Question: Would it be simpler to add a sword to Armoured Sergeants? I'm going to try to create the unit above for the French on my own until I have problems or one of you writes back

How do I change the current A/S with this version of Crossbowmen as a new unit and renamed.
I thought if I replace the current French A/S with the textures for the Crossbowmen, and then in EDU adjust their stats to make them better at melee, and then make the sword their primary weapon and remove the crossbow that would be all. Then I just want to make them upgradeable to partial plate.
Any ideas there Ishan?
OK this is just an example but the EDU for them would look something like this (for France and England though - the name is just a sample and is French for Men at Arms.)

In order to change the weapons of a unit you need to change both the model and the unit entry in EDU, as well as possibly the textures for the unit as well, though that you can probably skip just by swapping the primary and secondary weapon on the model and disabling the secondary weapon in EDU.

Excellent. Thanks Squid, I thought it would be a bit more but that would be interesting to see wouldn't it?
I just realized that it might be easier to use the model of the Norse Swordsman in place of the crossbowman. They already have the sword and shield, the only thing is the patterns on the shields are a bit, "Norse." Still they are exactly what I'm looking for.
I'm guessing I could replace the "armoured sergeants" with the norse swordsman texture models and rename them accordingly. Would I be right? Will they automatically have the correct uniforms (colour schemes) of each faction? What about the accents?

Has anyone besides Gigantus looked at the files i posted earlier in the thread? If you havn't and your reading this, please take a look at them and see if you can find out what is wrong. If you need more information on what is exactly wrong you can briefly read the posts by me, Ishan and Gigantus leading up to it.
I still have riderless Lancers!!!

Here you go it's working now and with proper textures and sprites.
Spoiler Alert, click show to read:
The unit is available to both France the true owner and England as well. You just need to add them in the grand campaign via EDB file and give them it's unit cards.
I think i am going to cry now. Ishan, idk what is going on now because i used your files and launched the game, went straight to custom battle, set up lancers (England) vs a random unit from Scottland, started, and still no riders. I dont know what could b wrong anymore. Maybe it is something in my settings clashing that is obscure and unusual, which is y it works for u and not me??? Idk
If i reinstall the game will i have to redo all the modding and file altering again???
Sorry but i can't understand what you are trying to achieve.
If you want Crossbowmen to be like Norse swordsmen that is something can't be done just with text editing.
Just tell me one unit and what you like to do with it that is copy stuff from other existing units etc and i will give you exactly that.
I also have patch 1.2 installed, (obviously if i unpacked it) will i have to reinstall the patch after reinstallation of the game??
idk if this helps, but the general unit (when attached to the lancers in a custom battle) appears just fine on his horse. its the acutal lancers, the rest of the unit, that dont appear.
MAYBE BECAUSE ITS ON SS6.3 & NOT ON M2TW I don't know, but without it for me it crashed..
a simple comma would make so much difference
