    Default M&B .960 or 1.003?

    Which is better? Ive heard mixed reviews of 1.003--better graphics, but more lag, and no ale morale bonuses

    I do enjoy the game a lot, but i want to know if i should indeed 'upgrade' it. If it means i cannot have my large battles without lag, screw it...

    Upgrade, it has better sound effects, better gui, and it actually runs BETTER for me with 1.003

    1.003 is fucking awesome and there's absolutely no reason to stay with .960, unless you're fond of some particular mod that hasn't been updated yet.

    It's much more polished and runs smoothly. Most people, myself included, see increase in performance if anything. New animations look great - huge difference between old amateurish ones (like in coughdarkfallcough) and the new mocapped ones. Combat looks much more dynamic, even if the mechanics themselves haven't changed. UI, music and sounds are now on pro level as well.

    Playing as Khergit, reclaimed most of the territory for the claimant, no bugs/annoyances so far. Sieges suck like before (just captured Tulga defended by 300+, was really stupid), but multiple ladders with better AI or trebuchets with destructible walls are too much to ask for an indie game I guess.

    Never group up with a retarded Dwarf; it's not big and it's not clever.

    They're working on the siege aspects in several mods, I think one actually managed workable trebuchets and destructable walls. So they can probably get it into either future expansions or sequels.

    As for the OP, I would recommend upgrading, alot of factions look alot better and the new animations once you get used to them looks really nice. I'm currently in a Nord game where it's Us vs The rest, unfortunately the rest outnumber us 4 to one and the bastards have gone hippie and started making peace with each other. But that only means that much carnage awaits Ragnar before he can stand victorius atop a pile of corpses.
