This is bad, because AI lords wouldn't build the same castles after each restart, so not all of us would fight under same conditions. Also, you didn't say what settings should we choose - give them 8,000 gold, or..? Maybe it would be better to pick a Crusader Trail mission, but even then you don't know if the player wasn't using any other types of troops. Still, regarding my last statement, I do not expect from anyone from here to do something dishonorable like that.

Give them 8,000 gold, yes.

That's why you need to send in a save too ;)

Well, yeah, I forgot about that - you can see number of trained troops, number of troops killed by your enemy, and number of players troops in the moment when the last enemy is dead, so you would be able to notice if there was a group of units which was used and disbanded at some point.

I almost forgot to submit my victory. :P I won it few days ago. I hope there will be others who also tried to win this one, it was pretty interesting indeed! I hope to see some other changes like this - you could do similar in Stronghold 2 as well! Only I would suggest for this to be done a little bit differently - you could provide us a save file, and we would just load it, restart it, and we would all go through same issues. I mean, in general, it does matter which strongholds AI lords build. :) Only in this particular case it was almost the same, and of course - even if you make an invasion scenario, it's not the same after each restart - for example, invading armies could once attack from north at some moment, and after a restart it may attack in that same particular moment from south. This doesn't make anything harder, only less predictable.

Ahh, congratulations EaglePrince.

 

This looked like a very nice mission and I would have loved to take part in it (and give EaglePrince a run for is money).

Alas, I was afk for most of the week and very busy for the last couple of days.

 

Well, such is life. In any case, I am looking forward to more missions like that.

Thanks, Chris! :)

 

And, yes, Nigel, it would have been more interesting if you were taking part as well, but yes, hopefully there will be many other interesting missions such as this one.

 

Chris, I hope you could give us a mission to defeat William (or Williams) using only archers, swordsmen, and laddermen. :) William should be with fixed castle made by myself and by Doomsword, and it could be another combination, such as pikemen instead of swordsmen, etc...

      As some of you may know, there are two versions of Stronghold 2: the Standard edition and the Deluxe edition. The standard edition patches to version 1.4.1, however, the Deluxe edition patches to version 1.31; and it requires a special Deluxe patch. The good news is that this patch was included on the DVD disc itself of late releases of this game (I have a late release which includes a 1.31 patch right on the disc; alternatively, the patch can also be downloaded here: https://www.patches-scrolls

      I was recently playing Stronghold Crusader 2 after upgrading my hardware and it has made me want to play stronghold crusader even more. Which reminded me of stronghold knights and a lot of their old stronghold content from Stronghold to Stronghold 2. I was wondering if anyone either had any copies of the many skirmish maps for crusader that were once part of SHK before its downfall.  This is a real shot in the dark but i was wanting to use the maps for old nostalgia as well as to store them

    • Problems with links to Stronghold Nation

      Hi, I have seen before that I have some issues with Stronghold Nation links, but I wasn't sure was it about SHN or about the browser or email client. Now I figured out what was the issue. When you give us a link like this:   www.strongholdnation.co.uk/downloads/file/367-a-kings-game/   sometimes it loads the link without "/" at the end (like this: www.strongholdnation.co.uk/downloads/file/367-a-kings-game ). When the page loads without the "/" symbol, error 404 shows up.   I still don't know if
