VC localization is compatible with this mod, but many items have been changed and will display incorrectly.. so by default the mod is english only.

Required video settings
Antialiasing: 8x

HDR Mode: Off

DirectX only (doesn't work on GNU/Linux and Mac OS)

I highly recommend use SMAA Injector

Install SMAA Injector
Download and Install DirectX End-User Runtimes.
Download injectSMAA v1.2.
Copy all files from 'injectSMAA_by_mrhaandi_1.2\d3d9' to your '\MountBlade Warband' folder for install SMAA Injector.

If you have problems with InjectSMAA then try to disable Steam Overlay for Warband by right-clicking your Warband entry in your steam game list, select "Properties", and uncheck the "Enable Steam Community in-game" feature.

Delete d3d9.dll, injector.ini, SMAA.fx, SMAA.h files from your '\MountBlade Warband' folder for deinstall SMAA Injector.

This mod is based on the assets of the Viking Conquest dlc (see License).
Cannot use Dark Age assets in any mods.
