Plan to download the current version after this post. I am looking forward to it as I have played Romance of the Three Kingdoms 1-4, 7, 9, and 11, along with every Dynasty Warriors game since 3. I also own the horrible Brewitt-Taylor abridged translation of the book, as it was the only copy I could find. I'll post any suggestion and bugs I find after I give it a shot.
EDIT: I have version 1.153 of Warbands, and every time I start a game, after about a minute to minute and a half of loading when starting a new game, the game stops responding.
