I wrote an Unofficial Troop Editor for Mount & Blade which allows direct editing of the troops.txt and party_templates.txt files and should be compatible with M&B versions 0.90x and 0.95x. This allows viewing and modifying the following information:
  • troop names
  • troop attributes
  • troop proficiencies
  • troop skills
  • troop items
  • troop upgrade paths
  • troop flags
  • troop factions
  • troop faces
  • party templates

Even if this is not used to directly edit the files this may be useful as a modding tool since it allows you the ability to easily review troop information which may be helpful in balancing the game. Also, please be aware that when modifying the troops.txt or party_templates.txt files you have to start a new game for changes to take effect.  I've done some testing with this on version 0.903 and 0.950 and everything seems to work fine but please let me know if there are any problems.  A screenshot and link to download is below:

Download Old Versions:
a few people have requested the older versions of this editor due to a problem running in Windows Vista (version 1.3 fixed this issue)
