Unexpected but rather welcome surprise!

Thank you kindly, I will finish the rest of it when I get home!
I'm not normal and I don't pretend so, my approach is pretty much a bomb crescendo.
Death is a fun way to pass the time though, several little bullets moving in staccato.
The terror of my reign will live on in infamy, singing when they die like a dead man's symphony.

A very good start. Out of the tons of things to add, I chose one :

"Duel
These are never hooked up fully to the data base, thus while you will be able to use what your character owns as well as having your proper stats, you will not gain any gold, you will not gain any experience, and you will not suffer any upkeep.

The point of a Duel server is to practice one on one with someone. Some builds may work better in battle then in duels, and vice versa, but regardless it is a good way to practice.  Walk up to someone and press the “f” key to challenge them or to accept a challenge.

Remember not to "facehug" (see jargon section) your opponent (have a safe distance) when then duel starts. Most of the time, people come to the duel server for melee duels, and usually without shields. Stating when you want to use a ranged weapon is better. If you come with a horse, it is best to kill it when you don't use it anymore, as stray horses can bump everyone. For cav duels, try not to fight too close of infantry duels. You will block yourself and other duellers. Finally, many people consider that hitting someone knocked down in duel is a bad and despicable habit. In a more general way, try to stay as polite as possible. Rage is always badly seen, but it is even more true in duel, as you should behave like a gentleman. Consider duel servers as 5 star hotel casinos, and you'll be fine."

You may also consider adding a section listing experienced players that new players can PM for advice regarding gear, builds, tactics, or other topics that may require further elaboration.

I would be willing to offer my advice on any subject related to infantry and melee.

500 hours into this game and I just learned something new from this guide. Never knew you could zoom in and out on your character.

Alrighty, double posting not editing so people notice, but Section 0 now works for sure if you follow the updated steps exactly.

I will modify and update the guide more some other day when I am not irritated at Steam...

Re-worded guide, sorry.

I listed it as "buggy" as for a solution it does have a few small bugs, such as a slightly closer camera view, when compared to the alternative but much more time-consuming fix.

Again, re-worded.

But the fix is not buggy :) Warband is buggy.

But as a solution, it is buggy. :)

I could re-word it letting people know that specifically, it will still carry forward the patch bugs, if you wish.

Oh, and +1 for coming up with the alternative solution.

My game looks smoother anyway, the only thing is this camera, which behaves like in Fire and Sword.
Somehow I feel the game smoother,but maybe only Placebo effect.
Yes please, mention the camera problem, its slightly closer, nightmare for horselancers,
but  if you can get used to it while taleworlds fixes it, then its the best solution.
Nobody reported crash because of this. And its very easy both to apply and to undo!
So still you can try the other way. First try this! If ok, then use it.

The point is, that it makes the smallest mess with your system.

Why is there no "Hoplite" Class?
For while the fire in the heart of a single Remnant still burns... can Stratia truly have fallen?

Work in progress :p

Fixing the steam issue amongst a few other things has delayed me editing the classes page in all honesty. I may go about it a different way and be very general.

Additionally, the point is that if you make the quick method, you don't have to disable Steam auto-update on Warband,

and you will have the fix as soon as it released, you don't have to bother anymore about this thing!
When the official fixed cRPG is out, you upgrade it in the same way, as ever.
The cause, which prevented joining was in cRPG.
The wrong female-male models are fixed already (tw reported, I didn't check it)

Updated.

As for everything else, I will finish the classes on Monday, I just need to decide on which of my two drafts I like the best.
