Disclaimer: Since TW has disabled private servers it won't be possible to test the mod online anymore.

I took a few days to experiment with the .xml files containing combat parameters, and attempted modifying them with the intent of making positive changes according to my vision of combat, this is the result of my changes so far. Keep in mind I'm not here to try to tell TaleWorlds how to do their job, the purpose of this thread is merely to provide more detailed, hands-on feedback and my perspective on what these parameters should come closer to resemble. These are obviously not perfect and would likely require wider testing, hence the post, however I think these small changes alone can make a considerable improvement on combat. Sadly there are also many parameters that we cannot change, as they are outside these .xml files, nevertheless this is better than nothing.

Below is a changelog of all the parameters I've modified so far. There are some I haven't touched yet, and probably will in the future (such as the thrust damage curve), as well as continuing to tweak these parameters to move closer to a sweet spot.

These changes should make movement feel a lot more responsive and greatly reduce the "ice skating" feeling. At the same time acceleration to top speed is slightly longer to prevent "hit and run" tactics, this should go in conjunction with decreasing weight of shields/movement speed of the fastest classes.
quadrupedal_delta_rotation_threshold_for_keeping_local_velocity
0.5
0.6
This makes it slightly easier to turn on horseback and somewhat reduces ice skating. Any further changes should come from the individual horses.
running_backward_speed_multiplier
0.45
0.5
Slightly increased running backwards speed as it was too difficult to keep multiple opponents at bay for an even short amount of time while backpedaling.
running_sides_speed_multiplier
0.65
0.6
Slightly decreased strafing speed to reduce the effectiveness of moving out of range via endlessly strafing.
bipedal_combat_speed_deceleration_blend_multiplier
0.2
0.6
Deceleration to combat speed made faster to reduce the floaty feeling of combat and once again to reduce the effectiveness of going quickly in and out of range by locking the player in combat speed.
max_anim_weight_to_cancel_attack
0.3
0.28
Very slightly reduced attack canceling window to balance the increase in ready speed, the difference should be negligible but still have a small impact in making feints more readable. I would've much rather increased the window and reduced animation blending to make feinting snappier, but it's out of my control.
on_weapon_hit_speed_regain_acceleration
on_weapon_hit_slow_down_factor

Only visual flavour, these changes should make hits feel more weighty and satisfying. Might still need tweaking to ensure no impact on gameplay.

1.35
2.0
2.2
1.18
3.8
Increased ready and defend speed to make combat feel much more responsive, release speed slightly reduced to compensate for these changes as release could be generally too fast and contribute to make feints hard to read. Any further changes to speed should come from the individual weapons.
quick_release_skipped_progress
0.01
0.03
Slightly increased the amount of skipped animation with quick attacks. This should mitigate the attack delay issue by totally skipping the additional delay frames in the animation.
added_animation_duration_for_blocked_attacks
stun_period_bounce
0.2
0.4
0.095
0.338
Changed these parameters as a workaround to make attacker recovery faster. This should help with putting more pressure on the enemy, and giving the defender a tighter window to react, allowing the attacker to punish more effectively poorly timed reactions. It should make fights (especially with shields) faster as a whole.
minimum_anim_strength_for_chamber_block
maximum_anim_strength_for_chamber_block
0.2
0.8
0.15
0.85
Increased the window for chamber blocking. This alone won't fix chambers though, they will still be totally inconsistent because of their physically based nature but should at least be somewhat easier to perform with swings.

Modified damage curve for swings to make damage output overall more consistent and reduce low damage hits, while still glancing very early in the animation (to a certain extent, often it won't glance but it's out of my control). This should also reduce hits to kill.

Modified defender stuns to be slightly longer, especially when using a shield, and slightly decreased attacker stun. This should give the player a somewhat tighter window to react after a hit, and make it easier to put pressure on the enemy and punish poorly timed reactions.

0.7
Modified shield damage multipliers, by default they take 50% less damage when blocking in the correct direction, and an additional 10% less damage when in the right stance. I eliminated the stance bonus and reduced shield damage bonus to 30% when blocking correctly. This makes shields instantly a lot less durable, removes some of the inconsistency in their damage, and incentivizes directional blocking while not making the lack of it too punishing. I guarantee you shields will break with this simple change.

Modified combat_parameters.xml to add animation glances for two-handed, one-handed and polearm lateral swings. By default glances depend on a damage threshold, which however makes them totally inconsistent as speed bonus, a low armour value, or a high dmg weapon can easily get past that threshold and deal a full hit even extremely early in the animation, with the risk of becoming impossible to react to. Following this change, glances should always, consistently happen when hitting too early in the animation. Modified the thresholds for spear thrusts as well which should hopefully mitigate the instant hit issue. Changed swing damage curve to accomodate for this change.

Keeping in mind that, as the arcs of swings are still very large, it would be inevitable to unintentionally glance by catching an opponent in one of your wide swings, I kept the thresholds quite low to avoid too frequent, frustrating glances. That said, please note that all the current values are not perfect and will need fine-tuning over time. I couldn't test with all weapons, so if you feel like you're glancing too little or too often, let me know which weapon you were using and (possibly) which attack direction, so that I can test and modify accordingly.

How to install
In order to install and test these parameters, you will first need to install @MisterOutofTime 's community launcher. This will allow you to play offline with bots, and to join private multiplayer servers.

