have our player base feed back to us their experiences.
Many of the magic schools, diplomacy (late game) features and map/battle/magic balance since all the changes have not been tested with much thoroughness so feedback on all accounts will be appreciated.
In the mod download is a documentation folder with some key documents including the installation guide which must be read and followed for the mod to work properly. This version of the mod uses warband script extender (included in mod, no need for separate download) which has it's own special installation instructions.
I would like to extend my gratitude to Kraggrim, Burspa and Marshal_157 for joining the team and allowing the scope of this update to increase 3 or 4 fold. Without them a lot of what we had done, especially on the visual front, would not have been possible. Many thanks also to the trusty Polloio and gsanders for their valuable contributions and to all the others whose works have helped us put this version together. See credits in documentation for full list.
There is not a changelog as such but there is manual in the documentation folder with information about some of the new features and skills.
If you have a bug you would like to tell us about you can either post on this article or for the fastest way for us to see it join our discord Discord.gg and post in our bugs section. A list of known bugs will be listed at the bottom of this article to help bug reports from being duplicated.
Please note that diplomacy has not been tweaked yet politically so unrealistic alliances and defensive pacts can occur.
Thank you for your patience and we hope you enjoy the new beta.
