This only works for the Steam version. I can't do it with the Amazon version, therefore I cannot run my game on launcher, resulting in many script errors.

What did you do? I have the Steam and Amazon version, but if I use the Steam version I have to change my CD key every time I start up the game, which is why I use the Amazon version.

I bought mine from taleworlds.  All I did was add the launcher to steam as a non-steam game, and bam, it works with the overlay perfectly.

Well it asks me every time I use the launcher whether I want to use the Steam or non-Steam version.

Try deleting the mount & blade registry's and re-click mount & blade warband on steam for it to recreate them.
Type regedit into the windows search. Current user, software, MountAndBladeWarbandKeys. Don't know if that will help lol.

I have win 8
cRPG starts with steam but only in launcher
After clicking 'Play cRPG' it stops working with steam :(
I'm playing with WSE2

running crpg/steam as administrator done nothing

found crpg_beta.exe but I can't add it to steam because its not running without launcher

I even tried running without WSE2, but its not working neither

so, after playing with the crpg launcher for 2 years I was like "I need those friggin ingame hours for epeen".
I just took a quick look into the mnb-Folder and realized - not for the first time tbh, since there have been like 3 patches of the main exe in the last 2 years that didnt affect crpg - that wse doesnt use the mb_warband.exe thats tracked by steam, but instead the mb_warband_old.exe.
so you can actually just delete (ofc make a backup first) the mb_warband.exe and rename crpglauncher.exe (if its in the same folder, the main warband folder) to mb_warband.exe - until the next warband update that is.
or disable autoupdates on steam to stay save.
well, atleast if you dont play any other warband mods and never touch singleplayer again...

so yeah. dont ask me why I didnt think about that earlier, its just too obvious tbh

tl:dr: if you're fine with just playin crpg and want crpg hours through the launcher to add up on your warband steam epeen, rename the crpglauncher.exe to mb_warband.exe (if your launcher is in the main mnb-folder

edit: I actually just got my first steam trading card for mnb by launching crpg, so even more epeen...
edit2: it also screws with crpglauncher updates, so rename back and forth for those...

Same for me in xFire so I tried around and made this working again:
(click to show/hide)

//edit:
Just noticed: when u use the upstanding version to get crpg playing with mount&blade:warband on steam u have to use a different path and exit so I updated it in case for this here.. (english sucks, yeah sry for that it works so be happy).