1. To install the launcher, simply extract the contents of the downloaded .zip package inside your Bannerlord folder. You can then start the launcher via the "CommunityLauncher.exe" in this folder "Mount & Blade II Bannerlord - Beta\bin\Win64_Shipping_Client".
2. Once you've started the launcher, select the "Get Mods" tab, then tick the "CombatDevTest" mod, and click on the "Download & Install" button below. Then select the "DLC" tab and tick "CombatDevTest" to enable the mod.​
3. Download the parameters files and replace them in your "Mount & Blade II Bannerlord - Beta\Modules\Native\ModuleData" folder. Also replace "managed_core_parameters.xml" in your "Modules\CombatDevTest\ModuleData" folder. Make sure to take backups of the original files.​
4. Now all that's left is starting the game through the community launcher. Make sure to tick "Use CommunityLobbyServer" below the Play button to have access to private servers. Once you're in the main menu, you can press F5 to host an offline game, or you can visit the server browser to join a private server if there's any hosted.​

If you host a game, make sure to only select TDM/Siege/Captain/Skirmish modes, other gamemodes might make your game crash.

Not everyone has permission to host servers, however there are often test sessions hosted, so you can join this discord server for information about the launcher or date and time of future hosted multiplayer tests:
https://discord.gg/cQGYm4k

However please note that not always games are hosted with modified parameters. If you're interested in testing them, make sure to ask the host whether or not they're enabled.

I strongly encourage beta players to test this tweaking for the combat system. IMO this is what should be officially implemented.
Thank you my boi Silen for making this happen.

Definitely feels a lot better than what we currently have in the official version, and with some more tightening of those values, it should be really good. I'm currently questioning whether turning up the speed on all the units make it a more enjoyable fighting experience, as compared to Warband, the movement speed feels a bit slow.

Awesome job.

tried these changes, definitely prefer them. i don't think they're perfect, but even playing with higher ping on silen's server it felt much more responsive and satisfying than the base game does with 15-20 ping.

So is there any way for us to tell if we're using it or not? I had it installed I though but I couldn't tell if I was or not. It had me spawn a server and I'm downloading a bunch of stuff for my Coronacation work-from-home situation, so it could have been lag on my end that was making things seem wonky

The combat with Silen's parameters feels much more responsive, speeds even tho slightly higher, feel more natural, only a couple of weapons might need individual adjusting, as said in the OP.
So is there any way for us to tell if we're using it or not?
If you have done this:
Next, you will need to download the parameters files. Once you've done that, simply replace "managed_core_parameters.xml" in this folder "Mount & Blade II Bannerlord - Beta\Modules\CombatDevTest\ModuleData", and replace "native_parameters.xml" in this folder "Mount & Blade II Bannerlord - Beta\Modules\Native".
When creating a server, choose 1 bot for team2, and try to kill it, you should notice the difference. Anyways, the changes are not very radical, sometimes are even much more subtle than i personally would want them to be, but means a world when you play a game one them after playing on default parameters.
I shoud mention that if you want to try the parameters on, and then play a game on official servers, its good to backup both native_parameters and managed_core_parameters, and change them back, just so you dont have to verify the game each time you try the parameters on beforehand.
If you realy realy want to test if you are using them, there is a line in native_parameters you can open and search for (while in the game) called "bipedal_crouch_speed_multiplier" value="4.0" , you can change that value to 40.0 (10x speed), click save in that xml, then in the game you are in, on the right you have rlg console, type "game." and a dropdown list of few files will show, click native_parameters, then hit ENTER. You should see a message in the console in green saying something like, "succesfully reloaded parameters". If you did it right, you should be 10x faster while crouching ? , which also means you did previous things correctly, and that you ARE in fact using this parameters.

I don't have the time to test this at the moment (or play bannerlord at all right now!) but the logic behind most changes seems sound! Interested to see if there is any pickup from this.

The amount of effort behind this... Extremely good work.

Will try it later, if it's as good as people type here and speak around,Taleworlds should really make a move and copy most of those values and optimise them afterwards(even applying some of the changes that Silen mentions that he cannot touch).
Great initiative.

Big improvement, I encourage everyone to give it a try. It's a shame that we didn't have access to every variable involved. Hopefully the dev team will see this and either implement some of these changes themselves or at least facilitate additional tweaks for the future.

Silen spent a lot of time on this, please let it be worth it.

I have captured a video of a duel with these edited parameters, between two very competent melee players (Silen vs Gibby), but have in mind that neither of the players had full health, recording didn't start from the beggining of their duel, and Gibby also carried over couple of wounds from their previous duel.
Also, i apologize for the shaky camera, as i wanted only to be very close, but could not follow up their movement well enough, hopefully it is long enough to give a feel of what combat, speed and responsiveness looks like using these parameters to those who haven't tried them yet.

I also played with these parameters and immediately the combat felt better and more snappy. I hope TW decides to look into this and maybe implement some stuff, followed by some deep structural changes of why and how the combat is not where it should be atm.

This looks promising (2/3) and at the same time is a sign of Warband problems (1/3).

these changes make it feel more like Warband, for sure, but what problems are you referring to? frankly I don’t see any of the controversial elements of warband present in these changes, they just improve the foundation and responsiveness of the combat/movement.
