Die Hard v2.5b (boss-fights)

Submitted by Mails_PR
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.

[​IMG]
Overview:
This is a boss-fight RPG map for 2-8 players that offers a great variety of different enemies and plot lines. It's prequel, Abandon Hope, can be found here.

Author:
Mails_PR (in cooperation with Nemesis4322)

Features
:
-The most important feature is that in this map you always have a choice. Every round you can choose a different quest from different NPCs. Moreover, in many cases, there are different ways of defeating (or even befriending) bosses as well.
-19 bosses with different ways of fighting, befriending or defeating them!
-Different plot developments based on different storylines (which you can always access in your "Quests"). There are three endings in the game, based on your actions (good, neutral, bad)
That is, if you beat all the bosses in a bad way or do not abide by the rules of the quest, you get the bad ending; if you just kill the boss, it is a neutral way of beating them, so you will just get the neutral ending; if you make an extra effort and beat all the bosses by not killing them or meeting all the conditions set in the quest (e.g., you collected all the stuff that you were asked to, etc.), then it is a good way of beating them and you will get the good ending. Thus, there are 3 different final bosses. If you accomplished the round with a good or a bad ending, then you will hear different sounds. That is not the case for the neutral ending. Furthermore, the events after the rounds depend on the way you defeated the boss as well.
-Plot twists! (If somebody cares about the plot anyway)
-Easter eggs!
-Plenty of possibilities to talk with the NPCs (in some cases they don't talk rubbish :D)
-Different endings depending on your gameplay
-12 heroes and relevant class items for them
-Difficulty of the game depends on the number of players taking part in the game

Chinese Translation v2.5a:
BlackSheep

A short introduction to the plot:
Every magic world is always a nice place until some super-villain shows up and tries to destroy it. This time, your world is being attacked by Naberius, Lord of the Abyss, and his demonic legions. You, heroes, have been summoned by sorcerers of the Resistance to stop the countless armies of demons and undead. Your main goal is to help the Resistance in fighting Naberius and finding ways of banishing him forever.

In this world, you will make new friends and face deadly enemies. Beware though! You might not even suspect this, but every choice you make can save somebody's life... or ruin it.

-Friendly fire is allowed now (interconnected with the first bug)

You could hide the credits in the description to ease the reading. 1. Undine Udvart doesn't have a circle of power. Trying to choose him might be confusing. 2. Skip cinematic scenes directly to the dialogue buttons would be appreciated. Seems to be...

    Looks really interesting from the trailer! FLashy and nice.
    I might try to get some inspiration here, as I'm trying to create bosses myself. :)

    Seems to be working properly. It's exactly what it says it is a map where you fight boss after boss (diverse and spectacular in what eye candy is concerned); customizing your stats, choosing from a number of items and heroes to win.

    Set to Approved.

    Yes! You can find and download version v2.2 (which was in Russian) on both EpicWar and Wc3 Maps, as far as I remember.

    Well, technically yes, there were a couple of significant changes in the endings and plot lines. Moreover, 2.4 has much less leaks and is a bit more efficient and faster than 2.2. However, you can use the Russian version to get used to heroes and skills and then switch to the English version.

    We (me and Nemesis4322) have been thinking about that as well. That's a thing to come up in a next version, then :)

    Could you explain me how to play this map? I'm play in single player and there is no quests that I can handle alone. Is this map only oriented for full party?

    Yes, this map is for a collective team-play. But worry not, next version will have a two-player mode, which is much easier to play

    There is a bug with ranged units,(tried archer and mage). They can't attack a monster directly from range. If I click on an enemy unit, my hero just goes closer and hits like a melle unit...

    EDIT: Calling me a "faggot" for cheating is a stupid and immature thing to do

    O___o that's a weird bug indeed. Never happened to me before. Did you use the right mouse button or just clicked "A"?

    If I click A on a unit, my hero goes close and range doesn't work.

    If I use A (or even hold position, or just stop) the range works.

    Oh! Thank you very much for reporting this. I know what's the issue then (it's the friendly-fire prevention system being bugged) and I will fix it.

    Hi i was playing this map until 1.29, there is a bug where all bosses repeatedly reproduce their voices and skills, anywhere of the map and definitely can't play the map
