Mount&Blade With Fire & Sword is spin-off stand-alone expansion for Mount&Blade

While some may prefer Warband, With Fire & Sword brings post-medieval weaponry into the fray, where any peasant with a rifle can knock you from your horse and end you reign of carnage.  While armor and shields are still used on the field, you get a feel that they are making a last stand as the times change.

What works


What does not

Sometimes it is necessary to kill pulseaudio in order to have a good sound (I think this problems relates with wine+pulseaudio since every other program works fine)

 If I use directx9 i have sometimes (after a great battle) out_of_memory exceptions. Setting to directx7 solved it for me.

Additional Comments

Installed from steam. If you run over steam invisible font problem the easiest solution is to deactive dwrite.dll. Following steps are necessary: 1. $ winecfg 2. Libraries 3. New override for library 4. Insert here dwrite 5. edit --> disable Now when the game is installed try to start it. If you noticed a broken config menu don't worry - everything is changeable in rgl_config.txt If you have a slow GPU it makes sense to set to Directx7. Just change the 'use_pixel_shaders' and 'use_vertex_shaders' attributes in rgl_config.txt to 0. This forces the game to run with dx7. You will also have a bad performance if you don't set force_single_threading = 1 in the rgl_config.txt. If you have a optimus board (e.g. netbook with intel graphic+nvidia) you can either run steam with optirun (bumblee package) or primusrun (primus: primusrun is new and has some advantages. E.g. games like World of Warcraft run twice as fast as with optirun. But: Mount and Blade games are an exception. I have run into microlags so just use optirun to play it. If you have sound problems (e.g. missing or glichting sound) change the settings of pulseaudio (view for further details): 1. # nano /etc/pulse/daemon.conf 2. (...) default-fragments = 16 default-fragment-size-msec = 50 I didn't run over mouse problems but if you have one just take a look at other reports (warband and fire&sword are all the same engine). My system is: CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2670QM CPU @ 2.20GHz GPU: Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09) NVIDIA Corporation GF119 [Quadro NVS 4200M] (rev ff) Have fun!
