A lot of you have probably noticed repetitive posts/threads of this, so I've made this for new players.
Entering PWbeta3/4/5 servers and crashing a few seconds into game? We've all had this problem, so here's a guide on how to fix it.
When entering Beta3/4/5 for the first time, select options instead of play
You'll come across three options
Select the Video Tab, and scroll down to the bottom
Find the box "Environment Shadows" and make sure to have it ticked
Environment Shadows must be enabled
to run Persistent World. Also, some cases, you may also be required to enable Character Shadows
. As a precaution, I would suggest doing so.
Any problems, feel free to PM me
Another issue that may arise is the lack of the correct warband version. Make sure you have v1.153 of Warband
to run this mod, which can be found at http://www.taleworlds.com/
. (Click Mount and Blade Warband, then Download. It shall display the download for 1.153.)
