Yes, that's normal.
The next version of SS_Setup.exe will include a button to launch the game.
franch cavalry "men at arms", the pic in desc page(right click) shows that they ride mail horse, but actually bard horse.
Completely new to SS but I think I have found a bug. I just downloaded 6.3 via method 5 on the "Guide for the hopelessly lost", followed all the instructions :
On move one, English campaign, Early Era, VH/VH - just checking around settlements:
- In Caen (Wooden Castle) It says "2 free upkeep companies" - 2 units of Fyrd Spearmen are free (shaded blue, says "free upkeep while garrisoned" or similar when I mouse over unit cards)
- In Winchester (Wooden Castle) It also says "2 free upkeep companies" - there are 2 Fyrd Spearmen, and 1 Levy Archers, BUT none are free?!
- In Nottingham (Castle) It also says "2 free upkeep companies" - there are 2 Fyrd Spearmen, and 1 Levy Archers, and ONLY the Levy Archers are free!
I realise that there is some strange system of free upkeep that applies to some militia in cities and some professionals in castles (could someone explain this to me btw?) but WTF is going on with the above?! It makes no sense at all!
Yours completely bemused,
Units can only be free upkeep if the settlement can recruit that unit.
ahh touché - thanks but is there somewhere I could find out n00b info like that? I have searched the forums looking for a comprehensive guide of all the new features of SS but cant find one anywhere, do you know of one?
In further developments, I installed the version which has "up to fixes 3.3 installed" and just tried to install the file "fixes 4.2" over the top with disasterous results, now nothing happens when I try to load up the game... any advice for this further n00b error?
There's no comprehensive guide of SS forums AFAIK. There's a couple of threads that sum up the most important stuff, though.
After installing the Fixes, have you run SS_setup.exe? If not, do so.
Going off now, so if you have any further questions, someone else will have to answer.
any pointers to where they are? struggling to find them - massive n00b I know...
thanks for all the help, will keep trying to get it to work
Oh, another thing I have noticed is that years seem to change every time I press end turn, when the scenery clearly goes from winter-summer-winter. Presumably each turn is supposed to be 6 months?

I'd just would like to know if anyone can tell me how or point in in the right direction as to modifying the edges of the coasts on the campaign map? I ask because fleets keep cutting corners or skimming over islands (or cutting across Crete and elsewhere). I want to fix it. What program do I need to have to do this? I've never modded the map before. Much appreciated.
here(mapping section). Open a new thread there.
You need GIMP etc to open up .tga files and need to modify map_heights.tga, map_ground_types.tga & map_regions.tga file according to it and then delete the map.rwm to see the new changes in game.
You will find detailed help there.
Right.. after Fixes.exe has been installed the SS_setup.exe no longer works.. it says "Not enough campaigns or core files missing!
The game does start but there is no early era campaign in the single player list for example and most of the pressable buttons says "please select an item from the list" when pressed.
Im attaching the system log in the post.
Kingdoms is at 1.5 version, its not the steam version and its not located in program files.
UAC is off, read only is unchecked.
Operating system is Windows 7 64bit
For the record the same thing happened with Meneth sub mod thingy aswell, when I installed it (without this Fix file).
And what is even weirder to me.. vanilla SS6.3 works just fine, iv reinstalled many times and re downloaded the files too.
Cheers anyways guys, awesome mod. Been playing SS for over a year, never had so much trouble before with any version that I couldnt have found an answer in here somewhere .

I have played SS 6.2, and I got back into medieval a few days ago. But I found myself not being able to scroll in and out of campaign maps and battles. Any idea? I've searched around and some people got it fixed by playing a new file, but that isn't the case for me and even in custom battle I can't scroll.
Well that did the trick, so again the problem was behind the keyboard.
1st. did clean install (yet again)
2nd. ran SS6.3_installation_patcher_v.2.5.exe (from Bane's signature)
3rd. ran Fixes 2_5 (from Bane's signature)
4th. ran Fixes 3_0 (yet again from Bane's signature)
and all works.. even installed meneths sub mod thingy (not from Bane's signature) on it after these fixes.. and perfect.
Weirdly enough the last patch Fixes 3_2 isnt still working, it brings another kind of CTD issue, but no matter. atleast those other things worked .
Once again thank you for your help, and thank you for the mod that in its awesomeness forced me to try and try again to make it work and finally even seek help to make it work.
