Hi! I just started playing this a few days ago, haven't updated to.86 yet, but I have a problem I don't see listed in the fixes.
I've joined Sweden (lazy bastards, more on that later). And I've stopped in Reval to see about getting new troops and weapons... when I talk to the garrison commander to hire troops, I can choose them, and I pay the money, but I get no troops. I have space available in my party.
And Sweden... just *****ing here I'm sure this isn't something you'd have any control over (I think) modding-wise, but I gotta vent
I joined because it was said they have an awesome army, and their dudes are tough. But they don't do anything! They won't siege cities! They took a couple from Poland at the beginning of the game, but now all the lords just sit in their northern cities, as all the Polish cities were retaken. It's driving me insane, there's lords with 300 man armies patrolling around Reval where there are no enemies and haven't been any the whole game. The Polish have like 9 armies and Sweden has 20, and Sweden is losing!
But again, I'm sure this is just the vagaries of the game, but holy **** is it frustrating. Luckily I'm getting strong enough to where I can start taking cities myself.
Oh also, if I update to .86 will I need to start a new game?
