M&B 1.011 and Windows 7 - solution for crashes
« on: October 18, 2011, 05:07:42 PM »
It appears that enhanced patch for MB cures most of crashing on Win7.
If you have mount&blade.exe 3.9Mb in size and have frequent crashes on your Win7 - try downloading enhanced version.
Apparently main TW website still has old inferior build of MB1.011 in main download page. Dunno why they did not change it.
So use the links below:

Download:
http://www.mbrepository.com/file.php?id=2595
http://download.taleworlds.com/mountandblade_1011_setup_enhanced.exe

The above build also removes 32 troop limit and Themida, and includes a list of small enhancements

Also the tip that worked brilliantly for me:
If you have Win7, >=4Mb of RAM and enhanced version (M&B.exe 2.0Mb in size) try set exe as "Large Address Aware". E.g. by using CFF explorer to edit exe under 'File Header>Characteristics>click here> and check "app can handle >2gb address space"
Hat tip, Barf

Thanks GetAssista, the other day I also uploaded it to the Mount&Blade's Mod DB page, which provides lots of extra mirrors:

Have fun!

PS: Is pretty funny that I called the original file like that and now everybody uses the notation.
Even the own TaleWorlds. :). They should call it 1.012 or sth like that. *shrugs* A bit later for that... maybe

Can this simply be installed over top the current M&B, or should M&B be removed from the system and then this installed in place of it?

I suppose you can paste it over the old files, extract the installer using 7-zip.
I've just tested it and works finely, as expected. :)

Portable software FTW!

I'v tried downloading this 3 times. 2 times from moddb and once from the repositroy. All three times it has timed out at 99% with 1 second left. Any solutions?

I downloaded the file from this link.  It's called mountandblade_1.011_enhanced_setup but it's a 3.9MB file.  I thought the enhanced file was 2mb.

Take a look :) :
Code: (From the ModDB page...) [Select]
Mount&Blade 1.011 / Fall 2009 Enhanced Version
Filename -> mountandblade_1011_setup_enhanced.exe
Type -> Full Version
Uploader -> Swyter
Date -> Sep 25th, 2011
Size -> 381.41mb (399,934,609 bytes)
Downloads -> 1,683 (402 today)

It's a full installer, mate. Includes the entire game.
You can overwrite files though.

I asked Yazzy about Enhanced Verison and he said this version removes the troop limit. And Steam does not have Enhanced Version.

95% of crashes with M&B are cured using enhanced version and Large Address Aware program if you have windows 7 64  (Large Address Aware let  you use 4 Gb of Ram instead of 2Gb on M&B)
