RELEASE NOTES

This is the first release of the Empire of the Eagle custom campaign. It has got to the stage where I am too close to it and need someone else's eyes to see whether it's any good or not! I'm also sick of always knowing what my opponent is going to do. So, if you're so inclined, download the campaign and give it a try.

Notes

It has been designed for Hotseat and PBEM++ play - I haven't done any AI work with it, so I have no idea how it would play as Single Player.
I am not a graphics expert (as you will see from the graphical edits I have made!) If you'd like to have a go at improving them, especially the icons, feel free to.
The Strategy Guide is under construction and included here as an introduction only.
Please add any comments here or PM me if you like.

I have started a PBEM++ game with the password of 'Eagle' - first in gets the game.

================================ ORIGINAL POST ==================================
This is an introduction for the fantasy campaign that I am working on. It is far from finished and not even at beta stage yet but I am just testing the waters to see if there is much interest in this kind of thing out there.

In this screen shot the bleaklands of Guartenheim (bottom-right) prepare to launch an assault into Guildford through the tunnels dug by purple worms through the Herculein Mountains. Meanwhile, Draca the Dreadwyrm has launched a surprise attack against the Kingdom of Angnord in the north. As you can see from the mini-map, this is just a part of what is going on in the Upper World.

The pretender, Imhotep, prepares to launch a 3-pronged attack against The Ancients.

I'm still in testing mode and fixing things as I go - I hope to be able to start some beta testing with players (it is only designed for PBEM++ or Hotseat) in the new year.

The custom campaign is ready for testing. I'm not sure if this is called alpha or beta release! It should work, at least, so let's go with Beta 1.00. Cheers

Extract the files to your [User]\Documents\My Games\Strategic Command WWII - World at War\Campaigns folder (it should create a folder under that _Empire of the Eagle.

You should then see it when you go to a Hotseat or PBEM++ game.

So, you can see the _Empire of the Eagle folder under the \Campaigns folder and it has the campaign.ini and other files in it? If you can I have no suggestions of what's wrong.

Hi El Condoro,

Great looking mod from the screenshots

One issue I see with the download zip file is when I extract it extracts the 'contents' of the '_Empire of the Eagle' campaign subfolder, and not the subfolder itself with the contents contained within it. This will require players to create that subfolder themselves and then place the contents within the subfolder etc. which is likely going to be confusing.

Also, the actual campaign file, the CGN file is missing from this as well.

Hope this helps,
Hubert

That's the reason! I have fixed the download.

It also answers my question if anyone is actually playing this - obviously not! Cheers
