  1. You got it right.😄 Indeed, although it is interesting to finally see in a non-Stronghold game troops being able to climb the walls, it cannot beat any Stronghold game in which you can setup your defenses in so many ways; by doing so in Stronghold, you do not simply get that extra resistance for troops on the walls, but you plan yourself how to protect your troops better and, of course, how to cripple the enemy better.😄 So much different, and let's not even start about other things. I would still prefer to spend some free time with Warlords than with AoE4 - even if I had AoE4 right now. Thank you Nigel! And indeed, working with students is fun. Too bad I never used the chance to make my grammar school students form a Stronghold Crusader clan, that would have been interesting to see.😄
  2. I agree, Stronghold Legends is a good example how Firefly made a game with factions. They could have used Game of Thrones as inspiration, though like you said, that TV show has ended years ago, and not to mentioned how they messed up the last several seasons, especially the final one. That's why I have a feeling that Game of Thrones is going to be soon forgotten. I mean, I expect it to be remembered as a TV show everybody watched at some moment. But I don't think it's going to be a show people will ever come back to re-watch. Exactly, Stronghold through time sounds interesting. They could make it start in the Early Middle Ages, and up until Renaissance - when strongholds still didn't differ much from those from Middle Ages. Thanks for the suggestions! Yes, I remember you mentioning it before, but now you reminded me.🙂 And yes, same with me with Stronghold Warlords, I still didn't use the chance to fully enjoy the new game.😄 Thank you for your sympathy. Now, it's been a year since your loss, but condolences for your family member loss too.
  3. It's similar for me. I used to think what a Stronghold game with different factions would look like - if those factions were made in a way more similar to Age of Empires, where one cannot use the best of each faction in a single game. Right now the game seems to be too much CPU demanding, so it is likely that I will have no choice but to wait until getting hands on a better CPU... Well, unfortunately, not everything was going smoothly with health in my family.😟 My grandmother had got covid in October, but she is fine now and getting better. She needed to be hospitalized, she was in the hospital for almost two weeks. So happy she's back on track now, being able to do basing stuff on her own now... The other thing is that my girlfriends father got diagnosed with cancer in July; we were struggling so hard to help him, the girlfriend was doing everything she could, but he passed away two weeks ago... I don't know how things are going in other countries, but it is really harsh here in Serbia, and it is extremely important to stay healthy - and avoid getting covid. Not just for covid itself, but because when somebody has any serious health issue, before admitting him into hospital, first thing they do is doing the covid test. And they are positive, they don't want to mix him with patients who are negative on covid, and thus they don't receive the proper treatment. As if they are admitted into hospital, being put together with other covid patients, and with their condition being monitored by doctors who treat covid and not their primary illness. Similar thing happened to my girlfriends father, who caught covid in the hospital. Anyway, things can be different in other countries, especially in the West, but surely covid makes things harder everywhere in the world. As for life as a Professor, I should soon become an Assistant Professor at my faculty. I should be signing the contract in the following weeks; fingers crossed! In the meantime, I've been mostly doing exercises with students and doing research, which are both very interesting to me. In the next semester, I should be able to give lectures on my own - to be "the professor".😊 But that's just some things that come after hard work and with "a little bit" of luck, but really, the most important thing is to stay healthy, especially these days with covid.
  4. Hey guys! Many of us have surely noticed Age of Empires 4 being released recently. Usually there would be less reason to talk about it here; however, it got my attention that walls in Age of Empires 4 are more useful than in any other Age of Empires game before considering that ranged units can be sent atop the walls. This way, those units on the wall should receive only 1/3 of the damage, if I'm not wrong. It's still far from any Stronghold game, though, but I thought it's something worth our attention.😁 Have any of you got the game? I still haven't, I plan to wait for a discount. Plus, I'm not sure how it is going to work with my Ryzen 3 CPU. Possibly, it won't work at all, but I would definitely give it a shot. How are you guys doing?
  5. That's cool! At first when I saw the picture you posted, I thought this was a screenshot from the game, but this is cool nevertheless. Though, knowing Firefly, it is possible that something like this appeared in the game too.😎
  6. This looks really good! Good work indeed! If I may notice, now Stronghold Crusader suddenly looks like Stronghold 3.[emoji41] Sent from my Mi A2 Lite using Tapatalk

  8. You can post a link to your channel, but you could also put it into your signature. Also, from time to time when you make some interesting video that you particularly want to share with others, you can tell us about this specific video.🙂
  9. Exactly!😄 Also, if my lord gets wounded, even if the hospital is in the other corner of the map, I would send him there - no questions asked!😄
  10. Hi, I just wanted to point that, when I try to post a message with a YouTube link, I get the following message. Now, this message does not appear when I put the youtube link in the URL BB tag, it appears only when I just copy/paste the link. That's when the forum tries to embed the video into the post. I try posting the link in this topic. Not much of a problem, it's not important for me to embed the video into a post, I don't care about that at all. But still, I think it's important to tell because of others.🙂
  11. Hey guys, check out this video. If you don't have much time, just skip to the last minute where Abbot attacks and kills Caliph. From this video you can see how good job they are doing with the Unofficial Crusader Patch. First, both Abbot and Caliph have stronger castles. Then, Abbot uses pikemen and swordsmen beside monks. He even uses siege towers. And finally, when you see the last battle, you will notice how larger armies are gathered, and it appears to me that the AI is much smarter when attacking; he goes straight to kill, not sending his troops all around. Though, the other thing one could notice is that two patches are applied here - Stronghold Europe (or Stronghold Germany, as it's called here, I don't know if there's a difference), and the Unofficial Crusader Patch. The Unofficial Crusader Patch has become quite popular, it seems. Even Firefly has made a video on YouTube about it few weeks ago.
  12. This is cool, thanks Nigel! They are bringing some nice features into the game. I like the way they are introducing the hospital for example. Some suspect how now is everybody going to fight for the warlords with the hospital, but I think it's yet to be seen. Those who just want to rush their opponents might not care much about it, while those who like to "turtle" during the game will love the new feature, I think.🙂 Either way, it is something I wanted to have in every single Stronghold game.😎
  13. Bandicam did the job well for me. Although, like I said, I'm not sure if you are going to need to buy the full version. You would need to test it. As for cracked versions of any program, this community has strict policy regarding piracy. Any seeking for help about how to "crack" a program is forbidden. Keep that in mind. Both asking for help with piracy and providing any sort of help about that is forbidden. As for free programs, maybe you could try Apowersoft Online Screen Recorder. It works online, you do need to install some small piece of software however, a plugin or something, but it has very few limitations (if any). I used it for something else recently. Hopefully it can record Stronghold Crusader, too.
  14. I realize this is not an answer to your question, but perhaps you may want to try with a different video recording software.🤔 You may try to play the game in windows mode, but even then the final result wouldn't be as good as if you recorded it "properly". Though, I must say I realize your trouble. I'm guessing you're trying to do it by some free software, and many of them have some limitations. Mostly you notice them only when you try them - when you see, for example, that maximum length of the recording is, say, 15 minutes... If you don't find any other solution, you may even try with Skype for example! Make a video call to yourself, share your screen, and record it. That has it's downsides too. I like Bandicam for example! You may want to try it, and maybe even the free version does the job for you!
