New Tutorial - Modifying Crusader 2

Recommended Posts

I've posted this on the main site under a tutorial, but since this helps people to modify the game files which wasn't possible beforehand, I'll post a link to it here: http://www.strongholdnation.co.uk/article/167-enable-viewing-all-game-files

 

This can be a help thread in case people need assistance with it :)

Great post, red it with interest.

 

For the mod I decided not to take any risks (graphics can be tricky) but it's good to see that it is possible.

 

Hopefully some artists stand up ;)

Glad you found this useful =)

 

I'm not an artist myself, but my future ambitions are to add buildings in from Stronghold 2/3 and upload them here as a mod.

Hello Wi3s31, and Welcome to Stronghold Nation!

First, it sounds like you may be having a problem with The Game Version being not compatable with your Files Extract (just guessing). What Version of The Game are you using? Where did you get The Files from?

 

Are you re-writing their "name File" properly? Hang fast though, we have some greater Experts than I who will no doubt answer you query. These are just a few of the questions they may ask.

 

Welocme again to The Nation...............

    • New Years Resolution

      New Years is right around the corner, so I thought that now would be a good time to post this thread. Do you have any New Years resolutions for next year? How have you done on yours from this  (soon to be over) year? For myself, I didn't set any this past year. For the following year, one of my goals is to spend less time browsing forums and social media, and instead, I'd should spend that time looking at and doing more productive stuff.

      I've posted a tutorial which tells you how to unarchive the game files from the '.v' format which they are in. This now means that modifying Stronghold 3 is finally possible.   To do so, you must download the following modding utility:   http://www.strongholdnation.co.uk/downloads/file/349-modifying-utility/   Here is the tutorial: http://www.strongholdnation.co.uk/article/195-unarchiving-stronghold-3-files   Let me know if anyone has any issues :)

    • Microsoft Just Killed the Crusader Ai Village Editor

      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

      Hey guys, a lot of good stuff have come from Germany, especially when it comes to Stronghold Crusader, and now comes another one. I don't know if other have noticed it already, but I have noticed it now. Here's the link for the Unofficial Crusader Patch. https://github.com/Sh0wdown/UnofficialCrusaderPatch/releases#user-content-Changelog   There you may see the list of changes, and I trust everything works great. I'm not going to use it myself because of multiplayer games, but this does offer wha
