Shards of Resistance: The Raiders

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



A single-player campaign based on Lord Soze's classic campaign of the same name.
The story follows the conflict between the surviving Blackrock clan, the human kingdoms
of the Northlands and the Vampire Lords of Khemri.

The campaign was remade from the ground up, featuring high-definition models and some redone
cutscenes. I'm aware of issues with the finale, but alas, this is merely a remake. Anyway, enjoy!






























- Updated campaign's HIVE profile page



- Updated with new HD models
- Reworked some of Bauer's dialogue
- Replaced Kobayashi's bugged Firebolt spell
- Minor visual enhancements in the terrain and cutscenes



- Released





This campaign was made with Warcraft III patch 1.27 and not Reforged.
Due to some players have different versions of the game, which may result in possible crashes,
I've decided to have all the levels unlocked.

Broken campaign. Original creator says "improvements" make some levels unfinishable. "Improver" admits he didn't test the campaign without using cheat codes. Broken trigger in the level with infinite trog respawns (which is pathetic in itself).

Looks like an interesting plot. Original campaign is probably worth checking out. This version isn't worth your time though.

I saved this map file in the campaign folder of warcraft 3. It doesent show in the custom campaign section of warcrft 3.... so i am confused. The only reason why i assumed it was a campaign is because thats what people where calling it. I also extracted the map filed with winzip and it still doesent work sooo...... how to i play this map?

Nice campaign really like it ... But there are some bugs especially this fireball bug with the raider warchief.. i mean it lags like hell if you cast it 2 times : (
9/10 because of some bugs but still one of the best campaigns
you can play this map by adding .w3n at the end of the file's name

Absolutely Brilliant!
The best custom campaign by a wide margin.

*however*

Kobayashi's fireball spell creates a massive memory leak for me that can't be fixed with a map reload or even restarting FT. I assume this is a version conflict. Does anyone have a fix for this?

UPDATE:
Having played this campaign through, it is truly broken.
Insanely imbalanced missions and wildly confusing terrain.
Such a shame. The cinematics are beautiful and the models and custom doodads are great.

Great orc skins, good story, several bugs, some hard levels(I must use cheats on one to survive).
5/5

Best campaign I have ever played, I must say. The cinematics were awesome, and the music made me to feel like I'm watching a great movie. Kobayashi's fireball made my game so LAGGY!, so It was harder to fight without that DPS from It. There were some bugs and issues but It wasn't annoying. Anyway, Campaign is the best of the best. 20/10

Joined up just to post here! Better than average Warcraft Campaign!

The memory leak from that fireball spell is an absolute bint but everything else is fantastic, especially the cinematics! Rather unnecessarily difficult at times but that's just one person's opinion.

There could be better directions in many of the levels, like the one where you defend the canyon especially. I just kinda got dropped in with this huge base and map without a clue as to what I should be doing. I didn't know whether to erect towers or build units or what and it made everything very confusing.

That's just a fraction of my experience, though. I want to mention in closing that the terrain is incredibly designed, and it was enjoyable to explore every corner of the maps.

At the first mission, the game is unplayable because after engaging the first "wave" of undead the fps drops down and the game is like I said, unplayable. Is it to you guys too or does it happen only to me? That's too bad. :( I really wanted to play this campaign because I heard it is the 4th from Joe's Chronicles.

EDIT: Oh, it seems the fireball spell is bugged, that's why it makes the game drop fps. I will come back with a review after finishing the campaign.

This campaign looks really good. I've played som missions and I'm loving it. But I have a problem that I wonder if someone else has had.
When I play it at hard difficulty it reallys slows down even if I change resolution and other graphis stuffs. I have tried with very loooow resolution but nothing. I understand that quality of the campaign is high and sometimes the number of the enemies is elevate but it is still very odd isnt't? Besides I have a very good laptop with a last-generation nvidia so... It's weird that warcraft3 is pushing it to the limit. I have no such problems with starcraft2... When I play the first mission at hard it starts slow down after some seconds but it doens't do it at normal even it the number of the enemies at the beginnig of the map it seems to be the same. Second mission: no problem but the third one start to slow down when you get to run the orcish base and take down the undead while taking the heroes to the oracle. Does the campaign-editor knows something about this?

I've read only now the previous comment about the blizzard updates as cause of it, isn't there something that can be done to avoid the problem?

Fps problem

Allright, I got it now. It's , ac Cioco said, the fireball thing. There is no such problem in the second mission because Kobayashi is not in it. Let's play it now :)

I'm glad all's well now. ^^
One month passed since I've started playing this campaign, and I didn't finish it. I was stuck half month at the 7th mission, and now I'm stuck at the last one. XD It is very hard.

EDIT:
FINISHED IT!!! I've FINISHED IT!!! FINALLY!!!!
Instead of writing the bugs I've found, and the bad things, I will just ignore them in this "review". Because, at the moment, I just don't care!!! After so much time being stuck at mission 7, then the last one, I just can't believe I'm done!
It was an amazing experience. Great job, author! Mission 7 was indeed hard, but just because you need to use your brain a little for a sound strategy, but then the last one was just unnecessarily hard, but, as I said, I don't care! It was amazing! Once again, great job! ^^
And, answering to the question at the end of the campaign (tho I know it will never happen), yea I'D LOVE TO SEE A SEQUEL! XD
And DUDE, the last cinematic was so BADASS!!! Because of the little bugs found here and there, and for the last mission, I will rate 4/5. But man, if this would've had no technical issues or bugs, and if the last mission would have been a little easier, this would've been my favorite custom campaign ever!
