I virtually never play sapper so cannot comment on that side of things, but I played for about two hours today for the first time in months and really enjoyed it. This was partly due to a well populated siege server with revamped maps, but also because of nice little surprises (because it is ages since I read the changelog) like healing and performance being better, the latter allowing musican and officer etc. bonuses to be active on large servers without it lagging badly.

Dev blogs 5, 17, and 18 are about NW. It's not as if this section has been something exclusively reserved for news on the development of BCoF, but rather as a place for all development news for all FSE projects.

Whoops  :-[ Sorry about that, I was unaware of it. Not sure how I missed that; I've probably not read every single blog but I thought I had looked at most of them, seems I was wrong. Still, it is disappointing not to have heard anything about BCoF in over 2 years.

@ Thunderstormer: I apologise for getting my facts wrong about the purpose of this sub forum, and evidently I was wrong to believe that they had finished with NW.

Without reading the title, I was mildly excited to see the first blog in over 2 years, but then bemused to see that it had nothing at all to do with Battle Cry of Freedom. I had heard about the NW patch a few days ago but assumed it was done by Taleworlds; I was under the impression that Flying Squirrel were long since done and dusted with working on NW- now it seems part of the tiny team has been working on a nearly 6 year old DLC for another game, and posts the info about it under the guise of being a blog in the same series as the previous 27 blogs which were all about BCoF. It is bad enough to learn that the very few members not working on Holdfast or some other venture were not all working on BCoF, but could you not have posted this NW update info in the NW section? It's like a bad joke putting it here, a kick in the teeth. It's not as if the NW part of the forum isn't regularly visited; the patch wouldn't have gone unnoticed there.

lmao, no amount of sarcasm or acting like its a conspiracy will be enough.

you guys asked for 60,000 euros, 60,000, still got 16,000, and with 5 years and 16,000 euros, all you could do was release screenshots and sound bytes. either you guys are the most inept retards on the planet , or you blatantly scammed us

I'm going to go with you are both inept retards + blatantly scammed us, because if you were smart you would have made the scamming seem less obvious.

what a  joke, I can't believe the members of this community haven't done shit about this but whatever, I wasn't here for that time so no big deal to me.

Wow, 3200 Euros a year to share between the team, I expect they've been living on yachts down in Cannes, right? Why, it's at least a quarter of what a single poorly paid person gets in a year, what a scam! You know, with such handsome sums of money to be acquired I am tempted to become a criminal myself...

in 2012 you guys announced the game its been 5 years
over a year since the last blog
to say oh you need to donate 200 euros just to get any screenshots or info, is ridiculous

can somebody saya whats  happening

has the game been cancelled?

i love nw, and i want to know is nw2 a reality yes or no. nothing more

I understand and empathise with the general point you are making, but you don't have to pay much to get access to the developer sub forum (aka any screenshots or info). Below I've cut and pasted what the first donation tier is and what it gets you:

Any Donation
Exclusive access to a special Sub Forum where you can actively take part in the development.

The next tier after that is 5 Euros (you get a thank you and a wallpaper), so 'any donation' could be a single Euro (or theoretically less, I suppose).

You can find the page the above quote was taken from in this link:

EDIT: I should also add, there haven't been any updates this year even in the donator board. There is a thread of screenshots and stuff called The Developer Shack to look through with plenty of stuff from early 2013 onwards, but the last update in it was in early December. So don't go expecting regular goodies in return for your money.

After 3 fucking years this game is now in Beta mode.

Wow, three years  :o...if only Battle Cry of Freedom was developed that fast!

Guys we got another 2319 - Negative Shitposter

Anything of interest happening in the alpha version? Just curious, since it is almost a full year now since the last blog. If you're not allowed to give any details I understand, but it'd be appreciated if donators like you could give a reassuring word that progress is being made and there is a promising game in development.

I was about to start an incredulous post explaining how it was nothing like KC:D, then I remembered I've often seen your posts over at the Melee forum  ;D You got me!

also horses cant really bump into eachother and stop eachother, they like bounce off eachother and keep going, not sure how I feel about this...

Looks good to me, seems pretty realistic- when you see horses converge like that in real life they sort of deflect off each other, much like people do. It isn't like there were any head on collisions, they were all at angles. In Warband in contrast, there would be no effect at all on one horse, and the other one stops dead in its tracks and rears, as if momentum and mass didn't exist!

