Looking good! +rep
how can i: 1) increase the number of soldiers in my units (not from game options of course)
2) build stone forts
3) unlock the unit roster of other factions for my kingdom and the opposite
4) have free upkeep in forts
5) increase and decrease my units' stats
without any mod?
I still have some 2.3 campaigns running, so I want to keep my 2.3 installation as it is and do a parallel install of 2.3.2 - but how to make the patch choose the intended mod folder if it only asks for the M2 directory?
Or should I rather duplicate/rename my existing 2.3 folder, then uninstall, reinstall a clean 2.3, and patch that one to 2.3.2? How to make 2.3 work with renamend mod folder?
You can just copy whole Broken_Crescent_kingdoms directory and paste in directly into mods directory - your OS will give it a different name automatically, e.g. Broken_Crescent_kingdoms - Copy.
Then just install 2.3.2. Installer will put the files into Broken_Crescent_kingdoms directory, so there you will have 2.3.2.
Now, if it comes to your 2.3 in Broken_Crescent_kingdoms - Copy, you'll have to edit bc_launch and bc_kingdoms.cfg - mod's path changed (it includes - Copy), so you have to update it in order to play clean 2.3.

i re-installed the patch and everything is fine with my cavalry.BUT now i have another problem,the music of the main menu it's not bc's but the chants of the vanilla version and also byzantines voices aren't mediterranean but enlglish and in general the music and the voices are from the vanilla version.what's wrong now?
If you have modified BC, I think you are the only person that may know what is wrong. If you lost the track of changes you've made then the easiest way is to reinstall the mod completely (by removing Broken_Crescent_kingdoms directory and installing 2.3 + 2.3.2).
Advice for the future: before you start to modify anything, make copies of files you want to modify. If you plan extensive changes it's best to keep a changelog.
Nice work, thanks! +rep
But one question left:
Why is Saladin just called "Sultan Yusuf"? His full name was صلاح الدين يوسف بن أيّوب الدوينيّ alias Salah ad-Din Yusuf ibn Ayyub ad-Dawīnī. But wait, i remember that i can change his name in the descr_strat file, right?
Just a quick question. I've started a new campaign in 2.3.2 with the Ghorids and noticed that the pictures for their royalty and generals are just the regular ones that come with vanilla MTWII. I seem to recall that 2.3 or 2.02 had actual historical pictures, or are those used only for certain factions?
