Please note that we've updated the Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord save file system which requires you to take certain steps in order for your save files to be compatible with e1.7.1 and any later updates. You can find the instructions here.
Yeah... That's a consequence of forum toxicity and nothing else...
Seriously, guys. I don't know if you can see it, but I believe that the single player will have the same result if more and more suggestions from us continue to be ignored or left for "soon". Everyone here is waiting until the last second for Bannerlord to have a grandiose final version, but this has not only been slow, it has also been off the expectations about "major" updates.
We: when will the new patch be released?
We: When will you fix this bug?
TW: it is fixed, we are doing some final tests.
TW: soon... it is done..... we are doing some final tests....
------After 10 months------
We: when will you release the new patch and the bug?
TW: We will release it once it is finished.
