    Please be aware of your versions!

    Usually version updates for BCP only add functionality but due to significant changes to the Bannerlord code between 1.7.1, 1.7.2, and 1.8.0 you need to use the correct version of BannerColorPersistence.

    Bannerlord 1.7.1: BCP 1.2.5
    Bannerlord 1.7.2: BCP 1.3.0
    Bannerlord 1.8.0: BCP 1.3.1     This version also requires Harmony to be installed as well! Make sure you have the latest version of Harmony too!

    Do not run the standalone BannerPaste mod alongside versions 1.2.5+ or you'll likely crash. As noted in multiple places, the BannerPaste logic has been moved into BCP thanks to gooboon giving me the go ahead.

      Please move the discussion off this stickied post. Report as a bug, include a list of all mods you're running and their versions, as well as the version of Bannerlord you're on. If you can also provide a crash report via something like Butterlib or BetterExceptionWindow that would help as well.

    With regards to the configuration option: allowColorChangeOnIconsMatchingBackgroundColor

    This option was specifically added for people looking to allow the banner background color changes on their complex banners. It's not a perfect solution and your results will vary depending on your specific banner. The key logic assumes that any icon matching the background color is being used as a "blocking" icon, i.e. an icon only present to overlap portions of other icons to make them not visible. Those icons matching the background color will be changed to match the new background color, hopefully resulting in a banner which shows your complex design with the new background color.

    If you use this option and experience problems, feel free to post about it and provide before/after screenshots and your bannercode and I'll see if I can work on improving the logic.

    So, how do you fix the white/neutral color uniforms? Every clan has their own unique banner everything looks good on campaign map but the troops only have white/brown colors.

      Depends on how the custom banners have been added, but generally it's because whatever mod you're using hasn't declared specific clan colors. If you go into the spclans file you can define Color1 and Color2 for each clan.

    I don't know how but using this mod with the Eagle Rising shields they all turn black instead the color that i'm using for my banner.

    Anyone know a way to still use this mod and fix this black shields ?

    EDIT: I copy and pasted the banner again, save the game and load the save that for some reason fixed the problem.

    I have used this mod with many iterations of Bannerlord and it worked well but I'm running into a problem on the current version (1.0.0)
    My banner shows up correctly on the campaign map, encyclopedia, kingdom overview and in battle but it doesn't show up when I visit my town or castle. For example, in the lord's hall, there is a weird generic empire banner with an eagle on it instead of my own banner.  And this goes for all the banners decorating the outside areas of the towns/castles.

      That's definitely a weird one lol

      Mind providing some screenshots and your banner code for me? Also, are you running any other mods?

    Hi, would this also work for NPC lords when they are given a custom banner with colors different than the kingdom color? Would there be a way to do this?

      Yep. There's a config option you need to set as described in the mod description: preventNPCBannerColorChanges

    I don't get a zip file on download I get this https://i.gyazo.com/f3ceef083ede0f2074813528759320bd.png which can not be opened with zip. Also I have no ideal how to install it even if I did get the zip. Does it go in the Module area?

      The file you've downloaded is a 7zip file. I provide the mod in this format because it bypasses the issue with locked dlls that many people have. The details on how to unzip it are included on the files page where you downloaded the mod.

    Any way to have the npc clan banner colours to show on their troops? For me they all look neutral except their shields and only troops under the player are coloured.

      What exactly do you mean by neutral? By default, only the player character's clan keeps its clan colors so all NPCs should adhere to their kingdom colors. If you'd like to change that you can modify the preventNPCBannerColorChanges config option to true. HOWEVER, last time I checked some of the NPC clans did not actually have any default clan colors so some of them end up as just gray or no color (perhaps that's what you mean by neutral?). This config setting is most often used in conjunction with other mods that provide custom banners/colors for NPCs.

      Yeah I have preventNPCBannerColorChanges set to true. I'm talking about troops led by NPCs.
      ?HOWEVER, last time I checked some of the NPC clans did not actually have any default clan colors so some of them end up as just gray or no color (perhaps that's what you mean by neutral?)
      Yes, that's exactly it. I use custom banners for some NPC clans and some use vanilla banners that I haven't touched at all but their troops' colours remain in that grey/no colour "tint" so to speak in both cases. Is there a way to circumvent that so that so that the clothes/armours are coloured again?

