If you are playing the greenskins (or norsca in my experience) when you defeat an enemy faction leader in battle, if you kill the faction leader in a manual battle, the confederation will not prompt.
If you autoresolve and kill the faction leader the dilema to confederate will prompt. This behavior is not consistent and should be normalized. Either killing them does not allow confederations or it does.
In my save file, I defeated and killed Gorfang rotgut, the leader of Red fangs in battle over the end turn. No option to confederate was offered. I then seiged a settlement right after.
To my understanding If i did not actually kill the lord, he would have offered to confederate. If i autoresolved and he died they would have offered to confederate.
version 1.9.2 (DA NUTZ ‘N’ BOLTZ UPDATE) Only mod active is one for skilling lords automatically, I havn't even used it yet, should have no impact on opening the file.
