How To Add WSE2's Persistent Kingdoms To Steam?

Here is how to do it without steam:

Create a shortcut for mb_warband_wse2.exe inside your WSE2 folder with right clicking on "exe" and selecting "Create shortcut" from the appearing list.

Rename it to "Persistent Kingdoms".

Right click on newly renamed shortcut and select "Properties" from the appearing list.

There should be a "Target" section under "Shourtcut" tab.

Add "--module Persistent Kingdoms -no-intro" after the quotation mark. Now it should look like this (for my case it is in my Desktop): "C:\Users\user\Desktop\Warband WSE2\mb_warband_wse2.exe" --module Persistent Kingdoms -no-intro

Here is how to do it with steam:

Go to your steam appliaction and click on add a game button that is at the left bottom of the screen

Click on "Add a Non-Steam Game" and select the WSE2's exe we have in WSE2 folder

Now browse mb_warband_wse2.exe in your library and right click on it and select properties.

Rename it to Persistent Kingdoms (or whatever you like).

Add "--module Persistent Kingdoms -no-intro" after the quotation mark. Now it should look like this (for my case it is in my Desktop): "C:\Users\user\Desktop\Warband WSE2\mb_warband_wse2.exe" --module Persistent Kingdoms -no-intro

Is It Possible With Other Modules?

Yes. But If your module changed shaders to a different way, you have to delete the shaders or demand the module's WSE2 shaders otherwise it will crash!

For native you just simply copy and paste your original Native folder in to your WSE2's "Modules" folder.

Remember you have to make a bat file or shortcut for it too.
