PostSubject: TweakMB (With Fire & Sword support!) [v4.00; updated 05.04.11]   Fri May 06, 2011 5:49 pm

    TweakMB: A Mount & Blade Tweaking Utility

    Mount & Blade tweaking made easy! TweakMB provides an easy-to-use interface for activating and modifying gameplay tweaks in Mount & Blade and Mount & Blade: Warband. This includes things such as modifying tournament bet amounts, village improvement build times, party sizes, and much more (see below for a complete list). You can make as many modifications as you want within the program, then save all of them at the same time.

    Using TweakMB is very similar to modifying the module text files manually, but TweakMB automates the entire process (meaning it's much easier and faster to use), and also reduces the chances of user error. The pre-release versions contain only a limited selection of tweaks, but the number of tweaks supported will continue to increase with future releases.

    -----> Download most current version here [M&B Repository]

    Installation
    Extract the downloaded .zip file to any location on your computer, then run "TweakMB.exe". That's it!

    You will need to have the .Net Framework installed, so if you don't have it, go grab it from Microsoft's website.

    What mods does TweakMB support?
    TweakMB will load any mod you throw at it, providing the appropriate text files are present in the folder. However, there are some limitations to be aware of. The program was designed and based around the default Native module (version 1.011), and all tweaks should be useable within the Native module.

    For user-created mods, it depends entirely on which mod you're tweaking. TweakMB will automatically attempt to locate the text file field(s) related to any given tweak. The problem is that many mods completely remove certain fields or add brand new ones, and this makes it difficult for TweakMB to "figure out" which field it needs to be looking at.

    Fortunately, TweakMB is pretty good at determining whether or not it's found the correct field. If it doesn't think it's looking in the right place, it will simply disable the tweak within the program (the option for it will be grayed-out). If a tweak is disabled, it doesn't necessarily mean it won't work for the selected mod, it just means that TweakMB can't handle it automatically (ie, you would have to enable the tweak by manually modifying the text files yourself). Support for user-created mods will also continue to improve with future releases.
