Macbeth

Version: The Conquerors 1.0c
Style: Build and Destroy
Number of scenarios: 4

MACBETH, King of Scotland


Scotland, 1039:


The kingdom was in turmoil. Rebellion raged across the land. King Duncan relied upon his two generals, Macbeth and Banquo, to quell the uprisings and maintain order in the nation. But Macbeth, having heard rumour of a prophecy, had his own plans.


Few characters have caught the popular imagination like Macbeth. Was he a conniving rogue, as Shakespeare would argue, or one of the nation's greatest kings, as some Scots nationalists have recently argued? Spanning four scenarios, the Macbeth campaign may help you decide.


Follow the career of Brother Gregory, a young Franciscan friar who witnessed the events first-hand. Experience game-play elements including



  • Over 160 custom sound files,

  • Two avis,

  • Custom bitmaps,

  • Very realistic maps,

  • Gripping gameplay,

  • Over twenty custom ais,

  • All difficulty levels supported,

  • A comprehensive history section,

  • The full text of Shakespeare's play, and

  • A total file size of less than 5MB.


Some comments from respected scenario designers who've viewed the campaign:


"It's a very enjoyable campaign. There's no doubt that this will be in the Best of the Blacksmith." Stephen_Richards, winner of the 2005 Age of Kings Heaven's "Historical Campaign Contest"


"The game was perfectly balanced for a casual player... This is simply as good as b&d gets in my humble opinion" Oliver, author of 'Lightning and Thunder, the teaser" (5.0 at the Blacksmith) and 'Teuton in Love" (4.8 at the Blacksmith)


"Good luck on your project too, it looks promising to be one of the 'greats' released this year" Mashek331, author of "The Feud Between Two Kindoms" (4.8 at the Blacksmith).


I hope you enjoy Macbeth


Cheers, Dave_Earl


Version 1.01: Non-critical update. Cheat function updated in Scenario 1 to prevent players inadvertently winning. Some grammar and spelling errors in about.html and Scenario 1 victory screen.
Version 1.10: Recommended for beginner players who are struggling on "Standard" difficulty. "Standard" difficulty made significantly easier. The computer now attacks less frequently, attacks with less troops, and builds fewer troops to defend in seige-type scenarios. Some small bugs on level three (training villagers at the barracks and a cliff graphics issue) are fixed. Some other small modifications.

Rangar Dave, this review is going to take a while I have completed two levels on moderate so far though I do not have as much time as anticipated expect the review next week. I also intend to play on the two other difficultly levels as well.

steffenlaursen and oliver, in 'Single Player', go to 'Options', click 'New' to introduce a new player name and all scenarios play.

I do not know how this bug happens; probably the memory is 'full'. The game engine 'remembers' all scenarios played and all games saved with a player name.
Super_Cell_51 I've had the same bug on Ulio and some other campaigns. Haven't had it here yet. Rangar, if you want a challenge, you can't go wrong with Macbeth. It is one of the most challenging B&D campaigns I've played in a long time. To Dave_Earl: I am currently working on a review also. May take a couple of days, since I don't have all that much time to play right now. But so far I am loving this campaign and I have no doubt that this will be a Five...

rwilde I too will be playing and reviewing over the next week or two - it looks very good and I'm really excited about it.
Super_Cell_51 Whoa! I didn't even defeat Duncan(game time == 2:30 minutes) Does the first scenario always end like that? (Three wierd sisters part) Is it possible to defeat Ducan?

rwilde The first scenario took me around 4 hours, I think I was a bit slow. I didn't require to reload, though that was lucky, because I didn't save. It finishes when you defeat the two players and ends with the witch scene.
Super_Cell_51 What did you say rwilde? You defeated both enemies? How is that possible.?.

Hi everyone,

@SuperCell51: The objective of scenario 1 is to defeat Macdowland (Orange) and Norway (Purple). As rwilde said, defeat those two and you'll view the end cut-scence (which it seems you have) and progress to the next scenario.

You don't need to defeat Duncan! He's YOUR King!

Good luck at Durham.

Dave.
Super_Cell_51 Thanks Dave.

I think I found a bug then.:S

I had played for 2 hours and 30 minutes, and all the suddenly when my unit(scout) moved near the forest by the wierd sisters it showed the witches scene and said "You are Victorious"
and then it was over. I didn't even defeat McDowland.

EDIT: I hadn't even attacked McDowland yet...

I've discussed this in some detail in the Macbeth thread in the Scenario Design Forum:
