Own video, text and sound Messages in Scenarios.

Recommended Posts

Sorry for my bad English. I hope, that a Stronghold Fan

write this Tutorial in better English.

 

Your can make own video, text and sound effects

in your Stronghold Scenario. This is great, when you will have

a better gameplay atmosphere in Stronghold Scenarios.

 

1.1 Theory over the Messeage

 

The Message is great and amazing, when you will

have a better atmosphere in the game.

 

Remember you're the original Stronghold Mission,

and the LOTR Mod for Stronghold. The Mission have own Sounds,

Video and text effects in a Mission. Your can better to narrate a Story.

There are a potential where in Age of Empires 2.

 

1.2 The action "Text Message"

 

At the first, your must make a Text Message.

 

1. Download and start Tsearch.

2. Start Stronghold and load the Stronghold.exe in Tsearch.

3. Start in the Editor a Stronghold Scenario, with the year January 1066.

4. Set as effect for the year "Wolf Sleeps".

Now see the picture.

All Messages in Stronghold have this format. You can make new Messages, but there must in this

Format. Before you make a new Messages with Video and Sound, make a Messages in the Category "Briefing" with the value 03, because your must select the Message in the Editor. :)

Use Radgametools for Movies

Make your own Bink Video with Rad Game Tools. A typical Stronghold Video have the Width 128 and the Height 128. Scaling your video of this mass. Make a new .wave file and then to the last step, the subtitle.

When you want Sound in the Videos, the Compression Level from the Video must are 104 and not 4.

A alternative

The Sound File are too big?

You can use Golden Wave or a another Program to convert the Wave with IMA ADPCM. After the compilation is the .wave not so big.

 

Hex Rechner

A good hexadecimal Computer: http://de.selfhtml.org/helferlein/dezhex.htm

 

.mlb is the abbreviation of Movie, Listen and Briefing.

 

1.5 A Briefing for a Mission over the stronghold.mlb

Important! You can't make a letters or Symbols in the Description Tool from

the Editor in your Scenario, because the Briefing from the stronghold.mlb else not run.

Lord Stronghold only wanted to remind us about this matter, and indeed there is a possibility that someone wanted to do something with that, and that he didn't find the time back then.

 

There is me for example, I still have something to do for Stronghold Europe, the Crusader mod which I really like, but I just can't back together with myself these days. :| On the other hand, there are moments I give a rest, and I could spend that time doing something good for the community. :)

Sorry to hear that. Still, I do have to say that you have brought it close to perfection. :) Of course, there are things which you would like to do some time, but from perspective of a player, it is a great mod already, and one wouldn't change a thing there right now. :)

 

Thanks you for bringing us this mod! :)

This is a volunteer forum. I understand you may want comments instantly (after all who wouldn't), but folks may not always have the time. They come on the forum when their times, schedules and whimsy dictate. A bit of patience is all :)

That doesn't justify needlessly bumping a thread. If what was added was relevant and wasn't thread bumping for the sake of it, it would have been a different story, as you say.

      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

      I have made a dozen scenarios earlier and had them published on another stronghold site. How do you feel about relaunching some of them here? I know they have to meet certain standards, but I'm confident that at least a handfull of them are, if not all. I've played (Stronghold and) Stronghold Crusader (SC) since release, but nowadays I find it more amusing to create content, than to play it. It's mainly to add more to the download section of StongholdNation, but also because I can't see myself d

      Hey guys, check out this video. https://youtu.be/560UuJstw6k   Several days ago we were discussing about the engine they used to use for Stronghold 2. After 4:15 they even say few things about the engine. Apparently it they picked some engine, and they made a lot of changes into it. I thought you might find this video interesting cause we were mentioning the engine recently.

    • Where can I find hard scenarios for SC2 ?

      The crusader trail is way too easy, and even taking on 7 Wolves is too easy/repetitive on most maps. I absolutely LOVED Micha!'s Crac de Chevalier, Minas Tiris, End of the pig rise. Does anyone know where one could find pre made scenarios like that ? Would totally pay a few bucks for quality content. Thank you.?
