Beyond the Dark Portal (WIP)

Beyond the Dark Portal
Work in Progress Campaign


Last year I started working on a Beyond the Dark Portal remake. Unlike Helldoom's remake, which aims at a faithful recreation, I wanted to make it like if it was a Warcraft III campaign. With hero units and the Warcraft III gameplay (huge health, low damage, health regen) since I don't really like Warcraft II's balance. I managed to almost complete the first two missions and the gameplay of the third. What I worked on most was the heroes. Each hero has brand new abilities, that I am very happy about. In this campaign you will find 5 maps:
Prologue - Complete, though it could be improved slightly
Chapter 1 - Complete
Chapter 2 - Complete
Chapter 3 - 70% Complete, cinematics and gameplay triggers need some work
Test - A sandbox map with all units and heroes to play around and try out

Features

Warcraft II maps, but with Warcraft III gameplay and World of Warcraft lore additions
Cinematics based partially on books, but modified to match the Warcraft II briefings
Canon

What is canon in this campaign? Since I am using the mission briefings from Warcraft II, everything said in them is automatically canon, the rest will be changed to match them.
1. Mission Briefings
2. Novel
3. Map design/my own changes
Techtree is a mix between Warcraft II and Warcraft III
Unit Variations in later missions:
Grunt/Ghoul/Shaman
Spearthrower/Troll Axethrower
Death Knight/Warlock/Troll Shadowpriest
Red Dragon/Black Dragon
Heroes with custom spells inspired by WoW and Heroes of the Storm: Gratar, Grom Hellscream, Dentarg, Kargath Bladefist, Teron Gorefiend, Ner'zhul
Lore NPCs: Hurkan Skullsplinter, Fenris Wolfbrother, Kilrogg Deadeye (last one not added yet)
Custom items to find

    Well, that's what I thought until I was pretty much more than told that even a one map campaign should be approved.

    Alright. Good idea. Though it will take some time until I finish it. If I make a full release with just 3 Chapters, 2 Interludes that work as intentended, and I hide the Unit Tester will it count as a finished release?

    Be sure to use latest patch and be sure to put it in Documents\Warcraft III\Campaigns. If you are doing everything correctly then I have no idea what could be wrong. I have never encountered this problem with any campaign
