There have been some reports of crashing while using Windows 7.  Compatibility mode of XP SP2 or SP3 seems to help most people

I ask again, how do you use the new formations?o.0
J - Form ranks (inf/archers in line, cav in wedge)
K - Form wedge
P - Line formation
U - Unset Formation

You can also go into a menu when the world map is up and alter the starting 'issued orders' at the moment there are only 2 codded starting formations.  the standard infantry ahead of cav/archers and theres also a 'line' where archers move forward, cavalry move back - archers stay in the middle.

Thank you very much. ^^  and no, none of the changes present in Litus affect Native game-play. ^^ so you can go back to native whenever you want. :smile:

Did you change the battle sizer? or it is still 150?

And i guess you kept the current map  :grin:
1.0 might introduce the beginnings of a new map, but its unlikely given our time management skills xD

Our mapper is busy so, we're sort of 'stuck' waiting around.  fun fun fun.

i read the list of things that add in this mods. I must said this is a great mods, and u make the game more interesting. But i have a few question, because i havent download it yet just want to make sure before i download it.

I read before there is a list that tell u something like make the mamluke not dominating the battle. I dont know if its being ask before, but i havent seeing it being ask or being explain yet. What kind of changes that u do in this mods on balancing the mamluke? i just need to check up before i download it, and i think it will be very useful information on others. And afterall i use Sarranid faction in cavalary, mixing it with rhodok sharpshooter and sergeant to make sure my castle save (sharpshooter in my experience kills more then sarranid master archer but cost less, and so the seargent comparing to sarranid guard).

thanks.

taking out the unfortunate 0.82, I haven't had a single crash with Litus and I am playing this from the very early stages of the mod (0.5 or something).

1.0 won't be released for at least another week.  0.9 is stable enough to play though so just enjoy that a little whilst we build the 1.0 release, which will be a massive improvement on 0.9.

If anyone could help me out it would be great, as i played the 0.7 then recently installed the latest version and cant play it anymore =(

Its a problem with your latest TaleWorlds patch.  Delete Litus 0.9.  Reinstall the LATEST Warband patch which is Version 1.113 and then reinstall Litus Mod 0.9 and the problem will go away.

A lot of people are having issues with the latest Warband patch.  But I can assure you that the commonres error is not related to Litus.  :smile:

I hope this fixes your problem.
