This subsection is devoted to alternate patches and tools. The patches here might be useful for some of our visitors, but will do little good for the majority. As for the tools, for most purposes the tools available on the main page will be suitable for all editing needs. The tools provided here are alternate tools that allow similar functions to that of the tools available on the front page but may be a bit more difficult to use.

 

There are also some more interesting tools available that might not be all that useful in everday use, but could come in handy when tackling certain situations.

 

 


 

 

Patches

 

Knights and MerchantsAVI Video Fix
This small registry patch will fix problems where the game starts properly but when the videos are supposed to play you are only greeted by a black screen and the game eventually crashes with an MMSYSTEM296 error message. Do not install this patch if you don't experience this very problem!

Knights and MerchantsScreenshot Fix
Another little registry patch which allows you to take proper looking screenshots using the normal PrintScreen button. Please note that this patch will not work together with the Windows Vista & 7 fix as it changes the way the graphics are output and you will always end up with a blank screenshot or a screenshot of your desktop.

The Peasants RebellionWindows Vista & 7 Fix
This unofficial patch created by the mysterious engineering people at GOG.com allows you to play the game under Windows Vista and Windows 7 without experiencing palette corruption or annoying slowdowns. This patch is included in the 1.60 patch and in the GOG.com release. Note that this patch is unnecessary if using Windows 8 as the game functions properly on that system.

The Shattered Kingdom64-bit Installer Fix
This is a small fix that includes an alternate installation launcher which is 32-bit so that it can also be run properly on 64-bit systems. You might want to also read the included instructions to make sure that you use the fix properly!

 

Note that this fix will unfortunately not work on any Polish versions of the game as they use a custom installation program.

Tools & Utilities

 

Knights and MerchantsGraphics Reader 1.0.2 (The Barbarian)
Using this tool, you will be able to view all of the graphic files that are used by the game itself. The interface is very easy to use and even allows you to view all the graphics in a slide show. If editing graphics is not your thing, but you'd like to take a look at them nonetheless or just simply extract them, this is the tool for you.

Knights and MerchantsGraphics Reader Renamer 1.0 (JBSnorro)
This tool can be useful if you have ripped the game graphics using The Barbarian's Graphics Reader. It renames the file numbers to a more friendly format if designing some software of your own where you intend to use the ripped graphics files. Other than this, it serves no purpose. So unless you're cooking up some software of your own, you don't really need this tool.

Knights and MerchantsMap2Bitmap 16X16 0.7 (Lewin)
This tool takes a MAP file from the game and generates a bitmap using a tile size of 16x16. It could be useful if showing off a preview of your map or if you're creating a page for your campaign.

Knights and MerchantsMap2Bitmap 40X40 0.7 (Lewin)
Using this tool you can also generate preview map files from the actual game MAP files. This one generates bitmaps with a tile size of 40x40. Being in full scale, it has potential uses in e.g. mission editors that could load these as backgrounds giving a better overview of what exactly is going on when you're scripting.

Knights and MerchantsMap2Minimap 0.6 (Lewin)
The third tool in the seires. Using this one you can create preview images with the same size as the actual mini-map used by the game. That means that tiles are sized 1x1. Cases where it can be useful are pretty similar to that of the previous two tools. Can also be used for some experimentation.

Knights and MerchantsMini-map Preview 1.0 (harold)
This tool by harold allows one to create similar minimap previews as the one by Lewin. This one however also allows you to customize the colors that are used by the minimap which could allow you to have some interesting effects in use.

Knights and MerchantsMission Editor 1.0.5 (Merchator)
This tool is for those who like scripting and don't need much of extra graphical representations of things. It pretty much allows you to load DAT files and then decodes them on the fly. The editing itself is done in a text editor manner, so unless you fancy yourself as quite the scripting wizard, this might not be the most convenient editor at hand today.

Knights and MerchantsMission Editor 0.9f2 (Thunderwolf)
This tool is quite user-friendly in the mission scripting area as it has graphical representations of what you have scripted in your mission at the moment. It does not support reading MAP files directly though, so you will have to provide a bitmap image of your map in case you also want to see the map terrain while doing your thing.

Knights and MerchantsStyle Editor 1.0.1 (The Barbarian)
This editor was released back in the day and its purpose was to allow you to customize the main menu graphics of the games to suit your taste. It also allows you to save the menu graphics as combined style files for easy distribution. Unfortunately it was never much of a success as no style files usable by this editor were ever released.
