Derfel Cadarn This file appears to be plagiarised. I did not play it in full but it seems to be an unmodified resubmit from the old Scn Punk campaign/scenario. I remember in particular because the original was memorable (the design of Orleans was one of the first good attempts at a living city for AoK) and yet inaccurate, by using many very un-French names for French characters (such as Jack and Karl). This is exactly as I remembered it.

I cannot find the original in the Blacksmith, oddly enough, but it was talked about here: http://aok.heavengames.com/cgi-bin/aokcgi/display.cgi?action=ct&f=4,9708,0,all

It was entered into one of the ES historical campaign contests, but as those sites have disappeared I can't seem to find the original. As for evidence, with the original file gone it's hard to check, but apart from my memory there's another, perhaps more convincing, piece of evidence: the file says it was last edited on the 21st May 2001 - the exact same day the topic I linked to was posted.

It's good to have such a quality file brought to the Blacksmith at last, but it's a shame that the uploader has not credited the original creators at all.

i_like_h3ll this map was neaver uploaded, if I wanted to change the date of creation was enough for me to add a house and save the map again as campaign. This is a very beautiful game, uploaded only to be played, and there isnt the name of the first creator, so i can't give credits

Kor, thank you for bringing it to our attention. It will be looked into as soon as possible.

As you can see, the file's author has been changed. This is a map that was created by the heavengames user by the name of DeKont in 2001.

I_Like_H3ll, I am disappoint.

If the map is not yours, you should know better than upload it and try to take part in a competition, not giving any credit to the original author. I have no idea if you changed anything to the game, but since the original had around 600 triggers, it is pretty obvious your contribution was close to (if not) zero.

I have contacted DeKont. At this point it is up to him whether this map stays here or not. But I won't delete it just yet. FIrst off, because it is a good map. And second, because there is not better punishment than for people to have a clear idea of what you did, and maybe you will think twice next time.

Also, it is pretty obvious that this entry to the ES remake competition cannot be validated and I am sure the ESRC host (Jatayu) feels the same way.

Sir, I don't believe you have any say in this.
i_like_h3ll this map is mine unless there is already uploaded

i_like_h3ll, perhaps examining the comments above might prove useful. The scenario is not yours as you plagiarized DeKont's work. Whether or not it had already been uploaded to the Blacksmith is not relevant. I advise you to watch your tone regarding this matter.

DeKont has agreed to the scenario staying at the Blacksmith on his username, even though he doesn't use the account anymore. So yes, it will stay here, and yes, it will stay with its REAL author.

This is where it ends. Any further comments on the issue will be moderated.
