      I really want to thank you for the version backups you've made for us.
      It seems like no one else dared or cared to.

      Do you know how to make the AI check if its ally is dead? I'd like to have the AI be more aggressive after its ally is destroyed and send more units in attack waves.
      1. Tommi Gustafsson
        Tommi Gustafsson
        Maybe count all living units of that player and see if it is 0?

      2nd melee contest poll started, in the link you can (if you wish) download all the maps from the zip file, see them all and rate what do you think are the 5 best maps. If you donĀ“t have competitive melee knoledge, is okay, you can use other criteria like: enviroment, effort, map shape and others. The general public opinion is important to define 20% of the final score https://www.hiveworkshop.com/threads/melee-mapping-contest-2-poll.308814/

      Hi Tommi Gustafsson, How do you make your imported mp3 sound/music datas work on 1.30? Because the new patch broke all my imported mp3 sound datas in my map (the mp3 datas are just not played anymore). Will it be fixed in future or do i have to change the paths of the imported mp3 sound datas (i have read something about that) or must the datas be imported again? Here is my map:

        So you also have these problems with imported sound datas? Could you solve it in your maps or do we have to wait until imported sound datas work again?

        No, all our mp3s are working fine.

        Could you just write me what paths you used for the mp3s? There must be new requirements for imported mp3 sounds since the last patch because before the patch all my mp3s worked fine and after the patch the datas are not really identified by the editor anymore.

      Hi Tommi, I just saw that patch 1.30 broke the movies I use in my campaign so I've been trying to find a solution, and I saw that you posted that custom movies need to be placed inside a campaign file and encoded into VP9 CQ AVI with a separate sound track. Now this seemed simple enough at first, but I actually can't figure out how to render a video in this format. I've been using Sony Vegas so far for all my video purposes, but I can't say I know too much about video formats and all that so I'm having trouble figuring out what VP9 is, and I didn't really find any simple enough solutions on google. So I'm wondering, how did you render your video in this format, what kind of program did you use? Thanks in advance!

      Hello Mr Gustafsson. I am writing here because it seems you are the only other person who is using 1.30 + world editor in relation to campaigns. I was just wondering if from your experience with the patch released 3 days ago (1.30.1) if there is any corruption effect on maps saved with the version. The bugs that are present in gameplay do not matter, since they will be fixed when a new patch is released. The main concern is anything about the world editor that actually changes the core of the map permanently, so that even if played on future versions it is still permanently corrupted.

      The 1.30 corruption caused a huge amount of time wasted, and I was hoping to avoid such a situation ha-ha.
      Thanks for your time.

        HI tulee! We edited the Gnoll Campaign with 1.30.1 World Editor and it seems to be working fine. Nothing has corrupted yet, so the bug in question has indeed been fixed.

      Hello Mr.Gustafsson. Long time ago when i played the dwarf campaign and finished it, I was very satisfied with it and the amount of entertainment it could provide. I thought it had come to an end for unknown since it was uploaded in 2007 and wasn't updated after that. And finally after the long wait which was worth it I have heard that the it's still not over and that's amazing. I also have acknowledged that you have made the Gnoll Campaign instead of making chapter 4 of the Dwarf Campaign and that's pretty awesome! For this, I thank you and your team for your hard effort and a lot of people including me appreciate that. However i have one question; Will you continue the Dwarf Campaign after you're done with the Gnoll Campaign?
      1. Tommi Gustafsson
        Tommi Gustafsson
        We already put on some effort to continue the dwarf campaign in 2016-2017, but we realized that the whole old god theme was quite much used up and it was very difficult to make any fresh ideas for it. Therefore, we decided to do the Gnoll Campaign and develop its story. For the gnoll story, we can more freely use our imagination, because it does not have so much storyline burden from previous chapters.

        The one on the Gnoll Campaign looks much better but it also needs a bit of polish. But, of course, only if you want. It's just a suggestion.

        Good good! Maybe you could colour the titles differently if you want as the text is mostly the same colour everywhere.

      Hello, I loved your Gnoll Campaign that you released! And Dwarf Campaign is obviously my second favourite campaign (after The Last Guardian, no offense). I hope you make the fourth chapter of Dwarf Campaign? And maybe continue Gnoll Campaign! Cause please do not stop!

        Tommi Gustafsson
        We are continuing the Gnoll Campaign, but it will take some time. I guess the next chapter might be ready some time next year. We have another project that we will do this summer and maybe start of fall, but after that we should have time to design the next chapter of the Gnoll Campaign. In the summer, we are also getting an intern who will concentrate on deepening the characters and background stories of our heroes, and therefore I hope that we have more interesting characters in the next chapter.

      Hey, so, I don't know why or with what are you updating the Gnoll Campaign but you should open up a thread in the Map Development forum. It's the rules. Unfinished projects stay there until near completion.

        As we discussed before, please do not mark the Gnoll Campaign bundle awaiting for update before you have spoken with Ralle. Today is the Labor Day and it probably takes a little more time than normal for him to send a message to you. If you are in a hurry for some reason, then please try to send him a message yourself.

        I'm not in a hurry. I'll leave it to pending until then if it means that much to you.
