Unresolved Poor performance in Mount & Blade: Warband

So, I decided to download Mound and Blade Warband after Bannerlord not running very well on my rig, and to my surprise, Warband runs even worse.

In custom battles, Oasis map with 150 battle size, I get like 20-30 fps when looking at the crowd. I have an i5 4460, gtx 970, 8gb ram. Not a great rig, but surely Warband should run better?

Any idea what this might be? Settings don't matter much either, and I tried the "Force single thread" option.

Thanks!

I assume that you are playing Native with no mods. Is the fps drop only happening at that one occassion? Are there any effects at other parts of the game? And which OS are you playing at, Windows 10 or something different?

Yes, Windows 10. Fps is just low overall, with bigger drops being when I look at the soldiers clashing. Nothing out of the ordinary in terms of behavior (the drops happen when you would expect), just very low performance overall.

Tried changing render_buffer_size to 512, but didn't improve a thing.

Can you copy paste your module.ini content within a code environment and make a screenshot of your graphical settings, please? Perhaps we can find something unusual there. And the cursor itself is alright or is it flickering (question to exclude some other issue)?

This is driving me nuts because even Bannerlord runs better with a larger battle size.

Thanks!
1. turn off pixel shader in the launcher
2. turn off Vertical sync
3. in ingame option put HDR mode on off or low
4. enable fast water reflections
