Did you try running in DX7 mode? I've run it on systems way worse than yours and got at least 35fps on lowest.

Could you try to put the priority higher when playing? to do that follow this:



  1. Go to Windows Task Manager.

  2. Go to 'detail' (win 8) or Go to 'Processes' (win 7)

  3. Search for 'mb_warband.exe *32' and right click on it.

  4. "Set priority" and choose 'High'.


Let me know if this helped.

Nah, It didn't help. CPU usages tops when i go back to desktop and then decreased again it tops to 40% max and the graph doesn't show any usage at all max 10%

Actually, at high or probably normal priority but whatsoever it goes to 80 % or 90% in the graph but it doesn't really affect performance, usually 1 fps or 2 fps increases.

Have you this game on steam?


If so, you'll need to remove the compatibility mode from the Steam program so it runs in your native Windows 7 and Warband can access your RAM.


Hope this helpes.

My specs can run this beauty @ average 42fps with the modded drivers and software processing mode. All high, no shadows, Dynamic lighting on. 20 FPS on large battles (200) and 40+ fps on town's and medium sized battles. Must be at DX7 Mode!

As long as you have it in DX7 mode, about 40+. And your specs are way lower than mine. Yet i get 40+ mostly, except large battles. which drops to 20fps.

I'd guess you can, in some countries it is illegal to get high, but if you do it privately I guess it should be fine. hahaha, sorry just a joke. With your rig and the requirements of this game you should be able to max it or at least be able to play in high settings.
