Bonjour. Je suis un grand fan de ce mod . Je rencontre aujourd'hui mon premier problème avec les mises à jour . J'ai télécharger les nouveaux textes et shaders mais je ne peux plus jouer : les dialogues ne correspondent plus aux personnages. Je voulais commencer une nouvelle partie pour tester les mises à jour et le capitaine me parle d'un maitre forgeron , le marchand de m'apprendre à me battre , le paysan d'épées pour la garde etc je ne peux donc pas prendre le bateau . Idem avec une ancienne partie: les commentaires dans les villes et les villages ne sont plus adaptés aux situations. Les rapports du perso ne correspondent pas .
Désolé de laisser un commentaire un peu négatif alors que je joue à 1429 depuis des années . Le jeu est toujours excellent c'est juste ce petit prob avec les textes . Que faire , svp ?

You have no idea how long have i waited for a game or mod set in this time period. Ever since i watched "The Messenger: The Story of Joan of Arc" back in 1999 i loved it.

Can't wait for the full English translation, keep up the good work :)
