Note: So far i only have confirmations for Windows 10 and 11, and both on the GOG version of the game
So, i'll keep this short. When i started playing this mod on my new laptop, it didn't work. Normally, i used enhanced edition of 1.011 Mount and Blade, but this time, that was no use. The game would crash without any error message on loading settings file.
I tried both Steam version of the game, and downloaded the game from Taleworlds site too, neither worked.
(Taleworlds version does work! Sometime later after writing this file, i discovered it to work after all, i don't know why it didn't work before, maybe i just screwed up. Anyways, in the Release 2 in files section, the description contains instructions on how to get the mod working on Taleworlds version of the game)

As a last straw, i thought of trying GOG version of the game (GoodOldGames), aaand, it didn't work either, RGL error while loading textures. BUT, and this is IMPORTANT. I found a solution here:
Go to the site, and find the file called CFF explorer 86. Then install it, and use it on the GOG version of the game's EXE
Right click on the game executable (image beneath) Then find the option "Edit with CFF explorer". Backup the EXE!
Next what you do, is go to File header, then Characteristics, there is a section which reads " click here" , you do that, and then you find the Checkbox "App can handle >2gb address space", click that
Then you simply press OK, save the file and congratulations, you have just made the application able to play the mod
Finally, before you can play, you should go to the mod files and delete the texture called font.dds. Font is broken, my bad. Removing that file should fix it
(It might be necessary to also remove font.xml from Data folder)
Now, when i was launching the mod myself, i got a series of Assertion errors, if you get these, just press ignore, ignore, ignore, and they should stop appearing eventually, then the game should load into main menu.
Mind you that this worked for ME, but there is no guarantee that it will work for you. But i have a feeling, that it could help for some of you
Now, i feel i need to explain specifically why it has to be the GOG version of the game. As stated, The enhanced edition crashes while loading, so that option is not available
Steam version is not an option, because you can not use CFF explorer on the exe without Steam detection the alteration, and then refusing to start the game
Taleworlds version will simply not launch, at all. Why, is anyone's best guess, but i spent a long time trying and the info i found online, implied that both Steam and GOG have modified the games somehow, to make them run. Taleworlds has not touched the game for years, so their version won't run on Win 10
