Adrius, the problem occured when I updated my sound system (so among others I can use headphones) and then that screwed up some other program on the computer so a few minor functions and graphical stuff don't work.

Okay so here's the deal, school gave us them new shiny computers, but the sound system didn't work with headphones, so he gave us this link to download an updated driver thingy so the headphones would work proberly, then AFTERWARDs he told us it might screw up a few things with the computer, and one of these was the scroll function (which is used in M'n'B for changing weapons, should you not know), which now, instead of just scrolling, opens this small scroll bar (like the one on the side of the screen) that you can't click or anything, and it still works perfectly fine, except in Mount and Blade.


Clear enough?

Also, I would delete that sound update and download it from microsoft webpage or something, but I don't know  where I have to go to uninstall the update. I've looked in the install/delete programs program, but can't find it.

Hey City.

Kontrollpanelen -> System -> Maskinvara -> Enhetshanteraren

See if you can find the evil drivers there.

...

So guys, M&B question: What type of weapons do you use, and how?

Earlier I always used sword & shield + Bow. By tackling your foe with your horse and then following up with a sword strike you can rack up kills extremely fast, but your horse almost always takes damage.

That's what made me love the spear & shield. Since I learned to use the spear effectively I've never been dehorsed by infantry.
I charge at my enemy, and when I'm in range I steer my horse away from them and dodge my enemy's blow and lance their face as my horse passes by. I lose a bit of speed damage with this technique, but it's invaluable in large battles where small damage to your horse quickly adds up and ultimately gets you dehorsed.

If I see a really nice situation (e.g. group of archers with their back faced to me) I change tactics and instead only use half the length of my spear. I charge up close and then attack with my spear and immediately as it hits I press the block button which brings my spear to my side again. With this technique my hit speed increases by about 50%, and I usually one hit kill.

Along with the spear & shield I bring a nice crossbow and bolts. Crossbows are awesome since you don't really need to spend points on anything but horse archery for it to be effective, and in Prophesy of Pendor crossbows are fricking sniper rifles.

Realistically speaking, a bow, a few spears, lance and then a mace if you're fighting armored or a sword if unarmored foes should be the best. Bow>throw spear>lance>if you can't ride through then the close quarter weapon.

Crossbows are supposed to be kinda hard to reload on a horse(though can be done) if you care about historical accuracy.

Yeah it's a light crossbow I'm carrying, the heavy ones can't be used on horseback (least not in the mod I'm playing)

You can't carry that many weapons in M&B, but a mace of some kind usually works well against most targets. If you use a sword you can always thrust with it, which changes the damage type to piercing which owns armor.

Axes are pretty cool but inferior to swords imo, unless they have a pointy end that you can thrust with (in which case it becomes a very awesome weapon, like the Knight War Axe in PoP... top tier stuff)

You kidding me? Axes totally rule, especially in sieges, let two or three soldierrs go ahead of you and tank the enemy, and you stand behind them with a giant two-handed axe and cleaves the head of the enemies.

Although a lance works pretty good in that situation too.

Actually, piercing is just the type that shouldn't own armour (plate mail at least, plate mail armours were tested by shooting them on point blank range you know), better than slashing though, which is worst. Blunt should own armour. Piercing weapons like fencing swords kinda suck on the battle field.

@City: Axes tend to do more damage and have less speed than sword equivalents. With such a huge weapon you'll probably one hit kill with most strikes, which makes speed more useful. The axe's bonus against shields is redundant.

In sieges the ultimate melee-weapon is a long range twohanded polearm, such as a halberd or polehammer.

@Joonas: Agreed on that, the current way damage types work is kinda like this I think:

Cutting - excellent against unarmored, lower damage on armored.
Blunt - decent damage against both unarmored and armored.
Piercing - Excellent damage against armored foes, lower damage on unarmored.

Blunt and piercing should switch place imo. However, once your weapon proficiences get high enough it doesn't matter what type of weapon damage you deal, what matters most is speed and range.

Yeah

Your character can get the stats of a god, but in the end, M&B is mostly about player skill. A couched lance through the head kills just about any character.

The most important part of M&B combat imo is knowing your weapon. Being able to stay at the exact edge of your weapon reach and beginning your strike at the best moment increases one's effectiveness amazingly.

EDIT:

Holy crap

That's awesome! I didn't know that feature existed in Warband! Fricking ripostes!

That really takes M&B combat to another level.

Hey Adrius, you know what city sells a good Two-handed līpolearm? That can be used on a horse?

I'm gonna assume you're talking about PoP.

Shop inventory is randomized. There's no certain shop that sells two handed polearms. Good two-handed polearms (such as polehammers and halberds) generally can't be used on a horse, realism ya know.

If you want it at start you could always use the Troop Editor to modify your starting equipment.

I've also edited most Knighthood Orders and the entire Pendor troopline (which sucks normally, 'cept for Foot Knights, they're pretty awesome with their polehammers.)

K, will check it out.

I already got my hands on a Fine Zweihander (which I must say, is the most awesome sword EVER), and a decent sheild, a half-good sword to use on horseback as well as a spear. Want to replace the spear with a better one, the sword with a nice blunt weapon and the shield with a throwing weapon, so I have something ranger.

I also need to get a new helmet, since my uber viking helmet was stolen by The Empire!

Yeah the Zweihander is pretty awesome, at least until you can get your hands on a Strange Foreign Two-Handed Sword (Two-handed Katana with piercing damage on swing motion, kicks massive amount of ass) or a Strange Runed Two-Handed Sword (or the upgraded Ruby,Saphire or Emerald versions. All of them have piercing damage.)

My favoured weapons are a Black Iron Spear, Knightly Heather Shield and a Light Crossbow with normal bolts.

For a one-handed blunt weapon I'd recommend the Metal Spiked Mace, you can loot it pretty easily off Death Cultists.

ZOMFGBBQ! I downloaded a DDS-plugin for my PS, and the first I found was textures for a DEMON inside the game!

Haha, the demon body? I found that myself but it's not really used in PoP. The Demon Hands and Demon Legs are used on the Demonic Magnus however.

Been thinking of creating a foot-soldier named Demonic Crusader that uses the full demon appearance and two handed weapons. Could make it a rare spawn for Death Cultist groups... give it like 300 strength and Power Strike 16 or something.

That would make for some epic stuff. I'll check out the textures some more and see if I find anything else that's interesting.


And a noobish question: Since this is sorta my first time experimenting with stuff like this, how do I save a thing so I use it ingame, withou replacing the orginial texture? Say if I want to use the old one again later on?
