Frequently Asked Questions
Q1: The mod crashes on initial start or halfway through the loading screen. What do I do?
A1: Make sure that:
- you are running the latest version of MB:Warband
- your copy of the game is legitimate and is bought through Steam, GoG, TaleWorlds etc. (pirated version of the game WILL NOT WORK)
- the options "Load textures on demand" is ticked in the launcher options; Configure → Video options → Load textures on demand: ticked
- edit mode is disabled in the launcher options; Configure → Advanced → Enable Edit Mode: unticked
If none of the above solves the problem, please report it with it's error message in the community forums.

Q8: Why can I not turn off the wound system?
