    Ah, I too have encountered the levy archer bug, makes for an interesting experience
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 



    Anyways, since I'm making this post I might as well chip in with some other stuff. Being Norwegian, and a fan of Norwegian history I jumped in, and started a Norway campaign - I'm having a lot of fun, and what comes below is mostly nitpicking. I might come across as negative, but that's merely me trying to be precise about the points - overall I very much enjoy the mod.

    My biggest issue is with the two units you'll use the most early game. Drengjar, and Viking Drengjar. Drengjar is norse for youth, and is used in Danish today (Dreng=boy).
    However:
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 

    They have the same description, and very similar names- a viking youth is apparently quite a lot worse than a normal youth. I think it'd be a lot better if one of the names were switched out, and a different description provided for preferably both. I'm a bit of a history buff, and the mod reflects the overall theme of the Norwegian army at the time being farmers, the so called lei­angr.

    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 

    Huskarlar is already plural, and thus the Huskarlars in the description is uneccesary

    The Vei­imenn are described as being unable to fight an being awful in melee, yet their stats are better than the Viking Drengjar, who are cited as not to be underestimated.

    I'm not fluent in all the mechanics of the game and how things are supposed to be, so by all means correct me if I'm wrong. However, upon building an Archery Range one unlocks the Gestir. But if you upgrade the Range to a Marksmans Rage, the option to recruit Gestir is removed, and no new units added - Why is that?

    Since we're going all out on historical accuracy, I should mention that there is no evidence or sources of Dragon Boats having ballistas on them (Yes, I know it's the vanilla description, but I thought I'd mention it)

    The landevŠrnmenn are spelled differently in the unit name and description, I'm not quite sure which one you want to go for. Anyways, LandevŠrn means "land defence". I'll here bring in what I mentioned earlier - the lei­angr. (Leidgang in more modern Norwegian). Leidgang was how the Norwegian army was raised. All farmers had a duty to serve, and that was called Leidgang. Thus, I think it's better if landevŠrn, although appropriate (but not historically used) could be replaced by lei­angr.

    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 

    Swede or Swedish

    Skj÷ldborgsmen have a few typos in the description, "Norses" and "ofr" (Norse and for)


    Now, I see this comes across as a tad nitpicky, but I thought I'd go all in - If you'd like it, I'd be happy to write some new (better?) descriptions for the Norwegian unit roster. Cheerio!

    Thanks for the tips KA.

    Regarding the Norse rosters (Norway and Denmark), I've already a few ideas. Let me put things in order and I'll PM you

    Default Crushader States no icon/flags

    So after v 0.9.5 the Crushader States have blank textures for flags in both campaign map and on field. I tested it /reinstalled it and it seems to be a problem

    Ok so i reinstalled the game now , it seems Crusader States, Zengids, Seljuqs and Fatmids have no banners in my game, both on map and in battlemap. They have blank squares and blank flags. I reinstalled the game 3 times now, using bot 0.9.3 and 0.9.5 and is the same

    Hello. Today we are gathered here to do battle. Regretable, isn't it? but sometimes, you know, life is like that. You have to do something that you don't want to do, just because someone is telling you to do it. I didn't want to be here myself, but then my mother told me that I'd better make a reasonable show of it all, so here we go then...
    Today we fight against monsters - the Gauls! They are dangerous, mad and hairy beyond reason. In victory, they are always heartless.

    @ Nemesis2345, no need to create threads for issues. That's the purpose of this one

    Now, regarding your issue, I'm pretty sure that the mini-mods you tried to install previously are corrupting SSHIP install. I'd suggest first to remove the whole SS game and to re-install again SS6.3 + SS6.4 + SSHIP.

    @ Bosphoran, I've move your post here as this is the right location for it. I've almost missed it where it was previously
    Unfortunately, I'm not familiar with the M2TW Steam version. I'll try to help anyway
    Have you tried to launch the game after SS was installed and before to install SSHIP?

    Nah it was worse. I basically installed 6.4 and SSHIP without first installing SS 6.3 . I installed them correctly now and it works as a charm. NOTE HOWEVER: The muslim faction boost minimod and Faction Specifics pros and cons minimod are giving me error and cant be installed. The other ones seem to work without problem . Anyway, the problem was my incompetence and im sorry for bothering you with that.

    I return with some new/old bugs that were unresolved.

    1) Templar Heavy Spearmen are using sword animations instead of spear animations
    2) Hashashim Mercenaries cost 370 gold instead of 3700 i think, anyway is way cheaper for a mercenary troop of that caliber (elite infantry btw)
    3)I keep getting Antipope trait for one of my cardinals even though im not excommunicated. HOWEVER i only get as a message box and in game the cardinal does not get the trait physically, i just get message boxes every turn that he is antipope ...
    4) Some armies get stuck in Jerusalem area after a Crusade, they cant seem to find their way home and will die of old age in a spot next to the coast . Can be fixed with move_character however.
    5) Abtal Cavalry has no icon (they have the peasant from rome1 as replacer icon)

    Thats all i could find, hope it helps

    Yes I launched SS6.4 to see if it's working, I didn't start a campaign though. Then i followed instructions how to install sship 0.9.2, when i start the game, it shows stainless steel 6,4 with knight picture behind, then CTDs. I 'm sure there are people who have installed over steam succesfully

    When you said that you saw the knight before the CTD happened, were you referring to the pic below?

    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 

    If yes, try to re-install SS 6.3 a,d 6.4. Check that it works.
    Then extract SSHIP in a temporary location. You should get a "data" folder. Then merge that "data" folder with the one located in your SS folder.

    No difference other then the executable (medieval2 instead of kingdoms) which is easily solved. That approach is included in my installation guide for Stainless Steel.

    this might not be something people can answer here but ill put it out there. i tried changing the cost of buildings in the data files and i must of f'd up some of the coding. beacuse now whenever i play a campaign all my cities will say "motte & bailey nicea" or "large city constantinople" instead of just the name of the city. same goes for my generals. example "general king rodrigo" instead of "king rodrigo.

    fyi i use steam. so im hoping anyone who uses this know where to go and correct this.

    thanks
