Author File Description

Version: The Conquerors 1.0c
Style: Role Playing Only
Number of scenarios: 9
The Lord of the Rings

This is my first ever Campaign, so I hope it's not too bad, and that you like what I have given you so far.

I have tried to recreate Peter Jackson's film of the Lord of the Rings, from beginning to end. (Sorry to all those Tolkien fans, I'm still on the Silmarillion.) I've tried to keep in as many details as possible. There are also many amazing sound flies, which are ESSENTIAL to game play, and 4 cinematic. (The Epilogue is probably the best bit, sadly).

There are only 5 active playable scenarios instead of 6 (yes, the ending is missing. This is because I made this game on a Mac, and they can't use AI. The 6th game is made, all apart from that I can't freeze the huge army.) Rohirrim

I thought I'd just upload what I've made so far to see what you think of it, so be aware that this game IS NOT QUITE FINISHED. I just need your opinions.

As you play the Game, you'll probably notice that the actual games improve in quality as they go on. This is because I've done most of my Age of Empires learning during the making of this game.

I hope you enjoy my first contribution, and merci to all those who download this game. Thank you even more to those who download AND play this game.

I await your comments, Josh Burnell.

Warning, the eights scenario, Return of the King- Part 1 crashes at the game’s start, pause immediately, type ‘I r winner’ and play the Epilogue.

Jburnell, I cannot extract scenarios from a Mac campaign to view the cause of the crash. When I extracted the sounds I received a message that this type of document cannot be handled by its destination. I compared my sound/scenario folder with the .zip’s content. The last 10 sounds did not extract. The reason is ROTK– «GOLLUM, GOLLUM».mp3. Maybe it is because you use quotation marks for the file name. Edit the crash and the sound and update using the ‘Update’ button above your description. I changed ‘Number of Scenarios’ from 5 to 9, cinematic count as scenario.

Thank you for playing, or at least attempting to play my game. I've updated it, and this time I've added the Scenario file for the Return of the King part 1. It's very annoying that it doesn't work, because it works perfectly on mine, and friend's computers. Maybe there are too many triggers, as well as it being a mac file, so it crashes?
About the sound files - I've removed the speech marks, as you suggested, to see if that helps. However, I think that part of the reason that some files didn't work was because I used the Audacity program to make/edit them, and they were still set to be used with audacity as the default application. I changed the default application to quicktime, so maybe this will help.

The reason why the Return of the King part 2 doesn't work is that it crashes with Immobile Units, even when I tried putting the Ai on it on a PC. Do you have any suggestions?

Do any of the 100 people who have downloaded the game have any answers to the questions above or any comments about the Campaign? I have also included the Scenario file of "Return of the King part 1", can anyone tell me if it works or not?
Also, does anybody know how to get what I have done reviewed?
Thank you, JBurnell

Shimmen jburnell, what is the ".DS_Store" file?
File Author
Ok, I've looked on someone's PC, and the .DS_Store files are strange mac files that just appear when loading the files on PC's. Ignore all the strange files you don't need, and just open the real folder with the game in. I think opening the .DS_Store files will crash your computer, so perhaps don't try to...

Any further comments on the game/what's wrong with the "Return of the King, part 1"?
