  • 1. The "hold F1 flag" can't be used together with advanced formations (like shieldwall), otherwise selected soldiers MAY start to move backwards to the edge of the map. With "advanced formations", use mini-map, "hold this position" and "advance/fall back ten paces" to move groups around. POP's default (built-in Warband's) formations work fine.
  • 2. If during a fight, enemies get stuck in an unaccessible area (e.g. inside a building), have cheats enabled and use CTRL+F4 (knocks out a random enemy). Unlike CTRL+ALT+F4 (knocks out every enemy), this is not recognized as a cheat in terms of achievements.
  • 3. If your game becomes too slow, restart it (Warband.exe). Due to a well-known memory leak of the game, a play session will slow down over time (reloading accelerates this process greatly).
  • 4. If lords attack you while you try to break them out of prison - restart your game (Warband.exe). It's a known Warband bug.
  • 5. "Cow texture on water surfaces" - remove or delete the TexturesHD folder found in the main directory of Warband.
  • 6. NPC party stuck on a river bank or a bridge - try right mouse click to get it unstuck.
  • 7. The Advanced Soldiers Management - on very rare occasions, due to improper usage by players (e.g. use "take all prisoners" hotkey on the garrisoned soldiers), the hotkeys MAY produce unexplained errors. This feature is built on the top of an inaccessible part of the engine, so use it according to the provided instructions:
    • select a troop stack if needed, hold down one of the key combinations listed below AND press the "give"/"hire"/"take"/"capture" button
      • capture all prisoners - LEFT CTRL + A
      • take all prisoners from garrison - LEFT CTRL + A
      • give all prisoners to garrison - LEFT CTRL + D
      • hire all soldiers - LEFT CTRL + S
      • give all soldiers to garrison - RIGHT CTRL + ARROW LEFT
      • take all soldiers from garrison - RIGHT CTRL + ARROW RIGHT
      • move stack one position up inside garrison - ARROW UP - (doesn't work if there's a single soldier in the stack)
      • move stack one position down inside garrison - ARROW DOWN - (doesn't work if there's a single soldier in the stack)
      • move stack to the top of garrison - PAGE UP - (doesn't work if there's a single soldier in the stack)
      • move stack to the bottom of garrison - PAGE DOWN - (doesn't work if there's a single soldier in the stack)


  • Added missing penalty for siege retreat if player tries to leave through the edge of the scene ("Leave area")
  • Village elder's quest "rescue daughter":
    • added check to make sure that the targeted lord is not imprisoned at the moment when the quest is given (as it may take him longer to escape and respawn than the duration of the quest)
    • on rare occasions there was no quest dialog option due to the lack of targeted prisoner lords
  • Quest "rescue prisoner" - initial +1 relation boost for accepting the quest transferred to the reward as it was exploitable: accept quest -> relations +1 -> "can't do it" -> no relation loss -> immediately accept quest again -> ...
  • Conversation with companion "I'd like to ask you something." - added "go back" dialogue option
  • Added missing hairstyles (not new, but already existing ones) for female and custom female skins - no more bald Fierdsvain and Falcon females; player may easily add new hairstyles (no coding required, just replace placeholders with desired meshes)
  • Added missing lods for native beard_j
  • Terrain near Almerra Castle is now passable
  • fixed glitch: ask Arandur/Quigfen for troops -> see their offer -> press on NPC's portrait -> select any lord -> go back -> different offer, thousand soldiers
  • exploit: player is a king -> ask marshal to take fief -> marshal conquers fief and leaves part of siege army (e.g. KO knights) as garrison -> player has unrestricted access to the garrison of the unassigned fief (and takes mentioned free KO knights)
    • player can't take (only give) troops to an unassigned fief
    • if player assigns an unassigned fief to him/herself/husband, then all garrisoned units above lvl 31 will be disbanded.
  • when horse archer AI is enabled: if horse is killed, the rider may get stuck in an attack animation; thanks to Vetrogor
  • slider on the ally/enemy part of the troop ratio bar should be displayed properly now (reverted changes)


  • rune weapons:
    • Large Pouch of Diamonds needed for the location of the mine (instead of Qualis Gem)
    • One Qualis Gem and one Gold Bar needed for "strange" rune weapons
    • One Qualis Gem and Large Pouch of Diamonds needed for enhanced rune items (instead of 2 Qualis Gems)
  • Automatic garrison refill after a walled fief gets taken by the AI - added folder _OPTIONAL_LOWER_AI_GARRISONS_REFILL in the mod directory with optional file; after applying this file AI will leave less/lower quality soldiers in the just conquered walled fiefs; NOTE: world balance was NOT tested with this file in place
  • Eyegrim the Devourer - a special trigger happening every 25 hours:
    • if he is not with his army ("dead"), he will be summoned back
    • he will convert 100% of alive party members (from rescued prisoners) and 25% of alive prisoners into his undead roster (remaining alive prisoners will be kept for the next conversion);
    • based on the level of each alive troop, the conversion will happen as follows:
      • lvl 30+ - Fallen Warrior
      • lvl 26-30 - Fallen Veteran
      • lvl 15-25 - Fallen Footman
      • < lvl 15 - Fallen

  • 1. If you think that archery deals too much / not enough damage, then open "module.ini" file located in the mod folder and find "missile_damage_speed_power = 1.2". Reduce that number (minimum 0.1) to make archery more deadly, or increase (maximum 2.0) to obtain the opposite result.
  • 2. How to reduce the chance for a save corruption (this applies to any Warband mod):
    • when you want to start new game, restart Warband first,
    • don't play with realistic saving policy,
    • use all 9 save slots,
    • save in scenes only (e.g. tavern, castle hall, courtyard, "view your soldiers", villages, etc.),
    • but if you really want to save on the world map (keep in mind that you always have the "view your soldiers" option in your camp menu to quickly create a scene where you can save safely), then stop on the world map, count to 5 (so scripts running in the background have time to finish), and save only afterwards (while still being stopped).