      Not really. Your best option is to ensure those clans have actual colors set for them. How are you setting the custom banners for the NPCs? Are you using a mod or just doing it manually?

      Through bannerlord.party, or through the banner editor from bannerlord itself if it's a banner that's simple enough. I just paste the code in banner_key in my spclans.xml. But the fact is that even vanilla clan banners that I haven't touched have the same no colour problem for their troops. The only troops that have coloured clothing are troops (often militias) when they're not being led by any lord (basically during a village raid or a siege), so they use the culture colour I assume.

      Yea it doesn't matter whether you've done anything to the clans or not, if you've set the preventNPCBannerColorChanges option to true then all NPC clans will use their default configured CLAN color rather than kingdom. The point is that many clans literally do not have a configured default color in spclans. You could manually go in and add color and color2 values to all those clans missing them and it would likely fix things up, but it would be a bit of work probably considering how many are missing.

      Oh, I had no idea you could manually add the color and color2 parameters to clans. If that's the case I'll do it. Thanks man!

      Yup, no problem. Some of the clans in there have them already so just look through it for examples. You'll still have to do it again, probably each time the game updates and overwrites the file but it sounds like you're used to that already.

    {

      "preventNPCBannerColorChanges": true,
      "allowColorChangeOnIconsMatchingBackgroundColor": false
    }

      I'm not quite sure what you mean by change the NPC banner in the kingdom. Could you describe with more detail exactly what you're doing when the crash occurs? Also, include any other mods you're running and versions of everything.

    Hello, I am hoping as the mod author you might be able to help me out but I completely appreciate you are likely busy, so any input would help.

    Basically I'm running into an issue, everything seems to work fine but when I made a new banner which I was very happy with which uses the "checker" background option from the tool and I paste this into the editor screen it seems to only display one of the background colours, turning it from a checker pattern to a plain black and of course, ruining the design. It doesn't seem to have any issues when pasting in banners not using one of the 2 checker backgrounds. Do you have any idea what may cause this? I am running 2 mods outwith your own I would imagine impact banners, being CBU and Better Settlement Icons.

    Thanks for any reply you can give.

    EDIT: It's also worth noting I see the chat below re. updating the mod, but it has been working well for me aside from this minor issue. Is there other issues currently?

      Regarding other issues, there are a couple open bugs I'm investigating that are possibly related to Harmony updates or version mismatches. 

      Your problem sounds familiar, did you post on Reddit about it too? I tried the checker background myself and it seemed to work so I'll need a little more info from you. What version of Bannerlord and BCP are you running and can you provide the bannercode as an example? Also a screenshot could be helpful too. Thanks!

      EDIT: So.... After like 2 hours yesterday I gave up and asked here today. And whilst f***ing about, I have fixed it. The background was set for "mirrored" which was the issue... I do apologise for wasting your time! Thank you for the mod!

    Amazing mod, I love it dearly, is there any way you can update it to the current version?

    Also I don't know if this is a glitch because it is out of date, or its just part of the mod, but when I invite clans into my faction their unique banners disappear into my faction's solid color (purple), with no design at all. It's just a purple square, sadly.

      Update will be coming soon. Have a couple mods needing updates due to dependency changes.

      Regarding the color of vassals, it's been an issue I've been battling against lol. Every time I fix one example of it another seems to pop up, so I'll take another look at that too. The problem is that your custom banner has the layers and colors set up such that the game sets your primary and secondary color to the same color. So when a vassal joins the sigil and background get set to the same color. You can tweak your banner to have two unique colors but could require some trial and error.

      Thank you for replying so quickly, and it was exactly what you said with the banner. The way I was able to fix it, is by making my background color larger, instead of using a layer to do that. That layer was technically "behind" everything else, but it was preventing my vassal's symbols from showing. By eliminating the layer and making the background 2000 by 2000 I was able to get the same effect, with the banner, while still having my vassal's symbols appear.

      Thanks again!

      No problem at all, glad to hear you sorted out a workaround for the time being while I hunt down what I can do in code!
