A downloadable mod

A mod that combines CK3 and MB2 mechanics.

Launch:

  • Specify the path to Bannerlord.exe
  • Specify the path to ck3.exe
  • Select language and maximum battle size in MB2
  • Play

How to find the path to the exe files of games:

  • Go to the Steam Library
  • Right-click on the desired game
  • Manage -> Browse local files
  • In the directory that opens, open the folder "binaries" for CK3 or "bin" -> "Win64_Shipping_Client" for MB2

How to change the position of the battle icon:

  • Right-click twice on the battle icon
  • The icon will go into edit mode and become translucent
  • Left mouse button - raise the icon up
  • Right mouse button - lower the icon down
  • Double right-click again to exit edit mode

Note:

  • In order for window switching to work properly, Display Mode should be set to Windowed or Borderless Fullscreen in MB2 settings
  • If you are having performance problems, the game is probably running on an integrated graphics card. You can check this by going into the MB2 settings during the battle and see the video adapter being used. If it is an integrated video card, you need to tell crusaderblade.exe to use a high performance video card in your video card driver settings.

This mod does not work for me. I am able to run both games at once but when I hit play in crusader blade, CK3 stops responding.

on the first launch of the mod its only asking me to specify the path for bannerlord and not ck3, then when I hit play ck3 just stops responding

I HAVE ORDER, COMMAND, SUMMON TO MAKE NEW VERSION CRUSADER BLADE FOR MB 2 BANNERLORD V.1.8.0 AND CK 3 V.1.6.1.1

This mod is a brilliant idea. it got me wondering though - how hard it would be to have a version for warband? given that it's a finished game and much older - which would probably make running it alongside ck3 less intensive on older machines (and allow for mega battlles on newer too). just curious if you entertained the idea. all the best!

hello, I am new to this page and mod. I had a few questions. First, does this mod replicate CK3 culture specific units, House Banners, and Knight’s armor  into the M&B battle?  Second, do you have to enter battle as your main character in ck3 or can any commander leading an army in CK3 be used in the M&B Battle? Third, did you incorporate CK3 Commander/Knight prowess into M&B Health, Strength and other traits?   Thanks!  I hope these questions help other new folks and I am looking forward to your response and enjoying this awesome mod. 

Pls can u update the mod? I love it and i can't play without

I congratulate you, it's excellent, if there were sieges it would be much better but I'm not complaining, when do you think the version for the 1.6.0 or 1.6.1.1 update of CK3 can be ready?

Soon

Can't wait! The game has become unplayable without this mod.

Yey!

NEED UPDATE SOON FOR CK 3 V, 1.6.0.1 AND MB V, 1.7.2

I WILL COMMAND ORDER SUMMON update CRUSADER BLADE new PUBLIC VERSION !!! AALLAAH UAKBAR !!!

(+1)

Hey, thank you for creating this amazing mod. the install doesn't ask me for the ck3 directory (only bannerlord) and when I try to click on the start icon after selecting settings after clicking on the battle tab it doesn't do anything or crashes. if anybody has any tips to get it working it would be much appreciated!

UPDATE NEW PUBLIC VERSION NOW!!!!

(+1)

battles not starting on mount and blade. I press the button on ck3 and it opens the bannerlord tab and gives me some options (max unit size, playable ruler, etc.) but the start battle button doesn't do anything. I've tried on 1.7.0 & 1.7.1 with no change. 

Am I doing something wrong?

I changed the version of CK3 and now the button works. However, It crashes when I press it

I COMMAND ORDER SUMMON NEW CRUSADER BLADE NOW

crashes when crusader kings is launched, how can I fix it?

What file do we have to edit to change unit type for men at arm regiment?

Hmm when there is a battle I always seem to be put on the opposite side that my faction is playing on. Is there a solution to this?

THIS CB MOD DOESNT SUPPORT FOR NON STEAM VERSION. I WILL COMMAND, ORDER, AND RESUMMON THE DV TO CREATE NEW CB SOON !

