Change banner. (Minimod)

Currently viewing this thread:

UPDATE: Added a version that allows you to modify your banner regardless of whether one has been granted to you.
UPDATE 2: There is currently a bug that causes lords to have duplicate banners. I recommend you don't use this mod until it's fixed. :sad:

Well, I finally got to choose my shiny new banner.... that I'm stuck with forever.... Yikes! :shock:
So I chose my banner, but after a few days, as I expected, I wanted to change it.
Guess it was time for me to figure out what M&B does with all those little text files!

So....

This is for all the indecisive people out there (like me)! :razz:
This little mod allows you to change your banner at any time, but only after you have already been allowed to fly one. (That way, it's not really cheating, I think.)

This is only compatible with Native version 1.003!!!

1. Navigate to the folder where you installed the game.
2. Open the Modules folder.
3. Open the Native folder.
4. MAKE A BACKUP OF THE menus.txt FILE!
5. Open the menus.txt file in your favorite text editor.
6. Goto line 46. (The line that starts with: mno_camp_recruit_prisoners  10 105 1 1 2270 1 1224979098644774912 ......)
7. Replace that whole line with one of the following: (EXACTLY AS IT IS WRITTEN BELOW.)

Change your banner only after you have been granted one (Non-cheat version.):
Code:
 mno_camp_recruit_prisoners  10 105 1 1 2270 1 1224979098644774912 2106 2 1224979098644774912 24 32 2 1224979098644774912 144115188075856030 4 0 32 2 144115188075856030 0 2133 2 144115188075856028 0 2133 2 144115188075856029 0 2133 2 144115188075856030 0 3 0  Recruit_some_of_your_prisoners_to_your_party.  1 2060 1 864691128455135254  .  mno_action_read_book  0  Select_a_book_to_read.  1 2060 1 864691128455135256  .  mno_action_modify_banner  1 31 2 144115188075855949 1  Modify_your_banner.  1 900 1 1513209474796486657  .  mno_action_retire  0  Retire_from_adventuring.  1 2060 1 864691128455135258  .  mno_camp_action_4  0  Back_to_camp_menu.  1 2060 1 864691128455135251  .

Change banner at any time. (Cheat version): (Those of you who were given a banner at the start, use this version for now until I fix the other one.)
Code:
 mno_camp_recruit_prisoners  10 105 1 1 2270 1 1224979098644774912 2106 2 1224979098644774912 24 32 2 1224979098644774912 144115188075856030 4 0 32 2 144115188075856030 0 2133 2 144115188075856028 0 2133 2 144115188075856029 0 2133 2 144115188075856030 0 3 0  Recruit_some_of_your_prisoners_to_your_party.  1 2060 1 864691128455135254  .  mno_action_read_book  0  Select_a_book_to_read.  1 2060 1 864691128455135256  .  mno_action_modify_banner  0  Modify_your_banner.  1 900 1 1513209474796486657  .  mno_action_retire  0  Retire_from_adventuring.  1 2060 1 864691128455135258  .  mno_camp_action_4  0  Back_to_camp_menu.  1 2060 1 864691128455135251  .

8. Save the file.

To change your banner (while on the map screen):
[list type=decimal]
[*]Click on the Camp button.
[*]Click on "Take an action."
[*]Click on "Modify your banner."
[*]Choose your new banner.
[/list]

To remove this mod, simply replace the modified menu.txt file with the backup you made. (You did make a backup first, right?! :shock:)

Enjoy!

How would he have posted that if his PC didn't work though? :wink:


If he doesn't have a laptop.

Nice work!

Now I can choose a banner to fit whatever faction my fancy takes me to
 
I'm sad to report a bug - it doesn't work if you get your banner during character creation. The option simply doesn't show up. But I'm not too sure if it's the mod bug or a game bug though.

nice work.  Do you understand the hex strings well?  If so, there will be a lot of questions for you about which bit means what!
 
Hey guys, glad you like it! This is my first mod, so I was just hoping that it'd work. lol

of course... now you cant recruit prisoners  :roll:
Have you tried it and had that problem or are you just saying that because you think I overwrote the recruit menu? :lol:

I've been waiting for this kind of a mod, I think it should have been in the game at release as a function but :grin: thanks to you sir :smile:
Actually, it already was in the game. It was just disabled unless you had the cheat menu enabled. (Which I don't know how to enable within the game, without modding.)

Ah, darn! You're right. It's my fault, not a game bug. :sad: I have it so the menu will only show up if $g_player_banner_granted was set (which happens when you are granted a banner, but not if you are given one at the start.) I'll see if I can fix it...

I'm still learning but, I think I've got a fair grasp on how things work. I'm just doing this the hard way right now because there's no module system for 1.003 out yet. However, once it's released, I doubt it will change much, so there will be little need to manually edit the text files.

Update: I edited my first post to include a version that allows you to change your banner at any time, regardless of whether you've been granted one. For those of you who were given a banner at the start, use this version for now until I fix the other one.
 
Problem: Changing my own banner works fine, but it doesn't give my old banner back to the lord who previously owned it. Meaning that now there are two guys with the red/white chessboard. Not good. Fixable? Please, please, prettty please with sugar on top?

Well, since you asked so nicely... I see what I can do. :wink:

EDIT: Actually, I'm not sure I can do anything about that right now, without the module system. I think it's an issue with the Native script that's run when you select a banner. What it does is finds the lord that has the same banner as you and changes that lord's banner to something else. The problem is, it only changes that one lord's banner to something different then yours. Basically, the script was really only meant to be run once.

Too bad, I tried around 15 banners, and now I keep seeing this damn red & white chessboard on every shield :s
I hope we will find a solution to this problem.

PS : This banner really does look like an old and ugly tablecloth :'(
