Order of the mods

Q. I have disabled this mod and my save data crashes in vanilla. What should I do?
A. You will need to reset the elements that utilize the functionality of this mod.
If you join the kingdom as a mercenary and use the features of this mod to create an army, you must disband the army before disabling this mod.
Because in vanilla mercenaries cannot be army leaders.

Q. How do I translate into different languages?
A. You can use "Localization_english.xml" as a template for translation.

How to create a translation file
+ Localization template file : PartyAIOverhaulCommands\ModuleData\Languages\English\Localization_english.xml
+ Copy the "English" folder and rename it appropriately.
+ Rename "Localization_english.xml" in the folder to an appropriate name.
+ Please change the value of "tag language" in the xml file to the language you want to translate.
   (The language displayed in the Gameplay - Language section of the game options.)
* The game will load the files located under the ModuleData\Languages folder at startup.
   If you change the contents of the translation file, you will need to re-launch the launcher.
* Please note that changes to the English text will not be reflected in the game.

Q. How do I use My Little Warband and this mod together?
A. Please refer to the following guide.
I can confirm that using My Little Warband (1.7) with Party AI Overhaul Commands Rebuild (1.7) does allow your parties to recruit your custom troops exclusively. Following these steps will cause any troops your parties recruit to automatically transform into your custom troops, regardless of what faction they recruit from*:

1.) Using My Little Warband (default settings), create your custom desired troops for both recruit and elite trees.
2.) Using Party AI Overhaul (default settings), after forming your desired party, talk to the party leader.
3.) Select > "Let's review your party's composition plan."
4.) Select > "Let's decide what troops you should recruit."
5.) Under "Available Troop Trees" hit the transfer all button until all the troops on the right are transferred to the left.
6.) Select > "Let's have a closer look."
7.) Do not change anything here. Select > Done.
8.) Finally, you will be asked if you wish to recruit from prisoners. Select > "No." (Choosing "Yes" will allow them to recruit looters. However, after testing, looter troops recruited by parties stay looters and do not transform into your custom troops. So Select > "Yes" if you don't mind having looters mixed in with your custom troops.)

For some reason, I personally have found that doing this any other way causes the party never to recruit anyone.

*Please note that this will allow only the player's parties the ability to recruit your custom troops. If you would like other AI lords to be able to recruit your custom troops also, then you will need to change the xml settings in My Little Warband.

* All - (very rare)If the crash occurs when you let the companion party attack enemies with the Left-ALT key, you may be able to avoid it by following the steps below.
  + Start up with this mod disabled.
  + Load a save that the CTD is happening to. 
  + Save game to a new save and shut down.
  + Restart the game with mod enabled and load that new save.
* e1.6.1b to e1.6.5 - When the kingdom you belong to is at war, the auto-reunion function will work. If you want to disband an army, use the "Disband Army" button on the army management screen.
* e1.6.0 only - Leave the number of troops limit at 1 (it will crash if you increase it)

* v2.4.13 only - The troop recruitment screen will start working properly after you hit the reset button.
