Extract everything to the modules folder. Run from ironlauncher.exe within the Revenge of the Berserk folder.
If Ironlauncher absolutely will not run(and try running as Administrator if you are using Vista) then here is the workaround.



You need to download this patch as well to complete an important quest.
0.97 Adds many new companions, items, and kingdom management. Thanks to the new team for helping with this release. This is not savegame friendly with any other version

Included a new Walkthrough file in text format look in the Extra Folder[/spoiler]
To install just extract the patch to the mount and blade/ modules folder and it will overwrite anything that has been changed in the Berserk Folder. The old berserk mod folder must still be named Berserk

The main focus of this mod is combat and lots of it. Everything is geared to be faster paced. There is blood all over the place and the addition of the more metal sounds turns the battlefield into a loud viceral experience. Based on the Berserk Manga. As the Black Swordsman your character starts out stronger than any other mod. But enemy parties will also have rare elite troops that can rip through regular soldiers with ease and you cannot upgrade your troops to them. Human elites can be captured and persuaded but any apostles the enemy has will never be captured. This mod also has a large focus on a single story arc with scripted quickbattles as part of the main game, and an ending to the game. Though you can continue to play in sandbox mode after you beat the main questline. Wars are also predetermined for some kingdoms. Now including a full starting quickbattle campaign for a regular man or woman as well. With Foxyman's form ranks enemy armies fight with intelligence. I guarantee you will be surprised the first time a proper wedge of knights crashes through your ranks and keeps on going rather than get tied up in your troops.
The Team:
[Berserker Pride]scripter, general assembly, some of everything
[Percus]modeller
[Barf] modeller
[Wei.Xiadi]texturer
[Death3ye]tester
[Zenla]tester
[MorrisB]Troop trees, companions, and lore.
[€hr¡s]New map!
The Factions:
Kingdom of Midland
Most Balanced Faction. Heavy Knights, Good Crossbows, and most pikemen of any faction

Kingdom of Tudor
Tudor has almost exclusively mounted units. Some are somewhat poorly armored but an all cavalry force is powerful.
Heavily armored crossbowmen at last tier and mid-tier archers.

The Kushan Empire
The Kushan are very powerful. They are the only Kingdom with two elite units. The bare-chested spear throwers and the very tough Daka demon.

The Holy See
The Holy See has a varied force. Their most powerful are the heavy armored Holy Iron Chain Knights and the Holy Iron Chain Infantry. But the Balden Swordsmen, Morgar Light Cavalry, and Walatorian Fighters all fill out the ranks.

The Alliance of Paneria
The only troops of the Panerians are the city-state Rahna's. The other two cities employ powerful mercenaries. Rahna units are the only ones who use firearms, but it's balanced so they are not a perfect shot and won't 1-hit you. But with many halberdiers and glaives they will be tough in sieges. Their only Cavalry are mercenaries.

The Sixth Faction
Their will be one more faction at some point in the game, but I don't want to spoil the surprise. Just know they will be badass. If you see a bunch of white armies running around on the map don't pick a fight. Not recommended to fight them with anything other than fifth tier and elites.


New Seventh Faction
The Beast of the Interstice are monsters of fiction. Many different troops of different sizes from the massive and almost invulnerable cyclops to the exceptionally quick Evil Pirkaf. All are very dangerous. Not recommended to fight them with anything other than fifth tier and elites.

Eighth Faction
If you aren't Gutts he will form a kingdom at some point in the game. From there he can be your ally or enemy. He will be deadly in autocalc and battle alike. He relies heavily on powerful two-handed swordmen but is also one of few factions to make use of guns.
