Being able to play Europe maps in Crusader and vice versa

Recommended Posts

I have created this tread only to let you know that one is able to play Europe maps in Crusader, and the other way around - to play the old Crusader maps in Europe. I haven't realized this by myself - Lord Vetka had noticed that he can run my Europe maps in Crusader. I never tried playing Europe maps in Crusader before, although I believe that I had tried playing Crusader maps in Europe, and that I had failed. One thing is sure - or I am mistaken, and this was possible from the beginning, or this is possible to do until the latest Stronghold Europe patch by Teutonen Ritter.

 

Anyway, if you do put your Crusader maps in Europe, there will still be one illogical thing - in some maps you will find some cacti or camels... For this reason I am planning to edit those maps so they would look more natural. On top of my list are some favorite maps of mine which were made within my family, and some of those great maps created by Firefly, such as Close Encounters, The River, etc... I expect I am going to be pretty slow in this, but I hope I will adopt at least some of those maps. I will be writing about my progress in this tread.

 

And, one more thing. Now when we know that Europe and Crusader maps can be played in both versions I feel need to thanks Chris again for giving us Stronghold Europe subsection in Downloads Central. Thanks to that we will be able to see which maps were originally created for Europe, and which ones for Crusader; and each map will surely look way better in the version it was made for. Besides that, we still don't know for sure if there might occur some problem while playing an Europe map in Crusader, and vice versa - we do know that it works fine on those several computers we tested it on.

 

Regards!

      Microsoft changed what the F1 key does: it pulls open the Bing browser (eww) and opens a useless help file. (why????) In the Stronghold Crusader AIV editor, F1 did a critical function: SAVING the file in progress. I believe Firefly was a bit lazy when they designed the AIV editor because they didn't think that anyone would be using it nearly 20 years later - the AIV editor does not have a save file button! Anyone know a way around this issue? Do I need to install Windows XP on my compu

      I have good news! :) One of the original fans of the mod sent the installation file. :) This is where you can download it from, but be aware, it is likely that your antivirus will detect it as a troyan. I believe that this is nothing harmful, and I will try it later. Right now I don't have the other PC of mine here, but I will have it tomorrow, so I will try it then.   Another issue is that they said it works with 1.3.1 version, so I am unsure whether this is going to with 1.4.1 version, but we

      Hey there, I thought this might be an interesting thread to have.   I shall start with the latest scenario Jacob's Ford submitted by Korsfarer Mogens. Jacob's Ford was supposed to be a stronghold near Jordan river. However, it was short-lived, because Crusaders there were defeated by Saladin. Korsfarer Mogens wrote much more about the history. In this scenario you are supposed to try to finish Jacob's Ford and to defend it against Saladin.   This is an interesting scenario. I tried it two times
