Re: Invasion from the Unknown - stuck

Pretty sure that center area has a hidden touchplate, from the scenario code these seem to be the locations of all the touchplates:
3,22
14,10
35,8
35,12
34,14
39,16
38,17

Check if you hit each of those spots.

Re: Invasion from the Unknown - stuck

Just posting to say I started the campaign two days ago, finished it last night. Awesome campaign, a lot of special attention went into that thing, that's for sure.

Re: Playing with terrains

The link took me to the stuff regarding the "terrain" tag, which I did do. I filled in values wherever possible, even if its just to declare certain things as "false" even though that appears to be default. The map works until I replace any tile with a "Y9" string (i.e. my new "deck" tile) and the t...

Re: Playing with terrains

I've had some problems with terrains myself. I put a new terrain I made (wooden deck of a pirate ship) in the images/terrain folder, and then entered in a line like the OP did in terrains.cpg, but the game will not recognize the terrain, and the map just won't work. More wierd than that, I try putti...

Re: The High Seas (Naval MP Scenario)

Awesome, you're really working yourself hard getting all these changes in place. ps if I'm not mistaken, you need to add a "side=&side_number" in the check to see if a flag ship is there, otherwise it will only check if -any- flagship exists, not just one on your side. Edited to add: Besides the shi...

Re: The High Seas (Naval MP Scenario)

Sounds good regarding the make new captain thing only working with level 2's and 3's. As far as the whole "discourages boarding enemy ship to kill leader" thing, I don't think it presents too much of a problem. Ideallly most people won't be able to trounce in and kill the leader without killing a lo...

Re: The High Seas (Naval MP Scenario)

Can always insert a [message] message= _ "Well, it got here." [/message] right after [command] and see if it even gets to that by testing it in game? Only thing I can think of off-hand is something wrong with the transport ship? I assume it only pops up when next to a transport ship? what if next to...

Re: The High Seas (Naval MP Scenario)

I'm thinking of messing around and modding this. The mods I have in mind are: (1) Somehow a surviving unit becomes the new captain when you lose your captain (i.e. via player selection, or random). (2) Being able to buy/steal a new flagship (i.e. buy with gold, or if not enough gold, you can attempt...

Awesome campaign. I dig playing the dark side, though you don't get to play as a Lich for very long except for that looping campaign. I'd like to see the campaign extended to go even longer.
