Greetings.
I humbly present my first release of anything on this forum. I'm a huge fan of crusaders, and after going through different movies and doing some research, I've made 20 Crusader banners that you can either use for your modules (though I want credit for the banners) or for your own personal use in Singleplayer. They are in BMP format, and can be added to your .dds files by using a program like Paint.net

UPDATE 08.01.11: Added three new Crusader Banners (Order of St. Lazarus, Red Maltese and Sovereign Military Order of Malta) and five new Saracen Banners (Abbasid, Almohad, Ayyubid, Fatimid and Marinid)

UPDATE 24.03.11: Added two new banners for the Knights Templars, using the Hospitaller and Hospitaller Cross banners I previously made, and then changing the background to white, and crosses to red.


Unfortunately I haven't uploaded any pictures of the new banners yet, you may do so if you wish.



The banners:

I've made the banners for following factions:
Armenia: 1 banner
Byzantine Empire: 2 banners
Castile: 1 banner
Holy Roman Empire: 1 banner
Knights Hospitallers: 3 banners
Ibelin: 1 banner
Kingdom of Jerusalem: 2 banners
Knights Templars: 5 banners
Lower Lorraine: 1 banner
Order of Christ: 1 banner
Teutonic knights: 3 banners
Toulouse: 1 banner
Order of St. Lazarus: 1 banner
Malta: 2 banners
Saracen: 5 banners

They are all in good, high resolution so it'll look good in the game,
and almost all of the banners are tested in game so they'll look as realistic to the real thing as possible.
If you have any suggestion for new banners, or any improvements to the old banners, please do share.
I might make more banners in the future, if I have some spare time.
Enjoy.

Some of the banners are very bright, maybe you should tone them down. Anyway, nice banners.

Oooh coolies, these are great (I especially like the first and fourteenth one...) although eye wateringly bright on my LCD monitor. Maybe make then less bright in future versions?

Like they said -> Such bright colours don't look good or realistic on flags.
They are awesome though, friggin' saved!

Hi! These banners look awesome, but I'm not too sure on how to get them in my game. Could somebody tell me how? I'm new at all of this stuff, so sorry.

To use it, just download it and copy the textures into your Mount&Blade Warband\Textures and overwrite the existing ones. (i would make a back up of these first)

And also, the Templar banner is the white with a red cross.  Now, i am not denying that there might be other banners the Templars used, but that is one they used, and it is in the pack.

You are free to use it for your clan, as long as I am given credit if anyone asks who made it :smile:

Nice work, Anardion. Thanks for sharing with the community. Keep us posted for more!

How long did it take you to make this pack? (estimated)

There are no files in "Mount&Blade Warband\Textures" called "KnightsTemplars2.dds" or similar for the files to overwrite. Could somebody please explain what exactly is it I'm supposed to do?
