Save loading time on any MB game
« on: December 23, 2014, 11:06:37 pm »
Hey guys im sure a lot of you already know about this but youll be amazed at how many people dont know.

At least 5 out of 8 people i asked didnt know about this, and i thought the right thing to do in the christmas spirit is do something to solve an annoyance
that stupid taleworlds intro logo and movie that starts up every time
now you can get rid of it forever

First of all shut down the game you are playing completley.  Now, go into your main warband folder.. NOT modules or native or anything the MAIN warband folder
you will see these files  taleworlds_intro.bik    and blinkplay.exe  delete them both

Now anything you play whether warband or even nw will start right away without the silly intros starting.

Over time imagine if you had done this a year or two ago, youd have saved about an hour by now.

Once again if you already know about this - dont hate, i know its not rocket science, but theres a lot of people who dont know about it and this is for their benefit

Love Betty
Merry Crimbo Happy Hanukah  X

Or...rename the files.

*While we crash and burn, small, low tech, agrarian societies such as the Hmong in the mountains of Laos will continue on without so much as blinking an eye.*

Hi,

I don't have the game so it matters not,however if they are renamed you get the same result and can use the files if you ever wanted to without reinstalling them.

Yes?

EDIT:

Is this worth d/l'ing?

RELEASE NOTES

From the creators of the popular Brytenwalda mod, Viking Conquest
is a brand new DLC for Mount & Blade Warband! This single and multi
player DLC brings Mount & Blade to historical Dark Age Britain
complemented by authentic scenes and cultures. The DLC features a
story mode with a complex plot, where choices have real consequences
as well as a standard sandbox mode in an all new setting, with expanded
options and controls. Online battling also takes on its own flavour
with special modes like Coastal Assault and Warlord

Living world that evolves around you, with historical and random
events, as well as the actions of the player all contributing

More than 300 new cities, castles, villages and special scenes to
discover, explore, conquer and plunder

More than 200 historical characters and 100 extra NPCs: Kings, Lords
Ladies, bards, priests and many others. Meet legendary figures like
Ivar the Boneless or his bother Sigurd Snake-in-the-Eye, royalty like
Harald, later known as FairHair, or Aelfred of Wessex

A story mode where the player will be part of a complex plot involving
political conspiracy, during the time the sons of Ragnar were leading
their Great Heathen Army through Britain. An immersive game style with
choice and consequence, romance, betrayal, moments of greatness and
ruin

A sandbox mode, the classic Mount&Blade system, where goals are
determined by the player, but with all the richness and options offered
by the new setting

More than 15 possible companions, with deep interaction and different
personalities. Sometimes their conflicts will force you to use cunning
and diplomacy

A complex religion system with two faiths, The Norse Gods and
Christianity, with monasteries, special NPCs and parties. Religion will
be a important factor in the game that will affect the player's
interactions even within their own party

Naval travel and warfare, a key feature to really make the setting
complete

Battles can range from simple robbery to massive naval conflicts
between huge fleets laden with warriors, all in dynamic battles where
you can pilot your own boat, adjusting for factors such as wind
waves, and weather

The option to build your own refuge, hire staff for it, and populate it
with the wives and children of your troops

Detailed siege warfare system, with options to reduce a defender by
hunger or morale, or by direct assault. With hard choices, plagues and
famines, coastal assaults

NOTE: Game is standalone and featuring also the Napoleonic Wars DLC
