Sending custom maps in stronghold crusader HD

Recommended Posts

Hello all!, I'm having a problem with custom maps. I have owned the original stronghold series since it's launch back in 1999 (i think). I bought Stronghold crusader on steam as me and my family were having problems connecting using the original disks and steam made it easy for multiplayer.

I made a custom map today as i had not done so in ages and if i remember rightly when someone who didn't have the map wanted to play you could hit a button and the map would automatically be sent to their computer.?

When two friends joined my multiplayer game the 'send custom map button' was not there,was this feature removed in the steam version?

I'm not 100% sure with Crusader. However, I'm sure?@EaglePrince will be able to help you out better than I can! I do know however that in Stronghold 2, the map automatically downloads for newly joined players. Perhaps the Steam edition took this approach?

 

 

As for your custom map, we'd love to all have the chance to play it! If you feel like sharing, you can upload your map here on SHN, using this link - https://www.strongholdnation.co.uk/downloads/submit/

Yup, that's approximately how it should work. You scroll through your maps, and when you're at a map you want to play with others, you press Send map (or something similar), and the others have to press Receive map (or something similar). They need to accept the map to be sent to them.

 

However, on some occasions I too was not able to send a map like that. Then we would all leave the game, and try it again.

 

I have to note that it is necessary for all players to have the same version of the game. If one of you have Steam version, then it is the HD. Then everybody else must have the latest HD version as well.

 

What versions do the others have? If they don't have the latest patch, they should be able to download it from the official Crusader HD website.

 

DO KEEP IN MIND that those who have older versions should be advised to backup their entire cfg files from Documents\Stronghold Crusader. Because after playing 1.4 this file would become useless with 1.1 and 1.2 versions. Thus if they decide to reinstall 1.1 or 1.2, they would lose their campaign and Crusader Trail progress.

 

Also, I don't have Steam versions of Crusader installed, but I believe they haven't removed this feature from the game. Though even if they had, you can send the file to your friends via Dropbox, OneDrive, Google Drive, etc. But I'm pretty confident that you didn't have this options because of some temporary issues, or due to incompatible versions of the game.

 

1.1 and 1.2 are compatible with each other.

1.3 is only compatible with itself.

1.4 is only compatible with itself.

 

If my reply doesn't help, and you have any further questions, do ask. :)

    • Need Help Running Stronghold 2: Deluxe Version 1.31

      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
