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...............

      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

      Hello everyone, my name is Krarilotus and today i want to invite you to take part in my AI design contest, which still runs until the end of October this year!   First i want to say a bit about myself. I ve been invested into Stronghold Crusader since back when i was a kid. I started making AIV files for the game in 2009 and was active on Stronghold Heavengames until Christmas 2012. I even had a little bit of online gameplay experience, when i joined the ?RQ Clan when it was founded, but i never

    • Binary format of Stronghold and Crusader maps

      Is there any information available about the binary structure of maps for Stronghold 1 or Crusader, besides instructions on how to change the troops color?   I'm going to try to create a program for generating map templates (custom sizes, custom starting height, perhaps even landscape from heightmap). However, I have absolutely no experience in analyzing binary files, so any relevant information could save me a lot of work.
