(Hosting thanks to Janus! Please don't break the Repository trying to download it! :P)

------

After 6 months we finally have a new version of Storymod Chapter 1. There are several bugfixes and changes that will hopefully benefit stability. It also has the latest version of Craftmod integrated with a few additional fixes. This will be the last version of Storymod Chapter 1 to feature additional Storymod content. It will be updated with new M&B releases (these will include updated Craftmod and Arena Mod versions), but bugfixing/patch support for Chapter 1 will end once Craftmod has been rendered stable in this new version.

As always, there are simply too many features to name -- you'll have to discover them yourself. I'd like to thank everyone who helped me make this thing possible, and I hope you enjoy playing Storymod. If you do, feel free to post your comments on the chat thread here.

However, while posting on the Storymod subforum, please keep in mind the following requests:
Do not ask for storyline help or information. It will go unanswered -- at least by me. Use KON_Air's FAQ/walkthrough thread for such things: http://forums.taleworlds.net/viewtopic.php?t=8912&
Thanks to KON_Air for making it.


I will only be answering real bug reports that are:
1) Not retreads of already fixed bugs.
2) Showing at the very least an attempt at grammar, spelling and being informative.

I will not act upon or reply to reports that don't even try to help me find what's wrong -- that, in fact, make it more difficult for me to find what's wrong.

List of known bugs is a little further down -- if you think you've found one, read the list first please.

Please note, you WILL still have to create a new character (or import one) for M&B to function properly with any new or modified version of Storymod. Otherwise wonkiness and crashes will result. I wish it weren't so, but that's the way the game works.

Here is a guide to exporting and importing your characters, by the noble fisheye:
