Important: This mod was made using the Kingdoms 1.5 patch. I would think that it works with version 1.4 but if you notice bugs, it is probably because it has not been patched to 1.5.

Attention: New version 4.0 Barons Alliance Mod has new how to work instructions. Please read notes.

I apologize for the battle CTD that was released with the BA mod 3.0. It has now been fixed.

I bring to you a mod that allows the Barons Alliance faction to be played in the Britannia Campaign. The Barons Alliance starts with the city York with two armys. I have updated this recently because it was much easier before to play the Barons Alliance, and steam roll the factions. Now it is much harder for Barons Alliance players and the campaign is much more balanced. Keep an eye out as I will be updating as things go along to make it better.:)

Unfortunatley, I wasn't able to get the campaign general and captain textures working, without a CTD because of a so called lack of video RAM, so I may release these models later. I know they work because they work for another mod but I can't get it to work right now.

Comments are appreciated.:beam: :yes:

As I am working on making another mod, version 4.0 will be the last one I make for a while.

This mod has many changes from the vanilla campaign including:

Here are some pictures:

Cavalry deploy to the sides of the lines along with spearmen, to hold the flanks.

How to work instructions

You will need to use the @baronsalliancemod.cfg line as I have now made it it's own configuration file. You MUST use that line if you want to use the new battle animations.
