Singleplayer - 70%
Multiplayer - 98%
- All SP battle troops are Kengeki style, they also have upgrades like Warband Kengeki, does not include mercenaries
- Multiplayer is just like Warband Kengeki, the captain co-op has also been ported for Kengeki
- The SP Map is similarly shaped like Japan
- There are exploding arrows in SP
- You can have pink, red, green, blue hair depending on your face skin
- SP Troop icons have been replaced with Japanese icons
- Building icons have been replaced with Japanese icons
- Quite a bit more new music when visiting towns, fighting or playing MP
- All Warband Kengeki SP items are in WFAS SP
=======What's Not Done=======
- Remaking all villagers with correct armor and weapons
- The original Fire and Sword dialogue has not been changed
- Most buildings are still from WFAS
- Most NPCs are still dressed like WFAS NPC's
- Kingdom banners (I tried and came close )
- Could not port over the new MP maps from Warband Kengeki (Game and mental limitation :/ )
**** Why are you releasing this so unfinished?
- Busy with real life, college homework can be quite daunting. I don't have the spare
time anymore to work on this, and I wanted to see a download link on the forum topic instead of it
being forever "COMING SOON".
**** Will single player ever be finished?
I hope so, if anyone is ever determined enough to want to have single player done,
shoot me an email and I'll let you work on the source directly.
