Status Report: 9.6 Micropatch Today
today, a new micropatch did hit the game. Its size was cca 19 Mb and despite its western designation ("first April patch"), its content is tied to the Stronghold mode - some undisclosed fixes or modifications of that mode were implemented.
Please note that this micropatch does interfere with some mods (not sure which, but issues with XVM were reported). If the game crashes or locks whenever you attempt to enter or exit a battle, please remove all mods and try turning them on one by one to find out which mods exactly are causing the trouble.
