  1. I'm delighted to announce and inform members that after many years worth or work we now have detailed Walkthroughs, and corresponding saved games, for every single Stronghold Legends Campaign Mission and Skirmish Trail that was ever made, including the bonus content publicly released by Firefly in 2016 for the first time. You can find all of these guides under the following page on the main site: https://www.stronghold-nation.com/games/stronghold-legends/walkthroughs Or instead you can head over to our Stronghold Legends section -> Mission Walkthroughs via the main site. Hopefully you find as much enjoyment out of reading them that we did in writing them! 🙂
  2. Totally, I have two Windows machines at the moment. Ironically, they both came originally with Windows 10 pre-installed but I removed it. One I bought in 2015 runs better on Windows 7 than Windows 8, and the other I bought two years ago and I use for work mainly, which uses Windows 8. To be honest, I'm going to stop using Windows altogether soon and just go to Linux instead. I already use it for my business anyway so it just makes sense - plus there's software you can use called Wine that will allow you to run Windows programs on Linux machines. I've already checked and all the Stronghold games are compatible. Happy days 😆 The so-called "security vulnerability" (KB3086255) that Microsoft fixed by disabling SecuROM was physical to the machine so you'd need disk drive access to exploit it anyway. I honestly don't know whether a digital download would work so that's an interesting question actually. My immediate instinct would say it probably wouldn't work, but if games are still being sold via a digital version then maybe there's some workaround that exists. In Windows 7 & 8 you can uninstall the aforementioned update to make it work again, but in Windows 10 the functionality was completely removed. I have heard stories of such workarounds existing in Windows 10, but as I've never really used it I can't comment much. As always with Microsoft though you get a lot of smoke and mirrors, particularly when it comes to security.
  3. I'm surprised you could even get it to run the installer with SecuROM in the first place because Microsoft disabled that about 7 years ago, offhand, I think. I'm sure it was September 2015. However I'm pleased you managed to solve the problem.
  4. Did you have the same issue with the retail version? I guess the next step here would be to check and see if any of the buildings you placed in your own estate could be affecting the path the carter takes to the Granary... Stronghold 2 can be weird like that sometimes, particularly with moving invasions. It might be worth trying different building placements, to see if this is having an impact. Try to keep your buildings as clear as possible from the various points the Carter travels to.
  5. 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?
  6. 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!
  7. 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?
  8. 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
  9. 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? 😀
  10. 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/
  11. 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.
  12. https://letmegooglethat.com/?q=make+google+drive+file+public
  13. Yes that's fine. FYI I can't access your Google Drive link above, you need to make it public.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