您好,我单击战斗图标并转到开始界面。单击开始按钮后,MB2 报告错误并闪回

我在第二次测试中使用了更好的例外窗口。显示的错误弹出窗口是在C / Mount & Blade II横幅中找不到日志文件

Hello friends. 

My ck3 game is crashing when i play the crusader blade app. My ck3 is on steam my bannerlord is on GOG. Does that matter?

Hello, I am getting most horrible maps every single time no matter Where the battles happen. no plains, just maps with many trees and mountains

Lol, I love those maps because you can create chokepoints with rocks and shit. However, I believe the map selection is relative to where you are, if you're in Russia, yeh, it's likely to be forest. If you're in Sahara, it's going to be empty dunes.


Actually, starting with someone like the Soininke, isn't that bad. I started with Irish and Ivar the Boneless with 6k troops holding Dublin is kind of a problem.

Now stopped working completely. Won't start.

Sorry, reinstall helped.

this mod does not work for non steam version CK 3 So ANY SOLUTION FOR FIX NON STEAMS

Uh, now I have a real issue with the mod. It seems to turn around the winner and loser in the battles :D I tested this few times, always the same result. Anyone else experiencing this?


For running the mod: Download from above, I have the mod folder in the "common" root folder under Steam. From there, I just start CrusaderBlade, then it says to run CK3 first, I start CK3 and then ALT + TAB or "Win button" + D to get to the desktop, run CB, it starts Bannerlord and takes you back to CK3. Then, when a battle starts on the map, after the initial skirmish (you have to let time pass a little, the troops won't kill each other, yet), you will see the axe icon which will take you to fight the battle in Bannerlord. There is also the option "Always play as a ruler" which I believe should be off. 


But can't really use it if I lose when I win :D

Ok, I actually saw on Discord that someone else had this issue. And that the mod should be achievement-compliant, which is great! The resolution was to switch sides with cheats, though, no other way? I'd rather have the cheat function off and take the result as it comes, although, there are few ways to get edge in Bannerlord, it's not outright kill'em'all cheat :)

would you give video at youtube how to run this mod well not crash to desktop CB_1_1_2_23 mod

Lemme see if I can manage something. You wrote above it doesn't work for non-steam, which I cannot test since I have Steam. I don't know how it would work that way, though... It is quite straightforward. You have to check that you aren't running any campaign mods or others in Bannerlord because that will likely break it (some, like battle realism AI are great with this, and bloodmod works, hopefully, soon dismemberment).


Then you literally double-click CK3, press play and once it is at least in the main menu view (or any other, you can go ahead and load a game or start a campaign), you can alt+tab out or have Crusader Blade running already and click "Play" on the small window. That should start Bannerlord dialog where you check that no additional mods are selected but all the main ones are (storymode, custombattle etc.). Then it eventually gives you a loading screen and throws you back to CK3 after which, you should be able to see the axe icon in battles.

It still does not work ! When Ck 3 Runs Then I run CB mod suddenly ctd then disappear that make CK3 Doesnt Responded HANG

(+1)(-1)

That's the way it's supposed to be. After that, Bannerlord should start. If this does not happen, then CB is blocked by some external application or Bannerlord is not a Steam version.

SO THIS DEFINITELY CB MOD DOES NOT WORK FOR CK3 AND mb 2 BANNERLORD ARE NOT A STEAM VERSION. I HOPE NEXT WILL BE SUPPORT FOR NON VERSION STEAM !

Somehow, now this works. I'm playing with a different Irish count(ess) but when starting with Ulster, it always would think that I am my opponent when switching to Bannerlord :D 


I encountered a bug, as well. I had a peasant uprising somewhere around modern County Kerry in Ireland and when trying to fight that battle in CB, it would always crash. I couldn't make out what was the problem from the report, but volcano, fire and something like that was mentioned in the stack trace. So, I'm thinking it might be a map problem, it happened every time and I might have the save game or report if someone wants to see.

I WILL BE COMMAND, ORDER, demand, and summon dev to fix crusader blade mod CB_1_1_2_23.zip!! URAAAA!!

