You could easily add a note to the campaign name and/or description in the campaign menu which says that you need to get EoMa in case you don't have it.

Code: Select all

#ifnhave ~add-ons/Era_of_Magic/_main.cfg
<You don't have Era of Magic>
#endif

I am sure you won't be able to win scenario 14 (Far North) on this level of difficulty. Only normal level is balanced. If you have any ideas how to make other levels more balanced, tell me.

Sounds great, screenshots look amazing.

Spoiler:
My game crashed again after that scenario was over. Maybe the graphics are too overwhelming for the game engine at times... Still, this is at the top of my campaign list :wink:

EDIT:
Spoiler:
On the Mag-Magar attack scenario, there is a "loosed" in there... I forgot the context but I remember that it was misplaced.

Great campaign! I am stuck on Mag-Magar at the moment... I am not convinced that it is hopeless YET, but I am somewhat discouraged. I may start over... but regardless, lovely work!

I have decided to start over... I am currently doing the scenario Southern Nations, and I have just realized that the Efreeti you get in this scenario don't appear later on your recall list... do they? I should admit that I haven't been paying much attention to the storyline, so it is possible that there is a reason for this, but... it would be really cool if you could keep them. Also, if memory serves, you don't get to keep the lizards you rescue in a later scenario... also, is there any such thing as carryover gold in this campaign or do you start each scenario with a set amount? I know that most of the scenarios (at least most of the ones I've seen so far) have unlimited turns, so there is presumably no early-finish bonus, but you could get a flat % of remaining gold. I apologize if this is the case already and it has simply escaped my observation...
I'm not sure that any of these remarks are exactly criticism, especially since I am really enjoying this campaign, but they are my ruminations on the thing thus far, and as such may be useful to you.

You don't get the Efreetis :(
You don't get the lizards either :(
You do get carryover gold, however; unless they don't want you to (a.k.a want you to start with a set amount). You don't get early finish bonuses, of course. Just a 80% or 40% carryover.

I have almost died in the 2nd map in that siege of lizards in the sand (wtf a lv1 summoner upgaraded to the lv3 in only a map!!) That summoner was very very useful to survive (I got a heavy one, it gives magic res to your alies units).

I got the magical Scimitar 14-3 with my leader in that mision of exploring the ancestral's cave. I need to finish the map soon =)

That's right.

And they are. Keep posting them, if you find something else ;)

I friend has comment once about the campaing: the Rhami and the Summoners are that useful to don't recruit Cammels riders, Carpet riders or Water elementals because they must be almost totally useless.

I was thinking in his comment and I tought I was playing with only summoners and with some Rhamis only.

I used only the carpet riders and the Cammel riders in the 3rd map (when you help the lizards againist the barbarians) there was an anoying Cyclop Destroyer and slowing it was very very useful to kill it after and the cammel riders arrive easly to the enemies. But after that map, I did not used more the cammel riders ... after when the game started to be hard, I used only my high level summoners and after when I could recruit Rhamis I did ... but many maps with only summoners and I beated all those maps in the hardest level.

I could have died laughing when the saurian got clubbed across the screen :wink:

No errors so far, which I think is great for a campaign just recently posted on the add-on server.

EDIT: Major error - playing third scenario with orcs/cyclops vs lizards with me thrown in.

Game crashed during saurian/lizard/wyvern turn... just shut off unexplainably.

Stderr.txt says:
20101003 17:49:43 error config: Invalid alignment found for I8 fake_wave1: ''
could not make neutral surface...
I think I know what happened, make you sure to have ALL the TLU complements, they are necesary to play the campaign.

If you don't have a complement in a X map you will have a error and not continue.

Camel Riders are very useful for me - they can have a stronger melee (sometimes range) than novice summoners, and move faster. Carpet Riders are VERY useful for slowing and ZOCing. Water elementals heal +4 and are the only healing units, so I would not say that they are useless :wink:

The Rhami are only useful for what they level into later (or for picking up a secret item in a level I won't tell you), and their 4-4 attack which can sometimes be useful.

Also, you can summon rhami and elements adjacent to a summoning unit, which is easier than making them walk from a keep (if you are far away).

No, I reloaded campaign and worked fine. Temporary error, I guess. Besides, I downloaded from the full-compiled file on the first page.
