How to install a Mod for Mount&Blade
« on: January 05, 2009, 08:57:19 PM »
Hello there..:)

So you have seen a module out in cyberspace and want to play it.  This quick guide will showl you how to proceed.

Step 1: Download the Module to a temp directory

Step 2: Open up windows explorer or otherwise navigate to the folder you downloaded into.

Step 3 Right click on the zipped module file and select Extract.




Step 4: Navigate to the directory where you installed Mount&Blade..usually C:\program files\mount&Blade\modules




Select OK.

When you launch Mount&Blade, select the down arrow at the top like this:




Then once selecting a Module like Prophesy of Pendor, a unique module splash screen should appear like this:





You should be ready to go! :)

Select "Play Mount&Blade" and your adventure begins!

Best,

Saxondragon

Don't want to make a new topic for this question so I'll ask it here: Do I need to delete the old PoP folder when I install patch 1.2?  :oops:

Most definitely not. Patches are just that - small improvements which add or replace small contents to the already existing basis of the game/mod. Of course, some mods also have "full installer" patch versions, which are basically the "whole mod" patched to the respective version - in these cases you could delete the folder of the older version. But in PoP's case, the patches are normal patches and you should just extract them in the PoP folder.

All these are just words. They don't show anything.

Patches for software.
Like patches for pants.

Don't need to buy new pants to put patches on them.

Any directory will do.  I have a habit of creating a temporary directory called "Temp downloads".  c:\temp_download\

Put the .rar or zip file there, then unpack or unzip it.

Best,
