I remember playing that one long ago on easy. Thing with wc3 campaign is that it easy leaks, you are meant to defend, and in fact you are able to own everyone and wait for timer to expire ;)

Hi, i find the -load codes are very annoying - i seem to get them wrong now and then and i need to retype the whole code, is there no way to do it with copy and paste?

The codes for the last few levels don't seem to work.
And they're so long because you're saving 2 heroes and some other data.
Heres what I suggest doing with the codes.
#1 Print screen the page,
#2 Minimise and paste it into paint,
#3 Open note pad and type in
#4 Then select and copy it ready for the next level
That takes about 1 minutes top, and if you leave paint open you can double check it if its wrong.

it's basicly not much more than the campaing map for 2 players, but it was really chalanging, even on normal level and made a lot of fun.

gave a 4/5 rating, because it is mainly just a nice improvement of 1 of blizzards campaigns. But if you got some spare tme with your friends and do not know what to do, I highly recommended to you to play these maps.

I and my Friend are playing your Campaings what you have made. They are really nice and the new abilities are pefect not imbalanced.
When we played we found a bug ---> The upgrades for the Riflemans and Mortar-Teams are until upgrade 3 and you need the upgrade Castle. I don't know if the bug is the Castle or the upgrade.

All other Campaigns was ok but this was some too easy ... maybe could you add some more units which attacks at the end before Uther's units come.

I played this with my friend and I noticed a weird thing with the second player's town gold mine. It's extra far and it took like 10 peasants to have an efficient peasant-train, and also I noticed they were returning the resources to an invisible town hall or something o_O

Other than that, playing this on insane was really fun but challenging as well. Took us two tries to beat it. But how the hell are you supposed to stop that caravan?? We were on the verge of dying at every wave, let alone kill that giant group of aboms/meat wagons.

There is a bug in the insane version of this map, which throws your town hall sideways and messes up the resource gathering.

For quick dirty fix:
Open map in editor, open triggers, navigate to "Extra Triggers -> Setup Insane" and just above the
  • Wait 0.10 seconds
action add this one:
  • Unit Group - Pick every unit in (Units of type Return GoldLumber Dummy) and do (Actions)
    • Loop - Actions
      • Unit - Remove (Picked unit) from the game

Explanation on what's happening:
There are invisible building dummies that allow you to use each other's town halls and lumber mills to gather resources. Here when the game tries to remove the Keep and place a Town Hall, it finds the invisible dummy in that location, fails to place the Hall and quickly finds a new place for it.
There is a check that checks for Insane mode when placing the dummies, but the relevant code bit is executed when the map loads (before you get to choose the difficulty) so the dummies are always placed.
The dirty fix, which I've suggested above, simply nukes all dummies (which is perfectly fine, as new ones are created with the new Town Halls anyway).
I suppose a "proper" fix would be to put the dummy creation somewhere after the player loads or starts a new game (instead of on map init), but I'm lazy and this works :p

(attached the map with the fix applied for the people that are even more lazy than me)

In Humans 05, me and my buddy are unable to build blacksmiths, workshops, or arcane sanctums because building them requires "default string".

The map is still bugged. I think updates made the town hall get displaced again. Pls fix cuz as Player 1 the loong waiting on gold rly makes the game impossible to play :sad:
