  1. Hi Blanko2, thanks for your question. I have to be honest when I say this is the first time I've ever heard of this bug as well. To confirm you've definitely referring to mission 4 (with the Wolves)? https://www.stronghold-nation.com/article/300-sim-campaign-mission-4-outlaws?_fromArticle=1 Or did you mean Mission 5 with Sir William's Castle? I'm presuming you've tried the mission a few times to make sure it wasn't just a one-off bug, but I guess another question is does this bug happen anywhere else in the game, or just this mission?
  2. This is a great question! When it comes to things like Cats, I usually attempt to manually dismantle them with troops, or take them out via powerful long-ranged troops. The only other real way is either wall-mounted rolling logs, or usually some kind of fire, which can destroy them exceptionally fast. Horse Archers are a major pain. I've been decimated by those far more times than I'd like to admit by @ Mathew Steel .... especially when in larger groups. I have a really efficient tactic of spawning Knights very fast, so Tom decided to start spawning many Horse Archers to combat them.. and, to be fair it works, quite well. I find Fire Ballistae work really well in dispensing Horse Archers. Catapults and Ballistae are much easier to destroy unless in particularly large groups, but I'm quite traditional in that I always believe in taking out the siege equipment first. I tend to send melee troops out to destroy these units or harass them with guerilla warfare to wear them down and then take them out. Hope this helps!
  3. Yeah if you're using Steam it's unlikely this particular version will work as it was made for the disc version I believe. Unfortunately as I'm not the mod creator I'm not really sure what more I can do for you, unless @ LORD_VALROY can confirm he's made a version compatible with Steam?
  4. This is a known issue unfortunately, as Microsoft doesn't know who the Publisher is. This link might help you with that: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/unblock-an-untrusted-publisher-in-windows-10/e964eea4-d357-4e56-aacc-94088642c7ac
  5. And a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you too Nigel and all of our other members and guests! Let's hope 2022 brings us a much better and more prosperous year than the previous two that we've had. Onwards and upwards to better health, better times and of course to some decent games of Stronghold! 🏆 Now... how about a trip to The Open Castle Inn? 😀
  6. So I'm not entirely sure what was going on here for you but I uploaded the file and within about 10 minutes it fully uploaded for me. The only thing I did was remove the backup files from the archive because they're official game files that the player already has and shouldn't really be posted anywhere. It sounds like it's some kind of issue with your internet connection, I'd perhaps recommend checking with your ISP to make sure you're getting the correct speed. You can view your file here: https://www.stronghold-nation.com/downloads/file/656-stronghold-crusader-night-mod/
  7. One of the reasons I like Stronghold Legends so much is because of the factionalism in the game actually. I wish there were more games like that as it puts a really nice spin on the game. It would be cool to have a "Game of Thrones" Stronghold version or something speaking of factions.... although it ended soooo long ago now there's almost no point. We need a new saga to binge now! Speaking of that.... what about the idea of a "Stronghold Through Time". You could play through the different ages building up civilisations as you go. That would be pretty cool IMO. Re Age of Empires... have you looked on CD Keys? I can see one for as cheap as £32 on there. They always have games way cheaper than Steam, I actually got my copy of Warlords from there the night it came out. I intended to pay the higher price via Steam to support Firefly, but when Steam's servers were crashing and not letting anyone buy Warlords, I got it way cheaper from there instead. I still haven't had a chance to properly play it after 6+ months of the "computer saga" (which FINALLY thankfully seems to have come to an end) but I keep meaning to 😀 Sorry to hear about your grandmother but I'm pleased she's recovering now. I lost a family member to covid about a year ago and it's not nice. And condolences for the loss of your girlfriend's father too.

  9. Yes that's fine. FYI I can't access your Google Drive link above, you need to make it public.
  10. Yes no problem, send it to chris [at] stronghold-nation [dot] com attached via Drive or Dropbox or something. It's too big to be sent via email attachment.
  11. Thanks for letting me know about this and sorry for the issues you're experiencing - I've checked the logs and I can't find any errors anywhere. It's possible this may be down to your internet connection speed..... do you have a good connection usually? It is also quite a large file, so this could be part of the reason too. If you haven't specifically received an error, it should still be uploading. I'd really appreciate it if you could give it one more try and see if that works for you - I'd just let the uploader keep running until it provides some error or response. If you get an error or something unexpected happens, please do copy it and let me know what it is though as it will massively help. If not, feel free to send it to me via email/PM (probably via Google Drive or something) and I'll look into what is causing the issue and upload it under your account for you.
  12. You should be able to attach it to the post as you type, but you could also email it to me on chris [at] stronghold-nation [dot] com
  13. Hello Lord Chris,

    I don't usually join forums, but I have a huge problem with a map I am building in SH2 and don't have the required content to send a DM, so you're getting a public comment :-P

    I can't find a solution anywhere else, but I keep seeing your comments solving many other issues.

    Basically, after a certain amount of time (seemingly random at first) all the animations in the map freeze but continue to function correctly. Villagers are frozen but still do the work, sliding around everywhere. Same with soldiers and fights. I've never seen it in any map before. The curious thing is that as I searched through older files of the same map the problem was always there, but only after more time. So the freeze happens sooner on my later versions of the map, which is a pain because I am so close to finishing the most unique and intriguing map you've probably ever seen, and could probably still show you new things in the map editor, even after all these years!I'm trying to upload a GIF to show you what I mean but it's not having it. Check my Steam profile (SteelyProv)

    I can send you a copy of the map if you like, but I don't want to post it public...yet.

    I'm running Steam 1.5

      I replied to your topic here:


  14. I'm moving this topic to the Stronghold Crusader forum & merging it with your existing one. Also the links you've added go to a non-English website with no download button, but a lot of advertisements with links that do look like download buttons. As this is an English speaking website primarily, I'm removing the links for security reasons until there is a clear way to download them that is readable to the majority of our members.
  15. @ JustAVillager , You've been warned about your conduct on this forum a number of times now, all for varying reasons. You've also been explicitly told on more than one occasion to put more thought into your posts & not to post meaningless content. You've also been warned that if you do not start following the forum rules and putting effort into your threads then they will be closed. Let me be clear: Nobody has the absolute right of reply on this forum. All staff are volunteers, including myself. We choose to answer questions based on our time available, our knowledge and genuine desire to help people. The fact you're demanding a reply from me within 3 hours of posting the topic is not only unreasonable but also entirely unacceptable to expect that from any member. The attitude you're repeatedly demonstrating is one of severe entitlement, impatience and spammy in nature. You're not respecting the forum rules, which you've also been pointed to on many occasions, and you appear to have no respect for anyone or anything on the community other than yourself. Based on these breaches I'm banning you from posting any content on the community for 7 days. Once this time has expired, all content by you must be approved by a Moderator for a further month to ensure you're following the forum rules. We will use additional moderation tools and permanently ban your account if this becomes necessary. I am closing the thread.
