Though there is two other custom campaigns "based" off the original AoE1 Trial Campaign, this one was converted directly from the AoE1 Trial maps. So that the terrain features and most stuff is almost exactly the same as in the original except for needed substitutions due to game differences.
Do not ask me if there is a tool that will convert maps for you as I'm pretty sure there isn't one. I did the conversion my self by deleting all non-compatible units from the map prior to opening it in the AoK game. I then re added AoK equivalent units back to the map and make the correct victory/trigger settings. I used the game's map editor to do all the map work and used MS-Paint to fix the scenario instruction maps.
I have tested them all after I completed them and they all are fully playable and victory is obtained the same way as in the original. Only two of the maps actually needed triggers. The rest are standard Conquest modes. In the "Fall of the Mitanni" map, instead of a "Artifact" that you must brink near your base, you must instead garrison the relic at your monastery.
This is the very first campaign I have made of the AoK series. Prior experience with the original AoE game helped get started with this game quicker.
I still didn't played the campaign but after I read the Demolition Ship Captain comment, I could do an AI :)

Great conversion. I would be great to see another conversion of an AOE campaign. Now, I wonder why you chose the Chinese as the civ to represent the Hittites? I think it would be more accurate to use one of the Eastern civilizations.

[quote]You have no idea how much I used to play these demo scenarios before I got AoE1, especially the one shown in the screen shot, where you start with the priest.
Also, I remember very well the one where you get no villagers and your soldiers are scattered everywhere and you'll have to use them to destroy enemy government center. I was always scared of wololoo of those priests behind the wall of enemy base.[/quote]
Same here Popey, we truly are adopted brothers! xD
Well I'd like to play this, but the AoK gameplay and graphics keep me away from it. AoK is AoK and AoE is AoE. The only thing that would make me play this are the AoE graphics in AoK :) AoK has better gameplay, but I like some of AoE graphics more the AoK, even though AoK is mostly better... But if you look at all the possibilities with the AoE graphics, well...
