What this does:

It makes all textures smaller and its a great thing to increase performance/ reduce lag/ crash in battle.

This will also massively increase the loading speed when you run TLD.

A must have for people who have low-spec Pcs!

textures size reduced to 1/3 from the original size of TLD.


How to install:

You need to have a program called Winrar in order to open the .rar.

Extract the texture folder and put it in your TLD folder, overwrite all textures if asked.

For non-steam user:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Mount&Blade\Modules\TLD

For steam:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Mount&Blade\Modules\TLD

1) Mirror:
Download Link:  (You need the cursor fix after you download or you won't be able to see your mouse at all)
http://www.gamefront.com/files/23044709/Textures.rar

Cursor Fix:
http://www.gamefront.com/files/23049037/Cursor+Fix.rar

2) Mirror: Mediafire (This one does not require the cursor fix, it is included, full package)

Medium-spec version:

Please do not worry about how long the download link will last, as long as people are downloading it, it will be alright.

Interesting. Can you post a few screenshots to see how that looks?

I'm now painting and drawing commissions. I'll paint portraits, pets, girlfriends, favourite characters..you name it. Send me a PM if interested ;)

I tried a while ago, but I can't play because the pointer is gone ....

Readme says:
Quote
You can place your textures in this folder
 and make the game read them by putting a
scan_module_textures = 1
directive in module_info.txt

What's mean ?

I do the same for Full Invasion 2 (otherwise the mod will be as big like 10GB), people barely notice the difference (myself as well), and it is hard to tell what has been changed.

You don't need to open the readme.txt, that comes from the Original TLD, just copy all .dds files and put them inside your TLD folder, overwrite all files, simple as that

Interesting. I might try this for my LP recording, as the performance isn't always great.

Beside I've got to say that your optimization is a real boost in TLD performance.
Well done, hope to see that fix directly in the mod itself.
Plz fix quickly, I can't wait !  ;)

That's unlikely to happen. We will support it as an official submod of course, it might even be packed into the mod's folder for players to use or not if they want to. With permission, of course.


Of course, as you wish.
It's possible to fix the flickering pointer too ?

Ofc, Feel free to do whatever you want Merlkir, our team owe TLD big time, i will release the optimization pack for each version to keep up to date with TLD :D

This looks like a great alternative for people who have weaker pc's yet still want to play TLD. Good job, Alex. :)


Is this a "thank you" from our part after using material from TLD for your Invasion mod? :P

Wow, that's just what I needed. Except that I can't download from Gamefront since they banned my country from their list...could someone PLEASE update it somewhere else? I would be really grateful.

EDIT: Oh dear...thank you so much!

Although I really appreciate the benefits of this optimization, I have to say that the definition of armor and clothing in general is too low and I think a part of the pleasure of buying new armor is to enjoy by watching them during the game.
Hope I do not get an answer, "then do not put the optimization and uses TLD as before" ....
