Song of Spring v1.1b

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

[​IMG]

Two lost children find themselves abandoned,
seemingly forgotten amidst the chaos of wavering seasons,
as the Cold slowly approaches to cover all things...


Entry for the 17th Mini-Mapping Contest.


FOR AN OPTIMAL EXPERIENCE:
- Enable in-game music and sound.
- Turn on environmental effects and enable fog.
- Turn off v-sync, as it can affect cinematics.


Please note:
The map is locked to standard graphics, meaning that anyone running the latest patch of WC3 can play it.



PROLOGUE



[​IMG]
This map is designed for two players, and revolves around one big boss battle.

Green controls Blossom, the Child of Summer.
Orange controls Wither, the Child of Autumn.

Co-operation between players is required to beat the map. I would personally recommend using voice chat for communication, such as discord.

Below you will find a preview of all hero abilities:

Communicate with the other player, and experiment with the abilities so that you may understand the instructions in each message.


- Does the task seem insurmountable? Sometimes the answer lies within the failure itself.

CHANGELOG

Version 1.1

Fixed a bug that was preventing players from starting the game correctly. Instead of showing a menu, the camera would show the hero unit and the map logo at the same time.

Version 1.1b
Fixed a bug where you could still navigate the camera during the first menu screen.

    We tried the map, but we were stuck in the begging with a huge title of the map taking half the screen with black background. Is the first quest to find out how to remove it or is it just a bug? :D

    Do you happen to have any screenshots? There should be two wisps underneath the title, one for watching the prologue, and one for skipping the prologue. I'll download the map again and see if it happens to me.

    EDIT: Well, this really sucks. I have no idea why it does that.

    I have more than that I have a recording here Twitch.
    This happened around 8:15. We tried it again at around 11:30 and still no wisps, at least I didn't see any.

    I've just noticed that at 11:55, when I randomly were moving around, I actually stumbled upon 2 wispy things, but I don't think it should be like that.

    Yeah, I saw how it looked on your stream, and it's currently the same for me. We'll see if I can correct this bug and still remain in the contest, but nevertheless, it really needs to be fixed.

    EDIT: The bug is fixed. I'm currently waiting for the go ahead to update the map

    Good, the map itself looks great, so we will give it a go next time on stream. :D

    Hello, has the upload been fixed? Or are you still awaiting approval? I can delay my judgement on it for a time if you are still waiting.

    Can you upload it as a bundle? I'll go ahead and play it with the fix; if mythic declines the update then i'll take that into account.

    The map is now updated to version 1.1.

    Players should now be able to start the map correctly.

    EDIT: Version 1.1b

    Although not game-breaking, there was still a bug where you could navigate the camera showing the first menu screen.

    This was pretty fun to play. I love the heroes. My favorite bits were the puzzling parts. I think these two would make a really good RPG map, with lots of puzzles and challenges for teleporting and using the songs in interesting ways.

    @Halithor I completely agree! My main regret is not having more puzzles/obstacles during the boss battle itself.

    I'm loving the idea of a big RPG with these guys. :)

    Any way to play it in singleplayer (shared units between the players)?

    @deepstrasz Sadly, no. I've actually been thinking about how it could be implemented without affecting the intense, fluid and precise gameplay that you get with two players. Sadly, I don't think it can be done without changing the entire bossfight.

    Maybe down the line I'll create a singleplayer version of the bossfight with a heavier focus on puzzle elements, which would give you enough time to control two units
