IF you can't launch the game, the safest bet is the clean install. But you can try to remove the mods.
Especially check this message:
Even after the new hotfix for the launcher crashing, my launcher was still crashing, after removing the files i had from "fixed launcher" everything was back to normal, it's working fine now, if u want to give a try, delete this files

Clean Install
The clean install is removing every single game-related file from your computer and installing the game again. Why do you need to remove the game while you just want to remove the modifications? Unfortunately, some of the modifications do not just add a new modules folder but also change or adds contents to the existent modules folder. Without a reinstall, we can't be sure those files are unchanged.

To perform a Clean Install, Uninstall the game. You can do that by right-clicking the game on Steam Library and selecting Delete Local Content. Delete all folders related to the game that remains after the uninstallation. The folders that might have files inside:
Steam: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Mount & Blade II Bannerlord
Epic: C:\Program Files\Epic Games\Mount & Blade II Bannerlord
C:\Users\USERNAME\Documents\Mount and Blade II Bannerlord
C:\ProgramData\Mount and Blade II Bannerlord

Note: You'll need to allow Windows to display hidden folders and files to see the ProgramData folder and its contents.

A couple people I know had an issue where they couldn't launch from Steam even after restarting/validating files, etc, but launching the exe from the Bannerlord folder did allow the game to launch (...steamapps\common\Mount & Blade II Bannerlord\bin\Win64_Shipping_Client/Bannerlord_BL.exe). You can even login to Multiplayer, though it first takes you to the SP menus. Hope that works for you.

So, guys, I was helped by launching the game not from a shortcut on the desktop, but from Bannerlord_BE in the directory: D: \ Epic Games \ Chickadee \ bin \ Win64_Shipping_Client
Unfortunately this is only a single player game. The TaleWorlds.MountAndBlade.Launcher does not work.

Thanks buddy!

Thanks for the quick fix TaleWorlds! Everything works now. (y)

Can I ask why the mod tools bugs where the main map terrain paint doesn’t work and crashes and maps prior to 1.5.5 being loaded into the game cause you to spawn a mile underground are not even in the known issues after two weeks when they are both easily reproducible and multiple people have this issue?
This has been holding me down tbh whenever I try to work on some random thing outside of my projects it just crashes I once even lost my scene

I just started the game and the loading screens take much longer than in the previous version. Also, I have about 5-10 seconds of freeze time to load UI and scene models ( items ). I have deleted the shader cache folder and not even that running without any mod enabled. Is anyone else having problems?

Anybody else not able to assign your brother as quartermaster in this build? Nothing happens when I click on the assign role button, works for other characters just not my brother.

Yes. I responded with this to the other users:

The performance problems may not be directly related to UI but shaders. This is something we are looking into. Anybody who is experiencing performance issues can help with this process by switching to the telemetry branch and sending us a recording of the issue (or issues). Please note the telemetry branch is using version 1.5.6 (so it is practical for MP as well). However, likely these issues affect both versions.

Ok thanks for the info Duh :party: . I'll keep an eye on it but I guess those issues will get fixed as soon in next patch, right? Because it is unplayable for me at the moment, both game and tools...weird.

I came to report this but I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one. Simply put, I'm getting the worst performance in my BL history with this patch ( Yes including Beta ) MP sieges are not playable because of FPS drops and I don't want to lower settings because that turns game into Cartoonlord. I will wait for hotfix I guess

On paper the changes look good for multiplayer, look forward to finishing my shift and messing around to see the differences.
 
It's all good but. Why legionary still have 'heavy' axe with 98 swing speed (with good damage and bonus vs shields)?

Also why maces now have same speed but not similar damage? For example Oathsworn has Imperial Heavy Mace with 87 speed and 59 dmg while Varyag has Northern Mace with 88 speed and only 48 dmg...

Nothing has changed cav is still broken as hell.Cav needs to be nerfed hard before we get to the final.Also Aserai Tribal warrior must be able to pick Improved armor +long sword or mace bacause even the battanian clan warrior has improved armor+ long sword so that makes aserai even worse when battania has 3 good infs for 100 120 160.The biggest problem is that heavy horses take too little damage so we can't dismount a good cav player it's almost impossible.Something must be done.I liked the game much more before you nerfed the throwing weps now you are helpless vs the cavs.You constantly poke their horses when they are close to you and hit for 10-20 damage unless they are charging at you which only noobs do.