3 - One thing I saw is that the battlefield was the same. On the video earlier and the stream today, the battleground was the exact game. I would like to see a sort of battlefield randomizer. I know that this could be hard to implement into the game, but if you could, it would mark out any repetativeness in the game.

I was thrown by this at first, but there is no reason to think they will have a few set maps rather than using a generation system as in Warband, and I believe I know why the map was the same. I wrote about this at TaleWorlds and will paste my thoughts here:

I was also initially perturbed to note that the battle map was the same or looked extremely similar in both battles, and the same Vlandian lord was fought each time yet in a different part of the world map. But I now think this was deliberately set up for the purpose of showcasing the features that they wanted to within the time constraints of the demonstration; they needed the player to find both a friendly lord to bring along to show that feature (subordinating a friendly lord to join you) and an enemy lord. So to make sure it could be done quickly and not waste time searching the map and avoiding other interactions, they set up the lords in these positions in advance. For the same reason they probably made sure the same battle map was generated regardless of world map topography (or else placed the enemy lord in very similar areas of Vlandian land to get a similar result) so that they could demonstrate the enemy lord selecting a steep hill to use as a defence.

People might want to check out the TaleWorlds forum; a nice forumite named Hirovard went to the event and made a video, from which he has already posted several stills. He also got a photo with Lust! I think he is planning to upload the video, whether it will be tonight or not I don't know.

Here is a link to the relevant thread for those who don't often visit:,249537.26985.html

I checked the TaleWorlds forum again and realised Captain Lust had stated something earlier; as far as he knows, he says, there will be a 20 minute slot for Bannerlord in the livestream. So we certainly won't see all of the footage live, but he also said the whole thing was going to be recorded and we would see it at a later date, probably one or two weeks afterwards.

@Sinjide; I wouldn't worry about the console port, I am not sure it has even been confirmed for Bannerlord. As I remember it, the brief mentions it had in interviews said that they were considering it,  though they have said Warband is definitely going to be on Xbox and PS4. Also Armagan has stated that if Bannerlord is ported to consoles it will be after the PC release of the game and development will not be influenced by the console port.

Some of you may already know that Bannerlord is one of the games being demonstrated at the PC Gamer Weekender in a couple of days. What you may not know is that at 16:00 GMT on the Sunday, there will apparently be a live stream of the Bannerlord presentation:

I don't know whether all of it will be shown or whether it will cover other games as well during the 1 hour slot that Bannerlord has, but we will be able to see something of the presentation which includes 40 minutes of live gameplay.

EDIT: whilst the PC Gamer live stream does start at 13:00, Bannerlord's slot in this stream is scheduled to start at 16:00.

Here are some snapshots of the console version (very large, you have been warned):

Seems like some docks of a village...
Seems like concept art of villages...
A warrior, carrying a katana...?

There was mention of Warband being ready for Playstation in the info that you linked, nothing about development of Bannerlord for consoles. Was it actually written in the Turkish magazine that these are console screenshots? In any case, they look great, thanks for posting them. The version here is higher res than the one I've seen posted at Taleworlds, and you can really see the horse bard better. I love the way that lamellar looks! By the way, someone on Taleworlds forum said that the round hilt of that Khuzait sword was of Chinese origin and spread across the steppe of Central Asia, so that explains the hilt.

And as such it is sad to see that most developers have stopped implementing split-screen multiplayer in games. Such a damn shame.

Indeed, I remember split screen multiplayer fondly, from games like Lotus Turbo Challenge 3 on the Amiga back in the early 1990s, to the demo of Serious Sam on PC a decade later. Playing over the internet or even over a LAN in different rooms isn't the same.

What makes you say it is a 400 vs 400 battle?

Don't know where else to put this  :-[  But here it is nonetheless

Off Topic would probably be the best place, but maybe an admin will move it. Still, the important thing is the Squirrel community get to join in the drooling and OMGing  ;)

There are more videos in the main Bannerlord thread at TW by the way. Looks great doesn't it?

Lets hope they add in lines that don't bounce off each other like they showed in the trailer, keeping shoulder to shoulder would be a pain.

I assume you are talking about the bit at the start of the siege section, about 1 minute into the video? Good point, though I imagine that only happens to NPCs as a way of preventing the player being trapped in SP (such as on a cramped castle wall). There is no reason to add it in MP and besides, how would the game decide which player gets nudged?