Hi there, awesome mod. Just wanted to ask a question about army composition. I am having 300 bowmen in an army of 600 soldiers, from what I understood there should be half archer on the battle map but I always only have 1, is there something I am missing? thanks a lot!

NO RUNNING CK3 PROCESS WAS FOUND WHEN I START CK3, CRUSADER BLADE.EXE DISAPPEAR CTD THEN CK3 HANg DOES NOT RESPONDING MY CK3 and MB2 are updated all PLEASE HELP ME TO FIX THIS

(1 edit)

Hi mate, this mod is mind-blowingly good, it actually opens the way of thinking how you could play certain scenes in different "main games" or "plot controller" games with other ones that are specifically good in that area. Any possibility to support other than patreon (i'm not there, nor am I planning to be)?


Few notes: 

-Have you tried to ask from Paradox forums or support to add this mod to the achievement & ironman compatible list? Would be AWESOME :) You would have to recheck that the cheat mode in Bannerlord cannot be used in the battles probably.


- City battles / Sieges. They are the salt and butter of Bannerlord, please add, although I understand the problematics when the siege mechanics are so different in these games :)


- I'm not sure if the traits translate in any way? My superhuman giant titan berserker commander seems pretty "soft" on the field compared to my Bannerlord char... If this is by design so that one unit couldn't do too much alone, it's okay, but I cannot at least see any of the formation or party bonus traits when deploying. Do they exist? With prowess 50ish that seems to translate lvl 50 char in the battle would have insane stats in bannerlord for different formation bonuses. I guess you would have to differentiate between stats that help in leadership and those that make the unit just simply tough 1-1. I could help if you want like an array format or json from crusader kings to bannerlord skills? Not sure if it makes the workload any less but let me know if it would. 


- I guess this is under development but lacking items from the inventory (I guess the weapon, mainly), prevents some bannerlord combat mods from working (like dismemberment, pure visual mod as I understand). Unfortunately, I have to keep playing on 1.4.4 version since I took some expansion  by Oddy which would practically kill half of the characters due to poor traits if I remove it and it isn't compatible with the new version...


- Lethality doesn't work in the 1.4.4. compatible version at least. no one dies pretty much, is there a setting to fix this?

(-1)

And I want to emphasize for some people here putting pressure on modders like "well, that was a lie". You only have the right to ask if you pay for it, simple as that.

Thank you for the update on the mod! really enjoy it. when i try to do a siege as an attacker, a blue button appears with a red "x" through it. - i assume that's how you join a siege? i have catapults in my army but my question is, how do i play in a siege? I'm not able to click the blue button. does there have to be a certain fortification level to do one? thank you

In my game the red x actually dissapears but when I click it, it just pauses the game and nothing happens. plus, the game crashes a lot before joining a battle simulation! i love the mod but its very unstable for my game is this normal? how can i avoid it?

The red "Download" button not far above. BTW there is a channel on discord for Chinese-speaking players. I'm sure you will be able to get some help there. Simply head to discord (the link in description)  - scroll all the way down the channel list on the left - go to  "select-languages" - hit the Chinese flag emoji - and the channel will show up in the list, then feel free to ask in your language. Good luck!

Hello, 

Crusader Blade crashes as soon as I want to launch the game. However crusader king 3 is at update 1.4.4 and mount & blade II is at update 1.7.0. 

I also turned off my firewall and antivirus. But nothing, the game keeps crashing. I do not understand.

For information I run with windows seven, is that the problem or could it be something else?

The message I get when I launch the game is "CrusarderBlade has stopped working".

Can you help me please?

beginning to lose hope, you can tell us if you will not support it anymore but dont leave us hanging please.

(+2)

Have faith pal! Can't say for the dev team but based on what we have seen on discord they are already moving mountains to bring us the update. a couple of days ago we were told 'very soon', so I assume it should be out any second now.

Just saw you Post on the discord, does this mean it will be updated soon for the royal court?

(+1)

can i do this with warband?
