What works

All the single player content

In summary what I did is start a new game finish the intro quest and get into fights with looters for an hour or two, before cheating to try out sieges and starting a new country as well as maxing out charter stats. Everything worked as expected, there where no crashes and no audio or graphical glitches, performance stayed consistent even when maxing out the battle sizes and the graphical settings.

What does not

Some textures have parts of them set to transparent mostly results in helmets being partially see through.

The game starts in windowed mode and there is no option to turn on fullscreen.


Some textures have parts of them set to transparent mostly results in
helmets being partially see through using winetricks to install dxvk
solved the problem.

The game starts in windowed mode and there is no option to turn on
fullscreen, opening rgl_config.txt located in
/user/documents/Mount&Blade Warband/ and changing start_windowed = 1
to start_windowed = 0 starts the game in fullscreen.

What was not tested

Multiplayer only started a new game never connected to anything

Hardware tested

Additional Comments

Mods work just download and install them by copying them to the modules folder then select them in the launcher.

Most of the mods require the Warband Script Extender fortunately many of them come packaged withe the WSE and need no more work to get to work if the mods don't contain the WSE go to  the following forum thread download the WSE and the v1.174.exe, extract and copy the files in to the warband install directory and use the WSELoader.exe to start the game instead of the mb_warband.exe

First-person view works in wine 2.13
by Daniel on Saturday August 5th 2017, 4:43
I just upgraded to Wine 2.13, and first-person view (R key) is now working without issues. Everything else still works as before, so now the game is indeed playing perfectly.

Still didn't try modding it, though.
Does not seem to work with wine 2.0
by Richard Thier on Tuesday March 14th 2017, 14:04
I could make this game running with wine 1.8 very well. It was playable on my very old rig when I changed graphics settings to very low, but it started even in the directX 9 mode. Now it seams that this is not working anymore and in the directX7 mode (which at least start) most of the textures are bad. The background pictures of the menu are working, but text is scrambled. Also in-game textures are not showing except some of the very basic ones like the icons for the shield / weapon.

Terrain seem to have only vertex color, units are completely white.

Please fix this... it is an awsome game and it have been working earlier...

PS.: I had to use winetricks in wine 1.8 to install dx9 native libraries. After the update to wine 2.0 it seems these are still installed. Is there any chance I have to redo something? It seems right...
